Per grand-dtr Peggy: "My grandmother's name was Roxie Ellen and never Roxanne. She was a gifted pianist, playing by ear, and was her Laurel church's pianist from age 12-wish I knew which one. She had flaming red hair and was a beauty in her day. Her background was very poor, but her shoemaker father sent her to a private school where she excelled in spelling. Since she lived with us when I was growing up (her house down the dirt path from our house had no heat or inside toilet facilities) I never had to go to a dictionary for spelling help."
"Roxie" married William James Graham, son of James Robert Graham and Margaret J. Boyce, on Oct 25, 1893 in Graham Family farm. (William James Graham was born on Oct 14, 1870 in Laurel, Sussex Co, DE and died on Oct 25, 1940 in Suitland, Prince George's Co., MD.)
