DESCENDANTS OF FRANCIS GRAVES OF GLOUCESTER CO. & ESSEX CO., VA

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Francis Graves, Sr. (1) was born about 1630 in Virginia, and died about 1691 (before 5 Aug. 1691).  The birth date of Francis was inferred from the belief that he was still a minor and described as "orphan of Capt. Thomas Graves decd." in 1642.  (Although that date may still be the correct one, we now know that he was not a son of Capt. Thomas Graves.)  We have no information about Francis Graves until 1672, and it is possible that he didn’t live in Virginia much before that.  According to Mrs. Hiden, it is likely from the associates his family chose that he spent some time in Gloucester Co., VA before settling in Essex Co., VA.  It is also probable that he lived in Essex Co. before patenting land there, and that the 714 acres he patented 10 Oct. 1672 (S.L.O. 6, p. 436) "on the south side of the river, part on the branch of Gilson's Creek and part on Hoskins Creek adjoining Mr. Beverley's corner," represented a choice of location rather than just the reward for transporting 14 persons.

He married Jane Maguffey (or McGuffy or Maguffy) before 28 Nov. 1678.  Her maiden name may have been Davenport, and she may have first married Mr. Maguffey, secondly Francis Graves, and thirdly John D. Doughty. The marriage of Francis to Jane was his second (according to Mrs. Sue Davis).  At the time of his marriage to Jane he gave certain cattle to his step-children, John and Jane Maguffey and Elizabeth Davenport (Old Rappahannock Records, Deeds and Wills 6, p. 57).  The original deed is preserved among the loose papers of Essex Co. and shows Francis Graves's firm signature.

In 1694, after Francis had died and Jane had remarried John Doughty, this new husband deeded certain property to Jane's sons, Francis, Richard, and Thomas Graves (Essex Deeds and Wills 6, Reverse of book, p. 296).  Doughty died between 1704, when he is listed in the Quit Rent Roll (Va. Mag., vol. 33, p. 262), and 1715, when Francis and Thomas Graves (sons of Jane and Francis) appear on the list (Essex Quit Rent Roll 1715, Archives Div., Va. State Library).

According to The Diary of Robert Rose, p. 320, Francis Graves, Jr., who died in 1748, had a nephew Benjamin Graves who had been overseer, first for the Rev. John Bagge on Thomas Button's "Range" plantation in Essex Co. in 1726 and earlier, and then for Parson Rose at the glebe in Essex Co., Va.

One of the most disputed issues regarding Francis Graves has been the identity of his parents.  It was long believed that Francis was a son of Capt. Thomas Graves of VA (genealogy 169).  A record referred to Fra. Graves, orphan of Thomas Graves.  This child was originally said by genealogist William Montgomery Sweeny in a published article in 1935 (R‑906) to be a son of Capt. Thomas Graves.  This was repeated by Mrs. P. W. Hiden in 1936 (R‑907).  However, others provided evidence that the last child of Capt. Thomas Graves was a daughter, and that the male Francis Graves was a son of someone else unknown.  After a thorough search and examination of the documentary evidence, Richard Kesler decided that this last child of Thomas probably was a son, as explained in the Appendix at the end of this book.  However, the results of the Graves DNA Study indicate that Francis was a son of another Graves immigrant, and the child of Capt. Thomas Graves was a daughter.  Since the documentary evidence is ambiguous and the DNA evidence is conclusive, there is now no question that the youngest child of Capt. Thomas Graves was a daughter.  As a result, the male Francis Graves and his descendants have been removed from genealogy 169 and placed in this separate genealogy.

The DNA testing of descendants not only proves that Francis Graves was not related to any of the children of Capt. Thomas Graves, but it also proves that he did share Graves ancestry with Rear Admiral Thomas Graves of Massachusetts (genealogy 28), and it is suspected that he was probably closely related to this other Thomas Graves.  The involvement of Richard Graves, son of Francis, in coastal trade with a sloop supports the connection of Francis with a seafaring and shipowning family.  (R‑14, R‑20, R‑906, R‑907, R‑918)

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF FRANCIS GRAVES (1)

John Graves (2) married Johannah ("Hannah" or Joanna) ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  They lived in St. Anne's Parish, Essex Co., Va.  He died 1720 in Essex Co.

The following discussion is from the Graves Family Newsletter, 1993, pages 30-31.  The Graves ancestry of Jane Graves who married John Coffey is of considerable interest to the many descendants of this couple.  An excellent book on the Coffey family was published in 1984 by Marvin D. Coffey, James Bluford Coffey, His Ancestors and Descendants in America, Vol. II - Ancestors.  On page 31 of that book, he states: “About 1728 John Coffey married Jane Graves, the daughter of John Graves, deceased, and his wife Hannah...  The origin of our Graves ancestors is far from clear...  Unfortunately, we cannot identify our John Graves as one of [the known men named John Graves who were descended from Capt. Thomas Graves of VA]...”

“Coffey genealogists who have looked into our Graves ancestry claim that the parents of John Graves (d. 1720) were James Graves and his wife Jean Mayfield...”  He goes on to provide evidence that casts doubt on this ancestry, however.

Jane is named as a daughter in the will of John Graves, dated 5 Sept. 1719 in Essex Co., VA.  James Graves (Jane’s brother) made a will in Essex Co., dated 10 Jan. 1724, naming his wife Jean as executrix but naming no children (making it unlikely that James could have been the father of John or anyone else).

The two previous Graves ancestries for Jane Graves that have been suggested have been through John2 Graves, son of Capt. Thomas Graves, and through Francis2, Francis3.  Both of these have been shown to be very unlikely.

The possibilities are that John, the father of Jane Graves, was a son or grandson of one of the 3 sons of Capt. Thomas Graves, John, Thomas, or Francis.  John2, b.c. 1611, d.c. 1640, didn’t have a son John.  Looking at his 3 sons: Ralph, b. by 1629, had no son John named in his 1667 will; William, b. by 1631, had only 1 daughter and no sons, per a 1668 document; Thomas, b. by 1631, had a son John who was b.c. 1665, d. after 1737, lived in King and Queen Co., VA, and was clearly not the father of Jane.

