THOMAS GRAVES, QUAKER

 

of Newcastle Co., Delaware

and His Descendants

 

 

COMMENTS

 

All descendants of this genealogy share a common ancestry with the families of William Graves of Drogheda, Co., Louth, Ireland (gen. 35), Humphrey Isaac Greaves of NC (gen. 50), Thomas Graves of New Castle Co., Delaware, Quaker (gen. 85), and Thomas J. Graves of OH & DE (gen. 472).  This has been determined by Y-DNA testing as shown on the Graves Family Association website.  Other families that may be related but have not yet been DNA tested are also listed there.

There is the possibility that the Quaker Graves Family of Northern Ireland and Delaware is descended from the MacGregor/Grierson family of Scotland. In looking for the ancestry of someone descended from a Greeves family in England, I noticed that the earliest ancestor of that family in the English census records was from Ireland. When I looked at the Greeves family in Ireland, I discovered that they were originally from Scotland, with the earliest known ancestor born there in 1490. The family name in Scotland was originally Grierson (or perhaps MacGregor before that, as mentioned later in this article), but some of the family members changed the surname to Grier and Greer, and then some of those later changed the name to Greeves. This name change reminded me of a similar occurrence about which I wrote a series of three articles. See Graves Family Bulletins 8-9 (Oct. 29, 2006, “Name Change from MacGregor to Grierson to Grieve to Greaves”), 9-4 (April 4, 2007, “Follow-up to Name Change Article in Oct. 2006 Bulletin”), and 11-3 (April 21, 2009, “Possible Ancestry of the Quaker Graves Family of Delaware and Northern Ireland”). Those articles take the family back to the 1300’s, show that it started as MacGregor, and indicate that the change to Grieve was possibly caused at least partly when a Thomas Grierson and a Janet Grieve were married in the 1600’s and took the Grieve surname to inherit her estate. I think it is likely that the family discussed in the 2006-2007 articles and the Greeves family of Scotland and Ireland (genealogy 712) are the same, but, if so, I don’t know what the connection is.  I also noticed that the places in Ireland and some of the other surnames mentioned in the Grierson genealogy (gen. 712) were very similar to those associated with the Thomas Graves of Delaware family. For instance, both families lived in and around Dungannon, Co. Tyrone, and Ballyhagan, Co. Armagh, both in Ulster near the southern edge of Lough Neagh. Irish Quakers in Pennsylvania, by Albert Cooke Myers, page 365, states that “The will of Joseph Whitesett in Dungannon, Co. Tyrone, Ireland, dated Jan. 7, 1732, mentions his relative Thomas Greaves, Jr., and suggests that the wife of Thomas Greaves may have been a Whitesett.” Genealogy 712 shows relationships between the families of Greer and Whitsitt. In Passengers and Ships Prior to 1684, Welcome Society: “It has been speculated that perhaps the widow, Jane Greave, who came to America on the ship Antilope in 1682 with her mother, Mary Milcon, may have been a sister-in-law of Thomas Greave. She was from the Quaker meeting at Killmore Parish, Ballyhagan, Ireland. She married 6 mo 8th 1685 Maurice Liston.” In The History of Ballyhagan and Richhill Meetings, second edition published in 2005, among the list of those who emigrated, is Ann Millcurn (Malcum or Milcome) certificate dated 1st month 31. 1682 with her daughter, Jane Greer, of Loughgall. Notice some of the spelling variations, including the use of Greer instead of Greave. Both families belonged to the Society of Friends (Quakers). Also, the Quaker Graves family of Northern Ireland just seemed to appear from nowhere, with no trace so far found of them in England, and their DNA haplogroup (I1) is more typical of Scotland than England. I thought, could it be that the Graves family of gen. 85 is the same as the Greeves family of Ireland? I found that there is a Y-DNA project at Family Tree DNA for the Greer, Grier, Grierson surname. One group that they tested (their group 4) is a 21 of 25 match with our genealogy 85, not as close as I had hoped, but still a possibility. Perhaps there will be other results from their study that will be even closer.

This information was included in an article in the Graves Family Bulletin of April 21, 2009 titled “Possible Connection of the Family of Northern Ireland With the Greaves Families Now in Barbados and Vicinity”, which discusses this intriguing possibility.

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Thomas Graves (1) lived in New Castle Co., Delaware.  He probably died before his son, Samuel, came into possession of his land in 1700.  He is thought to have arrived in America, perhaps at Philadelphia, about 1680.  There is a deed for property he purchased near Philadelphia in 1685.  It is said that he entertained people such as William Penn and Lord Baltimore at magnificent hunting parties on his lands.  Irish Quakers in Pennsylvania, by Albert Cooke Myers, page 365, states that “The will of Joseph Whitesett in Dungannon, Co. Tyrone, Ireland, dated Jan. 7, 1732, mentions his relative Thomas Greaves, Jr., and suggests that the wife of Thomas Greaves may have been a Whitesett.”  In Passengers and Ships Prior to 1684, Welcome Society: “It has been speculated that perhaps the widow, Jane Greave, who came to America on the ship Antilope in 1682 with her mother, Mary Milcon, may have been a sister-in-law of Thomas Greave.  She was from the Quaker meeting at Killmore Parish, Ballyhagan, Ireland.  She married 6 mo 8th 1685 Maurice Liston.”

Because of the similarity in names and places, it is very possible that this family is closely connected with or descended from genealogy 712 for John Grierson of Scotland, and the Greer and Greeves Family of Ireland.

