 I'm searching for more information on Irvin Graham, sir name is Graham. He was born in Tenn. in 1814.  I found him and his family on the 1850 census rolls in Scott County, Mississippi as a farmer.  He married a girl from Louisiana by the name of Elizabeth Parker, The 1850 census shows they had five children Susan, William, Jonathan, James & Martha. William is my
great grandfather, born in 1844, was in civil war, died in Bowie Co. Tex. I have no date of death for Irvin Graham, & I do not know which county in Tenn. he was born. William was born in 1844 in Scott Co Miss, died in Tex in 1917.  I want to find out Irvin Graham's date of death and place of death any marriage records, and most important, who his parents were, all of their statistics on dates and where they lived. I know I'm asking for a lot, but maybe someone there knows something. I will appreciate any info anyone has on this family and Irvin's  parents. Mon, 7 Sep 1998
