Hello I am descended from Robert Graham sr who was born in Banbridge, Down, Ireland around 1738. He was married to Mary Robinson who was also born there around 1742. They had aprox 5 children. I don't know if the children were born in the county tho as the family moved to Fermanagh County (which I tried to join but it appears to be closed for membership? I dunno. Im confused).

I am from their son Robert Graham Jr who was born in either Banbridge, Down, Ireland or Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Ireland in October 1774. He first married Ann Borrow. She died around 1807. He then married Catharine Russell who was born around 1782 in Downpatrick, Down, Ireland. They married in March 1808 and shortly after immigrated to America.

Robert Graham Jr and Ann Borrow had 5 children born in Ireland. I am from their son James.  With Catharine Russell he had 9 children all born in Delaware. Around 1820 the family moved to Illinois where the family has lived ever since on the same land.

James Graham tho joined the LDS church and is buried in Utah. He was born in 1804 in Enniskellin, Fermanagh, Ireland and died in 1857 in Ogden, Utah.

  • Good Morning,

    I beleave after reading your post that we are related. My Great-Great Step-grandfather was John Graham, who's father was Robert. He mariied Euphemia Cloakey (Widow Linn) in 1854. John and Euphemia reloated to the Ayeshire area of Scotland in the 1860's. Euphemia's first husband was James Linn, which I do not have any information on either.  So though both marriages my family uses both the Graham and Linn in our names. Linn being our middle name and Graham being our Last name.

    Do you have any information about either John or Euphemia?

    Thank you for your help.

    Andrew Linn Graham
