DESCENDANTS OF ELIZABETH GRAVES AND THOMAS INGHAM OF GRANVILLE, OH

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Elizabeth Graves (1) was born 28 Feb. 1769, and died 6 July 1850 in Granville, Licking Co., OH.  She married Thomas Ingham.  He was born 15 Sept. 1771 in CT, and died 15 June 1863 in Granville, Licking Co., OH.  They were both buried in Old Burying Ground, Granville, OH.

It has been speculated that Elizabeth may have been a daughter of Reuben Graves (born 1737), son of Lebbeus Graves, descended from Rear Admiral Thomas Graves of Charlestown, MA (genealogy 28).  The line of descent would be Thomas1, Joseph2, Richard3, Lebbeus4, Reuben5.  Reuben and his wife Susanna are both buried in the same Old Colony Burial Ground as Elizabeth and Thomas Ingham.

Also buried in the same cemetery are brothers Enoch Graves (b. 13 Sept. 1766) and Roswell Graves (b.c. 1757), both descended from Deacon George Graves of Hartford, CT (genealogy 65).  (R‑1, R‑2)
