Graham, George 1772-1830 Lawyer; born in Dumfries, Va., about 1772; graduated at Columbia College in 1790; began the practice of law in Dumfries, but later settled in Fairfax county, where he recruited the Fairfax light-horse which he led in the War of 1812. He was acting Secretary of War in 1815-18; and was then sent on a perilous mission to Galveston Island, where General Lallemande, the chief of artillery in Napoleon's army, had founded a colony with 600 armed settlers, whom he persuaded to give up their undertaking and submit to the United States government. He is also said to have been instrumental in saving the government $250,000 by successfully concluding the Indian factorage affairs. He died in Washington, D. C., in August, 1830.
