Afterwards Mr. Graham moved to Snow Shoe, where he opened up coal-mines and lived until 1864, when he moved to Iowa and settled in Prairie City. He was born in England, Nov. 24, 1804, and came to the United States in 1832, settling in this State, and engaging in the business of mining and building public works.

He was a man of great practical inventive talent, and introduced in Centre County many improvements in the care of stock, and many good customs, derived from close observation of their long trial in England.
