4. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 10 Feb 1999, p2:
     OBITUARY: Archibald David Graham
     Archibald David Graham was born in Grenfell on 22 Dec 1910 and will come home to his final resting place today.
     Arch's parents [actually grandparents], William Graham and Sarah Cairnworth [actually Carnwath] were both born in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, he in 1827 and she in 1833.
     They married at Arty Garvan [actually Artigravan] in February 1855 and almost immediately sailed for Australia, arriving in Moreton Bay on 1 Aug 1855.
     At this stage, William could not read or write, although Sarah was able to do both.
     William and Sarah spent a year in Queensland before travelling down through the NSW goldfields. Their first child, William, was born while his father was a gold digger at Rocky River, only 30 kilometres from where his grandson Arch was to live 95 years later.
     In the 1860s the family moved to Grenfell and a few years later, William turned to farming in the Quondong area east of Grenfell and was the first person to grow wheat commercially in the Grenfell area.
     William Snr died in 1895 and Sarah lived until 1914.
     They had 13 children, although not all of them survived to adulthood.
     The second youngest child, David, was born in November 1874 and lived on his parents’ farm until the early 1900s when he moved to Hopefield, south east of Grenfell.
     David married Emily Durham in 1904 and they had seven children between 1905 and 1917 [actually 1919]. The pair built a more substantial house in 1925, which still stands today.
     Dave and Emily's two sons Arch (born 22/12/10) and Gordon (born 27/12/13), worked Hopefield with their father and then they [actually Dave] acquired Dewrang, 1182 acres on the slopes of Weddin Mountains, south of Grenfell.
     Arch moved to Dewrang in January 1935 and worked it on his own until his marriage in 1938.
     In 1936 Arch donned an army uniform, joining the Light Horse Brigade as a reservist and trained in various parts of Australia and Bouganville [actually Bougainville, and Arch did not go there until 1944] and eventually joined the 7th light horse regiment in 1941.
     In October 1938, Arch married Margaret Walker, daughter of a local Church of England Irish minister, and apart from interruptions of the war, worked on Dewrang until they decided to move to Armidale in 1950.
     Due to distances from schools and with a young family, it was time to move again, this time to Robertson.
     The wheat fields were a long way away, but Arch persevered with growing spuds, pigs, cabbages and so on.
     By 1966, caught by years of heavy rainfall, unrelenting bank managers and illness, Arch was forced to sell up and move to a 40 acre block on the outskirts of Robertson.
     A few years later they moved to Berrima Road, Moss Vale.
     Arch and Margaret eventually divorced and in 1983 , Arch married Peg Jeffery, a local lady, and they lived in Moss Vale until further illness lead them to Harbison Homes in Bowral, where Arch’s kidneys finally let him down.
     From 1945, Arch suffered a variety of ailments including colitis, a heart attack, strokes, nephritis and so on, but rarely ever complained.
     Arch loved farming and horses. He was proud of his kids and doted on his grandchildren. He loved cricket and was an avid bush poetry reciter. Many regarded Arch as simple, practical, down to earth, no airs or graces, honest, a hard worker and most of all a real battler.
     Arch is survived by his wife Peg at Harbison Homes, Bowral; sons and daughters-in-law Lindsay and Penny (Canberra), Michael (Figtree), Ralph and Karen (Epping), Geoffrey and Rose (Bendigo) and daughter and son-in-law Rosemarie and Craig (Clarence Town ). A son, Kerry, pre-deceased him.
     A graveside burial for Arch will be held at Grenfell Cemetery from 2pm today.

