Re: Parents of Lloyd Edward Graham 1889-1970

Brandon,

I assume you know that Lloyd's grandfather was James C. Graham. Have you been able to eliminate any of James C. Graham's sons as being the potential father of Lloyd? For example, I found a 1939 article of the Elmer Graham reunion which listed nephew Lloyd Graham of Colver as attending. That eliminates Elmer as the father. It can't be Lemuel as his obituary in 1942 only lists daughters as surviving children. From Charles' obituary in 1968 it appears that he never married nor had children. Only parents and brothers and sisters were mentioned. In Jerome's obituary from 1967, it lists a wife but no children as either preceding him in death or surviving. It can't be half-brother Donald as he was born after Lloyd.

That leaves the following as a possible father of Lloyd:
George W. Graham
James A. Graham

George died 11-6-1905 of "Pendsitis". As you know, James pretty much disappeared after the 1880 census. James must have died prior to 1922 as James C. Graham's obituary does not list James as surviving him. My bet is on James A. as being the father of Lloyd.

Stu
