GENERATION 4

 

CHILDREN OF JOHN GREAVES (9)

Thomas Graves (29) was born 6 June 1605 at Ratcliff, England, near London (or at Stepney, England[1]), was baptized 16 June 1605 at Stepney, part of the city of London, and died 31 July 1653 (old style calendar, 31st day, 5th month, 1653) in a sea battle with the Dutch in the English Channel.  (A number of sources say he died in Charlestown, MA, but this definitely appears incorrect; e.g., Tracy Genealogy[2], p. 177, and NEHGS Register[3].)  His will was dated 13 June 1652 and probated 1 Oct. 1653.

Thomas Graves sprang from a prominent shipbuilding and mariner family of London, and came to America as early as 1628.  He was a skillful shipmaster, and was mate of the Talbot, in which Higginson came to Salem, Mass. in 1629. He was mate of the Arabella, master of the Plantation in 1630, master of the Plough in 1631, of the Whale in 1632, of the Reformation and Elizabeth Bonadventura in 1633 and 1634, and of the James in 1635.  He was master of the first American built ship, the Tryall, on her second voyage in June 1643, and followed the sea more or less until his death.  He brought his family (consisting of his wife and two children) to America about 1636 or 1637 and settled in Charlestown, Mass., probably at the same time that his wife's mother came.

He married Katherine (or Katharine or Catharine) Gray before 1635 (probably by 1630) in England.  She was born about 1606 at Harwich, England, died 21 Feb. 1682 (old style calendar, 21, 12, 1681), and was buried 23 Feb. 1681/2. [4]  She was a daughter of Thomas Gray and Katherine Myles (daughter and co-heir of Robert Myles, of Sutton, in County Suffolk).  Thomas Gray died in 1607, and his widow married on 23 Dec. 1610 at Harwick, England, Rowland Coytemore, of Wapping (next to London, in Middlesex), a widower, who died in 1626; she came to New England in 1636 or 1637 and settled in Charlestown, Mass.; was admitted to the church in 1638, and died 28 Nov. 1659.  Her will, dated 28 or 30 April 1658 named 14 grandchildren, including the 5 children of her daughter Katherine. [5]  An article in the NEHGS Register[6] gives much more information on the Myles family, and also says that Katherine (Myles) Gray had 6 children.  (See Appendix of this book for more information.)

Katherine Coytemore, mother of Thomas Graves' wife, with her son Thomas and wife and her daughter Elizabeth, also came to America, probably at the same time as the family of Thomas Graves.  The son, Thomas Coytemore, was a mariner and commanded the Tryall on her first trip.  He was lost on the coast of Spain 27 Dec. 1644, and his widow Martha, daughter of Captain William Rainsborough, a mariner of England, married 4 Dec. 1647 at Boston as her second husband Governor John Withrop who died 26 March 1649.  She married thirdly John Coggan of Boston on 10 March 1652.

Thomas Graves was admitted to the First Church, Charlestown, with his wife, 7 Oct. 1639, and was made freeman at general court, Boston, on 13 May 1640.  He became possessed of a large amount of land in Charlestown and Woburn.  (Woburn is next to and just south of Wilmington.)  He continued to follow the sea, and while in command of a merchantman captured a Dutch "man-of-war" vessel in the British Channel, for which gallant act he was appointed by Parliament captain of the frigate President in the Royal Navy on 30 May 1652.  The following year he was appointed rear admiral of the White, and on board the St. Andrew (with 360 men and 56 guns)[7] he participated in the naval battles with the Dutch, and was killed 31 July 1653.[8][9]  His body was landed from the fleet in Aldborough Bay, Co. Suffolk, England, 8 Aug. 1653, and buried the same day, his wife's family being from that county.  Parliament granted his family 1000 pounds.  His will dated 13 June 1652, deposited with his brother Abraham in England, was forwarded to America.  It was presented for probate by his widow and proved on the first of the tenth month of 1653 (old style calendar, 1 Dec. 1653), several months after his death.

Thomas is said to have been commissioned Rear Admiral in the British Navy by Oliver Cromwell, after the overthrow of King Charles I.  Previous to that event he had been in America and laid plans for his future abode here, by securing, for some service rendered the colony, a grant of 250 acres of land located in that part of what was then Charlestown, now near Wilmington, called the "land of nod".  (This seems strange, since Wilmington is nowhere near present day Charlestown.  It is much farther north of Boston, next to Billerica.)  For some years he commanded a vessel running between Boston and the ports of the mother country.  By this means he kept up his acquaintance with men and affairs in England.  He was on familiar terms with the principal men of the Mass. Colony, and was held by them in high esteem, being pronounced by Gov. Winthrop after his death in 1653, "an able and godly man".  Winthrop wrote his name Greaves.

Will of Thomas Graves of Charlestown: This my last will and testament is that I do bequeath unto my beloved wife Katharine Graves, my now dwelling house scittuate in Charlestowne in New England for the terme of her life, and also the one-third part of all my goods, shiping & moneys and plate, I give and bequeath unto my daughter Rebecca[10] five pound, & to her child three pound, I do bequeath unto my sonne John my house scittuate in Limehouse neere Dickes shoare, he paying One hundred Pound, to be payd the one third part of it to his mother my beloved wife, the other two thirds to be divided unto my sonne Thomas, Nathaniel, Susanna & Joseph, my will is that my Land at Oburne in New England, and Land in Charlestowne neck, and what goods, household stuffe, chipping, plate or moneys I have be all vallued, with one hundred Pound, I Appoynt my sonne John to pay of all with my will is that my wife shall have the one third part of, And the other two thirds to be Equally divided between my sonne Thomas, Nathaniel, Susanna & Joseph, but my desire is, that if the house at Limehouse which I do bequeath unto my sonne John he paying one hundred pound be not vallued to be worth as much as double what wilbe of my estate dividable to my sonne Thomas, Nathaniel, Susanna or Joseph, that then my sonne John shall pay lesse to be dividable as above mentioned, for my desire is that my son John should have twice as much as the rest of my children.

