John Graham (1822-1912) is known as the father of the Charlestown (or Cecil County) style of decoy making.  Decoys from this area generally feature a shelf carved on the body for the head to sit on, a tail that etends straight back (no flip upwards) along the chine line of the decoy,  Many of his carvings have mandibles and nostrils, as this one does.
