"These things have I spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In this world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world"--John 15:33
Jean Cochrane was born c. 1662 to a Covenanting family. In 1684, she was courted by a young colonel of the Royal (Scottish) Regiment of Horse named John Graham of Claverhouse. On June 10 of the same year, she married him.
In 1688, the "Glorious Revolution" broke out and Graham, now Viscount Dundee drew sword in defense of King James II. When he departed from his house, his wife encouraged him in his mission.
Her dauntless spirit against all odds, and her tireless endeavors to aid her husband should inspire those who hear of the deeds of Jean Graham.
