DESCENDANTS OF JOHN GRAVES AND MARGERY HARVEY

OF RANDOLPH CO., NC

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

John Graves (1) was born about 1740 in VA, and died in 1811.  According to Miss Laura L. Walker (from information originally supplied by Mrs. Nellie (Cox) Beane), John was born in England.  However, according to R‑50, the statement that John was born in England probably came from someone who re-copied copies of notes of Phanney Graves (b. 1803) who stated her grandfather, John Graves, was from a John Graves, born in England, who came to America about 1635.  The year of 1635 got changed through re-copying to 1735 or 1755 or somewhere in between.  There is no information as to who may have a copy of the original notes of Phanney Graves.  R‑50 states that John Graves came to NC with explorers of the same last name, some sons of Thomas Graves of Spotsylvania Co., VA.  They came to the area by 1755.  He married Margery Harvey, also said to be from VA.  John and Margery lived on Bumper’s Fork of Little River.  This 312 acres of land was sold in 1822, after Margery was deceased, by sons Leonard and Samuel to Silas Moffitt (Randolph Co. Deed Bk. 14, p. 214).  This land adjoined Leonard, Samuel, and William Bolling.

Per R‑210, which cites the Randolph Geneaolgical Journals, the name of John Graves’ wife is rendered as Margery in his 1811 will and in an 1815 tax roll, as Margere on the 1820 tax roll, and as Marge in a 1789 deed.

John’s will was dated 5 Jan. 1811, and probated in Nov. 1811 in Randolph Co., NC (Will Book 3, p. 311).  Margery and their son Samuel were executors of the will.  Beneficiaries were wife Margery, daughters Mary and Elizabeth, sons Samuel, William, Leonard, and John Jr.  Richard, a witness to the will, had shared a land grant with John Graves, Sr., so apparently had received his share of the estate previously.  Not all of the following 8 children are proven.  There are obvious discrepancies between the accounts and possibilities given in the book by Lillian Sheppard and that by Aubrey Graves.

The first William Graves listed below died in late Dec. 1791 or early 1792.  In a will dated 30 Dec. 1791 he gave his land to his brother Leonard, and personal possessions to his brother Samuel and his sister Mary Anne (“Anne”).  According to R‑50 and R‑210, William obtained land grant No. 401 from the state of North Carolina on 18 Aug. 1787, registered 12 Dec. 1788 (Warrant No. 208, surveyed 29 Dec. 1786), for 300 acres of land on the Little River in Randolph Co.  If the entry date for this land grant was 1786, then he must have been born by 1765 at least, according to R‑50.  William Graves may also be placed in Randolph Co. by a signed 1785-1788 petition regarding court house location.  If he had a family, they predeceased him.  The last son born, William, was named after his older brother.

Per R‑50, Elizabeth Graves married Michael Harvey, who may have presented John Graves’ will in court in 1811.  If Elizabeth was married in 1811, she was probably born by 1791.  Leonard sold land in 1794 (the 312 acres willed to him by brother William).  Having to be at least 21 years of age in 1794, he was born by 1773.  Anne and Mary Graves, previously listed separately, are, according to R‑50, one daughter named Mary Anne Graves.  In 1794, she witnessed a deed as Mary Hudson.  If she was at least 21 years of age at this time, then she was born by 1773.

It is believed that there may be a connection between this family and the families of Peter Graves, page 90, 1978 Graves Family Newsletter, and William B. Graves, page 69, 1979 Graves Family Newsletter?

Also, on pages 105 and 107, 1978 newsletter is information on the descendants of Samuel L. Graves, b.c. 1816, NC, d. 25 March 1869, Texas Twp., DeWitt Co., IL.  He probably first married Molly Mann, married second Mary Wright, then married Sarah Ann (Baily?) Davis.  Since one of his grandchildren was named Zilpha, perhaps he was related to John Graves of Randolph Co.  (R‑1, R‑7, R‑9, R‑18, R‑44, R‑50, R‑201, R‑202, R‑210)

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF JOHN GRAVES AND MARGERY HARVEY (1)

Samuel Graves (2) was probably born before 1764/5 in Randolph Co., NC.  The estimated date of birth is based on 1815 tax list, “0 poll tax,” making him over 50 years of age, or born by 1764/5.  He died 1830-1840, possibly in Clay Co., IN, or while enroute.  He married Zylphia Steed, daughter of Nathaniel Steed and Susannah Franklin of VA.  Nathaniel Steed was the son of John Steed, Sr. and Ann Hill.  Zylphia was born about 1762, and died in April 1850 in Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN.  She was 88 when she died.  (She was listed in the Mortality Book for 1850.)  Samuel is said to have sold his land between 1815-1822 in preparation for his move to IN.  By 1831 the family and many others started from Randolph Co., NC to Clay Co., IN by horseback train.

As written in R‑210 and per R‑2, Samuel Graves is mentioned in contemporary records as Samuel Graves Esquire.  He may be placed in Randolph Co., NC by deeds of 1787, 1788 and 1791, a militia record of March 1789, census records of 1790, 1800, and 1810, marriage bonds of 1799 and 1819, court records of 1793 and bastardy bonds of 1812, 1814, 1835, and 1839, tax rolls of 1803, 1815 and 1820, and a voting roll of 1817.  He was a constable in 1788.  He owned considerable property, including 612 acres on the Little River, 250 acres on the Uharie River, and 100 acres on Reedy Creek.

The following children are believed by R‑2 to be the children of Samuel and Zylphia, but only Mary Ann has been proven to be a child.  According to R‑50, Samuel Sr. and Zylphia had a total of 11 children, eight born by 1800.  The 1790 census lists 2 sons and 1 daughter.  The 2 sons were probably Samuel, Jr. and Gillum (thought by some to be a child of John and Margery Graves) Graves.  The 1800 census lists 3 sons and 5 daughters.  This son was probably John Graves who married Annie ("Jonsy") Spencer.  Samuel Graves, Sr. deeded 262 acres of land to John in 1822 (Bk. 17, p. 356) which was witnessed by Mark and Anney Bolling.  Mark Bolling was the brother of Talitha who married Samuel, Jr.  It is said that John could walk 1¼ miles from his house to the village of Seagrove where he somestimes served as a magistrate.  Per R‑50, Jane Graves is a probable daughter but no information on a Henry Graves.  R‑50 also suggests that some of the children attributed to Samuel Graves and Zylphia may actually be the children of Samuel Graves, Jr.  (R‑9, R‑17, R‑44, R‑50, R‑201)

Richard (“Dickey”) Graves (4) was born some time between 1765 to 1769[3], in Randolph Co., NC, and died 15 June 1849 in Randolph Co., NC.  Randolph Geneological Journal, Vol. 16, No. 3, p. 15, cites:  Richard Graves, 80 years old, d. June 1849 after a ten day illness; cf. 1850 Mortality Schedule of Randolph Co., NC.  He was buried in the original Graves Cemetery which is located in Randolph Co., ¼ mile west of State Road 134 and ¼ mile north of State Road 1118 on an unpaved road.  The graveyeard reportedly contains 19 graves.  R-50 states that according to some information, Richard and his wife were buried on land owned by their son, Samuel.  He married Hannah Fincher, daughter of Benjamin Fincher.  Benjamin was a Quaker, joining the Cane Creek Monthly Meeting, Orange Co., NC, in 1755, with his family.  Hannah was born about 1769, listed as age 81 on the 1850 census, then living in the household of her son Samuel Graves.  She died 9 Nov. 1856 in NC at age 87.  They moved to the Seagrove area by 1794 and settled on Little River in the southern part of the county.  All their children were born in Randolph Co., although the information on their son Richard is just that he was born in NC.  Richard’s home plantation was purchased in 1794 from his brother, Leonard, who inherited the land in 1791 from his brother William Graves.  William had obtained the land by a 1787 grant from the state.  Richard then deeded this land in 1841 to his son Samuel.  Richard and Hannah moved in with Samuel and his wife Rachel.

The book Fincher in the USA, 1683-1900, compiled by Evelyn Davis Fincher and Ann Wilson Fincher, gives much information on the Fincher family.  Hannah Fincher is descended from Francis Fincher, a Quaker from Worcester, England, who arrived in Philadelphia, PA, 7 mo., 28th day, 1683 (May 28, 1683) aboard the ship “Bristol Comfort” accompanied by his second wife, Mary (Achelley) Fincher, his small children and servants.  The descent of Hannah was: Francis1, John2, Jonathan3, Benjamin4, Hannah5.  Benjamin was born about 1740 in Chester Co., PA, and died 19 March 1808 in Randolph Co., NC, leaving a wife, 2 sons, and 5 daughters.

As written in R‑210, Richard Graves may be placed in Randolph Co., NC by documentary evidence dating from 1785, including a signed petition, a law suit of 1789, census records of 1790, 1800, 1830, and 1840, deeds of 1791-1841, militia records of 1801-1802, a will of 1811, tax rolls of 1803, 1815, 1820, and 1828, voting records of 1817, and marriage bonds for his son Benjamin in 1822 and daughter Nancy in 1825.

