Carrie B. Graham (c.1862-1937) was born in Fort Ann, New York, and died in Glens Falls, New York. She became interested in Christian Science in early 1884 when she was healed by Fannie M. Silsbee, a student of Mary Baker Eddy's. Graham studied with Eddy in September 1884 and joined the Christian Scientist Association in November of that year. Her initial involvement in the Christian Science movement ended in early 1885 when she aligned herself with Kate Taylor and other students who supported the publication of Taylor's pamphlet, Selfhood Lost In Godhood. The pamphlet, according to the minutes of the Christian Scientist Association, defamed Science and Health and encouraged people to study with unauthorized teachers of Christian Science, including Edward J. Arens. In 1891, Graham, now Carrie B. Mosier, wrote to Mary Baker Eddy expressing regret at what happened in 1885 and asking for her forgiveness. Eddy's reply is not extant, but correspondence suggests that Graham became involved with a group of Christian Scientists in Glens Falls. There is no record of Graham uniting with The First Church of Christ, Scientist.
