DESCENDANTS OF PARENTS OF WILLIAM LYNCH GRAVES GRAVES OF ALBEMARLE CO., VA

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

‑‑‑‑‑‑ Graves (1) may have been born about 1750.  It is possible that he was Snead Graves (see genealogy 906).  However, since there is some belief that the father of William Lynch Graves was a John Graves, it is possible that Snead was born slightly earlier and was the grandfather.

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF JOHN OR SNEAD GRAVES (1)

William Lynch Graves (2), called Lynch, was born 1789 and died 1 Sept. 1853.  He moved to Madison Co., Tenn. from Albemarle Co., Va. about 1829.  William L. Graves paid taxes in Madison Co. in 1829 and 1830.  However, he is not in the 1830 Madison Co. census.  Apparently he was missed in the census, since he has not been found in any other 1830 census.

Mr. Fonville thinks that the father of William L. was John Graves, who was in the 1810 Albemarle Co. census, along with William Turner, the father of William's wife, Sarah H. Turner.  John Graves and William Turner bought land together "on the headwaters of the Hardware River" in Albemarle Co. in the early 1800's.  William C. Turner, Jr. and William Turner, Sr. were witnesses when John Graves gave his daughter Ann (or Anna) permission to marry on 3 March 1812.  John Graves and wife in 1810 had 2 sons and 2 daughters in the census.  Mr. Fonville thinks the sons were William L. Graves and Robert Graves, who was sueing William Tullock on 10 Aug. 1809.  (William Graves sued Robert Tullock on 9 March 1809 in Albemarle Co.)  One daughter was Anna (or Ann) who married John Spears on 3 March 1812.  The name of the other daughter is not known.

Who was this John Graves?  Could he have been from Caroline Co., Va.?  13 Nov. 1751, Book 1, page 395, Albemarle Co., Va. Wills and Deeds reads like this:  John Graves of Caroline Co. to Thomas Parks of St. Ann's Parish of Albemarle Co. land in St. Ann's Parish, 400 acres bonded by Benjamin Stenneke (?).  John Graves signed with an X.  Release of deed said John Graves of Albemarle Co. and Thomas Sparks of same.  10 Oct. 1751, Book 1, page 366, Wills and Deeds reads like this:  John Graves of Albemarle sells to William Gonge (?) of Hanover Co. land on north branch of James River ‑‑‑ bordered by John Morris, William Randolph, and Charles Lynch.  Wit. by John Morris, Francis (X) Graves, Mary Morris, and William Gooch, Jr.  Could this John be the father of William Lynch Graves born 1789 in Albemarle?  It seems more likely that John Graves was a grandfather of William Lynch Graves, considering that he was an adult in 1751, perhaps born around 1730.  The last mention of John Graves that Mr. Fonville has found in Albemarle Co. is in Order Book 37 (for 1826).  He felt that if the descendants of this John Graves of Albemarle Co. (Caroline Co.) of 1751 could be proven, the descendants of William Lynch Graves might be shown to descend from Capt. Thomas Graves, the 1608 settler in Jamestown, Va.  However, it has since been proven by DNA testing that this part of the Graves family is not descended from Capt. Thomas Graves.

The John Graves who is suggested above as the father of William Lynch Graves is shown in the Capt. Thomas Graves of VA genealogy (gen. 169) to descend as follows: Thomas1, John2, Ralph3, Ralph4, John5, John6, John7.  However, William Lynch Graves and his siblings can not possibly be descended from Capt. Thomas Graves, since DNA tests of descendants have shown that they are of two separate ancestrie (as mentioned in the previous paragraph)s.  One of the problems is that there are too many men named John Graves with too little conclusive documentation.

Charles Lynch owned land on the Hardware River, on the Rivanna, on the Mechum, and in 1750 on the James River opposite Lynchburg.  He died in 1753.  His wife, Sarah, joined the Friends, and a Quaker Meeting House called South River was built in 1754 on her land on Lynch's Creek.  Their children were John, founder of Lynchburg, and Charles.  Charles was the clerk of the South River Meeting until the beginning of the political ferment prior to the Revolution, when his patriotism surmounted the principles he had espoused, and he became a Col. in the Rev. Army.  His busy promptitude in dealing with outlaws and violent Tories during those times gave rise to the expression Lynch Law.  (This taken from History of Albemarle.)

Other records:

11 April 1793, Amelia Co., Va.  John Graves sold land to Samuel Dyer.  Wit.: William Turner ....

29 May 1792, Albemarle Co., Va.  James Turner of Amhurst Co. to Samuel Dyer of Albemarle, land on Hardware River and Fortier River.
