  1. Hello Byron,

    Thanks for the below birth certificate for my great uncle, Daniel. My grandpa was Jesse Cornelius Graham, father of my dad Alvin Jesse Graham who died May 30, 2018. I remember dad mentioning “Uncle Dan” many times.

    Thanks also for all of your hard work with our ancestry!

    Michael Graham