Further I do bequeath unto my sonne Thomas after his mother's decease, my now dwelling house, with all the garden & orchard there unto belonging, which is scittuate in Charlestowne in New England, provided that my sonne Thomas pay unto his sister Rebecca ten pound, Nathaniell Ten pound, Susanna ten pound, Joseph Ten pound.  I do Appoynt my beloved wife and my sonne John to be my Executors and do appoint them to pay to the church at Charlestowne forty shillings And I do intreate my Brother Nowell & my Brother Lindes of Charlestown to be overseers of my will, and do give to them Twenty shillings apeece, witnes my hand this 13th of June 1652.

                                            Thomas Graves

This last will of me Thomas Graves being left by himselfe sealed up, and delivered to his Brother Abraham Graves and presented by his relict widow before the Deputy Governer, and the rest of the magistrates, it was by them allowed & Approved the first of the 10th month 1653.

                                            Thomas Danforth, Recorder

Entred & Recorded 25 10 mo. 1655.                      Thomas Danforth, Recorder.

 

Rear Admiral Thomas Graves has sometimes been confused with the engineer of the same name.  Thomas Graves, the engineer was of Gravesend, County of Kent, England, signed a contract with the Massachusetts Bay Company in March 1629, arrived in New England in July 1629, and laid out Charlestown.  Thomas Graves, the engineer, was clearly not the same as Rear Admiral Thomas Graves.  In 1629 the engineer already had an impressive reputation for engineering, had traveled extensively, and had a wife and five children.  He was older than the 24 years of age that the Rear Admiral was at that time.  In addition, the signature of the Rear Admiral from his will, and that of the engineer from his contract, as shown below, are different (from History of Charlestown, page 140, by.Richard Frothingham).

CHILDREN OF THOMAS GRAVES (29) AND KATHARINE GRAY

Capt. John Graves (43) was born about 1630 in England.  He did not go to America with his father, but was left in England with relatives.  He lived at Ham, near London.  He married Dorcas Pett.  (R‑70)

Rebecca Graves (45) was born about 1631 in England, and died 8 Oct. 1664 in Chelmsford, MA.  (According to one source, Rebecca was born about 1640 in Charlestown, Mass Bay Colony, but that does not seem possible, based on the date of her marriage and the birth dates of her children.)

She married Samuel Adams in 1651 as his second wife. She was a cousin of his first wife, as discussed below. (According to some sources, Rebecca was his first wife; for instance, Charlestown Genealogies and Estates, p. 4, section on Samuel Adams.)  He was born about 1617, probably in Barton, St. David, England, emigrated to New England with his parents in 1638 and located with them in Braintree, MA, and died 24 Jan. 1688/89 (gravestone in Charlestown, but record in Chelmsford, MA).

Rebecca was admitted to the First Church, Charlestown, MA, 5 July 1648.  She is said to have been the mother of 11 children, although only 8 are listed below.  Perhaps another 3 died young.

Samuel Adams was a brother of Joseph Adams, and a son of Henry Adams and Edith Squire of Braintree, MA.  Samuel was a great-grandfather of John Adams, second president of the U.S.  Samuel first married Mary Eglesfield, daughter of Emanuel Eglesfield and Susanna Gray of London, about 1646.  Her mother, Susanna Gray, was baptized at Harwich, England, 31 Jan. 1592/3, daughter of Thomas Gray and Katherine Miles, and sister of Parnel Gray (born about 1601), wife of Hon. Increase Nowell, and also sister of Katherine Gray, wife of Capt. Thomas Graves, both of Charlestown, MA.  She emigrated to New England with her mother's relatives and located with them in Charlestown, MA, where she joined the church 7 Oct. 1639.  She had 1 child and died in 1650.

After Rebecca died, Samuel married on 7 May 1668 Esther Sparkhawk, as his third wife.  She was the mother of 4 children, including John Adams' grandfather.  (See Adams and Holmes genealogies.)

The first mention of Samuel Adams is his admission as a freeman of the Massachusetts Colony, 10 May 1643, and the next as one of the 33 Braintree petitioners concerning a land grant in Oct. 1645.  Previous to 1646 he had conveyed a plot of land to his father whose will directed that Samuel should be paid for it.  During the next few years he lived in Charlestown and Concord, MA, and acquired land in Concord.  On 3 Aug. 1654, Samuel Adams of Charlestown conveyed to Richard Temple of same a tract of land in Concord.  Soon afterwards he joined his brother Thomas Adams in Chelmsford where he erected mills in the part of Chelmsford now Lowell, MA, and was appointed captain of the Chelmsford military company.

Mary (or Marah) Adams (77) was born 8 Sept. 1664 in Chelmsford, MA, and died 21 Dec. 1744.  She married Samuel Webb of Braintree, MA, son of Christopher Webb and Hannah Scott, on 16 Dec. 1686.  He was born 6 Aug. 1660 and died 20 Feb. 1739.

