Rev.25 July 2019, Gen. 270








John Graves, presently shown as the earliest known ancestor in this genealogy, may have been a son of William Graves and Ann, who were named as headrights in 1658 in New Kent Co., Virginia.  The background and evidence for this is discussed in a research study.

It has been shown by DNA testing of descendants in the United States, England, and Australia, that this Graves/Greaves family is from the Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire area of England.  The various parts of this family and their probable connections are shown on the Charts page of the Graves Family Association website.  It is expected that future research and improved DNA testing capabilities will provide a more complete and precise picture of this family.





John Graves (1) was born about 1665 and died after 1737.  His wife's name is not known.  It is believed that he was an immigrant to Virginia from Northamptonshire, England (based on DNA testing, and the Bible record of Solomon Graves in the Appendix), and his surname may have been spelled Greaves in England (since all other proven relatives of his in England spelled their name as Greaves).  It was previously thought that this John was a son of Thomas and Elizabeth Graves (descended from Capt. Thomas Graves of VA, genealogy 169), since the ages were right, and there were no other known Graves of the right age to be the father of this John.  He is obviously too old to be one of the Johns of the Abingdon Parish Register.  Francis (genealogy 220, previously thought to be youngest son of Capt. Thomas Graves of gen. 169) may possibly have had a son John by a first marriage, but this John died in Essex Co. in 1720.  He was also in Essex Co. at the same time that John Sr. (1) was in King and Queen and King William Counties.  Two John Graves are in the 1704 Quit Rent Rolls, one in King and Queen Co. and one in King William Co.  The one in King and Queen Co. might be the John bapt. 1677, Abingdon Parish, but it is also quite possible that both Johns are one and the same person.  As deeds show, John Sr. (1) was of King and Queen Co. in 1704 when he purchased land in King William Co.  Therefore, it is quite possible that he is listed for both areas.  The Quit Rent Rolls are obviously incomplete, as only seven Graves appear on them:  Thomas and John in King William Co., John and Robert in King and Queen Co., Thomas and Jeffery of Gloucester Co., and James of James City Co.  There should be many more.

There are several deeds that are crucial to establishing this line.  They substantiate the birth dates of John Sr. (1) and his son John Jr., and show that this is the same family that later settled in Spotsylvania Co.  King William Co., Deed Book 1, pp. 195-7: John Clayton (or Clayborne) of St. John's Parish, King William Co., sells 100 acres on the north side of the Pamunkey River to John Graves of Stratton Major (Manor) Parish, King and Queen Co., 6 May 1704.

King William Co., Deed Book 1, p. 342: John Graves assigns over all rights, etc., to the above 100 acres on the Pamunkey to his son John, 20 March 1706/7.

Spotsylvania Co. Deed Book A, May 24, 1729.  Thomas Gambrill of St. Margaret's Parish, King William Co.  In consideration of 100 acres of land, a tract of land containing 200 acres in Spotsylvania Co. (one of the witnesses to this deed was Thomas Graves).

This deed does not describe the bounds of the 100 acres which John Jr. traded off in King William Co., but inasmuch as he was described as being of King and Queen and owning 100 acres in King William, it must be the same 100 acres assigned to him as a Deed of Gift by his father John Graves Sr.  There are no other records showing the disposal of the 100 acres or of any other John Graves owning 100 acres in this section.

Spotsylvania Co. Deed Book F, p. 563, May 31, 1765. John and Frances Graves made a Deed of Gift to their son, Joseph Graves, specifically mentioning the 200 acres content and that it was purchased by them in 1729 from Thomas Gambrill.

Journal of the House of Burgess, 1717-1726, p. 56:  William Smith of King William Co. petitions for a bill to make good the title on entailed land he sold to John Graves Jr., 16 Nov. 1713.

It is obvious John Graves Jr. was of age by 1713 and most likely either of age or very close in 1706/7 when given the land on Pamunkey by his father.  Therefore, John Jr. was probably born 1685-90 and was the oldest of John Sr.'s known sons.  By this same reasoning, John Sr. must have been born by 1670 and more likely by 1665.

Although there is no record of John Sr. moving to Spotsylvania Co., Va., it is likely that he moved with his sons.  In Spotsylvania Co. Order Book, 1735-38, p. 501, 7 June 1737, John Graves is set free of any county levies, he being very ancient and unable to labor.  There is no other John in the area to whom this description would apply.  It is also more appropriate for a man born 1665 than the John who was probably baptized 1677.  John Graves Sr. died sometime after 1737.

Thomas Graves, in his will of 1768, specifically mentions Joseph Graves (son of John Graves, Jr. of Spotsylvania Co.) as his nephew and makes him executor of his will.  This proves beyond contention that John Graves, Jr. and Thomas Graves, both of Spotsylvania Co., were brothers and the sons of John Graves Sr. of King and Queen Co.

The evidence for Joseph Graves as a son is discussed in the section on Joseph and his family.

Miss Louise Graves, in her book referenced at the end of this paragraph, has an excellent discussion of the ancestry of this John Graves.  On pages 47-50 of her book, she points out the errors in the lineage of this line in the publications of Mrs. Hiden and John Card Graves.  She quotes Mr. John Frederick Dorman as stating, "The John Graves of King and Queen Co. who deeded 100 acres in King William Co. to his son is the only logical John Graves to be the father of Thomas and John Jr.  The deed of 1706/7 appears to be an adult John Jr., and if that is so we must put his birth as ca. 1685 and the father's birth back before 1665.  This would make the father a contemporary of John Graves of St. Ann's Parish, Essex Co. (will 1719-20) who was of age when he purchased 200 acres there.  Neither of these John Graves is identified in Adventurers of Purse and Person although they fall within the generations covered in that book.  They must be either sons of Thomas Graves, Jr., or Francis Graves, or grandsons of John Graves, the eldest son of old Captain Thomas."

We now know (as a result of DNA testing) that this John Graves was not descended from Capt. Thomas Graves of VA.  That conclusion is also supported by the Bible record of Solomon Graves in the Appendix to this genealogy.  (R‑14, R‑901)

John Graves, Jr. (2) was born about 1685-90, and most likely about 1685, as shown in the deed discussed in the section on his father.  He was probably born in either York Co. or New Kent Co., VA.  He died after 1772.  He married Frances ‑‑‑‑‑‑ about 1715.  The first record of John's arrival in Spotsylvania Co., VA is found in Deed Book A, p. 405: John Graves, Jr. of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen Co., VA purchases 200 acres of land in Spotsylvania Co. for 100 acres of land in King William Co., VA from Thomas Gambrill of St. Margaret's Parish, King William Co., 24 May 1729; wit: Thomas Graves.  This deed is the key to the relationships of the Graves of King William Co. and King and Queen Co. to those who were later in Spotsylvania Co.  It proves that John Jr. of Spotsylvania Co. is the same John Jr. who received the 100 acres from his father in King William Co. in 1706.  It also proves that Thomas Graves (#3) was a brother of John Jr., and therefore also a son of John Graves Sr.  In 1765, John and Frances deeded this very same land to their son Joseph, reserving a lifetime tenancy for themselves (Spotsylvania Co., Deed Book F, p. 563).  This Joseph is named by Thomas Graves as his nephew and an executor of his will, confirming that John Jr. and Thomas were brothers.

John Graves Jr. owned land in several counties, which he gave as gifts to his sons over the years, but he maintained his original Spotsylvania Co. residency as witnessed by the above deed.  Frances died between 1765 and 1772.  John died sometime after 1772 when he made a final gift to his son Joseph.  (R‑14, R‑911, R‑915)

Thomas Graves (3) was born in 1691 (based on a deposition, Caroline O.B. 1746-54, p. 362), and died in 1768 in Spotsylvania Co., VA.  Mrs. Hiden states: "in the absence of documentary proof, we can still feel confident that Thomas Graves was the son of a John Graves who had lived in King and Queen Co. but was of the Gloucester Co. family, born about 1670, son of Thomas and Mary Graves, son of Thomas, son of Capt. Thomas."

Thomas Graves consistently maintained his residence on the Pamunkey in Spotsylvania Co., VA.  His wife Ann (or Anne or Sarah Ann) has generally been thought to be a Davenport, daughter of William Davenport and Anne Woodruff, but Mrs. Hiden thought she was more likely a Clark, or of that family connection.  Mrs. Taylor says she was born before 1696.  She lived until 1782, and during the Revolution she furnished supplies to the Continental troops.

It now appears that the wife of Thomas Graves was definitely Ann Davenport, and that she was a daughter of Davis Davenport of Pamunkey Neck, Virginia.  For further information, see the website on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine (the original website no longer exists, but this is a copy of it as it was in 2012).

It appears that Thomas Graves first married Mary Perkins by 1715, and had by this marriage only three children, two daughters and one son.  His wife then died and he remarried by no later than 1721.  The son was John Graves and one of the daughters was Eleanor Graves, based on Thomas Kimbrough’s will dated 20 Sept. 1777 in Caswell Co., NC[1].  The source for the former statement is a record from the Bible of Solomon Graves, son of Rev. Barzillai Graves (who died 1827).  A copy of the Bible record was made by the NC Archives in 1971.  A detailed discussion of this is in the Appendix of this book.  A discussion of the research for determining the ancestry of Thomas and his brothers is also in the Appendix, but it has now been determined that the conclusions were wrong, since all researchers had made the incorrect assumption that this family was descended from Capt. Thomas Graves (genealogy 169).  The third child by Mary Perkins may have been Louisa Graves, although the proof of her date of birth is not good.

The will of Thomas Graves (Spotsylvania Co. Rec. Will Book D, p. 318) was dated 17 Oct. 1767, probated 6 June 1768, but final settlement was not until July 1802.  Thomas is credited with a total of 16 children.  However, the estate settlement plainly states there were only 15 legatees.  There were probably other children who died before reaching adulthood.  There is some question about some of the following children, and additional proof is needed.  Mrs. Ethel Taylor suggests that there may also have been another child named Sarah.

  25.  Jonathan Graves, married, d. by 1768.  He probably married a Davenport, since a William Davenport was made guardian of his son William.

  26.  Mary Graves, m. ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Campbell (?).  John Bostick signed receipts for her in all disbursements from her father's estate.


Joseph Graves (4) migrated from Orange Co., VA to Rowan Co. or Surry Co., NC prior to 1771, probably 1763-1769.  (Surry Co. was formed from Rowan Co. in 1770.)  He married Sarah ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  He may only have had the one child listed below, since she is the only one mentioned in his will.  His will in Surry Co., NC was dated 12 July 1774 and proved in August Court 1774.  In it he mentioned his wife Sarah, his daughter Mary, and his son-in-law Benjamin Cleveland.  It leaves portions of his estate to his daughter's two sons, Absalom and John Cleveland, and states that Benjamin Cleveland, husband of his daughter, be executor of his estate.

Joseph lived in Orange Co., VA, and later on Roaring Creek, Rowan (later Surry, now Wilkes) Co., NC.  (Wilkes Co. was formed from Surry Co. in 1777.)