Thomas is thought by some to have come from Lynn, Mass. about 1690.  As his son Thomas Graves, Jr. of Salem Co., N.J. married a New England woman and his son Samuel Graves married a widow of a Lynn man who had moved to N.J., some support for this supposition is supplied.  (Note that in the discussion of Samuel, there is no information provided to support this statement that he married the widow of a Lynn man; evidence is needed.)

In the tax list for 1693 for Sussex Co., Pa. (now Delaware) there appears the name of a Thomas Graves who owned 300 acres of land and is listed with children.  For a time he was thought to be the father of the four children listed below (for Thomas Graves of New Castle Co.), but careful examination of the land records of Sussex Co. proves him to be another man who did not die until after 1712 and seems to have had but one son, Thomas Graves, Jr.  (Who is this Thomas Graves of Sussex Co.?)  In contrast, as stated above, the Thomas of New Castle Co. must have died before 1700.  Thomas Graves of Sussex Co. was there as early as 1680, as he is named in a census of that year and had a grant of land from the court at Lewes that year.

In a Genealogical History of the State of Delaware, as quoted by John Card Graves, appears the following. "Among the first settlers of New Castle County were the ancestors of the Graves family.  They were of English descent.  Thomas Grave (for so was the name sometimes spelled two centuries ago) was the first of the family to come to America.  He was a typical English gentleman, possessed of means, a sturdy constitution, and a hearty love of the chase.  He founded his home at Christiana Hundred in 1691, purchasing for that purpose 500 acres of land, part of which he used as a game preserve.  He was fond of hunting deer and foxes which made their habitation on his property, and hunting parties he gave were famous for good sport.  He died on his farm."

Samuel Graves and Thomas Graves were living in Sussex Co., Pa. (now Delaware) in 1693.  The names of the two brothers appear upon the tax list of that year, each paying 6 d. tax having no real estate.  (If Samuel and Thomas paid tax in 1693, it would seem that they should have been born before 1677 and 1680, since they would have only been 16 and 13 years of age.  See also the comment in the section on Thomas Graves who was supposedly born 1680.)  Widow Wynne is taxed on a 200 acre plantation the same year, and her stepson Jonathan Wynne is taxed 6 d. in the same year.  Jonathan Wynne about 1695 married Sarah Graves, a sister of the above two brothers, as is proved by the Friends Meeting minutes in regard to the marriage of Jonathan Wynne's daughter Sidney to her first cousin Samuel Graves, Jr., son of the above Samuel Graves, in 1732.  Another brother, Thomas Graves, lived in Salem Co., N.J. as early as 1698, where he is witness to a will dated that year.  (Why is Thomas Graves referred to as "another brother", since Thomas was already mentioned as a brother?)  Samuel Graves, Sr. about 1700 moved to a tract of land in New Castle Co. which seems to have belonged to Thomas Graves as early as 1691.  In a survey of adjacent lands in 1691, it refers to the line of Thomas Graves' lands, and it is reasonable to suppose that he was the father of these children.  (R‑106)

CHILDREN OF THOMAS GRAVES (1)

Samuel Graves (2) was born about 1670 (or 1677 or 1675)[1], probably in Ireland, and died 5 Oct. 1741 in New Castle Co., Del. He married Sarah Bezer, daughter of William Bezer and Sarah Cool of Chichester, Chester Co. (now Delaware Co.), Pa., in June 1702.  She was born 25 (or 26) April 1677, and died 15 Oct. 1751 in Delaware.  He was a weaver by trade, and lived near the present village of Centerville, Delaware.  He was for many years an accepted minister in the Society of Friends and an elder in the Center Meeting.  (R‑106)

Jonathan Wynne built a house in 1700 in Blockley Twp., Philadelphia Co. on 200 acres of land he inherited from his father, and here his descendants to the sixth generation lived.  In 1890 the farm was sold and developed into the present beautiful suburb to Philadelphia called Wynnefield.  The original homestead, remodeled into one of the most beautiful colonial houses in the Philadelphia area, was still standing in 1923.  (R‑106)

(now part of Philadelphia).  H. Clifford Campion, Jr., who supplied much of this information, is descended from this John Wynne.

 

Thomas Graves (5) was born about 1680, and died in 1714 in Pilesgrove Twp., Salem Co., N.J.  He left a will dated 12 Sept. 1714, proved 28 Dec. 1714, that named his wife Ann and his brother-in-law Aquilla Barber as executors.

He married Ann (or Anne) Barber about 1703-4.  She was born in 1681 in Suffield, Conn., and was a daughter of Thomas Barber and Ann Chase.

Thomas Graves purchased the 100 acre plantation of Benjamin Acton 2 Feb. 1701/2 situated at the head of Salem Creek in Pilesgrove Twp., part of 1500 acres Acton bought 1n 1695 from William Hall.  His brother-in-law, Aquilla Barber, bought 125 acres of this same tract adjoining him on 20 Aug. 1703.  This land was not far from the present site of Woodstown, Salem Co., N.J.

(According to notes in the Bertha McGeehan Collection in the Gen. Soc. of Pa. Library: Thomas Graves of Oxford, Philadelphia Co., Pa., bought land on Alloways Creek, Salem Co., N.J., on 28 March 1685.  Was this the same Thomas?  If not, who was he?  Thomas could not have been born in 1680 and bought land in 1685.)

