6. Elizabeth Medheart, b.c. 1794 (?).

 

Enos Grave (or Graves) (4) was born about 1778. (It is not certain that he was a son of Jesse Graves.) He married Betty ------ about 1798. According to William Wade Hinshaw, Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, vol. 4, p. 89, the family arrived in Westland Monthly Meeting in western PA in 1796, and went to Whitewater Monthly Meeting in IN in 1816.

It seems unlikely that Enos was a son of Jesse. According to other information, Enos was a son of Jacob Graves and Rebecca Langley, descended from Thomas Graves of New Castle Co., DE (gen. 85) as follows: Thomas1, Samuel2, Jonathan3, Jacob4, Enos5. It is possible that Jesse was a brother of cousin of Jacob. (R-1)