Mrs. P. W. Hiden found a 1752 Orange Co. land sale by a Joseph Graves with the consent of his wife Sarah.  Mrs. Hiden thought this was Joseph6, son of John5 and Frances, and nephew of Thomas5 who married Ann Davenport, descended from Capt. Thomas Graves of VA.  That Joseph Graves was born by 1725 in Spotsylvania Co., VA, died 12 May 1785 in Orange Co., VA, m(1) Sarah ‑‑‑‑‑‑, m(2) Frances Coleman.  However, that is not possible, since that Joseph died 1785 in Orange Co., VA, whereas the Joseph Graves of interest died 1774 in Surry Co., NC.  The Joseph Graves who died 1785 was also too young to be the father of Mary, since she was born about 1738.

A discussion of the evidence for Joseph Graves as a son of John Graves is in the Appendix to this genealogy.

[Prior to determining the ancestry of this Joseph Graves, the following speculation was being pursued: It does appear possible, however, that the Joseph Graves of this genealogy was related to the Joseph Graves who married Frances Coleman.  David Graves, son of Thomas Graves and Ann Davenport, was in Surry Co., NC by 1762, before moving to Shelby Co., KY, and it is likely that other members of this family also lived in Surry Co., NC for a few years.  Maybe the John4 Graves who was the father of John and Thomas had another son who had a son, Joseph6 Graves.  Perhaps, also, there were two men named Joseph Graves in Orange Co., VA, one who married Sarah, and the other who married Frances Coleman (with no first marriage to a Sarah).  These possibilities need to be explored.  There was also another John Graves (genealogy 56) who died about 1764-68 in Orange Co., NC, may have had a wife Frances, and could have been the father of Joseph Graves.]  (R‑205, R‑210, R‑211)

Elizabeth ("Betty") Graves (5) was born 14 Feb. 1720 in Spotsylvania Co., VA, and died 6 Jan. 1826 in Green Co., KY.  She married William Sandidge (or Sandridge), son of William Sandidge and Anne Pulliam.  He died testate in Albemarle Co., VA, probated July 1777.  His will was dated 16 Jan. 1776, and mentioned all his children.

A note of interest concerning the Sandridge name is that the original spelling is Sandwich, pronounced Sandage or Sandige.  The letter "r" was added to the spelling of the name during the Revolutionary War period, reason unknown.

In the Green Co., KY Circuit Case number 5593, dated 1826, John Hall and wife, Milly vs. John Sandidge, Elizabeth and William’s children were recorded.  The document stated that Mary, William, Ann, and Susannah were deceased.  According to R‑256, there was another child named Nancy Sandidge, born 1762, however she was not listed in the 1826 case.  (R‑14, R‑138, R‑169, R‑256, R‑304, R‑911)

+35.  Susannah Sandidge, b.c. 1764, m. William Thurman, d. bef. 1826.


Thomas Graves (6) was born by 1724, as his father, John Jr., gave him 200 acres on Muddy Run in 1745 (Orange Co., VA Deed Book 10, p. 24, 1745), and he would have had to have been at least 21 to own land.  Thomas and his wife Elizabeth sold this land on 22 April 1757.  By then it had become part of Culpeper Co., VA (Culpeper Deed Book C, p. 3).  It is possible that Elizabeth was the widow Elizabeth Simms.  In commenting on this, Mrs. Sue Davis said: "Mrs. Hiden thought it possible that Elizabeth was also called Ann and a daughter of Thomas Sims who died testate 1785 in Culpeper Co., Va., naming a daughter Ann Graves.  This seems unlikely, as Thomas and Elizabeth's daughter married Zachariah Sims, son of Thomas Sims, who died 1785.  If Ann were her mother, she would have married her uncle."  However, the fact that one of their grandchildren was named Thomas Sims Graves raises the question of whether he may have been named after his great-grandfather.

Thomas Graves died in 1792 (before 18 June 1792, the date his will was proved), testate, in Culpeper Co., VA.  Elizabeth had died before this date, since she was not named in the will.

According to tradition, Thomas and Elizabeth had 13 or 14 children.  The first 9 children listed below are named in the will of Thomas, and the will gives no implication of other children.  Although Mrs. Hiden credits Thomas with several other children, Mrs. Sue Davis (R‑14) knew of no evidence to support this.

John Graves (13) was born about 1715, and died 18 Jan. 1792 in Caswell Co., NC.  Mrs. Hiden believed that John may have married twice and that his first wife may have been a Herndon.  All authorities agree that John married Isabella (or Isabel) Lea.  John Card Graves states that Isabella was related to the Herndon family of VA.  Mrs. Louis Balthasar states that Isabella was a daughter of James Lea and Ann Herndon (which would provide the Herndon connection and make the idea of a previous marriage less likely), and that she was married to John in 1752 or 1753.  If this marriage date is correct, then there must have been a previous marriage for John Herndon Graves to have been born in 1749.

According to a genealogy compiled by Charles T. Stamps, father of William T. Stamps (R‑179), John's first wife was Catherine Herndon.

John and Isabella moved from James City Co., VA, where most of their children were born, to what is now Caswell Co., NC., and settled on County Line Creek in the vicinity of what is now Yanceyville.  Deeds to John of property there, dated 4 Oct. 1771 and 2 April 1772, are on record.  (R‑910, R‑915)

  105.   James Graves, possibly b.c. 1772, never married, d.c. Jan. 1790 (Caswell Co., NC).  He died without heirs.  It was previously mistakenly believed that this was the James Graves (#528) who was a son of his brother Thomas Graves (#100).  Katherine Kerr Kendall, Caswell County North Carolina Will Books 1777-1814, copyright 1979 by author, 29, will filed in Book B, p. 311, Caswell County, dated April 14, 1781, names sister Ann Yancey, brother Thomas Graves (also named executor); witnessed by Barzillai Graves and John Graves, Sr.; proved by oath of Barzillai Graves and Azariah Graves who made oath that he believed John Graves, Sr. was a ‘concurring evidence to the said will at the time of execution of same.’

+106.   Isabella Graves, m. Thomas L. Slade, 12 Dec. 1782.

Thomas Graves (15) was born by 1721 in St. George Parish, Spotsylvania Co., VA, and died 18 Nov. 1801 in Fayette Co., KY.  He married Isabella (or Isabel or Arabella) Susan Bartlett, sometimes called Susan, by 1751 in VA probably Louisa Co.

The marriage date is indicated by an Orange Co., VA deed dated 24 Oct. 1751, Thomas Graves and wife Isabella of Orange Co. sell to William Warren 150 acres on Negro Run of Northanna River, signed by Thomas Graves Jr. and Isabella (X) Graves.  Thomas had purchased this land in May 1751 from William and Ann Lea of Louisa Co., VA.

Isabella was a daughter of William Bartlett (d. 1775) and Susanna (or Susannah) Davis.  William Bartlett was a son of Thomas Bartlett of Spotsylvania Co., Va.  Isabella was born about 1737 or earlier in Spotsylvania Co., and died April 1818 in Fayette Co., KY.

Thomas Graves lived in Spotsylvania Co., then in Orange Co., VA, where he was Constable in 1754, and later he is found in the records of Louisa Co., VA.  In Louisa in 1777, his name appears on a tax list being charged with 7 tithables (History of Louisa Co., by Harris, p. 169).  About 1784 or 1785 he moved to Fayette Co., Kentucky, where he bought and settled on a 700 acre tract of land (bought from Gen. William Christian of the Revolutionary Army) situated about five miles north of Lexington, Ky.  He was a cooper.  He was a Revolutionary soldier, and also contributed to the cause by furnishing food and supplies to the Continental troops.  He was at the battle of Yorktown, and later stated that he had witnessed the surrender of Cornwallis there (History of Kentucky, by Collins).  At one time his home was headquarters for General Lafayette (History of Fayette Co., Ky., by Perrin).

In a suit filed in Fayette Co., Ky., Oct. 1788, "Henderson vs. Graves", Thomas deposed that "sometime before I moved to Kentucky, my son William purchased for me, from John Henderson of Orange Co., 10 bbls. of corn which was sent to Fredericksburg for salt."  Although Thomas Graves died in 1801, his estate was not settled until 1819, and settlement is recorded in Fayette Co. Will Book E, p. 40.  A brief abstract of his will, made in Fayette Co., is as follows:    I desire my just debts be paid, to my son William Graves 500 acres situate on Licking in the co. of Campbell, the title to me made by Lewis Craig, Sr., also the money he has collected from my father's estate by virtue of a power of attorney from me to him, the said William for that purpose.  To my son Bartlett, a negro man named Charles, also the one half of 700 acres on Green River, part of 1000 acres purchased of Hubbard Taylor.  To my son John, the tract whereon I live at the death of my wife Isabel Graves, also all my lands on the south side of Ky. river except 300 acres to James Randolph and Rosannah his wife, and the one half of 700 acres to Bartlett Graves.  To daughter Rosannah Randolph 300 acres.  To daughter Isabel Hall 150-1/2 acres land situate in Campbell Co. and on the Ohio adjacent Wood and Ware.  To my daughter Ann Hancock a negro named Rachel. To my daughter Sally Graves a negro named Dinah.  To my daughter Mary Beeler a negro named Jane.  To my daughter Liddy Graves a negro named Eve.  To my loving wife Isabel half of land whereon I live with the mansion house and certain personality.  Sons John and Bartlett Graves and friend Bartlett Collins to be executors.  Witnesses: James Martin, William Dickey, Jeremiah Buckley.  (R‑24, R‑910, R‑915, R‑917)

Susanna (or Susannah) Graves (19) was born by 1740 and died by 1802.  She married William Pettus, son of Dabney Pettus and Ann Overton, in 1759.  He was born about 1729, and died 18 Sept. 1795 according to his will filed in Spotsylvania Co., VA (Virginia County Records, 1721-1800, WB F, p. 53), bond dated 18 Sept. 1795.

According to The Pettus Family, compiled and edited by A. Buhmer Rudd, 1957, pp. 22ff, it is more reasonable that William Pettus was the father of William Pettus who married Susanna Graves.  This is based on the connection with the Hart name and family, and other evidence.

William Pettus (who married Susanna) moved to Louisa Co., VA, where his father's brother John lived.  In 1751, William Pettus witnessed a deed (Book A, p. 444) when his uncle bought 214 acres on Elk and Little Rocky creeks.  In 1756, John Pettus sold this 214 acres to William Pettus (Book B, p. 96).  This was in St. Martin's parish.  Valentine calls him "of Trinity" in 1773 (Trinity was made from St. Martin's) and "of Spotsylvania" in 1788 (Valentine, pp. 103, 426).  He was known as Col. William Pettus of Louisa, this because he served in the militia of Louisa Co. before the Revolution and was a militia Colonel after the war.  He was on the Committee of Safety in 17‑‑ in Louisa Co.  He finally settled in Spotsylvania Co., Va., probably because his wife's people were there.