Thomas was evidently a member of the Society of Friends for at their meeting held 4 mo. (June) 29, 1704, "George Abbott was appointed to go and speak to Thomas Graves once more concerning his disorderly walking both in his marriage also his neglect in appearing at meeting."  He is called a weaver in the deeds, as was his brother Samuel.  The following children (not yet 21) were named in his will, and he left 100 acres of land to each of them (or perhaps 200 acres to Joseph).  (R‑106, R‑108)

Jonathan Graves (10) was born 29 May 1712, and died 3 June 1774 in Delaware.  He married Sarah Chandler, daughter of Swithin and Ann Chandler, on 14 Nov. 1739. Their intention to marry was announced on 6 Aug. 1737 at Newark-Kennett Friends Meeting, Pa.  She was born 20 March 1713 and died 24 May 1760.

Jonathan Greaves was described as of Chester Hill, Del., and mentioned as of New Castle Co., Del. (Gen. Soc. of Pa., 3:117).  According to New Castle Co., Del. Will Abstracts, 1682-1800, p. 35: "Jonathan Greaves, yoeman, of Christiana Hundred, seventh day of fifth month in 1774, will probated June 11, 1774.  Page 100 mentions son Jacob, father Samuel, son Jonathan Jr., son David. Executors to be sons Jacob and Jonathan."  (R‑106, R‑107)

Monthly Meeting, since Richard Graves and others did.  Thomas was granted a certificate to Philadelphia (Pa.) Monthly Meeting on 28 March 1750.  He may have moved to Philadelphia slightly earlier, about 1747.  He sold the homestead his father had left him to his brother Joseph on 15 Jan. 1754.  (R‑101)

CHILDREN OF JOHN GRAVES (7) AND JANE CHANDLER

Thomas Graves (23) was born 5 July 1734, and died in Chatham Co., N.C., probably before 1800.  He married Martha Dixon about 1770 at the Monthly Meeting, Society of Friends, on Clay Creek, Chester Co., Pa.  She died in Tenn.  They were both Quakers.  Thomas moved to Cane Creek Monthly Meeting, Orange Co. (now Alamance Co.), N.C. in 1757[3].  Cane Creek M.M. was established the 7th day of the 10th month of 1751.  (The Quaker custom was to refer to months by number rather than by name.)  This family also seems to have lived in Chatham Co., N.C.  (R‑1, R‑5, R‑105, pp. 14, 18-22, 34a, 35, 39, 48)

CHILDREN OF JONATHAN GRAVES (10) AND SARAH CHANDLER

Jacob Graves (35) was born 23 June 1743 in New Castle Co., Del., and died 17 (or 15) April 1818 (or 1817) in Whitewater, Wayne Co., Ind.  He married Rebecca Langley, daughter of Jonathan Langley and Sarah Mendenhall of New Castle Co., Del., on 2 July (or Feb.) 1771 at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church, Wilmington, Del.  (See p. 733 in the history of that church.)  She was born about 1750 and died before 1816, both in Christiana Hundred, New Castle Co., DE.  He was complained of on 15 Aug. 1771 at Newark-Kennett Friends Meeting because he was married out of the Quaker faith.

Jacob Greaves farmed at Wilmington, Delaware, about one mile southeast of Centerville, New Castle Co., Del. He sold his farm in 1816 in the Christiana Hundred area and moved to Wayne Co., Ind., near Richmond.  The sale date was Nov. 4, 1816, after the farm growing season was over.  He died soon after arrival in the Quaker colony in Indiana just a few days before his 85th birthday.  He was buried in the family lot in Smyrna Quaker graveyard about four miles southeast of Richmond, Ind., where his son Jacob Jr. and others lie.

When Jacob and his family migrated to Indiana, they stopped at Redstone, Pa., and stayed with a family named Dingy.  While there during the stopover of the covered wagon caravan, Ann, wife of Jacob Jr., gave birth to a girl whom they called Martha Dingy Grave in honor of the hosts who took them in.  It is not known how long the caravan of Graves stayed there.

In 1897, Jacob's descendants began annual reunions in Glen Miller Park in Richmond, Ind.  The Minnesota branch of Grave began annual reunions at Lake Minnetonka the same year.

Although the original name was spelled Greaves, the English pronunciation became phonetically Graves.  When this branch of the family moved west in 1816, the ending letter s was dropped, and the name from then on became Grave.  (R‑31, R‑106, R‑107)

GENERATION 5

 

CHILDREN OF THOMAS GRAVES (23) AND MARTHA DIXON

Thomas Graves (45) was born about 1771 or 178-, probably in NC, and died by 6 April 1836 in Maury Co., TN.  He moved to Tenn. about 1800 with his mother and youngest sister.  According to Mr. Oliver W. Graves, Thomas's wife owned about 20 slaves, so they could not move to Ohio (a free state), so moved to Tenn. instead.  Thomas may be the one who married Peggy (or Penny?) Wall on 9 March 1803 in Randolph Co., NC, bondsman John Graves.  (There was also a Thomas Graves who married Polly Bennett on 5 May 1801 in Caswell Co., NC, but that is not the correct one.  That one was Thomas Slade Graves, born 1775 in Caswell Co., NC, died 1847 in Newton Co., GA, son of John Herndon Graves, in genealogy 270.)

Because Thomas's son, Isaac Lee Graves, and his wife Mary named their first son Elijah Thomas and their first daughter Margaret Jane, it is believed these were probably the names of his parents.  That would support the likelihood that Thomas married Margaret ("Peggy") Wall.

