James Graham, the father of Joseph Graham, was of Scotch-Irish descent. When the Province of Ulster had been greatly depopulated by the armies of Elizabeth and James I. on account of the adherence of the inhabitants to the Roman Catholic religion and their opposition to the establishment in their country of the Church of England, King James endeavored to repopulate it with emigrants from England and Scotland, and also with Irish Protestants. -- pg. .
