From the Family Bible of Allen David Graham, son of Thomas Graham and Mary Rose.  Thomas Graham and Mary Rose, daughter of Captain Lewis Rose, were married in Mercer County, Kentucky.  The marriage bond for this couple was
dated 1 Oct 1793 and was secured by Lewis Rose.  About 1800 Thomas and Mary (Rose) Graham moved to Shelby County Kentucky and lived near other Graham relatives on land brought from the Michael Troutman 400 acres patent on Tick Creek.
The nine children of this couple were born in Kentucky and are on record in the Indiana State Library, Indianapolis in the DAR Records complied by Vera Tranter, Vol. II pt. 3 page 26.

Allen David Graham was the third child of Thomas and Mary (Rose) Graham.  His family bible was located in the possession of the late Earl Graham, 305 N Oak Street, Falls Church Virginia 22046.  After his death in early February of 1969, the Bible remained in possession of his widow, Mrs. Aubry Lee Graham.

A letter to Minnie O Balls, dated 27 Oct 1967 has this information, . . .

"the old Bible carries the printer's date of 1854 whereas much of the date is for earlier
 years.  Obviously someone had the earlier records and inscribed them in the book
when it was procured."
