Susan,
I wanted to get this information to you, but I can't get to my other computer where I have your email addy.

I have recently obtained Stafford Graham's (Pickens District, SC 1830) Revolutionary War Pension Record.
Stafford Graham was born in Richmond County, NC 1757
Lived in Richmond County then called Cumberland.
Served under Genl Arrington. He received a written discharge at Cross Creek from Capt Hoy (1st), (2nd) at Rockingham from Capt Hathorn, (3rd) Rockingham from Capt Speede. Stafford died 20 Sept 1833.

Elizabeth, Stafford's widow - born 12 Dec 1753!
Married Stafford Nov 1778 in Richmond County, NC by John Bounds, Esq.

They had 10 children, raised 8. Two children named:
Perry (1st) dec'd in 1848
Elizabeth (2nd) born March 1781, and living in Alabama.
The daughter with whom she lived (my ggg grandmother Cinthia Graham Albertson) was her seventh child, was 56 years old. Samuel Albertson was born 27 Jun 1781.

The Stafford Graham family had also lived in Randolph County, NC