Several books have stated that the Mary Adams who married Samuel Webb was a daughter of Joseph and Abigail Adams, rather than a daughter of Samuel Adams and Rebecca Graves.  (See Webb Genealogy; The Giles Memorial by John Adams Vinton, p. 502; and one Adams genealogy.)  However, the following discussion shows that is not correct, and the Mary Adams who married Samuel Webb was definitely a daughter of Rebecca Graves.

New England Marriages Prior to 1700 by Clarence Almon Torrey, p. 789: "Webb, Samuel, living 23 Oct. 1694, 1739, Windham, CT, and Mary Adams (b. 1668-d. 1744), dau. Samuel; 16 Dec. 1686; Chelmsford/Braintree/Windham, CT."

Colonial Families of the United States of America, edited by George Norbury Mackenzie: "Samuel Webb, b. in Braintree, Mass., 6 Aug. 1660; d. in Windham, Conn. in 1739; m. 16 Dec. 1686, Mary Adams, who was b. at Chelmsford, Mass. 9th Oct. 1663 and d. 21st Dec. 1744, dau. of Capt. Samuel Adams."

Vital Records of Chelmsford, Mass. to 1850: "Mary Adams and Samuel Webb of Braintree, Dec. 16, 1686."

The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown, Mass., 1629-1818, by Thomas Bellows Wyman, p. 4, under Capt. Samuel Adams, lists his children including Mary, m. Samuel Webb.

A certified copy of a birth certificate for Mary Adams, daughter of Joseph and Abigail Adams, from the Commonwealth of Mass., Town of Braintree, shows that this Mary Adams was born 25 Feb. 1667.  All references to the Mary Adams who married Samuel Webb list her birth date as 1663-4.

The Braintree town records list the marriage of Mary Adams and Samuel Webb on Dec. 16, 1686, both under Webb and Adams, by Mr. Clark.  In the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, vol. 1, pp. 35, 36, The Rev. Thomas Clark is listed as the minister in Chelmsford for 27 years, having been ordained in 1677.

The first child of Samuel Webb and Mary Adams was named Rebecca.  Mary Adams of Chelmsford was the child of Rebecca Graves and Samuel Adams, and it is likely that the first child was named after her.

Although the marriage is recorded in Braintree as well as in Chelmsford, that is where Mary Adams lived after their marriage in Chelmsford, so it is reasonable that it would be recorded in both towns.  If Samuel Webb had married Mary Adams of Braintree, there would be no reason to record the marriage in Chelmsford where neither of them had lived.

In conclusion, it is apparent that the Mary Adams who married Samuel Webb was a daughter of Rebecca Graves and Samuel Adams.  (R‑34, R‑208)

CHILDREN OF THOMAS GRAVES (46)

Hon. Thomas Graves (79) was born 28 Sept. 1683 in Charlestown, Mass., and was baptized there in the First Church 30 Sept. 1683.  He graduated from Harvard College in the class of 1703.  He first married Sybil Avery, daughter of Dr. Jonathan Avery and Sybil Sparhawk, on 9 Sept. 1708.  She was born 11 Aug. 1683, and died 1 Nov. 1721 of smallpox.

He secondly married Ann Antram on 23 June 1728.  She was the widow of Edward Watts who had inherited the Governor Bellingham estate.

Previous to the marriage, Thomas Graves had purchased for 3000 pounds the 19/30 interest of Ann Watts in the estate and in contemplation of marriage had made an indenture under date of June 21 1728 by which it was provided that they should have the mutual use of the property during their lives and on their deaths one half interest in same should go to the respective heirs of each.  The Bellingham property was divided by a tri-party agreement made June 25, 1728 by Thomas Graves and Ann Watts.  Daniel and Samuel Watts, by which what was afterwards known as the "Cary Farm" at Chelsea, Mass. was allotted to Thomas and Ann and descended to the daughter of Thomas Graves, Katharine, wife of Hon. James Russell and Margaret, wife of Capt. Samuel Cary.  It eventually became the sole property of the latter.

Ann (Watts) Graves died 23 March 1738 at 49 years of age, and was buried in Christ Church Rectory.

Thomas Graves thirdly married Phebe Vassal on 11 Feb. 1739 in Braintree, Mass.  She was born 1695, daughter of Samuel Penhallow and Mary Cutt, and granddaughter of Governor John Cutt of New Hampshire.  Her first husband had been Capt. Thomas Gross of Boston.  For her second husband she married Leonard Vassal, son of John Vassal and Ann Lewis, on 10 Oct. 1734.  He was born 1678 in Jamaica, and died 20 June 1737.  After the death of Thomas Graves she married as her fourth husband Francis Boland on 21 March 1749/50.  She survived him, and died 3 April 1775, aged 80 years.