Thomas Graves was in Maury Co., TN in 1820 and 1830, and his estate was settled there in 1836.  The sale of property of the estate of Thomas Graves, deceased, was held on 6 April 1836 in Maury Co., TN.  Administrators were Isaac L. Graves and John W. Record.  Some of the buyers were Polly Graves (widow?), Isaac L. Graves, Sherwood Graves, William A. Record, John W. Record, James B. Record, William L. Brantley, Harris Brantley, etc.

There was a Thomas Graves who married Polly Weaver on 15 Dec. 1828 in Maury Co., TN.  Could this have been a second wife of Thomas who died in 1836?  The 1820 census for Maury Co., TN showed Thomas Graves with 2 males under 10, 1 male 26-45, 1 female 10-16, and 1 female 16-26.  All three of Thomas's known children were in Perry Co., TN in the 1850 census.  (R‑29, R‑32, R‑33)

GENERATION 6

 

CHILDREN OF THOMAS GRAVES (45)

Sylvia (or Silvia) Graves (82) was born about 1806-08 in NC, and died about 1850-52, probably in Perry Co., TN.  She married Leonard Mayton Thompson, son of Leonard Thompson, on 11 Sept. 1827 in Maury Co., TN.  The bondsman was William Duncan.  The first Leonard was born about 1776 in Wake Co., NC, married about 1800 in NC, lived near Raleigh, Wake Co., NC, moved to TN before 1820, and died in Maury Co., TN before 1850.  Leonard M. was born 26 Dec. 1806 in NC, died 7 April 1890 near the old town of Wheeler, Washington Co., AR, and was buried in Old Wheeler Cem., Washington Co. (near the Benton Co. line).  They were listed in the 1850 census for Perry Co., TN.  Their children were born in TN.

In 1852-3, Leonard M. Thompson and the children moved to McDonald Co., MO, and about 1862 moved to Washington Co., AR.  He was a Mason, a farmer and a blacksmith.  His sons Isaac and Charles (and perhaps the other sons also) played the fiddle.

He married second Martha Sanders (or Saunders), a widow, who had a son Asa Sanders/Saunders.  By the time the Thompsons arrived in AR, they were Methodists.  By his second marriage, Leonard had children Mary Jane, Sarah, and Henry who married Ida Thompson.  Mary Jane married John Franklin and had twin boys.  Mary Jane went to Texas in 1911 to visit the Thompsons.

R‑29 visited Leonard's grave, and saw parts of two old log houses on his land in Washington Co. that were still standing in the 1960's.  A grandson by Martha owned part of the land in 1977.  (R‑29, R‑34)

Isaac Lee Graves (83) was born 1 Nov. 1810 in NC, in Caswell Co., NC according to family tradition of R‑30, died about 1894 in Perry Co., TN, and was buried in the Graves Cem., Perry Co., TN.  There is no tombstone there now.  He first moved (probably from Caswell Co., NC) to Maury Co., TN, at a very early age (probably about 1820 or slightly before, when he was 10 or younger), and lived in the part that was later annexed by Marshall Co.  About 1845 he moved to Perry Co., TN.  His land grant 28680 calls for 190 acres in Perry Co., and is dated 21 April 1847.

He married twice and had nine children by each wife.  He first married Mary D. Lincoln on 19 Nov. 1828 in Maury Co., TN.  She was born 6 Jan. 1807 in NC, died 9 Feb. 1856 on Sinking Creek, Perry Co., TN, and was buried on Sinking Creek but not in the Graves Cem.  The first person buried there was her son, Brantley.

Mary's father's name may have been Elijah Lincoln, and Isaac and Mary's oldest son may have been named for her father and his father.  The only Lincoln family listed in the 1830 Maury Co. census is Elijah Lincoln.  He and his wife, Jane, are mentioned in early Maury Co. court records.

Isaac married second Parthena (or Parthenia) (Ledbetter) Ary, daughter of Johnson Ledbetter[5] and Jane Wade, on 28 Oct. 1858 in Lewis Co., TN.  She was born 12 Feb. 1837, died about 10 April 1912 in Perry Co., TN, and was buried in the Graves Cem., Perry Co., TN.

Parthena had first married Daniel Ary on 6 Feb. 1854 in Lewis Co., TN.  From the 1860 census of Perry Co. it appears they had two daughters: Sophia J. and Susan.  Apparently Susan died young, since no one has any information about her.  Sophia married several times but never had any children.  She was buried in Graves Cem., Perry Co., TN.  A new tombstone was recently erected for her, provided by Earline Hickerson, a foster daughter.

R‑38 showed Elijah Thomas Graves (oldest child of Isaac Lee Graves) as the father of a Henry Lewis Graves with wife Louise Harber.  However, it appears that Henry Lewis Graves was actually Henry Lee Graves, half-brother of Elijah, since all dates and other information matched.  (R‑28, R‑29, R‑30, R‑33, R‑44)

John H. ("Bossy") Graves (85) was born 19 Dec. 1823, probably in Maury Co., TN, and died about 1902 in Wayne Co., TN.  He married Sarah ("Sally") Williams, daughter of William Williams and Sarah ("Sally") ‑‑‑‑‑‑, about 1845.  She was born 3 Sept. 1828 in TN, died 26 March 1892 in Flatwoods, Perry Co., TN[7], and was buried Flatwoods Cem., Perry Co., TN.  Their children were probably born in Wayne Co., TN.

