Dear Delores,
I suspect that this article was written about Jesse Harrison Gleaves b. 6 May 1859 in Wilson Co., TN. He was married to Annie Hawks on 28th Nov, 1880. From my notes, he followed his father's footsteps and went into farming, and was pretty well to do. When he was only sixteen, he began working the land, and purchased 35 acres prior to marrying in 1880. His son Jesse Hugh Gleaves would have only been 10 when this article was written, and I'm not aware of any other Jesse's in the time frame. Thanks for the info...maybe he started selling farm equipment in conjuction with his own farming operations? He died after 1899 in Chattanooga, TN.
