John Graves (9) was born about 1800 or 1803 in VA, and died between 15 Aug. 1860 and 15 Sept. 1870 in Albemarle Co., VA.  He married Martha Haskins on 5 March 1836 in Albemarle Co., VA.  She was born about 1812 or 1815 in VA, and died after June 1880 in Albemarle Co., VA.  They were in the 1850 census for Albemarle Co., VA, page 269, house 1636, and the 1860 census for St. Anne’s Parish, Albemarle Co., VA, page 110, house 838.  In the 1880 census for Charlottesville, Albemarle Co., VA, page 292C, Martha was head of the household, and John had apparently died.  All their children were born in VA.

Living within a couple of houses in 1860 were James Graves, age 62, probable brother of John, Hezekiah Graves, age 65, probable brother of John, and Elizabeth A. Moran, age 20, probable daughter of either James Graves or Hezekiah Graves.  Nancy Graves and Caroline Graves were also living between the Morans and Hezekiah Graves, and were probably sisters of John, since the 1880 census listed Nancy as an aunt of Hezekiah’s son John.  It is interesting to see that both Caroline and Nancy apparently never married, and their approximate date of birth was reported as 1820 and 1823 respectively in 1850, 1825 and 1830 in 1860, and 1814 and 1817 in 1880 (perhaps after they were old enough to no longer see any advantage in saying they were younger than they really were).

The death records for Albemarle Co., VA (as included on U.S. Genweb and submitted by R‑2) show (with the transcribed misspelling of the surname):

Gravis, John, Aug. 12, 1867, Austin’s Gap, Neuraligia, 60, Albemarle

  29.  Jedinia (or Jerdenia or Martha) Graves, b.c. 1842-1843.  Not married in 1880.  The 1880 census listed Jerdenia, b.c. 1848, and M. B. (Martha?), b.c. 1844.
