DESCENDANTS OF JOHN GRAVES

OF NC, TN & BLOUNT CO., AL

 

 

ANCESTRY OF THIS GRAVES FAMILY

 

It was believed by Aubrey E. Graves (R‑200) that his ancestor, John Graves, who was born in NC in 1779 and first married Betty Beeson, was a son of a James Graves who is also the probable father of James Graves who married Sarah Watkins.  A portion of his discussion follows.

"The fact that our John Graves of Blount [County, AL] married Elizabeth (Betty) Beeson and that they were both born in North Carolina helped us tremendously.  A complete Beeson genealogy has been prepared which we examined in several libraries, and it places the Beesons in and around Guilford and Randolph Counties [NC] from 1755 to 1802.  We find Elizabeth (Betty) Beeson's father, Captain Edward Beeson, living in Surry County [NC] in 1810, with John Graves and a James Graves, born around 1750, living in close proximity.  This coincidence leads us to believe that here we have James Graves, the father of John.  A James Graves is also found in the 1800 Census of Randolph County, North Carolina with several male children who well could be the early pioneer Graves who settled in Blount County, Alabama.  Many other circumstances point to this as being the James Graves, father of John, including a family tradition among the older Blount Countians that John's father was James.

Consequently, with our minds open for more direct proof than we now have, we begin our immediate family treatise with 1-JAMES GRAVES and the information we have been able to accumulate concerning him.  Whence he came to settle for a few years in Surry County, we do not know but we have reason to believe he came from Randolph County along with the Beesons.  Neither do we know in which county John was born, but we know he was born in North Carolina and certainly one James Graves was living in Randolph County at the time he was born.

The Beesons were living in Randolph County in 1800; and, besides the James Graves, there were also Samuel, Benjamin, Richard, William and John Graves, living there in 1790 and prior thereto, as well as being there in 1800..."

1-James Graves, b. ca 1750, is first found in Randolph County, North Carolina, in 1785, in the County Court Minutes under the following entry: “James Graves enters 200 acres of land lying on the south side of Rutland Creek, beginning at John Gamon's southwest corner – 3/28/1785”.

We next find James Graves in the 1790 Census of Randolph County with the following family:  Graves, James:  1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, 2 females.

In the 1800 Census of Hillsboro, Randolph County we find James Graves with this family: Graves, James:  3 males under 10, 2 males 10 to 16, 2 males 16 to 25, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 2 females 16-25, and 1 female over 45.

It is to be noted that here during this time he was living in the same County with other Graves:  Richard, Sr., John, William, Samuel, Sr. and Benjamin...He was also near the Beesons, Lathams, Lambs, and other families whom we know to be closely associated with our family.  Captain Edward Beeson married Selena Lamb; Latham Graves was a pioneer Blount Countian, etc.

However, by 1810 this 1-James Graves is not to be found in Randolph County; that is, he is not mentioned in the County Minutes and in the 1815 Tax List of Randolph County he does not appear as a landowner.  Apparently, he has left the County by 1810.

Fortunately, we find James Graves in Surry County, North Carolina, in 1809 under this entry in the County Court Minutes:  “A deed from W. Spraggins to James Graves was proved in Court by James Watkins.”

In the 1810 Census for Surry County we find James Graves with the following family:  Graves, James:  2 males 10 to 16, 3 males 16 to 25, 1 male over 45, 1 female 25-44, 1 female over 45.

Apparently, James Graves did not tarry long in Surry County for we find him again in 1810 under this entry in the County Court Minutes:  “A deed from James Graves to Andrew Mattue was proved in open court by Thomas Johnson”.

And by 1812 we find James Graves still in Surry County but owning “no acres”.  This is the last entry pertaining to him that is to be found in Surry County.

Interestingly enough, as we have repeated hereinabove, during his stay in Surry for some three or four years, we find John Graves, believed to be our 2-John Graves, mentioned several times in connection with road work, bringing a suit against Andrew Mattue, with Edward Beeson and James Graves as his witnesses, all strongly indicating that these three:  1-James Graves, 2-John Graves, and Edward Beeson all lived nearby.  After 1812 the records are silent as to the three again indicating that they were no longer there.  We know John Graves was in Sequatchie Valley, Tennessee, in 1815; Captain Edward Beeson was in Alabama; the later whereabouts of James Graves we have not accounted for."

Aubrey Graves believed that his line of the family descended from one or more of the Graves families found in Randolph Co., NC.  He states (p. 131 of his book): "A research into the early history of the Graves families in Randolph County, North Carolina reveals quite clearly that there were at least five pioneer settlers in that County.  Where they came from to this County we are not yet able to say.  However, we do venture the suggestion that they were direct descendants of either Rice6 Graves or Richard6 Graves of Virginia [apparently children of Thomas Graves and Ann Davenport]...This is based partly on the fact that subsequent generations of these Graves in Alabama took the names of Rice and Richard and Samuel and James and John.  We consider this a fact of high probative value, and we found some of them in North Alabama near Blount County.

These early Randolph pioneer Graves families, as revealed from deed records, deed entries, tax lists, census reports, etc. were the following:  [1] Richard Graves, b. 1769, d. 1849; [2] John Graves, b. probably about 1750; [3] Samuel Graves, Sr., probably born by 1750; [4] William Graves, born by 1760; [5] Leonard Graves, born by 1880 [sic, should be 1780]; [6] James Graves, born about 1750."  This John Graves, b.c. 1750, was probably the one who married Margery Harvey, and he is probably the father of Samuel, William, Richard, and possibly Leonard.  James Graves is the one previously discussed.  Could James and John, both born about 1750, have been brothers?

There is some additional speculation by Aubrey E. Graves in his book about possible lines of descent from Capt. Thomas Graves of VA.

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

John Graves (1) was born in 1779 in NC, and died in 1853 in DeKalb Co., AL.  He lived in NC, Sequatchie Valley, TN, and Blount and DeKalb counties in AL. According to the Blount and DeKalb Co., AL censuses, he was born in NC, and according to the probate records in the DeKalb Co. courthouse, he died in 1853 in that county.  Tradition has it that he was buried in the Providence Hill Cem. there.

He first married Elizabeth ("Betty") Beeson, daughter of Capt. Edward Beeson and Ann Pennington, about 1799 in NC.  She was born in 1776 in NC, died about 1824 in Blount Co., AL, and was buried in the Graves Cem. in Blount Co.  She first married Professor ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Gorman, her music teacher.  They moved to Tennessee where they had one child, Alfred Gorman.  Gorman died there, and Betty returned to NC, where Alfred was adopted by his grandfather Edward Beeson, and became known as Alfred Gorman Beeson.  By 1815, all six of John and Betty’s children (except William, the youngest) had been born.  Capt. Edward Beeson settled in St. Clair Co., AL, and later lived in Marshall Co., AL, where he died.

Capt. Edward Beeson was born about 1757 and served in the American Revolution.  He was a son of Benjamin Beeson (b. 1739) and Elizabeth ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  Benjamin was a son of Richard Beeson (b. 1684) and Charity Grubb (b. 1687).  Richard Beeson was a son of Edward Beeson, Sr. and Rachel Pennington (b. 1650), who both left England between 1682-84 with the Penn emigrants.

