Re: GRAHAM GENEALOGY Scotland / PA/NC
In your post to which I am responding, you, perhaps quoting Peden, stated the following:
“John's wife Jean Graham in her will (York Co. S.C.) states that she leaves everything to her daughter Margaret Templeton.”
But that was NOT John’s wife Jean.
The Mecklenburg will I abstracted below proves that William Graham in 1767 had a wife Jean and a son-in-law John Templeton.
William made no bequest to his daughter Margaret in the will, quite common for daughters who had already married and had received their “share” at the time of marriage.
So I feel quite confident in declaring that the widow Jean in York SC was the widow of William, not of John,however I am quite willing to be proven wrong if possible.
As for all the rest of the grand information in your post I have not researched far enough into John and Jean to make intelligent comment.

Will of William Graham of Mecklenburg Co(proved Jan 1771):

In case anyone was trying to Google the name of the researcher Leonardo “Andre”,his surname is correctly spelled Andrea.
