RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SOME GRAVES FAMILIES OF SC, TN & AL

 

 

 

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF JOHN GRAVES (1) AND SUSAN ‑‑‑‑‑‑

Ann (“Nancy”) Graves (2) was born about 1763 (or 1760) in SC, and died 8 Nov. 1842 in Carter Co., TN.  She married Jacob Perkins, son of Joshua Perkins and Mary (“Polly”) Black, in 1781 (or 11 May 1791 or before 1780) in Washington Co., TN.  He was born about 1756 in Liberty Co., SC, and died 11 (or 4) April 1819 in Carter Co., TN.  They were the parents of 10 children, according to Jacob’s will, order of birth not known.

A profile of the Jacob Perkins family on p. 340, History of Johnson Co., Tenn., 1986, submitted by James F. Perkins, also lists all 10 of the children.  It states that the will of Jacob also names 2 of his grandsons: William Perkins, born 19 Feb. 1807, married Margaret Clawson, born 6 Dec. 1813 in VA, and Benjamin L. Perkins, born 22 March 1812, married Mary Bunton.

“This Perkins family is said to have discovered the Cranberry Ore by 1821.  They had built a forge with all equipment used in that day.  Earlier they had been involved in the Dugger Forge on the Watauga River above Butler.

There was much speculation of land and ore at that time.  They received a land grant of this property from the State of North Carolina.  They had to buy out a previous claim, and soon sold to William and Abe Dugger.”

The following documents are among several that support the relationships given in this genealogy.

From National Archives, SC No. R 8105, Perkins, Jacob and Ann (Re: Ann Graves):

State of Tennessee, Washington Co.:  Oct. the 16th day 1852 personally appeared Jacob Perkins a citizen of said county before me Wilkin Adkinson an acting Justice of the peas and for sd county and after being duly sworn deposeth and says that he is about fifty three years of age and that he is one of the legal heirs and representatives of Jacob Perkins deceased and that he has often heard his father the said Jacob Perkins deceased say that he served as a soldier in the revolutionary war with the American troops in the State of South Carolina under General Marrien & Col. Horry and their officers & that he had several discharges from his officers & that he gave them to Col. Mcgimsey of Burke county N. Carolina to try to get land for him that Mcgimsey died soon after & he never could get his discharges again.  I also heard him said Jacob Perkins deceased say that he served several Tours against the Indians after he removed from South Carolina to this county under Captain Joseph Ford & Capt. Bullard.  I have heard him say that he was married to my Mother by Jonathan Mulkey a preacher of the gospel in this county of Washington while it was yet a territory of N. Carolina.  My Mothers Name before marriage was Ann Graves and he further states that his father the said Jacob Perkins deceased on the 4th of April 1819 and that his widow lived with me & continued a widow till her death which took place the eighth day of November 1842.

Wilkin Atkinson, Justice of the Peace                                    s/Jacob Perkins

 

State of Tennessee, County of Monrow:  On this 12 day of May A.D. one thousand eight hundred and fifty three Personally appeared before me a Justice of the peace within and for the County and State aforesaid Benjamin Graves age 88 years a resident of Monrow County in the State of Tennessee who being duly sworn according to law declared that he was personally acquainted with Jacob Perkins and Anne Perkins his wife in there lifetime.  My father moved from South Carolina to the State of Tennessee when I was about 12 years of age and we was there foure years before Jacob Perkins and Ann Graves my sister was married the way I new that they was married is this my father was not willing to the marriage and Jacob Perkins and Ann Graves my sister runaway and was married by a clergyman by the name of Mulkey and my father became uneasy and he went to see Parson Mulkey to see if they was married and when he came back he stated in my prersence Mulkey tolde him that he married Jacob Perkins and Ann Graves and that was near seventy two years ago to the best of my knowledge and recollection.  And Jacob Perkins told me that he served in the Revolutionary War.  I lived in three miles of Jacob Perkins when he entered the Service and served out his time and was Honorably discharged and I am well satisfied that he did serve in the Revolutionary War but I do not know how long he did serve.  Jacob Perkins was a man that could be relied on for truth and verasity in his neighborhood where he lived.

Another person who was believed to be a possible child is Abraham Graves, born 1816, who married Margaret Snider.  However, that person is a descendant of Thomas Graves of Hartford, CT (genealogy 168), and there seems to be no connection between this family and that one.  (R‑3, R‑13)

  67.  James Graves, b.c. 1837.

 

William R. Graves (20) was born about 1810 in Carter Co., Tenn., and died in 1898 in Cherokee Co., NC.  He married Anna (or Anne) L. McGinty Starnes on 12 March 1837.  Her great granddaughter, Mrs. Mamie Stevens, says Anna's last name was McGinnis (or McGinish).  Anna was born in Jan. 1804 or 1811 in Washington Co., TN, and died 16 March 1914 in Cherokee Co., NC.  She was listed as one of the original charter members of the Hanging Dog Baptist Church which was located in the Hanging Dog section of Murphy, NC.

Anne was either married to a Mr. Starnes before she married William Graves, or her maiden name was Starnes and she had at least two children before her marriage. These first two children, both born in Washington Co., TN, were: Mary Starnes, b.c. 1833, and Martha Jane Starnes, b.c. 1835, m. James F. Ellis.  Martha Jane gave her mother as Anna Graves on her marriage license.

William Graves was listed in the Cherokee Co. census, 1850-1880.  His occupation was listed as coalier or collier (coal miner).  There was an iron ore mine then in that area, owned and operated by George W. Lovingood and his brother Harmon Lovingood.  Perhaps that is where William worked.  Anne was listed as widowed in the 1900 census for Cherokee Co.

In the 1850 and 1860 censuses for Cherokee Co., NC, there were other Graves families that may have been related, including possible brother Jacob, also a coalier, born about 1822 in Carter Co., TN.  The 1850 census also showed a Jackson Graves, born about 1775 in VA, farmer, and his wife Elizabeth, born about 1780 in NC.  Could these be William's parents?

There was a Lewis Graves, born about 1750, who married Rebecca Starnes or his son Lewis married Rebecca Starnes. They lived in NC and SC, and later in Wilson Co., TN, and were descended from Capt. Thomas Graves of VA.  They may be connected with William Graves.

The first 2 children of William and Anne were born in Monroe Co., TN, and the others in Cherokee Co., NC. Sarah, John, Caroline, and Emaline were all buried in Hanging Dog Baptist Cem., Cherokee Co., NC.  (R‑1, R‑2, R‑3)

They were in the 1860 census for Notia, Cherokee Co., NC.  They were in the 1870 and 1880 censuses for Monroe Co., TN.  He was a collier (coal miner) in 1850 and 1860, a farm laborer in 1870, and a coal burner in 1880.  (R‑13)
