THOMAS GRAVES

 

1645 Settler of Hartford, Connecticut and

Hatfield, Massachusetts

and His Descendants

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Thomas Graves (1) was born before 1585 in England, and died Nov. 1662.  He married Sarah ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She died about four years after he did.

[According to Mrs. Ruth E. Richardson, Mrs. Clara M. Turner, and other sources (although not verified by this author), Thomas was from Gravesend, Kent Co., England, and came to America with Gov. Endicott's Company.  He was a member of the Council, on the committee to lay out the town of Woburn, Mass., and one of the first town officers there.  His wife's name was Sarah Whiting, and she, 5 children and 2 servants came with him and settled in New Haven, Conn. first, then Hartford.  He was one of the founders of Hadley, Mass. in 1645.  They came to America on the George Bonaventure which arrived in Salem, Mass. in 1629.  Sarah died 17 Dec. 1666.[1]]

The first official record of the family in this country was at Hartford, Conn. in 1645, when the family was located there.  Thomas owned three separate pieces of real estate there, one described as being the one "whereon his house standeth."  Isaac also took up his residence in Hartford and had land there.  John took up his residence in Wethersfield, the adjoining town, and it is probable that the three homes were not far apart.  The lands granted to John in 1652 were described as those "whereon his house standeth."  Nathaniel also settled in Wethersfield, where he married in 1655.

The family remained together as far as it is known until the removal to Hatfield, Mass.  The son Samuel never married, and probably did not live to accompany the rest at the time of removal.  The family to which Nathaniel's wife belonged lived near him and were largely interested in lands there, and for the sake of remaining near his wife's relations, Nathaniel did not move with the rest of the family to Hatfield.

The family at Hartford and Wethersfield occupied a prominent position and took active part in political and religious matters.  They served on juries, acted as surveyors and fence viewers, ran boundary lines between towns, and generally filled those places that stalwart, intelligent and respected citizens usually are called upon to fill.  The exception was that Thomas was exempted from "training, watching, and warding" because he was over sixty, which was the age limit for that kind of service.

From all that can be learned, the family was prospering at Hartford as well as any family could in a new country.  There must have been some strong reason that would induce them to give up their lands and houses and enter upon a new life in an undeveloped country and suffer the hardships incident to the undertaking, and we find it in the strong religious convictions that impelled the early settlers in this country.

A schism had arisen in the church at Hartford and Wethersfield, and the dissenters from the views entertained by the majority concluded to break away from their homes and found a settlement where their views would prevail.

We find it extremely difficult to express our appreciation of the characteristics of the noble old head of this family, Thomas Graves.  His modesty, together with the lapse of time, prevents us from mentioning many things about his daily life that make biography so entertaining.  We are therefore compelled to speak of and delineate those qualities of heart and mind that become apparent to us from the standpoint of his well-known ideas upon religious matters, in fact his close adherence to what we now too often stigmatize as puritanism.  It, however, hardly becomes us of the present to criticize too closely the views entertained by that noble band of men who held so lovingly to their theories that no conditions or inducements would make them swerve from their conscientious views of the requirements of duty. It was really tantamount to an express "thus saith the Lord" to them, for this was in many instances the cause of their leaving their homes and personal friends in England, and coming to our land that they might enjoy that freedom to worship God in what they deemed the only true way.  And so when we find schismatic views of church polity were being advocated, that they deemed destructive to the church of God, we find them again ready to leave their pleasant surroundings in Hartford and seek new homes away on the frontier of civilized life.

Perhaps we shall be excused if we here state briefly the cause of the removal to Hatfield, Mass.  A practice had grown up in the churches of allowing persons who had been baptized, if not of a "scandalous character," to consent to the covenant, and this permitted them to have the sacrament of baptism administered to their infant children.  On this question hot discussions were held, as well as on some others of minor importance.  It was upon this division of sentiment that our ancestors determined to move to Hatfield, animated by what they supposed was their bounden duty.  Yet we cannot but be satisfied that these pioneers knew that in their new undertaking they were to enter upon pleasant places.  They selected the beautiful and fertile lands of the valley of the Connecticut for their new home, which have more than fulfilled the most ardent expectations of the settlers.

But notwithstanding the advanced age of Thomas Graves, we find him a promoter and organizer in this new country. They left their houses and lands in Hartford and Wethersfield unsold, and uniting themselves in a band of daring emigrants, started for their new home with wives and children.  Their household effects were loaded on carts drawn by oxen, and they took with them their domestic animals.  The determined cavalcade started out for their new homes.  It was not far from the middle of September 1661.  The journey, of not over fifty miles, occupied about ten days.  Creeks and brooks had to be crossed, swamps and morasses had to be avoided or crossed as best they could be.  They reached their destination about the first of October 1661.

