SAMUEL GRAVES

 

1630 Settler of Lynn, Massachusetts

and His Descendants

 

 

ANCESTRY OF SAMUEL GRAVES

 

The parents of Samuel Graves have not yet been found.  However, it appears that he was from Norfolk or Lincolnshire, England.  DNA analysis of descendants has shown that Samuel Graves was from the same family as Herbert Fletcher Graves of Lincolnshire (genealogy 428).  That family lived at Chapel Hill and New York, Lincolnshire, about 8-10 miles northwest of Boston, Lincolnshire.

There has also been speculation that Samuel Graves was from King’s Lynn, Norfolk, based mainly on the supposition that Lynn, MA, was named for King’s Lynn by one or more of the early settlers.  That connection is now supported by the Graves DNA results.  King’s Lynn is about 25 miles southeast of Boston.

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Samuel Graves (1) was born in England.  He came to America about 1630, possibly as part of the Endicott group of 1628 or the Winthrop fleet of 1630.  According to one account, he sailed from Southampton, England in the early spring of 1630 to New England.

He took up residence at Lynn, Mass., on the turnpike west of Floating Bridge, and the neighborhood in which he lived was called "Graves End" or "Gravesend" for more than 200 years.  It is now known as Glenmere.

The first homestead was taken down in 1648 and the present one (as of 1900) erected, which has been from time to time remodeled, but still retains the appearance of old-time architecture.  The house was still occupied by descendants of the original settler, and Mrs. Jane Mansfield, a granddaughter of Rand Graves, celebrated her 99th birthday in the old place on 3 Dec. 1900.

Samuel Graves was a farmer and a man of wealth.  In 1635 he gave about 300 pounds for the support of the Colonial Government.  He had three sons, all born in England between 1620 and 1630.  (R‑201)

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF SAMUEL GRAVES (1)

Thomas Graves (2) was born about 1620 in England, and was brought to America by his father in 1630.  He married Hannah ‑‑‑‑‑‑, and they continued to live in Lynn, Mass. until his death 24 Jan. 1696/7.  (There is some belief that her name was Hannah Simmons.)

His will dated 22 Jan. 1696/7, and probated 15 Feb. 1696/7, names all his children, and reminds them to "be tender and careful of their aged mother who hath been tender and industrious."  He gave his lands to his three sons Samuel, Mark and Thomas, and small legacies in money to his daughters.  He made his son Samuel his executor.  Inventory of his estate: 125, 15, 00.  Thomas gave his lands in Lynn, with houses, to his sons Samuel and Mark, except 3 acres (adjoining land purchased of Joseph Farr) to his son Thomas.

His occupation was that of mariner as well as farmer. He and Mark Graves testified at a session of the Court in 1653 to making several voyages in the boats of the Iron Works at Saugus to Boston, Weymouth, Braintree and Hingham, and in 1658 he testified that his boat carried seven tons of bar iron and delivered it to Mr. Hutchins. The iron works were in operation in 1643, the first in America.  (R‑13, R‑201)

Mark Graves (3) was born about 1623 in England, and died about 1708-9 in Lynn, Essex Co., Mass.  He was brought to America by his father in 1630.  He first married Amy ‑‑‑‑‑‑, probably about 1648, in Andover, Essex Co., Mass. She was born about 1627, and died 20 Feb. 1665 in Andover.  He lived in Lynn, Mass. until about 1658, when he moved to Andover.  He secondly married Elizabeth Knights, daughter of William and Elizabeth Knights of Lynn, on 14 Nov. 1667 (according to Marriages in Andover, N.E. Hist. and Gen. Register, vol. III, no. 1, p. 66). She was born 1642 and died in 1705.  She was the widow of John Farrington, a cooper, and at one time a resident of Marblehead, Mass.  Mark Graves lived for a time at Ipswich in 1678, at Andover in 1683, at Manchester in 1686, at Andover again in 1690, and afterwards and until his death at Lynn.

From Ipswich Court Records of 1665, Essex County Quarterly Court Records: "Marke Graves, aged about 45 years, deposed that on 10:6:1665, about an hour before sunset, Hanah Hutchinson came to his house, his daughter only being home, and asked to borrow some strong liquor for the toothache.  His daughter did not consent, and said Hanah told her that a cow of her father's was running away from their pasture, and she ran to tell her father who was at a neighbor's house, not far off, leaving said Hanah in the room where there was a bottle of liquor.  Deponent found that his cow was in the pasture and the bottle was nearly empty.  His wife said there was a quarter of a pint there, etc.  Sworn 12:6:1665 before Simon Bradstreete.

Hanah Hutchinson said that the girl told her there was vinegar in the bottle, etc.  Also that she would kill the child or herself, etc."

Hanah was severely whipped for lying, cursing and stealing.

From Salem Quarterly Court Records of June 1677: "Mark Graves, aged about fifty-five years, and Elizabeth, his wife, aged about thirty-seven years, deposed that since Hannah, wife of Mr. John Blaine died, said Blaine and six of his children came from Mr. Ralph King's to dwell at the farmhouse where deponents and they lived under one roof.  When the children came they were decently clothed, but during the three quarters of a year that they lived there, he did not provide for them and they suffered very much, and had it not been for their friends through pity taking some of them from him and relieving them, they might have perished.  They suffered both for food and raiment, and what money Blaine received for wood or timber or for the work of his team was spent in drink, he coming home late at night in a quarrelsome mood and distempered with drink.  He had only one cow to provide for the family, etc.  Amy, daughter of Mark Graves, aged about seventeen years, deposed the same.  Sworn in court."

From Salem Quarterly Court Records of June 1682: "Mathew Farrington, Sr. v. Mark Graves.  Verdict for plaintiff.  Appealed to the next Court of Assistants. Defendant bound, with Henry Bailey and Phillip Fowler as sureties.

Writ: Matthew Farrington, Sr. v. Mark Graves, living at Mr. Hubard's farm at Ipswich; for not allowing him disbursements upon the tide mill and housing amounting to 20 li., for his part of said mill and housing being so much better at the end of the lease than when he entered upon it; signed by John Fuller, for the court and town of Lynn; and served by Henery Skerry, marshal of Salem, by attachment of a table and great chair of defendant..."  (R‑9, R‑13, R‑18, R‑25, R‑201)

There is some uncertainty about who belongs where.)  He apparently married Goody ‑‑‑‑‑‑, since daughter Dorothy was baptized Sept. 21, 1684 in Beverly, Mass., “daughter of Goody Graves of Lynn Church, baptized here in communion of churches.”  (R‑201)

Elizabeth Graves (12) was born about 1662 in Lynn, Essex Co., Mass.  She married Thomas Brewer (or Bruer) on 4 Dec. 1682 in Lynn.  Thomas was born about 1657, baptized 13 Nov. 1659, was aged over 14 in 1672, and died by 14 March 1709, perhaps by 10 Dec. 1706.

Thomas was the only son of Crispus Brewer of Boston and Lynn, Mass., born probably in England, about 1625-30, died in Lynn, Essex Co., Mass., between 10 Dec. 1706 and 23 Jan. 1707, intestate.  He married, about 1652, Mary ‑‑‑‑‑‑, who died in Lynn, 3 May 1693, intestate. Thomas's sister, Sarah, married Samuel Graves, brother of Elizabeth Graves.

Elizabeth was probably the widow Brewer who had a lame boy, 14 March 1708/9 (Lynn Town Records, 2:53).  See Essex Antiquarian, 12:45, for more data.

In 1678, Thomas Brewer took the oath of allegiance in Lynn, vide ante.  Note that, 14 Dec. 1697, "Voated that Thomas Brewer shall have ten pounds to help pay the doctor for his care"; granted to him six poles of town common to improve, 8 March 1698/99 (Lynn Town Records, 1:53, 60).  The files also show that Thomas of Lynn took the oath 26 Feb. 1677, and that he owed Henry Collins 10 days work on the bridge in June 1682 (Essex Files, 6:399; 7:158; 8:364).  8 March 1699/1700, Thomas Brewer was to improve some land that he had worked on the last year (Lynn Town Records, 1:65).

All their children were born in Lynn, Mass.  (R‑201, R‑205)

  67.  John Brewer, b. 10 May 1700.  Is this the "lame boy" referred to earlier?  This may possibly be the John Brewer who married Mary Coats on 15 March 1722/23 in Lynn.

Abraham Graves (13) was born about 1649 at Lynn, Mass. He first married Anna Hayward on 28 June 1677 in Concord, Mass.  He secondly married Sarah Dunton, daughter of Nathaniel Dunton of Andover, formerly of Reading, Mass., on 12 Sept. 1705.  They lived at the south end of Andover, where he died 16 June 1729 at age 80.  Sarah, his wife, died 21 June 1750 in Andover in her 91st year.  (R‑10, R‑201, R‑206)

Capt. Ebenezer Graves (14) was born about 1651 in Lynn, Mass.  He first married Mrs. Elizabeth (Stretton) Hopkins (her name also given as Eliphal Stratton), daughter of William Stretton and Elizabeth ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 21 Aug. 1715 in Boston, Mass.  She was born 26 April 1689 in Boston, died 15 April 1717, and was buried at Capps Hill Cem., Boston. He then married Sarah (Barrett) Howell, daughter of Samuel Barrett, on 14 Feb. 1718 in Boston.  He died in Ireland in May 1719, while on a voyage.  He was a mariner and owned shares of at least two ships.  He lived in Boston.  After he died, his widow Sarah married William Russell on 2 Oct. 1724.

