Z.B. Graves apparently underwent some sort of mental breakdown in Meridian MS, traveled to AL where Jerry went to pick up Ida, and a few weeks later moved on to Texas where he was committed to the state asylum.  This article documents these events as well as the death of Ida’s oldest son after being brought from AL to Athens.