Exposed to all the dangers incident to a frontier settlement, amid the habitations of wild beasts and wilder men, the Indians, who lived in their immediate vicinity, and had a fort and village only about two miles from where the settlement was made.  Foremost among these hardy emigrants were Thomas Graves, with his aged wife, and his two stalwart sons, Isaac and John, with their wives and families of five children each.  And now we find them without a house or place to lay their heads and winter approaching rapidly.  They at once set to work to provide homes for their families and barns for their animals.  There were no saw mills to manufacture the lumber, and the only method of sawing planks or boards was by making a pit, and by using the cross-cut saw, with one man on the top of the log, and one man in the pit. In this way a few boards were made that would serve for tables and doors.  The logs were speedily shaped into convenient homes for the accomodation of these brave people.

Thomas Graves was now an aged yet honored member of this community, and from this time forward lived with the family of his son Isaac.  He was then past his 76th birthday.  He remained, with his wife, in Isaac's family until his death in November 1662, a little more than a year from the time of their moving to their new home.

It is very probable that a few of these settlers at Hatfield had located there before the general removal.  A committee had been appointed Jan. 1, 1661, to lay out house lots in Hatfield, and it appears that Richard Fellows was there early in 1661.  It is quite probable that each engager knew the number of his house lot. Thomas Graves was not assigned any lands, but was counted in with Isaac, his oldest son, whose estate was thus increased to 150 pounds, while his brother John's was voted at 100 pounds.  This did not affect the size or location of their respective house lots, as they were contiguous, but did in the division of common lands. After the death of Thomas Graves, his son Isaac administered upon his estate in Massachusetts, while his son Nathaniel performed the same service upon his estate in Connecticut.  His wife, Sarah, survived him for four years, and Isaac administered upon her estate.  A very curious inventory of her effects is spread upon the probate records at Northampton.  Views of the lots on which Thomas and his son Isaac located their house in Hatfield and the lot on which John placed his new home there, together with general views of the beautiful village of Hatfield, which the settlers had shown so much wisdom in selecting, appeared as illustrations in the 1896 book by John Card Graves (R‑200).

All the children of Thomas were born in England, and were all of mature age when they came to this country, the youngest of the sons being about 16 years old.  There may only have been one daughter, rather than the two listed below.  (R‑200, R‑206)

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF THOMAS GRAVES (1) AND SARAH ‑‑‑‑‑‑

Isaac Graves (2) was born probably as early as 1620 in England, and died 19 Sept. 1677, killed in an Indian attack on the Hatfield settlement.  He married Mary Church, daughter of Richard and Anna Church.  She came from England in 1637, and died 9 June 1695.

He came to New England with his father and settled in Hartford, Conn. before 1645.  He was made freeman at General Court, Boston, Mass. 16 May 1669, was Sergeant in the Colonial Militia, and Clerk of the Writs for Hatfield, to which he moved in 1661.  He was a prominent man in his time, and one of the representatives of that portion of Hadley (later Hatfield) who appeared before the General Court at Boston in favor of separate church and town rights for Hatfield.

Isaac was a carpenter, and was a resident of Wethersfield, Conn. before 1645.  He "keyed down" Goffe's Bridge in Wethersfield in 1648.

During the continuance of what is usually called "King Philip's War", the inhabitants of these isolated frontier towns were naturally filled with forebodings of danger to their homes and families.  For their own protection and safety, the inhabitants of Northampton, Hadley and Hatfield practically united for mutual defense and assistance.  These three town were occupied by troops from the eastern portion of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay.  At Northampton 26 soldiers were located, at Hadley 30, and at Hatfield 36.  This was the most exposed, as it was the frontier town.  Then they had a committee, called a council of war, chosen from the several towns.  Among the members was Sergeant Isaac Graves.  The object of this council of war was to provide better security to the inhabitants of the several towns.  They counselled with the commander, Major Appleton, relative to the ways and means best to be used for the protection of life and property.