Local Randolph Co. history gives information that two of Richard’s sons, Benjamin and Samuel, remained in NC and four other sons went West.  It is said thay had six boys and six girls in total.  According to R‑50, Mary Anne and Nancy are most often identified as daughters of Richard and Hannah, which is confirmed by letters and other information.  In addition to the children listed below, Cindy Holsapple-Boone says that Jane Graves (#16) who married Randolph Bowling was also a child of this Richard Graves.  However, R‑50 believes Jane is probably a daughter of Richard’s brother Samuel.  The birth order is unclear.  (R‑1, R‑4, R‑7, R‑12, R‑13, R‑29, R‑30, R‑31, R‑44, R‑50, R‑84, R‑85, R‑87, R‑89, R‑90, R‑201, R‑202, R‑210)

Leonard Graves (6) was born before 1773 in Randolph Co., NC, and died before 1850.  He is listed on the 1815 tax list for Randolph Co.  He married ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  According to R‑50, Leonard’s son Richard has repeatedly been misidentified as the son of Richard and Hannah Fincher Graves and the two men mistakenly combined into one.  Per R‑50, Martha Provost, now deceased, was “the most informed person on this subject.”  She states that the Richard who married Agnes Graves and the Richard who married Nancy Vuncannon are two separate men who were first cousins.  (R‑50, R‑75)

William Graves (9) was born about 1794, presumably in Randolph Co., NC, and died after 10 Sept. 1850, probably in Indiana.  He married Sarah Ann ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She was also born about 1794, and died after 1850 according to the 1850 census.  On the 1820 census, a William Graves, age 26-45, one female 16-26, and two males, 0-10 are listed.  According to R‑201, William was listed with six children in the 1830 census for Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN.  William bought two pieces of land in Clay Co. early in 1836 and sold them in Dec. 1836.  On the 1850 census for Sterling Twp., Crawford Co., IN, a William Graves, age 56, born North Carolina and Sarah Graves, age 56, born North Carolina are shown following an entry for John (#60) and Catharine Graves.

There is some question that the John Graves below is the son of this William Graves; William Graves was listed as the father on John’s death certificate; no mother’s name was given.  R‑34 believes that the John Graves below was the son of William Graves (#26).  (R‑29, R‑201)

GENERATION 3

 

CHILDREN OF SAMUEL GRAVES (2) AND ZYLPHIA STEED

Samuel Graves, Jr. (10) was born in 1785-1786 per R‑50, but others say between 1800 and 1810 in Randolph Co., NC.  He married Mary M. Mann on 28 March 1828 in Vigo Co., IN.  She was born 1810-1820.  According to R‑50, this man may be confused with another person.  A Samuel Graves, Jr. is listed in 1815 Randolph Co. with 240 acres-Little River.  Would a man born 1800 to 1810 list acres in 1815?  This Samuel Graves, Jr. who listed acres/taxes in 1815 is belived by R‑50 to be the Samuel Graves deeded 250 acres of land in 1807.  If this is the Samuel Graves born by 1785/6, then he would be about 21 years old in 1807.  The Samuel Graves born by 1785/6 married Talitha Bolling (Bolling family history) and went to IN.  The following children were listed in the 1840 census for Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN.  The Samuel Graves recorded on the 1860 census in Van Buren Twp., IN was Samuel (#216), son of John Graves and Mary Smitherman.  (R‑50, R‑17, R‑201)

Gillum (or Gilliam) Graves (11) was born about 1785/6 in Randolph Co., NC, and probably died before 1850 when Sarah was recorded on the 1850 census in Boone Co., IA living with her son Henry.  He married Sarah Ann ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She was born about 1794 in NC, and died after 1870 in Boone Co., IA.  She was recorded on the 1850-1870 censuses in Boone Co., IA.  In 1854, a Sarah Graves (living in Iowa) sold land in Clay Co., IN to Henry Graves, son of Gillum’s brother Samuel (#10).  Gillum is listed on the 1815 tax list for Randolph Co.  He witnessed deeds in 1815 and 1818.  (R‑44, R‑50, R‑51, R‑201)

Children - Graves

+74.  William Graves, b. 1814, m. Sarah Lucas, 1839, d.c. 1844.

  76.  daughter, b. 1830-1840.

  77.  daughter, b. 1830-1840.

  78.  son, died in NC.

 

Mary Ann Graves (13) was born 5 April 1793 in Randolph Co., NC, and died 10 Oct. 1831, while enroute from NC to Indiana by horseback train (soon after the group had crossed the border of either Ohio or Indiana), and was buried by the roadside in either Ohio or Indiana.  She married Stephen A. Lowdermilk, son of John Harrison Lowdermilk and his first wife Mary Elliott, on 25 June 1812 in Randolph Co., NC.  He was born 15 May 1793 in Randolph Co., near Asheboro, died 15 Sept. 1872 near Ashboro in Clay Co., IN, and was buried in Cade Cem., Perry Twp., Clay Co., IN.  Ashboro, IN and the Mt. Olive Church near there were supposedly named by Stephen and his son William for the town and church near their NC home.  An old record says “John Lowdermilk was a large slave holder and on account of Stephen’s anti-slavery convictions he was disinherited by his parents.”  All the children of Mary Ann and Stephen were born in Randolph Co., NC.

On arriving in Indiana, Stephen first settled on the Eel River, but shortly afterwards moved to Jackson township, section 29, and built a cabin.  He later went on foot to Vincennes, IN, to enter his first 40 acres of land from the government, and he added more later, making a total of 150 acres.  It was at this time he met and married his second wife, Mrs. Sarah (‑‑‑‑) Bolin, widow of Richard T. Bolin, about 1838 in Clay Co., IN.  Sarah was born 3 Oct. 1803, died 9 Sept. 1871, and was buried in Union Cem.  He was an active Methodist, his cabin being used for the first church services.  For 23 years he was a justice of the peace, without having a single judgement reversed.  He was a life-long supporter of Republican principles and was importantly connected with the organization of the county and township.  He and Sarah had four children, and their eldest son, Calvin, was reared on the farm and obtained but little education.

Stephen Lowdermilk was recorded on the 1850, 1860 and 1870 censuses in Clay Co., IN.  A James W. Lowdermilk, age 19, born Indiana, was listed with the family in 1850.  It is unclear whether he was the last child of Mary and Stephen; subsequent censuses list a James W. Boling, b.c. 1831 in Indiana, who may be a son of Stephen’s second wife Sarah by her first marriage.  James W. Boling’s children married into the next generation of Graves’ descendants so Boling’s descendants are listed in the genealogy for clarity.  (R‑6, R‑9, R‑201, R‑210)

Margery (or Margere or "Marge") Graves (15) was born about 1802 (or before 1801), probably in Randolph Co., NC, and probably died in the mid-1820’s (about 1825)  She was probably a daughter of Samuel Graves who performed the marriage (or was the bondsman listed on the marriage license).  She witnessed an 1821 deed from Samuel Graves, Sr.

She married Miles Beaman (or Myles Beaman[5]) on 3 Jan. 1819 in Randolph Co., NC[6].  He was born about 1800-1801 in NC, and died after 1870, probably in West Florida.  He is listed in the 1854 school census of Nacogdoches Co., TX, the 1857 tax list of the county, and the 1850, 1860 and 1870 censuses of Nacogdoches Co.  He was listed as a farmer in the 1880 census for Nacogdoches Co.  He was a son of Abraham Beaman (b.c. 1772, d. 19 Oct. 1848, Pike Co., AL[7]) and Rhoda Godwin? (b.c. 1773, d. 29 Feb. 1864). Miles married second Sarah Jane (‑‑‑‑‑‑) Hightower in 1826 or 1828 in NC.  She was born about 1801 (or 1808) in TN, died about 1875 in Nacogdoches Co., TX, and was buried in Chireno Cem., Chireno, Nacogdoches Co., TX (or San Jacinto Co., TX per R‑66).  Sarah was listed in the 1860 and 1870 censuses, and the 1861 and 1862 tax lists of Nacogdoches Co., TX.  She married third John Speer.

Mrs. Lois Barnett Cooksey, a great great granddaughter of Miles, wrote in January 1980:  “The Beamans and Barnetts are very interesting because of inter‑marriage around 1849-1855 and also because of some sort of a family feud that made Landy Barnett desert a young second wife about to have a baby [Josephine Hightower] and Miles Beaman desert a wife (Sarah) who just had twins.  Both men went back to Pike County, Alabama.  Landy Barnett married a Celia Williams in Pike County in 1852, and Miles Beaman married a Susan Hancock in 1862.  When or where either man died is not known.”

Miles Beaman married third Susan R. E. Hancock on 30 March 1862 in Lowndes Co., AL recorded on p. 546 of Alabama Marriages, 1800-1920.

