Samuel H. (Henry or Horey or Horry) Graves (22) was born 22 Nov. 1837 in Thebes, Alexander Co., IL, and died 30 July 1910 in Villa Ridge, Pulaski Co., IL.  He married Mary Catherine Littlejohn, daughter of Daniel Littlejohn and Cynthia A. Thompson, on 20 Oct. 1864 at Old America, Pulaski Co., IL.  She was born 22 May 1839 in Mason Co., KY and died 25 April 1920 in Villa Ridge, IL.

A biographical article states: "S. H. Graves, county coroner, Mounds, Ill., was born Nov. 22, 1837, in Alexander Co., Ill., son of Edward Graves, a native of Tenn., who died July 6th, 1851, of the Asiatic cholera. He was a farmer by occupation.

The mother of our subject was Elizabeth (Mirron) Graves, a native of Pennsylvania.  She died in Scott Co., Missouri.  She was the mother of four children of whom two, the oldest and youngest, are now living, viz., Samuel H., our subject, and his sister Amanda M. Devouch.

Samuel H. is mainly self-educated.  In early life he followed farming.  He enlisted August 22, 1861, in the Thirty-first Illinois Regiment, Volunteers, Company F, and was promoted to Orderly Sergeant.  He served three years under the stars and stripes, and was then honorably discharged in East Point, Ga., having participated in the battles of Belmont, Mo., Fort Donelson, battle and siege of Vicksburg, and others.  He was wounded at the battle of Fort Donelson by a minnie ball shattering his right hand.  He draws a pension now.

After the war, he returned to Pulaski County and was joined in matrimony, October 20, 1864, at old America, to Miss Mary C. Littlejohn, born May 22, 1839 in Mason County, Ky., daughter of Daniel and Cynthia A. (Thompson) Littlejohn.  Mrs. Graves is the mother of six children now living....

After marriage, Mr. Graves engaged in the lumber business for two years, when he turned his attention to farming.  He has filled school offices, and in the fall of 1882 was elected Coroner of Pulaski County.  He is a member of the A.F.&A.M. Fraternity, Villa Ridge Lodge, No. 562.  In politics he is a Republican."

Samuel and Mary were recorded on the 1880 census in Mound City, Pulaski Co., IL, the 1900 census in America, Pulaski Co., IL, and the 1910 census in Villa Ridge, Pulaski Co., IL; their children were born in IL.  (R‑2)