John Graves married second Lydia (‑‑‑‑‑‑) Chaney (or Cheney), widow of John Jacob Chaney, on 8 Oct. 1825 in Blount Co., AL.  John Chaney was the son of Jeremiah Chaney and Mary Frances Kirby.  According to the 1850 census, recorded 4 Dec. 1850) for DeKalb Co., Lydia was born about 1800 in VA.  She died in 1850.

John married a third time, shortly after the death of Lydia, Mary (Roden) Bailey (also known as "Polly"), daughter of John B. Roden and Nancy Braswell, on 17 Dec. 1850 in DeKalb Co., AL.  Mary married first William P. Bailey on 30 Nov. 1827 in Blount Co., AL.  Mary was born 18 Oct. 1807 in KY, and died after 30 June 1880 when she was recorded on the census with her daughter Susan (Bailey) Dilbeck’s family in DeKalb Co., AL.  It is also of interest that a sister of Mary (Roden) Bailey was Martha (Roden) Carns, mother of Mary Jane Elizabeth Carns who married John's grandson, Alexander Graves (#33).

It is believed that John Graves was an elder son of James Graves of Randolph and Surry counties, NC.  He is found living in Surry Co. next to his father, James Graves, and near his father-in-law, Edward Beeson, in the 1810 census of that county.  By 1815, John Graves no longer appears in the minutes of Surry Co. Court as engaged in any activity, nor does he appear in the 1820 census of Surry Co.  This is a fair indication that he was no longer living there.

According to "Early East Tennessee Tax List" by Mary Barnett Curtis, in Bledsoe Co., TN, which is in Sequatchie Valley, in 1815 a petition to delay the enactment of the Land Law during the war between the U.S. and England and afterwards, was signed by the following:  Aaron Lamb, Adam Lamb, Alexander Lamb, Thomas Beeson, John Graves, and Latham Graves.  This fact, coupled with a strong tradition among the Graves and Beeson families, shows definitely that John Graves was in Bledsoe Co., TN around 1815.  However, it is entirely possible that he may have arrived a year or two earlier.  He was accompanied by the Lambs and Beesons and, significantly, by Latham Graves who was one of the early settlers of Blount Co., AL.  (R‑14, R‑15, R‑17, R‑40, R‑200)

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF JOHN GRAVES (1)

Alexander ("Alex") Graves (2) was born about 1800 in NC, died between 1870-1880 in Blount Co., AL, and was buried there in the Graves Cem. between Blountsville and Royal, where many of his children were also buried.  He moved to Blount Co. with his parents not later than 1818.  He settled on Graves Creek between Blountsville and Royal.  He was listed on the 1870 census, and Drusilla was recorded on the 1880 census as a widow.

He first married ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Chamblee.  She had one child who died in infancy, and she may have died about the same time[1].  He married second Drusilla Sanders on 18 Nov. 1823[2] in Blount Co., AL; her name was recorded as Lilicus Sanders on the marriage record.  She was the mother of all his surviving children.  Drusilla was born about 1810 in NC, and died after 1880; she was recorded with son Stokes’ family on the 1880 census in Blount Co., AL.  She was from a wealthy Mississippi family of planters.  The family bible of Alex Graves may be in the possession of the family of Mrs. Frances Copeland, who lives in the vicinity of Hillsboro, TX.

When Alex's children married, he gave each of them a family of slaves.  He owned about twenty slaves when they were freed.  Some of the descendants of these slaves live in Detroit, MI.  (R‑3, R‑11, R‑13, R‑14, R‑25, R‑39, R‑200)

Hiram Graves (3) was born about 1802 in NC, died 6 April 1891 in DeKalb Co., and was buried in Providence Hill Cem., Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL.  He married Judy (or Juda) Brown on 7 Dec. 1824 in Blount Co., AL (Marriage Records, vol. A, p. 104).  She was born in 1806, died in 1895 (or 11 Nov. 1898 per her tombstone), and was also buried in Providence Hill Cem.

Aubrey Graves (R‑200) believed that Judy was possibly a daughter of William Brown.  However, Velvo Chaney (R‑14) stated that an Orphans Court record of 1830, Blount Co., AL, proves that Judy and her sister Cary Brown (who married Andrew Jackson Chaney, son of John Chaney and Lydia ‑‑‑‑‑‑, John Graves second wife) were the children of Joshua Brown, deceased.  Hiram Graves was appointed guardian of the minor Brown children; Cary Brown and Walker Brown were under 14 years of age, and Patsy and David Brown were over 14 years but under 21 years of age.  The 1830 census of Blount Co., AL indicates that children of those ages lived with the Hiram Graves family.

While a youth, Hiram Graves settled with his parents in Blount Co., and lived there until the early 1840's or perhaps earlier, when he moved northward and settled in DeKalb Co., in Big Wills Valley on Big Wills Creek.

Throughout his lifetime, Hiram was a farmer, becoming a rather large landowner and slaveowner for his section of the country.  A number of his children continued to live in the Valley, while some of them moved to Sand Mountain.  It is reported that as each of his children married, he gave them a sizable tract of land for a home. With a family as large as his, he would have had to own much land to do this.

Hiram Graves, a deacon at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church (now Providence Hill) in Wills Valley south of Collinsville, was a signer of the original deed for the three acres of land on which the church stands.  (A member of the Graves family has a copy of the deed.)

A picture of Hiram Graves and his wife, Judy (Brown) Graves is shown below.  (R‑13, R‑14, R‑15, R‑17, R‑27, R‑200)

William Graves (7) was born 10 March 1818 in Blount Co., AL, died 3 May 1865, and was buried in Blountsville Cem., Blount Co., AL.  He married Martha Pullen.  She was born 7 May 1821 in AL, and died 9 Nov. 1894.  She was buried in Graves Cem., near Blountsville, AL.  They were shown in the 1850 and 1860 censuses of Blount Co., with all the following children except William, all born in AL.  In the 1850 census Captain William was listed as a farmer, living with his wife and four children, Milton, Nancy, Markus, and Mary.  In the 1860 census he was listed as a merchant with a net worth of $15,000, and 7 children.  Martha was listed as a farmer on the 1870 census in Blountsville, AL.