In 1772, Ann Graves, mother of Susanna (Graves) Pettus, gave a negro girl to her granddaughter Barbara Pettus (Crozier, pp. 153, 296).  Col. William Pettus's will, dated 18 Sept. 1795 and proved 4 Dec. 1798, listed children: Barbara, Anne, Susan, Louisa, William, Joseph, James, and Hart.  The last child was called "Hart" in will and deeds, but Hart always signed as Overton Hart and married as Overton Hart.  (R‑44, R‑109, R‑530, R‑910)

Rice Graves (20) was born about 1729 in St. George Parish, Spotsylvania Co., VA, and died in 1814 in Louisa Co., VA.  In Spotsylvania Records, O. Book 1738-49, p. 466, June 7, 1748, he is called "Rice Graves, son of Thos. Graves Sr." and would hardly have been so designated had he then been 21 years of age.

He married Jane Young, daughter of John Young and Christian Bruce, about 1751-2.  (John Card Graves said this was his second marriage.)  Jane died in 1812.

We next find Rice as defendant in a chancery suit brought by Thomas Graves on Feb. 6, 1752 (Spots. Rec., O. Book 1749-55, p. 166).  In 1759, he was appointed to serve under John Robinson, surveyor of roads (Spots. Rec., O. Book 1755-65, p. 140).  In 1760, as Rice Graves of Spotsylvania Co., he bought from William and Mary Macon of New Kent Co. 190 acres "on North Anna River of Pamunkey" (Louisa Rec., Deed Book D, p. 31), and probably moved at once into Louisa Co.  Parenthetically, it might be remarked that all the members of this Graves family had their habitat, so far as can be determined, either on the north side of the Northanna River in Spotsylvania Co., or on the south side in Louisa Co.  Not until John ventured into North Carolina did any of them stray far from this river.  In 1772, Rice added more land to his holdings (Louisa Records, Deed Book D-1/2, p. 375), and in 1777 we find him listed with five tithables (Harris' History of Louisa Co., p. 169).  Rice was a soldier in the Revolutionary War.  He was administrator of his mother's estate, 15 Aug. 1782.  He was on the first U.S. census in 1783 in Essex Co., VA, and his family then consisted of four whites and three blacks.  In 1806 (Louisa Rec., Deed Book K, p. 253), describing himself as old and infirm, he appointed his son John to act as trustee in an equal division of his property among his children.  Louisa Co., Deed Book L, p. 225, July 11, 1809, begins:  “This Deed entered into betwixt John Tate executor of Elizabeth Tate, dec’d. of the first part and William Arnett attorney in fact for Richard Graves of the second part, James Arnett, Thomas Arnett, William Arnett and Susan Arnett who intermarried with John Long of the fourth part, Lawrence Young attorney in fact for Thomas Graves of the fifth part, William Graves of the sixth part Joseph Pettus of the seventh part Benjn Graves of the eighth part, Nancy Graves of the ninth part Catharine Graves of the tenth part and John Graves of the eleventh part”.  It is not known if this is the exact birth order, but the order is consistent with the list of children recorded in Book K.  .In the settlement of the estate as returned by John Graves (Will Book 5, p. 572, July 10, 1815) occur these entries: "Aug. 1812, to pd. Absalom Waller for preaching Mother's funeral", and "Aug. 1814, to pd. Wm. G. Hiter for preaching Father's funeral."

Other sources believe Rice and Jane had two other daughters, Mildred or Amelia, nicknamed Millie, and Judith.  Millie married William Abney in 1785 in Amherst Co., VA, and died about 1810 in Rockcastle Co., KY.  William married second Judith (Graves) Clark, widow of Joseph Clark, on 29 July 1811 in Estill Co., KY.  She died 10 Feb. 1853 in Rockcastle Co., KY.  On the marriage record for ‘Milley’ Graves and William Abney, her mother ‘Gean’ Graves gave consent for the marriage.  However, Rice Graves was still alive and would have been the likely person to give his consent.  Neither of these daughters has been added to this family.

Based on the newly acquired deed information, Mildred/Amelia and Judith are not daughters of Rice Graves.  (R‑21, R‑188, R‑219, R‑910, R‑915)

Pettus a negro man and some furniture; to her sister Catherine Graves a negro man, all of her household and kitchen furniture, stock of horses, cattle and hogs, and her land; and appointed her nephew James O. Pettus executor.  It is likely that her sister Lucy Pettus and family, Thomas Arnett, and her sister Catherine Graves, were then living in Madison Co., AL, instead of KY.

  165.   Catherine ("Kate") Graves, unmarried in 1815.


David Graves (21) was born about 1730 in Louisa Co. (or Spotsylvania Co.), VA, and died in Jan. (or Feb.) 1808 in Shelby Co., KY.  He married Agnes Holloway.  She outlived David.  By the settlement of his estate, they had two sons and four daughters.

Agnes was a daughter of Charles Holloway and his wife Hannah ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  Charles died by Jan. 17, 1803, in KY.  In his will, witnessed by John Graves, he did not name his children.  He mentioned his brother George Holloway in Virginia.  In Spotsylvania Co., VA, William Holloday/Holloway left a will dated 4 May 1746, and mentioned his sons Charles and George, along with other children.  Also in Spotsylvania Co., VA, John Graves, Jr., left a will dated 2 June 1747.  Witnesses to that will were Joseph and Benjamin Hollowday.

David Graves was in Surry Co., NC by 1762, when his son Edmund was born, and moved to Shelby Co., KY as one of the early settlers.  He is said to have served in the Revolutionary War.

In the Louisa Co., VA Loose Papers, there is a bond dated Oct. 22, 1766 from John Day to David Graves.  On Sept. 20, 1779 in Surry Co., NC, David witnessed a deed.  In Fayette Co., KY, a David Graves is listed with 2 tithables, and in the first tax list of Shelby Co., KY, David is listed with 220 acres on Beech Creek.

The Shelby Co., KY Grantor Deeds, 1789-1838, records that David gave a "deed of Gift" to Thomas Martin, his son-in-law, on May 25, 1807, 196 acres on Guist.  Then on Feb. 8, 1808 there is an agreement from Thomas Martin marked "division."

David's will, on record in Shelby Co., was written 9 Jan. 1808, and was produced in court on 8 Feb. 1808.  His children are not listed in the will by name, but his granddaughter, Agnes Conely, is given a "two-year old mare and saddle and a bed and furniture such as his wife Agnes shall give her."

David also states that his wife, Agnes, shall have the possession of his estate during her natural lifetime.  He wills that his daughter, Elizabeth Leatherman, shall receive an equal portion but it is to be lodged in the hands of Richard Graves for her use and under his direction.  His son Richard is to be the executor.

On June 18, 1819 the heirs of David are mentioned in a court order about a certain tract of land in Shelby Co. on Beech Creek containing 248 acres.  (R‑70, R‑148, R‑910)

Nancy Graves (22) was born about 1735, and died by 1809 in Wilkes Co., GA.  (Mrs. Hiden had suggested the possibility that this was Catherine or Katherine Graves.)  She married William Lea, brother of Isabella Lea.  They moved to and lived in Caswell Co., N.C.  William died testate May-July 1794 in Wilkes Co., Ga.

Nancy is not documented as a daughter of Thomas and Ann, but there is circumstantial evidence.  A daughter did marry a William Lea, and this William was a brother of Isabella Lea who married John Graves.  The names used in this family are names used by this Graves line.  (R‑14)

Robert Graves (24) was born before 1755, based on the 1800 census for Chesterfield Co., SC, showing him in the 45 and over age category.  Based on the birth dates of his children, his birth date may have been 1735-1740.  His wife may have been Jean ‑‑‑‑‑‑, since she was cosigner with him on one deed.  Most of the following evidence is from Mrs. Sue Davis (R‑14).

Although most of the evidence is circumstantial, it appears that Robert is the father of at least the following three children.  He is the only Graves in SC land records to be in the right place at the right time. The probability that he is a son of Thomas and Ann (Davenport) Graves also explains the Davenport name for many of his descendants.

Robert Graves was the only Graves in Chesterfield Co. records during at least 1770-80, as evidenced by the deeds listed below.  Chesterfield Co. was created from Craven District.  Both Lewis and Richard Graves owned land on Thompson Creek in Anson Co., N., just across the state line.

S.C. Memorials (land grants):  A memorial exhibited by Robert Graves for a tract of land containing 250 acres in Craven Co. on the north side of Great PeeDee adjoining Lipham, Husband, Wise and Claudius Pegues, certified 7 Nov. 1770, granted 15 March 1771.

A memorial exhibited by Robert Graves for 150 acres on Thompson Creek, waters of PeeDee, bounded by vacant sides.  Surveyed 1 Oct. 1771, granted 28 Nov. 1771.

Charleston, S.C. Deed Records (all S.C. deeds prior to the Revolution were filed in Charleston), Book C, p. 78, Robert Graves to James Blanton.  Lease and release for 250 acres, 1 July 1772, Parish of St. David, County of Craven, land granted 15 March 1771, north side of PeeDee, bound by Lipham, Husband, etc.

                                                        signed  Robert Graves

                                                                    Jean (x) Graves

Family papers or oral tradition in the Sholars family say Lewis Graves had brothers Richard and John.  Records seem to bear this out.  Richard Graves gave testimony to Lewis' service in pension application.  He witnessed an Anson Co., NC deed of Lewis Graves.  He signed a receipt for Lewis on SC Stub Indent.  John Graves also witnessed an Anson Co. deed.  John lived in the same district in Hancock Co., GA and in Jasper Co., GA as Lewis.  He was also a codefendant in a law suit with Lewis in Hancock Co.  (R‑14)

Most of the information on Robert Graves and all his known descendants was previously published in Robert Graves of Anson Co., N.C. and Chesterfield Co., S.C., by Kenneth Vance Graves, 1980.  (R‑916)

Mary Graves (27) was born about 1738, and died in 1800 at Fort Madison, Pickens Co., SC.  She married Benjamin Cleveland about 1758-60. He was born 26 May 1738 in Blue Run, Orange Co., VA, and died 15 Oct. 1806 in Fort Madison, Pickens Co., SC.  They were buried on the Cleveland Plantation, Fort Madison.

Col. Benjamin Cleveland moved from VA to Yadkin, Rowan Co., NC about 1763 (Rowan became Surry Co. in 1770 and Wilkes Co. in 1777), and lived there until after the Revolution.  Benjamin lost his home in Wilkes Co., NC through a faulty title, and then moved to Pendleton District, SC, on the Tugaloo River, where he was a judge, as he had been in NC.

Col. Benjamin Cleveland was "the famous Colonel of Indian Wars in NC and of the Revolution at the Battle of King's Mountain, and the terror of Tories whom he hanged without ceremony."  Cleveland Co., NC and the town of Cleveland, TN are named for him.

It has been incorrectly believed by some that Benjamin Cleveland had Graves ancestry, descended from Jane Graves, a great-granddaughter of Capt. Thomas Graves of VA through Thomas's son Francis[5].  It was believed that Jane Graves and John Coffey had a daughter, Martha Elizabeth Coffey, who married John Cleveland.  However, that is not correct.  Elizabeth Coffey, daughter of Edward Coffey and sister of John Coffey, is the one who married John Cleveland.  This couple lived most of their lives at Blue Run, Orange Co., VA, and had several famous sons, most notably Col. Benjamin Cleveland of Revolutionary War fame.  This ancestry is discussed by George A. Martin in "Virginia Cleveland Ancestor Discovered", Nat. Gen. Soc. Quarterly, vol. 46, no. 3, Sept. 1958, p. 152.

