Revised 13 Jan. 2006, Gen. 57







Thomas Graves (1) was probably born in Tennessee about 1750.  He married a Miss Liles.  (This information is from the Mormon records at Salt Lake City, Utah.)  He lived in Carter Co., Tenn., and probably North and/or South Carolina.  He had at least one son named William and probably had other children.

George Perkins, father of Anna Perkins, said in his application for a Rev. War pension that he lived on the Watauga River in N.C. for several years.  The Watauga River flows from what is now Watauga Co., N.C. across the state line into Johnson and Carter counties, Tenn.  The 1798 tax list for Carter Co., Tenn. shows: Benjamin Graves, 1 white poll; John Graves, 60 acres; George Perkins, 1 white poll, 100 acres; Jacob Perkins, 1 white poll, 240 acres.  This John Graves was about 50 years old and the father of Benjamin and Nancy Ann Graves who married Jacob Perkins.

Also, see the genealogy for Hardy Graves who was born about 1775 in SC and died in Pike Co., AL.  Could this Hardy be another son of Thomas Graves?

It is possible that there is a connection between this family and that of John Graves of Frederick Co., Va. and Coshocton Co., Ohio (genealogy 116), mainly based on intermarriages with the Perkins and Wright families.  On this same basis, there is also a slight possibility of a connection with the family of John D. Graves of Md., Mo., and Ky (genealogy 111).  However, it now seems much more likely that this is part of the Graves family of Caroline Co. and Halifax Co., VA, which includes genealogies 145, 92 and 155, based on name, place, and DNA similarities..  (R‑1)

+2.  William Graves, b.c. 1776, m. Anna E. Perkins, 1802, d. 11 Aug. 1830.






William Graves (2) was born in Tennessee about 1776, and died 11 Aug. 1830 in Lawrence Co., KY.  He married Anna or Anne ("Annie") E. Perkins, in 1802.  She was a daughter of George Perkins (Rev. War soldier, one of 6 children of William Perkins and Mary ("Polly") Black) and Keziah Manning.  The family lived in Carter Co., TN, then moved to Lawrence Co., Kentucky.

After William's death, the family moved to Lee Co., Iowa to the town of Primrose.  Some of the family members apparently stayed in KY.

It was believed that there was a connection to the ill-fated Donner party that went to California in 1846.  The people in the Donner party list with the surname Graves were: Eleanor, Elizabeth, Franklin Ward, F. W. Jr., Jonathan, Lovina, Mary, Nancy and W. C.  However, the Graves family members in the Donner party were descendants of immigrant Thomas Graves of Hartford, Conn. and Hatfield, Mass. (see book by K. V. Graves.), and not related to this Graves family.  (R‑1, R‑200)

Stephen Hardy Graves (3) was born 15 (or 14) Feb. 1803 in Carter Co., TN, and died 8 Aug. 1885 in Lewis Co., MO[1].  He supposedly first married Sally Childers on 5 April 1821 in Floyd Co., KY[2].  (This is rather young, and none of the children shown below are by her; maybe she married another Hardy Graves.)  He secondly married Sarah (“Sallie”) McKinstry, daughter of William McKinstry (or McKinster) and Elizabeth Hale Hinds, on 14 (or 22) Feb. 1829 in Lawrence Co., KY.  She was born 16 July 1808 in VA, and died 10 Sept. 1887 in Inman, McPherson Co., KS.  They moved to Iowa in 1837 and to Lewis Co., MO in 1854.  His first 4 children were born in Lawrence Co., KY and the others in Lee Co., Iowa (except for Sarah, who was born in Lewis Co., MO).

The 1860 census for Salem, Lewis Co., MO, lists the entire family (by initials), except for Sidney, Lavisa, and William Wallace, who have apparently moved out.  The 1870 census for Twp. 61, Range 9, Lewis Co., MO, page 767, listed S. H. Graves, 67, Sallie, 61, children Rebecca, 24, Eli, 19, and Stephen, 17, children of son William Wallace Graves, Sallie, 10, and John, 8, and children of son John Martin Graves, Martha A., 5, and Stephen H., 3.  Neither Stephen nor Sallie have been found in the 1880 census in Lewis Co. or anywhere else in MO.  (R‑1, R‑6, R‑200)

Children - Graves

  23.  William Jasper Graves, b.c. 1844.


Keziah Graves (7) was supposedly born 1811, probably in Tenn. but possibly in Ky.  However, either the date of her first marriage or her birth date is wrong, since she would have been only 10 at marriage.  She first married William Childers (or Childress) on 7 Nov. 1821 in Floyd Co., Ky.  She secondly married Nathan Bartlett on 2 April 1843.  (R‑2)