Sarah had a daughter by her first marriage, Josephine Hightower, born about 1824 in Arkansas according to R‑65.  (R‑62, R‑63, R‑64, R‑65, R‑66, R‑67, R‑211)

Children - Beaman

+90.  Rhoda Beaman, b. 12 (or 17) Nov. 1819, m(1) ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Crawford, m(2) John F. Davis (?), m(3) Benjamin F. Haney, d. 31 Dec. 1884.

 

Jane Graves (16) was born about 1800 in Randolph Co., NC, and died after 1860 in Washington Co., IN.  She married Randolph Boling (listed alternately as Bowling, Bolling, Bollen, or Bolin), son of John Bollen (or Bowling) and Lucielle ("Lucy") Randolph, about 1816 in NC.  (One source said he was son of Benjamin Bolling and Lucille Randolph.)  He was born about 1800 in Randolph Co., NC, and died 13 Feb. 1849 in Washington Co., IN.  He is believed to have been a Quaker.  They moved from NC to Indiana about 1826.

Rather than being a daughter of Samuel Graves (#2), it is possible that Jane was a daughter of Richard Graves (#4) and Hannah Fincher, or possibly of Richard’s father John.

R‑70, who is descended from Jesse Boling, brother of Randolph, through Jesse's son Larkin, wrote: "My g-g-grandfather, Larkin, spelled the last name Boling (I have his Bible) and his father, Jesse, was Boling."  She also wrote: "I would dearly love to find out who the parents of Lucy Randolph are.  I also believe the Graves line was originally from VA as were the Randolphs and Bolings/Bollings.  The 1790 NC census (Hillsborough Dist., Orange Co.) included Thomas Redding (Reddings married into Boling lines) and a Robert Graves Jr.  Also, in Sussex Co., VA on the 1787 personal property tax list was Sarah Graves, John Graves, William Graves, along with several Felts names (Pattie Felts was married to Benjamin Boling).  I think they are all related."

At least the first 6 children listed below were born in Randolph Co., NC, the seventh in NC, and all the others in Washington Co., IN.

The following was a typed record (submitted by R‑43) made by Attorney David W. Bolen, Hillsville, VA.  It was addressed to Miss Vinnie Frances Denny (#1569) and postmarked 14 Sept. 1921:

“Family of Randolph, son of John Bollen

Randolph Bollen, son of John, and grandson of Benjamin, married Jane Graves in Randolph Co., NC, and soon after their marriage moved to Washington Co., IN where they reared a family of 16 children, the youngest of whom is the present Mark Boling of Ladega, IN.  This Randolph Boling reared a daughter named Sallie who married a Mr. Hattabaugh, and the present Mrs. Pollock of Indianapolis is a daughter of this marriage.

Another daughter of Randolph Boling whose name was Clarissy married a Mr. Denny but my notes do not show the relation to Miss Vinnie Frances Denny to this marriage.  (I am giving her a copy of these notes with request that she explain her relation and that of her family to this marriage.).”  (R‑43, R‑68, R‑69, R‑70)

John Graves (17) was born about 1799 in NC, and died about 1862.  John married Anne Johnston Spencer, daughter of Johnston Spencer and Elizabeth Anne Tucker of Randolph Co., NC.  She was born about 1805 in NC, and died after 1870.  She was known as “Annie” or “Jonsy” according to R‑50.  Previous information indicated that John married Amy Tucker, daughter of Nathaniel Tucker and Martha Lawrence, however that seems to be incorrect.  Elizabeth Anne (Tucker) Spencer and Nathaniel Tucker were brother and sister, so Annie and Amy Tucker would have been first cousins.  According to R‑60, Amy Tucker was listed as a single woman in both the 1850 and 1860 censuses, living with her brother Jesse Tucker in Montgomery Co., NC.  R‑61 also states that Amy Tucker never married and lived with Jesse until she died.  The 1850 Randolph Co., NC census lists John, 51; Annie, 43; Willis, 27; Sarah, 25; Jane, 22; Polly, 19; Richard, 16; Lucy, 12; Thena, 9; Martha, 6; Calvin, 5; John C., 8 mo.  The 1870 Randolph Co., NC census lists Anna Graves, 65, and Caroline Graves, 21.  They were family 92; family 88 was her daughter Jane Luther as head of household; family 91 was Ransom Vuncannon and granddaughter Mary Luther; family 93 was her son Calvin Graves and his wife, and family 94 was her son Willis Graves.

Based on old correspondence, the Graves family apparently lived in Randolph Co., NC, near Montgomery, in the Pisgah area.

John's will did not list Pauline among his children, so it is possible she died before 1862.  His son, John, probably died young, since the will refers to Calvin as his youngest son.  (R‑10, R‑50, R‑56, R‑60, R‑61)

Children - Graves

+107.   Willis Graves, b.c. 1821, m. Mary Strider, 11 Jan. 1866, d. 14 March 1899.

+115.   Martha Anne Graves, b.c. 1844, m. Kendrick Thayer, 28 Nov. 1858, d. 23 May 1924.

  116.   Calvin Graves, b.c. 1844, m. Elizabeth Graves, 5 July 1863.  This Elizabeth Graves is the dau. of Samuel Graves and Rachel Luther according to R‑50.  There were two different Calvin Graves who married two different Elizabeth Graves; it is unclear if the marriage date listed is for this Calvin Graves.

  117.   John Clark Graves, b.c. 1850.  Died around 6 years of age and bur. on grandfather Johnston Spencer’s farm in Why Not, NC.

+118.   Caroline Ada Graves, b.c. 1851, m. Noah Luck, d. 1877.

 

Rebecca Graves (18) was born about 1800 in NC, and died after 1870, probably in Clay Co., IN.  She married John Williams on 29 Oct. 1819 in Randolph Co., NC.  He was born about 1795 in NC, and died after 1870.  They moved from Randolph Co., NC to Indiana, and were recorded on the 1850 census in Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN, dwelling 15, page 293.  He was a farmer.  Their first seven children were born in NC, and the last four in Indiana.  This family was also recorded on the 1860 and 1870 censuses in Van Buren Twp., IN.

There is no proof that Rebecca was a daughter of Samuel Graves.  However, in the 1850 census for Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN, the family was recorded in dwelling 15, page 293, two houses away from Saul and Zylphy Vuncannon in dwelling 17, page 293.  Zylpha (Graves) Vuncannon was a daughter of Samuel Graves.  In 1850 they also lived close to Isaac Graves, brother of Zylpha and son of Samuel, who was in dwelling 122, page 300, of the same census.  It is also interesting to see that Rebecca and John had a son listed as Drewry (Andrew Jackson Graves) in the 1850 census, as did Isaac Graves.  If Rebecca was not a daughter of Samuel Graves, she was almost certainly a daughter of one of his brothers.  (R‑52)

James Graves (19) was born about 1805 in Jackson or Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN, and died after 1850.  He married Matilda ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She was born 1810-1820, and died before 1850.  James and his children were recorded twice on the 1850 census:  once in Menard Co., IL, Roll M432-120, p. 340 on 19 Oct. 1850, and once in Deep Creek, Clinton Co., IA, Roll M432-182, p. 204 on 31 Oct. 1850.  (R‑80, R‑201)

Isaac Graves (20) was born about 1808 in NC (probably Randolph Co.), died about 1854 at age 46 in Jefferson Twp., Andrew Co., MO, and was buried there in Green Cem.  He married Elizabeth Dickens (or Deakins or Decking per R‑17), daughter of John Dickens (or Deakins) and Elizabeth Committ, on 2 Jan. 1832 in Putnam Co., IN.  She was born 1815-1818 in KY, died 1863 or 1864 at age 48 in Andrew Co., MO, and was buried near Isaac in Green Cem., Andrew Co., MO.  Isaac probably moved with his parents and others from Randolph Co., NC to Clay Co., IN about 1831.  They apparently moved from Indiana to McLean Co., IL in 1852, and then to Andrew Co., MO by 1854.  All their children except the last one seem to have been born in Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN.  They were in the 1850 census for Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN, dwelling 122, page 300.  Living with them in 1850 was Sarah King, age 17.  (R‑17, R‑201)

Drewry W. Graves (22) was born 19 Nov. 1813 in NC, probably in Randolph Co., died 17 April 1883 in Plattsmouth, Cass Co., NE, and was buried in Pleasant Ridge Cem., Plattsmouth.  He first married Lucinda ‑‑‑‑‑‑, possibly in 1849 or 1850.  She was born 15 July 1820 in Indiana, died 4 Dec. 1863 in Plattsmouth, and was also buried in Pleasant Ridge Cem.  He married second Laura A. ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She was born about 1815 in NY, and died after 1880.  Drewry sold land in 1840, bought land in 1841, and had his property sold to satisfy claims against him in 1843, all in Clay Co., IN.  A newspaper account in The Plattsmouth Journal, Dec. 5, 1927, concerning the death of Drewry’s eldest child, Drewry M. Graves, states that the Drewry W. Graves family came from eastern Iowa with the Mormon migration to Utah, and when the Mormons arrived at Canesville (now Council Bluffs, IA) in 1855, they stopped there for the winter.  Learning that Samuel Martin, a distant relative of Drewry W. Graves’ wife, lived in Plattsmouth, the Graves family went there and settled.  Drewry was listed as a brick mason and stone mason in 1860 and 1870, and as a barber in the 1880 census.  (R‑201)

