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 Raphoe, County Donegal, Ireland, from the 19th century:
Elizabeth Graham (1??? - 18??) md: John Holmes

Elizabeth Graham
1??? - bef 1879
 
Elizabeth was Calum's Jamie's and Pippa's five times great grandmother.
 
Elizabeth married John Holmes in County Donegal, Ireland, at some stage prior to November 1829. The couple raised a family in the parish of Raphoe, being noted as resident in Sandyhill in 1829, Ballyminister in 1836, and then in Bogagh from at least 1842, possibly earlier. In various records John was noted as a weaver, labourer and a scutcher.
 
In Griffith's Valuation of Donegal in 1857, Elizabeth's husband John was again recorded as living at Bogagh, parish of Raphoe, in a house and garden 10 perches in size leased from James Gardiner. The annual valuation for the land was 2 shillings, and the building 18 shillings, meaning an annual rent of 1.
 
It is not yet known when Elizabeth passed away, although her husband was listed as a widower in his death entry from 1879.