With the outbreak of the Civil War, William organized Graves Company, Alabama Cavalry, C.S.A., and was commissioned a captain.  Following several campaigns, he was shot and killed from ambush on 3 May 1865.  (R‑39, R‑200)

Sarah Hester Graves (8), called "Sallie" or "Hetty", was born about 1826 in AL, and died after 13 Feb. 1891.  She married Augusta W. Mullins about 1844.  He was born about 1827 in GA, and died after 1860.  She filed for a widow’s pension for Augusta’s confederate service in 42nd Regt., Tenn. on 13 Feb. 1891.  This marriage is indicated by the court settlement of her father's estate in 1853 in DeKalb Co., AL.  They lived on the farm adjoining that of Rev. Samuel Smith, father of John Samuel Smith who married Elizabeth Graves, daughter of Hiram and Judy (Brown) Graves.  This family was recorded on the 1850 census in DeKalb Co., AL census and the 1860 census in Jackson Co., AL; listed as Esther, she was recorded as the head of household on the 1870 and 1880 censuses in Jackson Co., AL.  Their children were born in AL.  (R‑14, R‑25)

Y. C. Graves (11) was born about 1830-33 in Blount Co., AL, and died about 1875-80 in Blount Co.  R‑30 submitted information in May 2000 that DeKalb Co. marriage records show a marriage for Y. C. Graves to Sarah Margaret Adair, daughter of James Adair and Sarah Sharp, on 22 March 1851[5] in DeKalb Co., AL.  Sarah Adair was born about 1830 in SC, and died before 7 May 1854 when Y. C. married again.  R‑30 believes she died at the time of John’s birth.  The first marriage information was also submitted by R‑15 with an additional marriage recorded:  Y. C. married second Sarah Margaret Patten/Patter/Potter on 7 May 1854[6].  Sarah Patten (or Patter/Potter) was born about 1837 in SC, and died after 1880.  There is a Sarah Graves, born in Dec. 1849 in AL, recorded as the mother-in-law to Turner Lucy on the 1900; however, the census information contradicts previously known data.  R‑14 indicates that Sarah’s parents were Henry Potter, son of Ephraim Potter, and Margaret (“Peggy”) Ames.

R‑30 believes that son John H. was the only child born to the first marriage; however the following census information neither proves nor disproves that theory.  The disparity of John’s age from census year to census year makes it difficult to determine who John’s mother really was.

Y. C. and second wife Sarah were listed in the 1860 census for Blount Co., AL, with their children, all born in AL:  John, 6, Henry, 3, and Margaret, 6/12.  Sarah was listed as the head of the family in Etowah Co., AL in 1870, with Jno. [John], 14, Henry, 13, Margret [sic], 9, Jas 5, and Geo [female], 1.  Y. C. was apparently still alive in 1870, since two more children were listed in the 1880 DeKalb Co., AL census when John was listed as the head of family:  John, 22, Henry, 20, James, 10 [sic], Georgia Ann, 8, Calvine [sic], and Sallie, 5, and mother, Sarah, 40.  The column on the 1880 census which indicated the place of birth for the mother of John was blank; and the place of birth for the mother of the other children is listed incorrectly as AL.  The 1860, 1870 and 1880 censuses indicate that Sarah Graves was born in SC.  When John was recorded on the 1900 census, his year of birth was recorded as Feb. 1855, and the places of birth for himself, his father and mother were all recorded as AL.  (R‑14, R‑15, R‑30, R‑47, R‑200)

Ira Graves (13) was born 30 Nov. 1836 (or 1837) in Blount Co., AL, and died 11 June 1911 in Center, Shelby Co., TX.  He married Sarahann S. Mathis, daughter of Edward Mathis and Mary ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 20 July 1854[7] in DeKalb Co., AL.  She was born 11 May 1834 in DeKalb Co, AL, and died 15 May 1909 in Silas, Shelby Co., TX.  They were both buried in New Hope Cem., Shelby Co., TX.

The story goes that "Ira moved west to Shelby Co., TX just before the war, from Montgomery, AL".  (On Ira's Civil War pension application he listed 1857.)  "There [in Montgomery] he had a farm which he left for someone else to sell.  He was married to Susannah Mathis whose father, Edward Mathis, was the Wagon Master.  Ira and Susannah had one young son named John W. when they moved.  [This should read two, since Ned was born in 1858.]  The farm in Alabama did sell, but he did not receive the money until after the war.  It was in Confederate dollars, so he really gave it away."

The first census Ira is listed on in Shelby Co., TX is 1870, although his war pension application said he lived in Shelby Co. during the war.  He was recorded on the 1850 census for DeKalb Co., AL, and the 1870 through 1910 censuses in Shelby Co., TX.  In 1910, listed as Susia, she stated that all ten of her ten children were living.  (R‑8, R‑14, R‑15, R‑200)

GENERATION 3

 

CHILDREN OF ALEXANDER GRAVES (2) AND DRUSILLA SANDERS

Esther Hetty (or Hettie) Graves (15), called Hettie, was born 30 Jan. 1823 (or 1825), and died after 1870, probably in TX.  She married William Chaney (or Cheney), son of John Chaney and Lydia ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 20 Feb. 1840[8] in Blount Co., AL.  He was born about 1818 in TN, and also died after 1870.  He was a brother of A. Jackson Chaney who married Cary Brown (sister of Judy Brown), and John Chaney who married Minerva Griffin.

It is family tradition that the family moved to Texas about 1857-58, and that William Chaney, son of A. Jackson and Cary Chaney also moved to TX about 1859.  Children Lydia through James were born in AL; Enoch and Jasper in DeKalb Co. and the others in Blount Co.  William, Drusilla, and Thomas were born in TX.  This family was recorded on the 1850 census in DeKalb Co., AL, the 1860 census in Titus Co., TX, and the 1870 census in Ellis Co., TX.  (R‑13, R‑14, R‑25)

Sarah Selena Beeson Graves (19), called Selena, was born 27 Oct. 1831 in Blount Co., AL, and died in 1895; she was called Amy S. on the 1880 census.  She married Calvin Chamblee, son of Robert Carter Chamblee and Mary Warren, about 1848 in Blount Co., AL.  He was born about 1824 and died 8 July 1891, both in Blount Co., AL, and was buried in Gum Springs Cem., Blount Co., AL.  Their children were born in Blount Co. AL, but several of them moved to TX.

Information on several genealogy websites in 2005 indicates that Calvin Chamblee’s wife was actually Amy Selena Holt, daughter of Charles Holt; Calvin and ‘Salene’ were living with the John Holt family in Blount Co., AL in 1850, but that neither proves or disproves the Holt connection.  Other sources say that Selena was Selena Beeson who first married an unknown Graves about 1846 and then married Calvin about 1848.  No marriage record for Calvin or Selena has been located.

R‑13 has a copy of William Vernon Chamblee’s death certificate which lists his mother’s maiden name as Graves.  (R‑8, R‑13, R‑25, R‑39, R‑42, R‑43, R‑44)

Celia Nation Graves (20) was born 26 Oct. 1833 in Blount Co., AL, and died after 1910, probably in Hunt Co., TX.  She first married William P. Aycock on 18 Aug. 1852[10] in Blount Co., AL.  He apparently died before 1860; Celia and her children were recorded on the 1860 census in Blountsville; in 1870, she was again recorded in Blountsville with only two children, F. H., a 16-year old female, and W. S., an 11-year old female].  She married second James St. Clair on 15 (or 16[11]) April 1874 in Blount Co., AL.  They were recorded on the 1880 census in Hunt Co., TX.  He was born about 1822 in AL, and died before 1900.  Celia was recorded on the 1900 and 1910 censuses as a widow in Hunt Co., TX; only one of her three children was living.  In 1900, two St. Clair stepsons and a granddaughter, Minnie Rambo, born in Texas in May 1884 lived with her.  In 1910, a grandson, Clyde Ham, born about 1883 in AL, his wife Ethel, and son J. K., lived with her.  On his World War I Draft Registration Card, Ham is listed as Melton Clyde Ham, born 13 Oct. 1882.  It is unclear if these are actually Aycock descendants.  (R‑13, R‑25, R‑200)

