DESCENDANTS OF JOSIAH GRAVES AND HANNAH COOLEY

OF MA & OH

 

GENERATION 1

 

Josiah Graves (1) was born 27 March 1773, and died 5 July 1838 in Granville, Licking Co., Ohio.  He married Hannah Cooley, daughter of Clark Cooley and Sabra Bancroft, on 7 (or 27) Feb. 1798 at Granville, Mass.  She was born 3 July 1776 in Granville, Mass., and died 3 Dec. 1857 in Granville, Ohio.  They moved to Granville, Ohio before 1808, but not with the original settlers in 1805.  He served as a captain in the Ohio Militia during the War of 1812.

Among the original settlers of Granville, Ohio were Enoch Graves, Sr., who was born at Granville, Mass. on 13 Sept. 1766, and Roswell Graves, son of Roswell and Lois Graves, baptized at Durham, Conn. on 17 June 1758.  Both Enoch and Roswell were descended from Deacon George Graves, who settled in Hartford, Conn. about 1636.  Roswell Graves served in the Revolution from Granville, Mass., and died in Granville, Ohio at the age of 92.  Mr. Blagg wrote: "I recall from my childhood a cousin of mine speaking of one of Roswell's descendants as a cousin of hers, so I presume that Roswell and Josiah were related. There is no mention of Josiah in Granville, Mass. Vital Records other than the record of his marriage."

Mr. Blagg believed that Josiah may have been a son of Reuben Graves of Granville, MA, and may have been descended from immigrant Deacon George Graves of Hartford, CT (gen. 65).

There was a Reuben Graves, born 1724, died 1778 at Sunderland, MA, married Hannah Fuller, descended from Thomas Graves of Hartford, CT (gen. 168), who could possibly have been the Reuben Graves mentioned in the preceding paragraph, but he is not known to have lived in Granville, MA.  Genealogies 65 and 168 share a common Graves ancestor.  (R‑1)
