Notes for JOSEPH B. GRAHAM:

We do have a listing of a marriage for Joseph B. Graham and America E. Ellis on Oct 10, 1886 (7/254). This date would be one year after the passing of his first wife Rosanne Stuckey on December 16, 1885.

-----------------

Some other Grahams in Warrick County that are shown on marriage list around the 1884-1888 period: George W. Graham; Grant Graham; Helen Graham; and Benjamin F. Graham.

-----------------

History of Warrick, Spencer and Perry Counties, Indiana, first published in 1885, by Goodspeed, Bros & Co., Chicago then reprinted in 1973 by Unigraphic, Inc.

On page 198: "JOSEPH B. GRAHAM, farmer and stock-raiser, was born in Clinton County, Ohio, April 25, 1826. In July, 1847, he came to Indiana and located at Boonville, then a small village, where he remained a number of years working at his trade of wagon-making and during which time he also assisted in the erection of the county court house. In 1859 he moved to his farm in Hart Township, where he has ever since resided with the exception of three years while engaged in the drug trade at Lynnville. He owns a well improved farm of 160 acres under which is some of as fine coal as the State produces. For his wife he wedded Miss R. Stuckey, who came to this county from Ohio with her parents in 1837. Ten children have been born to them, these yet living: Robert M., Eugene, William, Douglas, Eli, Helen, Mary L., Rosa B. and Susan H. August 22, 1862, Mr Graham enlisted in Company F, Ninety-first Indiana Volunteer Infantry, but shortly after entering the service was compelled to enter the hospital on account of illness. By reason of protracted ill-health, he was honorably discharged June 25, 1863. Besides looking after his farming interests, Mr Graham manufactures annually about one hundred barrels of sorghum molasses. He is one of the prominent men of the county, has held various positions of honor and trust and takes an active interest in all matters of a beneficial nature to his county." On page 153 there is a bio of Robert M. Graham, b. 10 Nov 1849.

-----------------

Just FYI, the above Company F, 91st Indiana Voluteer Infantry that JB Graham was a member of for one year, the following is from the HISTORY OF WARRICK COUNTY, page 105: Fifteen (15) of the men from Company F died in the War. Company F rendezvous was at Evansville. On the 10th of October it was transported to Henderson, and from there it was sent in detachments to different parts of western Kentucky to guard that State from attacks of guerillas. Thus it remained until June, 1863, when it was united and started in pursuit of the Rebel, General Morgan. June 25, JB Graham was honorably discharged due to illness, so he did not go with his Company to the Cumberland Gap and Knoxville to join Sherman on his Atlanta campaign. It fought in all of the engagements that occured until Atlanta was taken September 1, 1864. Company F then pursued Hood, then went to Chattanooga. On the 30th of November it participated in the battle of Franklin (WHERE I LIVE NOW), and on the 15th and 16th of December in the battles before Nashville. Company F, 91st, was transferred to Washington, where it arrived on the 28th of January, 1865. It soon fought and captured Wilmington. It went from there to Goldsboro and Raleigh, and on the 3rd of May into camp at Salisbury, where it remained until June 26, 1865, when it was mustered out of service.

Monday, March 6, 1860; Court of Common Pleas

JB Graham/ Jacob Schneider vs. Thomas T. Baker

Mr. Baker was summoned to court for a promissary note of $125.

Found at Boonville Courthouse Records:

Joseph B Graham; Guardian of Earnest M Beesen; 16 years old in 1870. David W. Beeson-father of Earnest at his death in 1870. $500 Bond by JB and Isaac S French March 21, 1870. Property in Illinois mentioned in value at $500.00 plus other property at $250.00.

Estate of John Stuckey; JB Graham Executor. $4,000 Bond was established for the estate by JB and others noted on September 9, 1875: Isaac S. French, Thomas Ringham, WE Murphy.

Isacc S. French must have been a good friend of JB Graham besides a neighbor (look at map).

-------------------

Sept 2, 1858; Joseph Graham and John C. Graham were summoned to appear in court as witnesses for MARY JANE CALFEE at the Mercer County Courthouse Versus John Tuggle.

It was a charge of slander for $5,000 against Mr. Tuggle for spreading the word around town to several people that Ms. Calfee was pregnant (unwed). Mr. Tuggle was found guilty and charged $1,500.

Other witnesses: Thompson Graham from Mercer County, Virginia; David Graham from Wythe County, Virginia; and from Pulaski County, Virginia Joseph Graham ****SO THIS MIGHT BE THE WRONG Joseph!

--------------------

Found June, 2000, in the book WARRICK AND ITS PROMINENT PEOPLE, in the Boonville Library:

Page 23; "The earliest residents of Boonville were Nathaniel Hart, Adam Young, John Upham, James McCulla, Samuel Steele, Dr. Alva Pasco, and the GRAHAM FAMILY, some of whom are familiarly known to the older citizens and have descendants still residing in the county."

--------------------

HISTORY OF WARRICK COUNTY, page 89:

"The Odd Fellows Lodge, at Lynnville, No. 386, was organized in January, 1873, with J.L. Prigmore, N.G., and J.B. Graham, V.G. The total membership at the present time is twenty-nine. Present officers are

T.J. Schrode, N.G.; I.J. Baldwin, V.G.; Hiram McReynolds, Secretary, and W.F. Tremor, Treasurer. This

lodge has not been very prosperous, although it owns a building work about $500. Lynnville is probably

the third town in the county in matters of commercial importance.