There is some uncertainty concerning Ebenezer Graves, some of which is discussed in the following two articles from the Boston Transcript.

"Boston Transcript, Jan. 19, 1914.

*3254. 1. Graves, Hibbard.  C.H.A., Dec. 29, 1913. Without wishing to be over critical, I think that the style of C.H.A., while entertaining, leaves us often in doubt as to what are put forward as facts and what as surmises merely.

There was an Ebenezer Graves, 'mariner' (captain of the John and William of Boston), who made his will in 1719, and substantially as C.H.A. quotes.  He left a bequest of 10 pounds to Mrs., not Miss, Esther Graves, though I agree that this is probably a courtesy title for a spinster.  He left also a bequest of 10 pounds to Mrs. Dorothy Heborne; though this may be a form of Hibbard.  Yet it is well to quote names from a will as written when offered as evidence.  C.H.A. claims that Dorothy Graves, who married John Hibbard in 1708, was a daughter of this Ebenezer Graves above, and claims Ebenezer as a Lynn man, born before 1657, the date when Hannah, daughter of Mark (2) Graves is recorded.  Lynn Vital Records, published, show a 'Hester Graves, daughter of Marke', born 10:12:1668.  Was it not this Hester Graves that Ebenezer remembered in his will?  Lynn records also show the intention of marriage of Elizabeth Graves to Jonathan Hobbs of Ipswich, published March 8, 1700/1.  Was it not this Elizabeth Hobbs that Ebenezer remembered in his will?  Lynn records also show the intention of marriage of Dorothy Graves of Lynn to John Hebard of Beverly, published May 10, 1714.  Were there two Dorothys in the field?  Is it not likely that the Hester Graves, Elizabeth Hobbs and Dorothy Heborne of Ebenezer Graves' will were his sisters rather than his daughters?

As to Mrs. Elizabeth Stratton, to whom Ebenezer Graves bequeathed a 'three pint silver tankard', if I but knew her parentage I should rejoice.  Her relationship to Ebenezer Graves was that of a much revered motheR‑in-law, it may be presumed.  She was the widow of William Stratton, and her gravestone still stands on Copp's Hill beside those of her husband's father and mother.  Among other children, William and Elizabeth had a daughter Eliphal Stratton born 1690, married in Boston, May 21, 1708, Samuel Hopkins, and second, on April 21, 1715, Ebenezer Graves.  (Lynn records give the intentions of marriage of Ebenezer Graves of Lynn and Mrs. Eliphal Hopkins of Boston, published May 10, 1714.)  Eliphal (Stratton) Hopkins Graves died April 15, 1717, aged twenty-seven years.  This would seem to offer grounds enough to place Mrs. Elizabeth Stratton as an honored and respected mother-in-law, who, being well-to-do as her known affairs show, was most appropriately remembered by a keepsake.

To go back a little, Sarah, daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Manning) Barrat, born in Boston, Jan. 8, 1694/5, married Charles Hamell on June 17, 1714.  She married, second, on Feb. 14, 1717/18, Ebenezer Graves.  She married, third, on Oct. 2, 1724, William Russell.  Samuel Barrett, in his will made in 1733, named all of his eleven children, and among them, his daughter, Sarah Russell.  One son, George, was cut off with a cash payment.  The other ten inherited the property.  Samuel Barratt was the executor of Ebenezer Graves' will.  His son John Barrett was made executor of the estate and guardian to Samuel Graves after Samuel Barrett's death. When Samuel Graves reached his majority, he joined with Thornton, Samuel, Edward, John and Susanna Barrett and Mary Coffin, Lydia Lewis and Mercy Skinner in the sale of nine-tenths on their interest in certain property to Isaiah Barrett, also a child of Samuel Barrett Sr.  These are the same children named in Samuel Barrett's will, except that Samuel Graves had taken the interest that was his mother Sarah Russell's.  Samuel Graves deposed that he was fifteen years old in 1734.  He gave his guardian a full acquittance in 1740.  This shows that he was born around 1718-19, and son of Sarah Barratt.  Boston records give: 'Samuel, son of Ebenezer Graves and Sarah his wife, born Dec. 22, 1718.'

Captain Ebenezer Graves was a Lynn man, of course, but is it reasonable to think that a man born at least as early as 1655 would marry two wives after his sixtieth year, and both young women?

Samuel, son of Ebenezer above, went to Marblehead, where he appears as a merchant and shipbuilder.  He probably married there Sept. 6, 1744, Sarah, daughter of John and Sarah Bayley, who was born at Marblehead July 31, 1720.  They had a son Ebenezer baptized March 21, 1745; Samuel, baptized March 8, 1747; and Samuel again, born April 17, 1748.

Thomas Graves, brother of Captain Ebenezer, left two sons, John Graves of Dedham and Ebenezer Graves of Marblehead.  This last Ebenezer probably married Sarah Lovess of Boston, their intention of marriage being published Oct. 1, 1741.  He was deceased in 1744, when his widow, Sarah, sold the Hull Street house to John Graves of Dedham, and in the deed, states that her husband, Ebenezer, and John were the two sons of Thomas Graves.  Both Captain Ebenezer and his brother Thomas Graves owned this Hull St. house at different times. Perhaps Ebenezer held a mortgage only, but I think that Philip Howell bought the place of Captain Ebenezer, who owned it in 1715.  Philip Howell and wife sold it to Thomas Graves in 1728.  Captain Ebenezer had property on Love Street, or Lane Street, and his son, Samuel, sold it about 1744.

In 1776, Ann (3) Stratton, daughter of William and Elizabeth and sister of Eliphal, who married Captain Ebenezer Graves, made her will and, among other bequests, gave a silver tankard, and perhaps the Graves heirloom, inherited from her mother, to her kinsman, Edward Ladd Sanders, a grandson of Bridget Stratton, and who married Eunice Marshall, granddaughter of Ann Stratton.  These three, William, Bridget, and Ann, were the children of Bartholomew and Eliphal (Sanford) Stratton, Eliphal being the daughter of Governor John Sanford of Rhode Island.

Nauset.

Boston Transcript, Jan. 28, 1914.

*3254. 1. Graves, Hibbard.  'Nauset', Jan. 19, 1914. 'Nauset' will note that I offered all the papers I had on the subject, and gave it as my opinion only that these women might be the daughters of Ebenezer Graves.  If they were his sisters, perhaps the Ebenezer Graves who was husband of Sarah Barrett was a son of the Ebenezer (3), and was left to do some late return to the brothers and sisters of his father.  The facts are the quoted deeds and probates referred to; the surmises are all as to the relationship of Ebenezer of the 1719 probate to the parties to whom he left legacies.  This has been a puzzle to a lot of us for several years, and it was my idea to lay it before the Transcript experts for their consideration, in such a way as to call attention.  Glad you are entertained.  So was I when you said you doubted the marriage of the Ebenezer to two young women on account of his age.  I do not know myself when Ebenezer was born.  So far I have seen no deposition and, as the 1719 man was buried in old Ireland, we are not likely to get his age at death.  For all I can see, he may have been married three times.  First to the mother of Dorothy, maybe an only child by his first wife, to the Stratton lady in 1708, who may have left a daughter Elizabeth, for all I can see to the contrary, who got a tankard, which was an heirloom in her own mother's family.  She and Dorothy may have been his two daughters, already well endowed, Dorothy by her father at the time of her marriage with Hibbard and Elizabeth, already inheriting her mother Stratton's estate, so well provided for.  Cannot you find some marriage contract to that effect, made to protect Elizabeth Stratton, a possible child by the second wife, from being obliged to share her material estate with a half sister Dorothy?  Samuel also had his Barrett estates from being set off to their need.

Now as to the age of the possible father of Dorothy, she was married to John Hibbard in 1708; he was born 1682 and was alive in Methuen as late as 1750.  Elisabeth, the eldest child, born in 1709; Ebenezer, the eldest son in 1710; John, 1716; Joseph, 1726; Daniel, 1728; Ruth, 1730, was called daughter of John Hibbard Jr., and wife Dorcas in baptisms, and in the margin of the records, Dorcas Graves by some hand added; Joseph Hibbard, uncle of John who married Dorothy, had a daughter Dorcas, who married Nathaniel Abbott in Andover, but I do not find any Dorcas, either Graves of Hibberd, early in these lines on the records, nor any John Jr., with a wife Dorcas. John's father married Abigail Graves in 1670, and second, Ruth Wheeler in 1679; third, to a Lydia.

Elisabeth, Ruth, and Martha were sisters of young John, all near his age, but the name of Ebenezer to the eldest son rather favored my theory that Dorothy was a daughter to our Andover Ebenezer, a mariner, by a first wife somewhere.  Daniel was a brother of young John also, so the only new name dropped into this different list was the one of Ebenezer.  John and Dorothy moved a good deal - Lynn, Beverly, Andover and Methuen.  Elisabeth Farrington, formerly a Knight, widow of John Farrington of Lynn, was Mark's second wife, and may have furnished a first wife for Ebenezer, mother of Dorothy.

