She is buried next to a oblisk monument for Gallup, with John S Gallup died Jan 14, 1902 aged 57 years 2ms, (making his birth 11/ 1844), Xenia B his wife on the front looking west. On the back of the monument, looking east, is Mrs E A Graham died Jan 5, 1880 age 54 yers (making her birth about 1825). To the left of this is a stone for John S. and to the left of that a stone for Rose Arazina Camfield 1852-1931. Next stone to the left is for Marsh, Ben J and Mabel. To the right of Mrs E A Graham is a stone for Xenia Belle Gallup 1847- 1933. This may lead to parent info on Rose, more research needed. I believe that Mrs E A Graham was her mother and that Xenia her sister. CAG 6/2001 (They are listed as sisters on the 1930 census) Note that the pronunciations of Zena and Xenia are very similar. I have also found in these records that people often went by their middle name and that records could show either name. CAG 7/2001

Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims includes a membership application for May Graham Hull, a resident of St. Joseph, Burien Co, MI; born there Aug 5, 1873; married William Harvey Hull, Nov 1894. She was the daughter of Edmon Alford Graham, born Nov 14, 1841; died June 2, 1904, and his wife Edwina C Bunker, born Sept. 17, 1848; married June 20, 1869. I don't see how this fits in, but his initials and the locations may provide a clue. CAG 6/2001 See record above for alternate name! Her record further states that Edmon A Graham 1841-1904 was the son of John Graham 1819-1875 & Lucinda Nichols 1823-1911. On another report I found another child of John & Lucinda listed as Zora Graham b.1861 CAG 7/2001
