Defendants to Graham Lawsuit

Several Graham descendants and spouses are in this photo. The woman in a dark dress with no hat and white hair is Mary Wilson Trimble (granddaughter of Mary "Polly" Graham). The woman in the white dress with big white hat is Bertha Graham Wilson (granddaughter of William Kane Graham).

There are over 200 defendants for the lawsuit fighting Adeline Graham Wilson's will---I'm going to try to identify as many of them as possible by which of Adeline's siblings they descend from. Since many of them weren't named in the will, I don't really understand why they were defendants, but I'm listing these purely for genealogical reasons. For those named in the will, click here. For information on the lawsuit and the plaintiffs, click here. PLEASE, contact me if you have any corrections.



Some are probably not related to Adeline, but they could be related to her husband John M. Wilson:
Thomas J. Miller
Ann Elize Wilson Click here for more information on her.
Margaret Carrow

Most were the grandchildren of her brothers and sisters who are in bold below. If I have a photo of the person, there's a link (underlined) I'm sure there are more of these people on this photo, but we haven't identified them, yet:
