Jesse TUBB/TUBBS/TUB born 1814 in TN, according to Census records. Daughter Jane A. says he was born in GA. He married first to Grace CALLAWAY 25 Dec. 1836. She reported to be from AL. In the 1850 Union Parish, LA Census, shows his wife as "Sarah" and 3 children born in MS. According to her age, the children must be from Grace, but I can find no record of a marriage between Jesse and a Sarah. Apparently they moved to AR long enough to have one child and then on to Grimes and Leon Co., TX. Jesse was a Farmer and a Missionary Baptist Preacher. By 1870-80, he is married to an Elizabeth_____?
He died in 1890 and is buried in First Street Cemetery, listed as Rev. Jesse Tubbs. The Cemetery has all but been destroyed by the TX Ranger's Museum in order to build a parking lot. Markers and known graves are missing, now, but there are records showing the burials. I believe his widow Elizabeth A. Tubbs married Elijah Clark Brown in 1893 and died sometime after 1900 Census, but I cannot find any death or burial records for her. In the 1850 Census next to Jesse is a John Tubb(s) and his wife, also an Elizabeth-are they related to Jesse and how? Thank you for any information you may be able to share. JBrown