I have had spells of reading up all the Farrington papers, without avail as yet.  The one brother and sister Esther may have had less from the old father during his life so Ebenezer tried to make it up to them, as Mark may have spent estate, held by right of the mother, of one at least.  Elisabeth, born 1659, was the last child of Amy; did she marry William Stratton?  Did her daughter marry cousin Ebenezer Graves, son of the older man in 1708?  If her mother Elisabeth was sister of Ebenezer, son of Mark by the first wife Amy, a daughter would hardly marry her uncle, but if he was dead and his son Ebenezer was left to carry out the unsettled affairs of his father, it would be a reasonable guess that he took for one wife his cousin.  There was likely to be a second daughter Elisabeth to old Mark by Elisabeth Farrington, the second wife, who would be eligible for Hobbs in 1701.

There is no record of any Dorothy to Mark's second wife, and she may have been at least eighteen in 1708, born about 1690.  I feel sure that among the grandchildren of Mark and Amy somewhere, Dorothy lived in Lynn, at the time of marriage in 1708.  As to Ebenezer, son of Mark, being about sixty in 1715, when he married Miss Stratton, if not a relative, he was at an age of course more suitable for a grandparent.  We had in Andover an elderly man who lost his mother at the age of 62, got lonesome, married in six years a lady 28 years his junior, by whom he had one son, who married twice, and who had three sons and two daughters and as smart a lot of grandchildren as one sees anywhere, still surviving.  There is no space nor time for the six marriage items of a Richardson of Billerica, some of whose folks lived here, and many other examples too numerous to quote.  The facts don't seem to fit first rate theory as yet, but we may stumble upon some paper in the Methuen man's line which I have not yet recovered, that will tell the tale.  I will also examine our tax list but I fear Ebenezer got away to sea before he paid a poll tax here.

Many thanks for added facts.  C.H.A."  (R‑9, R‑201)

Joe Cook (R‑68) reported that Dorothy Graves was baptized Sept. 21, 1684 in Beverly, MA, “daughter of Goody Graves of Lynn Church baptized here in communion of churches.”  It is not known why Dorothy’s father was not listed on the church record page, since other baptism records listed both parents.  From vital records of Methuen, MA: “Dorothy Hibbard, widow or relict of John Hibbard, died August 16, 1766, in the eighty-first year of her age.”  This information and more is online.

John's father, John, was born 24 Jan. 1642/3 in Salem, Mass., died 26 March 1718 in Beverly, Mass., and first married Abigail Graves of Lynn, Mass. on 20 Oct. 1670. It is not known who Abigail was, but it is suspected that she may have been a granddaughter of original immigrant Samuel Graves of Lynn.  A brother of John, Joseph Hibbert, married Elizabeth Graves on the same day, 20 Oct. 1670, and it is reasonable to assume that Abigail and Elizabeth were sisters.

Dorothy and John first lived in Lynn, Mass., where their first two children were born, then in Beverly, where their next child was born.  They then lived in Andover, Mass. where their next four children were born, then in Haverhill, and finally in Methuen, Mass., where their last two children were born.  These are the ancestors of Mrs. Mary James Borden (R‑2) and of Mrs. Tahsin Yigit (R‑3).  The descendants of Dorothy and John Hibbard are given in Genealogy of the Hibbard Family, compiled and published by Augustine George Hibbard, Woodstock, Conn., 1901.  (R‑2, R‑3, R‑68, R‑200, R‑201, R‑207)

CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM GRAVES (13) AND ANNA HAYWARD

Samuel Graves (71) was born 3 Jan. 1684 in Andover, Mass., and died in 1747 in Haverhill, Mass.  He first married Sarah Perkins, daughter of James Perkins and Leah Cox of Hampton, N.H., in Salisbury, Mass.  She was born 3 Oct. 1682, and died 16 July 1724 in Londonderry (then Nutfield), N.H.

He secondly married Martha Bond, widow of John Bond of Haverhill, on 29 Jan. 1725.  Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, pp. 66-7, states: John Bond, b. 12 Oct. 1688, son of Joseph Bond of Haverhill, b. 1653.  Adm. estate of John Bond of Haverhill 5 June 1721.

Martha survived Samuel and was appointed Administratrix of his estate on 28 Oct. 1747.  He moved from Londonderry to Kingston, N.H. in 1728, and to Haverhill, Mass. about 1741.

The following information substantiates the idea that Samuel Graves of Haverhill married Martha Bond, and that she was a daughter of Richard Hall, married first to John Bond, who died 1 May 1721.

The Williams genealogy (Cornelia Bartow Williams, Descendants of John Williams of Newbury and Haverhill, Mass.) states on page 25: John Bond, b. 12 Oct. 1688, d. 1 May 1721, m. 1715, Mary Hall.  Children: Sarah, b. 21 Oct. 1716, d. 1 May 1721; John, b. 14 Jan. 1718/19; Jonathan, b. 14 Nov. 1721, d. 1 May 1721.  There is a statement that "John Bond and his family (except son John) were drowned 1 May 1721 in the Merrimac River." This account is followed by an extensive bibliography.

The deaths of Sarah and Jonathan as given in this genealogy are not borne out by the Haverhill vital records.  That of the father is.  Vital Records of Haverhill, Mass. shows the following.  Haverhill births: John, son of Joseph and Sarah (Williams) Bond, b. 12 Oct. 1688.  Children of John and ‑‑‑‑‑‑ (Hall) Bond: Sarah, b. 21 Oct. 1716; John, b. 14 Jan. 1718/19; Jonathan, b. 14 Nov. 1721.  Haverhill marriages: John Bond and ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Hall, before 1716.  Haverhill deaths: John Bond, husband ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Hall, drowned 1 May 1721.

According to this, Jonathan Bond was born after his father's death, confirming the mother's survival of the drowning accident.

There is other information from Vital Records of Bradford, Mass.  Bradford was across the Merrimac River from Haverhill, and is now a part of Haverhill.  Bradford births: Daughters of Richard and Martha Hall:  Mary, b. 1684, Martha, b. 11 March 1686/7.  Bradford marriages: Jo(h)n Bond and Mary Hale, (Dec. 8) 1715 (from the records of the First Congregational Church of Bradford). This shows that Richard and Martha Hall of Bradford did have a daughter Martha and that her age was such as to make her a more likely wife of John Bond than her sister Mary.

It is not clear how the compilers of the Haverhill vital records determined the surname of the wife of John Bond but did not know her first name.  The writer of the Williams genealogy apparently relied on the Bradford records for the first name.  The lack of definition of this name in the Haverhill records does at least throw the name Mary into question.

There was discussion of these families in the genealogy column of the Boston Transcript in the early part of this century.  Item 6466 of the column of 15 July 1903 states that Richard Hall was an original member of the Bradford church and that his wife Martha joined from Haverhill in 1682.  Item 6219 of 6 Sept. 1904 says that Richard Hall was of Bradford as early as 1673 and died 4 March 1730; and that his will of 18 Nov. 1723, proved 30 March 1730, mentions present wife Martha, sons John, Joseph and Richard, and daughter Mary Hall.  If true, this means that Mary was unmarried, giving further support to the thesis that it was her sister Martha instead who married John Bond.  Item 1524 of 31 Oct. 1910, supplemented by an item of the same number in the 14 Nov. 1910 issue of the Transcript, attempts to trace the ancestry of Richard Hall of Bradford, Deacon John Hall of Dover, N.H., and Ralph Hall, "progenitor of the Halls of Exeter, N.H.", who are postulated to be brothers to John Hall, baptized at Bradford, Yorkshire, on 12 Feb. 1564.  He was the son of John and Ann (Morton) Hall. Lastly, item 4474 of the Transcript of 27 Jan. 1915, replying to an earlier query, states that John Bond, son of John and Sarah (Williams) Bond and grandson of John and Hester (Blakely) Bond of Newbury and Haverhill, was born Haverhill 12 Oct. 1688; married Martha Hall, born Bradford 11 March 1686/7, daughter of Richard Hall; and was drowned 1 May 1721.  His widow married Samuel Graves. The item does not mention sources, but gives its information with finality.  (R‑27, R‑201)

John Graves (74) was born 11 June 1691 at Andover, Mass. It may be that he died in 1790, nearly 100 years old, and his son Crispus was appointed administrator of his estate on 3 Oct. 1790.  However, based on the baptismal records of the First Church of Falmouth, Maine, it appears more likely that John died in 1726 and his younger brother, William, married his widow, having 6 children that have sometimes been attributed to John.

John went at an early age to that portion of Mass. which is now the State of Maine, and settled in Falmouth, where lands were granted to him in 1721.  He married Elizabeth Bean, daughter of Captain Joseph Bean and Joanna Treethy of York, Maine, about 1724.  She was born 21 May 1704.  He was on the Maine Militia Master Roll in Capt. Larraby's Co., April to Nov. 1722.  His daughters were said to have married Messrs. Stacy, Woodbury and Cutler.

Note: John Graves did not marry Martha Mitten as some have believed.  The John Graves who married Martha Mitton (or Mitten) arrived from England about 1673 (according to Roland B. Graves), and married Martha of Ipswich prior to 8 Nov. 1677.  Martha was a daughter of Michael Mitton. John and Martha did move to Falmouth, Me. and stayed there briefly before moving to New Hampshire and eventually to Rhode Island.  The fact that they were in Falmouth for a short time probably led to the confusion.  (The basis for this paragraph is found in the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and N.H., by Sybil Noyes, Genealogical Pub. Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1976.)

