Graham Drinkwater - Montreal Hockey Great (1875-1946)

I am compiling a book about the early hockey pioneers. I was wondering if any family members of Graham Drinkwater would like information I have on the first Stanley Cup season and would like to help me find personal information on these early hockey greats. The only person I have personal information on is Graham Drinkwater as he is the only player from that first season 1892-1893 that was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. He was born February 22nd 1875 in Montreal and died September 25th, 1946 in Montreal. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame 4 years after he died. He won 4 Stanley Cups hence his name is on the legendary Stanley Cup in 4 places. After hockey he attended McGill University and earned a science degree. He became Vice President of Fairbanks Morse Company. He was senior partner in the brokerage firm of Oswald and Drinkwater which he established in 1921 until his death. Did he have any children???
