A letter dated 1988 between Marjory and Margaret Collie (Margaret was Graham's 2nd cousin, 1x removed) gives an insight to Graham's later life:[12]

'A few weeks ago we had a visit from Arabella Enock – Graham’s daughter by his second wife. She seemed quite nice and was extremely interested to hear anything I could tell her about her father. Arabella said Graham never spoke of his early life and she had never seen her grand parents Guy & Janie, or heard much about them. It seemed so sad.'