Looking at Thomas2, he had no son John.  His son Thomas, b.c. 1639, had a son John, b. by 1677, d. by 1716, lived in Gloucester Co., VA, clearly a different John; son Jeffrey had no son John; William had a son John who was not baptized until 1689.

This leaves only Francis2, youngest son of Capt. Thomas Graves.  Since the sons of Francis by his marriage to Jane Maguffey were born too late to be the father of John, John could only have been by a first marriage of Francis2.

The descent that is believed to be correct is: Capt. Thomas1 Graves; Francis2, b.c. 1630, d.c. 1691; John3, b. before 1678, d. 1720, Essex Co., VA; Jane4, b.c. 1701-05, m. John Coffey.  On page 140, 1980 Graves Family Newsletter, is the statement, “Some authorities think Francis married an unknown first wife, leaving descendants living in Essex Co. prior to his marriage in 1678 to the widow Jane Maguffey.”  Since Francis was about 48 years of age when he married Jane Maguffey, it is certainly reasonable to think he had been married before that and had one or more children.  In a letter to Kenneth V. Graves on 29 Feb. 1984, Mrs. Sue Davis of Benton, AR wrote: “John shouldn’t be listed as a child of Jane Maguffey.  He was by a first wife.”  Sue Davis was a very thorough researcher, and did much outstanding and reliable research on the Graves family.  (Note: The discussion in this section referring to Francis Graves as a son of Capt. Thomas Graves was written before it was realized that Francis was not a son of Thomas.  The appropriate changes need to be made.)  (R‑14)

Children - Graves

  6. Benjamin Graves

  7. James Graves, m. Jean (or Jane) Mayfield, d. 1724 (Essex Co., Va.  His will dated 19 Jan. 1724.  She was dau. of Robert Mayfield (will dated 3 Dec. 1714, Essex Co., Va.).

  8. Martha Graves

  9. Ann Graves

+10.  Jane (or Jean) Graves, b.c. 1701-5, m. John Coffey.

 

Francis Graves, Jr. (3) was born 1679 in Rappahannock Co., VA, and died in 1748 in Essex Co., VA. He married Anne (or Ann) Reynolds (?) in 1699.  She may have been his second wife.  She was living as late as 21 Oct. 1765, for on that date "on petition of Ann Graves it is ordered that James and Robert Reynolds, James Key and James Clark or any three of them divide the estate of Francis Graves deceased as devised in his will" (O.B. 26, p. 284).  It is partly supposition that her last name was Reynolds, based on the fact that the Reynolds were neighbors and had a daughter named Anne.

They moved from Rappahannock Co., where Francis Jr. had been born, to Essex Co., VA, where they lived and died.  The will of Francis Graves, Jr., made 25 June 1746, was proved 18 Oct. 1748 in Essex Co. (Will Book 8, pages 90-91).  The following six children were all named in this will.  Of his daughters, only Clara was married in 1748.

Francis and his brother Thomas continued to live in Essex Co., unlike their brother Richard who moved away. Their associates were the Reeves, Reynolds, Wallers, Hipkins, Colemans, Streshleys, Pamplins, Roanes, and Upshaws, though most of the exact relationships are not known.  Most of these families came to Essex Co. from Gloucester Co., VA.  (R‑14, R‑20, R‑907)

Children - Graves

  11.  Jane Graves[1]

  12.  Ann Graves; it has been said that Ann married John Satterwhite.  However, the Satterwhite family generally say that John Satterwhite m. Ann Price, dau. of Robert Price and Elizabeth Brooke.  (R‑14)

+13.  Clara Graves, m. Aaron Higginbotham, Sr., c. 1746.

+14.  Elizabeth Graves, b.c. 1733, m. Benjamin Higginbotham, 21 Feb. 1753 (or 1750), d. after 1790.

  15.  Mary Graves, b. 1788, m. Col. Hugh Mulholland, d. 17 April 1826 (Orange Co., N.C.).  Her birth date does not fit with that of Elizabeth and of her supposed father Francis; should it be 1738?

+16.  William Graves, b.c. 1724, m. Dorothy ‑‑‑‑‑‑, d.c. 1809.

 

Richard Graves (4) may have been born about 1673 in Old Rappahannock Co., VA.  He left Essex Co., Va. between 1708 and 1714 (Essex O.B. 1708-14, pp. 608-609).  He and Francis Shackelford had bought a sloop in partnership and they probably engaged in coastwise trade.  Richard apparently died about 1730, since this seems to be the Richard Graves of Craven Precinct, N.C., who in his will, dated 11 April 1730, referred to nephews "Richard and Francis, sons of brother Thomas Graves in Virginia."  In the Essex Order Book mentioned above, Francis Graves (Richard's brother) testified in Sept. 1714 that, since leaving Essex Co., Richard had sent him a small Indian boy in payment for a debt.

Richard took a prominent part in the affairs of Craven Precinct and was a person of recognized ability. According to Charles Paul, in Colonial Beaufort, “Sometime prior to the fall of 1713, permission had been obtained from the Lords Proprietors to lay out a town by the name of Beaufort at this site, and on October 2, 1713, Robert Turner had Richard Graves, Deputy Surveyor, lay out the town. A plat was made of the town by Graves and recorded in the office of the secretary of the colony. Streets were named; allotments were provided for a church, a town-house, and a market place; and lots were offered for sale.”[2]  In 1726 Richard Graves represented the Precinct in the Lower House of the Assembly of N.C. (Colonial Records of N.C., vol. 2, p. 528).

He married Hannah Kent, daughter of Thomas Kent and Ann Cornell, in 1715 in Albemarle District, NC.  Ann was a daughter of Thomas Cornell and Rebecca Briggs.

It was previously believed that the wife of Richard Graves was Hannah Cosolvo, daughter of Lawrence Consolvo, but that is not correct.  Thomas Kent and Ann Cornell had six daughters.  Sarah was the oldest and Hannah was the youngest.  The Kents were Quakers, but Hannah married “out of union[3]” to Richard.  Sarah Kent married Lawrence Consolvos when Hannah was 11 years old.  Their only son, Thomas, was born 1684 and died 1687.  Sarah married two more times, to John Johnson and to William Long, and died 3 May 1718.  Hannah Kent first married John Smithwick, who died in 1696.  She married second Furnifold Greene (or Farnifold Green), killed in the Tuscarora War.  She married Richard Graves third, and then married George Linnington (or Lillington?), whom she survived.