One account says: Col. Ben's only daughter married General Wyly of Iredell Co., NC, and their son, General James Rutherford Wyly, was a distinguished officer of the War of 1812.  He married Sarah Hawkins Clark, granddaughter of Gov. John Sevier of TN, who was a General at King's Mountain.  It is possible that Col. Ben’s daughter, Jemima, was adopted; that would explain why she was left out of his will.

According to R‑501, Jemima was the illegitimate daughter of Col. Cleveland by Mary Elizabeth Meyers.  ‘Jemima had two children out of wedlock with James Wyly’ in 1782 and 1784.  After the Revolutionary War, Wyly married another woman.  Jemima had four children by Evangelist (Evan) Edwards; although they did not marry, they lived together the required seven years for a common-law marriage.  After the death of Edwards in 1794, Jemima’s father instructed William Martin to come to Oconee, Tugaloo Co., SC where he gave her a plantation house, cattle, etc. and slaves.  She married Daniel Cleveland, son of David Cleveland.  He was the overseer for her father.  He was born about 1776 in VA, and died after 1860.  He was recorded on the 1850 and 1860 censuses in East Feliciana Parish, LA.

At least the two sons were born in Albemarle Co., VA.  (R‑20, R‑204, R‑205, R‑208, R‑209, R‑501)

Thomas Graves (36) was born Sept. 1747 in Culpeper Co., VA, and died 12 March 1834 in Lincoln Co., MO.  He married Martha Ryan, and possibly Mary Mason.  [His son Thomas married Mary Mason on 20 Nov. 1795, so this appears to be incorrect.]  He moved to Bourbon Co., KY, and was in Warren Co., MO in 1820.  He was judge of the county court for Warren and Montgomery Co’s., MO.  According to Mrs. P. W. Hiden, Martha Ryan may have been Thomas' second wife.  She was first married to William Sims, who died in 1769.  (R‑12, R‑310, R‑911)

  255.   Waller Graves, b.c. 1782, m. Mary ("Polly") Rucker, d. 1833 (in prison).  She was dau. of John Rucker (b. Caroline Co., VA, d. 1794, Orange Co., VA) and Mary Burton (d. 1823).  This is probably the Waller Graves who was insane when he killed William Kent (husband of Mary Ann Zumwalt) at Newton Howell's home on Oct. 2, 1830 in Montgomery, MO.  Other sources identify the victim as ‘the father-in-law of Henry B. Graves, his nephew’.


Lewis Graves (37) was born about 1750 in Culpeper Co., VA, and died 11 May 1810 in Laurens, Laurens Co., SC[6].  Various deeds place his parents in Culpeper from the 1740’s on.  He first married Ann Sims, daughter of Thomas Sims, before 1782 in Culpeper Co., VA.  He married second Rebecca (Starnes) Sims, daughter of Ebenezer Starnes and Anna Fields, after 10 Sept. 1805, when the will of her first husband, William Sims, was proved.  She was born about 1760 in SC, and died after 1850, probably in TN.  She apparently remarried after Lewis’ death to an unknown McWhorley, whom she outlived.  She was recorded with Martin Graves on the 1850 census in Hardin Co., KY as Rebecca McWhorley.  She would have been both mother-in-law and stepmother to Martin Graves.

Lewis is listed in the 1790 U.S. census of Laurens Co., SC as Lewis Greaves.  He is found with this spelling elsewhere as well.  In reading the will of his father, Thomas Graves of Culpeper Co., VA, one might interpret some of the wording in the codicil to mean a family tift had developed between father and son.  Perhaps this was the reason for his adoption of an alternative spelling.  Lewis is listed in this census as having one free white male over 16 (himself), 3 free white males under 16, 5 free white females, and 3 slaves.  Based on this data, we can conclude he probably had 3 young sons, a wife, and 4 daughters.

On the same page of the census are found Elizabeth Simms, probably his sister who was widowed in 1789 and yet to marry Dr. John Creecy.  She is listed with 1 male over 16, 4 males 16 and under, 5 females (including herself), and 4 slaves.  Also on the same page is Aaron Stern (Starnes), the father of Rebecca Starnes, wife of his son Lewis.

The 1800 census for Laurens Co., SC listed Lewis Graves with 1 male 0-10, 2 males 10-16, 1 male 26-45, 1 male over 45 (Lewis), 1 female 0-10, 2 females 16-26, 1 female 26-45, 6 slaves.

Even though Lewis Graves was a justice of the peace and probated many wills, he apparently died intestate.  There is an estate sale in the records of Laurens Co., SC.  His heirs are listed as George C. Madden, Fanny Graves, John Addams, and Lewis Graves.  Administrators are William and Martin Graves.  Purchasers were Rebecca and Fanny Graves.  This estate sale occurred on 31 May 1810 (bundle 29, package 7, Laurens Co., SC).  The doctor bill was paid to Dr. John Creecy.  John Wait was appointed to appraise the estate.  Another source has slightly different data.  No date is given, but the administrators are the same William and Martin Graves.  Heirs are not listed as such, but the following purchasers are named: Rebecah Graves, Wm. Graves, Lewis Graves, Fanney Graves, Martin Graves, Moses Madden, George Madden, Jacob Niswanger, John Adams, John Williard (?), Richard Golden, John Newman, William Crocker, John Creecy, John Boyce, Martin Shaw, James Sims, Martin Sims, George Morgan, John Wait, Joseph Bolton, William McFerson, Isaac Mosely, Larkin Gaines, Samuel Anderson, Thomas Brock, and Ebeneezer Harris.  (Notice some of the spellings differ, but they were copied exactly as written.)

From another source, purchasers at the estate sale were: James Sims, John Sims, Joel Sims, John Wait, Phillip Wait, Dr. John Creecy.

Lewis had a sister Elizabeth (will of Thomas Graves, 1792; will of Dr. John Creecy; 1790 Laurens Co., SC census).  Lewis also had a sister Frances Wait (will of Thomas Graves, 1792; will of Dr. John Creecy).  Lewis was listed in the Culpeper Co. personal property tax roll for 1782 and 1783; 1 slave, Winnie.  He was in SC in 1792, according to the will of Thomas Graves.

Pension application of John Wait, no. 7812, filed 1834, from Laurens Co., S.C., states he served from Culpeper Co., VA.  Elizabeth Creecy gave testimony that she had known Wait for 62 years.  (Elizabeth was widow of Dr. Creecy and widow of Zachariah Sims; see will of Creecy.)  Witnessed by William Graves (son of Lewis Graves who died 1810).

The first 2 children listed below were probably born in VA, the third one definitely was, and the others were born in Laurens Co., SC.  (R‑196, R‑202, R‑585, R‑920)

Elizabeth Graves (38) was born about 1752 in Culpeper Co., VA, and died between July 1829 and 4 Nov. 1831 in Laurens Co., SC.  She first married Zachariah Simms (or Sims), son of Thomas Simms and Rebecca Petty, in Culpeper Co., VA.  He was born about 1748 in Culpeper Co., and died about 24 Aug. 1790 or before in Laurens Co., SC.  After the death of Zachariah, Elizabeth married second Dr. John Creecy in Laurens Co., SC.  He died before 15 Jan. 1812 in Laurens Co.

Zachariah Sims, husband of Elizabeth Graves, appears in Culpeper Co., VA records.

From Abstracts of Early Records of Laurens Co., SC, 1785-1820, in Deed Book H: 2/4/1804-4/17/1806, Jesse Pugh and wife Lydia to John Creecy for 75 acres on Black Cr. of Reedy R. bordering on Ezekiel Andrews, John Wait & John Sims, Geo. Wharton. D. Anderson, JQ.  D.R. (Dower Rights) of Lyda Pugh.  In Deed Book J: 6/9/1810-2/5/1812, John Creecy and wife Elizabeth (former widow of Zachariah Sims) marriage settlement to equalize division of slaves among legatees: John Sims, Thomas Sims, Jesse Pugh and wife Lyda, James Wait and Sarah, James Sims.  Wit.: D. Anderson, John Wait, William Fulton, J.P.

There is a question as to whom the children of Elizabeth Graves were.  The will of John Creecy lists as children of Elizabeth’s first marriage James, Joel, Zachariah S., and Fanny.  The marriage settlement of John Creecy and Elizabeth lists as legatees John Sims, Thomas Sims, James Sims, Lydia (Pugh), and James Wait.  Since James Wait was probably a nephew (son of Elizabeth’s sister Frances), how can we be sure that John, Thomas and Lydia were also children?  Perhaps John and Thomas were children of Joel or Zachariah, since neither of them were listed in the settlement, or perhaps the people not mentioned in the settlement had already been provided for separately.  (R‑140, R‑233, R‑247, R‑574)

Anne (“Nancy”) Graves (39) was born about 1755 in Culpeper Co., VA, and died in Laurens Co., SC.  She first married Richard Wait(s) about 1774.  He was born about 1750 in VA, and died about 1785 in Culpeper Co., VA.  She married second ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Jones about 1785 in Culpeper Co., VA.  He was born in Culpeper Co., VA, and died in Laurens Co., SC.  (R‑45)

William Graves (40) was born about 1755 in Culpeper Co., VA, and died in 1833 at the old home place in Mackville, Washington Co., KY.  It is possible that his full name was William Thomas Graves, but there is no proof of that.  He married Sarah Fisher of Culpeper Co., VA, possibly on 22 Dec. 1790 (although there is some belief that that is the marriage date to a second wife).

It was previously believed that the son Thomas was Thomas Sims Graves, born 13 July 1794 in Culpeper Co., VA, died 6 May 1859 in Nelson Co., KY, who first married Harriet R. Gist and married second Mary E. Graves.  Through DNA analysis, it has been conclusively proven that Thomas Sims Graves was not a descendant of Capt. Thomas Graves (genealogy 169) nor of genealogy 270.  Uriah Noah Graves was also confirmed by DNA testing to be a brother of Thomas Sims Graves, and both have been put in genealogy 94.  Both these men were sons of a William Graves.  The birth date of William Graves has been given as about 1755 by some researchers and about 1776 by others, and he has been listed with different wives and different children.  The most likely answer to this confusion is that there are two different men named William Graves.  We need to separate the two families and perform DNA testing on any lines that are still questionable.  It is likely that some of the other children listed below also belong in genealogy 94.  (R‑190, R‑276, R‑553, R‑911, R‑912)

Children - Graves

  276.   Ony Graves, b. 1770 (or 1786), m. Adam Pierce, 6 Dec. 1798.  Her name has also been given as Amy.  Some researchers have incorrectly given her parents as William Graves and Nancy Buckler, descended from John Graves and Sarah Noble of MD & KY (genealogy 96).  That William Graves was b.c. 1780-1790, so he couldn’t possibly have been Ony’s father.