On August 25, 1675, a scouting party of ten was sent out and fell into an ambuscade, and nine were killed. Then on the 17th of September, Captain Lathrop and his company and several teamsters from Deerfield were attacked and massacred.  Only a few escaped.  Sixty-four were buried in one grave as the result of the "Bloody Brook" fight.  Seventeen of the sixty-four were Deerfield men.  In consequence of the numerous attacks by the Indians, the people, to better protect themselves, built a stockade, probably in the atumn of 1675, composed of posts of timber set in the ground, and about ten feet high.  This stockade was built on both sides of Main Street, some twelve or fifteen rods from the east and west lines of the street, extending north from the Northampton road, not far from 100 rods.  This stockade enclosed the bulk of the village.  The houses of Isaac and John Graves were within the stockade.  Unfortunately for them, on September 19, 1677, they were both employed in building a house for John Graves, Jr., about half a mile above the northerly end of the stockade, on a lot adjoining that of Sergeant Benjamin Waite.  Without any warning or thought of danger, they were attacked by the Indians, and Isaac and John were shot down while engaged, as one tradition has it, "in laying shingles on the roof of the house," and with them were likewise two other men who were working with them, John Atchinson and John Cooper.  Eight others were killed, and we presume scalped, as the account speaks of them as being disfigured, and seventeen were made prisoners.  All but one, Obadiah Dickinson, were women and children.

In the early vital records of Hartford, Conn., the first 4 children of Isaac are given as being born there - Mary on 5 July 1647, Isaac on 21 Aug. 1650, Rebecca on 3 July 1652, and Samuel on 5 Oct. 1655.  (R‑200)

Children - Graves

  8. Mary Graves, b. 5 July 1647, m. Eleazer Frary, 28 Jan. 1665.  It was previously believed that this Mary Graves m(2) Joseph Haskell.  However, it is much more likely that the Mary Graves who married Joseph Haskell was a daughter of Mark Graves and Amy ‑‑‑‑‑‑ and a granddaughter of immigrant Samuel Graves of Lynn, MA (genealogy 83).

  9. Isaac Graves, b. 22 (or 21) Aug. 1650, never married, d. before 1677.

  10.  Rebecca Graves, b. 3 July 1652 (or 1653), never married, d. before 1677.

+11.  Samuel Graves, b. 1 (or 5) Oct. 1655, m(1) Sarah Colton, 31 Oct. 1678, m(2) Deliverance ‑‑‑‑‑‑, 1 Jan. 1690, d. 8 Feb. 1692.

  12.  Sarah Graves, m. Benjamin Barrett (of Sunderland, Mass.), 27 April 1677, d. Sunderland.

  13.  Elizabeth Graves, b. 16 March 1661, m. Benjamin Hastings, 1683, d. before 8 Feb. 1697.  He was b. 9 Aug. 1659, m(2) Mary Parsons (of Northampton, Mass.), d. 8 Feb. 1697 (Hatfield).

+14.  John Graves, b. 1664, m. Sarah Banks, 26 Oct. 1686, probably d. 1746.

John Graves (3) was born about 1622 in England, and died 19 Sept. 1677.  He first married Mary Smith of Wethersfield, daughter of Lieut. Samuel Smith and Elizabeth Chileab, probably about 1652.  She was born about 1630 in England, and died 16 Dec. 1668 (or 1665) in Hatfield, Mass.  She came from Ipswich Co., Suffolk, England to Watertown, Mass. in 1634.

He secondly married Mary Wyatt of Haddam, Conn., daughter of John Bronson, and widow of John Wyatt of Haddam, probably on 20 July 1671.  (Either the date of his first wife's death is too early or the date of his marriage to his second wife is too late, since his last child was born between these two dates.)  Mary thirdly married Lt. Willis Allis in 1678.  She married Samuel Gaylord as her fourth husband on 16 March 1681.

John Graves owned land in Hartford and Wethersfield, which he retained when he moved to Hatfield, Mass. in 1661.  He was a man of probity and education, and was employed in 1655 and again in 1659 to run the boundary line between Wethersfield and Mattabessett (now Middletown).  He exchanged land with John Goodrich about 1645.  He bought the land of John Coultmans and also that of Gregory Gibbs.

He and his brother, Sergeant Isaac Graves, were killed by Indians in an attack on Hatfield, 19 Sept. 1677. After his death, his widow thirdly married Lieut. William Allis on 25 June 1678.  She fourthly married Samuel Gaylord.

John's first five children were born in Wethersfield, Conn. and his last five children were born in Hatfield, Mass.  (R‑1, R‑200)

Nathaniel Graves (5) was born about 1629 in England, and died 28 Sept. 1682 at Wethersfield, Conn.  He married Martha Betts, daughter of John and Mary Betts, on 16 Jan. 1655.  She was born in 1625 in England, and died 13 April 1701.  He settled in Wethersfield and was made a freeman there 21 May 1657, was surveyor there in 1661, a fence viewer in 1669, and drew lands in 1670.  He had a homestead on the east side of Broad Street, Wethersfield, in 1659.  In 1662, John Betts of Wethersfield conveyed to him 23 acres of land, and in the deed calls him "his brother."  Nathaniel settled the estate of his father in Conn. ("House lot of 3 acres whereon he liveth," and other lands granted to him in Wethersfield) between 1645 and 1652.  The inventory of Nathaniel's estate, dated 30 Oct. 1682, amounted to 439 pounds, 2 s., 2 d.  (R‑200)