North Carolina Colonial Records, 1693-94, Thomas Lepper proved ten rights: Thomas, Ann, Sarah, Rebecca and Ann Kent, Jr., along with five men, including hemself.  The Kents had come to Perquimins Precinct from Massachusetts, and were Quakers.  Hannah Kent was born 10 May 1673.  The marriages of several of her sisters are in the Quaker records, but her’s isn’t.  See Journal of North Carolina Genealogy, pp. 1379-1380, Winter 1964, and also Virkus, VII, p. 641, showing the Kent family.  The Albemarle Co., NC Quaker records are found in Berkeley Parish Records, published by Hathaway.  (R‑1, R‑907)

+18.  Thomas Graves, m. Sara Turner, c. 1745, d.c. 1767.

 

Thomas Graves (5) was born about 1684-5, and died about 1742-3.  He married Elizabeth Moody, daughter of John Moody and Mary ‑‑‑‑‑‑, about 1708‑10.  She was born about 1690 and died about 1739.

From the will of Thomas' brother Richard, we know that Thomas had sons Richard and Francis.  There seem to be no documents in Essex Co. that prove other children, but from the fact that John Graves qualifies as administrator we consider him the oldest son.  He was not a son of either Francis or Richard, as their wills show, and his birth is too early for him to have been a grandson.  By elimination, therefore, he was a son of Thomas.  (R‑23, R‑907)

Children - Graves

  19.  John Graves, b. 10 Dec. 1712.  This is the John Graves who was previously thought to have married Susannah Dicken.  However, it has been proven that was John5 in genealogy 169, descended Thomas1, Thomas2, Thomas3, John 4, John5.

+20.  Richard Graves, b. by 1717, m. Elizabeth Hill, d. by 1771.

GENERATION 3

 

CHILDREN OF JOHN GRAVES (2) AND JOHANNA ‑‑‑‑‑‑

Jane Graves (10) was probably born about 1701-05.  Her name was given as Jean in her father's will (?), but the names Jean and Jane were often used interchangeably.  She married John Coffey, son of Edward Coffey (or Coffee) and Ann Powell, probably about 1728, in Essex Co., Va.  Edward died testate in Essex Co., probate 20 March 1716, naming sons John and Edward, both under age 16, son Austin (although there is a possibility this is a daughter Austis or Austes), and daughters Martha, Ann, and Elizabeth.  John died testate in 1775 in Albemarle Co., Va., naming his wife as Jean.  (Incorrect information is shown in The Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy, vol. 3, p. 464.)

John was born no earlier than 1700 in Essex Co., Va. (since he was under 16 when his father died), and died in March 1775 in Albemarle Co., Va.

Jane and John lived in Spotsylvania Co., Va. (where many records were lost when the courthouse was burned in the War Between the States in 1865) and also in Albemarle Co., Va.

It has been believed by some that Jane and John had another daughter, Martha Elizabeth Coffey, who married John Cleveland.  However, that is not correct.  Elizabeth Coffey, daughter of Edward Coffey and sister of John Coffey, is the one who married John Cleveland.  This couple lived most of their lives at Blue Run, Orange Co., Va., and had several famous sons, most notably Col. Benjamin Cleveland of Revolutionary War fame.

Also, at least one source (R‑20) states that John Cleveland was born 1701, died 1786, and married Martha about 1720.  These dates would have made it impossible for Martha to be a daughter of Jane and John.  Mr. Coffey (R‑922) has concluded (after thorough examination of the evidence) that John Cleveland was born 31 July 1714 in Gloucester Co., Va., died in Nov. 1778 in Blue Run, Orange Co., Va., and married Elizabeth Coffey on 20 April 1734.  She was born about 1714 in Essex Co., Va.

The first 6 children listed below were born in Essex Co., Va., Reuben was born in either Essex of Spotsylvania Co., and Benjamin was born in Spotsylvania Co., Va.

Further information on Jane Graves and John Coffey and all their known descendants is given in James Bluford Coffey, His Ancestors and Descendants in America, vol. II, by Marvin D. Coffey, 1984.  However, as an aid to people trying to connect to this ancestor, the next 4 generations after Jane and John Coffey are given in this book also.  (R‑14, R‑20, R‑29, R‑922)

CHILDREN OF FRANCIS GRAVES, JR. (3)

Clara Graves (13) married Aaron Higginbotham, Sr., son of John Higginbotham and Frances Riley, not later than 1746 (possibly 1739) in Amherst Co., Va.  He was a brother of Benjamin who married Clara's sister Elizabeth.  He was born in 1715 in Va., and died in 1785 in Amherst Co., Va., since his will was proved 3 Oct. 1785 in Amherst Co.

Aaron was a Captain in the Amherst Co., Va. Militia in 1769.  He was also a Church Warden and Vestryman of Lexington Parish, Amherst Co., Va.  (R‑918, R‑921)

Children - Higginbotham

+31.  Samuel Higginbotham, b.c. 1745, m. Jane Satterwhite, c. 1769, d. 1803.

+36.  Frances Graves Higginbotham, m. Joseph Higginbotham Morrison.

 

Elizabeth Graves (14) was born about 1733 in Essex Co., Va., and died after 1790 in Elbert Co., Ga.  She married Benjamin Higginbotham, son of John Higginbotham and Frances Riley, on 21 Feb. 1750 (or 1753) in Albemarle Co. (now Amherst Co.), Va.  He was born about 1728 in Goochland Co. (now Amherst Co.), Va., and died in 1791 in Elbert Co., Ga.  His father, John Higginbotham, was born 1695 in St. Philip Parish, Barbados, and died 1741-44 in Goochland Co. (now Amherst Co.), Va.  Benjamin was a brother of Aaron Higginbotham who married Elizabeth's sister Clara.  Benjamin moved his family to what became Elbert Co., Ga. from Amherst Co., Va. about 1784.  Thomas Higginbotham, his uncle, moved to Georgia from Virginia in 1751.  All the following children were born in Albemarle Co. (or its successor, Amherst Co.), Va. (R‑18, R‑918)

Children - Higginbotham

+37.  Ann Higginbotham, b.c. 1752, m. Jacob Higginbotham, 18 Oct. 1772.

