Jacob Graves

At the time of the correspondence noted below, soldier was living in Tippah County, Mississippi

States in the year 1813 or 1814 that he was drafted in Franklin County Tennessee...

Jacob Graves married 2nd Elizabeth Bromly in 1842; he was previously married to Peggy Johnson, who died about 1825

Jacob died in Tippah County, Mississippi on March 9, 1876; they had previously lived in Tishomingo County, Mississippi

Note:  I have ancestors who lived in Franklin County, Tennessee who moved to southern Illinois. Nancy (Graves) Johnson, also moved from Tennessee to southern Illinois (she is my ancestor as well).  I don't believe Nancy was from Franklin County or is related to this Jacob Graves, but since I do not know who her parents were, I can't rule them out yet.