Children - Childers

  24.  Mary Ann ("Sally" or "Polly") Childers, m(1) Riley Lanham, 7 Oct. 1839 (Lee Co., Iowa), m(2) Thomas Wilson, 16 July 1843 (Lee Co., Iowa).  1870 census shows her as Marian.  According to History of Appanoosa Co., Iowa, Thomas Wilson was born 3 Feb. 1820 in Grant Co., Ky., m. Mrs. Mary Ann Chiddress Lanham, 16 July 1843, Lee Co., Iowa.

William Liles Graves (8) was born 6 April 1818 in Floyd Co., Ky.  He first married Nancy Wilson on 2 Dec. 1838. She died three days after they were married.  He secondly married Sarah Olfin or Susan (or Susana) Allphin on 7 Dec. 1841.  She died a year and a half later.  He thirdly married Marinda Haskins on 14 Jan. 1844, supposedly at Primrose, Lee Co., Iowa.  She was born in 1827 in Ohio. While they lived in Iowa, apparently a younger brother named Loudus Haskins was living with them, according to the 1850 census.  He was 21 in 1850 and also born in Ohio.

Sometime after late 1850 and prior to April 1852, the family moved to Lewis Co., Mo.  They were in the Lee Co., Iowa 1850 census and were on the 1860 census for Lewis Co., Mo.  They were in Lewis Co., Mo. by April 1852, since the 1860 census indicates that their son, John F. Graves, was born in Missouri.  William Liles Graves, bought 160 acres of farm land in Lewis Co. somewhere near Monticello and built a brick home.  He died 11 April 1861 at his home, reportedly from an illness caused by inhalation of fumes from slaking of lime for mortar for the brick house.  He was only 43 at the time of his death, his oldest child, James Morgan, being only 14. The family stayed together with the older boys running the farm until at least 1870, as they were on the 1870 census of Lewis Co., Mo.  Sometime in 1870 or 1871, George Wayne Graves made a trip to Kansas, and came back and encouraged the family to sell the place and move to Kansas, which they did.  (R‑1, R‑3, R‑200)

  35.  Newton Turner Graves, b. 10 March 1861 (date may be in error since N. T. was reported to have been born after his father's death, which was 11 April 1861 and these dates don't fit the scheme of things.)  Turner moved to Colorado about 1908 or 1909 and is believed to have died at Laramie, Colorado, date not known.  Mrs. Broden located a Turner Graves in Boulder, Colo., but has not received a reply from him.  He may be a son or grandson of Newton Turner Graves.  However, there was a Turner Graves in the 1930 census for Highland Twp., Lewis Co., MO, ED 57, page 61, who was age 58, living in the household of Joseph West as a servant, who is almost certainly this N. T. Graves.  No one close to the correct age with that name was found in the 1930 census.






Anna (or Ann) Graves (9) was born 15 March 1830 in Lawrence Co., KY. She married Andrew J. McCullough, son of Andrew McCullough (b.c. 1787 in Scotland), on 18 Nov. 1860, as his third wife.  He was born about 1819 and died 25 April 1875.  He first married Eliza Jane Anderson about 1843, probably in Missouri, and had four children.  Eliza died in 1851, and Andrew secondly married a widow with several children, but this second marriage did not last long. All the children of Anna and Andrew were born in Knox Co., Mo.  (R‑1)

Wright.  She was born 30 March 1841 and died 18 Oct. 1862.  He secondly married Mary Wright of Tulula, Ill.  He thirdly married Mrs. Katherine Jobes.  Her full name may actually have been Sarah Catherine Jobes or Job, since William was in the 1880 census for LaBelle, Lewis Co., MO, page 149B, with wife Sarah C. Graves, age 43, born in MO, and stepdaughter Jennie L. Job, 21, born in MO.  William later lived in Inman, McPherson Co., Kans.  All his children were born in Lewis Co., MO.  (R‑200)

He was in the 1870 census for Twp. 61, Range 9, Lewis Co., MO, page 761, with his 2 children but no wife.  Interestingly, his children were also listed in the household of his parents.  The 1880 census for Groveland, McPherson Co., KS, page 385C, lists John M., 42, Isabell, 27, Martha A., 15, Stephen H., 13, Lloyd E., 5, and Orin L., 3.  The 1900 census for Jackson, McPherson Co., KS, page 2B, lists J.
