CHILDREN OF RODHAM GRAVES (1) AND MARIANN MARQUESS

Sidney Graves (2) was born about 1801 in VA, and died 26 Oct. 1879 in Henry Co., IN.  He married Margaret Dipboye, daughter of Abraham Dipboye and Rose Anna Goodyear.  She was born 17 Dec. 1813 in PA, and died 2 Sept. 1898 in Henry Co., IN.  They were both buried in Painter Cem., Fall Creek Twp., Henry Co., IN.  They were in the 1850, 1860, and 1870 censuses for Fall Creek Twp., Henry Co., IN.  Their first 9 children were living with them in 1850, and their last 6 children were living with them in 1860.  He was a farmer.  Their first 3 children were born in VA, and all the others in Henry Co., IN.

From The Compendium of Biography, Henry County, Indiana, 1920: “The parents of Joseph Graves, Sidney and Margaret (Dipboye) Graves, were respectively natives of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and were married in the latter state. About 1834 they came to Indiana and settled on the farm now owned by their son Joseph, but which was without any special improvements save a small log cabin and a few acres denuded of their forest growth, but of which Sidney later put sixty acres under cultivation. On this farm the parents lived until 1868 and then retired to Middletown, where the father died in his seventy-ninth year, and the mother then made her home with her children, spending her latest years at the home of her son Joseph on the old homestead, dying at the age of eighty-two years, eighteen years after the death of her husband. Their family comprised twelve children, of whom ten attained mature years, the eldest dying in childhood and the youngest when sixteen. Of those who grew to maturity, George H. died in Delaware County; two reside in Henry County, Joseph, of this notice, and Lizzie, wife of William Leiphardt, of the Middletown woolen factory.”  (R‑2)