  33.  Abigail Graves, b. 15 Oct. 1669, m. Ebenezer Belden (son of John and Lydia Belden or Belding).

 

Mary Graves (7) was born in England.  She married Moses Ventrous (or Ventris or Ventres) on 14 Jan. 1646/7 in Hartford, Conn.  There is some uncertainty about Mary's name, and even whether she is a Graves.  The Hartford Times, 18 July 1966 states: Moses Ventrous married Grace ‑‑‑‑‑‑ on 14 Jan. 1647.  A marriage record at Hartford states the same thing.

Judd's History of Hatfield, Mass. says Moses Ventrous married 14 Jan. 1647 Mary Graves, daughter of Thomas Graves who married Sarah ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  Another source mentions a possible daughter of Thomas Graves named Mary or Elizabeth.

A note from the Gates-Dawes Memorial says Moses, William and Elizabeth Ventrous were probably children of William Ventrous.

Moses Ventrous was born about 1625 in Farmington, Conn.  His will was dated 1693, and the inventory of his estate was dated 12 April 1697 in Hartford, Conn.  (R‑3)

CHILDREN OF SAMUEL GRAVES (11)

Joseph Graves (40) was born 16 Nov. 1685 and died 22 April 1728.  He married Bridget Scott, daughter of Edward Scott, on 25 Jan. 1717.  She died 1746.  (R‑200)

Children - Graves

  113.  Sarah Graves, b. 13 Nov. 1717, m. Thomas Crafts, 1742, d. 13 Jan. 1803.  See #193 for descendants.

  115.  Elizabeth Graves, b. 14 May 1721, m. Timothy Cole, 11 Sept. 1777 (as his second wife).

 

Thomas Graves (43) was born 21 Nov. (or 22 Oct.) 1690 in Hatfield, Mass., and died about 1 Jan. 1713/14.  He died sometime between 11 Dec. 1713, the date of his will, and 5 Jan. 1713/14, the date his widow exhibited an inventory of her husband's estate.  His will named his wife and only child.

He married Sarah Morgan, daughter of Thomas Morgan and Rachel Merry.  She was baptized 24 May 1696 in Hartford, Conn., and died 3 May 1718.  She died before completing the final accounting of Thomas Graves' estate.  As a result of Sarah's death, Thomas Morgan (her father) was appointed legal guardian of Deliverance Graves, a minor (Early Connecticut Probate Records, Hartford District, 1635-1750, II, p. 209; original records, vol. IX, p. 78). Sarah secondly married Jobannah Smith on 26 Sept. 1714.

In previous publications (including John Card Graves, Genealogy of the Graves Family in America, vol. 1; and Lucius Boltwood, Genealogies of Hadley Families), this Thomas Graves and his second cousin, son of John Graves and Sarah White, were confused.  Lucius Boltwood incorrectly assumed that the records of Thomas, son of John, belonged to Thomas, son of Samuel.  It was Thomas, son of John, who married Lydia Graves and later moved to Belchertown, where he died.

The age of Boltwood's Thomas at death (Hadley Genealogy, p. 60, #12) does not agree with the birthdate of Thomas, the son of Samuel, as it should if Boltwood's assumption were valid.  It does agree, however, with the birthdate of Thomas, son of John.

Another indication of Boltwood's error is that the Thomas, who moved to Belchertown, sold Hatfield land that came to him originally from John Graves (Hampshire Co. land records).  The children of the Belchertown Thomas were named John and Lydia, probably named for Thomas' father and wife.  Finally, Thomas, son of John, was alive in Jan. 1730/31, when the will of his father John was proved.  Thomas, son of Samuel, had died about 1 Jan. 1713/14.

Deliverance, daughter of Thomas and Sarah, may have been named for her grandmother Deliverance, wife of Samuel Graves.  (R‑200, R‑205)

They lived in Sunderland until about 1768, and then moved to Bennington, Vt.  Jesse Graves appeared on a list of the estates and inhabitants of Sunderland, Mass., 11 July 1763; mentioned in description of highway laid out, 12 March 1767, in Sunderland.  He appeared on a Bennington, Vt. petition to the Governor of New Hampshire, dated Oct. 1769.  Catherine Scott's brothers, Samuel, Oliver, Phineas and Moses, had moved to Bennington, Vt., in 1762.  Oliver Scott was one of the first settlers of Rupert, Vt. in 1767.  Rupert town records of the town meeting of 4 April 1780: "this meeting has confirmed to Phineas Sheldon that of land which Oliver Scott gave to Jesse Graves as a freeman of that town in 1778."  There is no trace of this transaction in Rupert land records, however.  A "Resolution in Re Petition of Nicholas Turner," dated 16 Oct. 1778: "On petition of Nicholas Turner late of Reuport in Bennington County ... Resolved ... give a Deed to said Turner ... a certain lot of land ... West on land holden by the heirs of Jesse Graves deceased...."