+38.  Caleb Higginbotham, b.c. 1755, m. Mary Ann Cash, before 1775, d. 1823.

+39.  Benjamin Higginbotham, Jr., b.c. 1758, m. Mary Gatewood, 21 Jan. 1782, d. 3 Sept. 1810.

+41.  Joseph Higginbotham, b.c. 1763, m. Frances Higginbotham, 17 Dec. 1788, d. 1817.

+42.  Francis Higginbotham, b.c. 1765, m. Dolly Gatewood, 2 Dec. 1783, d. 26 March 1829.

 

William Graves (16) was born about 1724 (as proven by oath in Henry Co., VA) in Essex Co., VA, and died about 1809 in Franklin Co., VA.  He married Dorothy ‑‑‑‑‑‑ (probably Smith, of the Peyton Smith family).  They moved to Pittsylvania Co., VA about 1773, in the area of Pigg River.

There has been some confusion between this William Graves and another one.  See the Appendix of this book for an article from the Graves Family Newsletter, 1984, pp. 36-41, discussing the results of extensive research that shows that this William Graves was not the William Graves who was a son of Thomas Graves who was born 1691 and married Ann Davenport, but rather a son of Francis Graves, Jr.

Other misconceptions and areas for further research and evidence are listed below.

Š     It was believed that Gov. Bibb Graves (of Alabama) was descended from that William Graves.  That is not correct.

Š     Mrs. Hiden (R‑907) stated that this William Graves was born 1700-1702, and that Francis Graves (#21) was his son.  That is not believed to be correct.

Š     Mr. Bill Thompson (R‑186) lists Reuben and Edmond as children, but not Catherine and Jane.

Š     John Card Graves listed a Thomas Graves as a child between Mollie and Catherine.

Š     It is possible that Peter Graves, born about 1750-55, was a son of this William Graves.  He was probably not, although he was probably closely related.

His land seems to have been in the same neighborhood as that of his uncle, Francis Graves, and he associated with the same families.  In 1757 (Deed Book 27, p. 321) he and William Reynolds, William Watkins and Leonard Hill witnessed a deed from Thomas Coleman to Richard Hill. The next year he bought of Samuel and Ann Cross 62 acres devised to said Samuel by the will of his father, Joseph Cross, who bought this land Feb. 19, 1744/5 from John Cheek of Drysdale Parish; witnesses: John Garnett, Jr., Joseph Cross, William Southworth (Deed Book 28, p. 79). In 1762, he bought from John and Mary Garnett 48 acres purchased by said Garnett in 1746 of Thomas Hobson (Deed Book 29, p. 83).  In 1763 (Deed Book 29, p. 220) he bought 47-1/2 acres in South Farnham Parish, adjoining John Hill, Graves and Watkins, from Richard Holt, Sr., and Mary his wife of King and Queen Co.  The Garnetts and Graveses had long been neighbors, and in 1751 (Deed Book 25, p. 131) Reuben and Sarah Noell for love and affection had deeded "to our brother John Garnett, Jr." land adjoining lands of "Ann Graves widow of Francis Graves," John Satterwhite, Philip Sanders and Ann Dickie, widow. In 1761 (Deed Book 29, p. 10) Thomas Davis, tailor, of the Parish of Nottoway, Co. of Amelia, sold to Francis Graves (husband of Susannah) of South Farnham Parish 100 acres in St. Ann's Parish which John Davis, father of said Thomas, purchased of George Coleman, adjoining John Garnett; wit.: Leonard Hill, James Evans, Richard Hill, Jr., and Martha Beazley.

The obituary of Francis Graves (Richmond, Va. Gazette and General Advertiser, April 4, 1792) is as follows: "Died on Friday" March "23rd at his seat in Essex after a long and painful illness which he bore with a deal of fortitude.  Mr. Francis Graves in the 68th year of his age much lamented by all those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance."

His will (Essex Will Book 14, p. 285) mentions son Francis, to whom is left "the land I purchased of Thomas Davis"; daughter Luca Spearman; son Rice, who receives "land I purchased of Richard Holt and also that purchased from Samuel Cross to John Hill's line"; and daughter Betty Graves.  The wording of these bequests shows that the sons were not at this time residents of Essex.  The only mention in Essex that has been found of Rice is when with wife Elizabeth and Susannah Graves he witnessed on 21 Dec. 1779 the will of Timothy Longest.  The will was proved 19 Dec. 1781 by Rice and Elizabeth Graves.  Susannah, most likely, was Rice's mother, and had died in the interim.  Francis's will mentions no wife, so he evidently was a widower.  (R‑907)

CHILDREN OF CLARA GRAVES (13) AND AARON HIGGINBOTHAM

Samuel Higginbotham (31) was born not later than 1747 (possibly 1745) in Albemarle Co., Va., because he was a member of a jury in 1768 and had to be at least 21 to serve.  He died intestate in 1803 in Elbert Co., Ga., and was buried in what is now known as the "Hop Brener Place" which is about four miles north of Elbert, Elbert Co., Ga.  There is a government marker on his grave.

Samuel married Jane Satterwhite, daughter of John and Ann Satterwhite of Essex Co., Va., not later than 1770 (probably about 1769) in Essex Co., Va.  It is believed by some that Jane's mother was Ann Graves (#12), sister of Clara Graves.  However, it is more likely that she was a daughter of John Satterwhite, Jr. and Ann Price.  Jane was born about 1750 in Caroline Co., Va., and died after 1790 in Elbert Co., Ga.

