BOLTON, NC (FAYETTEVILLE OBSERVER) — Jessie F. Graham, perhaps the longest-serving member of the Columbus County Board of Elections, died Sunday. He was 78.

Graham, a longtime minister at Myrtle Grove First born Church of the Living God in New Hanover county, collapsed in the pulpit.

He was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington and pronounced dead.

In recent years, Graham had served as the second bishop at the church, said Carla Strickland, supervisor of the Board of Elections.