The family was listed in the 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, and 1900 censuses for Wayne Co., TN.  There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that John H. Graves was a son of Thomas Graves; the second male in the household of Thomas in 1820 was probably another son, possibly Sherwood Graves.  According to Imogene Parsley, John H. and Isaac Lee Graves (his brother) lived along Buffalo River near the Wayne Co.-Perry Co. line, with John H. always found in Wayne Co. and Isaac in Perry Co. records.  The similarity of children's names between the families of Thomas, John and Isaac is also quite striking.  (R‑32, R‑33, R‑49, R‑51)

James Graves (88) was born 2 Aug. 1801 (?), died 11 Sept. 1846, and was buried in Salt (or Saltz) Springs Cem., near Allensville, Ohio.  He married Sarah Leach (or Murry?).  She was born 12 Aug. 1798 and died 1 Dec. 1850.  She was buried beside her husband in Vinton Co., Ohio.  According to Mrs. Neva Davis, the following were his children.  The main evidence for James being a son of Samuel seems to be Mrs. Davis's statement that her grandfather said that James was a brother of Henry and Nathan.  This James then does not seem to be the one who was born in 1819 and died in 1846.  That one is a cousin, a son of John.  Sarah, the widow of James Graves, was listed in the 1850 census for Richland Twp., Vinton Co., Ohio, with children Basheba, 22, Mary J., 15, Martha, 10, James, 9; and a child Louisa, 1, who may have been a grandchild.  (R‑6, R‑7, R‑15, R‑105, pp. 12a, 13a, 14, 41a, 48)

His obituary (from Karen Hammer): “Died, at his residence in Essex township, Stark county, Illinois, Dec. 12th, 1885, Thomas Graves, aged 68 years, 11 months and 24 days.

Deceased was born in Chatham county, North Carolina, Dec. 18, 1816. With his parents he moved to Ross county, Ohio, in the year 1821. On attaining his manhood, he emigrated to Stark county, Illinois, in 1840. Oct. 28, 1841, he was married to Nancy Ann Cox, settling on a farm on Indian Creek, where he lived until the year 1850, when he moved to the farm occupied by him at the time of his death. Having witnessed the growth to maturity of his ten children, who survive him (a period of almost 36 years) he might truly be classed as one of the Stark county's early pioneers and of whom the death roll has been so frequently called during the year 1885.

He had been a great sufferer for years, especially so for the past nine weeks. Being naturally of a very genial disposition, he bore his affliction remarkably well. Few who have met "Uncle Tom," as he was familiarly called, will ever forget the pleasant greeting with which he was wont to welcome his many friends to share his hospitality. No person ever turned from his door unfed or unsheltered. A very able discourse by Rev. Crane, of Galesburg, who took for his text Heb. 11:1, was pronounced at the house, after which the remains were silently and sorrowfully followed by a long procession of friends and relatives to their last resting place in Sheets cemetery.”  (R‑5, R‑12, R‑41)

Nancy Graves (144) was born 31 Oct. 1809 in Jefferson Twp., Ross Co., OH, died 13 July 1851 in Vinton Co., OH, and was buried at Union Cem., near Londonderry, Ohio.  She married Miles Ratcliff, son of John Ratcliff and Rachel Ray, on 26 Nov. 1827 in Chillicothe, Ohio.  He was born 27 Nov. 1804 in Eagle Twp., Ross Co., Ohio, died 22 Aug. 1888 in Eagle Twp., Vinton Co., Ohio, and was buried at Union Cem., beside his wife.  After Nancy died, Miles Ratcliff married Eliza Hanson on 10 Oct. 1854 in Chillicothe, Ohio.  Eliza was a half-sister of Sarah Hanson Graves (Lewis' wife), so upon Miles' marriage to Eliza, he became Sarah's brother-in-law instead of her nephew by marriage as he was when married to Nancy Graves (daughter of Lewis' brother Alex).  Union Cem., where Nancy and Miles were buried, was in the area of Eagle Mills, which belonged to them.  Miles was a very well-to-do man, and owned a store and ran the Eagle Mills post office, along with the mill itself.  All their children were born in OH, at least the first 6 in Ross Co., OH.  (R‑10, R‑36)

Sarah ("Sallie") Graves (177) was born 6 Sept. 1801, died July 1849, and was buried in Smyrna, Kent Co., Delaware.  She married John C. Reed before 26 Dec. 1818 as his first wife in a non-Quaker ceremony.  They were questioned by Quaker authorities and had to confess that they were "in error" to be readmitted to the Society of Friends.

John Reed was born 1796 in Maryland, died June 1873, and was buried in Earlham Cem., Richmond, Wayne Co., IN.  He was a son of John Reed, b. 1758, Darke Co., Ohio, d. 1845, and Martha Rowland, d. Maryland.  John probably had 3 wives, 2 for certain.  His suspected second wife is Mary ‑‑‑‑‑‑, whom he married before 25 July 1853 in a non-Quaker ceremony.  Mary died 11 Jan. 1859.  For his third wife he married Ann K. Davis prior to 23 May 1860 in a non-Quaker ceremony.  He was apparently her fourth husband, since she had apparently been married previously to Mr. White (one daughter, Elizabeth Ann White, by this marriage), Mr. Benbow, and Mr. Negus.  She died 1 Sept. 1881, and was buried at Washington, Ind.  Ann was John's wife at the time of his death, according to the probate court record.  (R‑11)

Rebecca Graves (181) was born 30 April 1811, and died 22 May 1857 at Stubbs Bay, Lake Minnetonka, Minn.  She moved with her family to Wayne Co., Ind. about 1816.  She married Gibson Teas, son of Charles Teas and Mary Gibson, on 5 Jan. 1832 at Smyrna Quaker Meeting, Wayne Co., Ind.

