DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM GRAVES AND ELIZABETH ------

OF VA, NC, TN & KY

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

William Graves (1) may have been born about 1755 (based on the dates of birth of his children), probably in southern Virginia, is said to have lived in Caswell Co., NC, and may have died in 1822 in Allen Co., KY.  (Although the story of his place of birth later in this paragraph and the claim of his living in Caswell Co., NC would imply that he was related to the Graves family known to have lived in Caswell Co., NC, Y-DNA testing proves that he does not share a common Graves ancestor with that family, which was genealogy 270.  Perhaps he did live there, but only for a short time while migrating from Virginia to KY.)  It has been claimed that William was born about 1751 in Spotsylvania Co., VA, son of Solomon Graves, son of Thomas Graves and Ann Davenport of genealogy 270.  However, the William Graves who was a son of that Solomon Graves married Rebecca and then Susanna, not Elizabeth ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  Y-DNA testing has not shown a strong connection to any Graves family before 1755.  It is possible that this family is descended from an earlier Graves family through a female Graves ancestor, or that the Graves progenitor of this family changed his surname to Graves from another surname, or that descendants of an earlier ancestral family have not yet been DNA tested, or that there are no direct-line male Graves descendants of an earlier Graves ancestor.  However, if either of the first two possibilities were true, male descendants should match some other surname, and that has not yet been found to be the case.

An interesting posting on RootsWeb titled “Rippy-Black Family in 1800”, submitted by Patricia Ann Rippy Hair, 1999, follows. Patricia Hair wrote: “I have a copy of a Bible Record from the Rippy-Black Bible of a cousin in Illinois. The following information was in the Bible Record.”  If William Graves was on this wagon train, that would provide a clue to his previous location in southern Virginia.  It is interesting to note that William’s son Frederick, who married Christina Black, lived and died just north of Sugar Grove, Sumner Co., TN, in Allen Co., KY.  (Sugar Grove is about 16 miles south of Butlersville, Allen Co., KY.)

 

About 1798 a wagon train had started from southern Virgina. Some of the families were: Dr. John Davis, Maggart, Rippy, Black, Bell, Durham, Troutt, Turner, Norris, Caldwell, Carter, Graves, Edmunds, Martin, Coyner, Morris and Bell.

This group settled around Sugar Grove, a small settlement along Trammel Pike, just south of the Kentucky border and north of Westmoreland, Tennessee. This region was mostly covered with a growth of large sugar maples, which proved to be a major asset to the community.

Among these early settlers was a young widow named Mary Black. She had lost her husband, John Black, in a hunting accident in Virginia. Another of this group was the family of Jesse Rippy. Jessie and his wife, before her death, had a daughter, Adeline, who died young, and four boys: Elvis, James, Wylie and Anderson.

Mary Black (1797-1876) had a son, George (1817-1867) and a daughter Elizabeth (1818- ). She married Isaac Charleton and they came to near Cartter, Illinois. Mary and Jessie were married about 1799 or 1800. Into this marriage were born two daughters, Eliza and Linda. Elvis Rippy married Linda and Anderson Rippy married Eliza Black.

Anderson and Eliza built their home just west of Sugar Grove about one-half mile north of Jessie and Mary's home. Their children were Adeline (who died young), George, Jerry, Morgan, James, Ike, and Henry. All of these boys, except Ike and Henry, came to Illinois around 1900. George married Charity Tennessee Maggart. They had children Lydia; Cleveland and Harrison. Jerry married Mary Elizabeth Taggart (a half sister to George's wife), and James married Eliza Ann Davis, the daughter of Sidney and Mary Black Davis. George's wife was known as "Tenny", Jerry's wife as "Betty". Jerry and Betty's children were Wylie, who married Edna Brown, Elbert, who married Jessie Laudermilk, Walter, who married Ora Black, daughter of Tom and Nettie Black, and a daughter, Cora Bell who married Earnest Huston.

“This is all that could be read of the Bible record.”

 

William Graves married Elizabeth ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  Her name may have been Elizabeth Love.  She was born in SC, and may have died in 1825 in Allen Co., KY.  They moved to TN from NC sometime between 1790 and 1809.

Some of the more unusual names in this part of the family are Pelly (for a boy), Elbridge, Anderson, and Michael (always with the initial J. for the middle name).

