Her obituary from Berrien County Record, January 10, 1880. Town and County page.
"A dispatch from Niles, of Jan. 6th, says: "Mrs. Elizabeth Graham, a widow woman of perhaps 45 years of age, living in this city, was found dead in her bed yesterday morning. A neighbor woman who was sleeping with her, hearing some one knock- ing at the door, called to her, nut found her dead and cold. The coroner's jury concluded that she died from natural causes."
