Joseph Graves (17) was born 28 May 1828 in Maltby Le Marsh, Lincolnshire, was baptized the same day, and died after 1881 (since he was listed in that census).  He was a son of Elizabeth Graves (nee Ladlay) who was married to Thomas Graves.  On the baptism (Mumby near Alford) it states Ňson of Elizabeth Graves.Ó  The birth certificate for Joseph Graves states mother Elizabeth Graves, father Thomas Seaman.  It is believed that Thomas Graves was tramping around the parishes trying to find work about the time Elizabeth became pregnant with Joseph.

Joseph married Margaret Hewson, daughter of Thomas Hewson and Mahala North, about 1850 in Maltby Le Marsh.  She was born about 1830 in Alford, Lincolnshire.  On the 1861 census for Alford, Lincolnshire, they were living with children Charles, 10, Ann, 9, Stephen, 7, William, 6, and Betsy, 1.  On the 1881 census he was living in a boarding house in Parsons Lane, Alford, Lincolnshire.  All their children were born in Alford, Lincs, except for William who was born in Hull, Yorkshire.  (R‑1)
