The purpose of this web site is to share the histories of our family tree. It is a journey in uncovering our family branches and their roots.  It is also an ongoing exploration into the landscape traveled by our families during the times that they lived.  We believe these histories connect us to our future, and that what we learn and eventually come to know, is our heritage.

In order to keep us on track, we took the time to create research papers, which helped us document our journey in discovering our family branches and their roots. They also allow us to share our ongoing exploration into the landscape traveled by our families during the times that they lived. We believe these histories connect us to our future, and that what we learn and eventually come to know, is our heritage.

Our Graham Family Branch

I am Robert Calvin (Boog) Graham. I grew up in Franklintown York County and Camp Hill Cumberland County Pennsylvania. My wife is Janelle Aileen Taylor who grew up in Mount Joy and Elizabethtown Lancaster County Pennsylvania. We met while attending Shippensburg State College located in Cumberland County Pennsylvania.  We married in 1976 and lived in Middletown Dauphin County; we were there during the Three Mile Island tragedy.  A short time later we moved to Camp Hill in Cumberland County, where our two boys were born. 

About 1985 we moved to where we live today in the York Springs area on the Franklin Township side of York County Pennsylvania; mid-way between Camp Hill and Gettysburg.  Our two boys are now in their mid-twenties; Justin Taylor Graham and Ian Robert Graham.  Justin is happily married to Tyanne Kline of Liverpool, Perry County Pennsylvania.  Our family also includes two miniature Daschunds; Harley-Dawg, and Charley Dawg.

With our hopes and dreams, we envision our family growing; taking their place among our family branch. As they do, they will join a proud heritage of pioneering families. Filled with some interesting characters, stories, and facts. Our wish is this body of work will help others visualize how these families intersected during their time, and later integrated their family branch with our family tree.

Once Upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly.  I was conscious only of following my fancies as a butterfly, and was unconscious of my individuality as a man. Suddenly, I awoke, and there I lay, myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.   
-- Chuang – Tzu, 3rd Century BC
