Searching for any information for the father of Graham Roberts(Birth 1883, Death abt. 1965). I have been told his father's name was James. His mother's name was India. Graham lived in Virginia and moved to Tennessee at an early age with his mother and step father John Taylor. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

If you search on www.familysearch.org There is a Graham Roberts in the 1910 and 1920 census for Abingdon, Washington County, Virginia. He is living with his Step father and his Mother, John C. Young and India Young. Graham appears in the 1920 and 1930 censuses in Meigs County Tennessee with his wife.
Do you know India's maiden name? That might help locate her marriage to Graham's father.

Her maiden name was Young. My grandfather actually remembers a little about her.

The Familysearch website also has Tennessee death transcriptions, and it says India's father was Charles Taylor. She appears to be living with him and her sister Louise in Rich Valley, Smyth County VA in 1880.
In the Virginia death index, there are two likely James Roberts, one who died in Smyth County, and one in Washington County.

According to the SS Death Index, he died in February 1965 in Tennessee. Have you ordered a copy of his death certificate? If the informant knew his father's name, it should be on the certificate.

And I don't know if you know this or not, but he, his wife, and 2 of his children have memorials on Find a Grave. His is here; you can click on his family members' names to get to their memorials:
