"In the spring of 1830, John Graham came to Indiana and leased a small tract of land of William Heal. He was a millwright of fine attainments, and formerly resided in Guernsey County, Ohio. Some place near Winchester, Ind., he procured a pirogue, or ""dugout,"" and floated down the Mississinewa with his family and the articles of furniture he possessed. It is by no means discreditable to him to say that he was very poor when he came to the settlement, but he came with the determination to better his fortunes, and he succeeded in the effort. During the three years that he lived on the land of Mr. Heal, he saved his money, and finally entered a tract of land in Grant County. After he became a freeholder his fortune began to improve, and before he left the scene of his struggles with poverty, he was a man of wealth. At a later date he sold his property, and removed to Wisconsin, where he erected a mill. He died while visiting some of his former neighbors in Grant County, about the year 1861. He was buried in Olive Branch Cemetery."
