NOTES FROM PAT LINDEMUTH GRAHAM: 10/28/00
Her daughter, Jamie, lives in Trenton OH... has all the records...also e-mail and internet access.
The Grahams have several census reports including 1850 and others.
Pat does not know date of marriage nor place. Urbana orIndy???
Mary would have turned 18 in 1864.
She knows nothing of the 1863 Urbana marriage record between a MaryGreenan and John Tulley.
Our "Mary" would have been only 19 at that time.
Patrick and Mary had 7 or 8 children (at least) five? boys & three? girls.
Patrick went by name of "John Graham" died Jan 2, 1907 (age 65 & 67... records conflict)

James P. F. Graham ("Frank") Jan.31, 1890
Graham family of Greenville is decended from Frank.
Frank Jr. would be second cousin to my dad but never knew about anyof his Indianapolis cousins.
Frank Jr. remembers very little about hisdad or grandmother Greenen but states his dad (Frank Sr.) died when hewas 11.
Frank Sr. died at age ~ 44 in ~ 1935.
Mary must have had Frank "late in life"as his birthday calculates out to be around 1890... & Mary would havebeen 44 then.
Was Frank the youngest of her children???
It seems that Patrick Graham and MaryGreenen Graham raised their family on a large farm in Fayetteville nearCincinnati. (on U.S. 50)
Several of Frank Sr.'s brothers(Frank Jr.'s uncles) stayed in Fayettville and were remembered as being"very rural"
Frank Jr. recallshis uncles as being like the "Beverly Hillbillies." ...old countyIrishmen.
It is not known how Patrick & Marywound up in Fayetteville after getting married in Urbana.
Frank Sr. (Mary's son) ran a grocerystore in Fayetteville till he died... years would have been about 1915- 1935 or thereabouts.
After Frank Sr.'s death their mother(nee Jeffries) took all the children and moved to her father's farm nearGreenville Ohio... the Jeffries farm.
Jeffries family was non Catholic. Frank has story to tell about how and why she gave up on promise to raisechildren Catholic.
In about 1961 I was inCincinnati ~~ working on the road for my father's company. I wasgiven the name and address of a family in Cincinnati whom I should visit. I'm fairly sure I was told that these were relatives... maybe Greenen relatives. It would be an important thing for me to do, my dad said, because the familyhad a daughter about my age. I was about 20 years old and just leftthe Catholic Seminary. I knew nothing about girls and was drivinga pick up truck and didn't know my way around Cincinnati... and for allkinds of reasons I didn't make the visit. Could these havebeen Greenens or Grahams living in Cincy at that time? DCD
The Greenen/Ryan/Poirier bible attests that Patrick Graham died June2, 1907.
Same bible shows Mary Greenen Graham's death on May 11, 1921.

Mary died in Indy. Pat is not sure where Patrick Graham died;but says that they believe they may have lived separately for a time. One census shows Mary living in Indy with her brother Michael. Noone seems sure why that was. Probably after the children were allraised... which would have been near the turn of the century.
We need to be careful here; as there were more than one "Mary Greenens"and maybe 3 or 4 who went by that name ~~ counting children.
SOME (at least one) Mary Greenen is unaccounted for... but is DEFINITELYNOT Mary Greenen Graham.
There are hints that Patrick may have had the "Irish affliction" tothe point of an intolerable fault... but no details.
At the time of Mary's death, it is obvious that (at least some of)their children felt they should be buried side by side.
They are buried together in Springfield Ohio. Graham family haspictures of headstones.

Greenen/Ryan/Poirier bible lists a MARY GREENEN O'BRIEN who diedJan 6, 1914 at age 58!
This would make her birth year about 1856
NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHO THIS WAS!
If she was another daughter to Peter Greenen &Mary CONWAY, then her mother bore her at age 46... AND
She would have been the SECOND child to go by thename of Mary in this family.... AND
She would be the "missing" person from the "fivegrown children" mentioned in Peter's obituary. ...AND
Why is there no other document anywhere which atteststo her existence?
This bible has thus farand otherwise been almost 100% trustworthy!
WHO WAS THIS WOMAN?
