Jeremiah Edward Agee, Sr. married Elizabeth Moore, daughter of John Moore and Nancy Upton.
Jeremiah Edward and Elizabeth were born in Smith County, Tennessee. Their Family Bible was
found in William Solomon Agee's ("Uncle Bill's) trunk. He was one of their sons. The Bible was
a large leather bound edition published in 1871. The front and back covers are missing; as well as,
the first several pages of the Old Testament. All items on this page were found in the Bible
Jeremiah Agee and Elizabeth his wife was married Dec. 21st, 1843.
Elizabeth Agee died Nov. 24, 1889
Aged 64 yr. 1 mo. 19 da.
Jeremiah Agee died Jan. 12, 1892

In the Bible was a lock of hair tied with a narrow piece of fabric. We believe that this
is a lock of Elizabeth Moore Agee's hair. Also, between the pages was a 4-leaf clover.
