James Fisher Graves (1) was born 25 Dec. 1884, and died in 1966 in Del Rio, Val Verde Co., TX.  (There is no death certificate on file with Texas Dept. of Vital Records, and he is not listed in the Social Security Death Index.)  He married Narcissus E. Lockley, on 23 Dec. 1903.  Narcissus was born about 1885 in TX, and died in 1924 in Denton, Denton Co., TX.  His family was probably living in San Saba Co., TX in 1900.

Narcissus was a daughter of ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Lockley and Martha Minerva Berry.  Martha was born 29 April 1851 in Fayette Co., AL, died 3 July 1922 in San Saba, San Saba Co., TX, and was buried 5 July 1922 in Wallace Creek Cem., San Saba, TX.  Martha was a daughter of William Clarence Berry and Massa Ann Tompkins.

In addition to Narcissus, Martha and her husband had another daughter, Mary Irene Lockley, born about 1881 in TX, buried in Wallace Creek Cem., San Saba, TX, who married George William Graves on 27 Oct. 1895 in Lampassas Co., TX.  He died in NM.  Mary and George had a son, James L. Graves, born 9 April 1897, died 24 June 1972, buried 26 June 1972 in Wallace Creek Cem., all in San Saba, San Saba Co., TX.  James L. Graves had one daughter who married Mr. Williams.

It is suspected that George William Graves was a brother of James Fisher Graves, but there is no proof of that.  If James Fisher Graves could be found in the 1900 census as a child in the household of his parents, and then George could be found in the 1880 census with the same parents, that would be very helpful.

James Fisher Graves and family were in the 1910 census for San Saba, San Saba Co., TX, ED 214, page 196A, dwelling 149, listing J. Fisher, 27, TX, TX, KY, wife N.E., 24, OK, Holland, AL, son Auther, 5, TX, TX, OK, dau. Daisey, 2, TX, TX, OK, mother-in-law M.M.
