The 16th annual gathering of the Clan Graham Reunion Association is Friday and Saturday at the Texas Station Event Center on State Highway 36 in Gatesville. Meeting times are from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.
Descendants of John Graham and Mary Pennington Graham arrived in Coryell County in 1855. Their son, Elder Jesse Graham, was the first Primitive Baptist preacher in Coryell County. He married Martha Jane “Patsy” Fanning in 1827 in Jackson County, Ala.
Jesse and Martha had 12 children, most of whom married and remained in Coryell County and the surrounding area.
Other family names associated with the Clan Graham families are Blackwell, Davis, Wright, Wilson, Wilkinson, Robertson, Love, Manning, Fleming, Abbott, McLeod and Lamb.
Clan Graham will have available a database of all information collected on descendants. There will be designated times for those interested in genealogical research of their Graham connection.
