What is on this web page is from 2013, but on each member's biography, we do have updated 2015 research paper.

Our great-grandfather, William Henry Graham was the son of William Albert Graham. Unfortunately when William’s mother, Mary Oliver-Graham or Mary Allewelt-Graham died, our great-grandfather was given to Lenard and Catherine Thrush. Catherine is the grandmother of Edward Agle or Annie Graham-Agle.

William Albert Graham was the son of John Graham  and Lydia Devor.

William Albert Graham (1833 - 1908)

Here's our 2015 paper on William Albert Graham (1833-1908).

William Albert Graham  [1] was born April 30th 1833 [2] to John Graham and Lydia Devor in the area of Blain, in present day Jackson Township, Perry County Pennsylvania. [3]

William 1st married Mary E. Oliver about 1857 in Cumberland County Pennsylvania. [6] Mary was born about 1841 to Fredrick and Catherine Oliver in East Pennsboro, Cumberland County Pennsylvania. By 1860 the Oliver family relocated to the Shippensburg Post Office area of Southampton Township in Cumberland County. Fredrick was a miller at the McClay’s Mill, located in the Newburg area of Hopewell Township. [8]

•     Regarding William’s marriages: The name Mary Oliver comes from William’s 1908 obituary. The name Mary E. Allewelt comes from the death certificates of two daughters, Annie and Cora.

•     Either there is an error in one of the records, or Mary Oliver died from birthing complications with her 1st born son, and William remarried prior to 1860 to Mary E. Allewelt in the Shippensburg area, or Mary E. Oliver is her maiden name, and Allewelt is her 1st married name.

•     Either Mary Oliver or Mary Allewelt was born February 8th 1838. This date came from the death of Mary on August 24th 1874, age 33 years, 6 months 16 days. [7]

In 1860 William and Mary, along with their son William Albert Graham, lived with Fredrick and Catherine Oliver in the Shippensburg post office area of Southampton Township, Franklin County Pennsylvania. William was a day laborer and Franklin Oliver was a miller. I’m not sure of the relationship between Franklin Oliver and Mary Oliver-Graham.

William and his family lived most of their lives in the town of Shippensburg, where he was a fence maker and copper (barrel maker), and a sexton at the Grace (German) Reformed Church in Shippensburg.

On June 13th 1863 William registered with, R.M. Henderson, for Army service while living in Shippensburg Township Cumberland County. At the time of his registration, William was married, and his occupation was identified as a copper. To date, we have found no record indicating William mustered in with any Civil War Army unit.

•     Some researchers think William enlisted in the Civil War, but he did not. [4]  His cousin, Uncle Robert Graham’s son, William A. Graham, enlisted in the Pennsylvania 77th Infantry Regiment Company D. William A. was in the same unit as his cousin David Howard Graham. In 1890 William A. lived in Huntsville, Penn Township Cumberland County Pennsylvania.  [5]

Annie Catherine Graham was born 1860 in Shippensburg Pennsylvania. She married Edward Tobias Agle October 18th 1877. [24]  Edward was born June 20th 1854 to Jacob Agle and Regina Waltrick in Shippensburg Pennsylvania. [25]  Annie and Edward Angle’s child was named Jena (Jina) who was born about 1879. They lived in the Shippensburg and Harrisburg areas.

Annie and Edward lived in Shippensburg. He was a plasterer by trade and was in business with his brother Abner Agle of Shippensburg.

In 1900 Catharine Thrush (b. 1819), a mother of 21 children, and none still living in 1900, was residing with the Annie and Edward. Catherine was Edward’s grandmother; she and her husband Lenard Thrush were the people our great-grandfather, William Henry Graham, lived with after William’s mother died in 1874.

In 1916 the Agle family moved from Shippensburg Cumberland County to Harrisburg Dauphin County Pennsylvania. [26] In 1920 Edward and Annie are living with their daughter Mary Agle-Snoke in Harrisburg Pennsylvania.

End Notes

[1.] William Graham’s Middle Name: The middle name Albert is assumed, based on the baptism of his son, fingering naming conventions; Baptism Records for the Middle Springs Presbyterian Church Cumberland County; William Albert Graham - May 14th 1859, Baptism, parent William Graham, Rev. Hays, Pg. 130; Middle Springs is in the Southampton Township, Post Office Shippensburg area of Cumberland County Pennsylvania. The 1860 census for this area also listed Wm. A. Graham, son of William and Mary.

[2.] William Graham’s Birth Date: William’s obiturary listed his birth year as 1833; however, a card at Perry County Historians has the following information: William Graham of Shippensburg, brother of David Graham, born April 30, 1834, died July 30, 1908. His father was John Graham b. Perry Co., Mother, Lidia Devor b. Cumberland Co. Information was supplied by John D. Graham of Shippensburg.

[3.]  William’s birth date was calculated using the information from his obituary and a birth date calculator; His place of birth was based on his families living areas in Perry County and his obituary, The Chronicle Shippensburg Pennsylvania, Thursday, August 6, 1908; Shippensburg Historical Society, 52 West King Street Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.

These marriages are errors on the researcher’s part. William’s obiturary indicates that he was twice married. His first wife was Miss Mary Oliver, daughter of William Oliver, near Maclay’s mill. After the death of his wife, sometime later he married Mrs. Mary Culbertson, a widow whose maiden name was Mary Hildebrand.
