Descendants of James R. Graham
This genealogy appears in the Giles County records for the reason that Martha Graham, widow, moved from Coffee Co., TN to Giles County after the death of her husband. I do not know why she moved there, but some of her younger children married there, as did my Grandparents, Jefferson Davis Walker and Josephine Graham. For the benefit of persons not familiar with the standard abbreviations used in genealogy, the
following explanations are given. Perhaps the remainder will be self-explanatory
sufficiently for readers to recognize the intent. A acre(s) Counties b. born Bd. Bedford bur. buried Cf. Coffee cem. cemetery Fr. Franklin Co. County Gi. Giles d. died Grsn. Grayson F Female Mu.

Proof of kinship is often difficult for many reasons. True genealogy is an exacting (otherwise useless) endeavor, yet is fascinating as well as frustrating. That explains the necessity for proofs, as they can best be found. The very simplest unknown clue can often open many doors and solve many puzzles. Even more true is the joy of sharing with those who are really interested in "where we came from and of what we are made." My sincere appreciation for the contributions of various members of our family and the precious people who preceeded me and gave me my heritage. If history (genealogy) is not truth it only serves the satisfaction of the one who "lays the lie" to events, circumstances and the nature of humans. I do not believe anyone, other than Jesus Christ, has reached perfection. He instructed us to be compassionate and forgiving. If we find things we would rather not have happened, we must be as Christ told the Apostles: "Behold, I send you forth as sheep amidst the wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." Matthew 10:16. Any and all corrections are welcome. I am not infallible, as careful and well-intentioned as I have tried to be. I shall appreciate hearing from anyone who can provide any information that may help in the pursuit of these lineages. Also any corrections to the information herein will be most appreciated. I hope you will find the genealogy and miscellaneous notes interesting and helpful. Perhaps my methods are different from others, but I hope you will be able to understand our families. James R.

Upon examination of the 1933 interview it appears to have written possibly been written from notes taken during that interview. The interview itself may have been self- contradictatory or the notes may have been made in haste and improperly transcribed, possibly influenced by the memory and impressions of the writer. This is not said to belittle the efforts of the gentleman or in any way criticize anyone connected therewith. However, after so long a time, all these possibilities must be taken into account because it has so many inconsistencies. All of the information furnished here is far from enough to establish many real facts of the birth and youth of Patsy. I also have no clue to the sisters of Patsy.