The Hon. Thomas Graves followed in the footsteps of his distinguished father.  The inscription on his tombstone in the Old Phipps Street burying ground reads, "Thomas Greaves/Here lyes interrd the body of/Hon'ble Thomas Greaves Esq./Who departed this life in his sleep/on the 19 of June 1747 Atatis 63./He was a beloved physician, an upright judge/and a wise and good man./XC Psalms 10th, 'It is soon cut off and wee fly away.'"  On his tombstone is cut the Graves coat of arms.  He died in his sleep on 19 June 1747 at Charlestown, aged 63 years. Funeral services were held on 28 June 1747 in Christ Church in Boston, Mass.  Rev. Timothy Cutler, D.D., one of the most influential and learned of the Episcopal Clergy in the Colony, delivered the sermon from Matthew 25:21.  "His Lord said unto him, Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the Joy of the Lord." Among other things said in this memorable sermon which was printed was, "Descent from honorable progenitors casts a very desirable lustre on a man when seconded by his personal worth, as was the case of the deceased.  As a physician he was singularly valued and respected by his brethren in the practice as well as by all that could hope to share in the benefit of his skill.  His strong abilities improved by a liberal education, his general knowledge, his wisdom and penetration, his sound judgment of men and things, his great discretion in affairs, his steadiness and integrity of mind, without any seeking of his, recommended him to many employments of trust and places of honor.  It was to his honor that in all our Courts General, Superior, and Inferior, nothing weak, rash, willful, unrighteous came from him. His private life he adorned with everything exemplary and amiable.  He was temperate.  He lived up to his rank in the world without penuriousness or extravagance and guided his affairs with discretion.  Careful of himself, charitable towards others, decent and exact but unaffected, without pride and without meanness, grave but not morose, sincere in his conversation and winning without flattery.  Let those of his friendship and acquaintance be thankful to God for the endearments of it.  Let the public be thankful for the happy fruits of his integrity and wisdom."  (R‑203)

CHILDREN OF JOSEPH GRAVES (49)

Samuel Graves (92) was born 14 Feb. 1666/7.  He married Anna Stone.  She died 14 March 1739.  He was a blacksmith, and lived in Sudbury, MA.  His son James was appointed administrator of his estate on Oct. 3, 1757.

E. K. Squier in “Ward/Squier Connections Family Tree 2”, Public Member Trees, Ancestry.com, claims that Samuel and Anna had another child, Joseph Graves, born 6 Nov. 1699 in Framingham, MA, married Rachel Pratt.  That is genealogy 133.  Although it is possible that is correct, no evidence for that is known.  (R‑203)

It is possible that Richard Graves was the father out of wedlock of one or more children by Johanna Perry of Watertown, MA.  See genealogy 541 for a discussion of the possibility that Richard was the father of Sarah Graves, born about 1694 in Sudbury.  (R‑201, R‑203)

Ebenezer Graves (97) was born 28 Feb. 1681/2 in Sudbury, MA, and died 6 Feb. 1755 at Stow, MA, where he was known as Deacon Graves.  He married Elizabeth Haynes, daughter of Peter Haynes and Elizabeth Rice of Sudbury, about 1702. She was born 20 March 1680/81 in Sudbury, MA (VR, p. 66), and died 21 May 1772 in Stow, aged 91 years.  They were both buried in the old cemetery at Stow Lower Village.  He purchased a farm at Stow, MA on 25 May 1724 from Rev. Zachariah Whitman of Hull, MA.  He had lived at Stow as early as 1714.  He was one of the original grantees of the Narragansett Township as laid out and confirmed on 18 April 1735, on account of the services of his father, Joseph Graves (as a soldier in King Philip's War).  Their first 5 children were born in Sudbury, MA, and their last 5 were born in Stow, MA.

In the genealogy compiled by John Card Graves, there is an error for this part of the family.  He switched the husbands of daughters Mary and Marcy.  Stow vital records list the marriage intentions of Marcy Graves and John Gordon on 4 Dec. 1758.  The marriage of Mary Graves is not found in Stow vital records.

A Wetherbee genealogy indicates that Isaac Wetherbee married Mary Graves and their daughter Mercy, after her mother's death, was adopted by her aunt, Mrs. Marcy (Graves) Gordon, wife of John Gordon.

The first certain record of the establishment of mills of any kind is in the deed of Feb. 19, 1770 by which John Gordon and his wife Mercy conveyed to Timothy Gibson for $300, land with a grist and saw mill, previously the property of their father, Ebenezer Graves; the dam and mills were built by Mr. Graves before 1750. (Stow, Massachusetts, 1683-1933, compiled in honor of the 250th Anniversary of the Town, published by Rev. and Mrs. Preston R. Crowell.)  (R‑8, R‑31, R‑203)

CHILDREN OF DORCAS GRAVES (108) AND PHILIP COX

Philip (or Phillip) Cox (197) was born 13 June 1705 and died 19 Sept. 1785, both in NJ.  He married Hannah Trembly (or Trembley), daughter of Peter Trembley and Martha Graves.  She was born about 1708.  It has also been said that he married twice, first to Anna Trembley and second to Johannah Trembley, but that sounds like the same person, especially since the births of the two sets of children overlapped.  (R‑71, R‑73)

CHILDREN OF EDWARD WALDO (112) AND THANKFUL DIMMOCK

Shubael Waldo (205) was born 7 April 1707 in Windham, Windham Co., CT, and died 12 May 1776 in Alstead, Cheshire Co., NH.  He married Abigail Allen, daughter of Samuel Allen, on 14 Oct. 1730 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Co., MA.  She was born 5 Aug. 1712 in East Bridgewater or Bridgewater, Plymouth Co., MA, and died 6 Sept. 1799 in Shaftsbury, Bennington Co., VT.

Abigail Allen has been generally accepted as a daughter of Samuel Allen III, born 4 Dec. 1660, and his second wife Mary.  However, it appears more likely that Abigail was a daughter of Samuel Allen IV, born 1686, and an unknown first wife, making her a granddaughter of Samuel III.  This seems more likely, even though it is not generally accepted.  The will of Samuel III, written in 1736, lists “my grandson Samuel Allen and my granddaughter Abigail Waldo.”  Abigail was born in 1712, and married Shubael Waldo in 1730.  Among the 15 children born from this marriage, the 10th child named Abigail, born in 1747, was born 10 years after Samuel III wrote his will dated 1 Sept. 1736.  Since there is no known codicil that would have added Abigail Waldo (born 1747) as “my granddaughter Abigail Waldo”, one must conclude that Abigail and Samuel were in fact grandchildren and that Abigail (born 1712) was not the daughter of Samuel III and his wife Mary.  No doubt these two children belonged to Samuel IV and his unknown wife.  It is also interesting to note that Samuel IV was not mentioned in the will.