The civil and military positions held by Samuel Higginbotham included the following: member of a jury in Amherst Co., Va. in 1768; Lieut. in the Amherst Co., Va. Militia in 1769; Lieut. in the Rev. War, acting as a recruiting officer in Va.; Capt. in the Rev. War for Amherst Co., Va. in 1780; Church Warden and Vestryman for Lexington Parish, Amherst Co., Va. in 1781; tax collector in Lexington Parish, Amherst Co., Va. in 1782; Deputy Sheriff in Amherst Co., Va. in 1784; Major in the Amherst Co., Va. Militia in 1785; Colonel in the Amherst Co., Va. Militia in 1787.  He moved to Georgia with his family in 1792.  He was delegate from Elbert Co., Ga. to the Constitutional Convention in 1795.  (R‑65, R‑69, R‑921)

Franklin, son of Henry Franklin and Margaret Hensley, in 1767 in Amherst Co., VA.  He was born about 1749 in Amherst Co., VA, and died in 1782, since there is a record for a court held on June 3, 1782, in which Mary Ann is mentioned as the executrix of the estate of her late husband, Henry Franklin, Jr.  He was a Revolutionary soldier.  Mary Ann secondly married Benjamin Arnold.  He was born about 1745 in Amherst Co., VA.  All the children were born in Amherst Co., VA.  (R‑6, R‑921)

Edward died in 1780.  He was a Revolutionary soldier. His name appears with the rank of sergeant in Muster and Pay Rolls of different companies of Capt. Samuel Jordan Cabell and Capt. Benjamin Taliaferro.  On Feb. 24, 1778, Edward Cox received his discharge from the Virginia Militia.  Margaret secondly married Thomas Morrison on 2 June 1783.  He died in Nelson Co., Va.  (R‑921)

Ann Higginbotham (37) was born about 1752.  She married Jacob Higginbotham, son of Joseph Higginbotham and Ann Smith, on 18 Oct. 1772.  The record of this marriage was obtained from an application for a pension made from Elbert Co., Ga. on 21 April 1855 by Jacob's son, John, for the heirs of Jacob Higginbotham because of Jacob's military service in the Revolutionary War.

Jacob died intestate in January 1836.  William Pulliam was appointed the administrator of his estate by an Elbert Co., Ga. court on 7 March 1836.  (R‑921)

(now Amherst Co.), Va., and died 1823 near Holmesville in Pike Co., Miss.  He married Mary Ann Cash before 1775 (probably about 1772).  Caleb moved to Elbert Co., Ga. (to that part that later became Madison Co., Ga.) in 1791.  His brothers and sisters had preceded him there by moving with their father, Benjamin, in 1784 to what became Elbert Co.  (R‑921)

(or Wilkes Co., Ga.).  He married Mary Gatewood, daughter of Larkin Gatewood of Amherst Co., Va., on 21 Jan. 1782.  She was probably dead in 1809, because Benjamin did not mention her in his will dated 20 May 1809.  The will was proved 3 Sept. 1810.

He served as a captain in the Revolutionary War, and was at the siege of Yorktown.  He moved from Va. to Ga., probably after 1783, since his name does not appear in the Amherst Co., Va. census records after 1783.  (R‑921)

Benjamin Coleman for them on that date.  Francis' brother Benjamin married Dolly's sister Mary.

William Graves (45) was born 9 (or 7) July 1755 in Virginia, and died 24 Feb. 1836 in Manack, Lowndes Co. (or Autauga Co.), AL.  He married Sarah ("Sally") Smith on 5 Nov. 1782 in Bedford Co., Va.  (Another source has said the marriage was in 1783 or 1784.)  She was a daughter of either Peyton Smith of Pittsylvania Co., Va., or Charles and Nancy Smith.  Sally was born in 1760 or 1761 and died 2 Oct. 1841.  They were both buried in the Manack Cem., Lowndes Co., AL.

According to R‑268, Sally was born 1761 in Bedford Co., VA, and died 12 Oct. 1841 in Lowndesboro, AL.  She first married William Baker.  She was a daughter of Charles Smith and Nancy ‑‑‑‑‑‑, and was descended from immigrant Christopher Smith as follows: Christopher1 Smith, b.c. 1601, arrived in the Returne at age 23 and was in the muster of Thomas Godby in 1624 for Elizabeth City[4], m.

William served as a wagon conductor of military supplies in John Fontaine's Co. of Henry Co. Militia, which on 11 May 1781 was ordered from Henry Co. to the assistance of Gen. Greene at Hillsborough, N.C.  After the Revolutionary War, he moved to Washington Co., GA and took up land, where he and his family lived until 1817.  There is on record in the Georgia State Archives at Atlanta, the following grant, which may have been his original land grant in Georgia: "Graves, Willam - 287-1/2 acres in Washington Co., 17 May 1784.  Warrant No. 1192, p. 4."  This portion of Washington Co. later became Oglethorpe Co.

In the winter of 1817, William Graves and most of his family moved from Oglethorpe Co., GA, and settled near Manack Station, Lowndes Co., AL, where he died.  His will is dated 23 Feb. 1836, and is recorded in Book C, vol. 3, p. 347, 1834-1838, at Prattville, Autauga Co., Ala.  All their children were born in GA.

Alabama Records, Vol. 206, Autauga County, Alabama, compiled by Kathleen Paul Jones Ganrud, abstracts William’s will.  His inheritors are: his grandson, Young William Graves, his wife, Sarah, and his “children and their heirs as follows: viz to the heirs of the body of Mary Alexander, the heirs of the body of Susan Clark, to Sally Varner and the heirs of her body; to Dorothy Fitzpatrick and the heirs of her body; to Martha Shelton and the heirs of her body; William Graves, Jr. and his heirs; to Charles Graves and his heirs; to David Graves and his heirs; to P.S.

CHILDREN OF FRANCIS GRAVES (21)

Francis Graves (65) was born about 1746 and died by 1806.  He married Martha Johnson on 19 Aug. 1783 (Henrico Co. Marriage Book).  She died by 1806.

Francis Graves, aged 36, a merchant, was listed in 1782 as having been a resident of Richmond, Va. for 7 months (Heads of Families, First Census of the U.S., 1790, State Enumerations of Va. from 1782 to 1785, p. 111).  He had dealings in several counties, and is found in Halifax and Louisa Co. records, as well as in Richmond.

