  1. This Photo is of Our Great Great Grandfather. We were very suprised and excited to see it posted. If you have anymore information of photos please contact us. Thank you very much.

    • I’m delighted to hear from family; the postcard was up on eBay; I don’t have any more info, beyond this bit on his wife: “Joseph Graham, the grandfather, was a pioneer minister in Kentucky and Indiana, and he afterward preached in Coles county, Illinois, during its early settlement, his death there occurring. His wife bore the maiden name of Rhoda Canut. John W. Graham, father of Mrs. Endersby, was a farmer by occupation and removed to Coles county, Illinois, during the early girlhood of his daughter Charity. There his death occurred in 1839, when he was forty years of age. In the following year his widow came to Iowa and afterward married Andrew F. Simons, who followed farming in Henry county. There were two children of this marriage: Sarah, the wife of Alfred Giauque, of Nebraska; and William, deceased.” And this additional bit on Sarah Sally Simmons: “Born in Mt Pleasant, Henry, Iowa, USA on 7 Jun 1844 to Andrew F Simons and Maria Elliott Graham. Sarah Sally married Alfred T Giauque and had 7 children. She passed away on 27 Nov 1929 in York, York, Nebraska, USA.” Children included Amy, Ada, Florence.