There have been some people who believed that the second wife of Samuel Allen III was Mary Alden.  However, it is well established that she was Mary Pratt, born 1662 in Weymouth, MA, daughter of Matthew Pratt and Sarah Hunt.  Torrey’s New England Marriages Prior to 1700, p. 30, and the History of Weymouth by George W. Chamberlain, vol. 4, p. 502, both list a Mary Pratt marrying an Allen.  The records of Brunswick Separate Church, Scotland, CT, list a Joseph4 Allen, son of Samuel3 and his second wife, as one of the original members of the church.  Also handwritten in these papers was a short statement: “Samuel Allen of Bridgewater, Massachusetts married a Pratt for his second wife by whom he had Joseph...”

It is also believed that Samuel Allen III married Jane (Vining) Turner as his third wife, rather than her marrying Samuel Allen IV.  This is supported by Samuel III naming his wife Jean or Jane in his will, and the fact that she was 14 years older than Samuel IV.

The first 5 children of Shubael and Abigail were born in Norwich, New London Co., CT, and the others in Mansfield, Tolland Co., CT.  (R‑18, R‑36, R‑56)

William Graves (339) was born 12 May 1737.  He moved to Killingly, Conn. and married there (no records of marriages at Killingly before 1800).  He saw a good deal of service with the Conn. troops in the French and Indian Wars.  He enlisted 15 April and served until 20 Oct. 1755 in Capt. Patterson's Co. (the 5th), First Conn. Regt.  He was corporal in Capt. Hinman's Co. (the 3rd) from 5 April to 20 Nov. 1756 and sergeant in Capt. Preston's Co. (the 13th), Col. Lyman's Regt. in the campaign of 1757 from March 10 to Nov. 23.  He was sergeant in Capt. McNeal's Co. (the 10th), 4th Conn. Regt. from 29 March to 12 Nov. 1758.  He was out with the Minute Men at the Lexington Alarm in 1775 and was said to have been in Capt. Clark's Co., Col. Latimer's Regt. of Militia at Saratoga from 24 Aug. to 30 Oct. 1777.

There were two other family members who may have been children of William Graves.  They are Sabastian Graves who married John Cleveland, and Polly Graves who married Stephen St. John.  However, it is not impossible that Sabastian was a daughter of William’s son William, and that Polly was a daughter of William’s son Lebbeus.  See Appendix for discussion of these family members.  (R‑203)

CHILDREN OF RICHARD GRAVES (178) AND PATIENCE GROUT

Peter Graves (353) was born 25 Nov. 1745 in Westminster, Worcester Co., MA, and died 29 Oct. 1824 at Groton, Middlesex Co., MA.  His wife Esther and a daughter died within a few days of his death, so it is possible there was an epidemic.

He first married Susannah (or Susan) Hager, daughter of Samuel Hager and Mary Fiske, on 10 Feb. 1768 in Westminster, MA (seems to be a discrepancy with the date of the marriage notice).  The marriage notice was published 11 Feb. 1768.  She died 4 Sept. 1778 in her 32nd year, leaving 7 children.  He married again and his second wife had one child and died shortly afterward.

He thirdly married Hannah McIntyre (or McIntire) on 26 April 1789 in Westminster, MA.  She bore him one son, and died in Dec. 1789 (or in 1792).  Although it seems likely that Hannah died in Dec. 1789 in childbirth or soon after,  Mrs. Ward (R‑14) says that even if Hannah died in 1792, no evidence of any other children has been found in Westminster or any of the other towns in which Peter is reputed to have lived.

He married for his fourth wife Esther (or Easter) Lawrence (or Lawrance) of Groton, MA, daughter of Nehemiah Lawrence and Esther Fitch, on 29 Nov. 1798 in Groton, MA (Groton VR).  She was born 3 Nov. 1780 in Groton, MA, and died in 1824 in Groton, a few days after her husband.

He served with the Minute Men in April 1775 in Capt. Noah Miles' Co., and in Capt. Elisha Jackson's Co., Major Bridge's Battalion, in 1777.

He lived in Westminster until about 1797, when he moved to Gardner, then to Leominster, and finally to Groton, Mass., where he passed his last days.  All his children were born in Westminster.  (R‑14, R‑22, R‑201, R‑203)

CHILDREN OF MARY GRAVES (183) AND CORNELIUS BIGELOW

Paul Bigelow (367) was born 21 Jan. 1741 in Westborough, MA, and died 1 March 1806.  He married Hannah Ober, daughter of Ebenezer Ober and Hannah Fiske, on 13 Aug. 1761 in Upton, MA.  She was born 12 July 1743, and died 3 Sept. 1835 in East Ashford, NY.

It is interesting to note that the name Ober was originally written D'Aubert, being French.  The family had been Protestants who fled to England to escape persecution, settling there for several generations. Later the D'Auberts (or Obers) espoused the Puritan faith, and emigrated to Massachusetts, to the towns of Wenham, Beverly and Upton.  Hannah's father Ebenezer Ober moved to Newfane, Windham Co., VT before 1790.

