DESCENDANTS OF STEPHEN GRAVES OF NY & JENNINGS CO., IN

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Stephen Graves (1) was probably born about 1775, probably in NY.  He married ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  He was in the 1830 census for Vernon Twp., Jennings Co., IN, page 154.  His household consisted of 1 male 15-20 (probably Aaron), 1 male 50-60 (prob. Stephen, b. 1770-1780), 2 females 10-15 (Caroline and another dau.), 1 female 40-50 (prob. his wife, b. 1780-1790).  He was in the 1840 census for Jennings Co., IN, with 1 male 60-70, and 1 female 60-70.  Listed next to them was Orin Graves, his son, and Robert McConnell, his son-in-law.

It seems possible that Stephen was descended from John Graves of Concord, MA (genealogy 166).  In 1830, the only other Graves in Jennings Co., IN, were Benjamin and Eliphalet in Montgomery Twp.  Eliphalet was a son of Benjamin, descended from John Graves.  In 1850, all the Graves families in Jennings Co. (Eliphalet, Jedediah, Nelson, and Stephen S.) were in Marion Twp. and were descended from John Graves.  It is interesting to note, however, that in both 1830 and 1850, none of these Graves families lived in the same township as Stephen or his children.  (R‑1)

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF STEPHEN GRAVES (1)

Hannah Graves (2) was born about 1807 in NY.  She married Robert McConnell.  He was born about 1800 in PA.  They were in the 1850 census for Geneva Twp., Jennings Co., IN, page 304, dwelling 211, with Mary Winkler, 16, also in the household.  He was a farmer.  (R‑1)

Children - McConnell

  5.  Stephen McConnell, b.c. 1830.

  6.  Lafayette McConnell, b.c. 1833.

  7.  Cordelia McConnell, b.c. 1842.

 

Aaron (or Orrin) Graves (3) was born 26 July 1814 in NY, and died 4 July 1870 in MO.  He married Sarah Ann Brown (according to R‑1).  According to R‑1, they could not be found in any census records.  However, he was in the 1840 census for Jennings Co., IN, as Orin Graves, living next to his father, with 1 male 20-30, 1 female under 5, and 1 female 15-20.  He was in the 1860 census for New Salem Twp., Pike Co., IL, as Orrin Graves, 47, Elizabeth, 33 (probably a second wife), Diantha, 21, Emily, 12, Mary, 10, William L., 4, Rebecca, 2, and Andrew Allen, 13, and Frank Allen, 6.  He must have moved from IN to IL about1850-1856, since Mary and the older children were born in IN and William and the younger children were born in IL.  Since there is a gap in the ages of the children after Mary (and the first 3 children are the only ones listed by R‑1), perhaps the first 3 were by Sarah and the others were by Elizabeth.  (R‑1)

Caroline (or Carolina) Graves (4) was born about 1818 in IN, and died between 1856 and 1866, probably in Geneva, Jennings Co., IN.  She first married George Wiley on 3 March 1836.  He was born about 1810 in KY, and died 12 Nov. 1838 in Geneva, IN.  She married second William Campbell on 20 Dec. 1838 in Geneva, Jennings Co., IN.  He was born 24 Feb. 1815 in Middle Fork, KY, and died 5 Nov. 1908 in Geneva, IN.

After Carolina died, William married Hannah Catherine Little Banks in 1866 in Geneva, IN.  She was born about 1856 in KY.

The 1850 census for Geneva Twp., Jennings Co., IN, page 304, dwelling 199, lists William Campbell, 33, farmer, b. KY, Caroline, 32, children by 2nd marriage Stephen, 9, Lafayette, 5, Adam, 2, and children by first marriage Orrin Walker, 13, and George M., 11.  The 1870 census for Geneva Twp., Jennings Co., IN, listed William Campbell with his second wife Hannah, children Lafayette, Adam, Martha, and Sarah, by his first wife, and children Viola and Orlando by Hannah.  (R‑1, R‑2)