His parentage is proved by the following: Essex Deed Book 34, p. 87, March 28, 1794, Francis Graves and Martha his wife of Richmond to James Sale of Essex for 130 pounds current money all that parcel of land in St. Ann's Parish which my father Francis Graves purchased of Thomas Davis March 8, 1761, beginning at land formerly owned by John Garnett decd. and by him sold to Francis Graves and others containing 99-1/2 acres, reserving 1/2 acre for a graveyard and liberty of traveling there on foot. Witnesses: E. Davis, James Spearman, Samuel Griffin.

Despite search, nothing definite is known of the place or date of death of Francis and Martha Graves, though both were dead by 1806.  In that year (Chancery Court, Richmond, Book 4, p. 560) John Addison and Elizabeth his wife, formerly Elizabeth Graves, Francis Graves and Samuel Graves, "which said Francis, William and Samuel are children of Francis Graves decd. and infant under the age of 21 by John Addison their guardian," conveyed to Joseph Higbee a certain lot in Richmond known as "Rof's Tenement."  With reference to these children of Francis, there is information about only one, Francis Jr., who never married and died in Goochland Co. in 1858.  In the 1850 census, he was listed as "aged 60, born in Va., farmer."  (R‑907)

He served in the Revolutionary War.  Rice Graves, rank not shown, Capt. Webb's Co., 7th Va. Regt., commanded by Col. Alexander McClenachan.  He enlisted for two years, date not shown.  His name first appears on the company muster roll covering a period from Dec. 29, 1776, dated May 21, 1777.  The company muster roll for Feb. 1778, dated Valley Forge, March 7, shows him discharged Feb. 14.  (Adjutant General's Office, War Dept., Washington, D.C.)

He lived in the Parish of St. James Northam and was a vestryman there in 1799.  In his will (Goochland Records, Deed Book 25, p. 97), dated Jan. 16, 1813, and proved nine years later, he mentions daughters Ann, Franky, Harriott and Spottswood; son James; granddaughter Eliza Nuckolds, daughter of Patsy Nuckolds; son Thomas E.; and wife Clary, who he desires "shall be maintained genteelly out of the whole of my estate."  (R‑907)

Peyton Smith Graves (227) was born 3 March 1799 in Lexington, Oglethorpe Co., GA, died after 1860, probably in Texas, and was buried in Texas (or AL or LA).  He first married Aurelia G. Bruce on 21 Sept. 1827 in Wilkinson Co., MS.  She died in 1829.  He may have married second ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Patterson in Baltimore, MD, but no record of this has been found.  He married third (or second) Joanna Brantley, daughter of Harris Brantley and Dorothy Brooks Minter.  She was born about 1804 in MD according to the 1860 census.  He has not been found in the 1850 census for AL, LA, MS or TX, but he is in the 1860 census for Palestine, Anderson Co., TX.  In this census, his initials are reversed as S. P., but it is definitely him, and his wife was born in MD.  Perhaps she had first married a Patterson and was a widow when she married Peyton.

Peyton was one of the first Methodist Protestant ministers in the state of Alabama.  (R‑265)

CHILDREN OF DAVID GRAVES (46) AND NANCY PINKARD

Lucy Graves (231) married William Witcher, son of William Witcher and Mary Dalton, on 9 Feb. 1818 in Franklin Co., VA.  Surety was her father, David Graves.  Lucy had apparently died by 1850, as William Witcher was then living with his daughter in Franklin Co., VA.  William was born about 1791 in VA, and died after 1850.  Their daughter Nancy was born in VA.

Lucy was a niece of Peyton Graves, who was born 1755 in Caroline Co., VA, died about 1836 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, married Charlotte Pinkard, in Pittsylvania Co., VA.  They lived in Franklin Co., VA before moving to Pittsylvania Co.  One of Peyton's sons, James, married Denny Witcher in 1818, and another son, Thomas, married Joanna Witcher in 1828.  (R‑470, R‑471)

Since their son, John, is identified with his wife's family's long attachment to and residence in Campbell Co. (VA? or TN?), they probably lived around there.  They seem to have been in Patrick Co., VA in 1830, and in Trigg Co., KY in 1850.  They settled in MO, probably Montgomery Co.  (R‑186, R‑188)

John Graves (234) was born in July 1794 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, and died in July 1844.  He married Mildred Hicks George on 9 May 1817 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.  She was born 13 Aug. 1797 (or July 1796) in Pittsylvania Co., and died after 1850.  They moved from Patrick Co., VA to Montgomery Co., MO in Dec. 1842.  (According to another version, they lived in Patrick Co. until 1834, then moved to Pittsylvania Co., and were in MO by Oct. 10, 1840.)  All their children except the last were born in Virginia.

One puzzling piece of information is that the 1860 census for Middletown, Prairie Twp., Montgomery Co., MO, dwelling 895, lists John Graves, 27, carpenter, Ann Graves, 20, William Graves, 23, Witcher Graves, 19, and James Graves, 18, all born in VA.  This appears to be some of the children of John Graves and Mildred George, and they all match except for John Pinkard Graves.  In addition to the age discrepancy of about 10 years for John P., he supposedly moved to Oregon about 1850.  In the 1870 census for the same place is a John Graves, 37 with wife Sarah, 23, and daughter Cora, 1.  Could the information for John Pinkard Graves be wrong?  (R‑179, R‑186, R‑335, R‑915)

William Graves (235) was born about 1795, and died 28 July 1841 in Montgomery Co., MO.  He married Lucy Berger, sister of Mildred Berger who married William's brother Washington, and daughter of Jacob Berger, on 12 (or 14) May 1818 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.  She was born about 1797.  He was a Justice of the Peace in Virginia.  They moved to Montgomery Co., MO about 10 Nov. 1837.

The 1830 census for Pittsylvania Co., VA, page 319, listed William Graves with 2 males under 5, 2 males 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 20-30 (probably a brother), 1 male 30-40 (William), 2 females under 5, and 1 female 20-30 (Lucy).  Living nearby in 1830 were George Berger, Thomas Graves, Peyton Graves Jr. and Peyton Graves Sr.  The 1840 census for Prairie Twp., Montgomery Co., MO, page 201, listed William Graves with 1 male under 5, 1 male 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 2 males 15-20, 2 males 20-30, 1 male 40-50 (William), 2 females 5-10, and 1 female 30-40 (Lucy).

