I do have some history regarding BERRY D. GRAHAM, he was the 4th child of Elijah & Sarah Graham (Grayham).
From Cornerstone families, pg 570 by Alma Farrar.
Berry born 1797 in NC, went to KY, there he married Sarah Wright d/o thomas Wright, who lived near Greensburg. they moved to Taney Co., MO in 1840 and to ARK four miles south of Fayetteville. They left KY after 1823 and listed in the 1830 census of Izard Co., AR along with his father, Elijah and 3 brothers, John B, Gallant & Freborn. 1850 census of Osage Twp, Benton Co., AR. Berry is age 56, Sarah age 52 bp Va, David 18, Seaburn 16, & Polly 9. Also on page 70 is a Henry Graham age 23 bp Ar, Nancy 21, George 1. Do you know who this family connects?
Berry and Sarah had 9 ch:
William Melvine, Elsy M born in KY. David, Seborn, and an unknown male born in 1841. The other 3 children, Martha, John and Robert.
Info for Elsy M born 1823 Ky married Sarah Jane White b 1825/6 in about 1845 had 8 children. The first 7 were born in ARK, prob. in Washington Co. area and were named William Melvin b 1 Nov 1846, Berry Seborn b 1849, James alford b 1852, Martha Catherine "Tine" b Dec 1854, Mary S b 1858, Sally M b Apr 1860, and Susan E b 1862. The family moved to Texas in the Sherman area about 1867/8 where their last child, William andrew was born 13 Jan 1869.
I have taken this history from Tommy Graham TomG@oui.com
. This is dated 30 Nov 1997.
I have tried to connect Hampton Graham to Elijah & Sarah Graham without proof as of this date.
If Tommy's e-mail is no longer good, let me know and I will type the remaining history for you.