The Revolutionary War pension application of his son Nathaniel Graves stated: "That in the summer of 1777, he resided in the town of Ruport in the state of Vermont with his brother and three sisters (his mother being dead some years before) and his father went into the service in the forepart of the season on the approach of Burgoyne's Army and was in the battle of Hubbardton, Vermont where the Americans were defeated by a detachment of Burgoyne's Army and Col. Warner's Regiment north cut off and his father was taken a prisoner by the British and carried to Ticonderoga where he was taken sick and died, and that this declarent with his brother two years older than himself and his three sisters retreated from Ruport aforesaid on the general alarms and retreat of the inhabitants of Vermont immediately after 'Hubbardton battle' and were scattered among their relatives and friends in the town of Bennington, Vt. where he lived during the war except out in service."  No records seem to exist showing the militia who fought at the battle of Hubbardton.  The Graves children apparently did not seek any compensation from the towns of Rupert or Bennington, nor the state of Vermont.  No probate of estate seems to exist.

Jesse Graves also appeared as a freeman in the town records of Manchester, Vt., probably in 1777 (records are virtually unreadable).  No record of the birth of Nathaniel appeared in Sunderland town records nor of a younger (?) sister, but both were probably born there. Rupert, Vt. town records are nonexistant before 1780 (the Tory town clerk took them when he left town).  No further record of Jesse Graves appeared in the Rupert, Bennington, or Manchester town records after 1780.

It appears that John Card Graves (R‑200) confused two different Jesse Graveses and made one family out of two.  According to John Card Graves, Jesse secondly married Martha ‑‑‑‑‑‑, who died 6 May 1801 in Charlemont, Mass., and thirdly married widow Elizabeth ("Betsey") Lathrop of Montague, Mass., 27 May 1802 in Montague.  Elizabeth died 6 Feb. 1828 in Charlemont at age 59, and Jesse died 14 Jan. 1819 in Charlemont, Mass.  A Jesse Graves tombstone in the Charlemont cemetery shows this death date but gives his age as 61, indicating a birth date of about 1758 rather than 1730.  It is not known at this time who this other Jesse Graves was who married Martha and then later married Elizabeth Lathrop.

The Revolutionary War pension papers of William Graves say, "He was born in Sunderland, Massachusetts the 2 Decem 1760."  His papers also say, "In 1778 he lived in Rupert, Vermont.... Since the Revolutionary War he has lived entirely in Castleton and West Haven."  Although there is no absolute proof, the most likely person listed in the Sunderland records as being William Graves is Billy Graves, son of Jesse and Catherine Scott Graves, born 2 Sept. 1760.  The published records say, "Billy died young," but no official record of his death has been found.

Two interesting deeds are the following: (1) Record of Nathaniel and William Graves deed from Simeon Sears, ".... by Nathaniel Graves of said town and state (Bennington, Vt.) and William Graves otherwise Bill Graves of Ruport ...."  Joseph Holmes was the original grantee.  (2) Record of Simon Graves deed from William and Nathaniel Graves, Aug. 2, 1783.  ".... William Graves of Castleton ... and Nathaniel Graves of Bennington ....," dated 27 Sept. 1789.  The description of the land is identical to the description for the land in the first deed.  These two deeds indicate the good possibility of Nathaniel and William (Bill) being brothers.

Another piece of evidence is that William named his first son Jesse (possibly after his own father); his second son was Israel (after his wife's father); his third son was Nathaniel (after his brother?); and his fourth son was Oliver (after his mother's father or brother?).

The birth records in Sunderland, Mass. for Jemima, Zilpah and Billy show them listed in consecutive order, which indicates they were all recorded at one time.  No other children are listed for Jesse and Catherine Graves, which indicates: (1) they didn't have more, (2) they didn't bother to record them, or (3) they had already left for Vermont when more children were born.  The third possibility seems most likely, especially considering that the early records for Rupert were lost.  (R‑24, R‑46)

He lived in Sunderland until after the birth of his first child, then moved to Deerfield, then to Montague, and later to some point unknown.  He was in the Regt. of Col.