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.31,32,33

(Witness) HistoryOct 1856Rocky River, New England, NSW; >
Alluvial gold was first discovered at Rocky River by WF Buchanan and J Lucas in Sep 1851. In Oct 1852, the discovery of the first payable gold generated more interest and 538 mining licences had been issued by Mar 1853.
But it was a new discovery by John Jones in Feb 1856 that brought greater recognition to the field. The population grew from 1,200 in May to 3,000 in Jul and 4,500 in Sep. 1856 was the boom year (40,000 oz. of gold were produced) but the field declined rapidly from 1857.
Some alluvial and reef mining continued, however, so that in 1866, Rocky River Village was still an important centre with 6 hotels and about 500 Europeans and 350 Chinese.26

Occupationfrom 1870Quandong District, Grenfell, NSW; >
In 1870, William Graham paid William Nealon £1 per acre to plough 10 acres of corn at Quandong. The work was done with an old wooden single furrow plough drawn by 6 bullocks. Harrowing was done with a triangular wooden harrow. The crop yielded 40 bushels. In 1871, the same land was sown with White Lamas wheat, the first commercial crop in the district. The wheat was reaped with a reaping hook, stacked in sheds and later threshed out with a flail (or by drawing a roller over the sheaves). The crop was estimated to have yielded 25-30 bushels to the acre.25,54

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.61,62,63

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.42,43,44

Deceased was a son of the late Mr and Mrs William Graham, and was born at Nundle, on the Peel River, coming here at the age of six, and residing here ever since.
The parents settled at Quandong in the earliest of Grenfell's early days, and the parents and sons and daughters interested themselves in farming and grazing, and all those household industries connected with such that would mean the stocking of the family larder to such good purpose and which today seems a lost art.
...
He is survived by his widow, three daughters, Mrs Robertson (Wyong), Mrs Alfred Shaw (Lidcombe), Mrs J. B. Meikle (Annandale), and one son Robert (Brisbane).
Surviving brothers are Messrs John, David and George Graham, and Mrs W. Frazer.

The headstone inscription says 'My Husband & My Father'. In an adjacent plot, there is a headstone for R. Graham (no given names, death date or age) with the inscription 'My Dad. From Lou'. This plot also contains the grave of Lucy May ROBERTSON, believed to be Lucy May GRAHAM, daughter of Robert GRAHAM. Perhaps a rift in the family resulted in 2 separate headstones?51

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.29,30,31

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.49,50,51

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.26,27,28

The following letter, under the heading A PROSPEROUS FARM ON THE QUANDONG, appeared in the Grenfell Record on Saturday 7 Jan 1911.
Mr GEORGE GRAHAM, of Quandong, writes us thus:
     I have taken 234 bags of a fine sample of Federation wheat from 20 acres of land -- very nearly twelve bags to the acre; and from thirty acres 243 bags.
     Last year, from thirty-two acres I obtained 283 bags, some of this wheat gaining first prize at Young and second prize at Cowra Show that year.
     The land was fallowed and well worked on both occasions, and I think these returns should prove the value of fallowing land.
     I might add that it was thirty-eight years last August since some of the above land was first taken up. In those days, the single-furrow plough, drawn by bullocks, did the job, it taking ten weeks to do as many acres. This land has been farmed continuously ever since, and in my opinion there is no wearing it out, so far as wheat-growing is concerned.

Note:
The land referred to in this letter is presumably the land selected by his father in April 1872 (see 0038 William Graham Land tag Apr 1872).19,20

