Descendants of Milo Graham

Submitted by Lee Waters

A “First Family” of Macoupin County IL

MILO GRAHAM, (son of JANET GRAHAM, b in Scotland and Theda Case, b 1783 in Ireland, d 1876) was born June 17, 1817 in Canton Connecticut, and died July 03, 1884. He married (1) HANNAH DUGGER June 14, 1841 in Macoupin County, IL., daughter of Jarrot Dugger (of French descent). Hannah was b March 01, 1821, d January 04, 1853. He married (2) ELIZA ANN BORING VALENTINE April 11, 1854 in Macoupin County, IL. Eliza was b 1826 in IL, d September 10, 1876.

Notes: "Earths Horizon" written by Mary Hunter, author and playwright, b 1868, gives some background on the Graham's and Dugger's. It also tells some about a great fire when Milo lost his store in Carlinville.

The information that I have on Milo Graham is that he was a druggist.

Milo Graham played the flute and violin. He was an artist of some ability and a great lover of nature. He loved to experiment with unusual varieties of flowers and plants.

In his young manhood, Milo had a swelling of the knee that left him lame for the remainder of his life.

Milo was a man of lovable disposition and mild temper.