Although some descendants say that William and Lucy had 6 children, the census records indicate there may have been more.  Perhaps 6 is the number of children who lived to be adults.  The names of David, Peyton, Jacob, Catherine, and William were provided by several sources.  The names of John, Samuel, Thomas and Jane are from R‑495.  (R‑4, R‑179, R‑186, R‑335, R‑915)

James Graves (238) was born about 1801 in VA, and died 23 Sept. 1859 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.  He married Denny (or Dinney) Witcher, daughter of John Witcher and Susan ‑‑‑‑‑‑, on 16 (or 21) May 1818 in Pittsylvania Co., Va.  She was born about 1801.  The wills of James Graves, dated 11 Sept. 1839, proved 17 Oct. 1859 (Pittsylvania Co., Va., W.B. 2, p. 313), and of his wife Denny, dated 7 Aug. 1867, proved 9 Oct. 1874 (W.B. 3, p. 121), mention children Susan, Francis, and James.  John Card Graves also mentions James, and also Lafayette (same as Francis), Thomas (could have been James T. A.), and America.  The Bible of James and Denny only mentions the two sons listed below.

The names given by John Card Graves are probably from family records, and thus perhaps the ones that were used by the family, whereas the ones appearing in legal documents would tend to be more formal names.  Therefore, there may not really be any disagreement between the two sets of names.

James and Dinney were in the 1850 census for Pittsylvania Co., VA, with sons Lafayette and Thomas still at home.  Dinney was in the 1860 census for Pittsylvania Co., VA, living next to the families of sons F. L. W. Graves and James T. Graves.  (R‑186, R‑913, R‑915)

George Morris married three times.  His first wife may have been Sally Biggers.  The four children listed below were probably by Susannah.  Children by his first wife may have included Dabney, Polly m. ‑‑‑‑‑‑ Musgrove, Sarah m. Wright Bibb, and Ann (possibly the same as Louisa).  (R‑258, R‑300)

Joanna (or Joannah) Graves (253) was born 11 March 1783. She married John Oakes on 14 April 1807 in Orange Co., Va.  He was born 22 Dec. 1781.

In a mimeographed book of Early Virginia Marriages is the following entry.  "7 April 1807.  John Oakes and Joanna Graves, daughter of Thomas Graves who is surety and makes oath Joanna is over 21.  Married 14 April by Rev. Nathaniel Sanders, Baptist."

In an article by Mrs. P. W. Hiden (R‑907, p. 668), it is stated that Joanna was one of the children of Richard and Susannah Graves.  Considering that Richard Graves died in 1797 when Joanna was only about 14 years old, it is reasonable to assume that the Thomas in the marriage record was her older brother rather than her father.

All the children of Joanna and John were born in Va., probably Orange Co.  The Oakes family sold their plantation in Orange Co., Va., and moved to Mansfield, Ohio in 1831.  (R‑156)

CHILDREN OF RICE GRAVES (67) AND CLARA SATTERWHITE

James M. Graves (261) married Mary M. Clements on 14 April 1807 in Goochland Co., Va.  James was not listed in the 1820 or 1830 censuses for Goochland Co., although in 1829 he with his wife Mary M. sold to Martin James land that had been bequeathed him by his father (Goochland Records); his mother Clara joined in the deed.  (R‑907)

Martha ("Patsy") Graves (262) married Andrew Knight Nuckolds (or Nuckols) on 8 March 1801 in Goochland Co., Va.  She must have died by 1813, since her daughter, rather than Martha, is named in her father's will of that year.  (R‑907)

Children - Nuckolds

  803.  Eliza Nuckolds

 

Thomas E. Graves (263) was born about 1790 or 1795, lived in Goochland Co., Va., and probably died between 1840 and 1850, since he was not listed in the 1850 census.  He married Nancy Carden of Nottaway on 17 May 1820 (Richmond Enquirer, 30 May 1820, p. 3, col. 6).  She was probably a daughter of Jesse Carden who married Clary Satterwhite on 30 July 1801 in Goochland Co., Va.

Thomas served in the War of 1812 as a private in Capt. William M. Holman's Co., 7th Regt. (Gray's), Va. Militia. He served from 28 Aug. 1814 to 19 Feb. 1815 (Adjutant General's Office, War Dept., Washington, D.C.).  (R‑907)

Children - Graves

  804.  John Graves, d.c. 1866.  Bur. at "Locust Dale", Goochland Co., Va.  The records of the War Dept. show that a John T. Graves, 1st Lt., Co. D, 44th Regt., Va. Infantry, Confederate States Army, enlisted 8 June 1861 at Isbells Store.  He was appointed from Va. as Captain, Assistant Commissary of Subsistence, C.S.A., 18 March 1862, to take rank 3 March 1862, and assigned to the 44th Regt., Va. Infantry, C.S.A.  Union records show that he was captured 3 April 1865 in hospital, imprisoned at Washington Street Hospital, Petersburg, Va., and was paroled by Provost Marshall of Petersburg, Va., 19 April 1865, as Captain on General William Tarry's Staff.

  805.  Susan A. Graves, m. Thomas Jefferson Epes Parrish, 14 Dec. 1849.

Lewis Coffey (271) was born 12 Jan. 1777 in Va., and died after 1850 in Gwinnett Co., Ga.  He married.  There is some question as to whether the last three children listed below are Lewis's.  (R‑922)

Sarah Coffey (272) was born 1 May 1779, probably in Wilkes Co., N.C., and died 26 Aug. 1842 in Ashe Co. (or Buncombe Co.), N.C.  She married Michael Israel, Jr., son of Michael Israel and Sarah Graves, on 26 Feb. 1800 in Wilkes Co., NC.  (Sarah and Michael are in genealogy 191, but it is very likely that Sarah was descended from genealogy 220.  Note the comment in gen. 191 that the family is very similar to genealogy 77, which was probably also descended from gen. 220.)  Michael was born in 1778 in Albemarle Co., Va., and died in 1866 in Buncombe Co., N.C.  While he was still a babe in arms, his parents moved to Wilkes Co., N.C., and settled on the North Fork of Warrior Creek of the Yadkin River.  This area of Wilkes Co. became a part of Caldwell Co. when it was created in 1841.