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.24,25,26

2. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 23 Jul 1931, page 3:
     We regret to record the death on Monday last of Mr William Graham, who passed away in the Grenfell Hospital after a long illness. Deceased, who was 73 [actually 74] years of age, was a member of one of the pioneer families of the district, being a son of the late Mr William Graham, who settled on the Quandong in the early days of Grenfell, and was one of the first settlers to grow wheat. The late Mr Graham some years ago sold his snug little property and went to reside with his daughter (Mrs Hampton). His wife (who was a Miss Stimpson [actually Stimson]) predeceased him many years ago.
     A family of three sons and four daughters survive. Messrs Ernest and George (Grenfell) and Les (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames Hampton, Jos. Hall, Herb. Hall and Barker.
     His brothers, Messrs Hammond, Robert, John, James, [also Joseph not shown], David and George, and sisters, Mesdames Alan Shaw and W. Fraser, survive.
     ...
3. Notice in Forbes Advocate, 24 Jul 1931, page 4:
     Passed away at the Grenfell District Hospital last Monday, Mr Wm Graham, an old resident of the district, aged 73. A family of three sons and four daughters survive.
4. Return Thanks in Grenfell Record, 30 Jul 1931, page 2:
     The family of the late William Graham desire to thank relatives and friends for floral tributes, cards and kind expressions of sympathy in the loss of their beloved father. Also specially thank the Matron and Nursing Staff of Grenfell District Hospital, Dr Ercole and Rev. Cooke.
5. Obituary in Grenfell Record, 13 Aug 1931, page 2:
     With the passing away recently of Mr William Graham a link is broken of the widely known and well respected Graham family of Quandong, a family of eight brothers and two sisters, whose ages range between the 40's to 70's [actually 50s to 70s]. As many may not know it might be interesting to state that Mr Graham, along with his father and Mr J Nealon (now all deceased), were the flrst men to do wheat farming in this district on the Quandong fifty years ago or so [this was ca 1870, when WG Jnr would have been only 12]. Mr Graham also followed the gold mining industry at various centres, and with his other brothers won a fair quantity of this precious metal. There were some rich mines on the Quandong when that area first opened.
     In his younger days he was a very good worker for the Church of England, and also a good churchman, walking perhaps three or four miles in all weathers to attend the services. This was before the present Church of England was built. He experienced the ups and downs of life of early Grenfell, suffering some big losses at times. Only a short time back he had eight beautiful big stacks of hay burnt in a yard at his 'Evadale' home that were uninsured.
     The late Mr W. B. Howarth, father of Messrs. Howarth Bros, of the 'Grenfell Record,' was a neighbour for years of the Graham family. At present Mr W. H. Fisher has a fine residence on the spot where once stood the old homestead on Quandong of the Graham family.
     Mr Graham was scarcely if ever troubled with a days sickness up to the time of his demise. — Contributed.22,23,24

Death Notice in Sydney Morning Herald, 9 Jan 1954, page 46:
     GRAHAM, Arthur Edward -- 4 Jan 1954 at Grenfell Hospital (Line Foreman Grenfell P.M.G. Dept.), dearly beloved father of Brian, Shirley (Mrs Bailey), Loris (Mrs Reynolds), Patty (Mrs 0'Brien), Nancy and Jannice [actually Janice], loved brother of Wilt [actually Wilfred] (Sydney), Dulcie (Mrs McCabe, Bathurst), Ray (Grenfell), Phyllis (Mrs Tveraabak, Sydney), aged 54 years.
Obituary in Grenfell Record 12 Jan 1954:
     The late Arthur Edward Graham was the fourth son of the late Mr and Mrs James Graham of Quondong.
     Born at Quondong, he was one of a family of eight, Thomas, Victor, Mary (Mrs Stimson [actually Stinson?]), Wilfred (Penshurst), Dulcie (Mrs McCabe, Bathurst), Ray (Grenfell) and Phyllis (Mrs Tverabaak [actually Tveraabak], Sydney). Tom, Victor and Mary (Mrs Stimson [actually Stinson?]) predeceased the late Mr Graham.
     He married Miss Amy Isobel [actually Isabel] Jane Barrett who predeceased him about eleven years ago. He is survived by six children Brian, Shirley, Loris, Patty, Nancy and Jan.
     His passing will bring back memories of the First World War when he enlisted with three [sic] other brothers for service overseas. He was only 16 years of age.
     Later he joined the staff of the P.M.G. Dept and served as a linesman at Young, Canberra, Bowral and Cootamundra. In 1936 he was appointed to the permanent staff as a Technician at Goulburn but transferred to the Lines Branch and returned to Grenfell as a linesman. He was later appointed to the position of Foreman. He held this position at the time of his death.15,16,17,18
