Graham or Rufty portrait Rowan County NC, From home of Myrtle Inez Rufty Barringer, Frame & image have 1800’s appearance


This framed portrait had been in the home of Myrtle Inez Rufty Barringer, my maternal grandmother, and was given to me by my mom’s younger sister Nell several years ago.

I believe I remember it being there.

My grandmother’s parents were George Adam Rufty and Mary Ann Graham Rufty.

My aunt believed the portrait was of a Rufty.

My mom is 94 and she thought it looked more like a Graham.

All of these people lived in Rowan County west of Salisbury near Highway 70.

In the spirit of “History Detectives”, your help in identifying the person in the portrait would be appreciated.
