201 Here is the story I heard on how Aunt Euchia got her name. Back when her father, William, was in the civil war at one time he was about dead for some reason. I don't know if he was sick, starving or wounded but there was an Indian named Euchia that helped and nursed him back to health. William then named his daughter after the Indian. Edwards, Euchia (I347)

James Monroe Graves (5) was born 20 (or 24) Jan. 1838 in Culloden, Monroe Co., GA, and died 24 Jan. 1904 (Jewell Goodrich says 1905) in TX.

He married Nancy ("Nannie") A. Hortman, daughter of Adam Henry Hortman and Sarah Miller, on 15 Oct. 1871 in Knoxville, Crawford Co., GA. She was born 24 May 1851 in Knoxville, GA, and died 20 Sept. 1909 in TX. They were both buried in Wood Cem., Gladewater, Upshur Co., TX. He was a farmer. All their children were named for Civil War generals.

There is a family story that James was given a female slave for his birthday by his grandfather Tabor. However, he did not accept her as he did not approve of slavery, he did not want to break up the slave's family, and he was too poor to keep a slave anyway. The war soon came and slavery was ended. Descendants of this female slave live in Knoxville, GA, and one of them teaches school there. (R-1)

She met the love of her life, James H. Shehee; they married, and moved to Middle Georgia to raise their family. "Grandma" as she was affectionately known, dearly loved her family. She never complained and never asked for anything from anyone. She only wanted to show her love and devotion to all through her kindness and awesome spirit. Grandma loved being a mother and a grandmother, and was known to many as their "best friend". As secrets were told, her friends and family felt as if they were putting them in a safe deposit box, and Grandma has taken all of them with her to Heaven. Throughout her life, she loved to cook and enjoyed a dress. For years, she only wore dresses. In fact, she wore her first pair of pants when she was 51 years old. Grandma spent many hours fishing and always did everything she could to make a warm and loving home for her family. She loved country music and would watch the music videos over and over. She even had her husband take her to Ernest Tubb's funeral in Nashville in 1984. She attended many concerts with her children and grandchildren and went to every concert at the Georgia National Fair for the first eight years. As her health declined, she chose to enjoy her music at home with her family. What a wonderful woman Mrs. Shehee was. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 66 years, James H. Shehee; her son, Allen Shehee; a brother, Wilbur Taylor; and her sister, Inez Pinegar. -The legacies she leaves behind are her son, Rodney Shehee (Teresa) of Fort Valley; her daughter-in-law, Stacey Deese of Perry; her brothers, Lester Taylor (Julia) of Phoenix City, AL, and Aubrey Taylor of Perry; her grandchildren, Tammy Knowland, Jimmy Shehee (Stacy), Jessica Shehee, Uriah Shehee, and Maranda Shehee; ten great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and several nieces and nephews.
