John D. Acuff was the son of Thomas Acuff,Sr and Martha Mary Saunders/Sanders Acuff. John D. was born on Aug 8 1813, one of at least 7 children. He was born near Puncheon Tennessee.
I have found records where one of John D Acuff's brothers was named James S. Acuff who was said to be born on Aug 18 1813. This was from this site: Acuff Info. Either John D and James S were twins or somewhere along the line one or the other's birth year is off by a year or so.
The siblings for John D. Acuff were:
James S. Acuff
William H. Acuff
Simeon Acuff (born feb 4 1818-not to be confused with the many other Simeon Acuffs)
Thomas D. Acuff, Jr