Zenas Graves (284) was born 28 Jan. 1752 at Westfield, Mass., and died in 1820 at Cambridge, Dearborn Co., IN.  He married Hannah (possibly Franklin[2]) in 1776.  She died in Cambridge, Dearborn Co., IN.  He was in the Rev. Army in Capt. Silas Fowler's Co., and served as a fifer with the Minute Men in 1775.  They lived in Sunderland, Mass., where their first two children were born.  They then moved to Vermont near Wells in Rutland Co., near the border with N.Y. state.

It was probably after 1808 (possibly as late as 1810-1815) that Zenas Graves started west with his sons, Franklin Ward, Horace, and probably also Larantus.  They went down through the state of New York until they came to the headwaters of the Ohio River.  At that point, they built flat boats on which they floated down the river to Kentucky.

They stopped for a while in Kentucky before moving on to Cincinnati, Ohio.  From Cincinnati, they went over into Dearborn Co., Ind.  Zenas moved to a little place known as Cambridge or Pella, a few miles from Lawrenceburg.  He and his wife were buried there in a cemetery now deserted, of which there are no records and where no headstones exist.

Descendants of Franklin Ward Graves, son of Zenas, said they were told that Franklin was his mother's maiden name.

Zenas' oldest child Horace named his sons after his brothers.  Thus, there was a Franklin Ward Graves, Jr., who was the son of Horace Graves.  The Graves of the Donner party of 1846 were the family of F. W., Sr.

Unfortunately, there is some confusion today about exactly how many children Zenas had, and what happened to them all.  By most accounts, in addition to Horace, Rachel, William and Franklin Ward, he had a son Larantus who was also called Rantus.

There is a Francis Graves buried on the William Graves lot in the Caledonia Cem. in Putnam Co., Ill.  This is presumed to be Larantus.  (R‑48, R‑64, R‑84, R‑200)

William ("Billy") Graves (545) was born 2 Sept. 1760 in Sunderland, Mass.  His name was recorded as Billy with his birth entry in the Sunderland town records.  He died 30 May 1841 in Essex Co., N.Y., possibly in Ticonderoga. He married Jerusha Hurlburt, daughter of Israel Hurlburt and Jerusha ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 5 Aug. 1784 in Castleton, Rutland Co., Vt. (town records).  She was born 5 Jan. 1768, probably in Canaan, Conn., and probably died before 1820 in West Haven, Rutland Co., Vt.  According to History of Woodbury, Ct., the Castleton town records show that Israel Hurlburt deeded land to Jerusha Graves.

William Graves enlisted in the Revolutionary Army from Rupert, Vt. in 1778, and served 2 months.  He enlisted again in the spring of 1779, and served 9-10 months.  He enlisted a third time on 1 Feb. 1780 and served 10 months at Castleton and Pittsford forts and scouted on the borders, and again enlisted on 1 Feb. 1781 and served 10 months at Castleton, Vt., where he was discharged.

He bought land in Rupert, Vt., in Aug. 1783, with Nathaniel Graves.  The land deed referred to: "... and William Graves otherwise Bill Graves of Ruport... Confirm to them the said Nathaniel Graves and Bill Graves...."  The deed to Simon Graves from William and Nathaniel Graves stated: ".... William Graves of Castletown in the County of Rutland and Nathaniel Graves of Bennington...."  This land was sold in 1789 to their cousin, Simeon Graves.

William Graves moved to Castleton, Vt. about 1784-5, where the Graves family lived until late 1810-11, when he moved to West Haven, Vt.  He lived there until after the death of his wife, according to pension records, when he moved to Ticonderoga, N.Y. to live with his son Oliver in June 1837.  William appeared on lists of voters of Castleton, Vt. from 1795 to 1810.  The first 8 children were born in Castleton, Rutland Co., Vt., and the last two were probably born in West Haven, Rutland Co., Vt.  (R‑24, R‑46)

Nathaniel Graves (546) was born 22 Sept. 1763 in Sunderland, Mass., according to his Revolutionary War pension application, and died 30 March 1849 in Conneaut Twp., Erie Co., PA, having moved there from Attica, NY, to be near his son William.  He married before 1790, but no record of the marriage has been found in Bennington, Rupert, or Manchester, Vt.  His wife died 29 Aug. 1848.  They were both buried in the Valley Cem., near Albion, Erie Co., PA, and their dates of death are from their gravestones.

According to his pension application, Nathaniel served with the army for 1 month in the fall of 1778, 1 month in the fall of 1779, half a month in July 1780, 1 month in the fall of 1780, 2 months in the fall of 1781, and 2 months in the fall of 1782.  He was captured on a scouting trip under the command of Sergeant Tupper when the Sergeant was killed and the other men captured.  He was exchanged in a few days. There is nothing in his pension application file after Jan. 1834.