Gibson and Rebecca settled near the Grave and Stubbs families.  Rebecca was buried near a plum thicket on the back of their small place overlooking Stubbs Bay, recently known as the John/Elmer Larson farm.  After Rebecca died, Gibson Teas drove back to Indiana and married Diadama Sartwell.  She was born 17 Oct. 1811, and died 20 March 1899 in Long Lake, Minn., daughter of Justus Sartwell and Dorothy DeMoss.  Gibson Teas died 11 May 1892.  Diadama was twice widowed before marrying Gibson Teas.  She had first married Norman West and secondly married Thomas Stafford.  She brought her Stafford sons to Minnesota, where they have descendants to this day.

Gibson Teas was a well-known woodworking artisan.  He is listed on page 206 of Furniture Makers of Indiana, 1793-1850.  In 1834 he advertised in the Richmond, Ind. Palladium for his turning business, selling ready turned bedposts.  In 1835 he joined G. S. Sherman in cabinet making, but still carried on his turning business.

He also sold brooms he made, and kept an account of sales of the period.  One of his account books is in the Western Hennepin County Pioneers Museum Library at Long Lake, Minn.  He brought his lathe to Stubbs Bay.  Some items he made are owned by relatives and some are in the museum at Long Lake (trays, rolling pins).  He started the first library at Long Lake, and also was leader in the Spiritualist Movement in Hennepin Co.

From the biographical sketch of Gibson's son Charles, we learn that the family moved to Minnetonka in 1856. Evidently the woodworking skill of Gibson Teas enabled him to secure employment at the furniture factory at Minnetonka Mills.  (See history of that enterprise by Avery Stubbs.)  All this before moving to old Excelsior town, the part that is now Orono.

The old town of Excelsior record book 1 (not present village) shows that Gibson Teas was chosen judge of elections, 1864, local road overseer, 1862-6, and was on the town Board of Supervisors, 1864, 5, and 6.  (R‑107)

Kersey Grave (182) was born 21 (or 20) Nov. 1813 in Brownsville, Fayette Co., PA, and died 4 Sept. 1883 in Richmond, Wayne Co., IN.  He married Lydia Michener, daughter of Benjamin Michener and Abigail Stanton, in 1845.  He forsook the Quaker faith and Christianity and wrote infidelic and atheistic books.  Lydia was born 18 Jan. 1814 in Cadiz, Harrison Co., OH, and died 19 March 1889 in Richmond, Wayne Co., IN.  They were in the 1850 census for Harveysburg, Warren Co., OH, with his name transcribed as Henry, their surname as Graves, and his occupation as nurseryman.  They were in the 1860 census for Harveysburg, Warren Co., OH.  All their children were born in OH.  (R‑31)

Quakers). Mary Teas was born 14 Aug. 1812 in Delaware, and died 26 Jan. 1890 in Hennepin Co., Minn.

All their children were probably born in Wayne Co., Ind., since they did not move to Minnesota until 1855. Jonathan and Lydia were named to honor Allen's parents, Charles and Mary for Mary's parents, and John and Rachel for Mary's grandparents.  (R‑107)

CHILDREN OF JACOB GRAVES (75) AND ANN STROUD

Milton Graves (194) was born 4 Aug. 1807 in DE, and died 16 July 1884 near Rockville, Parke Co., IN.  He married Mary ‑‑‑‑‑‑ probably about 1825.  She was born about 1802 in PA.  They were in the 1850 census of Jefferson, Preble Co., OH, with their surname spelled Grave.  They were in the 1860 census for Jefferson, Preble Co., OH.  He was a shoemaker in 1850 and a nurseryman in 1860.  (R‑106)

Children - Graves

    595.    Newton Graves, b.c. 1827 (IN), m. Esther ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  Lived and died in Kokomo, IN.  They were in the 1850 census for Jefferson, Preble Co., OH, living next to his parents, when he was a shoemaker.  They were in the 1880 census for Kokomo, Howard Co., IN, when he ran or worked in a restaurant.  They were in the 1900 census for Center, Howard Co., IN, with their adopted daughter Grace M. Graves, b. Dec. 1979, IN.  No natural children.

    596.    Jane Graves, b.c. 1829 (IN).  Based on the 1850 and 1860 censuses, when she was living with her parents, it appears that she may have had a son Jacob, b.c. Dec. 1849 in OH.

    597.    Harriet Graves, b.c. 1833 (IN).

 

Curtis L. Graves (197) was born 31 Jan. 1813 in DE, and died 5 Jan. 1892 in Spartanburgh, Randolph Co., IN.  He probably first married Sarah E. ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  (The interpretation of the census information in the next paragraph is not clear.)  He then married Beulah W. Dunham.  She was born about 1819 in OH.

The 1850 census for Jefferson Twp., Preble Co., OH, listed Curtis Graves, 36, farmer, DE, Sarah E. Graves, 25, MD, Edith Graves, 13, IN, and Levi C. Graves, 2, OH.  The 1860 census for Richmond Twp., Wayne Co., IN listed Curtis Graves, 46, merchant, DE, Bula W. Graves, 41, OH, and Levi C. Graves, 11, OH.  The 1870 census for Richmond Twp., Wayne Co., IN, listed Curtis Grave, 57, DE, Bulah W. Grave, 53, OH, Levi C. Grave, 24, fruit dealer, OH, and William Dunham, 42, shoe maker, OH.  In the 1880 census for Spartansburg, Randolph Co., IN, was Curtis L. Grave, retired merchant, age 67, born in DE, father born in DE, mother born in DE, with wife Bula W. Grave, age 60, born in OH, and brother-in-law William Dunham, shoemaker, age 52, born in OH.

