Sarah Graves (1) was born in 1786 and died 19 Nov. 1860. She married Michael Stroup. He was born in 1782 and died 29 May 1851.

They were "natives of PA and of English descent", according to a biographical sketch for their son Henry, published in the 1880's, for Kent Co., Michigan. It also said Henry was brought up and educated in Seneca Co., NY, so Sarah and Michael probably moved there from PA. The sketch also stated that his "great-grandmother, Amanda Whitmore, lived to the enormous age of 126 years". (R-1)
