Maj. Thomas Graham  

MAJ. THOMAS GRAHAM,  son of Thomas Graham, hotel keeper, was a practical joker—a man of the world. He was a resident of Mercer for fifty-four years, and was, at the time of his death, which occurred on the 3d of January, 1871, sixty-three years of age. In the language of Mr. [William Swan] Garvin, a warm personal friend, he was “possessed of a vigorous mind, ready and pungent wit and general good sense.  He was a recognized leader of the Democracy of Mercer County, firm and reliable in prosperity and adversity.”