It has also been suggested that this William Graves is the same as the one in genealogy 37.  That does not look likely.

There are still many Graves from this family in Sumner Co., TN, and possibly in Indianapolis, IN.  (R‑1, R‑2)

Jacob Graves (2) was born about 1780 in NC or VA[1], and died 29 Feb. 1840 in Sumner Co., TN.  His estate was settled in 1842 in Sumner Co.  He married Catherine (or Kathleen) (“Caty”) Black[2], daughter of Michael Black, on 17 April 1809[3] in Sumner Co., TN.  She was born about 1784 in NC, and was buried in Graves Cem., Sumner Co., TN.  Caty stated in an application for a land grant for Jacob's service in the War of 1812 that she had 11 or 12 children but couldn't remember which, as she was so old.  Jacob lived in Sumner Co., TN, and owned property adjoining that of his brother William Graves in Sumner Co.  Their children were born in Sumner Co.  (R‑3, R‑6)

William Graves (3) was born 1 Oct. 1784 (or about 1790) in Caswell Co., NC (or VA), died 27 June 1860 in Sumner Co., Tenn., and was probably buried in Clark-Mandrell Cem.  He was a private in the War of 1812, and fought in the Battle of New Orleans.  He married Catherine ("Caty") Richmond, daughter of George Richmond, on 9 April 1811 in Sumner Co., Tenn.  She was born about 1787 in Caswell Co., N.C., died after 1860, and was also buried in Clark-Mandrell Cem.  This family was recorded on the 1850 census in District 15, Sumner Co., TN; their children were born in TN.  William and Catherine along with daughter Milly were recorded on the 1860 census in District 15, Sumner Co., TN, post office Gallatin.

Previously included in the list of children of William and Catherine was William D. Graves, b.c. 1827, m. Eliza Roberts.  However, this person, whose full name was William Dennis Graves, was a son of William Graves and Nancy Lawson, from an entirely different family.

It appears that all their children were born in Sumner Co., TN.  (R‑1, R‑2, R‑6)

They were in the 1850 census for District 15, Sumner Co., TN, page 193, dwelling 929, with William, 38, Adaline, 32, Calvin, 10, Granville, 8, Mary A., 4, and Lydia, 3.  The 1860 census for District 15, Sumner Co., TN, Gallatin P.O., page 288, dwelling 1022, listed William, 40, Adaline, 39, Seburn, 19, Granville, 18, Mary A., 14, Liddy, 14, Mary F., 12, Lina, 8, Calvin, 6, Cyrus, 4, Wiseman, 1.  The 1870 census for District 15, Sumner Co., TN, Richland Station P.O., dwelling 205, page 794, listed William, 60, Adline, 45, Lyddy, 21, Signa, 19, Calvin, 17, S.

Serelda Graves, born about 1850, who married Patton Graves (#92), was given as a daughter of William and Adaline by one source.  However, this is not supported by census data, and it is clear that she was a daughter of Allen Graves and Keziah Ann Clark.  (R‑6, R‑7)

CHILDREN OR FREDERICK GRAVES (4) AND CRISTENA BLACK

David Graves (32) was born about 1815[11] in NC, and died in 1857.  He married Mary (“Polly”) Ann Durham, daughter of James Durham and Lydia Gillespie, in 1838 in Sumner Co., TN.  She was born about 1823 in Sumner Co., TN, and died 20 April 1907 in Texola, Beckham Co., OK.

They were in the 1850 census for Sumner Co., TN, 16th district, page 297, house 20, with children James, 8, Louisa, 6, Nancy, 3, and Enie, 6/12.  Her parents, with 4 of their children, were listed on the same page in house 22.  The census was taken on Oct. 8, 1850.  They may have lived on the James Durham farm their entire married lives.  (R‑32)

James Graves (33) was born about 1818 in KY, and died before 1860 (probably in 1858) in Allen Co., KY.  He married Mary Ann Harrison on 12 March 1840 in Sugar Grove, Sumner Co., TN.  She was born about 1821-1823 in KY.  Their marriage record shows that the bondsmen were James and his brother David.  James and Mary Ann were in the 1850 census for Allen Co., KY.  All their children were born in Allen Co., KY.

