6256 When my parents moved from Aberdeen, Idaho, to California in June 1920, my grandparents and Aunt Anna joined our family. I was three years old at that time.
Grandpa was six feet tall, walked erect, with a cane. When he was a young man it was stylish to use a cane.
As a young man, Grandpa had to spend some time in training in the army. A part of the rigorous training included having to dive into the river every morning, no matter what the weather, or that there was ice on the river. There was one man in the corp that was afraid of the water, and at first he was pushed into the water. One morning he jumped in just ahead of Grandpa and hit his head on a rock. Grandpa, going in just behind him, became entangled with his body, and he was in the water too long -- almost drowning before he was pulled out. This incident caused him to become asthmatic. So that he could finish his tour in the Army, he was assigned to a position as a Footman to the Kaiser's Palace.
In the mornings, the elderly and ill Kaiser Wilhelm I was driven about the palace grounds in a two wheel cart. Grandpa's morning chore was to walk beside the cart -- open the mail and hand it to the Kaiser. The remainder of the day he fulfilled his duties as a porter.
One day, the children of the Kaiser's family wanted to see the inside of the big organ, and asked Grandpa to open the back of it. There was a fairly large space, so the children went in to explore it and came out with cobwebs on their clothes. They were curious just as other children would be.
Grandpa suffered much with asthma. He always slept propped up on four pillows.
He smoked a pipe, using "Prince Albert" in it. The smell was quite vile, and it permeated his clothes.
Grandpa was a carpenter. He was always as helpful as he could be. When I was four years old, he built us some living room furniture: a couch, a chair, a rocking chair, a round decorative table, a bench for the front porch and a rocking horse for Sidney.
Later, when we moved to an estate that belonged to a wealthy woman in San Francisco, he built cupboards, helped to put in a bathroom, motorized an old wooden tub washing machine for Mother, and put together a tricycle and a peddle car from parts he found on a discard pile, for Sidney and myself.
His asthma always seemed worse when he worked about the barn, the chicken house or on foggy mornings. Then his breathing became quite labored.
During his last years, he spent time building a miniature of his childhood home in Germany. I was always in awe as I watched him carve the tiny wooden ducks for the pond, the tiny chickens, the rooster on the fence, the stork on the roof, the hay wagons drawn by horses, and many other little touches. Wish you could have seen it!!! When the house we lived in near Albany burned in February 1936, among our treasured losses was the miniature farm.
Grandpa had a hernia surgery and with the added difficulty of asthma, he contracted pneumonia and died 21 Feb 1931. I was 13 years old.
We surely were blest with the presence of the Grandparents in our home.

6267 William Graham left Lockerbie, Scotland about the year 1793, coming to St. Andrew's Point, Prince Edward Island the following fall. He brought his wife and two sons with him, William aged about eighteen years and James about ten years old. (His wife, Janet Rogerson, is believed to have died on the voyage to Canada, although she is listed as the mother of William and James on their Baptismal Register entries at St. Paul's Church in Charlottetown, P.E.I..)
The elder William Graham took 100 acres of land in Gaspereaux where he built a log house and barn on the farm now occupied by Charles Graham, and called the place "New Lockerbie". The house was built near the spring on the west side of what is now known as the Little Pond. Here, William and his two sons started to wrest a living out of the virgin soil. Nothing is known about William's wife, only tradition says she died on the way out from the old land.
About the year 1810, the two sons, William and James, with the assistance of their father, built a small schooner at the shore near the McKenzie line, below the pond and known as the "island house". They finished her in the year 1812, and the two sons sailed her to Newfoundland with a cargo of produce, and sold her there. This trip proved fatal, for the two sons contracted smallpox and died shortly after returning home the same year. This left the father with William's widow and a small family. He decided to send to Scotland for his nephew. About the year 1814, William's nephew, Benjamin arrived, bringing with him his sister Mary. Benjamin, aged 15 years, was able to assist William to provide for the younger William's widow and family.
Several years later the widow married Archie White of Sturgeon, but she did not forget her family in New Lockerbie four miles away and made regular trips to see them and to wash, bake and mend for them until they were able to fend for themselves.
The old gentleman lived a goodly number of years after the death of his sons, but for several years prior to his death in 1833, he was totally blind. Tradition does not tell us exactly how old William was when he passed away, but according to land records, he would be near four score years. William Graham did not leave any fortune, but he left his family provided with farms on which some of his descendants of the sixth generation are making a goodly living from the soil he bought and cleared with the sweat of his brow. At present, the dwellings are all near the public highway, but the first dwellings were near shore. The old gentleman's house was on the farm now occupied by Charles Graham and was near the spring on the west side of what is now known as the Little Pond. William's grandson, James, built his house farther west on the farm now occupied by Horatio Graham, and also near a spring of water. Grandson George built his house south from the old man's house, west of the Little Pond, and on the farm now occupied by Wendell Graham. Benjamin Graham built his house farther south on the farm now occupied by George G. (Albert E.) Graham. The new buildings are near about south where the old dwelling stood. Benjamin and his nephew built his house near the shore and farther south on the farm now occupied by William B. Graham. The old cellar can easily be located yet on the hill of what is known as the "Cape Field".

The above was written by Mrs. Irene (Graham) MacPherson, New Glascow, Nova Scotia.

6268 William Lillie and Hannah Eliot, the parents of Lamira, came from New York and first went to Iowa (probably Mechanicsville), then in 1864 they went by wagon train to Idaho. William Lillie was Wagon Master for an 80 wagon train--a train large enough to have no trouble with the Indians. They would see them scouting in the distance but had no interference from them. A few approached them occasionally, trying to buy some food (such as a dollar for a biscuit), but her father would not sell, for he knew the money was ill-gotten from other wagon trains. During the trip they came across other wagons that had been burned. The family, after some three years in Idaho, moved down to the Sacramento Valley in California.
William Lillie settled in Venado (no longer on the map). My Dad said he had a blacksmith shop, stage stop and stables in Sites (about 12 miles west of Maxwell), but I can find no evidence for his being at Sites. Venado is only about 20 miles from Sites. An extract from the family bible showed him to be a blacksmith and Justice of the Peace at Venado. Perhaps he first went to Sites and then to Venado. We do know that he homesteaded 160 acres a mile or two west of Venado in 1880, and it is still known as the Lillie place.