Paul and Hannah Bigelow lived in Upton for a year or two, then moved to Westborough, MA, where we find they were warned (according to the usual custom of those times) to leave town in 1763.  Paul does not appear to have done so, as they remained there for several more years.

The Bigelow genealogy credits Paul with having served throughout the Revolution.  Massachusetts service records state that he entered the service at Cambridge on 19 April 1775 as a drummer in the Westborough company of minutemen.  He served for eleven days, and toward the end of the war served three additional months.

He moved to Brooklyn, Windham Co., VT after the war, appearing in the 1790 census in the town of Dummerston. Later he moved to Montreal, as did some of his children. He was a goldsmith by trade.  After he died, his widow moved to East Ashford, NY, to live with their son Job.

This information is adapted from p. 106 of the Bigelow genealogy, with additions by Patricia Bigelow.  (R‑29)

Mary ("Polly") Pierce (624) was born 7 April 1771 in Millbury, MA (according to her gravestone inscription), died 23 April 1858 in Chester, Windsor Co., VT (Chester VR), and was buried in Brookside Cem., Chester, VT.  She married Edward Ellison on 28 Feb. 1793 in Northbridge, Worcester Co., MA (Northbridge VR).  He was a farmer and she was a homemaker.

He was probably the Edward Tampling Ellison baptized 14 Oct. 1770, son of Thomas Ellison and Dorothy Tampling (or Tamplin of Tamplen).  There were several land transactions recorded for Edward in the Chester Town Clerk's office.  Edward died 20 Jan. 1843 intestate, and was buried in Brookside Cem. with his wife Mary.  His gravestone inscription was: "Edward Ellison died Jan. 20, 1843, age 72 yrs.  Farewell my children & wife, I bid adieu to mortal life, in hopes of meeting you above, where all is joy & peace & love."

His homestead was sold at auction 8 May 1843 for $500, and consisted of 58 acres located on the south line of Cavendish on the road leading from Daltonsville to Chester.  The first 3 children were born in Northbridge, MA, and the others in Chester, VT.

It was previously thought that R. Dudley Ellison, b.c. 1804, was a probable son.  He was buried in Pine Grove Cem., North Springfield, VT, with gravestone inscription: "R. Dudley Ellison, died April 24, 1870, age 66 yrs., 8 mos."  However, VT vital records show Roswell D. Ellison, age 66-7-26, farmer, born Chester, son of William and Rachel, and he is buried with them in Pine Grove Cem., so he is definitely not a son of Edward.  (R‑21)

CHILDREN OF PETER GRAVES (353)

Lucy Graves (658) was born 21 (or 24) June 1768 in Westminster, Worcester Co., MA, and died 29 Oct. 1824 in Groton, MA.  She married John Pierce, son of John Pierce and Abigail Beard, intention published 10 March 1788, in Westminster, MA.  He was born 28 Feb. 1766 and died 1 April 1853.  They lived at Westminster, Gardner, and Ashburnham, MA.  He served in the Rev. War.

Lucy is proven as daughter of Peter Graves by his will 9669, filed in Middlesex Probate Court, Cambridge, MA. In it he said, "I do give and bequeath to my daughter Lucy the wife of John Pierce the sum of fifty dollars." The will mentions his wife Esther, and children Lucy, Priscilla, Susannah, Asa, and Ezra (the other children had died before 1824), so there is no question this is the right Peter Graves.  The marriage of Lucy to John Pierce was also reported in Pierce Genealogy by Frederick Clifton Pierce, 1880, and the Westminster, MA vital records show Lucy, daughter of Peter and Susannah, born June 24, 1768.

According to History of Westminster, Mass., Lucy married Ebenezer Bemis, son of Edmund Bemis and Elizabeth Rand.  He was born 2 Sept. 1772 and died 2 Jan. 1829. They lived in Westminster.  They are not known to have had any children.  (See p. 545, R‑201)  However, as discussed in the preceding paragraphs, that is not correct.  (R‑22, R‑203)

Priscilla Graves (660) was born 23 July 1771 in Westminster, MA, and died 22 Feb. 1832.  She married Benjamin Edgell (or Edgerly), son of William Edgell and Elinor Wheeler, on 10 Dec. 1793 in Gardner, MA.  William Edgell served as Captain in the Revolution.  Benjamin was probably born in 1764.  They lived in Groton, MA, and had 10 children.  (See p. 631, R‑201; R‑203)

 

Susannah Graves (662) was born 29 March 1775 in Westminster, MA, and died 5 July (or Jan.) 1848.  She married Edmund Bemis, Jr., brother of Ebenezer Bemis who married Susannah's sister Lucy, and son of Edmund Bemis and Elizabeth Rand, on 6 April 1797 in Westminster, MA. He was born 4 June 1766, and died 11 Feb. 1857 at 91 in Troy, NH.  They lived briefly in Westminster, MA, moved to Fitchburg, MA in 1804, and then to Troy, NH.  They had 7 children, only one of whom seems to have been born in Westminster.  (See p. 545, R‑201; R‑203)

Asa Graves (665) was born 5 Sept. 1786 in Westminster, Worcester Co., MA, and died 13 March 1867.  He married Susan ("Sukey") A. Lawrence on 25 April 1805 in Groton, MA.  She was born 9 Sept. 1782 and died 14 Feb. 1836, both in Groton.  She was a daughter of Nehemiah Lawrence of Groton, MA and Esther Fitch of Bedford, MA.  Susan was probably a sister of the Esther Lawrence who was the fourth wife of Asa's father, Peter Graves.  Her other sister was probably the Sally Lawrence who married John Reed and was the mother of the Sally Reed who married Ezra Graves, Asa's half brother.  Asa was in the War of 1812.