It seems strange that the name attributed to the wife of James Graves is the same as that of his brother Anderson,  Could there be an error with one of the names?

Mary was in the 1860 census for Butlersville, Allen Co., KY, with 8 children (all of her 11 children except for the first two and S. M.).  She was in the 1870 census for Precinct 2, Allen Co., KY, Butlersville P.O., page 202, dwelling 332, with her 2 youngest children.  (R‑6)

Anderson Andrew Graves (35) was born 1822-1823 in Allen Co., KY[12].  He first married Mary A. Elizabeth Harrison on 7 May 1843 in Sumner Co., TN.  She was born about 1827 in KY, and died before 1870 (probably about 1869) in Allen Co., KY.  He married second Henrietta E. Wadkins about 1870-1873.  (According to R‑37, she was Henrietta Elizabeth Dowell, born Aug. 1844 in Allen Co., KY, died 23 June 1900, daughter of William L. Dowell and Susan Amanda Williams.)  All of Anderson's children were born in Allen Co., KY.

They were in the 1860 census for New Roe, Allen Co., KY, dwelling 342, with Anderson, 37, Elizabeth, 33, L. G., 16, S. F., 14, T. O., 12, William, 11, Elizabeth, 4, Henrietta, 7, M. J., 5, J. M., 3, and Richard, 1.  The 1870 census for Precinct 2, Allen Co., KY, Butlersville P.O., page 202, dwelling 329, listed Anderson, 48, Henrietta, 18, Mary J., 15, James M., 13, Richard C., 11, Sarah E., 9, John D., 7, Elvina, 4, and Elbridge, 2.  The 1880 census for Butlersville, Allen Co., KY, page 184D, listed Anderson, 58, Henretie, 37, Johny D., 15, Thomas B., 14, Elviry, 13, Wesley, 19, Elbridge, 9, Robert B., 7, Mandy F., 6, Rufus R., 4, and Lucy A.  It isn’t known why Thomas and Wesley were in the 1880 census but not in the 1870 census, and it is also unusual to have another child named Thomas in the same family.  (R‑19, R‑37)

(according to Allen Co., Ky. Vital Statistics, 1852-1862 by Mary M. Rabold and Elizabeth M. Price, 1972, when he married for the second time), although his pension record dated 1905 stated he was born in Lincoln Co., Tenn.  He died 21 Jan. 1905 at home near Egan, Johnson Co., Texas, and was buried in Union Hill Cem., Johnson Co.  He secondly married Eliza Ann Harris, and had 10 more children.  (R‑8)

Henry J.

A, 52nd Kentucky Mounted Infantry Volunteers.  He enlisted in Scottsville, KY, was mustered in Oct. 16, 1863, and was honorably discharged Jan. 18, 1865 in Bowling Green, KY.  All their children were born in Allen Co., KY.

They were in the 1860 census for New Roe, Allen Co., KY, dwelling 344, with Henry, 32, Melvina, 25, P.J., 12, T.F., 11, M.E., 7, Sarah, 5, and M.J., 3, all born in KY.  They were in the 1870 census for Precinct 2, Allen Co., KY, Butlersville P.O., page 202, dwelling 333, with Henry, 45, Melvina, 40, Armenia E., 17, Sarah R.

William Graves (38) was born about 1828 in Allen Co., KY.  He first married S. J. ‑‑‑‑‑‑ on 8 April 1852 in Sumner Co., TN.  He married second Nancy Ogles on 8 April 1852 in Sumner Co., TN (either this date or the date of the first marriage is wrong.).  She was born about 1833 and died 1861-1869, both in Allen Co., KY.

It has been claimed that he married third Elizabeth S. Lamb, daughter of ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Lamb and Perlina ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 23 April 1869, and that they had 4 children: Lassie A. Graves, b. April 1870, Martha O. Graves, b.c. 1871, William W. Graves, b.c. 1873, and Robert M. Graves, b.c. 1876.  However, the census record does not support this.  The 1870 census lists William Graves, father of the first child as being age 21, a match with the son of Anderson Andrew Graves, brother of this William.  Also, this William was still married to Nancy in 1880, not to Elizabeth.

