The Graham Family Edit Text

See Graham (1) for the derivation of the Graham surname.
 
Only one member of this particular branch of Calum's and Jamie's Graham ancestors has been identified in Belfast, Northern Ireland:
Martha Graham  (1827 - 1890) md: James Kane

Martha Graham
b: abt 1827  d: 3/11/1890 
 
Martha Graham was Calum's and Jamie's five times great grandmother.
 
Little is known about Martha. She married James Kane, a labourer, at some point in the mid 19th century, and with whom she had at least five daughters in the Saint Anne's parish in the Shankill. She spent some time residing at Boundary Street from 1858 until the late 1860s and then at 5 Cargill Street. James appears to have died at some stage between 1870 and 1877.
 
By 1877 the head of the household in the Belfast Street directory is Martha Kane. In 1880 she is again down as Martha Kane at 5 Cargill Street, in 1887 as Mrs Kain, and in 1890 as Mrs Kane.
 
Martha died on November 3rd 1890 at 5 Cargill Street, aged 63 and noted as a widow to James Kane, night watchman. The cause of death was bronchtits, suffered for 3 months, and diahorrea & vomiting as suffered for a month. The informant to the registrar a day later was Matilda McTighe, daughter, of 33 Tennent Street, Belfast (Source: GENI D/1890/51/1007/27/410 Belfast Urban 5).
 
Martha was buried after 3pm in City Cemetery on the 6th. The cause of death as noted in the burial record was debility, her religion was noted in the burial record as Presbyterian, and she was a widow. The grave owner was listed as her son-in-law Arthur Taylor, and her grave was in section A Class 5 plot 270 (Source: Belfast City Council burials database).