Wood on 19 Sept. 1866[13] in Blount Co., AL.  She was born 23 April 1841, died 14 Nov. 1906, and was also buried in Graves Cem.  He lived on his father's farm to age 90.  This family was recorded on the 1880 and the 1900-1930 censuses in Blount Co., AL.  (R‑13, R‑25, R‑39, R‑200, R‑203)

CHILDREN OF HIRAM GRAVES (3) AND JUDY BROWN

Elizabeth ("Betty" or "Betsy") Ann Graves (28) was born 17 Feb. 1826 in Blount Co., AL, and died 16 June 1911 in DeKalb Co., AL.  She married John Samuel Smith about 1846, probably in DeKalb Co., AL, although no marriage record is known.  He was born about 1823, probably in Pickens Dist., SC, and died 15 May 1869 in DeKalb Co., AL.  They moved to DeKalb Co., AL, probably at the time of their marriage.  The family was recorded on the 1850 and 1860 censuses in DeKalb Co., AL.  John’s age was recorded as 23, born SC in 1850 and 31, born GA in 1860.  In 1860, Elizabeth was listed as Edy.  They were both buried in Providence Hill Cem.  Their children were born in DeKalb Co.

John is listed in military records as John M. Smith.  He appears on a roll of independent scouts in Baxter Gilbreath’s company in the service of the Union Army, although it was never officially linked to federal service.  His birthplace is listed as Pickens Dist., SC.  He and his oldest son Martin P. were probably conscripts, since their service began March 1, 1865.  (R‑14, R‑18, R‑200, R‑207)

Elizabeth (Graves) Smith (right) and her sister, Polly (Graves) Roden

 

Esther Graves[17] (29) was born about 1829 in AL, died 22 May 1903, and was buried in Wilson Cem., Winston Co., AL.  She married Thomas W. (“Tom”) Wilson on 28 March 1851 in DeKalb Co., AL[18].  This was the first appearance of Thomas Wilson in official records.  “Although unconfirmed by official records, Thomas was believed to be from Anderson, Abbeville District, SC, and his siblings or half-siblings are believed to include B. F. (Ben) Wilson, Abbie Wilson Flannagan, and Sally Wilson Powell[19].  Thomas Wilson was born 4 Oct. 1830 in SC, died 16 July 1905, and was also buried in Wilson Cem.  Thomas and Esther were early residents of extreme southeast Winston Co., AL.

At the time of the 1860 census, Thomas and Esther Wilson already had 4 children: John L., William, Alexander, and Susan Juda.  Also living with Thomas in 1860 was Ordrerl Wilson, a 57 year-old female who could have been Thomas’ mother or other relative, although no confirmation has been found to support any relationship.  Thomas and his family lived in the eastern census district of Walker Co., AL, near the Hanby’s Mills Post Office.  Hanby’s Mills was located on the Mulberry River approximately 3 miles southeast of Arkadelphia, AL[20].  Tom owned 40 acres of land of which 35 were cultivated for farming.  During the year ending June 1, 1860, Tom tended 3 horses, 1 milk cow, 2 oxen, and 2 other cows.  With this livestock and real estate, Tom supported his family and produced 200 bushels of Indian corn, picked 2000 pounds of cotton (5 bales), and made 10 pounds of butter[21].

In 1860, Tom and his family were listed next to the B. F. Wilson residence and very near the residence of Washington Wilson[22].  B. F. and Washington had 120 and 524 acres of land, respectively (35 and 130 acres were cultivated).  Washington had moved from South Carolina in the 1830’s and had entered government land in 1835 farther down the Mulberry River in Township 14, Range 5[23].  Although the 1840 and 1850 census records do not indicate that Washington had a son of Thomas’ age, it is possible that Washington may have been a relative that influenced Thomas’ decision to settle so very nearby.[24]

In 1861, the fifth of Thomas’ children, Hiram, was born.  In approximately 1862[25], Thomas, Esther, and their family moved to the Rock Creek area of Township 12, Range 6.  Thomas did not own any slaves and, like many other residents of the Winston County hills, chose not to fight in the Civil War.  Thomas avoided Confederate service by hiding out in caves along the Rock Creek bluffs to elude the conscription troops.  These caves are still visible when the Smith Lake water level is low.  Thomas periodically emerged from hiding to help others with the crops or to make shoes for people in the community.  Thomas was said to be near-sighted.[26]

Living near Thomas was his good friend, James Calvert.  James also sought to avoid the conscription troops but was found and taken off to war.  In a letter to his wife, Delilah, James wrote asking for news about his neighbors with a specific message for his friend Thomas Wilson:

“… I have herd that the yankes is in Walker I want to hear from thare whether it is so or not I want you to right tell me whether you have got whet sode or not, what you have dun and what you can get dun right what all the nabers is doing tell thomas wilson to sell that jack if he can sell him to any advantage …”[27]

James never returned to Winston County, and died of pneumonia in a Union prisoner of war camp.

Thomas’ activities immediately following the Civil War are unknown.  However, the last 2 of Thomas’ 7 children were born in 1864 and 1866.  In a single deed executed on Feb. 9, 1870, Thomas purchased 840 acres of land from John L. Reed of Winston Co., AL for $1000.  Fourteen of the twenty-one 40-acre tracts were contiguously located in Sections 13 and 14 of Township 12, Range 6.  These adjacent tracts include the land upon which the Wilson Cemetery was established (NW of SW of Section 13 of Township 12, Range 6)[28].  In the 1870 census, Thomas’ real estate was valued at $1500.

In 1877 and 1879, Thomas and Esther saw their sons, William and John L., marry Nancy Ann and Susan Agnes Blevins.  John L. eventually moved away and settled in Lampasas Co., TX[29].  In 1879 and 1889, Alexander and his sister Sarah Wilson married Sarah Elizabeth Calvert and James Calvert, Jr., children of James and Delilah (Stewart) Calvert.  These marriages created many double-first-cousin grandchildren of Thomas and Esther Wilson.  Delilah (b.c. 1824) was a daughter of Samuel Stewart.  James (b.c. 1829) was a son of John W. (b. 5 (or 8) Oct. 1806) and Elizabeth McCutcheon (b.c. 1808) Calvert.  Elizabeth was a daughter of John D. McCutcheon.  John W. Calvert was a son of Joseph Calvert (b. 5 Jan. 1782) and Elizabeth ‑‑‑‑‑‑ (b.c. 1785)[30].

By 1900, Thomas and Esther again lived alone in Winston Co., having raised their seven children.  Esther is believed to have died of tuberculosis in 1903 and Tom died in 1905.  They were both buried under a large cedar in Wilson Cemetery overlooking the Rock Creek branch of Smith Lake.  Their sons Hiram and Henry and daughters Juda and Sarah were also buried in the same family cemetery...”

