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
Elizabeth Acuff
Simeon Acuff (born feb 4 1818-not to be confused with the many other Simeon Acuffs)
Martha Acuff
Thomas D. Acuff, Jr

John D. Acuff became a Reverand sometime after 1835 in Grainger Co., Tennessee after having marrying his wife, Winniford "Winney" Kitts (b. 1812) on Oct 6 1831.

Their children included:
Thomas "Diddle Tom" Acuff b Jul 1833
Amy Amanda Acuff b mar 10 1835
Peter Acuff b dec 31 1835
Nancy Acuff b 1837
Catherine Acuff b 1838
Elizabeth Acuff b 1839
William S Acuff b Oct 1840
Mary "Polly" Acuff b Feb 1842
Joel Aldridge Acuff b Mar 16 1843
Matilda Acuff b feb 1847
Mary Malissa Acuff b Dec 20 1854
James Calvin Acuff b jan 28 1856
Fielden Harper Acuff b May 9 1859

John D. Acuff died on Jun 10 1898 in Knoxville, Tennessee, ten years before his wife.

His brother Simeon Acuff (1818-1893) was the great grandfather of Roy Acuff.