The 1850 census for Jefferson Twp., Preble Co., OH, listed the family of James Dunham, 28, carpenter, and after the list of children was Beulah (Bealah) Dunham, 30, and Phebe A. Dunham, 27, so it seems apparent that Beulah was not married to Curtis in 1850, and Levi was already born then, so Levi must have been by a first wife.  It is not clear who Edith Graves was (13 in 1850).

Jonathan S. Graves (274) was born 18 Dec. 1842 in Vinton Co., Ohio, and died 10 May 1911 in Burlington Junction, Nodaway Co., Mo.  He married Rachel Graves (#810), daughter of Joseph Graves and Mary Ratcliff, on 25 Dec. 1865 in Wyoming, Stark Co., Ill. (or Londonderry, Ross Co., Ohio).  She was born 13 July 1844 in Londonderry, Ross Co., Ohio, and died 7 Oct. 1919 in Burlington Junction.  They were both buried in Ohio Cem., Burlington Junction, Mo.

An obituary for Jonathan follows: "Another Soldier Answers Taps. Death of Jonathan S. Graves, the Well Known Soldier-Citizen.

Some three weeks ago our fellow townsman and highly respected citizen, Jonathan S. Graves, was stricken with a stroke of paralysis and for several days was very low, but later showed signs of recovery and was supposed to be slowly gaining until Wednesday afternoon, when he was taken with a sinking spell and quietly passed away, even before it was known that he was going.

Jonathan S. Graves was born in Vinton county, Ohio, December 18, 1842.  At the age of 7 years he moved with his parents to Illinois where he grew to manhood.  At the age of 19 years he enlisted in the 112 Illinois infantry in the Union ranks and was in active service until the close of the war.  He was taken a prisoner of war while in discharge of his duty near Parks Ferry, Tenn., on or about November 17, 1863, and was confined in Atlanta and Andersonville, Ga., Belle Isle, Va., Charleston and Florence, S.C., and finally escaped on the 17 day of February 1865 at Goldsborough, N.C.  His health was seriously impaired by his prison life.  He was married December 25, 1865, to Rachel Graves who survives him.  To this union was born two sons, Sherman, who died about 20 years ago at the age of 24 years, and Sheridan, now a resident of this place.  He also leaves a brother, Samuel Graves of Council Bluffs, and a sister, Mrs. Herridge of Tarkio, besides a host of friends and neighbors.

He moved with his family from Illinois in 1882 to the farm which he still owns four miles south of this place. He retired from farming eleven years ago and has since lived in this city.  His ready wit and good disposition made him a general favorite among all who knew him.

The funeral occurred at the M.E. church in Burlington Junction Friday at 10:30 a.m., Rev. Snider of the Christian church officiating, and the body was laid to rest in the Ohio cemetery.  A large gathering of his friends and comrades were present to pay their last respects to him whom they so honored and respected."

Only one page from Jonathan's diary survives, and discusses his escape from prison in Newbern, S.C. (the preceding article says Goldsborough, N.C.).

"When I got away from the rebels I was crawling on my hands and knees along the wagon road ... to Goldsborough, N.C., under guard from outside of town.  We had bin run in here the day before from Florence, S.C. Prison.  I crawled from here to Nubern, N.C. on hands and knees from the 16 of Febuary till the 4 day of March, 90 miles.  I had not walked for over 8 months before I got away.  I was buried for over 8 months in Anderson Prison, all but my head and armes.  This was to kill the dropsy, scurvey, gangreen which I had in my legs and bodey.  I floated down the Neuse River in the night past the Rebel Army at Kinston, N.C."

Both their children were born in Stark Co., Ill.  (R‑15)

He played a fiddle.  Pearl Maxwell Thies had an old violin case that he gave her as she studied violin.  He brought the first phonograph to Stubbs Bay, Minn. about 1900, and charged a nickel to let each one hear it play.

The records of the old town of Excelsior show that he ran for the office of tax collector on April 5, 1859, but was defeated by Myron Pease, first storekeeper at Excelsior.  About 1900 he established the first post office at Hulda, Minn., later called Bederwood, now Stubbs Bay.  It was not profitable, and soon the Postal Dept. discontinued it.

Levi C. Graves (598) was born 19 Oct. 1848 in OH (according to the 1880 census), and died in 1920 in Kenosha, WI.  He married Elizabeth D. Starbuck on 5 Feb. 1879.  She was born 12 March 1854 and died much earlier than Levi.  Levi lived in Chicago in the 1890's, moved to Kenosha, WI about 1900, and remained there until his death.

The Graves and Starbuck families lived in Indiana, and they were originally Quakers.  (Perhaps Levi was descended from Thomas Graves of New Castle Co., DE, genealogy 85.)  The 1880 census for Peru, Miami Co., IN listed Levi C. Graves as a hotel keeper, age 31, born in OH, father born in DE, mother born in OH, with wife Elizabeth, age 26, born in IN, father born in NC, mother born in IN, and son Thomas, age 6 months, born in IN.

