DESCENDANTS OF NANCY GRAVES AND MOSES STARNES

OF GA & MS

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Nancy Graves (1) was born 22 April 1784 in GA, and died 6 Aug. 1854 in MS.  She married Moses Starnes, son of Ebenezer Starnes (b. 1738 in CT) and Elizabeth Callahan (b. VA), on 18 (or 4) April 1800 in GA.  He was born 25 Feb. 1777 in Edgefield Dist., SC, died 16 Oct. 1845 in MS, and was buried in the Mount Hope (Ainsworth) Cem. near Hazlehurst, MS.  It is assumed that Nancy was probably buried next to him, but no headstone has been found to substantiate that.

Moses Starnes was in Mississippi Territory as early as 1799.  After his marriage to Nancy, he settled his family in what became Amite Co., MS in Feb. 1801.  Moses' homestead was listed as part of Wilkinson Co., MS in 1805 (Wilkinson Co. was organized in 1802, and Amite Co. was not established until 1809).  It is not known exactly when Moses moved his family into Marion Co., MS.  However, as early as 1816 he was recorded in that county's court proceedings.  The 1840 census showed Moses and his family living in Copiah Co., MS.  (Copiah Co. was established in 1823 from part of Hinds Co.)  Based on deed transactions, it appears that Moses moved his family to Copiah Co. between Feb. 1832 and Nov. 1835.

George H. Nixon, James McGowen and Moses Starnes were witnesses to the will of John Tomlinson, Sr. on Aug. 13, 1817, Marion Co., MS, in which he left to his three granddaughters, Sarah Adaline, Esther Jane, and Anna Elizabeth, daughters of Jacob and Elenor Tomlinson, a negro girl and slaves; to grandson, William Tomlinson, negroes; to grandson, Jacob Tomlinson, negroes; and, to grandson, William McGowan, negroes.  This was entered on pages 46-51 of the Orphan's Court Records.

The above mentioned William Tomlinson, son of Arthur Tomlinson, was the husband of Moses Starnes' eldest daughter, Elizabeth.  Elenor, the wife of Jacob Tomlinson, was a daughter of John W. Graves and Sarah Warren.  John W. Graves was a son of James Graves and Mary Copeland (genealogy 150).  That Graves family, like Nancy Graves, also moved from GA to MS, and it is possible that Nancy was a granddaughter of James and Mary Graves, which would have made John W. Graves her uncle.  It is believed by some that Nancy was a daughter of Richard Graves and Mary Lawrence in genealogy 150.

All their children were born in MS.  (R‑1, R‑2)