Philip Graves (41) was born about 1760.  He married Elizabeth Jones on 25 Sept. 1785 in Culpeper Co., VA.  He was on the 1788 tax list for Culpeper Co.  He left Culpeper Co. in 1804 and appeared in Madison Co., VA in 1810.  After 1820 he left Madison Co.  They supposedly had at least 10 children. The following children were all born in Madison Co., VA.  (R‑911)

James F. Graves (43) was born about 1765, and died in Dec. 1811.  He was described as being 16-21 in 1783 in Culpeper Co., Va.  He was out of the county in 1784-85 and there in 1786.  He first married Elizabeth Pratt of Culpeper Co., daughter of Thomas Pratt and Maryann ‑‑‑‑‑‑, about 1782.  He married second Elizabeth Parnell on 8 Sept. 1809.  In 1810 he moved to New Madrid, MO, where he died in Dec. 1811.

There is some question regarding the following children, since one source lists the first three, then lists Mary E. Graves who married her first cousin Thomas S. Graves, and then does not show any of the other children.  (R‑179, R‑911, R‑912)

Joseph Graves (44) was born about 1767.  He married Nellie Branham on 1 Jan. 1800 in Culpeper Co., VA[9].

It was previously believed (incorrectly) that this was a George Graves, and that he might be descended from Johann Sebastian Graff, an immigrant from the German Palatinate, who lived in PA, NC and TN.

There is no proof that Horace Graves was a son of this Joseph Graves.  However, the 1850 census for Gallatin Co., KY showed him living very close to Lorenzo D. Graves, and the 1820 and 1830 Boone Co., KY censuses for Joseph Graves showed 3 sons of the right ages to be those listed below.  (R‑197)

Colonel John Graves (52) was born 4 Sept. 1745 in Abingdon Parish, Gloucester Co., Va., and died 24 June 1824.  He served as Ensign and Lieutenant in the company commanded by Maj. George Slaughter in the 8th Va. Regt. commanded by Col. Abraham Bowman in the Revolutionary War.  The company was designated at various times as "Capt. George Slaughter's Co." and as "Lieut. John Graves' Co."  He was commissioned 26 Jan. 1776 and resigned 22 April 1778 (Record and Pension Office, War Dept.).  He was in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth and Yorktown.  He was a trusted officer of Gen. Nathaniel Greene in N.C. and was detailed by him to oppose the passage of part of Cornwallis' force across the Yadkin, which he did with conspicuous and distinguished gallantry.

After the war, probably in 1781, he moved to Wilkes Co., Ga., and in 1786 was Colonel commanding a Georgia regiment against the Creek Indians.  Another source stated that he moved to Ga. in 1823, and that his nephew, William Francis Strother, went with him.  William was a son of Anne Fargeson, sister of John Graves' first wife.

John Graves first married Lucy Farquson (or Fargeson), daughter of Samuel Fargeson of Culpeper Co., Va., on 10 May 1772.  He married second Catherine West in 1795. She was born 1763 in Holland, and died in 1841.  (R‑160, R‑915)

Maj. Benjamin Franklin Graves (56) was born 9 April 1773 (or in 1771) in Spotsylvania Co., VA and died 22 (or 23) Jan. 1813.  He was killed at the battle of River Raisin in Michigan when Gen. Winchester was defeated Jan. 22, 1813, and when his brother, Col. Thomas Coleman Graves was also killed.  He first married Mary Boxley.  She died in 1803 in Spotsylvania Co.  In the year of her death he and Mary sold a house lot, which she had inherited from her father, to her brother George Boxley.  They had no children.

He married second Polly Dudley, daughter of Rev. and Capt. Ambrose Dudley and Ann Parker.  Polly was born 6 Sept. 1783 in Fayette Co., KY, and died 15 Aug. 1868 in St. Louis, MO where she had resided for 40 years.  In 1858, she applied for an extension of the pension she had been receiving based on Benjamin’s War of 1812 service.  This was signed on 30 Nov. 1858 in Pike Co., KY.

Ann Parker was a daughter of William Parker and Susanna Winslow of Spotsylvania Co., Va., where the Dudleys were also seated.  Ambrose Dudley was a son of Robert Dudley and Joyce Gale/Gayle, and was an officer in the Revolution.

In 1805 Benjamin and Polly Graves sold to his brother Joseph Graves 80 acres in Spotsylvania Co. bequeathed to Coleman Graves by their father.  The will of Benjamin Graves mentions his wife Polly Graves, his mother, and brother Thomas C. Graves.  His mother, brothers John C. Graves and George Graves, and brother-in-law James Dudley, were executors of his will.

Benjamin was a member of the Kentucky Legislature from Fayette Co. from 1801 to 1806.  He engaged in agricultural pursuits and was an amiable, shrewd, and vigorous man.  He was among the first to volunteer after war was declared against the British in 1812.  He was made Major of the 5th Ky. Regt. commanded by Col. Lewis, and proved to be a vigilant and gallant officer.  He and his brother Coleman Graves were killed in Jan. 1813 at the Battle of River Raisin.  Graves Co., KY was named for him in 1823.  According to the family Bible, six children were born to Benjamin and Polly, all in Fayette Co., Ky.

Even though it is said that Benjamin and his first wife Mary had no children, and that Benjamin and Polly only had 6 children, James Dudley Graves is listed as a child.  The rationale for this is that descendants believe this is the proper placement, it seems reasonable based on name, date and place of birth, and there is no better place to put him.  It is also possible that he could be the same as Ambrose Dudley Graves, or that Benjamin and Polly actually had 7 children but only 6 lived.  (R‑7, R‑115, R‑507, R‑911, R‑915)

Ann ("Nancy") Graves (116) was born 22 July 1756 in Spotsylvania Co., VA, and died 6 March 1846 in Butler Co., OH.  She married John Hancock, son of Benjamin Hancock and Mary (“Polly”) Beadles of Hanover Co., VA, on 7 May 1774 in Louisa Co., VA[21].  He was born 4 March 1753 in Hanover Co., VA, and died before 27 Oct. 1827 in Butler Co., OH, when an appraisal of his estate was recorded.

The family lived in Louisa Co., VA during the Revolutionary War, where John served and was appointed Captain in the Militia on April 13, 1779.  For this service, he received a land warrant for bounty land.  The family moved to Kentucky about 1788, where they settled in Woodford Co. for a short time, then moved to Franklin Co.  Sometime between 1805 and 1812, they moved to Butler Co., OH, where it is said John Hancock built the first cabin on what is now the town square of Oxford.  This location was at the crossing of two Indian trails and because of the scarcity of water, he abandoned it and moved closer to what is now Hamilton, OH.  He died there in Hanover Twp. before Oct. 27, 1827, when an appraisal of his estate was recorded.

Nancy died in Reily Twp., Butler Co., OH, and both were buried on a part of their property which they set aside as a burial ground.  A few years ago, a committee was appointed in Butler Co. to locate the graves of the early pioneers who died there before 1860.  The graves of John and Nancy Hancock were located and their remains were moved to Oxford Cem. at Oxford, OH (Butler Co. Graveyard Records by Jane Knox Skinner).  (R‑13, R‑16, R‑122)

Sarah ("Sally") Graves (142) was born sometime after May in 1775 in Pittsylvania Co., VA (in what later became Henry Co.), died 4 Jan. 1866, most likely at her son Joseph's home in Savannah, Hardin Co., TN, and was buried in Savannah Cem.  She married Thomas East on 12 Aug. 1790.  He was born in 1765 in VA, probably Halifax Co., since his father owned land there from 1764 to 1777 (in what later became Henry Co.), and died 4 Oct. 1844 in Waynesboro, TN, probably at the home of his son Joseph, who had moved there soon before 1840 from the Lynnville area.

Thomas and Sarah moved to Giles Co., TN in 1823 or 1824, and settled at old Lynnville (the present site of Lynnville is about five miles from the site of the 1830's), along with many of their children.  Thomas bought 80 acres in Giles Co. in 1826, and he and Sarah lived there in the 1830's near their son Barzley.  Many of their children were members of the Roberson Fork Church of Christ at Linnville, so there is good reason to assume that Thomas and Sarah were members also.

By May of 1849 (after Thomas had died) Sarah was living in McNairy Co. with or near her son Barzley.  On that date she gave him power of attorney to collect a debt owed her from someone in Hardin Co., and gave her place of residence as McNairy Co.  She could not write. In the early 1800's it was not uncommon for the women to be illiterate, since there were few public schools and there was little need for the women to work outside the home.

In the early 1850's Sarah moved to Savannah, TN, in nearby Hardin Co., where she died.  Their children were born in Henry Co., VA.  (R‑85)

Col. John Graves (143) was born 18 Dec. 1757 in Louisa Co., VA, and died 31 (or 10[25]) Oct. 1843 in Fayette Co., KY.  He married Lydia Graves (#122), daughter of Thomas Graves and Isabella Bartlett (his uncle and aunt), on 23 Dec. 1784 in Louisa Co., VA.  She was born 2 Oct. 1769 in VA, and died 7 Sept. 1856.  She was recorded on the 1850 census in the household of her son Jefferson in Scott Co., KY.

The consent of her father to the marriage is filed with the marriage bonds of the county.  The pension record of John Graves (Bounty Land Warrant 26 574-160-55) shows that he was born in Louisa Co. Dec. 18, 1757, that he resided for a while in Spotsylvania Co. and later in Orange Co., VA, enlisting in Spotsylvania Co. in 1776.  After his death, on April 8, 1844, his son John applied for his pension to be continued to Lydia, the widow.  Lydia made oath that she was 74 years old on Oct. 2, 1843, and had married John Graves on Dec. 23, 1784, thus proving that she was the daughter of Thomas Graves and Isabella Bartlett.

John stated that he went to KY Dec. 5 or 6, 1786, that his brother, now living 8 miles this side of Cincinnati on the turnpike road, went out the year before and “purchased the place of John and Elijah Craig for my Father; Father, Mother and myself came out with 30 blacks.  My brother who had remained came by water.”[26]

The Bible record of John and Lydia’s children was included in the pension papers, and provided the data for all of the children listed below.  (R‑910)

His father gave him land in Spotsylvania Co., VA in 1788 (Crozier 1, p. 451) and calls him "of Spotsylvania" in 1792, but he seems to have owned land in Louisa Co., Va. in 1811 (Valentine, p. 1143).  As executor of his father's will, he sold 376 acres in Spotsylvania Co. in 1799 (Crozier 1, p. 509).  In 1808, he followed the Arnolds to Ky.  The names of the following children and their dates are from a Bible record.  (R‑109)

Susannah Pettus (150) may have been born about 1758 in Louisa Co., VA.  However, since her parents were supposedly born about 1759, that birth date may not be correct.  She died in Abbeville District, SC.  She married John Davenport about 1778 (or 1789) in Louisa Co., VA.  He was born about 1748 in Spotsylvania Co., VA.  (R‑477)

Joseph Pettus (151) was born 6 June 1773 in VA, and died 2 Jan. 1853.  He married his first cousin, Lucy Graves (#163), daughter of Rice Graves and Jane Young, on 9 Feb. 1784 in Spotsylvania Co., VA.  (These dates don't look correct, since Joseph would have only been 11 years of age in 1784.  The Pettus Family says Lucy was a daughter of Richard Graves (#18), and married in 1796.  Either the 1784 marriage date is wrong or the parentage is wrong.  Although Richard Graves is not known to have had a daughter named Lucy, it is a possibility.)  They moved to Crab Orchard, Lincoln Co., KY in 1804.  Joseph, Lucy, and Nancy were recorded on the 1850 census in Lincoln Co., KY.  (R‑109)

Capt. John Graves (155) may have been born in 1766, and died in 1843 in Louisa Co., VA.  He left a will there.  He married Mary Ragland, daughter of William Ragland and Agnes ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 24 Aug. 1795 in Louisa Co., VA.  He lived in Ellisville, Louisa Co., VA.  He served in the militia in the Rev. War, and received a pension of $40 per month.