According to the book by Aubrey E. Graves, soon after their marriage, Thomas and Esther left DeKalb Co., AL, and settled in what is now Winston Co., AL, and adjoining communities.  Most of the information that Aubrey had on this family was from the administration records of the estate of Hettie’s sister, Nancy, who died in 1916.  He stated that probable grandchildren include: John Wilson, Jasper, AL; Thomas Wilson, Arley, AL; Susie Lay, Arley, AL; George Wilson, Vindmont, AL (children of William Wilson).  The following were heirs of Hettie as of 1916 (all towns in AL):  William Wilson, Arley; Benjamin Wilson, Arley; Nathaniel Wilson, Arley; Hettie Reece, Logan (also children of William Wilson); Tommie Calvert, Jasper; Ida Siniard, Jasper (children of Sarah Wilson); Maudie Myers, Jasper; Frank Wilson, Ardell; Birdie Abbott, Ardell; Carrie Harbison, Ardell (children of Henry Wilson); Thomas Abbott, Camden; James Hiram Abbott, Jasper; J. Henry Abbott, Jasper; Sara Rushing, Jasper; Roxie Burrows, Ardell (children of Susan Juda Wilson).  (R‑17, R‑200)

Joshua ("Josh") Graves (30) was born 12 April 1831 in Blount Co., AL, died 14 Oct. 1918, and was buried in Providence Hill Cem., DeKalb Co., AL.  Early in his life, he moved to Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., with his parents.  He married Mary Jane Malinda Elenburg (or Ellenburg) daughter of Larkin Elenburg, in the spring of 1853 in a ceremony performed by W. C. Morgan.  She was born in 1838 and died 22 Aug. 1911.  Following their marriage, they continued to live near his father's plantation.  He was given a sizable tract of land, as were all of Hiram's children.

He was a farmer all his life, a Primitive Baptist, and a devoted husband and father.  When his wife died, he moved to Sand Mountain to live.  He moved with his daughters, Betty Berry and Parilee Haralson (or Harrelson), and they settled near the George H. Campbell homeplace, Joshua buying 40 acres nearby and the daughters buying 40 acres of the Campbell place.  He did no more farming after he moved to the Mountain.

During the Civil War he served in the Union Army in Co. G, 1st Alabama and Tennessee Regiment, Vidette Cavalry.  Joshua was a retiring man, with little visible temper and of a good disposition.

This family was recorded on the 1860 census in Lebanon, DeKalb Co., AL, the 1880 census in Township 9, DeKalb Co., AL., and the 1900 and 1910 censuses in Van Buren, DeKalb Co., AL

James Graves (31) was born in Oct. 1832 (according to the 1900 census) in Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL (or possibly in Blount Co., AL), and died after 1900.  He married Tapinus Griffin about 1853.  She was born about 1837 in GA, and died between 1880 and 1900.  They were recorded on the 1860-1880 censuses in DeKalb Co., AL.  James married second Frances ‑‑‑‑‑‑ about 1897.  They were recorded on the 1900 census in Collinsville, DeKalb Co., AL; they lived next door to his son Lincoln and his family.

James served during the Civil War in the Union Army, Co. G, 1st Alabama and Tennessee Regt., Vidette Cavalry.  There is a headstone in Providence Hill Cem., DeKalb Co., which bears this information and is probably his grave.  Also serving in the same company were his brothers, Joshua, Henry, and Alexander.  (R‑14, R‑25, R‑200)

Henry Graves (32) was born 4 July 1834 in Blount Co., AL, died 27 July 1916 in Foley, Baldwin Co., AL, and was buried at Mt. Pleasant Cem. on Sand Mountain a few miles from Ten Broeck, DeKalb Co., AL.  He was reared in Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL, near Collinsville.  He married Nancy Margaret Jones, called Margaret, daughter of George Washington Jones, on 9 Oct. 1853[32] in DeKalb Co., AL in a ceremony performed by Rev. Samuel L. Smith.  After their marriage, they continued to live in the vicinity of the Hiram Graves homestead.  Margaret was born 8 Dec. 1838 in DeKalb Co., AL, died 10 (or 16) July 1899 in DeKalb Co., and was buried in Mt. Pleasant Cem., near Groveoak, AL.

Henry's Civil War pension papers show he was buried at Oak Grove, DeKalb Co., AL, which contradicts the above burial information.

In or about 1897, he and his wife moved to Sand Mountain.  After Margaret died, he went to live with his children, mainly Charlsie Bell.  They had moved near the "Gipson Stand", known as the location of U. V. Gipson's home and place of business a few miles west of Fyffe, AL.  Henry lived among his children first here and later in south Alabama where the Bells moved, and at Albertville, AL, where the Gipsons moved.  Henry was living in Baldwin Co., AL, at the time of his death, but was returned to DeKalb Co. for burial.  Henry was of a kind and gracious disposition, and gregarious in his affection towards children.

Henry, with his three brothers previously mentioned, served during the Civil War in the Union Army, 1st Alabama and Tennessee Regt., Vidette Cavalry.

The family of Margaret Jones, Henry's wife, is an interesting one.  Two brothers went to Sand Valley, between Collinsville and Gadsden, AL, around 1815 to 1820.  They were George Washington Jones and Abraham Jones.  The children of the former were:  Margaret Jones Graves, Dicy Jones, Abe Jones, and Renee Jones Green. The children of the latter were:  William Conner Jones, Wat Jones, Fannie Jones Gilbreath, Dicy Jones Gilbreath, Sara Jones Swann, and Ellen Jones Chumley.  Their descendants are numerous throughout DeKalb Co. and vicinity.

Alexander Graves (33) was born about 1838 in Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL, died 16 Jan. 1916, and was buried in Corinth Cem., Fyffe, DeKalb Co., AL.  He grew up in the Valley, married there, and settled on a nearby farm given him by his father.  It is believed that most, if not all, of his older brothers and sisters were born in Blount Co., AL.  He first married Mary Jane Elizabeth Carns, daughter of David Rice Carns, on 4 Aug. 1859 by William B. Beeson, Justice of the Peace.  She was born in Sept. 1838 in AL, and died between 1900 and 1910.

An interesting story was told about Mary by her grandson, Aubrey E. Graves, as related to him by his father, William Joshua Graves.  "Grandmother was noted for her homespun remedies for almost any malady which befell the family of hers, and, undoubtedly, many of them proved their worth all through the years with her large line of descendants.  Also, she was a great believer in the science of astrology and could tell her children exactly in what phase of the moon to plant corn, when to butcher hogs, when to shear their sheep or make their soap.  Our father inherited this trait to some extent but never to the making of it a fine art, which grandmother did.  But it worked exceedingly well in some cases and, of course, in some cases it failed."

About 1890, or perhaps a little earlier, Alexander moved to Sand Mountain and settled at a large spring a few miles north of Fyffe.  He received mail at old White Oak post office.  He bought a large tract of land, and his son William bought 80 acres of land from him and another son Hiram bought 160 acres adjoining William's farm.

Alexander was a farmer and a Primitive Baptist ("hardshell") preacher.  After he settled on the mountain, he preached there and also made periodic trips back to the valley to preach.  He would leave his family on weekends and ride a "hump-back" mule to the valley, which was no short trip, and there preach for the sheer love of his calling and without the expectation of ever receiving a penny by way of recompense.  Many were the marriages at which he officiated, and many were the families he consoled at the last rites for loved ones.

