I would certainly appreciate the help. You will probably have to e-mail me because I tried you a couple of times and it came back with mail failure. I must not be reading the address right.-it is hard to make out (new glasses maybe !!)

First--thank you for the attachments you sent--I appreciate them very much.

I don't know when Sarah Jane was born but can give you clues by his dates and the marriage.

Sarah Jane Graves married John Hamilton Lewis Jr 1873
He was born about 1853 in Giles Co Tennessee and died 1920 in Oklahoma

Sarah Jane may have died around 1879 because John remarried about then.

Hi Ilene
Sorry I didn't get to your other message--glad you sent another.
Yes I have photo (copy) of Gray Tom-came out of one of the older Baxter Co newsletters. It shows 2 older men -both in suits-hats-white shirts-in front of a wood plank sided house--man on left is id'ed as Thomas "Gray Tom" Kasinger and he has a fiddle and bow in his hands. His hair and beard is snow white.
I have that he was born @ 1844 but I've also seen the dates 1848-1854 so I'm not sure which date is correct. I have that he died in 1929 Muskogee Oklahoma .
I would like to believe that many photos was taken of this man who could "make the hairs stand up" when he played his fiddle. I'd love to see some.
