Graves Family Association







GRAVES FAMILIES OF CAMBRIDGESHIRE AND LANCASHIRE, ENGLAND

WHAT IS KNOWN:
As a result of DNA analysis, there appear to be two groups of families that share a common ancestor in England. One group includes John Graves of Frederick Co., VA (genealogy 116), Benjamin, Joe and John Graves of Lancashire (genealogy 374), and Thomas Graves of Cambridgeshire (genealogy 683). The other group includes several families of VA, NC, SC & KY (genealogies 13, 106, and 148).

WHAT IS NEEDED:

  • Get DNA samples from descendants of other Cambridgeshire families to find whether they are related.
  • Research the Cambridgeshire and Lancashire families to try to find their ancestors, descendants, and connections.
  • Research the related group of U.S. families, especially those in the second group, to find their connections.
