DESCENDANTS OF PHILLIP GRAVES OF KY

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Phillip Graves (1) lived in Kentucky.  It is not yet known when and where he was born and died, or who he married.  He was mentioned in the will and administration of his son John Clark Graves.

It is possible that he was the Philip Graves who was born about 1760 in VA, and married Elizabeth Jones.  Not all of that Philip's children have been accounted for.  The one who married Elizabeth Jones is part of genealogy 270.

It was previously thought that Phillip Graves might have been descended from Capt. Thomas Graves of VA (genealogy 169) through Henry White Graves.  Many members of this part of the family migrated from VA to Granville Co., NC, then to Giles Co. and Fayette Co., TN, and finally to Sevier, Howard, Pike and Hempstead counties, AR.  Henry White Graves was descended from Capt. Thomas Graves as follows: Thomas1, John2, Ralph3, Ralph4, Henry White5 Graves.  There were also Wyatts associated with this part of the Graves family (the possible source of the middle name of Phillip’s son John).  However, it seems less likely that this is the ancestry.  (R‑2)
