About Christopher Graham, of Bullpasture

brief biography

Christopher Graham was born probably 1665 - 1685 in Scotland or Ireland and migrated to the colonies before 1700. It is believed that he settled first in Paxtang township, Lancaster county, PA. He died 1745 - 55 in Virginia.

From the histories of Highland Co. it appears that around 1740 or before John and Robert Graham with others of their family migrated from Pennsylvania to Virginia, settling in Bullpasture section where they became large land owners; and that they were followed by their father, Christopher Graham, who died in Bullpasture 1744-45

Robert Graham became Road Overseer; Surveyor; the first Constable of Calfpasture Valley in 1745; was in the French and Indian War under CaptPreston 1757-58.

The name of his wife has not been established beyond question, but some records show that her name was Margaret Risk.

The children of Christopher Graham were:

  1. John b. 1700 m. Elizabeth 1722 d. 1771

  3. William b? m. Jane May 1748 d.?
  4. Archibald b. ? m. Margaret Shed 1751 d.?
