Rev. James Robinson Graves (1820-1893), b. in Vermont; became a teacher and pastor of a Baptist church in Nashville, Tenn., in 1845, and in 1848 founded the “Southwest Publishing House” in that city. Graves was a leading advocate of “Landmarkism.” Landmarkers are distinguished by the following principles: Baptist churches are the only true churches; church succession; only immersion in a Baptist church is valid baptism; only Baptist ministers are valid ministers; and adherence to strict autonomy of the local church.
