In 1861 he enlisted for service in the Civil War as a member of the Fifth West Virginia Volunteer Infantry, took part in many great battles of the war, at the close of which he was mustered out with the rank of Captain. Capt. Grayum had suffered greatly from the hardships he had been called on to endure and never recovered his normal health, his death occuring in 1873*, at Gallipolis, Ohio, to which place he had removed after the termination of the war. In early manhood he married Harriet Carter, who was born in Massachusetts, in 1823, and died at Gallipolis, Ohio in 1912. They had four children, namely: Zim, who is resident of Columbus, Ohio, Elizabeth who died at Columbus, Ohio, in 1915; Robert who is a plasterer by trade, resides in the State of Washington; and C. W., who is a resident of Jones, Oklahoma."