There is a loose sheet of paper in the family Bible of John Reed Graves that is a list of the children of Asa Graves.  It was written by Susan A. Graves in Groton, MA, Aug. 1823.  The children's names and birth dates are exactly as shown below.  (R‑14, R‑203)

Children - Graves

  1187.   William Lawrence Graves, b. 29 Oct. 1805.

Ezra Graves (666) was born 10 Dec. 1789 in Westminster, Worcester Co., MA.  He probably moved with his father to Groton, MA, about 1798.

He married Sarah ("Sally") Reed of Bedford, Middlesex Co., MA on 14 Sept. 1813 in Bedford, intention published 15 May 1813.  She was born 3 Dec. 1795 in Bedford, MA, daughter of John Reed and Sally Lawrence.

They lived in Groton until at least 1830, and perhaps until at least 1835.  Ezra was in the 1820 and 1830 censuses in Groton, and he had two daughters married in Groton in 1834 and 1835.

There is no Groton death record for Ezra Graves, and he last appeared in the Groton census records in 1830.  No member of the family has been found in the 1840 census anywhere.  They start showing up in Ohio in the 1840's, but no further records for Ezra have been found.  His son, John Reed Graves, was married in Dresden, Muskingum Co., OH in 1844, and John Card Graves (R‑203) said that two of his daughters were also married there in 1844, but no record has been found to substantiate this latter claim.  Ezra's wife Sally was in the 1850 census for Muskingum Co., OH.  All their children were born in Groton, MA.  (R‑14, R‑203)

CHILDREN OF JONATHAN GRAVES (616) AND ANN TAYLOR

Anne (“Nancy”) Graves (1058) was born 17 April 1788 in Vernon, Oneida Co., NY.  She married Grove Lawrence, third child of Ariel Lawrence and Lucy Wilcox, in 1805.  He was born in 1769 in Norfolk, CT, and died in 1805.  He had first married Elizabeth Robbins, and apparently had 7 children by her.

According to family tradition, the only child of Nancy and Grove Lawrence was adopted at the age of 4 by Grove’s sister Susan Pettibone and her husband Augustus.  However, the son’s name was never changed.  Apparently the son was born after his father died, and Nancy either couldn’t raise him alone or she may have remarried.  (R‑50)

The following article was on the front page of the Grand Rapids Eagle (Grand Rapids, Kent Co., MI).

“A SAD ACCIDENT

An old gentleman known as Father Lebius Graves, living on the west side of the river, was killed this morning, under very distressing circumstances. He had left home for a short walk and was resting himself on some timbers near the side of the railroad track, when a team came along with a wagon heavily loaded with lumber. One of the wheels struck the timber on which he sat, and so cramped the wagon that it was immediately tipped over on him, causing almost instant death. He was between 80 and 90 years old, but remarkably healthy and sprightly for one of that advanced age. He had been a witness of the ups and downs of almost three generations, and was doubtless looking forward to a peaceful death in a quiet home, when he was thus suddenly stricken down. Peace to him in his quiet slumber, now that life's fitful fever is over."He died intestate. His son George G. Graves petitioned the probate court to settle the estate. The appraisers of his estate were Billeus Stocking and Leonard Covell. It appears they appraised it at one point at $12,000 and another at $15,000. His named heirs were: Lucena Graves, the widow residing in the City of GR; Sophia Wood wife of Abel Wood, residing in Spencer, Medina Co., OH; Gideon G. (sic) Graves residing at Newaygo, MI; Lucinda M. Falconer, wife of Reuben Falconer residing at Spencer, OH; George G. Graves, your petitioner; Lucy C. Stedman wife of Stephen V. Stedman residing Edgewood, IL; Sylvia Mead of the City of GR; two children of Lucena Spencer deceased of Washington, Macomb Co., MI; and two children of Polly Inman deceased of Spencer, Medina Co., OH.”

CHILDREN OF TIMOTHY GREEN (729) AND ESTHER HOUGHTON

Susan D. Green (1312) was born in Aug. 1825 in Grosvenordale, CT, and died 1 June 1897 at age 72 years, 2 months, and 18 days (death records, Webster, MA, vol. F, p. 109, no. 77).  At the time of her death, she was a widow.  She married George Allen.  They lived at Webster, MA.  (R‑5)

Children - Allen

  2020.   Charles Allen, married.  Lived in Fall River, MA, and had a son.

 

Joseph B. Green (or Greene) (1314) was born 2 March 1831 in Thompson, CT (family Bible), and died 31 March 1872 in Mechanicsville, CT (family Bible).  There is no record of his birth or death in the vital records of Thompson, CT (Mechanicsville is part of Thompson).

Proof of the parentage of Joseph includes two items.  First, the record of marriage of Joseph indicates that the parents of Joseph B. Green were "Timothy and Esther Greene".  Secondly, the record of death of Susan Allen records her parents as "Timothy and Hester Greene".

Joseph B. Greene married Mary E. Shepley, daughter of William and Mary Shepley, on 29 Nov. 1854.  The names of both her parents appear on her death certificate, and the name of her father appears on her marriage record.  In her own handwriting in the family Bible, Mary gives her birth date as 11 Sept. 1832, and her place of birth as New York City.  In her marriage record, however, she gives her place of birth as Bristol, RI.  A search of the register of births for the borough of Manhattan for the years 1827 to 1836 did not disclose a record for her (perhaps she was born elsewhere in N.Y. City; part of the Bronx was part of N.Y. City at that time; or perhaps she really was born in Bristol, RI).

