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

LDS Batch M518273, Berrien Co. marriages Hannah J Grahamm 3/14/1857Orlando Bunker (Orlando Lorenzo Bunker)

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

Fred McOMBER, M.D., editor and proprieter of the Berrien Springs, "Era," was born in Orleans County, N.Y., on the 23rd of January, 1846. He traces his lineage to Scotland, and the family of which he is a members was one of the first represented in America. His grandfather on the paternal side, Pardon McOmber, was born in Connecticut, as was also his father, Asa. The mother of our subject was Marilla, daughter of John Gray and a native of New York State.

The marriage of Dr. McOmber occurred in 1872, and united him with Miss Minnie M., the daughter of the Hon. James Graham, an early settler of Berrien County, who served as Sheriff and also as a member of the Legislature. Dr. and Mrs. McOmber are the parents of one child, Graham O. Socially, Dr. McOmber is identified with Kilpatrick Post No. 39, G.A.R.; Western Star Lodge No. 39, A.F.&A.M., and other fraternal organizations. He was largely interested in the establshment of the St. Joseph Valley Railroad in 1889, and served as General Manager for some time. He owns a half-interest in the Hotel Oronoko, erected as a sanitarium and for the accommodation of summer visitors, and it is already quite popular thoughout this section of country. Always interested in educational matters, Dr. McOmber has rendered efficient service as a member of the School Board, and has done all in his power toward advancing the standard of education in his vicinity, and as a public-spirited citizen he has done a great deal of build up and advance the interests of Berrien Springs. ____________________________________________________________________________________________
