DESCENDANTS OF AARON GRAVES AND SARAH ANN HARVEY OF OH AND IA

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Aaron Graves (1) was born 16 Oct. 1822 in OH, and died 26 Feb. 1870 in Hillsboro, Henry Co., IA.  He married Sarah Ann Harvey, daughter of Gideon E. Harvey and Catherine V. Vincent, on 17 March 1844 in Jackson Co., OH.  She was born 14 Nov. 1821 in Frederick Co., VA, and died 23 Dec. 1914 in Hillsboro, Henry Co., IA.  Aaron and Sarah were in the 1850 census for Lick Twp., Jackson Co., OH, living next to her parents.  They were in the 1860 census for Salem Twp., Henry Co., IA.  Sarah was in the 1870 and 1880 censuses for Salem Twp., Henry Co., IA, as a widow.  He was a farmer.  Their first 4 children were born in OH, the next 3 in IN, and the last 3 in Hillsboro, IA.

Their son Robert had a history that said Ezra Graves was his paternal grandfather.  Because of that, it was believed that Aaron’s parents were Ezra Horatio Graves and Phoebe Brockway, descended from John Graves of Concord, MA (genealogy 166).  However, the dates and other information indicate that is not correct.  A search of the 1830 census shows an Ezra Graves in Newburgh, Cuyahoga Co., OH, who might be the right one, but no Ezra Graves was found in OH in 1820 or 1840.  (R‑1)