He lived in Bennington, Vt. for about 4 years after the Revolution, moved to Springfield, Madison Co., N.Y. for 2 years, Whitestown, Oneida Co., N.Y. for 1 year, New Hartford, Oneida Co., N.Y. for 3 years, Germantown, Herkimer Co., N.Y. for 3 years, Paris, Oneida Co., N.Y. for 6 years, Sangersfield, Oneida Co., N.Y. for 22 years, Climer, Chautauqua Co., N.Y. for 6 years, Attica, Genessee Co.

CHILDREN OF SILAS GRAVES (232)

Julius Graves (548) was born 29 June 1759 in Sunderland, Mass.  The name of his first wife is not known.  He secondly married Elizabeth Frizzell of Montague on 29 Aug. 1776.  (This may be wrong, since his father is also reported to have married Elizabeth on the same date.)

He was a private in Capt. Oliver Carey's Company, Col. Sears' Regt. in the Rev. War for three months in 1781. He was taxed in Deerfield, Mass. from 1789 to 1793.  (R‑200)

 

Stephen Graves (550) was born 22 May 1763 in Deerfield, Franklin Co., Mass., and died 2 March 1828 at his home on Island Creek, about 2 miles south of Vonore, Monroe Co., Tenn.  He may have been born in 1759, as indicated by his pension application, and the 1763 date may be when he was baptized.  He married Jennie (or Jenny) ‑‑‑‑‑‑ about 1783-4.  She was born about 1760, probably in Blount Co., Tenn., and died after 1820 in Blount Co. or Monroe Co., Tenn.

Stephen enlisted in Massachusetts in 1776 or the spring of 1777 for a term of 5 years.  He served as a drummer in Capt. Lillie's and Capt. Harris's Co., Col. Knox Regt. of Artillery, in the American Revolution.  He was in the battles of Skinesborough, Stillwater, and Saratoga, and present at the surrender of Burgoyne after Gen. Wayne took Stone Point in 1779.  He marched to that place and was taken prisoner by the British, and taken on a sloop to Charleston, S.C., where he was kept prisoner until the end of the Revolution.  He never returned to Massachusetts.  (Another version is that in 1780, with two friends, he went on furlough to Boston, was captured by the British and taken on the Sloop of War Vulture to the harbor of Charleston, S.C., where he was recaptured by an American privateer.  After the ship made a tour, he was released in Charleston about 1783-84.  Meanwhile, he was listed as a deserter from the Army in Mass. in 1780.)

Stephen paid poll tax and owned 50 acres of land in 1800 in Blount Co., Tenn.  With sons William and Adam he served as a drum major in the War of 1812.

He was allowed a pension on his application executed July 1, 1818, at which time he was 59 years old and residing in Blount Co., Tenn.  "State of Tenn., Co. of Blount, Sept. 25, 1820, appeared Stephen Graves, age 61, a resident of said county, that he served in the Revolution, has no income from other than that which is in the schedule contained hereto annexed.  1 mare 2 years old, 1 calf 1 year old, 1 sow, 3 pigs, 1 note for $40.00 John Black involvent (?), 1 note for $50 on John V. Hynes a desperate debt.  I owe $60 and $65 in all.  I am a farmer by occupation, but I have no land to cultivate and if I did my age and infirmity is so great that I could not support myself.  My family consists of myself and my wife Jenny, age about 60.  I believe she is as stout (?) as perhaps any at her age could be who has a family and is in moderate circumstances.  Stephen Graves."

Stephen sold his land to Adam, his son, and was living with him in 1820.  All his children were probably born in Blount Co., Tenn.  (R‑17, R‑21)

William Graves (661) was born about 1781 in Troy, N.Y., died 10 Oct. 1856[7] in Magnolia (or Lostant), Ill., at the age of 75 years, 5 months, 21 days, and was buried in the Caledonia Cem. near Magnolia, Putnam Co., Ill.  He married Mirium (or Mariam[8]) Howe of Wells, Rutland Co., Vt., on 29 Sept. 1806 in Wells.  She was born 25 Aug. 1781, and died 17 March 1882 at the age of 100 years, 6 months, 20 days, at the home of her son, Horace Graves, west of Lostant, Hope Twp., LaSalle Co., Ill., and was also buried in the Caledonia Cem.[9]

From Wells, Vt., they moved to Troy, N.Y., where their oldest son was born in 1808.  In 1815, they were in Gettysburg, Pa., where their third child, Horace, was born.  In 1819, they were in Ontario Co., N.Y., when another son, William, was born.