Elizabeth Graves (24) was born before 1790 in Randolph Co., NC, and died probably after 1843 based on the list of children.  She married Nathaniel King in 1818 in Randolph Co., NC (Book 1, p. 148).  He was born about 1796 in NC, and died after 1850 (listed on the 1850 census for Perry Co., AR).  This family migrated to central Arkansas by 1833, where they appear on the 1840 census for Conway Co. and the 1850 census for Perry Co.  Children Samuel through William were recorded with Nathaniel on the 1850 census, and children Mary Jane through William were born in AR.  The birth order for the children listed below was provided by R‑31 as written in his Volume II genealogy, King Family chapter, pp. 81-105.  (R‑31, R‑210)

  174.   James Addison King, b. 1838-1839; listed on the 1850 census for Perry Co., AR, but not listed by family tradition as a member of this family.

  175.   Corlton (or Carlton) B. King, b.c. 1839.

  176.   William C. King, b.c. 1843.  May not be Elizabeth’s son based on birthdate.  Lived with his brother Richard’s family in 1870 in Higgins, Perry Co, AR.

 

Sarah (“Sallie”) Graves (25) was born about 1790 in NC, and died 25 Aug. 1851.  She married James Brookshire, son of Mannering Brookshire II and Prudence ‑‑‑‑‑‑, about 1805.  He was born about 1783 in Pendleton District, Anderson Co., SC (per R‑87) and died 19 March 1864, probably in Marshall Co., AL (per R‑85).

According to “Genealogical Abstracts from Reported Deaths from The Nashville Christian Advocate 1850-1851” by Jonathan Kennon Thompson Smith, the following obituary appeared:

“SALLY BROOKSHIER daughter of Richard and Hannah Graves; born Randolph Co., N.C., Oct. 9, 1781; married James Brookshier, 1805 and moved to Ky., then to Rutherford Co., Tenn.; died August 25, 1851. Her daughter, PERMELIA CAROLINE BROOKSHIER, died Aug. 27, 1851.”

It appears that the birthdate for Sally is incorrect; Sally’s mother Hannah (Fincher) Graves was 81 on the 1850 census, born about 1769.  This family was recorded on the 1850 census in Marshall Co., AL, Roll M432-10, p. 253 on 13 Dec. 1850.  James was 67 and Sarah 60, both born NC.  Living with them were Rebecca, 23, Ellener J., 17, Permelia C., 17; their birthplaces were listed as AL.  Their first four children were born in NC, Graves Goodrich in KY, the next three in TN, and the last six in AL.

Information regarding these families was obtained from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Muskogee, OK.  A certified copy of the Choctaw Rolls, Mississippi, 1902, states that James Brookshire, whose Indian name was Old Blue Nose, and his wife, Sallie Graves, whose Indian name was Choyata, recorded spelling O-Ha-Ya, were both half Choctaw.

A story by Harper Haynes, submitted by R‑84, reads: “When Andrew Young Haynes and Sally (Sarah) came to Texas, they left her father (James Brookshire) in Mississippi.  When he was 96 years old, he rode to Texas alone on an undersized mule.  He lived to be 104 years old.”  (R‑84, R‑85, R‑87, R‑89, R‑90)

William Wallace Graves (26) was born about 1791 in NC, and died in 1863 in Greene Co., MO.  He married Nancy Harvey on 18 Nov. 1813 in Greene Co., MO.  She was born about 1796 in NC, and died after 1870 in Greene Co., MO; as recorded on the 1860 census, she was living with daughter Nancy in Center Twp., Greene Co., MO, age 74.  They were both listed on the 1850 Clay Co., MO census living next to their son Richard.  They were also listed on the 1860 Greene Co., MO census in Center Twp.  Living with them was their daughter Nancy Grimet [sic] and grandchildren Hannah Kimmons, age 7, Margaret Grimet, age 2, and James Grimet, age 1.  They were both buried in Prospect Cem., Plano, Greene Co., MO.  Their children were born in Indiana.

According to R‑50, Samuel and Rachel Luther Graves preserved a letter from William written in 1850 from Greene Co., MO.  The letter identified a brother Richard, then living in the West, a son Joel and daughter Nancy.  He sent greetings to his relatives still in NC: his mother, then living with Samuel, his brother Samuel and family, his brother Leonard and family, brother-in-law Joel Lucas and family, and brother Benjamin Graves.

There is some question that the John Graves below is the son of this William Graves.  (R‑23, R‑25, R‑34, R‑44, R‑50)

Benjamin Graves (27) was born about 1795, according to census records, and died after 22 Aug. 1871 in Montgomery Co., NC.  He first married Elizabeth Graves on 25 April 1822 in Randolph Co., NC  Bondsman was Richard Graves.  She was not listed on the 1850 census; however Nancy Woolever is shown as age 30, living with the family.  He married second Nancy Woolever on 29 (or 26) Aug. 1852.  She was born about 1820 and died about 1859.  She was a daughter of Henry Woolever and Anna Barbary Luther, who were married in 1810.  Nancy filed for divorce in Feb. 1856 in Montgomery Co., NC claiming “her said husband commenced a course of cruel treatment towards her and actually beat and abused her so badly that she was compelled on several occasions to leave her home and family”; the divorce was granted 11 Sept. 1858 “after a full investigation of the entire case, we unanimously agreed, and do hereby render our award to be “That the defendant do pay the plaintiff, nothing, and that the plaintiff Nancy Graves do pay all the costs of said suit.”

The children of Henry and Anna were Mary or Martha, b. 1811, m. Thomas Presnell; Jean, b. 1813, d. young; Michael, b. 1814, m. Sarah Ashworth; Deborah, b. 1816, m. Harvey Presnell; Nancy, b. 1820, m.

Mary Ann (“Polly”) Graves (28) was born 31 Oct. 1799 (from her gravestone) in Randolph Co., NC, and died 16 April 1890 in Wood Twp., Clark Co., IN.  She married Joseph Mullen Nicholson, son of Zachariah D. Nicholson and his second wife Sarah Mary Harvey (she may just have been named Sarah, but was called Mary by her family) (or Elisabeth Pritchard per R‑29), in 1816 in Randolph Co., NC.  He was born 4 Jan. 1795 in Randolph Co., NC, and died 21 March 1876 in Wood Twp., IN.  They were both buried in Pleasant Ridge Cem., Wood Twp., IN.

They moved from North Carolina to Indiana in 1816.  Joseph was a Quaker but later joined the Christian Church of Greenville, IN.  Their first 3 children were born in Crawford Co., IN and the others in Clark Co., IN.  R‑29 gives birthplace for Nancy as Clark Co., IN.  (R‑4, R‑21, R‑29)

John Graves (29) was born about 1800 in Troy, Montgomery Co., NC (just a few miles south of the Randolph Co. line), and died 24 April 1843 near Harmony, Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN.  According to R‑50, John was born on the family’s home farm in Randolph Co.  He married Mary (“Polly”) Smitherman, daughter of Samuel Smitherman and Margaret ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 7 Oct. 1824 in Randolph Co., NC (Book 1, p. 97); Bondsman was Stephen Lowder[milk], and Hugh McCain was the witness to the ceremony.  Polly was born in 1805 in Troy, and died 17 Dec. 1847 near Harmony, IN.  Some information on the Smitherman family originally taken from Pinhook to Brazil appears to be incorrect; it has been amended by subsequent research documented by R‑17.  However, the quoted material from the book remains (with some corrections) in the next paragraph.  According to The Heritage of Montgomery County North Carolina 1981, Samuel Smitherman had two sons, Jesse Cox Smitherman, b. 11 May 1818, died 12 Dec. 1883, and Noah Smitherman, b. 1806, died 28 Feb. 1876.  R‑17’s research included will information for Samuel Smitherman with the list of his children:  Jesse Smitherman, Noah Smitherman, Nancy Smitherman Spencer (wife of Harbert/Herbert Spencer), and Mary Smitherman Graves.