John was the only son of Rice and Jane Graves to remain in Louisa Co.  In his will (Louisa Rec. W.B. 11, p. 33) he leaves to his daughter Elizabeth, wife of John Poindexter, of Christian Co., KY, and land gifts to his grandson John Poindexter, Jr. and grandson Richard M. Graves, son of John R., also to Richard a prize "given to me by the Fredericksburg Agricultural Society with a stallion engraved on it, together with my money scales". (In 1936 this prize given to John Graves was in the possession of a descendant, Mr. John Payton McGuire, 1510 Grove Ave., Richmond, VA.)  (R‑910, R‑930)

Thomas Graves (156) was born Oct. 1763 in Louisa Co., VA, died in May 1847 at the home of F. V. Winfrey in Cumberland Co., KY, and was buried in the family cemetery, Cumberland River, KY below Well’s Island, KY.  F. V. Winfrey is probably Francis H. Winfrey, the husband of his daughter Catherine.  He moved to KY, probably Fayette Co., in 1783.  He first married Mary Chilton, daughter of Thomas Chilton and Ann Bayne Owsley, on 25 Aug. 1785 in Lincoln Co., KY.  She was born about 1765 in Loudon Co., VA, and died about 1842 in Cumberland Co., KY.  Mary Chilton was a half sister of Lydia Ann Williams, who married Thomas’s brother William Graves.

He married second Marley Pleasant (Bowman) Walthall, daughter of Pleasant Bowman and widow of William A. Walthall, on 19 Oct. 1842 in Cumberland Co., KY.  She was born about 1804 in VA, and died after 1860.  There were no children by Thomas's second marriage.  Thomas Graves enlisted in the Revolutionary War in 1780 under Capt. Phillips and Capt. Yancy and served to the end of the war.  See his pension record.

In the following list of children there are two Elizabeths.  It seems unlikely that this is correct.  It is more likely that one of them is not a child of Thomas Graves, or was not named Elizabeth.  (R‑262, R‑910)

Benjamin Taylor Graves (157) was born about 1765 in Louisa Co., VA, and died about 1846 in Midway, Woodford Co., KY.  He married Sallie Cole of Virginia, daughter of Richard Cole and Ann Hubbard.  She was born about 1765 in VA, and died in 183- in Midway, KY.

Richard Cole (b. 1729, d. 1814) was from Culpeper Co., VA, and was a son of John and Susanna Cole.  In 1782, Richard Cole moved to Woodford Co. and eventually settled at what is now Midway, KY.  Located on the old Frankfort and Lexington Road, he was the proprietor of the Black Horse Tavern.  The tavern was continued by his son, Richard, Jr., and was a stopping place for historical figures of the day such as Henry Clay.  Richard Cole, Jr. was a greatgrandfather of Frank and Jesse James.

Probably all the children of Benjamin and Sallie were born in Woodford Co., KY, or in that part of Fayette Co. which became Woodford in 1788.  (R‑105)

Elizabeth Graves (158) died 18 May 1807.  According to the Louisa Co., VA marriage records, Elizabeth Tate married Enos Tate on 13 July 1772 in Louisa Co., VA[29], and Elizabeth Graves married Uriah Tate on 12 Oct. 1772 in Louisa Co., VA[30].  They may be the same person, but no definitive proof has been presented.  Uriah Tate was born about 1746 in VA, and died about 1803 in Louisa Co., VA.  According to Louisa Co., VA Deed Book L, pp. 225-227, dated 10 July 1809, John Tate was the executor for Elizabeth Tate.  (R‑188, R‑551)

William Graves (162) was born 29 (or 30) Jan. 1768 in Louisa Co., VA, and died 13 Dec. 1852[31] at Preacherville, Garrard Co., KY, near Crab Orchard, KY.  He married Lydia Ann Williams on 30 April 1793 (or 2 May 1793) in Louisa Co., VA[32].  Her father was the bondsman.  She was a daughter of John Williams of Lincoln Co., KY and Ann Bayne Owsley (the widow of George Chilton).  Lydia was a half sister of Mary Chilton, who married Thomas Graves, brother of William Graves.  Lydia died 17 June 1815 at Preacherville, KY, and was buried in the Old Drakes Camp Creek Churchyard Cem. there (tombstone listing published by Mrs. M. H. Dunn, Stanford, KY).  William was buried there in 1852 beside her.

William Graves wrote a will dated 31 Sept. 1827, dividing his property among five children.  The will follows:

State of Kentucky, Garrard County

I, William B. Mason, clerk of the Garrard County Court, do certify that the foregoing last Will and Testament of William Graves deceased was produced to Court at the January County Court, 1853.  John Owsley, being sworn, testified that Thomas J. Chilton and Daniel Owsley the two subscribed witnesses to said will both departed this life and that the signature of said Daniel Owsley was in his own proper handwriting approved and ordered to be recorded.

Thereupon the same together with the certificate hath been duly admitted to record in my office.

Given under my hand this 3rd day of January 1853.

Nancy Proctor, Mary Ann and Williamson Mullins are buried in the old Drakes Camp Creek Churchyard.  What happened to the old church is lost at present in antiquity, but a new church was built on the road.  This church burned and a modern church building was built in 1950.  It is known today as Drakes Creek Baptist Church.

On a trace going north from Crab Orchard, KY was the site of Lewis Craig's church located on Gilbert's Creek in 1781.  This is said to be the first church in KY.  The site is now in Garrard Co.  On this trace is a village called Preacherville, which has the distinction of being the only town of that name in the U.S.  This section of KY was the destination of many preachers who visited the territory in pioneer days.  Lewis Craig's people were what was known as "The Traveling Church".  His entire congregation in Virginia moved with him to Kentucky.  (R‑21, R‑114)

Edmund Graves (166) was born about 1762 in Surry Co., NC, and died 12 July 1834 in Shelby Co., KY.  In 1785, Edmund moved with his father to Shelby Co., where he lived until his death.  He was married twice.  He first married Nancy (or Jane) ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  In The Kentucky Gazette, Vol. X, No. 491, dated 25 Jan. 1797 was the following article:  “Whereas my wife Nancy Graves, has eloped from my bed and board without just cause, this is therefore to forwarn all persons from crediting her on my account, as I am determined to pay no debts of her contracting.  Signed Emund Graves”.  He married second widow Judith (or Judah) Holloway on 21 Aug. 1823 in Shelby Co., KY.

According to family legend, Edmund was known as Roman, his mother's name was Pendleton, and he was a descendant of one of three Graves brothers who came to Virginia from England in the 1600's.

Edmund is listed in the first tax list of Shelby Co., KY.  Jane (apparently Edmund's first wife) and Edmund Graves with their two children, Betsy and John, are listed in 1811 with 19 charter members of the Salem (Beech Creek) Baptist Church, which is near Mt. Eden, Ky.

Edmund served as a private with the North Carolina troops in the Rev. War.  He was drafted for two 6-month terms and volunteered for two 3-month terms.  He fought in an engagement against the British near Charleston, S.C., and was in the battles of Camden, Cowan's Ford, and Guilford Court House in N.C.  This was between the years of 1779 and 1781.

One of Edmund's daughters, Susan Ferguson, applied for his pension for him in New Castle, KY in 1834, application executed May 10, 1834.  In order to qualify, she stated that "he was born in 1762 in Surry Co., N.C., and was residing there when he entered the service in March 1779 under the command of Capt Scott, who was attached to Col. Cleveland's Regiment.  By order of General Nash, they marched to join General Lincoln in S.C."  He further stated that he lived in Surry until he came to Shelby Co., KY in 1785.

At the time Susan made application for his pension, they applied to a lawyer, William I. (or J.) Graves of New Castle, KY. (relationship not known).  The daughter stated that Edmund had married twice and had spent nearly all his property, and to add to this, the second Mrs. Graves had not used her influence to contribute to the wishes of the Fergusons.  Susan further said that Edmund was not in his right mind at the time of the application. From the Pensioners List, Edmund Graves, Private, N.C. Line, was paid $42.00, 27 May 1834, at which time he was listed as 72 years old.  Apparently, Edmund died shortly after this, as in July 1834, the Court House Records of Shelby Co., KY, reveal that the estate of Edmund Graves was ordered to be settled.  It lists his widow as Judith Graves (Edmund's second wife), and heirs as David Graves, Richard Graves, William H. Graves, William Ferguson, Joshua Jennings, William Figg, John Graves, and Ben Figg.

There is no will on record, but there is a division of land and settlement of personal property (mentioned above), and a division of slaves and release of the dower right of Judith Graves.

The division of slaves is interesting because the slaves were monetarily valued, then lots were drawn by the heirs and the money was adjusted accordingly. Daughters names were not mentioned but the names of sons-in-law were listed.  The widow, Judith Graves, sold her dower right of the slaves to the heirs, which would bind them to pay to her the legal interest annually on the one-third part of the value of said slaves.  (R‑70, R‑72, R‑301)

Richard ("Dickey") Graves (169) was born about 1768[34] in Surry Co., NC, and died 13 Sept. 1847 in Howard Co., MO[35].  He married Nellie (or Nelly) Tilley, daughter of Lazarus Tilley, on 26 (or 20 or 10) Dec. 1797 in Shelby Co., KY.  She was born about 1780 in KY, and died after 1860, probably in Howard Co., MO.

There was some belief that Richard was a son of Edmund Graves (b. 1762), but this seems very unlikely, considering that Edmund would have been only about 14 years old when Richard was born.  It was also stated that Edmund gave his consent for Richard's marriage.  It appears that both these statements are referring to Richard's nephew who was also named Richard, and who married Nancy Holloway.

Richard was in Shelby Co., KY by 1800, and was listed in both the 1810 and 1820 censuses.  In 1820 the listing is: males, 1(0-10), 1(16-25), 1(45+); females, 1(0-10), 2(10-15), 1(26-44).

In 1818, Richard sold 51 acres on Guist, and in 1819 and 1820 bought property on Beech.  The family moved to Missouri in 1824.  Richard left a will in Howard Co., MO naming heirs: wife Nelly Tilley Graves, and the nine children listed below.  The first 8 children were born in Shelby Co., KY, and the last one in Howard Co., MO.  (R‑70, R‑301)

Susannah ("Suky") Graves (170) was born about 10 May 1780[36] in NC, died 19 Sept. 1851, and was buried in Cloverdale Cem., Cloverdale, Putnam Co., IN.  She married Thomas E. Martin on 22 (or 28) Aug. 1801 in Shelby Co., KY.  He was born about 1774-79 in NC, died about 1837, and was also buried in Cloverdale Cem.

