Most of us know about Anne H. Swan, the Giantess who was born in New Annan, Colchester County (Nova Scotia), and was once billed as the world's tallest woman. Most of us probably don't know that Anne's grandmother was a Murray. Anne's mother was Ann Graham who in turn was a daughter of George Graham and Margaret Murray. George Graham lived for a short time at Barney's River after arriving from Scotland. While there he married Margaret Murray who was born in that area around 1795 of Sutherlandshire emigrants.

Was her size determined by a random gene in the Murray bloodline?

So hopeful Murray parents, you have been warned !!!!
