Graham of Switzerland Co.

Looking for information on these two families.

This is the obit of William Taylor Graham who died in 1891.

In September 5, 1864, he enlisted, to serve during the great Rebellion and following the vicissitudes and fourturnes of the Federal arms as a faithful soldier, and was honorably discharged May 19, 1865.
February 21, 1867 he was married to his devoted wife, who with four children, four brother and two sisters, mourn his loss. In December 1883, he came to Adams County, Nebraska where he has since resided. With a pulmonary predispostion it would seem he was one of the victims of La Grippe form which he never recovered. He was a sober, indurtious citizen, and a good friend and neighbor. While impulsive and ardent he was kind.

William was born 14 Sep 1846, in Gallatin Co Kentcuky, his famiy moved to Switzerland Co Indiana about 1855. His parents were John & Lucinda (Crouch) Graham.
One of his brother's that I know of was
James M born July 1839 Kentucky & wife Alice M born Sept 1836 Indiana they had four children Clara L born abt 1857, James M born Feb 1863, Minnie D born Dec 1865 and Ada abt 1868 died between 1870-1880 all but Clara were born in Indiana, she was born in Iowa per census records.
Minnie D Graham married John R Tuthill he was a lumber dealer, and moved on to Lauderdale Co., Alabama and had two children Carmine, Lloyd.

Then there is the Slawson family

William married India Slawson who parents were Simeon & Angeline Mansur. After Simeon's death in 1858, Angeline married William's father John Graham. Odd families. Angeline was born 1821 and died 1897 in Switzerland Co., Indaina. I have visited the cemetary were she is buried.
She had three children, Olive America Slawson born 1847, and died at 13 in 1861, she is buried near her mother. Then there was Lyman Beecher Slawson born April 1853.

Any help in sorting out these families would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Darlene