Russell Strawbridge of Rensellaer, IN, a second cousin of Thomas V. Graves (R‑36) wrote that there might be a connection between Levi Graves and Stephen B. Graves.  Stephen B. Graves married Mary Strawbridge on 5 Nov. 1835.  She was born 2 Sept. 1816 in Hopewell Twp., PA. Their children, all born in Indiana, were: Joseph S., b. 14 Sept. 1836; Davis, b. 9 Sept. 1838, lived in Crawfordsville, IN; Albert, b. 21 Aug. 1840, m.

William Tecumseh Sherman Graves (803), called Sherman, was born 24 Oct. 1867 in Stark Co., Ill., and died 22 Aug. 1891 in Nodaway Co., Mo.  He never married.  His obituary follows.

"Death of Sherman Graves

Sherman Graves, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan S. Graves, died at the home of his parents in Green township last Saturday evening.

William Tecumseh Sherman Graves was born in Stark county, Illinois, October 24, 1867.  Moved with his parents to Nodaway county in 1882, died August 22, 1891, aged 24 years, 9 months and 29 days.

The deceased was an exemplary young man, a boy with no bad habits, intelligent and very industrious.  In the latter trait he was noted and one seldom seen him unemployed or anywhere except where his business called him.  While he has not been a rugged, strong looking young man, he has always been considered healthy and his death was a great surprise to the community, he having been out around the community apparently well the week before, and only confined to his home some five or six days.

The funeral was held at this place Sunday afternoon, the sermon being preached at the M.E. church by Rev. J.M. Miller of Quitman.  The church would not accomodate the audience that gathered to pay tribute to this young man.

The sermon was a worthy effort and most highly appreciated by the friends of the family.

After the services the remains were placed in the Ohio cemetery.

Thus, briefly, is sketched the close of a promising young life, the hope and admiration of doting parents and admiring friends.  Such is life."  (R‑15)

 

Jasper Sheridan Graves (804), called Sheridan, was born 17 March 1871 in Stark Co., Ill., and died 4 June 1954. He moved to Nodaway Co., Mo., with his family in 1882. He married Sarah Jane ("Sadie") McGinnis on 7 April 1897 at Stanberry, Gentry Co., Mo.

He was a carpenter by trade, but in 1908 he was appointed a rural mail carrier.  He retired in 1936 after serving for 30 years.  He and his wife lived all their married life in Burlington Junction, Nodaway Co., Mo.  She died 29 April 1951.  They were both buried in the Ohio Cem., Burlington Junction, Mo.

Miles and Rachel were born in Burlington Junction, and Earl was born in Maryville, Mo.  (R‑15)

Eva Imogene ("Genie") Grave (1276) was born 23 Sept. 1866 at Crystal Bay, Lake Minnetonka, Minn., and died 16 Dec. 1922 in Clearmont, Wyoming.

She first married Fred Ludwig (also known as Fred Lewis) on 25 July 1886.  He was born 1 July 1863, and died 30 March 1910 in Brainerd, Minn.  The Minnetonka Record, Excelsior, April 8, 1910, stated: "Fred Ludwig died of appendicitis at Brainerd, Minn. Hospital.  They had lived at Bay Lake.  The body was brought to Union Cem., Long Lake.  The funeral was conducted by Bayard Shaver at the home of Mrs. Lauretta Grave.  Mrs. Lulu Lewis sang."

Eva secondly married Hiram Stephen Hebbert, son of William Hebbert and Mercena Stearns, on 27 June 1915 in Sheridan, Wyoming.  He was born 26 May 1853 in Delaware Co., Ohio, and died 8 Jan. 1933 in Sheridan.  He had been married first to Mary Stiles, and secondly to Belinda Pierce, before marrying Eva.  There were no children by this last marriage.  However, Hiram had a son William by one of the previous marriages.

Eva was a charter member of Crystal Bay Presbyterian Church (dissolved in 1957).  Fred originally met Eva when he worked for Charles Teas Grave on the farm at Stubbs Bay.  They moved to a place at Bay Lake in Crow Wing Co., Minn. in 1898, but sold later to Segal J. Turnham of Stubbs Bay in 1906.  (R‑107)

 

Gertrude Ellis Grave (1278) was born 18 Sept. 1869 in a log cabin on the north shore of Crystal Bay, Hennepin Co., Minn., and died 20 Oct. 1959 at Minnetonka Hospital, Wayzata, Minn.  She married Elmer Ellsworth Hall on 11 June 1891 by Rev. Sidney Stone of Wayzata Congregational Church.  He was born 23 Aug. 1861 in Hastings, Minn., and died 11 Nov. 1948 in Crystal Bay, Minn., son of Melville Hall and Mary Hussey, natives of Maine.

Gertrude Grave worked out as a young woman to help her folks back on the farm, as her father was never in good health after the Civil War.  While selling sorghum in Minneapolis, she met Elmer Hall, whose parents were among her customers.

Gertrude saved enough money to buy a White sewing machine when she married in 1891.  It was still in use in 1973.  Elmer got a job as a tinner at the old Minneapolis Threshing Machine Works at Hopkins, and they were living on the northwest corner of the block there where the watertower was in 1973.

Elmer's father and grandfather had been boatbuilders back in Damariscotta, Maine, on the coast, but were financially ruined after the Civil War when wooden ships became obsolete after the battle of the Monitor and Merrimac.  Elmer had learned precision work in his family trade but the foreman at Hopkins said he preferred Norwegians, so Elmer took his family to Bay Lake in Crow Wing Co. about the time of the great Hinckley fire in 1894.  They had a small place on the south shore.  They lived there for ten years among neighbors who, like the Halls, were from Lake Minnetonka.  In 1904 they moved back to the old area and lived out their days.  (R‑107)
