Mortuary Record of William Fisher Graves

 A couple of interesting notes, (Row # 7) he died of Typhoid Fever at a hospital in Louisville KY. The doctor who attended him was famous in his own right, he was the former surgeon general of the Confederacy.  He was 62 years of age and had been hill for 7 days. He was buried at The Old Methodist Cemetery in Chaplin KY 31 June 1886. I have old letters from the family that talk of attending the funeral.
