J. R. Graves was born April 10, 1820 and died on June 26, 1893. He was a Baptist preacher, publisher, evangelist, debater, author, and editor. He was born in Chester, Vermont, the son of Z. C. Graves, and died in Memphis, Tennessee.

Though raised in a Congregational background, he joined a Baptist Church at age 15. He is recognized as one of the most influential men in the Southern Baptist Convention in the 19th century, and the chief promulgator of the Landmark movement.

While living he was followed and feared, hailed and confided in as a great teacher and leader, and denounced, if not shunned, as a disturber of the peace. A half century has passed since his public career commenced and several years since he "fought his last battle,­" but his name, . . .