Michael, Jr. and Sarah appeared to be living with his parents in Wilkes Co. when the 1800 census was taken. They apparently left the county after 1805, and were living in Buncombe Co., N.C. by 1810.  Their first 3 children were born in Wilkes Co., N.C., and the others in Buncombe Co., N.C.  (R‑923)

CHILDREN OF WILLIAM W. GRAVES (236) AND MILDRED BERGER

David William Graves (739) was born 28 Feb. 1837 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, near the present town of Sandy Level, and died 26 Dec. 1918, at age 81, in Montgomery City, Mo.  In 1840, he moved with his parents from Va. to eastern Montgomery Co., Mo., where he grew to manhood on his father's farm near Price's Branch.

His principal teacher was his uncle, Judge David Nowlin.  He attended William Jewell College, and received his BA and MA degrees from the Univ. of Missouri in 1862.

He married Julia Ann Crockett, daughter of Rev. William Wallace Crockett (1987-1879) and Elizabeth (Gray) Smith (1997-1882), on 18 March 1863.  She was born 17 May 1841 in Pike Co., Mo., and died 12 July 1925 in Montgomery City, Mo.  They were both buried in the Montgomery City Cem.  Julia Ann's father was a Cumberland Presbyterian minister, physician, and farmer, of a pioneer Virginia and Tennessee family.  Col. David Crockett was a cousin.  Julia Ann was the essence of religious kindness.

Rev. David William Graves was licensed in 1862 and ordained in 1866 as a Baptist minister by Zion Baptist Church in Montgomery Co., Mo.  He served as pastor of Loutre, Zion, Liberty, Mount Pleasant, Middletown, Wellsville and Troy churches in the Bear Creek Association in that area.  He supervised and taught schools at Montgomery College and in LaGrange, Ky., and after 1882 in southeast Missouri, in Sedgwickville, Patton, and then for an extended period at Mayfield-Smith Academy (later Will Mayfield College).  This latter institution was just being founded at Marble Hill, Bollinger Co., Mo., and is the school his children attended.  Their "Forest Home" near Marble Hill was their home until 1900, when they returned to Montgomery City.

During those times, Rev. Graves preached at Sedgwickville, Smithville, Marquand, Patton, Lutesville and Marble Hill, and at Oak Ridge in the Cape Girardeau Association.  For three terms in the 1890's, he was superintendent and instructor at the Wetumka, Okla., Government Indian Territory School, assisted for short periods by his daughters Mildred and Sue Belle.

In his late years he wrote an autobiography preserving the recollections of his interesting life of honorable Christian service and education, including a trip with his father just after the Civil War to again see his Virginia relatives.  (Much of this information was published in Bollinger County, 1851-1976, p. 864.)  (R‑164, R‑915)

Sue moved to Marble Hill, Bollinger Co., Mo., with her family, and lived there from about 1882 to 1900 with her parents.  She attended Mayfield-Smith Academy in Marble Hill, where Rev. David W. Graves was an administrator and teacher.  She graduated as president of her class in 1897 from Hardin College, Mexico, Mo., and later participated in its "Hardin Spirit" alumnae group.  She taught school in Oklahoma where she lived with her sister, Mildred, wife of John Reck, a native of Bollinger Co., Mo.

She married Fred Thomson Couper on 23 May 1906 (?) in Montgomery City, Mo.  He was born in 1874 in Brechin, Scotland, migrated to Oregon about 1891, and died in 1955 in Wichita Falls, Texas.  They lived in Montgomery City, Mo. in 1906; Oklahoma City, Okla., 1906-1909; Fort Worth, Texas, 1909-1916; and Wichita Falls, Texas, 1916 on.

Fred was engaged in the mortgage loan business until his death.  Sue was a member of First Presbyterian Church of Wichita Falls, and was an early member of Colonial Dames of America, DAR, New Century Study Club, and the Women's Golf Assoc. of Wichita Falls Country Club.  She compiled a genealogy of the Graves and Crockett families and always thought fondly of Southeast Missouri, and especially Bollinger County, as her "beautiful childhood home".  (This is partly from Bollinger County, 1851-1976, p. 843.)  (R‑164)

[1] Mr. William Cooper (R-250) wonders whether this could be the Jane Graves who married John Coffey, rather than the daughter of Francis’ brother John.

[2] From “Beaufort, North Carolina History” by Mary Warshaw, at http://beaufortartist..blogspot.com/2007/11/richard-graves-lay-of-land.html.

[3] “Out of union” was a term meaning that one member of the marriage was not a Quaker, and the marriage was not sanctioned by the Quakers.

[4] From Adventurers of Purse and Person, 3rd edition.  This source does not give this Smith lineage, however.

[5] Martitia Oliver was a daughter of Durrett Oliver and Tabitha (said to be Winn), according to R‑290.

[8] These confusing overlapping time periods could probably be clarified by looking at the payroll records.

[11] R-268 gave a birthdate of 1843, and R-270 gave the 1848 date.  Also, R-268 gave her name as Caroline Susan, and R-270 gave it as Susan Caroline.

[12] Although R-268 gave his first name as Asbury, which was the usual spelling, R-270 said the name should be spelled Asbery because her great-grandfather always referred to him as Uncle Berrie; she has old letters in her possession written between the two of them.

[13] R‑472 stated that his middle name was Gillon, not R. or H. as had been given elsewhere.

[14] According to 1860 census.

[15] His death date from his wife's Confederate pension application.

[19] According to R-270.

[20] R-268 gave his name as Robert and R-270 gave it as Robinson.

[21] The 1860, 1900, and 1920 censuses gave his place of birth as TX, but the 1870, 1880, and 1910 censuses gave it as AL.  The 1920 census for his son Charlie gave the birthplace of Thomas as AL.  The 1920 census for his son Lee gave it as MS, and the 1930 census for Lee gave it as AL.
