Alfred Graham - Only Headstone Left in Old Tampico Cem.

Does anyone have any connection with Alfred Graham who died in Tampico IL 11 Jul 1874?

I am the County Co-ordinator for IL Trails, Whiteside County http://www.iltrails.org/whiteside/

Denise McLoughlin who does the Tampico Historical Society Website http://www.tampicohistoricalsociety.citymax.com/page/page/22555.htm recently sent me info that he was all by himself in this old cemetery. Denise has a picture of this headstone right here..

I seem to become attached to these "lonely" old headstones, and I have the need to save them somehow. I'd like to present some background and history on Alfred Graham and his family on my Whiteside County website - before all traces of him and his family are gone forever. I did the same for Zachariah Melugin of Lee county (I host that site too) as his headstone is among the last surviving in that cemetery.

So if anyone knows when he was born- who his parents were - who his wife & children were - where he came from - please let me know..