Falmouth records indicate that John Graves was granted 30 acres of land on the west side of the Persumscott River (Casco side) on 3 July 1721.  On 10 April 1727 John was assessed 160 pounds for the salary, board and parsonage for the Reverend Thomas Smith of the First Parish.  On 27 April 1727 a house lot was laid out for John in the First Parish.  Later on, after he had maintained the land for seven to ten years, he obtained permanent title.  The mark for John Graves' creatures was a "crape on the top of each ere".  Also, John was granted 10 acres of land 1 April 1724.  John was appointed a Constable at one time by the town of Falmouth.

It is interesting to note one reason records of early Falmouth are so difficult to find today is that on October 17, 1775 (about 6 months after the battles of Concord and Lexington) Captain Mowatt in command of 5 ships dispatched from Boston (by Admiral Thomas Graves, in command of the British fleet blockading Boston harbor) completely destroyed Falmouth by bombardment, and a shore party burned all buildings out of reach of the ships' cannon.  Falmouth at that time was the largest and richest town in Maine, composed of about 400 dwelling houses.  With winter fast approaching, the early settlers must have had severe problems and hardships.  The reason for this attack was that the patriotic settlers in Falmouth had refused to permit the Tories to sell supplies to ships of the British Navy and this was their punishment.  (See The History of Maine, by John S. C. Abbott.)

The four sons of John and William (referred to by Rev. Charles N. Sinnett, R‑206) - Samuel, Joseph, Johnson, and John - came to Topsham, Me. from Falmouth at different times, about 1762.  These were the four "brothers" discussed by Rev. Sinnett.  It was common in colonial days to refer to half-brothers as brothers.  Joseph and Samuel were the grantees of a deed of 1000 acres near and convenient to the two branches of the western stream of Cathance River.  Deed recorded 16 March 1758.

Woodman in his sketch of Topsham, Maine wrote: "The four Graves brothers who settled at Topsham, Maine came to America from Gloucestershire, England, and went to Falmouth, Maine.  The date is not known.  Together these four brothers had 500 acres of the Topsham, Maine millwright in a body.  Samuel Graves had the southwest division of 150 acres; Joseph Graves had the next 100 acres.  Johnson Graves, with his brother John Graves (who came to Topsham, Maine later than the other three brothers) had 250 acres of land adjoining the land of Joseph Graves, who lived and died on his lot."

"Joseph Graves, Samuel Graves, Samuel Staples (?), brothers of Johnson Graves, but all of them said to be of Falmouth, but now of a place called Topsham, Maine, are grantees for 209 pounds and  and 1/2 of one thousand acres to be laid out near and convenient to the two branches of the western stream of Cathance River.  The grantees are Samuel Waterhouse of Boston, merchant, and Hannah, his wife, the only representative and daughter of Job Lewis, Esqr., late of Boston.  They sell in said deed all our right, which they declare to be one-half of the said one thousand acres, as same is described in writing of a deed of Feb. 20, 1740 from Henry Gibbs to our said father, Job Lewis.  Recorded at York Co., Maine. References, etc.  (The other half of the above mentioned land is said to have belonged to Samuel Winchell and others.)"

The 1790 census for the Town of Topsham, Maine, indicates John headed a family of 3 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 3 females; Johnson headed a family of 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 3 females; Samuel headed a family of 2 males over 16, 4 males under 16, and 4 females.

The 1800 census indicated John Jr. headed a family of 1 male over 16 and 5 females; Johnson headed a family of 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 2 females; Joseph headed a family of 1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, and 2 females.

The three children shown below are listed in the baptismal records of the First Church of Falmouth, Maine.  (R‑10, R‑13, R‑201, R‑206)

William Graves (76) was apparently a younger brother of John Graves, based largely on baptismal records of their children in the First Church of Falmouth, Maine, and accounts of Rev. Charles N. Sinnett and others.  He apparently married Elizabeth Bean, daughter of Captain Joseph Bean and Joanna Treethy of York, Maine, about 1727.  (R‑10, R‑206)

Mary Graves (172) was born 29 July 1729 in Haverhill, Essex Co., Mass., was baptized 11 Jan. 1729/30 in Second Church, Salisbury (or Amesbury), Mass., and died 1 Oct. 1807 in Haverhill, Mass.  She married Jonathan Shepard on 30 May 1751 in Haverhill, Mass.  (John Card Graves said she probably married Moses Call, but nothing has been found to support this.)  Sources for these facts are: Jacobus, The Shepard Families of New England, vol. III, p. 355; Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, p. 511, from records of Second Church of Amesbury; and inscriptions in the family Bible belonging to Mehitable Shepard, daughter of Jonathan Shepard and Mary Graves. Included in the Bible entries are the names of Mary's parents, "Martha Graves" and "Samuel Graves of King Street, Ipswich."  There are no other Graves names in the Bible.

From Jacobus's book (with slight editing changes): Jonathan Shepard, son of Jonathan Shepard, was born 22 Sept. 1728 and died in 1793 (before 29 April), both in Haverhill, Mass.  He was admitted to the First Congregational Church of Haverhill, 10 June 1753, and had children baptized there.  Later in life he became a Baptist, for his will mentions his pew in the Baptist Church at Haverhill.

He is reported as a private in Capt. Richard Ayer's Co., Col. Johnson's Regt., which marched on the alarm of 19 April 1775; "reported a deacon."  (Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in the Revolution, 14:116.)

He was listed in the 1790 census in Haverhill with one male under 16 (although his son Jonathan was actually 18) and two females.

The church record of his marriage calls him "Mr." and his bride "Mrs.", but this term of respect does not at that period imply that the bride was a widow.  A deed is cited, 15 May 1792, by which Jonathan Shepard of Haverhill conveyed land "formerly of my father Joseph Bond" (Essex County Land), which suggests that his bride was a Bond by birth and not a widow Graves.  (Jacobus did not have the Bible record available to him as cited earlier.)  There was, indeed, a Joseph Bond of Haverhill whose will, dated 7 Dec. 1724, named with other children a daughter Mary.  It is estimated, however, that this Mary Bond would have been too old to be mother of all the Shepard children.  Since a daughter of Jonathan gave a child the full name of Mary Graves, it seems probable that this was the maiden name of Jonathan's wife. Furthermore, if the land formerly belonging to Joseph Bond had been inherited by Jonathan's wife, she was then living and should have joined him in the deed.  It is suggested that the cited deed should be re-examined.

On 19 April 1754, Jonathan Shepard of Haverhill, blacksmith, and Solomon Kimball of Bradford, Mass., bought land in Hampstead, N.H., which they sold 1 Dec. 1758.  Also, on 12 Dec. 1759, Jonathan Shepard, Jr., of Haverhill, blacksmith, with the same Solomon Kimball, sold land in the 4th division of the original right laid out to Samuel Graves, dec'd.  (New Hampshire Land).

On 10 April 1792, Jonathan Shepard of Exeter, N.H., blacksmith, conveyed to James Shepard of Hampstead, N.H. (Deeds, Exeter, N.H.).

The will of Jonathan Shepard of Haverhill, yoeman, dated 16 Feb. 1793, proved 29 April 1793, named his wife Mary; son Jonathan; and daughters Polly Shepard and Mehitable Ayres; James Duncan, executor.  Duncan declined and administration was granted to James Shepard (Jonathan's brother) of Hampstead, N.H. (Essex Co. Probate).  (R‑27, R‑204)

Graves), Maine on 29 Nov. 1770.  Mary had previously married James Gooding on 6 Dec. 1753.  She died in 1797. Samuel Graves was in Capt. George Berry's Military Co. at Falmouth from 19 May 1746 to 19 Jan. 1747, was in the Louisburg Campaign of 1745, and was a selectman in Topsham in 1773.  He moved to Topsham, Me. about 1762, and was selectman there in 1773.  His son Jacob was appointed administrator of his estate on 29 June 1793.  (R‑10, R‑13, R‑201)

CHILDREN OF WILLIAM GRAVES (76) AND ELIZABETH BEAN

Joseph Graves (189) was born about 1728 in Falmouth, Me., was baptized in May 1730, died 11 June 1797 in Topsham, Me., and was buried in the Old Topsham Cem.  He married Jane Adams, sister of Joshua, Moses, and Benjamin Adams. They were both of Falmouth, Maine.  She was born 13 May 1733 at Newbury, Mass.  Their intentions were published 2 (or 5) Nov. 1754.  She was probably a daughter of Jacob Adams of Falmouth and Mary ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  Falmouth town records show Jacob Adams granted 40 acres of land and 1 acre of land for a house lot.  Other Falmouth town records show his children to be: Elizabeth, b. 4 July 1728; John, b. 28 June 1730; Mary, b. 5 July 1732.  Mary had published intentions of marriage to David Woodman on 22 Jan. 1748.

Samuel and Joseph, the oldest of the four Graves brothers, evidently moved to Topsham in 1758, as the deed transferring the 1000 acres of land they purchased was dated 16 March 1758.

The town of Topsham was incorporated in 1764, and Joseph was a selectman in 1770.  There is also a record that he was a member of the Church of Christ Congregational Church in Topsham.  (R‑13, R‑201)

Charles Johnson Graves (190), called Johnson, was born 8 (or 1) Feb. 1732 in Falmouth, Maine, was baptized 28 March 1732, and died 18 Jan. 1824 in Topsham, Me.  It is conjectured that he used the name Johnson because he didn't like the name Charles, thus explaining the apparent strangeness of naming one son John and another Johnson.  He first married Sarah Staples of Falmouth, sister of Stephen and Samuel Staples, on 10 Sept. 1757 in Falmouth, Me.  He secondly married Mrs. Susanna (Hobbs) Staples, widow of Stephen Staples, formerly of Falmouth. He went to Topsham, Me. about 1762 (or 23 June 1803). His first three children were apparently born in Falmouth, Me., and the last two were born in Topsham.

