Preface.

The writer being in his 79th year, and one of the few liv­ing great grand­chil­dren of John Gra­ham, Sr., the founder of his branch of the Gra­ham fam­ily in this coun­try, and hav­ing been at great pains and con­sid­er­able expense in obtain­ing the infor­ma­tion in the fol­low­ing pages con­cern­ing his ances­tors, he desires to hand down to future gen­er­a­tions the facts as he has col­lected them.

Many of the facts herein related, were not handed down by the line of tra­di­tion, but have been obtained by the writer through spe­cial effort, such as exam­in­ing the county records of var­i­ous coun­ties, and while there are doubt­less many lost links he believes it to be as full an account of his ances­tors as is now obtain­able, and should this brief sketch be the means of grat­i­fi­ca­tion to the present gen­er­a­tion or future gen­er­a­tion, the writer will feel amply repaid.

DAVID GRAHAM.

Octo­ber, 1899.
