GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF WILLIAM C. GRAVES (1) AND EMELINE ------

Jane H. Graves (2) was born in Sept. 1852 in ME.  It is not known whether she married.  She was living with her mother in the 1900 census for Franklin, Hancock Co., ME, listed as single, 1 child still living, and Leigh R. Graves, grandson of her mother was living with her, so it is reasonable to assume he was JaneÕs son.  She was living with her mother in the 1870 census for Franklin, Hancock Co., ME.  She has not been found in the 1880 census, but (assuming she married) she might be the Jane Walton in Franklin in 1880.  That Jane Walton couldnÕt be found in 1900.  Jane Graves, single, was still living with her mother in the 1910 census for Franklin, ME, and Leigh R. Graves was married and living in Eden, ME.