Johnson's cemetery stone, two miles north of Topsham on Route 24, has the name "Greaves" and date of death as Jan. 27, 1824, age 91 years, 11 months, 8 days.  He was a private in a Massachusetts unit (from Topsham) during the Rev. War, and those records indicate birthdate as 19 Aug. 1732 and death on 8 Jan. 1824.  Sarah Staples was a daughter of Samuel Staples II and Elizabeth.  Samuel II was granted land in Falmouth on 17 Aug. 1727, 6 Nov. 1727, and 15 March 1727/8.  Sarah was born 16 March 1736/7, and marriage intention pub. 10 Sept. 1757.  (R‑13, R‑201)

He secondly married Mrs. Rebecca (Sweetland) Thompson, daughter of John Sweetland and Elizabeth Grant, on 18 Jan. 1789 at Marblehead.  She had first married Jonathan Thompson on 30 June 1774.  She was born in 1753, was baptized 11 March 1753, and died 21 Jan. 1824, all in Marblehead.

John was a sailmaker by trade, and was in Naval Service in the Rev.

Francis Felton, 9 months service 1776."  Also, "Sailmaker, Brigantine 'Tyranicide', year 1777, Capt. Hainden."  He apparently also served as a tentmaker under Gen. Washington at the siege of Boston. He lived in Marblehead, Mass.  John, Mary, and Rebecca were all buried in Old Burial Hill, Marblehead.  (R‑9, R‑201)

State about 1823 to visit his son, Richard, who had migrated to Crawford Co., Pa. in 1818.  First settling near Meadville, John Adsit, 3rd, later moved near Linesville and in 1820 permanently settled two miles south of Conneaut Lake, Pa., where he and the generations to follow farmed, lumbered, and plied various building trades.  His death and burial in 1827 took place on this homestead, it being his choice that he be buried on a knoll north of the house.  This site became what has since been known as the Adsit Cemetery, where the greatest number of family burials have since been made, the land having been donated by Richard for this purpose.

John Adsit, 3rd, married Tamar Holdridge of Columbia Co., N.Y.  She died 6 March 1842 at the home of their son, John B. Adsit, in Clifton Park, Saratoga Co., N.Y. Her burial was the second to be made in the Methodist Episcopal Cem. in West Crescent, N.Y.  (R‑16, R‑202)

An old article says: "Phineas Graves in the spring of 1779 left South Hampton and struck out into the wilderness on foot with ax and gun, and camp equipage on a hand sled, and traveled to Tuftonboro where he made a clearing and built a log house.  The next year he married Hannah Brown of Epping.  Placing her on a horse, he traveled by her side with a load on his own back.  They journeyed to their future home where, leaving his young bride alone, the nearest neighbor being at Moultonboro 12 miles away, he took the horse back to Epping and returned to his little clearing, leading a cow, the marriage portion of his bride."

He was a Selectman and Representative of that town, a joiner, saw and grist mill owner, and a soldier in the Rev. Army.  His will was dated 8 Feb. 1816, probated 5 March 1816, and mentions most of the children listed below.  It is not certain in all cases which children are by the first marriage and which by the second.  (R‑5, R‑201)

It appears they did not have any children of their own, but did "take in" three children of others, two of whom were children of Stillman Yeomans, brother of Sarah Maria Yeomans.  Stillman Yeomans married Sarah Holloway of Conway, Mass., daughter of Josiah and Lydia Holloway, marriage intentions on 24 Oct. 1828.  She was born 22 Oct. 1809, and died of consumption 23 Feb. 1844 at the age of 34.  Their children were: Louisa M., b. 20 Nov. 1829; Elias T., b. 15 Feb. 1832; Johnathan, b. 14 July 1834; Addison G., b. 18 Dec. 1836; Clarissa, b. 23 Sept. 1839 (became known as Clara Amelia Graves); William N., b. 4 March 1843 (became known as William Norris Graves).

The children they raised may not have been legally adopted, since no adoption records have been found, but for practical purposes they are regarded as adopted.

Addison Graves was Selectman of Ashfield in 1854, 1855, and 1856.  He moved from Charlemont to the farm in Ashfield (owned by Mr. Chase in 1971).  He moved to Belchertown about 1862, based on the land records in Greenfield, Mass., selling the entire farm to Daniel Strong.

Heirs were wife, next of kin; Olive R. Hall, Ashfield, sister; Sally F. Howes, Ashfield, sister; children of Ebenezer, Ashfield, brother; and children of the daughter of his sister Eliza Allen.  Signed for by William N. Graves and Herman Moody in probate; Sarah M.

CHILDREN OF JOSEPH GRAVES (384) AND CYNTHIA A. WEST

Joseph Graves (759) was born 3 Jan. 1800 and died 19 April 1876, both in ME.  He married Anna (“Annie”) C. ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She was born about 1800 in ME.  She was in the 1850 census for Bangor, ME without him.  They were in the 1860 and 1870 censuses for Bangor, ME.  He was a gunsmith.  (R‑62)

Children - Graves

+1466.   Robert Stetson Graves, b.c. 1830, m. Flavilla M. ‑‑‑‑‑‑.

  1467.   Ellen M. Graves, b.c. 1835.  She was a school teacher in 1860.

 

Samuel Graves (760) was born in Topsham, ME.  He was a farmer.  He married Rebecca D. Young, daughter of Joseph Young (born in England) and Rachel Moore (b. 1774, NJ, d. 8 Jan. 1851, Swanville, ME).  Rebecca was born in Digby, Nova Scotia, died 13 Jan. 1852, and was buried in Mount Hope Cem., Bangor, ME.  She had a sister, Rachel A. Young, who was born 21 Aug. 1815 in Digby, Nova Scotia, died 30 March 1907 in Belfast, ME, and married James Young McClintock on 7 Aug. 1837 in Digby, NS.

Samuel and Rebecca apparently lived in Leeds, Androscoggin Co., ME, since all 4 of their children were born there.

There is a discrepancy involving Samuel’s name.  His death certificate shows his name as Joseph, but a certified letter from the town of Leeds and Maine State Archives both show it as Samuel.  Also, Joseph6 is credited with 4 children, the number that Samuel supposedly had.  Joseph lived in Bangor, ME, died while living with his brother, Joshua, in Wayne, ME, and was buried there.

The family of Joseph5 moved from Falmouth (next to Portland) to Topsham, where some of them continued to live.  Joshua6 moved to Wayne, ME (next to Leeds), and Nathaniel6 lived in Litchfield, ME (very near Leeds) before moving to Guilford, ME.  Also, 2 of the sons of Nathaniel married women named Young (not known whether they were related to Rebecca).  Many of the descendants moved to Bangor and vicinity.

It is very likely, based on circumstantial evidence, that Samuel Graves who married Rebecca Young was a son of Joseph5.  The DNA test results for a descendant provide strong confirmation of this.  To prove the connection, we need to learn more about Joseph6 and Samuel6, including their ages and the interactions between the family members.  Censuses, land records, wills, probate records, and other records need to be searched.  (R‑58, R‑59)

"Mr. Joshua Lewis Graves, whose death occurred at his late residence, 16 Village St., on Wednesday morning was 77 years old.  He was a sailmaker by trade, but some fifty years ago was associated with his brother-in-law, the late Nathaniel B. Lindsey, in the baking business in the Graves house at the foot of Orne St., and afterwards carried the business on alone.  Subsequently, he became a shoemaker working 'on the seat' and in various manufacturies.  About 1880, he engaged in the provision business on Washington St. near Porter's Stables, where he did a good business for several years.  After that he engaged in a small way in shoe manufacturing.  About four years ago, he opened a grocery store in the house owned by Mr. William J. Goldthwait, on Pleasant St., near its southern junction with Washington St., but this was hardly a success.  For many months past his health has been giving way.  Two sons survive him.  Walter R. Graves, who is married and lives in Lynn, and Herbert L. Graves of this town.

Funeral services were held at his late residence this afternoon.  Mr. Graves was the brother of the late Philip Edmund Graves, and of Mr. Eleazer Graves, who survives."  (R‑9, R‑201)

"Eleazer Graves Sr., a very old and highly respected citizen of Marblehead, passed away Sunday at the Odd Fellows Home in Worcester where he had been for a number of months.  Until a short time ago he appeared to be enjoying his usual good health, and his death comes like a shock to his friends.  Mr. Graves was a native of Marblehead, and had always lived here, being a sailmaker for many years.  He and his brother, Philip, carried this industry in a loft on Front St., and when this was a great port for fishing boats, did an extensive business. He was 93 years old and was one of the oldest members of Atlantic Lodge IOOF, both in membership and in years. Two sons, Eleazer Graves Jr. and Richard H. Graves, both of Marblehead, are his only immediate survivors.  His funeral was held at the parlor of the Odd Fellows on Wednesday afternoon."

Another obituary appeared in the Marblehead Messenger for 13 Jan. 1877.

"SAD BEREAVEMENT - Two children of Mr. and Mrs. Eleazer Graves, little boys, respectively two and eight years of ages, died this week of diphtheria.  Some few years ago the family lost two little girls with the same terrible disease.  They have the sympathy of the whole community in this second bereavement.  The sons were Eleazer, age 8-1-16, John C., age 2-4-20."

