Son of Margaret Graham.

From the Ogden Standard Examiner, 1902-11-26

Zon Graham, a young waiter, died yesterday morning at his home on East Second South street from a broken neck sustained Sunday night while bathing in the big pool at the Sanitarium. A dive into the pool where the water was but three feet in depth caused the fatal accident. Apparently his head struck the cement bottom with great force. Although he as rendered unconscious by the fall, it was not thought at the time that he had been seriously injured. Those in the pool at the time thought he had fainted or was intoxicated. Several of his friends laid him in a bathroom, where he remained until nearly daylight Monday morning. As he remained unconsious his friends became alarmed and sent for Dr. Root. Upon the arrival of the physician an examination of the senseless man developed the fact that instead of being under the influence of liquor he was suffering from a broken neck. The vertebrae had been either broken or dislocated at the point where the neck joins the body.
The unfortunate young man was at once removed to his home, where every attention was given him. He regained consciousness for a few moments Monday, but quickly suffered a relapse. Death came yesterday forenoon at 9 o'clock.
Graham, who was in his 25th year, has a twin brother, Zai Graham, a mother and four sisters living in Salt Lake City.
