First words
To the reader—
Having been requested frequently by the younger members of the Graham family to commit to writing an account of their ancestors and their posterity down to the present time, I, being perhaps the oldest one of them, have attempted to do so in the following pages, under the conviction that there may be some mistakes as many of the statements are made from from memory, yet believing that in the main they may be relied upon as correct.
A Short History of the Graham Family
About the year 1774 John and William Graham (brothers) left their native country, Ireland, County Down, near Belfast, and with their families came to the city of New York after a long and perilous voyage of sixteen weeks. Their provisions and water were dealt out to them by measure for some time before they landed. Their captain lost the right course and ran so far north that they came in sight of large bodies of ice, the second in command all the time telling the captain that he was steering the wrong course.
