Catharine Graves (1) was born 15 March 1775, probably in KY, and died 12 March 1865 in Cass Co. or Menard Co., IL. She married John Hawthorn, son of John Hawthorn and Margaret Greene. He was born 8 Aug. 1775, probably in KY, and died 9 Sept. 1850 in Cass Co. or Menard Co., IL. They were both buried in Newmansville Cem. (sometimes known as Middlecreek Cem.), which is close to the line between the two counties.

In addition to John and Catharine Hawthorn, Newmansville Cem. contains the graves of Robert Hawthorn and his wife, Mary A., with her date of death 26 July 1872, aged 65 years. There are many Hawthorn marriages in the Cass Co. marriage records, but no clue to the parentage of John has been found, and no others seem to be buried in Cass Co.

According to the Mason Co. history, James Graves was the father of Catherine Graves. He was supposedly from Scotland. (R-1, R-2)
