Son of William and Jane (French) Graham.

The area where Graham Hill School is located was named after
Walter Graham, who moved to Seattle in 1853.

Graham came from New York and, at the age of 27, took up a claim along the shores of Lake Washington.

His property included the uplands near Seward Park,
which was called Graham's Peninsula. In 1856, Graham built a home on the hillside and planted an apple orchard.
