Tombstone Tuesday: Halbert Graham

Halbert C Graham

Halbert C Graham

Born May 16, 1875

Died Aug 4, 1888

“A precious one from us is gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled”

Graham-Mason Cemetery
Hill County, Texas

Halbert Graham was related to the Grahams and Meltons, who were the family of my great-granduncle Francis Lee Turner’s wife Jennie Margaret Melton. I guess that makes him a distant cousin of mine by marriage. Some day I’ll really look into the Grahams. Tons of ‘em in Hill County, Texas in the late 19th century!