According to Nelle Hubbard in Pinhook to Brazil: “After the death of Noah Smitherman in Troy, NC, my grandmother, Rebecca Graves Hendrix, received a notice, as well as her brothers and sisters, alike, to appear in North Carolina, and to claim their share of the estate of Noah Smitherman as he had left a fortune, and it was to be divided.  As the daughter, Nancy [sic] Smitherman Graves, had preceded her father in death, her share was inherited by her children.  [Samuel Smitherman, Polly’s father, died in May 1836 and did not die before her.]  At the time they were to go my grandmother was sick, so Grandfather John Hendrix represented his wife, then with 6 of the Graves children they traveled to Troy, NC, and were given their proportionate shares, and they returned home with all gold money as that was the way of settlement.  Their valises were very heavy and full of gold.  This was such a thrill for the sons and daughters that the story will be carried along through generations.”

The 1850 census for Van Buren Twp., Clay Co., IN, lists their children Margaret and John W. in the household of George and Elizabeth Cornwell, dwelling 114, page 300, children Noah and Sarah in the household of their sister [Mary] Jane Williams, dwelling 123, page 301, and Samuel with his sister Nancy Douglas’s family in Dick Johnson, Clay Co., IN.  A Noah Graves, age 8, born Indiana, was also recorded with them; this is probably a second entry for the Noah below.  All the children were born in Indiana.  (R‑17, R‑28, R‑35, R‑40, R‑50, R‑201, R‑205)

  225.   Jesse Smitherman Graves, b. 30 July 1842 (Clay Co., IN), never married.  He traveled through the Southwest, died, and was buried in that part of the country.

 

Leonard Graves (30) was born about 1806 in NC and died in Indiana.  He married Sally Luther, daughter of Jacob Luther, Jr. and Rachel Callicott, on 18 Aug. 1827 in Randolph Co., NC.  She was born about 1812 in NC.  This family was listed in the 1840 census of Montgomery Co., NC.  Leonard sold land to this brother-in-law, Joel Lucas, in 1850 in Montgomery Co., NC, then he and Sally went “West” to Indiana from Randolph Co., NC after 1850.

None of this family has yet been found in the 1850 census.  Irvin is believed to be a son because he was living with Samuel Graves in the 1860 census for Washington Twp., Cedar Co., MO, and Wilburn was living in the same township in 1870, 1880 and 1900.  All their children were born in NC.

It is believed by some that a daughter was Rachel Graves of genealogy 55, and John Franklin Graves of genealogy 30 might have been another son.  (R‑44, R‑50,R‑101, R‑208, R‑209)

Richard Graves, Jr. (32) was born about 1810 in NC, and died after 1880.  He married Agnes (“Agga”) Graves (#254), daughter of Leonard Graves, Jr. (#35) and Mary Jordan Callicott, on 23 Nov. 1833 in Randolph Co., NC as recorded in the Randolph County Marriage Bonds List, Book 1, p. 97, and, according to R‑50, as stated in a letter written by Martha Jansen in 1967.  Samuel Graves was the bondsmen and Hugh McCain the witness.  Agnes Graves was born about 1818 in NC, and died after 1878 in Montgomery Co., IN.  R‑50 states Richard and Agnes moved before 1836 to Montgomery Co., IN.  She also states that this Richard was often confused with Richard (#38), son of Leonard Graves, Sr.

The family settled in Scott Twp., Montgomery Co., IN.  Agnes and Richard apparently divorced between 1860 and 1870.  When the Atlas of Montgomery County, Indiana was printed in 1878, Agnes and her son John lived on the family farm.  Agnes was listed as Agnes “Granes” on the Family Search (LDS) 1880 United States Census and National Index living in Clark, Montgomery Co., IN.  She was a 60-year old divorcée, born about 1820, still living with her widowed son, John.  Richard married second Sarah A. Bryant on 4 Oct. 1867 in Clay Co., IN.  Sarah was born about 1845 in Indiana; her parents were born in NC.  They were recorded in the 1870 and 1880 censuses in Clark, Montgomery Co., IN.  (R‑50, R‑44, R‑208, R‑209)

Samuel Graves (33) was born 16 July 1812 in Randolph Co., NC, and died sometime between 23 Oct. and 25 Nov. 1887.  He married Rachel Luther, daughter of Jacob Luther, Jr. and Rachel Callicott, on 12 Aug. 1836 in Randolph Co., NC (Book 1, p. 98); George Auman was the bondsman.  She was born 19 Feb. 1814 and died 16 Feb. 1857, both in Randolph Co.  Rachel was a sister of Sally Luther who married Samuel’s brother Leonard.  Both Samuel and Rachel were buried near their home west of Highway 134, per R‑50.

Jacob Luther, Jr. and Rachel Callicott were married 18 May 1809 in Randolph Co., NC.  Rachel was a daughter of Beverley Callicott and Priscilla ‑‑‑‑‑‑.

Samuel’s parents, Richard and Hannah Fincher Graves, were living with him by 1840, and in 1841 they deeded the family lands, including several adjoining tracts (totaling 664 acres) on the Little River, and a slave woman Mary to him, retaining only a life interest in the property.

The following children were listed in the 1850 census for Randolph Co., except for Agnes who was born later.  Much of this information is from Miss Ruth Ann Shaw, 1742 Pleasant St., Asheboro, NC 27203, who has the family Bible of Samuel Graves, and from Martha Prevost who copied Randolph Co., NC marriage bonds for R‑7.

All the children were born in Pisgah, Randolph Co., NC.  Only Benjamin and Margaret produced grandchildren; the other children left no descendants.  (R‑7, R‑10, R‑31, R‑35, R-50, R‑201, R‑202, R‑210)

Richard’s picture is shown here.  (R‑1, R‑7, R‑31, R‑35, R‑50, R‑75, R‑201)

From the History of Lawrence, Orange & Washington Counties, Indiana, by Goodspeed Brothers & Company, Chicago, 1884, page 893, Pierce Township, Washington County, Ind., Biographical Sketches:

"THOMAS GRAVES, the seventh of a family of eleven children born to John and Margaret (Brookshire) Graves, who were natives of Randolph Co., North Carolina, was born April 21, 1823, in the same county as his parents.  In 1849 the family came to Washington County, Indiana, and here the parents of our subject died.  Thomas Graves remained on a farm in Montgomery County, this state, until about twenty-six years of age, in youth receiving only such education as was obtainable at that early day.  March 14, 1850, his marriage with Amanda Cravens was solemnized, and two children were born to them, only one - William A., who was born August 18, 1851 and married Mary Elrod, yet living; James A., born Aug. 27, 1854, and died April 1, 1860, is the one deceased.  July 3, 1865, the mother died, and November 22, 1866, Mr. Graves married Elizabeth Baker, by whom he was the father of these two children: Clara E., born Feb. 14, 1869, and Woodford, born January 5, 1874, died October 16, 1878.  As a farmer Mr. Graves has been hard-working and economical, and by industry has secured 500 acres of land.  In politics he acts in harmony with the Republican party, whose principles he advocates."

The birth date given in this sketch does not agree with that on his tombstone, so the tombstone date of April 23, 1821 was used in a DAR application.

John Cravens, father of Amanda Cravens, died Nov. 15, 1879, age 83 years, 7 months, 12 days, according to Hardin Family Cemetery, Madison Township, Washington Co., IN, copied by Mrs. Lois Brown Carter, Indiana Magazine of History, vol. 35, 1939, p. 119.  (R‑43, R‑49, R‑201, R‑207)

CHILDREN OF MARY ANN GRAVES (13) AND STEPHEN A. LOWDERMILK

Elizabeth Ann Lowdermilk (79) was born 30 March 1813 in Randolph Co., NC, and died 19 Feb. 1893 in Clay Co., IN.  She married John T. Tucker, son of Nathaniel T. Tucker and Martha (“Pattie”) Lawrence, on 20 Nov. 1830 in Randolph Co., NC.  He was born 21 June 1810 in Montgomery Co., NC, and died 5 Oct. 1880 in Clay Co., IN.  They were both buried on the Grandma Tucker place, south of State Road 46, one mile west of Cory on what is now the McIntosh farm in Clay Co., IN.  Their grave has a large stone surrounded by a strong fence of iron pipe, and the inscription is still legible.

John learned the trade of blacksmith in Montgomery Co., NC.  He moved to Indiana around 1831, along with his father-in-law Stephen A. Lowdermilk, making an overland trip in a wagon drawn by six horses.  He took with him his bride and all his worldly possessions.

He purchased 80 acres in Jackson Twp., when the land was still primeval wilderness (see p. 423, History of Clay Co., by Travis).

He built a log cabin of the typical pioneer style with stick and clay, a chimney, a roof that was covered with rived boards, and no door, using a quilt in its place.

One night while John was away, wolves came and tried to get his calf, but Elizabeth went out and scared the wolves into leaving.  John is credited with planting the first orchard in the area.  He was both a farmer and a blacksmith.

