DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM GRAVES OF TN & IN

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

William Graves (1) was born 8 Jan. 1816 in Tenn., and died 13 May 1884, probably in Hartford City, Blackford Co., Ind. He first married Sarah Ballinger about 1837-38 in Indiana, probably in the vicinity of Hartford City. She was born in Tenn., and died in 1860 of "confinement." William and at least two of his children, William and George, were listed in the 1880 census for Washington Twp., Blackford Co., Ind.

William Graves secondly married Elizabeth Connett on 7 Aug. 1862 in Ind., probably in the vicinity of Hartford City. She was probably born about 1824 in Ohio, and died 21 March 1900. She had first been married to a Mr. Cole and had several children by him, including Alfred Cole, born 1858, and Greenberry Cole, born 1861.

William served in the Civil War (?), and was listed as a voter in 1883 in Hartford City, Blackford Co., Ind. He was a farmer in Grant Co., Ind. (Upland Post Office) in 1870.

Is it possible that William was a son of William Graves (descended from immigrant Thomas Graves of Hartford, CT), who was born about 1786 in Blount Co., TN, and who married Mary Ballinger as his second wife? (R-1)
