GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF JOSEPH GRAVES (1) AND ELIZABETH HAMPTON

Benjamin Stephen Graves (2) was born 4 April 1801, was baptized 10 May 1801, and died 10 Oct. 1872, all in Stanstead Abbots, Hertfordshire, England. He married Mary Hutchins on 6 July 1822 in Stanstead Abbots. She was born about 1811 and apparently died between 1841 and 1851, since she was listed in the 1841 census and Benjamin was listed as a widower in the 1851 census.

He apparently married Ann ------ as his second wife after 1851, since they were shown as married on the 1861 census. She was born about 1810 in Co. Cork, Ireland, cloth cap maker.

Benjamin was a farm laborer. His death record is somewhat puzzling, since it says he was 78 years of age, indicating a birth date of 1794. (R-1)
