Biographical Sketch of John A. Graham

John A. Graham is a Missourian, and was born in Grundy county on the 6th of August, 1849, and reared and educated in the county of his birth. After leaving school he commenced milling and teaming in Livingston county, and continued in the same business until October, 1870, when he came to Daviess county, where he has since resided. In this county he has been engaged in farming, and now owns a neat little farm of eighty acres in Lincoln township, which he has put in a high state of cultivation, and improved into a comfortable and profitable home.

Mr. Graham was married, in Grundy county, August 27, 1871, to Miss Carolina B. Witten. They are the parents of four children, of whom James K. and Henry W. are living; and Iola H. and Bettie J. are deceased.