In 1820 (or possibly 1822), they moved to Pawnee, Sangamon Co., Ill., near Springfield.  One account says that they moved with at least two of William's brothers. William was only reported to have three brothers; by some reports, those three had moved with their father, Zenas, to Indiana.  Whatever the case, they are reported to have stopped in southern Indiana on their way to Illinois. There they visited William's brother, Horace, who lived in Ripley Co., Ind., about 12 miles from the Ohio River.

One account says they remained in Sangamon Co., Ill. for 12 years.  They then moved to Putnam Co., Ill., where William died.  (R‑48, R‑64, R‑212)

Franklin Ward Graves (663) was born in Wells, Rutland Co., VT, in sight of the Green Mountains, and died 25 Dec. 1846, west of Donner Pass, CA, in the Sierra Nevada mountains.  He moved with his father to Indiana, probably between 1808 and 1815.  He left Indiana after 1826 and moved to Mississippi; his son, William Cooper Graves, was born there in 1829.  Around 1831, he joined his brothers in Illinois.  He married Elizabeth Cooper, known as "Betty" or "Betsy."  She was born 10 Oct. 1800, possibly in IN, and died 5 March 1847 in "Starved Camp", west of Donner Pass.  Her parents were William Cooper, born 12 Oct. 1773, disappeared, and Eleanor Magee, born 4 June 1772 (daughter of Peter Magee and Nancy ‑‑‑‑‑‑).

He served in the infantry during the Black Hawk War. He was a genuine backwoodsman and pioneer who despised the trammels of civilization.  His most congenial associations were on the frontier.  He was a man of large frame, good natured, hospitable, and ever ready to do a kindness.  He was more hunter than farmer.  However, he secured a large tract of land and opened up a considerable farm upon the bottoms.  This may be the land he bought from the Indians, where the town of Sparland, Marshall Co., Ill., now stands.

In the spring of 1846, he sold his land to move to California.  He died of starvation and exposure before dawn on Christmas day, 1846, in the Sierra Nevada mountains someplace west of what is now called Donner Pass, as part of the ill-fated Donner Party.  The date and place of death are from the book, Ordeal by Hunger, by George R. Stewart, 1960, pp. 102-103.  (This account is more accurate and complete than the previous standard, The History of the Donner Party, C. F. McGlashan, 1880.)

According to Martha A. Morris, mother of Esther M. Nielsen (R‑65), two of the daughters of the Graves family survived, were captured by the Indians but later rescued, and went on to California where they married and had children.  Bessie Humphrey Greene who was writing a history of the Graves family in the 1930's is probably a granddaughter or great-granddaughter of one of these survivors.  A son, William Graves, was known to have survived and returned to Illinois, two years after reaching California.  From Illinois he went to Indiana to visit his uncle, Horace Graves, and from there he went back to California as a guide for a wagon train.  This story of the Graves family is given in History of Marshall, Putnam Co. as "The Graves Tragedy."  The History of the Donner Party, previously mentioned, lists the names of those who perished and those who got through to California, and who they married.  (R‑64, R‑84)

Graves, 638 Asylum Ave., Tuesday afternoon, at the age of 94 years.  She had been confined to the house for a number of years on account of the infirmities of age. But her mind was unimpaired, being bright and vigorous until the last.  The deceased was Ada Eels Thatcher before her marriage....

In 1878 Mrs. Graves became a member of the Center church by letter from the Congregational church in Lee, and was one of its oldest communicants.

She was a descendant of a notable line of Massachusetts ancestry, including the Rev. Peter Bulkeley, D.D. of Concord, the Rev. Anthony Thatcher of Cape Cod, through Col. John, Col. John, Jr., the Rev. Roland and Timothy Thatcher, Josiah Winslow, John Tilly and John Howland of the Mayflower, the Rev. Charles Chauncey, D.D., Gov. Thomas Hinckley, Thomas Richards, Thomas Bourne, and William Pynchon, the founder of Springfield, William Phelps, Edward Griswold and John Drake, founders of Windsor, and the Hosmer, Bushnell and Post families of Saybrook.

Mrs. Graves was a woman of great personal worth, and devoted through life to her family.  She was possessed of the sunniest of dispositions and left nothing unattempted that could add to the happiness of others.

She leaves two sons and one daughter.  They are Miles W. Graves of this city, Lemuel C. Graves of Chihuahua, Mexico, and Miss Julia A. Graves of Hartford.  The funeral will be held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon from the residence of Mr. Graves.  The services will be conducted by the Rev. Rockwell Harmon Potter, pastor of the Center church, and the Rev. Elliot T. Talmadge, the assistant pastor.  The burial will be in Spring Grove cemetery."  (R‑200)