Following the death of his first wife, Mary, in later years he married Lucy (‑‑‑‑‑‑) Brannon about 1910.  She was born about 1841 in GA. They separated before his death, although they were recorded together on the 1910 census in Corinth, DeKalb Co., AL.  Lucy indicated that her marriage to Alexander was her third marriage.

Alexander Graves served in the Civil War for several months in the Union Army, Co. G, 1st Alabama and Tennessee Regt., Vidette Cavalry.

Mary (“Polly”) Graves (34) was born about 1840 in DeKalb Co., AL, and died after May 1910, probably in Corinth, DeKalb Co., AL.  Mary’s age was listed as 10 in 1850, but varied from census to census.  She married George Roden, son of Vincent Roden and Sarena ‑‑‑‑‑‑, about 1857.  He was born in May 1833 in TN, and died after May 1910, probably in Corinth, AL.  This family was recorded on the 1860 census in Guntersville, Marshall Co., AL, the 1870 census in Attalla, Etowah Co., AL, the 1880 census in Marshall Co., AL, and the 1900 and 1910 censuses in Corinth, AL.  In 1910, George and Mary lived with son Vincent and daughter-in-law Eliza.  In 1900 and 1910, Mary stated that of her nine children five were living.  It is believed that all their children lived their lives either in DeKalb Co. or nearby.  Many of the grandchildren lived there and in Chattanooga, TN.

Martha Graves (36) was born in Dec. 1843 in DeKalb Co., AL, and died after 1920, probably in Bayou, Baxter Co., AR.  She married William Hunter Wilson, a widower with one child, on 25 Dec. 1870[33] in DeKalb Co., AL.  He was born about 1841 in SC.  Shortly after their marriage they left DeKalb Co. and settled in the small village of Vidette, Fulton Co., AR.  They were apparently successful planters and homeowners there.  However, on the night of Dec. 20, 1893, Hunter Wilson was killed in a robbery in which his savings were taken, his house was burned, and his wife barely survived.  The story of this tragic event has been well told by their son, William, in a written account of 6 or 7 pages.  (R‑200)

Frances Jane (“Fannie”) Graves (38) was born 7 April 1847 in Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL, died there 12 Sept. 1932, and was buried in Providence Hill Cem., DeKalb Co., near Collinsville, AL.  She married Hiram Thomas Elenburg (or Ellenburg), son of Larkin Elenburg, on 13 June 1870.  He was born 24 Aug. 1848 in AL, died 11 March 1929 in DeKalb Co., AL, and was also buried in Providence Hill Cem.

The Elenburgs were prosperous farmers and at one time owned 360 acres of rich creek bottom land.  Like the Templetons, they had a huge larder stocked with provisions of all kinds, which tempted the kin as well as passers-by to pause for a meal and perhaps a few days visit.  People were always welcome there.  The home was furnished with a beautiful organ, a rare item in those days, and Mary played it.

Both Fannie and Thomas possessed a keen sense of humor, and those visiting and passing were treated to a rural, somewhat primitive, kind of jocular humor so much admired among these early people.

They were Republicans, as were practically all of the Hiram Graves clan.  They were also members of the Primitive Baptist Church, so common among the descendants of John Graves (b. 1779).

Fannie had dark hair and was of medium build.  She was a friendly person and liked to talk.

Many of the descendants of this large family still live in DeKalb and nearby Marshall counties in AL, although many have migrated to TX, OK, and AK.  (R‑27, R‑33, R‑200)

Artha Ann Graves (39) was born 27 Feb. 1853 in DeKalb Co., AL, on the Hiram Graves homestead in Big Wills Valley, died 7 Aug. 1927, and was buried in Providence Hill Baptist Church Cem., DeKalb Co., AL.  She married John L. Templeton on 28 Dec. 1870 in DeKalb Co., AL.  He was born 24 July 1847, died 24 April 1922, and was also buried in Providence Hill Cem.  This family was recorded on the 1880 census in DeKalb Co., AL, and the 1900-1920 censuses in Van Buren, DeKalb Co., AL.  In 1900 and 1910, Artha stated that of her twelve children nine were living.

They were closely associated with the Elenburgs (the family of Arthy's older sister, Mary Jane), who also lived near the Hiram Graves’ home.  The Templetons lived there for a while and then moved to the Hiram B. “Uncle Bud” Graves’ farm at Edward's Bridge near Collinsville when Uncle Bud's family moved to Sand Mountain.

Their home was noted for its hospitality, abundance and quality of food, and a knack for preparing it for the table, according to some of the older people who had the good fortune to visit in this home.  We are told that they slaughtered as many as 14 hogs in a day, entertained four or five preachers at one time, and had a splendid peach orchard from which the girls canned hundreds of cans of peaches in a season.  They eventually owned 196 acres of land.

For the most part, it is believed the Templeton descendants have continued to live in DeKalb Co., AL, and adjoining AL counties.

Hiram Beeson Graves (41), known to his close acquaintances as "Uncle Bud", was born in Jan. 1856[34] in Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL, died 30 June 1915, and was buried in Providence Hill Cem. near Collinsville, DeKalb Co., AL, where many of the early Graves family members were buried.  He first married Dollie Smith on 3 Feb. 1882[35] in DeKalb Co., AL.  He lived and reared his family by his first wife in Wills Valley.  He worked on his father's farm until he married, then moved into the house with his parents and lived there several years.  Later, he built his home on a large tract of land he had acquired at Edward's Bridge, near Collinsville, AL.  It was here that his daughter, Myrtie, was born, and that his first wife died.

Following Dollie's death, he married second Marinda Emeline Chandler, daughter of Daniel C. Chandler and Evaline Keener, on 10 Aug. 1898 in DeKalb Co., AL.  She was born about 1873 in AL, and died 9 May 1932 in DeKalb Co., AL.  The Templetons bought his house around 1900, and he moved to Sand Mountain and bought a small store in Fyffe then owned by Vincent Roden and James Graves.  Here he purchased a large tract of adjoining land and entered the mercantile business.

From a small store and a small business, this establishment prospered.  The store was enlarged and Uncle Bud became postmaster at Fyffe.  He was a man of few words but had an acumen for business.  Soon his son, Wilbur, joined him in the enterprise, and it became Graves & Son, located in a large building across the road from the little store and dwelling.  Wilbur built himself a house nearby and lived there for many years.  At Uncle Bud's death, Wilbur became the owner of the business.

Uncle Bud’s picture is shown above.  (R‑1, R‑200)

Nell Sasser (R‑3) wrote: "Grandpa Ballew (Johnnie’s husband) died at age 53 of double pneumonia from trying to get his crop in when a storm came.  She never remarried, & with the help from God & everyone else she raised her family.  Grandpa’s sister’s son & wife were killed in a car wreck.  Grandma took their three children in till they went off to school.  She cared for Grandpa’s brother’s children (3 of them).  Uncle Roy’s first wife died in childbirth so he & three of his children moved in with her, until he remarried many years later.  She was a remarkable lady, highly respected, dignified, hard working and religious.  Everyone loved her.

I've heard my mother speak of barn raisings, quiltings, etc., they used to do.  There was a big round well in the yard.  The water was so cold it's said one could air condition a home with it.  They kept their perishables in a spring down behind the house.

