Obituary for Jessie Cornelius GrahamI obtained this obituary for my grand uncle Jessie C Graham from a second cousin I recently “met” because of this journal.  Thanks, Michael!

Originally printed in the Arkansas Gazette, 19 August 1975:

I’ve also updated my previous entry on Jessie C Graham with information that Michael provided.
