DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT OR PETER GRAVES AND JOHANNA WAUGHOP OF ST. MARY’S CO., MD

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Robert Graves (1) was probably born about 1700-1720, probably about 1715, and died before 14 May 1759 in St. Mary’s Co., MD.  It is possible that his name was Peter rather than Robert.  He married Johanna Waughop, daughter of Thomas Waughop and Katherine Coutanceau.  Katherine was a daughter of Jacob Coutanceau and Katherine Gerard, who were both Huguenots.[1]  Johanna was born about 1717.

The records for his estate show Robert Greves, 67.180 SM, £37.17.6, May 14, 1759-June 7, 1759.  Appraisers: John Reader, Thomas Crane.  Creditors: Joseph Hebb, Barnaby Angell.  Next of kin: Thomas Guyther, Benjamin McKay.  Administratrix/Executrix: Johannah Graves.

It is possible that Robert Graves was related to John Greaves of St. Mary’s Co., MD (gen. 247) and Joshua Graves of St. Mary’s Co., MD (gen. 346).  (R‑1)
