DESCENDANTS OF CONRAD GRAVES AND MARY FRASER

OF PA & ROWAN CO., NC

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Conrad Graves (1) was born about 1745, possibly in Berks Co., PA, and died in 1822 in Rowan Co., NC.  He married Mary Fraser, daughter of Phillip Jacob Fraser, on 9 Jan. (or July) 1767 in Rowan Co., NC.  His will was dated 11 May 1820 and was probated in May 1822.  The children were named in his will.  The sons are in order of birth as are the daughters, but the relative order of sons and daughters is not known.  Mary died before 1820.

According to Mr. Murphy, Conrad Graves supposedly migrated from the Heidelburg School area of Bucks (or Berks?) Co. or Lancaster Co., PA to Rowan Co., NC as a young unmarried man.  He has found only two Conrads, both of whom fit the right time and place.  One Conrad was a son of Johan George Graff and Catharine nee Graf.  He was born in Lancaster on 20 Aug. 1744 and died 11 Aug. 1784.  He married Susanna Schwarz on 24 Jan. 1775 and had 3 sons, all who died young and unmarried, obviously not the right Conrad.  The other Conrad was John Cunradt Graff, a son of John Michael Graff of Lancaster Co., PA.  He was born 22 Sept. 1734 and was baptized 13 Oct. 1734.  His sponsors were John Cunradt Fey/Fry and his wife Anna Elizabetha.  He is the most likely candidate for Conrad Graves.

John Michael Graff was from Elsenz in the Northern Kraichgau.  He was called "the miller's servant" in the records there.  His wife was Catharina by whom he had an unknown child in 1728 and arrived in Pennsylvania on the Dragon in 1732.  He married a second time, wife's name unknown, and had John George, born 6 April 1739, and John Cunradt, both of whom were baptized at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster, PA.  There was also a daughter Maria Catarina born 9 Nov. 1742 who appears in the records of Muddy Creek Lutheran Church.  Since no further records of John Cunradt Graff have been found in PA, he may have joined the migration southward to Rowan Co., NC.

There was a German Lutheran Church in Davie Co. (formed from Rowan Co. in 1836) where Conrad settled.  It was called New Jerusalem, and nothing remains today but the cemetery.  A fraction of the records have made it through the years and contain some few references to the Graff family, mainly Conrad's sons John George and Phillip Jacob.

It seems very likely that this genealogy is part of genealogy 105 for John Graves (Johann Sebastian Graff).  (R‑1, R‑2)

Mary Jane Foster (60) was born about 1834 (according to the 1850 census) in Davie Co., NC.  She married Frederick (“Fred”) Cope, son of Henry Cope and Nancy ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 23 Dec. 1860 in Davie Co., NC.  He was born in Nov. 1835 in Davie Co., NC.  He was in the 1860 census for Liberty Twp., Davie Co., NC, living with his parents.  They were in the 1870 and 1880 censuses for Fulton Twp., Davie Co., NC.  They were in the 1900 census for Shady Grove Twp., Davie Co., NC, when 6 of her 7 children were still living.

The fact that the 1900 census listed Mary as 51, born in June 1848, and married 27 years (about 1873) raises the question of whether this was Frederick’s second wife.  Mary was listed as born about 1847 in 1880, and born about 1834 in 1870, so it seems very likely that Fred’s first wife died about 1873 or 1874, and he remarried very soon after that.  He was a farmer.  (R‑6)