They owned a lot of property which still belongs to the children or grandchildren.

Locke Graves's old homeplace was located at the foot of a mountain not far from there.  Mama said she had been there many times.  Several of his children moved to Texas.  Mama also said she had heard relatives speak of "Doc", "Huse" [Houston], and Hiram Graves."

All their children were born in Blount Co., AL, the first 5 in Liberty, the next in Blountsville, the next in Liberty, the next in Blountsville, and the last 5 in Liberty.  (R‑3, R‑10, R‑11)

Sarah Telitha Graves (212) was born 2 April 1861 (or 1862 according to the 1900 census) in DeKalb Co., AL, died 12 Oct. 1909 in Norman, Cleveland Co., OK, and was buried in Norman, OK.  She married James Franklin Thompson, son of Jeremiah Jasper Franklin Thompson and Eliza Ann Newgent, about 1876.  He was born 25 Oct. 1855 in AL, died 22 Feb. 1947 in Walters, Cotton Co., OK, and was buried in Walters Cem.  He was a 4th generation descendant of Jeremiah Roden and Susannah Kirkland of DeKalb Co., AL.  They were recorded on the 1880 and 1900 censuses in Etowah Co., AL; their children were born in AL.

Iva Powell (R‑19) wrote:  "Grandma Sarah started having problems before they left Ala.  Nerves caused by menopause problem, etc.  After they moved to Okla., they had to put her in an institution.  That's where she died.  I think that is why Graves family left them out, but Grandma and Grandpa Thompson raised a nice looking, intelligent family of children.  None of the children or grandchildren inherited a nervous condition.  Her death certificate lists she died of a bowel infection and complications of menopause.  A lot of women have the same problem these days but they have medicine to control it.

So after Grandma Sarah died, James Franklin Thompson married Sarah Elizabeth Brooks, a widow with seven children, married on 1915 at Ryan, Okla.  His stepchildren were: Will Brooks, Hamp Brooks, Bessie Brooks, Alice Brooks, Sue Brooks, Luther Brooks, Cecil Brooks.  One of her children died before they were married.  They didn't live together too many years until they separated and Grandpa lived with different children, mostly with his daughter Ida, my mother and us, until she couldn't keep him.  We learned a lot and respected Grandpa Thompson.  My mother Ida was his favorite daughter.  My mother always said I was like her Grandma, Nancy Margaret Graves, and looked like her.  I never knew either of my grandmothers, only Grandpa Thompson, James Franklin."  (R‑19)

They lived a few miles west of Fyffe, AL, at a crossroads known at least until recent times as the "Gipson Stand", because it was there that he operated a successful mercantile business until about 1913.  They then moved to Albertville where he owned a general store and hardware until his retirement about 1938.

The Gipson family is remarkable in that every member of the family finished college, and at least four of the descendants became practicing physicians.

This family was recorded on the 1910 and 1920 censuses in DeKalb Co., AL and the 1930 census in DeKalb Co., AL; their children were born in AL.  (R‑19, R‑200)

CHILDREN OF ALEXANDER GRAVES (33) AND MARY J. E. CARNS

Martha Jane Graves (218) was born 8 Aug. 1860 in Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL, died 15 March 1931 in Fyffe, DeKalb Co., AL, and was buried in Corinth Cem., Fyffe.  She married John Wesley Campbell about 1887.  He was born in Jan. 1861 in AL, and died in Feb. 1935 in DeKalb Co. AL.  This family was recorded on the 1900-1930 censuses in DeKalb Co. AL.  Their children were born in AL.

Martha was born and reared in Wills Valley near her grandfather, Hiram Graves, and her two daughters, Mary and Alta, were born there.  When Mary was only a year old, they moved to Sand Mountain and settled in a little house which was across the road from the homeplace in Fyffe, AL, which they later built.  They bought 80 acres from Anderson Burke, 40 acres from the railroad company, and other acreage from other parties, until they owned a large farm.

Martha, affectionately called "Aunt Mat", was an unusual character in many respects.  With strong convictions, she frequently spoke out in support of whatever she believed in and believed to be right.  She loved her church; she was an Old-Time Baptist, or Primitive Baptist, as was her father before her.  She especially loved the Old Songs found in the Psalm Book, songs seldom heard in modern churches, and which were sung without the accompaniment of an organ or piano.

John Wesley Campbell was a quiet man, sincere, and skilled as a builder.  He built the substantial home across the road from their original home, where their two daughters later lived.  He was a farmer and carpenter by trade, and was successful in both endeavors.  This family owned one of the very first automobiles in that part of the country, an early Model T Ford.  The following picture shows them in front of that automobile.  (R‑200)

Rice Alexander Graves (219) was born 4 April 1863 in Big Wills Valley, near Collinsville, DeKalb Co., AL. and died 23 Dec. 1942 in DeKalb Co., AL.  He married Martha Henry, daughter of Thomas Henry and Rebecca ‑‑‑‑‑‑, about 1887.  She was born in June 1869 in AL.  They were recorded on the 1900-1920 censuses in Lathamville, DeKalb Co., AL.  In 1900, Martha stated that only six of her seven children were living.

Rice Alexander Graves was named for his father, Alexander Graves, and his grandfather, David Rice Carns. He lived in the Valley for many years, and then moved to Sand Mountain and settled near Crossville, AL, on a large farm.  He lived near James Carns and William Carns, two of his uncles, and there successfully farmed and reared a large family of ten children.  Eight of these children were still living in 1968, Thomas and Walter having died earlier.  After most of his children had married and left home, he moved to Collinsville where he lived for several years.

Although Rice Graves was primarily a farmer, he was a man of many talents.  He was of an extrovert personality, met people easily, was a good talker, and this disposition prompted him to do sales work in his later life. 

Martha was a devoted mother and mate.  Modest and retiring, she quietly went about the duties involved in caring for and rearing her large family.  For the most part, the children lived in various places in Georgia, although the oldest son, Richard, continued to live on Sand Mountain.

Pictures of Rice Alexander Graves and his wife, Martha (Henry) Graves, are shown below.  (R‑37, R‑200)

Hiram L. Graves (220) was born 7 June 1865 in Big Wills Valley, near Collinsville, DeKalb Co., AL, and died 19 March 1947 in DeKalb Co., AL.  He lived in Big Wills Valley until manhood, when he moved with his father, Alexander Graves, to Sand Mountain, and settled on a large farm.  He married Nora L. White, daughter of James White, on 2 March 1890 in DeKalb Co., AL.  She was born in 1873 and died 9 March 1943 in DeKalb Co., AL.  Hiram and Nora were buried next to each other in Corinth Cem., Fyffe, DeKalb Co., AL.

“From early childhood, Hiram was crippled as a result of infantile paralysis, and was destined to use crutches the rest of his life.  His cousin, Hiram T. Graves, was also a cripple, but Uncle Hiram came to be known as "Crutch Hiram" to distinguish the two.  Hiram L. Graves, being crippled, realized the need of an education, so he prepared himself to teach and taught for many years, his students including his wife, Nora White, as well as her own mother.”  Nora was a patient, calm, and devoted mother, who did a good job in rearing her large family.

