Andrew Graham born unknown (possibly in 1803 in Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, Kentucky; or maybe in 1801 in Fincastle, Botetourt County, Virginia; the Fincastle portion of the Graham family moved a bit later to Crab Orchard, it is thought); Andrew died probably before 1830 (probably young, in his 20’s) in probably Fleming County, of Kentucky; Andrew married Elizabeth Northcott (some say Northcutt) born 1807 in Flemingsburg, Fleming County, Kentucky and she died in 1888 in possibly Union, in probably Montgomery County, Indiana, as she is buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery, Union, Montgomery County, Indiana (It is said by family (‘Early History of Hillsboro’ By Rev. H. C. Northcott, Elizabeth’s brother) that Andrew Graham died, leaving Elizabeth (Northcott Graham) with two small boys, James and Nathan. They then lived at her father’s until Elizabeth married second John McDaniel, a widower, when they removed to Indiana, near Crawfordsville, where he later died. Elizabeth and her sons then lived in Crawfordsville until her death); Andrew and Elizabeth married on May 27, 1821 in Fleming County, Kentucky (some say May 27, 1824).
Andrew and Elizabeth Northcott Graham had 2 sons:
1. James A. Graham born about 1824-25 in probably Fleming County, of Kentucky and it is thought that he possibly died August 13, 1873 in probably Montgomery County, Indiana at age 49 years – possibly buried Oak Hill Cemetery, Union, Montgomery County, Indiana;
It is thought that he married Evelyn ‘Eva’ Elizabeth Carr (she was also called ‘Evelin’ or Emilynn or Emelyn or ‘Evaline’ with middle initials of S. or L.) born November 1837 in Indiana and died before June 2, 1922 in probably Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana – buried Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana (buried as Elizabeth Paul with her second husband George Paul) –
James and Eva Graham married August 03, 1855 in Montgomery County, Indiana.
James was a successful dry goods merchant in Crawfordsville, as was his brother Nathan.
2. Nathan L. Graham born about 1827 in probably Fleming County, of Kentucky (Indiana in the 1850 and Kentucky in the 1860 and 1870 Censuses) and he died before 1876 in Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana at the age of 49 years or less; he married Mary M. Beard who was born in 1832 in either Washington, Wayne County or more likely Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, of Indiana and died January 08, 1876 in Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana at age 44 years – they were married November 11, 1852 in Montgomery County, Indiana.
Nathan was a pioneer merchant of Crawfordsville.
I would appreciate any further information on the Graham family, as I have hit a brick wall with Nathan and James' ancestors.
