The Graham Family
Graham (1) for the derivation of the Graham surname.
Men of Monteith! Yonder's the foemen!
Bare your claymore and follow the bowmen.
See yonder dark host up by yon rill -
The Murrays of Atholl who cover the hill!
They've come from the north to feed on thy spoil,
And see how proudly they tread on thy soil.
But now you will meet them, and drive them afar -
For the kindred of Graeme are gallant in war;
The life of Blair-Atholl ye'll spill like a flood,
Till the eagles of Glenny be drunk on the blood.
On to the fray! and stay only when
The corpses of Atholl lie thick in the glen;
For the Graeme he will conquer or die on the heath,
That glory may dwell on the Lake of Monteith!
The only member of this particular branch of Calum's, Jamie's and Pippa's Graham
ancestors (there are at least four branches) to have been identified so far is of the Perthshire branch based in
the Port of Menteith area, being:
Janet Graham (17?? - ????)
1740 approx - ????
Janet Graham was Calum's, Jamie's and Pippa's
seven times great grandmother.
Little is known of Janet Graham at present. All that
is known is that she married James Paterson on 9th January 1761 in the Port of Menteith, Stirlingshire, Scotland, where together they raised a family.
