Is this sprout above the graft or from the rootstock?

My peach tree mostly died over winter.  Possibly -22F was too cold for it?  I noticed two buds sprouted near the graft, I'm just not sure if they're from the Red Haven scion wood or from the root stock.  I can see the diagonal graft and they seem to be on the good side of it but I'd love a second opinion.  Thanks!!!

I lost all of my pears , cherries and apples two and three years ago to blight. They all budded out just like that and I have let them grow just to see if they come back true. One cherry came back as a rootstock variety, One pear has fruit this year so we will see.

I think I would let it grow and see what you get. At the end of the day I think you could always graft back onto it?

Looks to be very much on the scion side of things from what I can see. Lucky you!
