DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM GRAVES AND ELIZABETH ------ OF NY & LENAWEE CO., MI

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

William Graves (1) was born about 1806 in NY.  He married Elizabeth ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She was born about 1807 in NY.  They were in the 1850 census for Tecumseh, Lenawee Co., MI, and in the 1860 census for Franklin, Lenawee Co., MI.  He was a farmer.  His first 6 children were born in NY and the others in MI.

In the 1850 census, Joel Graves, 76, farmer, born in MA, was living with them.  It is likely that Joel was William’s father, and very possible that this is the Joel Graves of genealogy 214, some of whose descendants also lived in Lenawee Co., MI.  It is also suspected that this family may be descended from Thomas Graves of Hartford, CT (genealogy 168), since the name Joel Graves is used in that family, and some of the descendants lived in Lenawee Co., MI.

Charles C. Graves (13) was born 15 May 1868 in Millville, Ingham Co., MI, and died 19 April 1961.[1]  He married Clara Alice Burgett, daughter of Ira Burgett and Cynthia ‑‑‑‑‑‑, about 1898 in southern OR, possibly Grants Pass, OR.  Clara was buried in Grants Pass.

There is no known social security number for Charles.  It is doubtful he had one.  He was self employed most of his life and ran an illegal moonshine still for years, so filing anything with the government was probably the last thing he wanted to do.  (R‑1)
