SPEAKER GRAHAM born in Bloody Run, PA

SPEAKER GRAHAM the brother of my GGGrandfather. Family tradition has the birth of Speaker taking place in Bloody Run (Now Everett), Bedford Co., PA. The Graham family arrived at the Port of Philadelphia June 22, 1820. Family tradition has it that the Mother arrived in America pregnant and that while the family was enroute to Allegheny Co. Speaker Graham was born. While this blessed event was taking place the family was taken in by a caring tavern owner named Speaker and the new babe was named for this kindly person. A Graham descendant, Margaret Garson, in searching the 1820 census finds a family named Speaker residing in Bloody Run. If anyone researching the Speaker family has information about this Speaker family I would be pleased to have it.
Sincerely
RLM