In an 1883 land valuation for Marblehead, Eleazer Graves, Sr. owned a house on Sewall St. valued at $600, and 1500 ft. of house land valued at $100.  His taxes were $13.34.  (R‑9, R‑201)

The tradition in this branch of the family is that Mary Ann was descended from a Baron Greaves of England.  (That probably would have been Admiral Thomas Graves who was elevated to the English peerage in 1795, and was probably descended from the family of Yorkshire and Mickleton Manor, Gloucestershire, England.  The descent could not have been from him, since Samuel Graves settled in Lynn, MA in 1630, but the immigrant Samuel Graves may be descended from the ancestors of this Baron Greaves.)

The Stanwoods were from Stainwood, England.  The Fishes were from Wales via Scotland and England to Lynn, MA.  The Shumways (Chamois) were Huguenots from France.  The Shumway descent of Rev. Elijah Shumway Fish was: (1) Peter Shumway, b. 10 April 1635, d. 1695, m. Frances ‑‑‑‑‑‑, settled in Oxford, MA; (2) Peter Shumway, b. 6 June 1678, d. 1751, m.

Attended the Bunker Hill Church this A.M.  Walked over to East Boston this noon and went to meeting there this P.M. and took supper at Uncle Hiram's.  Walked back to Charlestown tonight.

CHILDREN OF WATSON GRAVES (540) AND FANNY D. WILSON

Lorenzo S. Graves (1075) was born 18 July 1831 in Southboro, Mass.  He married Eliza G. Coffin, daughter of Capt. Moses Coffin of Nantucket, Mass., on 31 March 1852. He moved to Rochester, N.Y. and carried on a very large business in manufacturing elevators.

The following biography is taken from the History of Rochester and Monroe Co., NY, by William Farley Peck, p. 536, and is available as a Google free book.

“Lorenzo S. Graves, who is now numbered among the honored dead and who for many years was a leading manufacturer and one of the most prominent residents of Rochester, came to this city in 1859. He was afterward connected with several of the leading productive industries here and finally became one of the large stockholders of the Otis Elevator Company, with which business he was associated throughout his remaining days. He achieved such a goodly measure of success that his methods are of interest to the commercial world and in an analyzation of his life work it will be found that he based his business principles and actions upon the rules which govern industry and strict, unswerving integrity.

A native of' Massachusetts, Mr. Graves was born in Southboro, July 18, 1831, his parents being Watson and Fanny (Dench) Graves, the latter a descendant of old Revolutionary stock. The father was born and reared in Southboro, Massachusetts, and while a young man he learned the boot and shoemaker's trade, following the same at Southboro during the early part of his life. He then removed to Ashland, Massachusetts, where he lived retired during his later years. His widow afterward made her home with her son and while visiting her daughter in Newark Valley she passed away.

In taking up the personal history of Lorenzo S. Graves we present to our readers the record of one who for many years figured prominently in connection with the industrial development of the city. He acquired his preliminary education in the public schools of Ashland, Massachusetts, and completed his studies in the school at Amherst, Massachusetts. He was living in Worcester, that state, at the time of his marriage to Miss Eliza G. Coffin, an old schoolmate. Her father, Captain Moses Coffin, of Nantucket, Massachusetts, was a blacksmith and cooper by trade but followed the sea for many years. After leaving the sea he settled in Wilmantic, Connecticut, where he was employed in the first paper mill in that state. Subsequently he removed to Ashland, Massachusetts, where he resided until 1851, when he became a resident of Springfield, Vermont, where both he and his wife passed away. Their daughter Eliza became the wife of Lorenzo S. Graves and unto this marriage was born one son, Fred B., who married Frances Oswald and resides at No. 5 Lorimer street, Rochester. He is now superintendent and manager of the Otis Elevator Company and is mentioned elsewhere in this volume. Mr. and Mrs. Graves also reared an adopted daughter, Ida L., who is now the wife of Charles H. Chase, a nurseryman residing at No. 76 Richmond street.

In early manhood Lorenzo S. Graves learned the shoemaker's trade with his father, making as high as twelve pairs of boots per day, so expert had he become at hand labor. Upon his removal to Rochester in 1859 he began working as a shoemaker in the employ of a Mr. Churchill. After a brief period, however, he turned his attention to teaming and a little later, in 1860, he gave to the world as the result of his inventive genius and study the Graves sole cutter, a machine for cutting leather soles. He then began the manufacture of the same, his factory being located on Mill street. He also engaged in the manufacture of paper cutters and shoe machinery and was very successful in both lines, continuing the business for a number of years and winning a creditable place as a substantial representative of commercial interests here. At length he decided to engage in the manufacture of elevators and the Graves Elevator Company was formed, and the present large factory now operated under the name of the Otis Elevator Company was erected at Nos. 198 to 210 Commercial street. From the beginning the enterprise grew rapidly until several hundred men were employed on the construction of all kinds of passenger and freight elevators which were shipped to every section of the country. This became one of the largest productive industries of the city. It was developed along progressive, modern business lines, not only meeting but anticipating the needs of the trade in this direction, and Mr. Graves continued at the head of the concern until 1901, when he sold his interest to the Otis Company, at which time the firm name was changed to the Otis Elevator Company, of which the son is now superintendent and manager. The father then retired to private life. He was always a busy man and in his earlier years his evenings were devoted to study and investigation, especially along architectural lines. His experiments resulted in inventions which gained for him a prominent place in the business world. He certainly deserved much credit for what he accomplished and justly earned the proud American title of a self-made man, for he had a capital of but a few dollars when he and his wife arrived in Rochester. The years passed and his industry and ability made him one of the well-to-do citizens. His success may be ascribed to his positive, determined pursuit of business and to the fact that he was a man of unflinching commercial integrity.

After retiring from the field of manufacture Mr. Graves, accompanied by his wife, traveled quite extensively, visiting many points of interest in this country and also making three trips to Europe. They likewise visited the holy land and various sections of Asia. Mr. Graves was always deeply interested in historic research and during their travels he and his wife gathered many interesting relics of all kinds in various parts of the world, Mrs. Graves now having in her home two large, fine cabinets well filled with shells, stones and other interesting relics of their trips.

In his political views Mr. Graves was a stalwart republican who took much interest in the party and its growth. He was frequently solicited by his friends to become a candidate for office but always refused. He built a large and beautiful residence at No. 257 Lake avenue, where his widow yet resides. There in the spring of 1903 he became ill and his death occurred on the 21st of April 1905.

Mrs. Graves belongs to the Central Presbyterian church. Theirs was a most congenial married life and the very close companionship made the death of the husband an almost unbearable blow to Mrs. Graves. His loss was also deeply felt throughout the city where he had resided for more than forty-five years—honored as one of its leading businessmen and prominent citizens. He was one of the ablest and best known manufacturers of Rochester, was genial in manner and, though his time was largely occupied by the details of extensive business interests, he always found time to devote to those of his friends whose calls were purely of a social character. He was a thorough exemplification of the typical American businessman and gentleman.”  (R‑201)

CHILDREN OF LAVINA COLLINS (573) AND CHARLES WILLSON

Horace Willson (1146) was born 18 Feb. 1822 in Swanzey, N.H., and died 1 June 1886 in Gilroy, Calif.  He married Eunice Eliza Chickering on 2 Feb. 1846.  She died 3 July 1910 in Gilroy, Calif.  Their first three children were born in Swanzey, and the others in Gilroy.

"Distinguished from all other classes of men whose courage and daring appeal to the gratitude and admiration of the world are the pioneers who left comfortable homes in the eastern part of the United States and risked their all on the findings at the end of a journey appalling in its distances, and terrifying from the standpoint of danger and deprivation.  Courage of this kind is the foundation of the civilization of the west, and its continuance to success after arriving at the goal of his ambition, makes the pioneer and upbuilder of the west a man of more than historical moment.  Such a one was Horace Willson, to whom the green hills of New Hampshire presented limitations, and who sought a larger outlook upon the Pacific washed coast in 1853.  Born in Swanzey, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire, February 18, 1822, he was reared on a small farm sloping toward the hills, and where his parents, Charles and Lavina (Collins) Willson, had lived since the beginning of their married life.  His father was a brick mason by trade, combining that with farming, and the son naturally followed in his footsteps, profiting by his knowledge and becoming a master workman.

Mr. Willson's trade took him to different parts of the east, and while pursuing it in Keene, Cheshire Co., N.H., he met and married May 2, 1846, Eunice Eliza Chickering, a native of Westmoreland, N.H., and who was born March 30, 1828.  The Chickerings were also early residents of New Hampshire, Alvin Chickering having been engaged there in buying and selling and shipping cattle for many years. He married Eunice Gleason, whose ancestors had engaged in agriculture for generations in New Hampshire, and who bore him a large family of children, who like Mrs. Willson, were educated in the public schools and reared in a typical New England home.

Seven years after his marriage, in 1853, Mr. Willson came to California by way of Panama, and after getting a start by working at his trade purchased 49 acres of land in Old Gilroy in Santa Clara Co.  Industrious and frugal, he not only made but saved money, and owned a large ranch at Paicines, San Benito Co., Cal., which was subsequently sold.  He afterward bought 1180 acres of land east of Gilroy, and not far from Hot Springs.  From a small beginning he branched out into an extensive cattle business, understanding well his occupation, and becoming known as one of the principal stock men of his neighborhood.  During his entire life in the west he made his home in Old Gilroy, where his death occurred June 1, 1886, and where he was buried in the little churchyard adjoining the town.

