    Notes 
    • From Robert A. Anderson letter (see his entry): "My grandmother's name was Margaret Graham, born 10/28/1803, died 11/2/1847. Her mother's name was Isabel Allan and her Father's name was James Graham."

      !Letter from William W. Anderson, Attorney and Counselor at Law, Union National Bank Building, Houston, Texas dated August 31, 1932 to Emily Wanless Reeves 1396 So. Main Street, Salt Lake City, Utah:
      "My grandmother Wanless was Margaret Graham. Other children of my grandparents were Jeannie Lindsay, Ellen, Isabel, Margaret, Jessie, George, Robert, James, Andrew, John and Alexander, and I think Douglas, and Graham....
      We always understood from our Mother that her ancestors were of the Clan Graham, likely the "Border Graham" or Graeme. Beautiful clan tartans of this and other clans can be had in silks and fine wool from John Catto & Sons, Toronto."

      !Letter from Robert A. Anderson, 225 South Hamel Drive, Beverly Hills, California dated August 15, 1932 to Emily Wanless Reeves 1396 So. Main Street, Salt Lake City, Utah:
      "My Grandfather William Wanless was married to Margaret Graham and they had seventeen children. They are all dead now except Ellen Wanless who lives at Duntroon, Ontario, Canada. Her married name is Mrs. Ellen Leach. She was the youngest of the family and is now 84 years old. Her brothers and sisters names (my uncles and aunts) were James, John, William, Alexander, George, Andrew, Jean, (Elizabeth, my mother) Jessie, Isabella,. Margaret, and Ellen and Robert. Some 4 children died in infance. Thirteen grew to manhood and womanhood. I have seen Eleven of them and I remember when twelve of them were alive."

      Tombstone says 4 children died in infancy - by our count, this is Janet, the first Robert, the first Alexander, and who else?
