When I was in year 5 at primary school our teacher gave us a project for the Christmas break to do a family tree, I asked my grandma about grandads parents and she said "we dont talk about that" so I had to search for what she would not talk about, it took about 40 years to find, and it went from a tree of 36 people to well a lot!
Thomas Graham Balfour i believe is his name. Ive got pictures of him. His daughter is my direct link to them. He is buried in Montrose Wisconsin near the farm they lived on. He married Matilda Jane Oliver