John’s father was General Nathaniel Tucker.  There are some discrepancies regarding Nathaniel.  The History of Clay Co. states: “He was, as far as known, a life-long resident of Montgomery Co., NC.”  However, Dorothy Clark (a local Clay Co. historian), in an article of 15 Jan. 1961, says, “He came to Indiana with his son and others in 1830.”  Dorothy Clark is believed to be in error. There are also many references to Nathaniel Tucker being a General in the War of 1812.  In the book Muster Rolls of the Soldiers of the War of 1812: Detached from the Militia of N.C. in 1812 and 1814 is found an entry with the following information: Number: 1, Name: Nathaniel Tucker, Rank: Captain, Name of Federally Detached Unit: 1st Brigade, 4th Regt., 6th Co.  Nathaniel’s father was William and his mother was Matilda.  (R‑6, R‑9, R‑16, R‑201)

Agnes Catherine, daughter of George and Jane Cooper, was born Dec. 25, 1854, and was married to Mark Boling, Feb. 12, 1877, on a farm near Ladoga.

When a girl she joined the Christian church at Ladoga, but after all her children united with the Methodist church, during Rev. A. W. Wood's pastorate she changed her membership to that church and though she was not a regular attendant, she was a devoted christian.  She was a loving wife and mother whose only thought in life was the welfare of her children.  No sacrifice was too great for her to make for them.  She has gone to join her father, mother and brother in a land where there is no suffering.

Sarah Lee (“Sallie”) Brookshire (185) was born 5 May 1823 in Rutherford Co., TN, and died 21 March 1896 in Roby, Fisher Co., TX.  She married Andrew Young Haynes, son of John Haynes and Nancy Nelson, on 19 Jan. 1841 in Morgan Co., AL.  He was born 17 July 1812 in SC, and died 6 Oct. 1900 in Roby, Fisher Co., TX.  They were both buried in the Roby Cem., Fisher Co., TX.  Their gravestone inscriptions[31] are: A. Y. Haynes, 7/17/1812-10/6/1900, S. L. wife of A. Y. Haynes, 5/5/1823-3/21/1896, “Our father & mother are gone, They lie beneath the sod. Dear parents though we miss you much, We know you rest with God.”

Andrew Young Haynes first married Amelia B. Johnston on 4 June 1837 in Carroll, MS as recorded in “Hunting for Bears, Inc.,” Attala Co., MS, 1892-1900.  They had two children: one born in 1838 and one born in 1840. Both children died at birth.  The information regarding Andrew Young Haynes being Cherokee Indian has not yet been proven, but it does appear that he was part Cherokee.  He had a college education and was a large land owner in the Shenandoah Valley.  The story that has been told is that he left Tennessee to escape “The Trail of Tears”.  They supposedly lived for many years in Blount Co., AL, and then moved to Pontotoc, Mississippi.  They were recorded on the 1850 census in Pontotoc Co., MS.  They lived near a trading place called Tupelo, MS.  (However, since only their second child was born in Blount Co., AL, it looks as if they only lived there a short time.)  In 1871 they moved the family to Ferris, Ellis Co., TX by wagon train.  They lived in Ellis Co., then purchased eight sections of land in Fisher Co., TX.

Andrew Young Haynes was known to have been a man of very few words, but he often spoke with bitterness about the U.S. breaking the treaty with the Indians.  He continued to wear his Indian blanket and to raise paint horses as long as he lived.  He taught his sons never to take land from the U.S. government because if they did they would lose their freedom.

Andrew and three sons went to Fisher Co., TX in 1880.  Alexander Graves, son of Andrew, owned the land north of what is now Main Street in Rotan.  The other two sons that purchased land in Fisher Co. at that time were Harper and Warren Haynes.

The Haynes brothers built the Alright school house, which was later destroyed by fire.  They then built the White Flat school house.  This building was used as a church.  When the Haynes land was sold, the railroad purchased a large number of acres.  After the death of Sarah Haynes, Andrew went to live with Alexandra Graves Haynes in Fisher Co., TX.

It is told that the Haynes children went to Muskogee, OK, to testify before the Dawes Commission to try to regain some land by proving their Indian heritage.  Georgia Haynes Davis testified on 15 Dec. 1902.  At the end of Georgia’s testimony, the following statement appeared:  “This applicant has the appearance of being descended from white parentage; has brown hair, grey eyes, medium fair complexion; does not understand the Choctaw language and has no knowledge of any compliance on the part of her Choctaw ancestors.”  Her testimony along with that of her siblings is recorded on film in the National Archives.

This family was recorded on the 1850 census in Pontotoc Co., MS, Roll M432-380, p. 110B, the 1860 census in Ellistown, Pontotoc Co., MS, Roll M655-540, p. 117, the 1870 census in Ellistown, Lee Co., MS, Roll M593-736, p. 416, and the 1880 census in Precinct 2, Ellis Co., TX.  Children Harrison through Carolina were born in MS and Warren through Georgia were born in MS.  (R‑84, R‑85, R‑89)

Richard Graves[32] (193) was born about 1820 (or 1823-24) in IN, and died after 1880, probably in Sumner Co., KS according to R‑24.  He married Elizabeth Dorrells (or Dorrell or Dorrill) on 28 May 1846 in Greene Co., MO (Book A, p. 141).  She was born about 1822 in IN and died before 1870, possibly in KS.

They were listed in the 1850 census for Greene Co., IN, but moved to Clay Co., MO after the 1850 census because of the Kansas/Missouri wars.  There they had contact with Franklin Graves who founded the first Baptist Church in Clay Co., MO, along with Robert James (father of Jesse James).  Was Franklin Graves related to Richard Graves?  Franklin Graves was in IN in the 1840’s, Clay Co., MO, 1846-1898, and died 1898 in Clay Co., MO.  According to family oral history, the James boys plowed the fields for the Graves farm until they started on their infamous journey robbing trains.

Richard Graves was in the 1870 census for Gore Twp., Sumner Co., KS, without Elizabeth, so she may have died.  Their first 4 children were born in MO, and the last 2 in KS.

CHILDREN OF BENJAMIN GRAVES (27)

Richard Graves (197) was born about 1828-1832 in Randolph Co. (or Montgomery Co.), NC.  He lived in Randolph Co., enlisted 8 March 1862 in Co. I, 22nd Regt., NC Troops, C.S.A., as a private, and died on or about 20 June 1862 at or near Danville, VA of measles (“rubeola”), after the Battle of Seven Pines.

He died probably 1-1/2 miles southwest of what is now downtown Danville.  According to F. Lawrence McFall, Jr., of Danville, Richard was wounded and contracted rubeola in a field hospital.  Even though 750 Confederate troops died there, there is presently no monument, and the area was bulldozed in the 1930’s for a middle-class housing development.

Richard married Nancy Jane Purdue, called Jane.  She was born in May 1827 in Cheraw, Chesterfield Co., SC, died after 1901, and was buried in Big Oak Church, Montgomery Co., NC.  According to the 1900 census, she had five children and four were living.  She first married ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Purvis (?).

Jane had to struggle for survival, farming to keep the children and herself alive.  The youngest daughter of Jane’s granddaughter, Louzinia Lucas’s Ida, tells of when Jane had to go for supplies (i.e., food staples) during the Civil War years.  On the way home Jane was stopped by soldiers who planned to take her supplies.  Jane pleaded with them, saying that she had little children to feed and they would starve.  Ida Lucas said that the soldier in charge made the men let Jane go when Jane said that her husband was away fighting the war just like them.  Jane applied for Widow’s Pension Act of 1885 and 1901; both were approved.

Their children were born in Montgomery Co., NC. 

They were listed on the 1870 census for Richmond, Randolph Co., NC, living near Tyson Boling and Charles H. Boling.  (R‑14)

Douglas on 24 Feb. 1848 in Indiana.  His first wife was Lydia Hendrix, the mother of two boys, and the daughter of John Hendrix, Sr.  Nancy Ann Graves was a sister of Rebecca, who married John Hendrix, Jr.  Nancy raised the two children left motherless by the death of Lydia, one of whom was probably Alexander, shown with them on the 1850 census.  James Douglas died 5 Dec. 1864.  According to Pinhook to Brazil, they had nine children, three of whom had died before James’ death.  Also living with Nancy and James at the time of the 1850 census in Jackson Twp., Clay Co., IN were her brothers, Noah Graves, age 8 and Samuel Graves, age 22, both born in Indiana.

Nancy Ann married second George Williams, son of George Williams and Sarah Presnell, on 12 Sept. 1866 in Clay Co., IN.  He married first Hannah ‑‑‑‑‑‑; they were recorded on the 1860 census in Van Buren, Clay Co., IN with their three children.  He was born about 1831 in NC, and died 12 Aug. 1872.  Nancy and George were recorded on the 1870 census in Van Buren, IN with children Theodore, 16, Sarah E., 12, Mary E., 9, Charles, 6, and Raney, 10/12.  All were listed with the surname Williams.  She married for the third time Joseph P. Montgomery on 30 Jan. 1878 in Clay Co., IN.  He had 5 children by a former marriage.  Thus she served as a mother to 22 children, as she reared another child with no family ties.  There were 6 other children that she cared for over long periods, and it was always stated that she mothered 28 children.

