This grave is on private property on the Double Heart Ranch, about mile East of the Apache Creek Store. This man was very abusive to his wife, beating her unmercifully especially when drunk. His young son and a cousin decided to kill him when they found he threatened to kill the whole family. They shot him 37 times with a 22 single shot rifle, killing him. The son could not stand to see his mother abused any longer. Mrs. Graham and others of the family are buried in the Apache Creek Cemetery.
