Martin Clark Graves (1) was born 17 May 1809 in NY, and died 21 May 1884. He married Mary Ann Douglas on 23 Jan. 1834. She was born 24 March 1816 in PA, and died 18 Feb. 1899. The family was in the 1850 census for Jackson, Jackson Co., MI, with the first 2 children listed as born in PA and the next 4 born in MI. Jasper was not listed; perhaps he had died.

It seems possible that there is a connection between Martin Clark Graves and the Martin Graves born 23 Feb. 1766 in Sunderland, MA, listed as #570 on page 112 in the Thomas Graves of Hartford, CT book. The children of that Martin Graves included Charlotte, Martin and Amos. (R-1)
