William Henry Graham1

M, b. 7 July 1867, d. 25 April 1916
FatherGeorge Henry Graham1 b. 20 Jun 1840, d. 7 May 1915
MotherEllen Matilda Lloy b. 26 May 1842
     William Henry Graham was born on 7 July 1867 at Nova Scotia.2 He appeared on the census of between 1891 and 1901 at Three Fathom Harbour, Halifax Co, Nova Scotia; with his parents.3,2 He was a fisherman in April 1891.3 He died on 25 April 1916; while hauling lobster traps. This would explain why the "Graham" sword passed from George Henry Graham to William and to Ruth McFarlen Smith and then to her daughter Edna E Smith.
The account was in "The Halifax Herald", Friday, April 28, 1916, Page 8, PANS reel 6813:
"FISHERMEN DROWNED
"Alec. Conrod and William Graham, of Three Fathom Harbor,(sic), Lose Their Lives While Out in Boat.
"The village of Three Fathom Harbor(sic) is in mourning for two men of that place who are believed to have met their death by drowning when out fishing on Thursday morning. The men are Alec Conrod and William Graham.
"At five o'clock on Tuesday morning they set out from the harbor(sic) to overhaul their traps about a half-mile offshore. The fishing boats which leave the harbor at this hour usually return at ten o'clock in the morning, but there was no sign of the craft occupied by Conrod and Graham when the others came back. The people of the village became anxious about them and some of the boats went out again. A board which is believed to have been used as a seat in the boat was picked up and some of the searchers sighted what looked like an overturned boat some distance out to sea. It was then concluded that the boat had been capsized in some way and that the two men had been drowned. There was no sign of the bodies.
"Alec Conrod was thirty years of age and married. William Graham was forty-eight years of age. He was a son of the late George H. Graham, of Three Fathom Harbor. Mrs. Sydney R. Smith, Pleasant street, Halifax, is a sister of Mr. Graham."4
