Grafström belonged to the literary circle centred on Malla Silfverstolpe. He wrote a famous biography of his father-in-law Frans Michael Franzén. Some of Grafström's poetry was set to music by the composer Johan Erik Nordblom. His daughter married Artur Hazelius, the teacher and folklorist. In his later years, Grafström was a vocal exponent of the expansion of the railway network into Norrland. He died at Umeå, aged 80.
