Jun 7 1865 to Andrew Dean(s) and Hannah Mary Kerr. Maybe it was just a name
that people liked ?????.

Surname: Graham, Hawthorn, Dempster
I am unsure if there is a connection but,
My Great Great grandmother Mary "Dempster" Graham (nee Hawthorn) was born
in new Galloway 25.3.1828
I have never been able to find out where the "Dempster" came from. Her
Parents were William Hawthorn and Sarah Walker who were married at Kells
28.11.1823. Married at New Galloway on the 3.6.1849, Mary Dempster Hawthorn
Graham died 11.5.1907 at Ayr, Husband Thomas Grahm died in Dalmellington
Maybe you can make something of this.
