DESCENDANTS OF SPENCER GRAVES OF VA & KY

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Spencer Graves (1) was born in VA, probably about 1785-1790, and probably died before 1850 (and almost certainly by 1852) in McCracken Co., KY.  He was not found in the 1850 census, and the grandson that he had adopted was taken in 1852 by Charles B. Graves and wife Lucinda to raise.  He married ‑‑‑‑‑‑.

It is believed that John R., and Robert Graves are brothers of Charles because they were shown on the 1850 census for McCracken Co., KY, living with Charles and Lucinda.  Robert was shown as age 20 (b.c. 1830) and John as 23 (b.c. 1827).  Spencer Graves is believed to be their father because there is an indenture agreement dated 1847 (soon after his daughter Jane died) between Spencer Graves and James Hobbs.  James was father of John Thomas Hobbs, and husband of Jane Graves.  The document does not explicitly name Spencer as the grandfather, but that seems the most likely explanation.

Another clue is in the Civil War pension application of John Thomas Hobbs.  Because his war records were lost, he had to get affidavits from folks that knew him in KY and during the war.  One affidavit was from Lucinda E. Dent (wife of Charles Barefoot Graves), who stated that John Thomas Hobbs was her nephew and that she raised him since he was 7 years old.

Spencer Graves was not found in the 1800 census.  He was in the 1810 census for Essex Co., VA.  He was in the 1820 census for Drisdale, King and Queen Co., VA, living near Taliaferro Graves and John S. Graves, Sr.  He was in the 1830 census for Essex Co., VA.  He was in the 1840 census for McCracken Co., KY, living near Susannah Graves.  Based on these census records, the following children are likely.  Most, if not all, of the children were born in VA.

The 1850 census for McCracken Co., KY also lists the families of Joseph M. Graves, b.c. 1820, and John L. Graves, b.c. 1823.  These were John Quincy Graves and Joseph Monroe Graves, not closely related to each other, but both part of genealogy 270, so it is possible that Spencer Graves was also descended from gen. 270.  The only person named Spencer Graves in Kentucky in 1850 was Spencer Coleman Graves in Fayette Co., KY, who was also part of gen. 270; however, there is no obvious connection with that Spencer Graves.

In the 1860 census for McCracken Co., KY, Charles and Lucinda Graves had his brothers  Robert (age 40) and John (age 26) living with them, and Robert (age 50) was still living with them in the 1870 census for McCracken Co..  (R‑1, R‑5)

They were in the 1850 and 1860 censuses for McCracken Co., TX.

About 1871 they moved to Texas with their family, in a wagon, having sold their possessions and put the proceeds in silver and gold, which they carried in a small doll trunk.  They settled about four miles northeast of Springtown, Parker Co., TX, on the C. B. Graves Survey, of 132 acres.  Here they chopped the timber and put in a farm of about 50 acres and fenced it with split rails, since it was before the time of barbed wire.  They were members of the Baptist Church at Pleasant Grove (now Opal), in the Tarrapin Neck Community.  About 1890 they moved to Springtown, on a three-acre tract on the east side of town.

They were in the 1900 census for Springtown, Parker Co., TX, when all 5 of their children were still living, and he was a farmer.  The family of their daughter, Catherine, was living nearby.

Both their sons left Texas and went to Oklahoma about 1907, when it became a state, and that is where they both died.  (R‑1, R‑2)
