He was the son of James Craig who came to the United States in 1790 and settled with his family in Orange County, NY. James Craig founded the hamlet of Craigville in the Town of Blooming Grove, and built a paper mill. Hector Craig later built a grist mill and a saw mill. In 1797, he married Sarah Chandler, and their daughter was Sarah Agnes Craig who married in 1828 William F. Havemeyer, later three times Mayor of New York City.