He found time while immersed in the cares of his ranch to identify himself with politics and general affairs, was a staunch promoter of schools and public institutions, and an ardent worker in the Presbyterian Church.  During the war he was a strong sympathizer with the Union, and lent his influence to further the cause.  The Republican Party always claimed his vote and support, although he was averse to assuming official responsibility.

Since her husband's death, Mrs. Willson has disposed of his ranch, and in 1899 built a beautiful 2-1/2 story house in Gilroy, which she has surrounded with flowers and shrubs, and made comfortable and home-like.  She has nobly performed her mission as one of the pioneer women of the west, assisting her husband in his upward struggle, and rearing a family of five sons and five daughters, of whom two sons and five daughters are living.  In the order of their birth the children were: Charles, deceased; Dan, who died at the age of eight years; Frank, deceased; Edwin, living in Old Gilroy; Lyman, occupying the home place; Mrs. Amanda Cochran, of San Jose, Cal.; Mrs. Ida McKinney, an educator, and for 5 years principal of the Old Gilroy school; Mrs. Lucy Reavis, wife of T. C. Reavis, a merchant of Salinas, Cal.; Mrs. Luly Onyon, wife of John Onyon, a railroad man with headquarters at San Francisco; and Mary, the wife of Charles Eckhart, ticket agent of Redwood City, Cal.

Mr. Willson was a highly respected member of the community, his judgement and success making him an important factor in its upbuilding life.  His word and opinion had a high value with all who appreciated integrity and honor in a man, and his children and friends looked up to him as the personification of kindliness, good nature and loyalty."  (R‑14)

Dorson Willson (1147) was born 23 July 1824 in Swanzey, N.H., and died 27 Jan. 1902 in Gilroy, Calif.  He married Mrs. Mary (Mathew) Rhodes on 8 June 1854 in Gilroy.  She had a child by her previous marriage: Sarah Josephine Rhodes, b. 15 Nov. 1852, Carroll Co., Mo., m. Michael Cavanaugh; had 2 children.  All the children of Dorson and Mary were born in Gilroy.

The following collection of articles is from Mr. Cecil H. Grider.

"Oct. 12, 1899, 50 YEARS IN CALIFORNIA

Mr. Dorson Willson of San Ysidro and Mr. Dan Willson of San Juan are celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of their landing in California.

They left Boston, Mass. on board the bark Emma Isadora, a Mediterranean fruiter, on March 31, 1849. They were 49 days in making Rio de Janeiro, 49 from there around the Horn to Valparaiso, and 66 days from the latter place to San Francisco.  Arriving there, they took their boat up to Stockton, sold it, and dissolved the partnership which had included seventy persons.

The Mess'rs. Willson went to Mariposa and Sonora and returned in July 1850 to San Francisco, sailed on a French sloop to Alviso, and walked across to Santa Clara.

Dorson Willson at that time built a small brick school house at Santa Clara, which stood for many years.  He also prepared timbers in the Redwoods and built a small house on San Fernando St. between First and Market, back of the Catholic Church.  The College now stands on that ground.

Mess'rs. Willson came to Gilroy in Jan. 1851, being first attracted here by the vast number of wild geese which they were very fond of hunting."

 

"Dorson Willson left the following interesting written statement.

'I was born in Swanzey, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire, 23 July 1824.  I lived there until I was 17.  Then I learned the brick mason trade that I worked at until I and my brother Dan left for California.

We sailed in the bark Emma Isadora the last day of March 1849 via Cape Horn with a company of seventy.  We owned the ship and cargo, Captain McHenery in charge. The voyage was quite exciting to us young boys.

We arrived in San Francisco, Sept. 12, 1849.  Stayed in that city about a week, and then took our ship up to Stockton, where we sold the vessel, divided up according to shares of ownership, and dissolved the partnership.

We all struck out for the mines.  Brother Dan and I and some of the company started to the Mariposa Mines. Reached there in eight days by mule pack train, footing it all the way, 150 miles.  We paid 25 cents a pound for our freight.  I mined there until May 1850, then went down the Merced and San Joaquin Rivers in a small boat to Stockton.  I then in company with two brothers by the name of Bradford bought a lot of groceries and hired an ox team and started for the so-called Camp Sonora 60 miles distant.  I stayed there until July 4, then started for San Francisco on a French Sloop.  Landed at Alviso, walked to Santa Clara and then to Pueblo San Jose.  I worked at my trade through the winter.  San Jose was a very small town.  I built a small brick school house in Santa Clara.  It may be standing there yet.

I got timber in what was called Jones' Redwood, and built me a small house in San Jose.  The winters of 50 and 51 were very dry.  January 1851 I was attracted to old Gilroy by the great numbers of wild geese which I was fond of hunting.  There were very few Americans here. All were Spanish and Indians.  No business was done except in the raising of stock and trading with the Spaniards.'"

 

"Jan. 27, 1902, PIONEER AT REST Dorson Willson, a unique figure in the early days of California, passes away.

By the death of Dorson Willson which occurred at his old Gilroy home Monday evening, California loses another one of her fast disappearing pioneers.  A unique character who has figured in the history of Santa Clara County since the winter of 1851.

Dorson Willson was a typical 49er, taking great delight in recounting  his early experiences, which were always interesting.  He married here in early days and reared a large family.  He was of rather an eccentric nature, having set ideas.  One of his whims being that no flowers should bedeck his grave, with the exception of a floral piece in the form of a trowel, his loved instrument of labor, with which he earned his living. For, since reverses came, he has plied his trade as brick mason for many years.  His last work being done only last year on the home of his daughter at Soquel....

He brought some money from the mines and invested it in stock and prospered.  It was on his lonesome journey from the mines that an incident occurred which he was fond of relating.  Lawlessness was supreme and murders were committed daily.  Men were waylaid and robbed, and it was unsafe to travel alone.  He was muleback and alone, and carried quite a sum of money with him.  He tethered his mule, built a campfire, suppered, and retired in a clump of underbrush for the night.  In the darkness of the morning he was aroused by unseemly noises and the crackling of the brush about him.  Grabbing his gun, he arose from his bed of bark and fern and was just about to fire when the long ears of his mule wagged a warning from an opening in the bushes.  The faithful animal had broken loose and was searching for his master.

Mr. Willson married Mrs. Mary Rhodes in 1855.  She had previously crossed the plains with a party and settled in San Ysidro.  Her husband being drowned while attempting to ford a stream when they were coming out.  She had one child who is now the wife of Constable Jack White of this city.  The couple prospered, Mr. Willson acquiring land and cattle and successfully trading with the Spaniards. A relic of these early transactions is an old iron kettle weighing 1830 pounds, now on the Willson premises at San Ysidro and used for a watering trough during the dry year of 1864 when stockmen were compelled to kill their cattle.  Mr. Willson cooked and fed 1000 head to his hogs, using the old iron caldron to cook the meat in. From that date he gave up the cattle business and has ever since worked at his trade.

The fruit of his union with Mrs. Rhodes is eight children.  Six daughters and two sons.  Oscar and William, Mrs. Fidelia White, Mrs. Mary Dexter, Mrs. Mattie Rife and Mrs. Hattie Peck, all of San Ysidro. Mrs. Ella Brown of Rucker, and Mrs. Annie Sawyer of Soquel.  All married and with families except William Willson.

Mr. Willson survived his wife by six years.  He has two brothers and two sisters surviving him: Dan Willson of San Juan, Albert Willson of San Felipe, Mrs. Eames of Chico, and Mrs. Carlon Aldrich of Illinois.  Mr. Willson was sick but two days.  He was 77 years and six months old.  He had simply lived out his life.  He leaves 19 acres of rich land in San Ysidro valued at perhaps $300 per acre.  It is said that he had papers drawn up distributing the estate, but had failed to sign them, and that now the property will have to go through the courts.

Last year when the Pioneers met in San Jose, Mr. Willson had the pleasure of greeting two of the men who came around the horn with him.  One of them is now living in the Garden City.

The funeral services were held at one o'clock today at the family residence.  Internment being made in the Masonic and Odd Fellows Cemetery."

 

"Gilroy, Saturday, Feb. 1, 1902, PASSING OF A PIONEER .... A train of carriages a mile in length followed the hearse carrying his body to the grave.  Rev. Irons of the Methodist Church and the church choir contributed prayers, readings and hymns at the home and the graveside.  And six veteran friends of the deceased served as pallbearers, namely: H. D. VanSchaiek, James Phegley, A. Gilman, Richard Taylor, J. W. Thomasson and Joseph Rice.  Many mourners were grouped around the burial lot, children, grandchildren, brothers and others who felt the sadness all feel in paying the last respects to an old friend...."  (R‑14)

Daniel Willson (1148) was born 22 Jan. 1827 in Swanzey, N.H., and died 17 April 1906 in San Juan, Calif.  He first married Vincenta Sanchez, daughter of Don Jose Maria Sanchez and Maria Ortega of San Juan Bautista, Calif., on 24 March 1854.  He secondly married Malvina Weston Smith on 13 July 1868 in Santa Cruz, Calif.  All his children were born in San Juan, Calif.

"One evening in 1852, Dan Willson stopped on the road just south of the Sanchez Hacienda to make camp on the banks of the Pajaro River.  Don Sanchez rode out and insisted that no one stopped on his ranch but guests, and invited Willson to the Hacienda.

