-Scarborough, Quincy. The Craven Family of Southern Folk Potters: North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri. Fayetteville, N.C: Quincy Scarborough Companies, 2005.

-Purvis, Mary Craven. Craven: Descendants of Peter Craven, Randolph County, North Carolina, USA. Asheboro, N.C.: M.C. Purvis, 1985.
