        Known children of Tabitha2 Ra(y)burn and Aaron Parker were as follows:
               7       i.       Sintha3 Parker was born on 10 Mar 1804 in TN; is listed in Alexander's bible which gives her birthdate as March 10, 1804. She married Alexander Graham, son of Cornelious (Neil) Graham and ?????Mary Louella/Leweler (--?--), on 13 Dec 1820 in Covington??, MS; bible gives date. She died on 2 Jul 1897 in Newton, MS, at age 93; bible give death date,_itha Graham wife of Alexander Graham, ___d July 2, 1897 aged 93 years, ___ months, and twenty-two days
       Becky Chaney says...[Now that we know when Sintha Parker was born, the number of months must have been a 3 and the number of years should have been a 93. In looking at my copy of the original, I can see that the number was perhaps 93 all along.-rfc].
        She was listed as he oldest person in Newton County. ( Below was copied from work of Becky Chaney)
       
       According to A. J. Brown, the oldest person in Newton County in 1894 was Sintha Parker Graham. She was known to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as "Crippled Granny."
       
       According to "Aunt" Kate Gray, Sintha lived in the home of William Graham in her latter years and liked to smoke "rabbit tobacco" in a corncob pipe. Aunt Kate’s husband, William Eugene Graham, remembered helping the older boys go in search of it. She says that Sintha suffered a stroke which left her unable to care for herself. She spent most of her days sitting by the fire. Myrna Rose Martin told me that Sintha lived with Winston Graham and his family some also. Her grandmother, Susie Graham Bond, also remembered helping to care for her grandmother Sintha. As of 1880, Sintha Parker and Alexander Graham (or the family of) lived at 579b, beat 2, Newton, MS. She appeared on the census; Alexander died. In the household of NC (son in law of Cynthia) you find... N. C. Graham, 35MS/TN/MS, Sarah M. 35MS/NC/NC,Ony R. (female), 3MS, Theodosia, (female) Feb 1880, Cynthia Graham, mother, 75NC.
        Alexander GRAHAM was born on 1 Aug 1801 in NC; In Alexander's bible he says he was born 1 August 1801. Over the years Alexander birthdate has been high debated, for years many said 30 Dec 1782, I think the 1782 date was based on the age in the 1850 census, where he is 20 years to old, it was also supported by the present of a old male in Alexander house hold in 1830 and 1840 census. William's bible says bible says his father at death is 74 years, 4 or 7 months, and 27 days. It should say 74 years, 9 month and 25days.
        He died on 26 May 1876 in Ms, Newton, Decatur, at age 74. He was Fact 1; s listed in son's William bible... Alexander Graham died May 26, 1876 Age 74 years, ?9 months & 27 days.
       Based on other bible info it should read 25 days. Another Adult male is living in household in 1830 census age 50-60, 1840 age 50-60. He appeared on the census of 1816 in Wayne, MS; .

Neil was give as part of family legend to be the father of Alexander. Alexander's bible has 2 corneulis with death date listed. Alexander does have a older male in household in 1830 and 1840. He was listed on tax list. in 1822 in Covington, MS. As of 1830, Alexander Graham (or the family of) lived at Rankin, MS.

        5. James2 RA(Y)BURN was born in 1777 in GA. He married Sarah (--?--) after 1793.
        He need more research. Zilpha Rayburn Price Cooksey (b1780), Burrell Rayburn (b1770-80) and Tabitha Raburn Parker (b1772)are sibling. Some other researcher give them a brother James. Need to confirm that other researcher did not jump to concluded that James Augusta Raburn (b1790), the son of Burrell Rayburn, as the brother of Zilpha . Tabitha Raburn married Aaron Parker they lived next door to James and Mark Raburn before 1830. This James is more fit the ages of Burrell , Tabitha and Zilpha who were born in 1770's.
       
        Henry and Vada Phillips who research this family in 1982 say... he was "born 1778. He was shown in the war of 1812 in Pike County. He was shown in Lawrence county in 1813. Lawrence County joins Pike. He was shown on the 1820 census for Covington County." "In 1860, James was reported in the home of Mark and Rhonda Rayborn and he was 82 years old. Mark was then 69. There was a 13 year difference in their ages. It appears that there was a close relationship and we tend to think they were first cousins."
       
       I am not sure they were correct on their assume that James was a son of John. I am not sure John was old enough to have son James born ~1777-78. Then James say in 1850 census he was born in GA, the 1860 census has both SC and GA, one is wrote over the other.
