I have been working on the Graham line in Lafayette Co. for over 20 years and still find a lot of mysteries.In the biographical sketch area in THE HISTORY OF LAFAYETTE COUNTY WISCONSIN 1881, Publ. by Western Historical Company on page 786 under Town of Blanchardville the biography of Garett Graham is found.His wife's name of McMurdock is spelled incorrectly.
He died 21 Nov 1874 and his wife, Rose or Rosana lived to c. 1912 and died in Lafayette Co.
The 1880 Census shows a son with Rose Graham age 6.Then the 1900 Census shows Richard as S Son age 26, married for 4 years (no wife mentioned)and a G Son (to Rose) age 3.
Rose's Estate papers name her heirs as James Coffey, John Coffey, Andrew Coffey, Mike Coffey, Thomas coffey, all nephews and Maggie Davis, niece.
Does anyone know how the Coffey niece and nephews were directly related to Rose Graham?Was it by a sister's marriage or one of the Grahams?Any help much appreciated! Sharon firstname.lastname@example.org