Burial: Mt. Zion Cemetery; Lynnville, Indiana (Hwy 62-right on Tecumseh Rd.)

Notes for ROSE ANN STUCKEY:

According to the map of Warrick County of 1880 we have in our possession, that shows the properties of J.B. Graham (116 acres), J.W. Stephens (west of JB; 44 acres), and J. Stuckey (north of JB; 20 acres).

Is this J. Stuckey the brother or father of Rosanna ???? I believe it is the father because she came to Warrick County with her family in 1837 (12 years old) from Ohio (Clinton Co.??).

Joseph and Rosannah were married by Joshua Stephens, Justice of the Peace.

Notes for AMERICA E. ELLIS:

Provided by Brenda <brendae@sigecom.net>:

I checked all the DAR Warrick Bible and Family Records and found the following: Vol. VI, page 73

America E. Ellis married 10-10-1886 Joseph B. Graham. This was from the Ellis Bible.

--------------

1890 Census Ohio Twp Warrick County, Indiana:

America Graham; Head; W F ; Feb 1841; 59; Married; Born in Kentucky; Kentucky; Kentucky

Mother of eight children; 5 still alive

Mary E. Ellis; Daughter; W F; Feb 1875; Ind Ind Kentucky

Why was America not living with Joseph B Graham ?? (he is in Census of Hart Twp; and she shows herself as Head of Family at this census record).

Her first husband must have been an ELLIS who she had eight children....five alive in 1890.

---------------

Children of JOSEPH GRAHAM and ROSE STUCKEY are:

i. ROBERT M.2 GRAHAM, b. November 10, 1849, Boonville, Warrick County, Indiana; d. Aft 1885- Moved to Lindsey, California (Judge); m. (1) MARY JANE HUNSAKER, July 26, 1872, Warrick County, Hart Township, Indiana; m. (2) MAGGIE KOHLMEYER, November 06, 1884, Warrick County, Hart Township, Indiana.

Notes for ROBERT M. GRAHAM:

I have to comment on this man, Robert M. Graham. It is great to have this information on RM because he is such a free spirited, multi talented, and smart individual. From school teacher, drug store owner, practicing medicine, running for political office, school Principal, newspaper owner and editor, author of text school books, and we believe a Judge in California??. There is no telling what else he might have done in California?? I hope to know one day through continued research of this remarkable man.

--------------------------

Sent to me Mr. Brown Simpson of Apple Valley, CA:

HISTORY OF WARRICK, SPENCER AND PERRY COUNTIES, INDIANA; 1885:

Page 153: "ROBERT M. GRAHAM, editor and proprietor of the Boonville Standard, was born November 10, 1849, in Boonville, where he lived with his parents until eleven years old, when they removed to a farm in Hart Township. His education consisted of such as he could obtain in the common country schools, after which he attended the Boonville High School one term. Possessing an insatiable thirst for knowledge and a very retentive memory he has, however, by a habit of desultory reading, gained an extensive knowledge of general literature. July 26, 1872, he was married to Mary J. Hunsaker. In 1873, under the firm name of J. B. Graham & Son, he engaged in the drug business at Lynnville. In the meantime he taught school in winter and studied medicine under Dr. S.L. Tyner, and in 1876 commenced practice in Spencer County, opposite Owensboro, Kentucky, where he remained one year. He also practiced one year at Folsomville, after which he relinquished medicine and engaged in school teaching. He taught the graded school at Lynnville in 1872 and 1873, and was Principal of the Folsomville Graded Schools three terms. In 1880 he was defeated as a candidate for Superintendent of Warrick County. He left the teachers' ranks as one of the foremost educators in the county and in July, 1881, assumed full editorial and business control of the Boonville Standard. Although he has been in the newspaper business but a short time he has evinced considerable journalistic ability, has been a contributor to the educational periodicals of the State and is the author of a work designed for use as a text book for youthful students entitled "United States Rectangular Survey," which has been highly recommended by the leading educators of the State." The above also was in WARRICK AND ITS PROMINENT PEOPLE page 160-161.

Also, on HISTORY OF WARRICK COUNTY, page 80 it mentions that; "The STANDARD, is the only Republican party paper now published in the county, and it has come up through difficulties and adverse political majorities to a front rank in county journalism. This is mainly due to the efforts of the present owner and editor, R.M. Graham."

I believe this R.M. Graham to be our Robert M. The following was sent to me by Mr. John Powell who looked up page 42 in the book listed above for me:

Page 42 in the book quotes articles in the Boonville Enquirer about the school year 1880-1881. R. M. Graham is mentioned in a one sentence paragraph which says, "Professor Davidson and R. M. Graham

have planned a select high school in Boonville on April 12, 1881."

"I don't know what "a select high school" was. Professor J. W. Davidson was principal of the public schools in Boonville." (From: Mr. John Powell)

In July of 1881, RM took ownership of the local newspaper so this corresponds extremely well.
