Lewis Publishing Company of Chicago, 1887, Pp. 287-88


Civil War Flags.jpg I. G. GRAHAM, section 30, Lincoln Township, was born in Brown County, Ohio, July 22, 1844, his parents, David and Mary GRAHAM, being natives of the same State. He was reared to the occupation of a farmer, which he has made the principal avocation of his life, following it with the exception of one year, while engaged in a butcher's shop, and while in the service of his country.

At the age of eighteen years he enlisted in Company K, Eighty-third Illinois Infantry, and participated in the battle of Fort Donelson, and other engagements of less note. After serving for three years he was honorably discharged at Chicago, Illinois, in July, 1865, when he returned to his home and engaged in agricultural pursuits.

He was united in marriage May 10, 1868, to Miss Miriam DEAN, a native of the State of Pennsylvania. To this union was born one son, Earl, who died October 30, 1878, the date of his birth being September 18,1878.

Mr. GRAHAM takes an active interest in the affairs of his township, and is at present holding the office of assessor to the entire satisfaction of his constituents. His farm which contains eighty acres is under thorough cultivation, and the surroundings of his place show the owner to be a thorough, practical farmer. Mr. GRAHAM is a member of the Odd Fellows lodge at Cromwell, Iowa. He is also a comrade of Eda Ottier Post, No. 290, G.A.R., of Clearfield.
