CRAIG-TRANQUIL, TEXAS. Craig-Tranquil was a church community 3½ miles northeast of Cooper in central Delta County. The area was settled by 1854, when local residents deeded property to the Craig-Tranquil Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The Tranquil school had opened by 1905, when it enrolled twenty-six pupils and employed one teacher. In 1928 this school merged with the nearby Craig Prairie school to form the Craig-Tranquil district. In 1949 this system was divided between the Enloe and Cooper school districts. By 1964 the community was no longer shown on maps.
