DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH GRAVES OF CT, NEW BRUNSWICK & NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Joseph Graves (1) was born by 1748 or before, supposedly in CT, moved to St. John, New Brunswick about 1760, and died in New Brunswick. He may have been born as early as 1725, and may have married about 1745; however, the apparent birthdates of his children don't seem to match those dates. The name of his wife is not known. All of his children were supposedly born in CT, although that does not seem correct, since at least some of them seem to have been born after 1760. This information is from page 141 of Planters and Pioneers by Esther Clark Wright. Similar information on Joseph and some of his descendants is found in a compilation by Jeanette Dexter in the Public Archives of Nova Scotia.

It seems likely that Joseph was related to Lt. William Graves who moved to Nova Scotia about 1760. It is believed that William Graves may be descended from Joseph Graves (b.c. 1699) and Rachel Pratt of Framingham, MA. There is a possibility that Joseph Graves of Framingham was descended from immigrant Rear Admiral Thomas Graves of Charlestown, MA.

The Joseph Graves remembered as the ancestor by family members may actually be the one of Framingham, and a couple of generations may have been forgotten. Note that John Graves (no. 4) in this genealogy is the same as no. 20 in the Joseph Graves of Framingham genealogy.

It should also be noted that Elias Graves (no. 3) in this genealogy is the same as one of the sons (no. 3) of Lt. William Graves discussed above. (R-1)

John Graves (4) was born about 1768 in New Brunswick, and died in 1862 in Port Lorne, Annapolis Twp., Nova Scotia, aged over 90, according to Hill Hall records. He married Elizabeth Banks, daughter of Joshua Banks and Mary Muchmore, about 1775 in Annapolis Twp., Nova Scotia. (This date is not possible if he was born in 1768. Based on the age of his children, could this be 1795?) Elizabeth was born 24 July 1753 in York, York Co., ME, and died in Port Lorne, Annapolis Co., Nova Scotia.

Elizabeth immigrated with her parents in 1760 as part of the pre-Loyalist or "Planter" migration. See p. 45, Planters and Pioneers, which lists the marriage date for Joshua and Mary, and their children. (Place and date of baptism, names of parents, and immigration information from J. Furber Marshall, Box 865, Middleton, NS B0S 1P0.)

John was in Port Lorne (then called Marshall's Cove), Nova Scotia by 1829, as he joined the Baptist Church at that time. In 1838, both he and his son, John Graves, Jr., were living on the Schoolhouse Road in Port Lorne, according to a plan of the Port Lorne area in the Public Archives of Nova Scotia.

Note that this John Graves is the same person as no. 20 in the genealogy for Joseph Graves and Rachel Pratt of Framingham, MA (genealogy 133). (R-1)