They moved to Indiana, Owen or Putnam Co., about 1827, probably from Breckinridge Co., KY, or another nearby county.  They moved with the Sinclair family; two Martin daughters married two Sinclair sons in Putnam Co., IN.  Thomas was postmaster of Cloverdale, Putnam Co., IN.  He is said to have fought under Gen. Harrison, 1810-12.  (R‑193, R‑301, R‑457)

Samuel Graves (171) was born 10 July 1791, died 7 March 1840, and was buried in Salem Baptist Church Cem., Shelby Co., KY.  He married Priscilla Hedden (or Heddon) on 11 Jan. 1813 (or 8 Jan. 1814) in Shelby Co., KY.

In the 1820 census for Shelby Co., KY his age is listed as 26-44.  The rest of the family is listed: males, 3(0-10), 1(16-18), 1(16-25); females, 2(10-16), 1(26-44).  Considering the age of the older males in the family, Samuel might have had some of his younger brothers with him at that time.

The 1830 Shelby Co., Ky. census shows Samuel as 30-40 years, and the others as: males, 2 males, 0-5, 2 males, 5-10, 2 males, 10-15, 1 male, 15-20; 2 females, 10-15, 1 female, 30-40.

Samuel bought land, as recorded in the grantor records of Shelby Co., from 1824 to 1840, on Jephta, Beech, 6 mile, and Guist.  He was living most of the time in the same area as the rest of the Graves family.  He also witnessed the release of Judith Graves' (widow of Edmund Graves) dower right in 1834.

Samuel died in March 1840 and the 1840 Shelby Co. census listed Priscilla, age 40-50, as head of the household.  There were still six children at home: 1 male, 10-15, 2 males, 15-20, 2 males, 20-30; 1 female, 20-30.

By 1850, Priscilla had moved to Spencer Co., KY.  She was 62 years of age, and with her were three sons and a grandson: Edmund, age 33, David S., age 24, Thomas W., age 23, and William Clayton (grandson), age 10.

Samuel's will was written in 1834 and mentions Edmund as his oldest son, Jacob, Francis Clayton (daughter), and Elizabeth Stearn (daughter), as his children of age. Samuel probably had 7 sons and 4 daughters.  The approximate dates of birth are from the I.G.I.  (R‑70)

Lewis Graves (193) was born 17 July 1760 in Spotsylvania Co., VA (according to his Revolutionary War pension application R4207), and died in 1839 in Newton Co., GA (pension application statement by grandson John Sholars). The records cited in the following paragraphs show that he lived in Chesterfield Co. (Cheraw District), SC and Anson Co., NC before enlisting in 1776.  He apparently lived in Wilkes Co. and Washington Co., GA about 1782-1786, was in Anson Co., NC, 1786-1791, and was in Washington Co. (later Hancock Co.), GA, 1791-1809.  He moved to Jasper Co., GA in 1809, and to Newton Co., GA in 1823.  There is a Lewis Graves recorded on the 1790 and 1800 censuses in Laurens Co., SC, the 1820 census in Monticello, Jasper Co., GA, and the 1830 census in Newton Co., GA.  In 1830, one male and one female ages 70-79 were recorded in this household.

He married Ann (or Amy) Worthen (or Worthy or Worthington) in 1781, about the close of the Rev. War.  A wife Amy signed a Hancock Co. deed in 1808.  Since Lewis was closely associated with a William and Richard Worthan in NC, and later in GA, the last name of his wife may have been Worthan.  The 1800 NC census shows the surnames Worthy, Worthington, Wortham (the most common form), and Wartham, but no Worthan, Worthen, or other similar spellings.  The 1805 Georgia Land Lottery listing shows surnames spelled Wortham, Worthen (including a Richard and William in Washington Co., GA), Worthey, and Worthy.

Lewis entered Revolutionary War service in 1776, while a resident of Chesterfield Co. (Cheraw District), SC (pension app.).  He lived very close to the state line (pension app. of Richard Graves).  He enlisted for a tour of duty in 1781 from Wake Co., NC, and moved to Georgia one year after the war (pension app.).

He was in Wilkes Co., GA in 1785 (Land Grant FFF, p. 444, 100 acres, Early Records of Georgia, by Davidson, vol. 2, p. 65; 1 poll, 100 acres, Ledbetter's district). He was in Washington Co., GA in 1786.  He returned to Anson Co., NC in 1786 (Anson Co. adjoins Chesterfield Co., SC).  Deeds in Anson Co. show that Lewis Graves was there from 1786 to 1791.

Anson Co. Deed Book H, p. 38:  William Worthan sells 200 acres to Lewis Graves.  Both are listed as of Washington Co., GA.  The land was located on Taltons Creek, off Thompson Creek.  William had purchased the land from Richard Worthan in 1784.  The deed was witnessed by Richard and John Graves, as shown in the copy below.

William Worthan to Lewis Graves:  This indenture made the 15th day of October in the year of our Lord 1786 between William Worthan of the County of Washington and State of Georgia, planter, the one part and Lewis Graves of the same place, planter, of the other part.

John L. Graves (194) was born about 1763, according to Varney Graves, although the 1820-1840 GA censuses indicate a birth date of 1770-1775.  According to History of Chattahoochee County, Georgia, he died 1851 in Fayette Co., GA.  The grave of John Graves, Revolutionary soldier, was marked by the DAR in Oct. 1933, and is south of Ga. highway 54, just east of Flint River in Clayton Co., Ga., once Fayette Co., but originally Henry Co., near Mundy's Mill, in the Ward Cem.  John Graves was living with the family of one of his daughters, Elizabeth ("Betsy") Ward at the time of his death.  It seems very likely that he died before 1850, since he was not listed in the Ward household in 1850, and he cannot be found anywhere else in that census.

John married Rebecca Harris about 1792 in SC.  Rebecca died in their home and was also buried in the Ward Cem.  It may be that John had a previous marriage.  Note the birth date of oldest daughter Mary Jane in 1783 (before the marriage date of 1792) and the long period of time between her birth and that of Minton about 1795.  One of the descendants of Mary Jane believed the mother of Mary Jane was a Rutland, but wasn’t positive.

John and his family lived in NC and SC before 1804, and moved to Hancock Co., GA by 1804.  The 1850 census gives the birthplace of John's sons as follows:  David, NC, John Jr., SC, Minton, SC, James, GA.  They were in Capt. Thomas' District, Hancock Co., GA in 1806, along with John's brother Lewis.  They moved to Jasper Co. between 1810 and 1818.  In 1820, when a treaty with the Creek Indians was being negotiated, John Graves, Lewis Graves and John's son David were in Jasper Co., GA.  In the spring of 1821, when this treaty was finalized and Fayette Co. was formed, lands west of Flint River became available for settlers, and John Graves, David Graves, and the rest of John's family moved there.  Family legend is that this move was made by loading all the family possessions in an ox cart.  All of John's children who had not yet married, except for Minton, married in Fayette Co.

By tradition, John Graves and Lewis Graves were brothers.  John witnessed an Anson Co., N.C. deed, William Worthan to Lewis Graves, 15 Oct. 1786.  Other evidence of their connection is shown in the following paragraphs.

1804 Hancock Co., Ga. Tax Roll, Capt. Dixon's District (same district as Lewis Graves):

Samuel Graves, 190-1/2 acres granted Borland, adjoining Graves, Little Ogeechee

John Graves, 1 slave, 578-1/2 acres granted Borland, adjoining Wadsworth, Little Ogeechee


John Graves was shown in the Hancock Co. 1805 and 1807 lottery lists, in the same district as Lewis Graves.

Richard Graves (195) was born 30 Dec. 1765, according to his pension application.  He lived in S.C. and N.C., and served in the Revolution (pension app. S-8598).  Richard declared in the pension application of Lewis Graves that they served together.  Richard signed the stub indent of Lewis Graves in S.C. (S.C. Archives).

Richard married Nancy ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  (The last name of his wife is not known.)

The pension application of Richard Graves states: Resident of Anson Co., N.C. in 1832, and had been for many years.  He entered the service from Chesterfield Co., S.C., and said he lived very close to the N.C. line at that time.  His father told him he entered the service when he was 15 years, 2 months of age, around 1779 or 1780.  His service was witnessed by Thomas Davis, who also was a witness for the application of Lewis Graves.

Joel Gullage, a minister, stated he had known Richard Graves for 48 years, and he was a faithful member of the church.  Reuben Phillips and James Gordon also stated they were well acquainted with Richard.

Included in Richard's pension file is a letter from Levi Adams, attorney, saying a granddaughter of Richard asked him to write and see whether Richard ever received a pension.  The letter was dated Sept. 30, 1860, Henderson Co., Tenn.

Richard Graves was a "messenger" in 1803 from Deep Creek Baptist Church, Chesterfield Co., S.C.

The following are the census records for Richard Graves:

1790 Chesterfield Co., S.C.:  1 male, 16+; 1 male, 0-16; 3 females.

1810 Anson Co., N.C.:  2 males, 0-10; 2 males, 10-16; 1 male, 45+; 2 females, 0-10; 1 female, 10-16; 1 female, 16-26; 1 female, 26-45; 4 slaves.

1820 Anson Co., N.C.:  1 male, 16-18; 2 males, 18-26; 1 male, 45+; 1 female, 0-10; 1 female, 10-16; 1 female, 26-45; 13 slaves.

1830 Anson Co., N.C.:  1 male, 0-5; 1 male, 15-20; 1 male, 50-60; 2 females, 0-5; 1 female, 5-10; 1 female, 10-15; 1 female, 20-30; 15 slaves.

Although there is no proof from these census records of relationship between members of Richard's household, the following summary is one possible interpretation.

Richard, b. 1765, d. 1830-1840 wife, b. 1775-1784 (perhaps about 1775), d. 1820-1830

male     1, b. 1785-1790 (perhaps about 1790)

            2, b. 1794-1800

            3, b. 1794-1800

            4, b. 1802-1804

            5, b. 1800-1810

            6, b. 1820-1825

            7, b. 1825-1830

female  1, b. 1774-1790

            2, b. 1784-1790

            3, b. 1794-1800

            4, b. 1804-1810

            5, b. 1815-1820

            6, b. 1820-1825

            7, b. 1825-1830

            8, b. 1825-1830

Even if the last two males and the last three or four females were grandchildren rather than children of Richard, it seems likely that he had more than the one son, Lewis, who is presently proven.

Absalom Cleveland (196) was born about 1759 in Albemarle Co., VA, died 1838 in Pickens Co., SC, and was buried near his father at Cleveland Plantation, Pickens Co. (or Oconee Co.), SC.  He married Martha ("Patty") Harrison, daughter of Benjamin Harrison and Sarah Bullard, on 11 Nov. 1782 in Wilkes Co., NC.  She may have died and been buried in Oconee Co., SC.  (R‑208, R‑210, R‑211)

Capt. John Cleveland (197), called "Devil John", was born in 1760 (or about 1769) in Culpeper Co., VA, and died in 1810 (or 1805) in Tugaloo, near Jerrett's Bridge, Oconee Co., SC.  He married a widow, Catherine (“Caty”) (Sloan) Montgomery, daughter of William Sloan and Elizabeth ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 9 June 1781 in Wilkes Co., NC.  She was born about 1769 in Co. Antrim, Ireland, and died 31 July 1841 in Pendleton, Anderson Co., SC.  They died and their 4 daughters and 2 sons were raised by their grandparents, Ben and Mary Cleveland, although if Caty didn’t die until 1841, that may not be accurate.