"This is a copy of the family record of Jack GRAHAM, who lives here in Gainesville, dated 1933 in Altus, OK. "Mrs. Lucinda GRAHAM CROSSLIN is the daughter of Patsy GRAHAM, who is the daughter of Palina GLASS, who is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. CAMBELLIN, who is the full blood Indians. "Mrs. CROSSLIN was born in Hillsboro, Coffee County, Tennessee, on April the 2nd 1854. "Mrs. CROSSLIN remembers hearing her grandmother, Mrs. Palina GLASS, tell many times of the time when they were ordered to leave Georgia, and how heart broken they were when they were driven from their home there. The Mr. and Mrs. CAMBELLIN, Ben CAMBELLIN, (Mr. CAMBELLIN'S brother) and other brothers and sisters, owned quite a lot of land in Georgia at the time they were driven out. "They crossed over into Virginia and lived there for a while. It was while in Virginia, that Miss Palina CAMBELLIN married Mr. GLASS. After leaving Virginia, they encountered many hardships and persecutions from the white men and Indian tribes along the way. Sometime there would be a number of their tribe killed, men, women and children would be murdered after stopping at places long enough to try to get something together to live on, or rest a while from their tiresome travels. "It was while on this journey from Virginia that Mrs. GLASS'S sister dies, leaving Nancy, Patsy and Betsy to be cared for by Mr. and Mrs. GLASS'S brother, Richard GLASS. "Mrs. CROSSLIN remembers Jack, Frank and Billy GLASS, her uncles. Mrs. Paulina GLASS'S sons, how they suffered hardships in crossing the mountains and being exposed to all kinds of weather. They told of crossing a great river in boats and the danger they were subjected to. Before landing in Coffee County, Tennessee, they lost a great number of tribe from battles, exposure and etc. "The tribe of Cherokees make their home in Coffee County, Tennessee, for years, after which some went to Oklahoma and some to Grayson County, Texas. Will GRAHAM was the first to leave Tennessee and go to Grayson Co., Texas. "After a number of years James, John, Richard and Dee GRAHAM, with their sisters Lucinda, Manda, Mary and Josie, came on to make their homes there. "Patsy GRAHAM, the mother of the above named children spent her last few days of her life with her son, Will GRAHAM, at Collinsville, Grayson, Texas." ANALYSIS OF ABOVE LEGEND "Mrs. CROSSLIN remembers hearing her grandmother, Mrs. Palina GLASS, tell many times of the time when they were ordered to leave Georgia...." [This would indicate Polina was born in GA, not correct according to census, she was born in VA.] "From Family Record of Jack GRAHAM, who lives here in Gainesville, dated 1933 in Altus, OK. "The Mr. and Mrs. CAMBELLIN, Ben CAMBELLIN, (Mr. CAMBELLIN'S brother) and other brothers and sisters, owned quite a lot of land in Georgia...." [I do not know who the Mr. and Mrs. CAMBELLIN are meant to be here, unless they are supposed to be parents of Martha, Nancy and Betsy. Ben CAMDEN is appently the father of Polina who mar. Richard GLASS, which may indicate Polina was a cousin of the mother of Martha, Nancy and Betsy. In a following statement it is indicated Richard GLASS was a brother of either of either the father or mother of these 3 girls. Another document mentions Will and Chula CAMBELLIN as parents - have not seen any records for a Will (William), however it is noted Martha and James GRAHAM name their first son William. It is possible Will and Chula are their parents and were the ones who died in migrating. Also they possibly lived in a different area and died on their way to join up with other family members in Rockbridge Co., VA.] "It was while in Virginia, that Miss Palina CAMBELLIN married Mr. GLASS....." [This is an accurate statement according to marriage record.] "It was while on this journey from Virginia that Mrs. GLASS'S sister dies, leaving Nancy, Patsy (Martha) and Betsy to be cared for by Mr. and Mrs. GLASS'S brother, Richard GLASS." [This confusing statement could mean that Richard GLASS was a brother of either the father or the mother of the 3 girls. I am also looking at the possibility that Richard was the father and the mother died and he then mar. a sister of his first wife, Polina, even though this statement would negate that hypothesis. Any enlightenment will be appreciated.] "Mrs. CROSSLIN remembers Jack, Frank and Billy GLASS, her uncles. Mrs. Paulina GLASS' sons.... [This could not be accurate if Richard was their Uncle, so these 3 men would be cousins.] "The tribe of Cherokees make their home in Coffee County, Tennessee, for years, after which some went to Oklahoma and some to Grayson County, Texas. [I have not looked at OK census records for Glass, Graham or Camden.] COMMENTS OF COMPILER: The preceding information, although confusing, has been extremely instru-mental in the little success I have had in my research. That research has been intermittent through the past 20 years. Anyone who has done much work in this pursuit knows it is almost impossible to overcome some situations, and at a loss of what to do next, it will be put aside and other lines worked on. Having great difficulty on so many of my lines and being of limited ability to travel to the places to do research is a great hindrance. However I have been fortunate in being able to buy microfilm for the records that remain after all the wars, fires and other causes of destruction of courthouses. The southern states has many records lost and destroyed during the Civil War and that makes it hard to find information where and in the period needed. Of the CAMDEN marriages found in Virginia, including Polina, daughter of Ben CAMDEN to Richard GLASS, I see no other daughter who is likely to be the mother of our Martha who married James GRAHAM. No marriage has been found for them, which would give us her maiden name. Although the first few of their children are said to have been born in Maury Co., TN, I have not found any records for them there. It appears they married about 1836 and in 1840 they are in Coffee Co., TN federal census. With all the deviations of ages in the census records, it is apparent Martha (Patsy) was born several years before Polina CAMDEN married Richard GLASS. I have worked with the census records to try to determine how many sons and daughters the GLASS family had and come to no conclusion. Cemetery records in Coffee Co. have been published. Nothing in them pertain to our families. Census work needs to be done on the CAMDEN family in Virginia, although the ones needed are not existing. It may be they were in another county before the marriages found where the parents of Patsy took place. The name CAMDEN is rare in records so one would think it easy to follow. That has not proven to be true in my work but it does not mean I will give up trying. There are possibilities of deed records and other sources. To date I have no idea what became of Patsy's two sisters, and I am at a loss of how to try to find them.

There are listings as late as 1875 for a James R. GRAHAM, but in another District. It is interesting to note William GRAHAM, b. 1872 in the 1880 census, but I do not find any sale of the land or other taxes in Coffee Co. Is it possible our James GRAHAM moved to Giles Co., TN with his family and the last son was born there? I have not seen any probate or death records in this period in Giles Co. for him. The deeds from 1870 through 1880 in Coffee Co., TN need to be researched.
