DESCENDANTS OF JOHN GRAVES OF VA AND DAVIDSON CO., TN

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

John Graves (1) may have been born about 1760, based on the birth and marriage dates of his grandchildren.  He married ‑‑‑‑‑‑.

John Graves inventoried the estate of Nathaniel Seat in 1802 in Davidson Co., TN.  Nathaniel’s land is the same tract that he purchased in 1797, probably just on the other side of Pennington Bend on the north side of the Cumberland River in Davidson Co., TN.

In looking for the ancestry of John Graves, one strong possibility is genealogy 270.  In that genealogy, Solomon Graves, born 1723, and wife Sarah Winfield, had children who married Penningtons, and they also had a son John Graves, born 1762, who married Sarah Parham in Sussex Co., VA.  Nothing is known of his descendants, and whether he stayed in Virginia or moved to Tennessee.  (R‑2)

Frances Graves (3) married Graves Pennington on 11 Aug. 1803 in Davidson Co., TN.  He was born about 1783 in VA, and died in 1854 in Davidson Co., TN, at age 71.  It is not presently known whether he is a Graves descendant.  After Frances died, he married second Martha M. Bondurant on 7 June 1820 in Davidson Co., TN, and had 5 more children: Sarah Ann Magdalene Pennington (1821-1880), Mary Amanda Pennington (1823-1867), Martha Pennington (1828-1829), Martha A. Pennington (1829-1857), and Graves Pendleton (1830-1887).  (R‑2)

Children - Pennington

   6.  John W. Pennington, b.c. 1804, m. Elizabeth Dodson, 16 Nov. 1831.

 

Henry Graves (5) may have been born about 1780-1790, based on his marriage date and the dates of birth of his children.  He was born in VA, according to the 1880 census for his son David.  He married Sarah (“Sally”) Allen on 2 Oct. 1809 in Davidson Co., TN.  The discrepancy between the marriage date and the birth of son David cannot presently be explained.  (R‑2)

GENERATION 3

 

CHILDREN OF HENRY GRAVES (5) AND SARAH ALLEN

David M. Graves (7) was born about 1805 in TN[1], and died 25 Aug. 1881.  He married Mary Ann Hudson.  She was born 8 Sept. 1811 in TN.  They were in the 1840 census for Davidson Co., TN.  David was head of household in the 1830 census for Davidson Co., TN, although he was probably not yet married at that time.  Both his parents may have been dead in 1830, since the only person over 30 in the household was a female 70-80.  It is possible that she was his mother, but she could also have been his grandmother.

The 1820 census for Davidson Co., TN had two Graves families, Henry Graves and John Graves.  Either of them could have been David’s father, but the members of Henry’s household make him look more likely.  David and Mary were in the 1850 census for Davidson Co., TN, when he was an inn keeper.  They were in the 1860 census for Butler Co., KY, when he was a farmer, and listed as deaf.  They were in the 1880 census for Morgantown, Butler Co., KY, with their son Lundy living with them, and both David’s parents were listed as born in VA.  All their children were born in TN.

   14.   Mary T. Graves, b.c. 1841.

   15.   John Graves, b.c. 1843.  John was in the 1850 census but not in the 1860 census, but there was a Bossin Graves (b.c. 1843) in 1860 who might be this son.

Harrison, on 14 Dec. 1830 in Sumner Co., TN.  He was born 6 July 1808 in TN, died after 1880, and was buried in Jefferson Cem., Trigg Co., KY.  They were in the 1850 and 1860 censuses for Trigg Co., KY.  He was a farmer.  The 1850 census reported that all their children were born in KY, but the 1860 census showed the first 5 born in TN.  (R‑3)
