THOMAS M. GRAVES, Calloway County, was born September 18, 1824, in Marshall County, Tenn., the youngest of ten children born to Samuel and Ellen (Wilson) Graves. The father was a farmer, was a native of Georgia, whence he moved in 1800 to Tennessee. He died in 1879 at the advanced age of eighty-nine years. Our subject was reared on a farm, but at the age of nineteen began reading medicine with Dr. Moore of Bedford County, and practiced for several years; moved to Kentucky in 1852; in 1854 went to Nashville, attended one course at the Nashville College. After several years’ practice in his native county, he came in 1852 to Calloway County, and located on a farm four miles southwest of town, and has since been in active practice, and stands high in his profession. He is a member of the A. F. & A. M., and heartily indorses the temperance movement. He has been married three times. His first wife was Miss Martha Fleming; she died soon after marriage. By his second wife, Susanna M. Wilson, there are three children living: James A., Ula and Cora. The doctor’s present wife is Miss Nannie E. Harding; this union has given three children: Wildy H., Rube E. and Polly C.
