My ancestor is Mary Cartledge (or Cartridge) who we believe came from Durham County. I don't know a lot about her or her parents.We believe she was born in or around Durham in about 1832.She married Ralph Harrison, a coal miner,(date/Place unk.,perhaps Durham) and emigrated to the USA to Pennsylvania in about 1861.They had at least nine children, but onlyDaughter Annie was born in England. She was born in about 1855/56 (place unk.) The Harrison family continued to work in the mines in the USA and travelled west from Tioga County PA, to La Salle Co. IL, Sims ND, Montana and ultimately to Roslyn, Kittitas Co. Washington.Ralph Harrison died there in 1893.Mary Cartledge Harrison died there in July 1903. Daughter Annie Harrison married Harry E. Graham in Pennsylvania, c. 1872 and died in Washington in 1932.He also was an English coal miner before coming to the USA.Harry E. Graham was born in about 1844 (place unknown) and died in Washington in 1929. His father may have been named Robert Graham.
Any help connecting my family with the Cartleges in England would be greatly appreciated.
