Graham Genealogy - Western North Carolina

Welcome to my Graham web pages. This name was spelled Grimes on some of the earlier records.

My most recent Graham ancestor is Phoebe Edith Graham (c1814-1899) who married William Evans in the 1830's in Buncombe Co., NC. Phoebe's parents are Jeffrey Graham (1784-1855) and Frances Eastridge.

Jeffrey Graham's parents are unknown. He was born in Wilkes Co., NC and is a proven sibling to Lewis Graham (1789-1855).
