About Martha Ann Graham

From Find a Grave:

Martha Ann Graham was born 1834 on Mitchell Swamp Horry County South Carolina to Abraham Jerden Graham and Delila Grissett Floyd. Martha married her first cousin Hosea Aldeton Graham (Children of Graham Brothers, William Bellamy and Abraham Jerden.) In 1859 the Graham's migrated to Texas in covered wagons with five little children. Soon after that time the Civil War broke out.

Martha was saddened when her husband went off to fight in the bloody Civil War. The straw that broke the camels back and broke poor Martha's heart was what happened shortly after the war. Graham's oldest son Abe got into deep troubles. Hosea Graham advised his son to ride for the border and to lay low in Old Mexico. This was the only way to save his life.

Hosea and Martha Graham are parents of famous Old West Outlaw, Gunfighter and Sometimes Lawman, Abe Graham. Collins/Graham rode with William H. Bonney, aka Billy the Kid and was Pals, and many other famous and infamous saddle buddies on both side of the border U S and Old Mexico!

Collins Park, Gila National Forest New Mexico was named in tribute to Outlaw Shotgun Collins.
