DESCENDANTS OF ELIJAH GRAVES AND AGNES LACY OF KY

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Elijah Graves (1) was born about 1788 in KY, and died in 1860 in Trimble Co., KY.  He married Agnes Lacy on 21 Sept. 1832 in Owen Co., KY.  She was born in 1815.  It may be that Elijah first married Kitty Hamilton on 25 March 1815 in Fayette Co., KY.

It is believed that Elijah is descended from genealogy 270, probably through Thomas Graves (born 1691) who married Ann Davenport.  They had 16 children, many of whom went to KY.  The name of Elijah was frequently used in this part of the family.  There was also intermarriage between this part of the Graves family and the Bartlett family, including the marriage of Thomas Graves (son of Thomas Graves and Ann Davenport) to Isabella Susan Bartlett.  The relationship to genealogy 270 has been confirmed by DNA testing.  (R‑1)
