Graham Family

Our family’s historical journey begins with James Graham, born around the year 1780 in Dunblane, Perthshire. He was the son of Walter Graham and Elizabeth Stirling. James married Christian McLaren in Stirlingshire about 1816. Christina was born in 1797, in St. Ninians, Stirlingshire, the daughter of Hugh McLaren and Annie Bell. Over the years, James and Christian welcomed eleven children into their family, their births spanning from the early 1820s to the late 1830s. James passed away in 1862, in the town of Denny. Eight years later, Christina, died, also in Denny.
