Goodspeed's "BIOGRAPHY OF UNION COUNTY, TENNESSEE (1887)" - "Hon. Coram Acuff, lawyer, was born in Grainger County August 23, 1846, the son of Simeon and Susan, (nee Strange) Acuff.... He served in Company D, First Tennessee Federal Infantry.... [In 1874] he was elected county court clerk of Union County, and was twice re-elected, serving twelve years. In 1886 he was admitted to the bar, having read and learned of the law during his clerkship. He was a representative of two counties in the Legislature in 1887-88." According to family historian Judd Acuff, Coram, while a Representative in the Tennessee General Assembly in 1887-1889, was the first former Federal soldier in the Tennessee Legislature who voted in favor of pensions for Confederate veterans. Coram also served as Union County Clerk from 1896-1910.