The marriage record of Joseph and Mary in the family Bible indicates that the marriage was at Woonsocket, RI.  The official record of marriage, however, is in the city of Central Falls, RI (formerly the town of Smithfield) in book 3, p. 30 of the marriage records.  This record lists Joseph's occupation as "carder".

Joseph enlisted in the Army on 6 Aug. 1862 to serve in the Civil War.  He was discharged 27 June 1865 at Harper's Ferry, VA, at which time he was a corporal in Capt. James P. Rockwell's Co. C, 18th Regt., Conn. Infantry Volunteers.

It is believed that Joseph was killed in a train accident, but whether he was hit by a train, or fell from a train on which he may have been working, is not known.  He was buried in the West Thompson Cem., Mechanicsville, CT, at what is now the junction of Routes 12 and 193.  The inscription on his gravestone is as follows:

"This is my father's grave

Joseph B. Green

Died March 31, 1872

Aged 41 years and 28 days

Dearest Husband thou hast left me

Here thy loss I deeply feel

But tis God that hath bereaved me

He can all our sorrows heal"

Mary E. Greene died 24 Feb. 1881 in East Greenwich, RI, of "organic disease of the heart" (recorded in the East Greenwich VR).  Her place of burial is not known.

Although it is believed that Joseph and Mary had 5 children (as indicated in the birth record of their daughter Carrie), only the 4 listed below were recorded in the family Bible.  It is possible another child may have died in infancy.  (R‑5)

Fish (of East Greenwich, RI), 25 July 1875 (Pawtucket, RI; Marriage Records, Pawtucket, Book 2, p. 123), d. 1 April 1876 (East Greenwich, RI; family Bible).  According to the family Bible, the marriage was 24 July 1875.

“ZUINGLIUS C. GRAVES, LL. D., president of the Mary Sharp College, of Winchester, Tenn., was born April 15, 1816, in Windsor County, Vt., being a son of Zuinglius C. and Lois M. (Snell) Graves, natives of Massachusetts and of German, descent. When our subject was but five years old his father died, and he was then reared by his mother to the age of sixteen. At this age he entered the Chester Academy of Vermont, and afterward attended the Black River Institution at Ludlow, Vt., graduating from this school in 1837. He then went to the Western Reserve, Kingsville, Ohio, and founded the Kingsville Academy, of which he was president for twelve years. In December, 1850, he was called to Winchester, Tenn., to establish and conduct the Mary Sharp College, the presidency of which he has held ever since. From the very germ he has developed Mary Sharp to be one of the very best colleges for the education of women in the country. Dr. Graves was licensed to preach in the Missionary Baptist Church when nineteen years of age. The degree of A. M. was conferred upon him by the Madison University of New York, and the degree of LL. D. by the Union University of Murfreesboro, Tenn. He is a man wholly attached to his work, and has had under his charge as many as 10,000 different pupils during his career. He was married at the age of twenty-five, in Kingsville, Ohio, to Miss Adelia C. Spencer, the fruits of this union being four children-James R., who was killed in the late war; Florence M., who died after becoming the wife of Henry Green, a commission merchant of Columbus, Ga.; Zu. D., deceased; and Hubert A. Dr. Graves is an enterprising and valued citizen of Franklin County, and one of the eminent instructors of the State.”

CHILDREN OF NATHAN WALDO (766) AND LOIS HURLBURT

John Waldo (1370) was born 4 March 1788, and died 2 April 1879 in Dexter, Washtenaw Co., MI.  He married Lavina Winchester, daughter of Benjamin Winchester and Bethia Benjamin.  She was born 11 July 1788 in CT, and died 23 Aug. 1877 in Dexter, MI.

Data regarding John and his family has been difficult to obtain.  We know that pages 42 and 43 of Continuation of Waldo Genealogy, 1900-1943, by Charles S. Waldo, state: "John, son of Nathan (Shubael, Shubael, Edward, John, Cornelius) and Lois (Hurlburt) Waldo; died at Dexter, MI.  He was probably the John Waldo who, with Levina, his wife, of Buffalo, NY, sold land in Buffalo and, on 13 May 1835, he and his wife sold land in Aurora, NY; he may be the John Waldo who with Louisa, his wife, of Batavia, NY, sold land in Batavia, 16 Feb. 1828, but this is doubtful for if so, he has a second wife, unless "Louisa" is a copyist's error for Levina or vice versa.  His wife's surname is said to have been Winchester.  They had six children, all daughters, of whom the names of but three are known.  Mr. Waldo resided for many years near Conneaut on the state line between PA and OH and kept a hotel known as the "State Line House".  He finally moved to Dexter, MI.  Children of John and Levina (Winchester) Waldo: Miranda, married in 1830 Calvin-Turner, son of Nathaniel and Phoebe (Millard) Fillmore of Sepronius, NY.  He was the brother of President Millard Fillmore.  He was a carpenter and was living in 1857 at or near Ann Arbor, MI.  Lucy and Polly.  (Waldo Gen., pp. 877, 878, and ms. of Henry A. Waldo)"

An article written by David L. Elliott, no date, on the "History of Jefferson Township, Hillsdale Co., MI", stated : "Greatgrandfather Elisha Hutchinson Adams married Carolina Waldo of Dexter, MI, and the family always remembered that her oldest sister, Miranda, had married a brother of President Millard Fillmore who danced at their wedding."
