Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together

William T. Graham, born 1879 Manchester, New Hampshire; m. Lucy Ellen Cartland, born 1879 Brunswick, Maine

William T. Graham was born 30 December 1879 at Manchester, New Hampshire, the son of William Graham, born in Scotland, and Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham, born at Brunswick, Maine.  He married Lucy Ellen Cartland, who was born 11 December 1879 at Brunswick, Maine, the daughter of Charles Everett Cartland and his wife Frances Ellen (Tracy) Cartland.  I believe William and Lucy Ellen were second cousins.


See pages on this network for William T. Graham's mother Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham, his grandfather Isaiah Cartland and his great aunt Lydia M. (Cartland) Tuttle.


Below are a reprint of a post about William T. Graham and his wife Lucy Ellen Cartland at the blog Heirlooms Reunited family trees for William and Lucy Ellen.


Cabinet Photo of toddler William T. Graham (1879-1927) New Hampshire and Maine

Cabinet photograph of toddler William T. Graham taken by the Lamson studio of Portland, Maine. 

I found this photograph with three related ones; click the name to see the photograph of that person
  • Isaiah Cartlandgrandfather of William T. Graham
  • Lydia M. CartlandIsaiah Cartland's sister, who became the second wife of William Penn Tuttle of the Tuttle Farm of Dover, New Hampshire.  
  • Mary Rich Cartland, wife of William Graham and mother of William T. Graham.   

Two of the photographs mention Ruth, daughter of William T. Graham, so before they ended up in an antique shop, they must have been in the possession of a relative or friend of Ruth Graham.

From online research, hopefully correct:

William T. Graham was born 30 December 1879 and died 21 September 1927.  I believe he was born in Manchester, New Hampshire, the son of William Graham of Scotland and Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham.

On 24 April 1907, William T. Graham married Lucy Ellen Cartland, who was his second cousin.  They shared great grandparents Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland. 

Lucy Ellen Cartland was born 11 December 1879 in Brunswick, Maine, the daughter of Charles and Frances Ellen (Tracy) Cartland.  Her paternal grandparents were Cyrus and Phoebe Rogers (Jones) Cartland. Her maternal grandparents were John Orr Tracy and his wife Octavia (Philbrook) Tracy.

William T. and Lucy Ellen Graham had at least two children, one of them being the Ruth mentioned on the reverse of two of the photographs in the collection, this one and that of Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham.
