  2. Your posts are very interesting. I too am searching my Graham lineage. It dates back to the mid 1800’s in Missouri when Rutha Graham was born and married James Pelham. Rutha was the daughter of John B. Graham. I was told he was referred to as “Ole Black John”. I have no idea why other than he lived to be quite old, I’m told.Rutha had several siblings. I don’t have the specifics in front of me and it’s late.

    1. Carol, thanks for leaving a comment. The names in your post don’t ring any bells with me. Maybe we’re researching two different sets of Grahams, or maybe we just haven’t made the connection yet. I wish you luck in your search. Who knows? Maybe some connection will reveal itself here.

      1. Melvin, thank you for commenting.

        Sorry, this is not the same John as the one you mention. As stated in the first paragraph of this article, this John Henry Graham was born in Texas, USA in 1870, more than 100 years after the John you seek.

        Good luck looking for your ancestors!
