DESCENDANTS OF GEORGE WILLIAM GRAVES OF GA, MS & TX

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

George William Graves (1) was born about 1814 in GA[1], and died in Wood Co., TX.  He married Luelender Avera (originally recorded as Lewelander ‑‑‑‑‑‑).  She was born about 1821 in GA[2].  Mrs. Norris (R‑1) stated that she was from Wales, but that was probably her parents or earlier ancestors, since 1880 census records for their children state that both parents of George and Lewelander were born in GA.

They and all their children were listed in the 1860 census for Holly Springs, Wood Co., TX (except for Matilda who had married by that time).  According to that census, their first 2 children were born in GA, the next 3 in MS, and the last in TX.  (R‑1, R‑2, R‑3)