Other than Mary Graves Cleveland, there is some uncertainty about their children.  One of their daughters could have been Catherine Cleveland (b.c. 1788) who married General Rush (perhaps the Thomas Jefferson Rusk or Rush mentioned in connection with John Cleveland's sister, Mary).  (R‑20, R‑205, R‑209, R‑210)

William Graves (259) was born about 1788 in Laurens Co., SC, and died between 1856 and 1860 in Laurens Co., SC.  He married his cousin, Mary ("Polly") Wait, (#383), daughter of John Wait and Frances Graves.  She was born about 1793 in Laurens Co., SC, and had died by 10 June 1844 according to the following information.  Litigation dated 10 June 1844 in Laurens Co., SC regarding the dispersal of lands of John Wait, father of Polly and father-in-law of William, specifically names his children and states "the testator's daughter (Polly) who was intermarried with William Graves has also died…Nancy S. Graves, Elizabeth M. Graves, Joseph F. Graves, and Obed Wait Graves, also William Graves, Jr., Polly F. Graves, James T. Graves, Philip H. Graves, and Peachy K. Graves, her children, nine in number, the last five being minors..."  The matching of the first 5 children's names with the census dates may have some errors.  This family was recorded on the 1850 census in Laurens Co., SC.  A Peachy Graves, age 48, was recorded with this family; it is not known who she is.  In William’s will dated 11 Jan. 1854, only children Elizabeth, Joseph, and William are listed; presumably the other six children have died.  (R‑202)

William (or Williamson) Graves (298) was born about 1785, supposedly near old Richmond, VA, and died about 1843 in Rockcastle Co., KY.  The place of his birth and the date of his death are according to his youngest daughter Martha, who left some notes in the family Bible.  He served in the War of 1812 in Byrne’s Regiment, Virginia Militia as a private.  His name has been given in records both as William and as Williamson.

Williamson married Sarah Evans[44] in KY, either Garrard or Madison Co.  No record of the marriage has been found.  She was born 15 April 1804 in VA[45], was taken sick with paralysis 5 May 1853, and died 26 June 1867.  She was a daughter of Edward Evans and ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Vaughn of Lancaster, Garrard Co., KY.

Sarah's daughter Martha wrote in the family Bible: "It was 1853 that my dear ma was taken sick with paralysis and lived til 1867, 26 day of June, 45 years ago today and my heart overflows with grief to think of her.  I wonder if my children will think of me when I have been gone 45 years."  "April 5, 1914 - 61 years today my dear Mother was stricken with paralysis and never spoke a word for four weeks.  I was 15 the Dec. before and I thought I could not live if ma died.  I loved her better than all else on earth.  She was the best mother ever lived.  My father died when I was 6 and ma raised us alone.  Never would let us tease her about remarrying.  She was so good..."

They lived in Rockcastle Co., KY in 1810, and in Madison Co., KY until about 1841.  Williamson is believed to have died shortly after they moved.  (R‑488, R‑490)

Edmund Pendleton Graves (389) was born 25 Jan. 1824 in Fayette Co., KY, and died 23 Jan. 1905 in Whites Creek, Davidson Co., TN.  He married Helen Clarissa Streck, daughter of Ferdinand Moritz Streck (b. 1792 (Danzig, Prussia), d. 1854 (LA) and Elizabeth Gingery (b. 1791 (PA), d. 1862 (LA), on 14 June 1845 in Ascension Parish, LA.  She was born 20 Feb. 1822 in Ascension Parish, LA, and died 13 Dec. 1918 in Whites Creek, TN.  They were buried in Mt. Olivet Cem., Nashville, TN.  He was a farmer, and she was a homemaker and seamstress.

Edmund’s mother, Ann B. White Graves, died 1830 in Montgomery Co., KY.  The will of John White, Ann’s father, mentions that Hawes Graves owed him a sum of money, and that the children of Hawes and Ann were not to receive their inheritance from him until payment of that debt.  Sometime after Ann’s death, Hawes moved to Davidson Co., TN, and had William B. Ewing appointed trustee for his children Edmund and Louisa.  It is possible that Hawes was unable to pay the debt he owed to John White, and this may have been his motive for moving to Tennessee.  He appears in the 1850 census, age 68, living in the household of William and Martha G. Ewing.  Since their sister Martha was married to Ewing, it is likely that Edmund and Louisa were raised in that household.  After coming of age, Edmund received the money due him from his trustee Ewing, and shortly thereafter he married Helen Streck.

Helen’s aunt was Catherine Gingry Stump.  Evidently Helen spent a lot of time with aunt Catherine in Tennessee.  Catherine had married Frederick Stump when he was 93 and she was 27.  She obviously had no children.  He left her well off financially.  To keep Helen and Edmund in White’s Creek once they married, she gave them 200 acres and $4000.  They built the Graves/Thompson house around 1855.

Edmund and Helen were in the 1880 census for Dist. 24, Davidson Co., TN, page 355B, with children John H., Ferdinand S., Frederick, and Bettie, all single and all born in TN.  The birth information for the children was recorded in the family bible.  Edmund was a farmer.  (R‑351)

John Graves Partlow (396) was born 17 Feb. 1793 in Spotsylvania Co., Va., died 19 Jan. 1870 in Lee Co., Miss., and was buried in Center Hill Cem., Lee Co.  The name of his first wife is not known.  She may possibly have been a Graves.

He married second Malinda (or Melinda) Grimes of Ky. on 3 Oct. 1822 in Fayette Co., Ky.  She was born 20 Dec. 1802, possibly in Fayette Co., Ky., died 9 Feb. 1867 in Lee Co., Miss., and was also buried in Center Hill Cem., Lee Co.  Melinda was a daughter of James Grimes and wife Sarah Bryan, granddaughter of Philip Grimes and wife Mary ‑‑‑‑‑‑, and of William Bryan and wife Mary Boone (sister of Daniel Boone).

They moved to Lawrence Co., Ala. (near Courland) about 1823, and remained there until 1857, when they moved to Itawamba Co., Miss. (a part that is now in Lee Co., Miss.).  They transferred from Liberty Baptist Church, Lawrence Co., Ala. to Center Hill Baptist Church, Itawamba Co., now Lee Co., Miss. in Feb. 1858

According to descendant Thomas Wayne Whitehead, all living descendants of John Graves Partlow and Melinda Grimes are descended from Albert M. Partlow and Dorotha Ann Ruff, although this statement probably just refers to descendants named Partlow.

Catherine ("Katie") Graves (507) was born 23 Feb. (or Dec.) 1773 in Caswell Co., NC, and died 12 Jan. 1860 in Owensboro, Daviess Co., KY.  She married Groves Howard, son of Francis Howard and Ann Allen, on 12 Feb. 1792[67] in Granville Co., NC.  He was born 25 April 1769 in NC, and died 25 Nov. 1848 in Confederate, Lyon Co., KY.

They lived in Caswell Co., NC until about 1816, when they moved to Caldwell (now Lyon) Co., KY, where he died and was buried on his farm (the Rufus Barnett farm, 1/4 mile from Confederate, KY).

Catherine Graves is credited with bringing the Baptist doctrine into the Howard family, which had been Episcopalian in earlier generations.  Several of Catherine's brothers were Baptist ministers.  Her eldest son, whom she named John Graves for her father, was also a Baptist minister of prominence in Kentucky.

After living in Kentucky for some years, Catherine and Groves Howard returned to NC for a visit with relatives.  The trip was made on horseback, a distance of five or six hundred miles.

After the death of Groves Howard, Catherine went to live with their eldest son, Rev. John Graves Howard, of Daviess Co., KY, near Owensboro.  She died there, and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery at Owensboro.  (R‑19, R‑51, R‑113)

His biographer says, "When eminent abilities, valuable public services, an unblemished political integrity, and a stern private virtue contribute to adorn the character of an individual, then it is most proper to set it forth prominently as an example to those who would make themselves useful to their fellow men."  Hon. Calvin Graves was preeminently a man of sterling worth and ability, well educated, thoroughly equipped as a lawyer, a wise counselor and statesman.  He served his state in the Constitutional Convention of 1835, as a member of the House of Commons in 1840, as Speaker of the House in 1842, as a member of the State Senate in 1846 and 1848, and on the Board of Internal Improvements in 1849 and 1850.  He was without personal ambition and declined more prominent positions than he accepted, preferring to be a useful rather than a conspicuous citizen.  He gained for himself, by a conscientious discharge of every duty, the confidence and esteem of everyone who knew him.  (R‑915)

Frances Lea Graves (566) was born 2 Sept. 1807 in Caswell Co., NC, and died 7 Oct. 1829.  She married Josiah Thomas Settle, son of David Settle and Rhoda Mullins, on 8 June 1826 in Caswell Co., NC.  He was born 24 Aug. 1799 in Rockingham Co., NC, died 13 May 1869 in Hamilton, Butler Co., OH, and was buried in Greenwood Cem., Hamilton, OH.

After Frances died, Josiah became involved with Nancy Graves (one of his slaves), started having children with her, moved from Rockingham, NC to Mississippi, then to Ohio. They finally married in 1858.  Josiah and Nancy continued their journey and settled in Tishomingo Co., Mississippi. Josiah purchased land Oct. 7, 1850 from Samuel & Fatinea Flake in Sec. 12 Twp. --, Range 6, where in 1853 their youngest daughter Josephine was born.  Josiah being devoted to his children and their mother, he manumitted them several years after arriving in Mississippi. After being informed that the laws of the State forbade free Negroes residing therein, Settle left in March 1856 for Hamilton, Ohio, where he relocated and purchased a home for them.  He spent summer vacations with his family in Ohio and maintained his Southern plantation the latter part of the year.  Josiah sold his last parcel of land in Corinth, Mississippi to C. P. Polk.  (All land records were destroyed when the Court House burnt in Luka, Tishomingo Co. several years ago and the only records to be found were in Corinth, Alcorn Co., Mississippi so he could have sold land later).  We know that his will was written in the fall of 1860 in Tishomingo Co., Mississippi.  Another problem arose concerning his relations with his slave family.  His northern neighbor informed him that he had to discontinue the relations with the neighbor's family unless he married the mother.  He immediately replied: "That is what I have always desired to do."  In 1858 his slave mistress, Nancy, became his lawful wife in a ceremony witnessed by their children, who became his legitimate heirs.  The advent of the Civil War in 1861 brought Settle northward where he remained until he died in 1869.  At no time do you find Nancy and Josiah living in the same house; Nancy lived with the younger children and Josiah lived with the older children.  On June 8, 1860 Nancy was living next door to Josiah in Hanover Twp., Butler Co., OH.  After Josiah died, Nancy was recorded on the 1870 census, dated July 19, 1870, in Fourth Ward, Hamilton, Ohio and on the 1880 census, dated June 9, 1880, in Hanover Twp., Butler Co., OH.  In 1883, she lived at 510 S. 9th St., Richmond, Indiana.