The 1860 census for Butlersville, Allen Co., KY, dwelling 205, lists William, 32, Nancy, 23, M.F., 6, and Lucinda, 1.  The 1870 census for District 6, Allen Co., KY, Scottsville P.O., page 256, dwelling 112, lists William, 39, Nancy, 33, Mary F., 16, Henry J., 7, George A. M., 5, Albert F., 2, and Polley S., 7/12.  The 1880 census for District 6, New Roe, Allen Co., KY, page 254C, lists William, 49, wife Nancy, 43, and children George M., 15, Albert F., 13, Pelly S., 11, Martha J., 9, William W., 7, and Robert M., 4.  All the children were born in KY, at least the first 3 in Allen Co., KY.  He was a farmer.  (R‑6)

Henrietta E. Graves (230) was born about 1852 (probably 25 Dec. 1852) and died 21 June 1921, both in Allen Co., KY.  Regarding her date of birth, family records give 25 Dec. 1856, but the 1860 census gives about 1853 and the 1870 census gives about 1852, so it is likely that she adjusted the date to seem younger.  She married William F. Fowler on 11 Jan. 1872 in Sumner Co., TN.  He was born about 1854-58 in TN, and died in 1915 in Allen Co., KY.  All their children were born in KY, probably all in Allen Co.  (R‑37)

It was previously thought that Bourbon Oscar Graves was a grandson of Allendon Graves (#40) by an unknown son who was born about 1852.  Bourbon’s descendants said that Bouron never talked about his parents because they were killed when he was about 4 years old.  A daughter said that when the parents died in Allen Co., KY, Bourbon was taken in by his uncle, whom they always said was Younger Graves.  When Younger insisted that his two sons become doctors, he also wanted this for Bourbon.  However, Bourbon ran away and lived with others in the community.  He is listed in the 1900 census as living with a Harris family in New Roe, Allen Co.  In that scenario, it was interesting and unusual that Bourbon’s grandparents and his parents both appear to have died when their children were very young.  However, it is now clear that at least parts of that family story aren’t quite correct.  (R‑29)

Michael (or Marvin) Jackson ("Jack") Graves (255) was born 20 June 1857 (or 2 Nov. 1854) in Allen Co., KY, and died 26 May 1916 in Peaster (or Weatherford), Parker Co., Texas.  It is said that he was swindled out of his land, causing him to commit suicide by hanging.  He was buried 27 May 1916 in Zion Hill Cem., Weatherford.  (His death certificate gave his date of death and gave his age as 62, which confirms his date of birth as 1854; the date of birth in the family Bible seemed to be 1864, but was very difficult to read.)

He was a farmer.  He married Armanda Reumina Logan, daughter of Robert Logan and Nancy Taylor, 25 Dec. 1884 in Sumner Co., TN.  She was born 18 Sept. 1868 in Butlersville, Allen Co., KY, and died Monday, 2 Nov. 1942 at age 71 in Yuma, Yuma Co., Arizona, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Bert Snailum.  Her body was shipped to Weatherford, Texas, where she was buried 2 p.m., Friday, 6 Nov. 1942, in Zion Hill Cem.

Their first 3 children were born in KY, near Bowling Green according to family stories, and the last 3 in Weatherford, Texas.  The family moved to Texas in about 1895-1896 because of the Civil War.  The Graves family lived "north of the Ohio River" and the Logan family lived "south of the Ohio River" and after the war they were never very friendly, so that is supposedly why they moved to Texas.

Jack and Armanda settled in the Grindstone and Zion Hill Community area.  Their last three children were born while they were living in the Zion Hill Community. The last son died at 3 days of age and was buried in Zion Hill Cem. near his parents.  Marvin Jack was a farmer and hard times took their toll on him.  He hung himself because of ill health.  His death certificate states that he was a son of Henry Graves and a Miss White.  (R‑6, R‑18)

[3] R-3 gives the marriage date as 17 April and R-6 gives it as 17 Nov.

[4] His birth date is based on an age of 72 in the 1860 census (b.c. 1788) and an age of 78 in the 1870 census (b.c. 1792).

[10] He was listed in the 1870 census as age 4, born about 1866.

[11] Even though the 1850 census lists David Graves as born about 1821, the 1830 and 1840 censuses support a birth date of about 1815.
