I found a Hugh Curry Pharris at the Jackson Co.TN courthouse when looking for other Pharris info. All I can vaguely remember is that Andrew Jackson Pharris was married to Janie Grisham. A. J. Janie were married on March 10, 1886. I know that a Lola Pharris that married O.W. Eller fits in there somewhere, I think as one of Andy's kids. Zephy Pharis (one r) was also one of Andy's kids and she was married to W.H. Elrod on 11/7/1917. I think now the Hugh Pharris that I was thinking about was probably in his 70's when he died. So he would be too young to be the one you are looking for. He and his ex-wife were both teachers there in Gainesboro, TN (Jackson Co,TN) I have done lots of research there but don't have all my notes in front of me. Sorry, but if I can help any other way, let me know.

hey Helen: did you happen to get a copy of the Jackson County Cemetery book? I have it and have found a lot of the people you mentioned. Charles Jackson was born 15 Sept 1925 & died 14 Oct 1927. Son of Hugh and Coma (Loftis) Pharris. There is a Minnie Bell Pharris (b) 18 Sep 1903 and (d) 21 Sep 1904, dau of Andrew Jackson & JaNie (Grisham) Pharris. (I think you had JaMie but meant N instead of M.)
Sorry, it does make a difference. haha Andrew Jackson Pharris was (b) 22 Nov 1857 and (d) 21 Dec 1939. Does not say whom his parents were. Janie Grisham Pharris was (b) 24 Sep 1865 & (d) 06 Aug 1932. Andrew Jackson's obituary says his name was Johnson, but we know that was wrong. The Jackson County Sentinel lists the date of death for Janie as being, 05 Aug instead of 06. There is a tiny Andrew Jackson Pharris cemetery listed on Hwy. 53. there are Pharrises, Bockman, Harris, Burton's and Huffs buried there. I do have a photo of Janie and A.J's marker, somewhere. I can not place them in my line but know of people they are related to. This Cemetery Book also has an extensive listing on the Granville Cemetery, so if you are in the Jackson Co area, you can check it out at the Library...... Larry Mabry and Reda Bilbrey did a superb job ! ! Lots of people missed out on the books. Janie Grisham was the dau of Pryor and Martha J. (Thorneberry) Grisham.
Guess thats all for now. If I can confuse you more. let me know.

Can you believe I forgot something??? hahah
Pryor Grisham and (Marthie) Martha are buried in the Rob Draper Cem close to downtown Gainesboro. If you would be interested in the dates of their births and deaths, let me know.
I am going to bed.

Thanks Jane for the info. I have pics of that cemetery. Right now I would like to see the historical Soc. do something with the Pharris home as it has been in the Pharris family since the late 1700's. I don't know who to get in tough with about it. My A.J Pharris was born in the house that is on the property now & the house is going to pot.
My e-mail is gma3g2b@hotmail.com I have a lot of Pharris info so feel free to get in touch.

Hello Helen: I am just going over the PHARRIS board again and noticed that your names include some of Pharris gender but not in our direct line. The Sandra Jane Pharris that you mentioned passed away back in January of this year. She lived in Brentwood and was a noted RealEstate person. She did name that her mother was Marie Carter Pharris BUT her dad's name was not mentioned, either dead or alive. For some reason, I was thinking Marie has passed away too. I do recall the name Ellen too but not too sure whom she was, other than a sister to Sandra. I think she was about 60+ yrs old. I knew she wasn't a family (close) member so I read the death notice and discarded the paper. I can try to check on her and see if I can get you the obituary.

Jane Ellen Pharris was the daughter of Hugh Lee & marie Carter Pharris. Hugh Lee was the grandson of Andrew Jackson & Janie Grisham Pharris. The old homestead is still near Granville but it is falling apart. Miss Marie was in a nursing home near Cookeville the last I knew.

Hello,I am planning a trip to Granville soon and I saw your post on the old Pharris homeplace settled late 1700. I assume you are talking about the William and Catherine Johnston Pharris homeplace. Is it still standing? I was hoping to find it or the land it was on. They are my 4th great grandparents. My email is fharrell77@gmail.com. Thanks. Frances
