This would be my 2nd great-grandparents Albert Gallitan Graham (1844-1926) and his wife Mary “Mittie” Richardson (Grantham) Graham (1839-1917). Albert was a Confederate veteran and Mittie was a midwife. Mittie’s daughter Corrine died in childbirth with my grandfather in 1910. I always wondered if Mittie was in attendance during that birth. This picture would have been taken around 1885.
Here is the same couple only later! This one would have been taken about 1905.
“Everyone” says that Mittie was part Indian. What do you think? My DNA shows 5% American Indian. Do you think part of that 5% came from Mittie? So many Indian rumors in the family and so little proof.
