If you would like to share a story about your family or this Bible record, please type as little or as much as you like in this box. : This Bible was sent to me several years ago by a cousin who descends from Minnie Graham Jones, the youngest daughter of Jefferson and Amanda Graham. She felt I should have it, as I seem to be interested more in the family’s history than she did. I am hoping by putting this Bible into the public’s view, that someone will recognize Jefferson and Amanda Graham, as I am desperately seeking some other family related to Jefferson. This is one of my biggest brick walls. He related that he remembered coming from some southern island of the U.S., as a cabin boy off a boat or ship. He also said that he “came” from Oklahoma, and most thought he was part Native-American. However, his DNA haplogroup indicated his Y-DNA result was E1a. I have not found a way of testing his maternal side. His parents are listed on different census records as being born in NC and SC–quite a dilemma!
