The parents of Mark Graves were James Henry Graves and Loe Murray, according to the Tennessee Deaths and Burials Index, 1874-1955, and the county history book.

James Henry Graves came to McLemoresville, Tennessee, from Virginia and settled in the 5th District. He was married three times. His first wife was Loe Murray, the second was Harriett Emily Jolly, daughter of Jim Jolly, whom he married July 5, 1840, and the third was Elizabeth. Henry and Harriet Emily Graves divorced in 1841. The family lived in a two-room log house. Mark Graves attended a subscription school for three months each year.

He fought in several battles including Shiloh, Franklin, Nashville, and near Atlanta, where he was slightly wounded.
Discharged in Corinth, 1865
Discharged at Paducah, 1865
Captured in Mclemoresville, 1865

Mark Graves married Nettie Wallace January 26, 1900. According to the 1900 census, Mark Graves had been married twice and Nettie Graves once. Children listed on the 1900 census were Henry, Rena, Lillie, Willie, Bertha, Homer, and Maggie B. Seven of nine children survived. Also, in the household was Emma Graves, a daughter-in-law and Alice M. Graves, a grandson.

Maggie B. Graves married Martin R. Gilbraith.

Mr. Graves applied for his pension November 12, 1907, but he did not receive it until 1912. There were two discrepancies. One was that the value of the farm was stated to be $600 then $500. The second was that Mark Graves said he was discharged in Corinth and in Paducah. He was probably mustered out in one of the two. His dependents were his wife, age 48, and three daughters.
