DESCENDANTS OF JOHN GRAVES OF GA, MS & TX

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

John Graves (1) was born about 1792 in Ga. He married Eliza ------. She was born about 1796 in Ga. They moved to Miss., where at least their first three children were born. John appears to have been an early settler, with his son Samuel, of Harrison Co., Texas. He probably died there. John and his family were in the 1850 census for Harrison Co., Texas.

John is believed to have operated a stage coach line at Glade Springs, Texas, near Marshall. Glade Springs was the first settlement in the area.

A land transaction document dated 19 Feb. 1860 in Harrison Co. indicates John Graves died before this date, and that Samuel had a sister living in Alabama named Martha who was married to A. W. Ethridge. (R-1)