She united with the United Brethren church in 1869, and always remained a constant worker.  The church stands today, serving the younger generations, in what was called Benwood.  Her funeral services were held at the Mt. Lebanon church, conducted by the Rev. J. W. Nye.  A large audience attested to the high esteem in which she was held by the community.  Interment was in the Brazil cemetery.

The vicinity of Benwood and all that part of Van Buren township, Clay Co., IN, was settled by the parents of the Graveses and Williamses, who have been life-long friends of the Hendrixes; their families intermarried.  The ancestors came from the Carolinas at about the same time, and they were from the same communities in the Carolinas and Virginia.  The family members also fought in the Rev. War together.  (R‑17, R‑32, R‑37, R‑205)

James W. Graves (219) was born 22 Jan. 1831 in Clay Co., IN, and died 6 Sept. 1892 in Reelsville, Putnam Co., IN.  He married Martha Elizabeth Lawson, called Elizabeth or Betsey, on 17 Nov. 1853 in Greencastle, Putnam Co., IN.  She was born in July 1835 in Indiana, and died 4 Oct. 1894 in Harmony, Clay Co., IN.  Their children were born in Clay Co., IN.

According to his pension file from the National Archives, James Graves enlisted in the Civil War at Indianapolis, IN and was enrolled on 8 Feb. 1864 in Co. B, 148th Regt., Indiana infantry as a private.  This unit was commanded by Colonel Ruckle.  James was honorably discharged at Indianapolis on 5 Sept. 1865.  His papers indicated that James was disabled by chronic diarrhea around July 1864 in Tennessee.  When he applied for his pension, he was still suffering from “Chronic Diarrhea, Piles, and disease of one of his legs”.  After James’ death, while she was living in Washington Twp., Putnam Co., IN, Elizabeth applied for a widow’s pension.  Two children were living with her at that time, a minor daughter Elizabeth, probably the Lizzie born in 1878, and Laura Graves.  After her mother’s death in 1894, Elizabeth applied for the pension on the grounds that she was still a minor child of James and Elizabeth Graves; at that time daughter Elizabeth was married to G. Thomas.

According to R‑18, there is a family story that Jesse James and his outlaw gang visited the Clay Co. farm of James and Elizabeth to water their horses.  They were friendly and didn’t cause any trouble for the Graves family.  (R‑17, R‑18, R‑96)

Rebecca Smitherman Graves (220) was born 11 Jan. 1833 in Clay Co., IN, and died 29 July 1883.  According to R‑17, Rebecca’s tombstone reads “Rebecca F. Graves dau. of J.& M. Graves – wife of John Hendrix, b. 1/11/1833 d. 7/29/1883”.  There seems to be no proof that her middle name was Smitherman as stated in Pinhook to Brazil.  She married John Hendrix, Jr., fourth child of John Hendrix and Nancy Whitaker, on 1 April 1852.  He was born 29 Feb. 1828 in Wayne Co., IN, four miles south of Centerville, IN, and died 11 May 1910.

He was a man of high principles, honest in all his dealings and loved by all, and had a host of acquaintances.  He started as a blacksmith, was later a manufacturer, and was finally a merchant, having the largest and most complete hardware store in Brazil, in partnership with his brother, Eli.  Both John and Rebecca belonged to the Presbyterian Church and were very liberal in their donations and entertainment of the visiting clergy.  His father, John, Sr., was the foundation stone of the first church, and through his generosity the church survived the long, fought-for existence.

John, Jr., possessed quick, decisive judgement, was of a nervous temperament, and his answers of “yes” or “no” were demanded.  His large credit business, established with few losses, show him to be a man of talent.

After Rebecca’s death, he married a school teacher, Miss Mary Carter, in 1885.  She outlived him by many years, passing away in Aug. 1928, with burial at Highland Lawn, Terre Haute, IN.  They had no children, but reared a niece, Lucy Hendrix, daughter of Frank Hendrix.  (R‑17, R‑205)

Noah Smitherman Graves (222) was born 6 March 1836 (or 1838) on the farm near Harmony, Clay Co., IN, that was taken up as government land.  The land was still owned in 1936 by his descendants.  Quite a settlement of the families of the brothers and sisters is (or was) in and around the town of Benwood.  Although Noah moved away to Kansas, he continued to be very attached to the old home place.  He died 16 Jan. 1884 and was buried in Maple Hill, Wabaunsee Co., KS.

He married Laura Eugenia Barns in 1867.  She was born 14 June 1850 in Baltimore, MD, and died in Feb. 1933 at her daughter Dora’s home in Vero, FL..  After their marriage they lived in Brazil, IN, then later moved to Kansas City, MO.  Laura’s family were early settlers near the town of Harmony, IN.

He was listed twice on the 1850 census:  once as age 8 census living with his sister Nancy Graves Douglas’ family in Dick Johnson, Clay Co., IN, and second as age 12 living with his sister [Mary] Jane Williams’ family, in Van Buren, Clay Co., IN .  Noah and Laura were recorded on the 1870 census in Soldier, Shawnee Co., KS, where he was listed as age 32, and the 1880 census in Maple Hill, KS where he was listed as age 42.

After Noah’s death, Laura married Allen Reed about 1887.  To them was born one daughter, Constance, born 3 May 1888, who married Anthony Wayne Miller of Kansas City, MO.  They adopted two children and lived in Vero, FL.  (R‑205)

John Wesley Graves (223) was born 28 Jan. 1840 in Clay Co., IN, died 29 Aug. 1923 in Douglass, Butler Co., KS, and was buried in City Cem., Douglass, KS.  He married Evaline Stoner Wells of Greencastle, IN on 9 Nov. 1865.  She was known as Eva.  This family pioneered in the state of Kansas.  The farm that they bought proved to be over an oil pool and brought them much money.

In John W. Graves’ Declaration for Pension Papers for his Civil War service, dated 10 Feb. 1915, he stated he was living in Harmony, IN at the time he enrolled.  He enlisted in Indianapolis, IN on 11 Nov. 1864 as a private in Co. B, 2nd Regt. of the Indiana Cavalry.  He was honorably discharged in Edgfield, TN on 22 July 1865.  His enlistment record stated he was 24 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, his complexion was “dark”, eyes were “black”, and his hair was “black”.  The record also stated that he lived in Putnam Co., IN from July 1865 until Nov. 1867, Topeka, KS from Nov. 1867 until Jan. 1868, and then moved to Douglass, KS and lived there until his death.  When asked on his application if he had any children living, he listed only 25-year old William P. Graves and Chloe A. Graves, b. 2 Feb. 1883.  (R‑17, R‑205)

Sarah Ellen Graves (224) was born 28 Jan. 1840 in Clay Co., IN, and died 20 Feb. 1904 in Granite, VA.  She first married William F. Gaylord on 8 July 1860 in Clay Co., IN.  He was a soldier in the Civil War and was killed in battle.  They may not have had any children.  She married second Henry Hendrix, ninth child of John Hendrix and Nancy Whitaker, in Jan. 1863.  He was born 5 April 1841 in Wayne Co., IN, four miles south of Centerville, IN, and died 11 April 1920 at Johnson City, Washington Co., TN.

Henry was of the Whitaker type (his grandmother’s family), large of bone, light complexion, blue eyes, loved to read, and a good trader.  He was a good blacksmith and machinist.  He was in the carriage manufacturing business for years in Brazil, Clay Co., IN.  His loss of hearing, which seems to be hereditary in the Hendrix family, caused him to sell his business.  He purchased a large acreage in Virginia, near Crewe, Nottoway Co., and moved his family there.

He was a member of Gen. Lew Wallace’s Zouaves, the old 11th Regt., serving in Co. D, under Capt. Jabez Smith. After serving this Regiment and getting a discharge, he again enlisted in the 78th and was in the battle of Union Town, KY, where he was taken prisoner.  After hard fighting, Capt. Tilghman A. Howard was killed, and to this loss the company became panic-stricken, retreated and finally surrendered.  Henry was a great traveler and covered territory all over the U.S.  He was known far and wide, with a host of friends.  (R‑205)

CHILDREN OF LEONARD GRAVES AND SALLY LUTHER

Samuel Graves (226) was born about 1837 in NC, probably died 1860-1870, perhaps in the Civil War, and was buried in the Springfield National Cem.  He married Mary Ann Samsel, daughter of John Devault Samsel and Elizabeth Wolfe, on 14 April 1853 in Lawrence Co., MO.  She was born about 1838 in TN, and died 2 Jan. 1874 in Cedar Co., MO (probate record).  Wilburn E. Graves was the administrator of the estate of Mary Ann Samsel Graves in 1874.

