Note: obituary from the papers of Geneva Smith; extracted from the Burr Oak Acorn...
Mr Andrew M Graham has filled a large place in the good will and esteem of especially the older citizens of Burr Oak. It goes without saying that his long life among us has impressed every one as being characterized by prudence, good sense, judicious business sagacity and intregrity, in fact all those cumulative personal qualities that go to make a good and worthy citizen, neightbor and friend. His legal and judicial attainments and practice qualified him to give generously, safe and wise counsel to anyone who expressed a desire for it long after he discontinued the active practice of law. he was a man of few but significant words and he had the esteem of those who came into personal contact with him, and respected his quiet ways as they met him day after day on our streets.
Andrew M Graham was born in Palmira, Michigan, 1 October 1841, coming to Burr Oak when sixteen years of age, residing here until death, Sunday evening, 3 June 1923. He leaves to mourn their loss a devoted wife, Augusta, daughter, Jane and step-son, Charles Tobey, one sister, Mrs Adelia Porter and nephew, Harry Porter, of Charlevoix, on account of sickness the sister being unable to be present, also more distant relatives and many dear friends.
Mr Graham was a Mason, being a devout member of the local organization, also of the Eastern Star, in the latter organization, he and his wife would have become charter members next January.