Hiram was resourceful, outgoing in personality, and, despite his disability, he supported his growing family well.  Following his teaching career, he was elected tax collector for DeKalb Co. and served many years.  He became justice of the peace and held this office for many years also.  He performed many marriages, and there are hundreds of deeds and mortgages bearing his attestation as a justice of the peace.  In later years, he carried the star mail route from Chavies to Fyffe, AL, driving a horse and buggy.  With all these activities, he still continued to operate a large farm when his sons became large enough to cultivate and harvest the crops.  He was a member of the Primitive Baptist Church and was devoted to this faith.

Angeline Graves (221) was born 7 March 1869 in Big Wills Valley, near Collinsville, DeKalb Co., AL, died in Fyffe, DeKalb Co., AL, and was buried in Corinth Cem., Fyffe.  R‑25 listed her name as Arthusan Angeline Graves.  She married James ("Jim") Minor Wilks on 10 Sept. 1893 in DeKalb Co., AL.  He was born in Oct. 1854 in AL.  They lived throughout their married life in several communities on Sand Mountain.  He was a farmer, and one of the earliest recollections of their nephew, Aubrey E. Graves, was going to the sorghum mill at his grandfather Graves' Big Spring where his uncle Jim Wilks crushed the cane and cooked the juice to make sorghum syrup in the fall of the year.  It was an event in the life of a young boy not to be easily forgotten, and people came from miles around with their cane to be processed.

This family was recorded on the 1900 census in Corinth, DeKalb Co., AL, the 1910 census in Blue Pond, DeKalb Co., AL, and the 1920 census in Corinth, AL; their children were born in AL.

William Joshua Graves (222) was born 19 Feb. 1871 in Big Wills Valley, near Collinsville, DeKalb Co., AL, died 10 Feb. 1948, and was buried in Corinth Cem., Fyffe, DeKalb Co., AL.  Like his two older brothers, Rice and Hiram, he lived in the Valley until young manhood, living and working with his father on his farm.  He used to tell how he swam and fished in Big Wills Creek and how his crippled brother, Hiram, could outswim him.  When in his early 20's, he moved to Sand Mountain.

He married Cora Teague, daughter of John Teague and Matilda Presley, on 4 July 1895[91] in DeKalb Co., AL.  She was born 4 March 1880 in Marshall Co., AL, but moved in infancy to Guest, DeKalb Co., on Sand Mountain.  Cora was only 15 years old when she married.  John Teague fought in the Mexican War of 1848 and soldiered four years as a private in the Confederate Army in the Civil War, fighting all the way from Georgia to Appomattox.  Cora was devoted to her children, sacrificing so that they were all well cared for, and her lot was not an easy one.  In 1968, she was living in frail health at the age of 81.  She possessed to a marked degree the fortitude and courage which her father, John Teague, possessed.

After marriage, William and Cora first lived next to the Big Spring on his father's place.  Within a year or two he bought 80 acres of land adjoining his father, built a house, and this is where most of his children were born.

Aubrey Graves wrote “Our father was of a disposition and personality in striking contrast to that of his two brothers, Hiram and Rice.  They were extroverts; he was an introvert.  They were outgoing in meeting people; father was reserved.  Both of his brothers told a good story and were good talkers, while our father told a poor joke and in conversations came to the point without embellishments.

His ambition to enter some kind of business was thwarted when he found himself with a young wife and growing family.  His life was one of hard work, from preparing the trees for lumber to build his modest house to splitting rails to fence a large pasture.  He was never blessed with many worldly possessions but he derived a great pleasure in providing for his family as best he could.  His was a kind and forgiving nature and he much preferred to admonish and advise and leave the administration of punishment to others.  He belonged to the Primitive Baptist Church and had a strong religious conviction.

In brief, our hearth and home was far from affluent, many extras would have been welcome;  however, we had plenty to eat and wear, and today, with nostalgic feelings, we look back on a happy, healthful childhood.”

CHILDREN OF HIRAM BEESON GRAVES (41)

Wilbur Vincent Graves (254) was born 8 Jan. 1883 in Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL, died 31 Oct. 1964 in Collinsville, DeKalb Co., AL, and was buried in Collinsville Cem.  He married Martha ("Mattie") Beulah Gilbreath, daughter of Oliver Dobson Gilbreath and Sally Matthews, on 12 Dec. 1909.  She was born in 1886, died 28 May 1960 in Collinsville, and was also buried in Collinsville Cem.

When Wilbur's father moved from the Valley to Sand Mountain, Wilbur remained in Collinsville, where he attended school, and at a very early age (18 or 19) was licensed to teach school.  However, his career was to be in business, for he soon followed his father to Fyffe, AL, where he also entered the mercantile business.  He became postmaster at Fyffe, where he served from 1905 until 1918, with the post office being located in his large store.  His brother, Walter, became a rural mail carrier, a position he held for many years.  As a child, Aubrey E. Graves recalled “looking with anxiety for the approach of his white mail buggy when we had an order in the mails and it seemed to be delayed.”

Wilbur succeeded in business.  He extended credit in the spring to countless farmers in order for them to make a crop, yet he was never known to enforce payment through legal proceedings.

He later entered the wholesale grocery business in Albertville, AL, and finally moved to Collinsville where he owned a large department store which his son Wilbur later operated.

A Baptist, he was always interested in schools and the betterment of his community.

His picture is shown above.  (R‑1, R‑15, R‑200)

Collinsville Cem.  No children.  He was 12 years old when his family moved to Albertville, where he attended school.  He attended Auburn Univ. and received a B.S. degree in landscape engineering in 1935.  He served for a time as a landscape supervisor for DeSoto Park.  He was manager of W. V. Graves & Co. in Collinsville until his health failed.

 

Walter Hiram Graves (255) was born 1 June 1885 in Big Wills Valley, DeKalb Co., AL near Collinsville, AL, died 15 May 1972 in Rainsville, DeKalb Co., AL, and was buried in Corinth Cem., Fyffe, DeKalb Co., AL.  He married Macie Laura Gravitt, daughter of Lodrick Gravitt and Nancy Reed, a long-time resident of Fyffe, AL, about 1910.  Lodrick operated one of the first telephone switchboards in Fyffe, AL.  Macie was born 27 Aug. 1889 in Crossville, AL, died 29 April 1967, and was buried in Fyffe Cem., Fyffe, AL.

Walter moved to Sand Mountain with his parents when he was a small lad.  They settled at Fyffe, where he grew up.  He engaged in farming, but it was not long before he became one of the first rural mail carriers serving the Fyffe post office.  In those days the roads across Sand Mountain were little more than paths, and when rains came only a horseback rider or buggy could travel.  The earliest recollections of Aubrey E. Graves were of the daily delivery of the mail because this was the only connection with the outside world.  The mail consisted of a semi-weekly newspaper, an occasional letter, and parcel post packages from some mail-order concern.

Walter Graves carried the mail for many, many years, during which time his brother, Wilbur Graves, was postmaster.  Following this work, he resumed his farming activities and farmed for many years along with his several sons.  He later retired and moved to Gadsden, AL, where he lived in later years.  After the death of his wife, he moved to Rainsville, AL.

A picture of Walter and Macie is shown above.  (R‑1, R‑200)
