Researching GRAHAM, PASSMORE, CAME and CRESSY
Howdy to those who will read this!
As a boy (we're talking toward the middle of the last century) my paternal grandmother got me interested in genealogy and the family history. When she passed they gave her genealogy papers to me. But my life took unexpected and twisted turns and my dad, who had the papers in his possession 'til I could "settle down" sent them th an LDS cousin.
A year ago I go a job at the Tennessee State Library & Archives -- one of those "dusty repositories" that family researchers frequent. And I got back into it BIG-TIME! I'm most interested in the history of the GRAHAM line (imagine that!), and have rather quickly run into a brick wall; if anybody knows anything about the parents, grandparents or siblings of Rev. Windsor Graham (d 1865 Georgia USA), please share.
What brought me to this site was query about the CRESSY (various spellings) family. I'm 3-great-grandson of Major Mark R. CAME and wife Harriett CRESSY. Any info on her ancestral lines will be appreciated. His lines too -- I don't even have his father!
