  • Note: Born near Weed sport, NY three weeks after his parents with 8 children landed on Long Island, after being shipwrecked on the ocean voyage from Monaghan County, Ireland, near the Scottish border. His father, John Graham died five or six years after coming to America. William Andrews Graham left home at Linesville, Crawford Co, PA when his mother remarried when he was seven years old. His mother married a Catholic named Murphy. Possibly Patrick Murphy that came on the same boat with the Grahams. M:MV 1-229 Reg. of Deeds, Grant Co, WI M: Fennimore Center Bur: 8/21/1901 Mt. Ida Cem,Mt. Ida Twp, Grant Co, WI NATHANIEL WELLS Fennimore Times September 12, 1900 Page 1 Column 3 With the death of “Grandpa” Nathaniel Wells, as he was known familiarly to all, one of the old pioneers of Grant County, honored and respected in his long, useful life, has gone to his final reward. Nathaniel Wells was born Feb 20, 1805 in Washington Co., NY. While a young man he moved to Wyoming Co. in the same state, and there was married in 1827 to Miss Mehetabel McCartney. In 1833 he took up his residence in Crawford Co, Penn., where he lived until 1854 when he moved to Grant Co, Wis., and the exception of a short time in Nebraska, has resided here ever since. He lived to see old Grant County develop from its primeval condition into one of the most favored and productive sections of the state, and he played no small part himself in that transition. Mr. Wells united with the Wesleyan church in 1829 and has always lived a Christian life. In his last sickness he said he was ready to go and only waited for the Lord to call him home. He leaves one son, Shaler, who is now in California, and one daughter, Mrs. Nancy M. Graham of Mt. Ida, with whom he had made his home nearly all the time for the past thirty years, besides many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great, great grandchildren, and hosts of friends, to mourn his departure. He died Sept. 7, 1900, at the advanced age of over 95 years, going peacefully to his last rest as a child would go to sleep in its mother’s arms. Of Grandpa Wells it may truly be said that (a good man has gone,)and that his soul was welcomed to Heaven with joyful acclaim (Thou has been faithful in many things, enter now into the joy of the Lord, and meet those who have gone before and been waiting for you in His kingdom.) The funeral was held from the home on Sunday morning at ten O’clock and largely attended. Rev. G. A. Bird of Mt. Hope paid an eloquent tribute to the departed one. Interment took place at the Mt. Ida cemetery.4

Graham Fennimore Times June 27, 1928 Page 1 Column 6 Mrs. William A. Graham, the city’s oldest resident, 95 years of age, died at the home of her son William A., Friday forenoon at 10 o’clock. She was taken ill with a chill on Thursday previous and passed peacefully away the following week. She was born at Buffalo, N. Y. Dec. 17, 1832, only daughter of Nathaniel and Mehetabel Wells, and was married in the year 1849 to Amos J. Frey. To them was born one son, Amos J. Frey, late of Mt. Hope. Her first husband A. J. Frey, died soon after their marriage and in 1854 she was united in marriage to William A. Graham at Fennimore. When she came to this vicinity, there was no village or city, her folks residing south of the city, in Fennimore township, which had been laid out at the time. She was the mother of eight children, two of who survive, Philip S. Graham and William A. of this city. Her husband and six children preceded her in death. Mrs. Graham’s span of life permitted her to see many changes in modes of living and travel and she greatly enjoyed and appreciated them. Throughout her life she enjoyed remarkably good health and found much pleasure in the visits with her many friends and acquaintances. She was a faithful member of the Methodist church for over 80 years. Funeral services for this splendid Christian woman were held at the M. E. Church Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock, conducted by Rev. G. A. Bird who spoke fittingly of the life of this excellent character, and true friend and neighbor. A large gathering of friends and acquaintances were present at the service to pay their last tribute of respect to the memory of the departed. Interment was made in Mt. Ida cemetery, beside those who preceded her in death. The last golden tint of the twilight As the sun sinks low in the west Will fall like a soft benediction O'ver the grave where our mother will rest In the conflict of life we shall miss her Where bravely she stood by our side We pause at the brink of the river Where her soul rifted forth on the tide And we feel the chill of the waters The waters so silent and wide Yet her life blessed memory shall linger Though the beautiful spiritt hath fled.6