The 1850 census for Grainger Co., TN, lists Mary Samsel, age 10, with parents Peter and Elizabeth Samsel.  Genealogies submitted to Ancestry.com’s World Tree give George Peter Samsel and Catherine Elizabeth Shelton as her parents.  However, living next to Samuel Graves and Mary in the 1860 census for Stockton, Washington Twp., Cedar Co., MO, is the family of John D. Sampsell and Elizabeth (perhaps Elizabeth remarried).  The 1870 census shows Mary and her 3 children still living in Washington Twp., Cedar Co., MO.  Samuel was a farmer.  All their children were born in MO.  (R‑101)

CHILDREN OF SAMUEL GRAVES (33) AND RACHEL LUTHER

Benjamin Franklin Graves (247), called Franklin, was born 12 Aug. 1838 in Randolph Co., NC, died 5 (or 4) July 1890 near Leeper, McClain Co., OK (formerly Pontotoc Co., Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory), and was buried near Leeper.

He married Sarah Ellen Wintersteen (or Winterstein), called Ellen, daughter of Jacob (“Jake”) Wintersteen (or Christian Winterstein and Mary Klepper per R‑13), on 18 Aug. 1864 in New Albany, Clark Co., IN.  The marriage license was issued 15 Aug. 1864, and they were married by Philip Bevan.  She was born 18 July 1847 (or 1841) in KY (or TN) (her death certificate says 1847 in KY), died 3 Jan. 1929 in Rising Star, Eastland Co., Texas, and was buried in Rising Star City Cem.  According to the 1860 Clark Co., IN census, Christian Winterstein was born in Germany and his wife Mary was born in Tennessee.

Their children, except for the last one who was born in Rising Star, TX, were born in Indiana, probably all at New Albany.  The information on their children was copied from Albert Graves’ Bible and sent by Hazel Bucy Brown and Florence C. Graves.

Benjamin may be placed in Randolph Co., NC in 1856 and in Goldsboro, NC in May 1862.  He moved from Randolph Co., NC to IN where he worked on the Joseph M. Nicholson farm until he was 21 years of age.  The Nicholson farm was aout 15 miles northwest of New Albany, IN, not far from where other members of the Graves family had settled.  He and his family then migrated from IN to Rising Star, TX in 1884 in company with other Graves relatives.  The group traveled by railroad as far as Cisco, TX and by wagons on to Rising Star.

From Rising Star, TX, Ben then went to Oklahoma where, on 5 July 1890, he was shot and killed.  The following accounts were printed in The Territorial Topic, Purcell, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory.

On p. 4, col. 4: “Attorneys Johnson and Galbrath of Oklahoma City are here defending the Graves boys for the killing of their father’s slayer, Henry Bowden.”

On p. 5, col. 6: “On last Saturday near Leeper, W. G. Graves [sic] was shot by Henry Bowden, and the latter by Sam Graves, both the injured men dying within two hours.  All the parties were from Rising Star, Texas, and had been cropping together on the Jones place.  Some difficulty arose between them in regard to the crop.  Bowden borrowed a winchester from a neighbor on Saturday morning and went to the field where two of the Graves boys were engaged in plowing cotton.  Here he met the old man, who had been out riding and had with him a shot gun that he always carried for the purpose of shooting small game.  They were joined by the boys and a heated discussion arose, in the course of which hard names were passed and Bowden attempted to shoot when the boys seized the gun.  In the scuffle that ensued the gun was discharged, the bullet striking the old man with fatal effect.  Bowden managed to fire two more shots without damage before the gun was taken from him.  One of the boys took the father’s shot gun and fired both loads in the air that it might not be used against them.  Bowden then advanced upon Sam Graves, who had his gun, evidently bent upon doing him damage, when Graves’ brother called to him to shoot him, which he did, inflicting the wounds from which he died later.

Mr. Graves was a highly respected gentleman about fifty years of age and leaves a wife and large family.  He was a member of the Masonic order and was buried on Sunday.  Bowden, who was about twenty-five years old and single, was also buried Sunday.  The parties had been working together about five years.”

On p. 5, col. 6, issue of July 17, 1890: “Court Notes. In Judge Hocker’s court last Saturday George and Sam Graves were committed to Paris jail for the killing of Henry Bowden at Leeper, July 5th.”

Character papers were signed by friends and neighbors to exonerate the two boys.  This notarized document was sent from Washington Co., Indiana, and it was signed by residents of Washington, Floyd, and Clark counties in Indiana.  This document was in the possession of Woodrow W. Harris, now deceased.

Purcell was in Indian Territory, being south of the dividing boundary of Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory.  Criminal cases from the district where Purcell was located were tried in Paris, Texas.  The repository for the trial records burned in 1916.  No duplicate records exist.  (R‑7, R‑10, R‑13, R‑47, R‑210)

Sarah Graves (256) was born in 1823[35] in Randolph Co., NC, died 20 (or 29) Feb. 1896 in Ladoga, Montgomery Co., IN, and was buried in the Ladoga Cem., Ladoga, IN.  The Ladoga Cem. record states her age as 72 years, 8 months and 28 days, however, the Montgomery Co. Health Dept. death record gives her date of death as 20 Feb. 1896, age 77 although the handwriting is difficult to read.  Recorded on her death record were her parents, Leonard Graves and Mary Callicott of NC.  She married Drake Brookshire, son of Joel Brookshire and Sarah Slack (or Slock), on 9 Nov. 1841 in Montgomery Co., IN.  He was born 27 Feb. 1819 in Randolph Co., NC, died 24 May 1913, and was also buried in Ladoga Cem.  Their children were born in Indiana.  The Drake Brookshire family was recorded in Montgomery Co., IN in 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880; Sarah was listed as the wife 1850-1870, born NC, and the wife was listed as Mary in 1880, born NC with the approximate age that Sarah would have been, so perhaps there was a recording error.  (R‑44, R‑76)

She was born 20 Aug. 1851 in IN, and died 1 Nov. 1902 in Washington Co., IN.  They were in the 1880 and 1900 censuses for Jackson Twp., Washington Co., IN.  In 1870, Alice, 18, was living with her parents in Polk Twp., Washington Co., IN.  In the same township was William H. Graves, 24, miller, living with the family of Manassah Graybill, 49, miller.  Although there is not absolute proof that this is the William H. Graves who married Alice Motsinger, and that he was the one who was a son of Richard Graves and Jane Williams, the circumstantial evidence is very strong.  Manassah Graybill’s wife was Mary Graves, William’s aunt.  A Motsinger family (Nathan Motsinger) lived next to William’s uncle, Wade Graves, in Washington Co., IN.  William and Alice lived in the same township in 1870, and in 1880 they were still living nearby in the same county.  (R‑41, R‑98)

William Stoops was a son of Moses Brown Stoops and Rebecca Porter who came from Clermont Co., OH.  Mary Laycock, born in Ohio, was a daughter of Reuben Laycock and Sarah Jordan.  Mariah had 7 brothers and sisters:  Francis Marion, Mary Melissa, Moses Brown, Maria J., William Newton, John R., and Martha Belle Stoops.

Solomon and Mariah Jane Tucker had an estate known as “The Lily Dale Farm.”  He was a stalwart Republican.

Solomon descended from two prominent pioneer families of Clay Co., IN.  He was a soldier in the Civil War, a successful farmer, and an honored and respected resident of Perry Twp.  For more information, see History of Clay Co. by Travis, pages 415-530.

The 1896 Encyclopedic Dictionary of Clay Co. stated that he owned 120 acres of land, received his mail from the Cory Post Office, was located 14 miles south of the Court House, 2 miles south of the Post Office in Perry Twp., born 1837 in Vigo Co., and was a farmer.

From Margaret Tucker Asay:  “On Sept. 5, 1861, Solomon enlisted in Co. H, 31st Ind. Volunteer Infantry, was mustered in as Corporal and, with the exception of 36 days that he was held prisoner of the enemy and four weeks that he was confined to the hospital, he was with his regiment, taking part in all its marches, campaigns, and battles, and with his comrades.  He was honorably discharged 15 Sept. 1864.

At the Battle of Stone River, he with 900 brave soldiers was captured and taken to Libby Prison, where he was confined 16 days.  He was then transferred to City Point, from there being taken to Annapolis and then to Indianapolis, where he was exchanged, after which he joined his command at Cripple Creek, Tenn.  The more important engagements in which he participated were those at Fort Donelson, where after being twice wounded, he was taken to the Marine Hospital at Evansville, and continued there for four weeks.  At Shiloh, where he had command of the headquarters of General Crufts; the siege of Corenth; the battles of Inka, Perryville, and Chickamauga; the various engagements during the march to Atlanta, and the siege of that city.  Very soon after the capture of Atlanta, Solomon’s enlistment expired and he returned home.  During his life as a soldier he did service in Kentucky, Tenn., Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Virginia.  He kept a diary giving minute details of each day’s proceedings, and from it we find that he marched with his comrades eighteen thousand, five hundred and sixty five miles.  He was a farmer and a cabinet maker.”  (R‑9, R‑16)
