Angus (Forfarshire) / Graham family in Kirriemuir late 1700s - early 1800s
« on: Friday 20 September 13 02:30 BST (UK)  »
Trying to locate any information on a William Graham b. 1804 and his mother and father, based on a letter from my great-grandfather, he said that his grandfather Willie Graham came from 'Kareymore' -- I'm assuming this meant Kirriemuir, unless there is a town called Karrimor.  Any information would help.  Thanks.

Seeking information on family line of my great-grandmother, Margaret Hogan, born in Mhow, West Bengal, India 1860.  She had a sister named Kate (I have photo's of her).  The only sketchy information I have is that her father's name was John Hogan and her mother's name was Ellen.  They were from Ireland. They were missionaries in India. Later on he was in the Sepoy Mutiny.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
