DESCENDANTS OF JAMES EVERETT GRAVES AND MARY SHUFFLEBARGER OF TN & IL

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

James Everett Graves (1) was born about 1824 in TN[1], and died after 1870.  He married Mary Shufflebarger on 4 Sept. 1847 in Pope Co., IL.  She was born about 1830 in IL, and also died after 1870.  They were in the 1850 and 1870 censuses for Pope Co., IL, and in the 1860 census for Little Black, Randolph Co., AR.  Some of the Shufflebarger relatives were in the census records as Barger and some as S Barger.  James must have died 1871-1880, and perhaps Mary did also, since all their children were either adopted by relatives (the two youngest, adopted by Abram and Elizabeth Shufflebarger) or living with relatives or on their own.  James was a farmer.  All their children were born in IL.

There is almost certainly a close connection between James Graves, Sarah Ann Graves of gen. 451, and Elizabeth Graves of gen. 456.  (R‑1)
