Grahams of Aghadowey
« on: Monday 23 May 16 19:22 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help me out with the birth certificate or the name of the mother of Robert Graham? He was born in Aghadowey around 1875, lived in Drumcroon with wife Annie Elder, whom I already have a lot of information on.

I've searched PRONI already today and can't come up with an answer, so any help would be appreciated.

Cheers!

Here he is on wikitree: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Graham-5993

Here he is on the census: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Londonderry/Drumcroon/Collins/652265/
Co. Derry - McFadden, McCloskey, McAfee, Millican, Elder, Graham, Grissam, Gault
Co. Tyrone - Robinson, Little, Potter, Crawford, Menary, Millar, Murphy, Hackett
Co. Armagh - Magowan

The marriage in 1903 lists Robert's father as John Graham, weaver. If, and this is a big if, he was alive in 1901, also Presbyterian and listed as a weaver then this is the only one in the Aghadowey area- but of course the census may call him a labourer or something else.