This was the beginning of Willson's relationship with the Sanchez family.  During the rest of that year and all of the next, Willson was employed on the estate at the Llamo do Tesqueaquita or the Soap Ranch.

After the death of Sanchez, his wife Chona instructed Willson to carry on the soap making trade with the Yankee Clipper at Monterey and to make an accounting when he had money matters with the estate.  This he did very well.

Chona's second and third husbands, Golden and Dr. Sanford, did not interfere with this part of the estate's operation.

It seems that Willson did not become involved with events that were building up, but instead kept to the business at hand.

On March 24, 1854, Dan Willson and fifteen year old Vincenta Sanchez, the oldest Sanchez daughter, were married.  There followed a series of court proceedings involving the newlywed couple regarding the guardianship of Vincenta.

A change in venue from Monterey to Stockton succeeded in deciding Willson to be the guardian of his wife.

This was a happy marriage for twelve years, and they became the parents of six children.  They were divorced in July of 1866."  (R‑14)

Albert Willson (1149) was born 10 March 1829 in Keene, N.H., and died 15 Sept. 1904 in Gilroy, Calif.  He married Eliza Jane Hildebrandt on 12 March 1856.  All their children were born in Gilroy, Calif.

"In the death of Albert Willson, which occurred Sept. 15, 1904, Santa Clara Co. lost one of her early pioneers. For nearly a century he had made his home on a farm about nine miles south of Gilroy, where he engaged in general farming and dairying.  Inheriting in a marked degree the habits of industry, frugality, and thrift characteristic of his New England ancestors, he lent material aid in developing the agricultural interests of this part of the state, and by wisely directed toil cleared and improved a fine homestead.  A son of Charles Willson, he was born March 10, 1829, in Keene, Cheshire Co., N.H....

The fifth child and youngest son of a family consisting of five sons and two daughters, Albert Willson acquired the rudiments of his education in the district schools, completing his studies in the academy in West Brattleboro, Vt.  Subsequently, in Randolph, Mass., he learned the brick mason's trade with his brother, Hiram, with whom he lived three years.  Mr. Willson started by way of the Isthmus of Panama for California, sailing from New York Jan. 9, 1852, and arriving in San Francisco Feb. 15, having walked across the Isthmus.  He was accompanied by five companions on this eventful journey, and of these he is the sole survivor.  The first month after coming to the coast, Mr. Willson worked on the canal at Robinson Ferry, after which he lived for four years at Shaw's Flat.

March 13, 1856, the day after his marriage, he came with his bride to Santa Clara Co., locating on the Soap Ranch, now known as the San Felipe district.  The following year he moved to an adjoining ranch, renting the homestead property, upon which he made his home at the time of his death.  Laboring with that earnestness of purpose and persistency that is bound to win success, he accumulated money, and in 1867 purchased the land on which he had been living, becoming the owner of 500 acres of land.  He later bought adjoining land, and in all owned a valuable farm of 617 acres, which in its improvements and appointments was among the best in that section of the county.  In 1888 Mr. Willson bought 160 acres of land in Fresno Co., near Del Rey, and was there engaged in raising alfalfa, fruit and grapes until 1903, when he returned to the old homestead, located on the Pacheco Pass Road, nine miles from Gilroy, as above stated.  He made a specialty of dairying, keeping about one hundred head of cattle, and having a fine cheese factory in which he manufactured full cream cheese.

At Shaw's Flat, March 12, 1856, Mr. Willson married Eliza Jane Hildebrandt, who was born in Mount Auburn, Shelby Co., Indiana.  Her father, A. W. Hildebrandt, a native of Ohio, moved first to Indiana, from there going with his family to Iowa.  Crossing the plains to California in 1853, he located at Shaw's Flat as a miner. From there he went to Soap Ranch, where he embarked in farming and stock-raising, and was afterward similarly employed in the Pajaro valley.  He subsequently moved to Gilroy, where he lived retired from active pursuits until his death in 1898.

Mr. and Mrs. Willson became the parents of three children, namely: Carlon R., who superintends his farming interests; Frederick Warren, a farmer living near the old homestead; and Charles S.  Politically, Mr. Willson was a loyal adherent of the Republican party, and for many years rendered excellent service as a school director. In 1872 Mr. and Mrs. Willson made a trip to New England, visiting friends and relatives in New Hampshire and other states.  In 1900 Mr. Willson made a trip along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, again visiting his old home in New England, being away from home six months and having a most enjoyable time."  (R‑14)

On March 10, 1853, Darwin was at Oahu, Sandwich Islands (later Hawaiian Islands).  He was 5 ft. 7 in. tall and weighed 145 pounds.  In Oct. 1853 a letter was received from him at Honolulu telling about the rough life of a whaler.

Jan. 22, 1854, Darwin had arrived back in the States and was at Fort DeMoines working.  March 23, 1856 he was in Fort Disiblernes, Mich.  He must have come home in 1856, although there is no mention of Addison seeing him in Boston or Portland, Maine.  After that there is no further trace of him.  (R‑7)

William Wallace Hebbard (or Hibbard) (1250) was born 9 March 1824 (or 1823) in Lisbon, Me., and died 9 Dec. 1889 in Nashua, N.H.  He married Martha S. Benjamin, daughter of Dr. Daniel Benjamin of North Granby, Conn.  She died in 1856.  Most of what follows is from the Nashua Telegraph, 10 Dec. 1889.  Doctor Hebbard was a self-made man in all that the word implies.  His father was a lumberman with a large family, and this son supported himself by manual labor from the time he was six years old, buying his time of his father at the age of twelve.  At this time he bought and sold logs on his own account, earning sufficient to get some primary schooling.  He improved every opportunity for study, and in a few years he was a teacher of penmanship and several branches in general education.  At the age of eighteen he studied for the ministry, and shortly after was licensed as a preacher.  At the time of his marriage his wife's father suggested that he could not get a living in the ministry and that he study medicine, a suggestion which he acted upon and was graduated from the Medical School of Harvard College.  He practiced for a time in Fall River, Mass. and later at Waltham, Mass., where he remained until 1854, during those years preaching occasionally.  He was a born orator, a fervent religionist, an ardent temperance man, known widely as a literary man who did a large amount of work in both prose and poetry.  He was, perhaps, most widely known by his lectures on Physiology and Health, which he delivered in all of the New England and middle states, and in other states as far west as the Mississippi River.  They were highly commended by the leading educators of this country.  The estimate in which he was held by leading men of the time is abundantly shown by autograph letters found among his effects, from such men as Edward Everett, Wendell Phillips, William Lloyd Garrison, Henry Ward Beecher, T. DeWitt Talmage, William Cullen Bryant, H. W. Longfellow, James G. Blaine, and others of equal fame.  (R‑200)

Jeremiah Hibbert Richardson (1317) was born 16 Sept. 1814 in Cornish, Maine, died 3 March 1897 near Blunt, S.D., and was buried there.

He moved with his parents in 1822 to the village of New London in the township of Verona on Wood Creek in Oneida Co., N.Y.  At the age of 11 he was left motherless and the next year he started driving tow horses on the Erie Canal.  Family tradition says he later owned his own boat.  In 1846 when he was slightly over 30 years of age, he sold it and with all his possessions including his father's Bible in a carpet bag, he made his way to Iowa to take up a donation land claim.  He probably worked his way on a boat on the Great Lakes to Chicago, and family tradition says he walked the rest of the way to Iowa.  He later took up a homestead near Blunt, South Dakota.

He married Catherine Alvirah Lanning, called Alvirah, on 23 Jan. 1848, her 19th birthday.  They were the first couple married in Honey Creek Township, Iowa.  She was born 23 Jan. 1829 in Jackson Co., Ind., died 4 Sept. 1914, and was buried in the Koszta, Iowa cem.  She was a charter member of the Koszta Methodist Church and remained a member of the same church until her death.

They lived in Iowa until 1884, when they moved to South Dakota.  After the death of her husband in 1897, Alvirah made her home with her daughter in Oxford, Ohio.  She was blind for the last 10 years.  All their children were born in Honey Creek Twp., Iowa.  (R‑207)

Wilson Graves (1334) was born 25 May 1810 in Corinth, Washington Co., N.Y. (although the 1850 and 1870 census records of Champlain, N.Y. give Vt. as his birth place), and died 31 March 1892 in Champlain, Clinton Co., N.Y. He married Amarilla Darby on 1 Aug. 1840 in Alburg, Grand Isle Co., Vt.  She was born 12 Aug. 1815 in Alburg, Vt., and died 23 Sept. 1881 in Champlain, Clinton Co., N.Y. Wilson, his wife, son Ransom and daughter-in-law, and 3 grandchildren were all buried in the village cemetery in Champlain, N.Y.

Amarilla was a daughter of George Darby (born 28 May 1792 in Halfmoon, Saratoga Co., N.Y., died 2 July 1862 in Alburg, Vt., soldier in the War of 1812) and his wife Rebecca Steenberge (born 6 June 1797 in Halfmoon, died 11 April 1882 in Alburg, Vt.).  Both her parents were buried in the Bush Cem. very near the Graves children that are buried there.

Wilson and Amarilla lived in Champlain.  Their first 3 children were born in Alburg, Vt., and the last one in Champlain, N.Y.

Mr. Darby G. Livingston has looked at the names of all the children of Wilson and Amarilla, and believes they are Darby names rather than Graves family names, with perhaps one exception.  The Gilman name was not associated with the Darby family, but was closely identified with the Graves family.  (R‑32, R‑201)
