"Graham Cemetery is named after Dr. George S. Graham. Dr. Graham gave land in Section 32 of Clear Creek Township for a cemetery. Although a plaque at the grave says that the deed was given in 1882, burials date from 1863, when Dr. and Mrs. Graham lost a one year old daughter. Several other burials were made thee during the 1860's; one from the Hay family and several from the Lint family.
"Graham Cemetery is an active cemetery, still well caref for. The Graham cemetery Association, a group that had its roots in the Zion Church, still cares for the cemetery."
