Margaret Graham1

(circa August 1776 - after 1804)
FatherAndrew Graham1 (cir. Apr 1736 - cir. Apr 1801)
MotherJane Graham (say 1736 - aft. 1804); the Memorandum to Richard's will says he has mistakenly called the dtr of his sister Jane, Jane, instead of Margaret. I think there's yet another mistake in this, as all the previous references to Jane are to her as sister-in-law1,2,3
Relationship4th great-aunt of Lorna Henderson

All the other info

     I have yet to conclusively prove that the William and Margaret baptised in Kirklinton to an Andrew and Jane (of Astenby) are children of the same Andrew and Jane Graham who had Richard and Stephen in Bewcastle. This latter Andrew is the one connected to Fauld and therefore my direct line. The corrobative evidence however is that a Memorandum to her uncle Richard's will states that where he said Jane Graham the dtr of his sister (in-law assumed) Jane, he really meant Margaret Graham the dtr of Jane. From William's absence in the will, I assume that he had died prior to 1804.2,3

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
