DESCENDANTS OF ABIGAIL GRAVES OF ENGLAND AND HARTFORD, CT

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Abigail Graves (1) married William Andrews.  He died in 1659 at Hartford, CT.  She then married Nathaniel Barding of Hartford.

According to Dr. Jack T. Spencer (R‑1), "Abigail Graves had a most interesting family history in Hartford, CT.  She was first married to a William Andrews who died at Hartford in 1659.”

"After the death of her first husband, Abigail Graves Andrews married Nathaniel Barding (Bearding, Berden) of Hartford.  A daughter, Sarah Barding (Berden), was born to this second marriage.  Sarah married Thomas1 Spencer, one of the founding fathers of Hartford.  A son of Thomas1 Spencer, Thomas2 Spencer, married Esther Andrews.  In short, we have a case where Thomas2 Spencer married the daughter of his grandmother from an earlier marriage (to William Andrews)."

The inventory of the estate of William Andrews was taken by Edward Stebbing, George Grave, and John Barnard.  The will, dated 1 April 1659, was witnessed by Edward Stebbing and George Grave, and stated, "I doe make Abigail, my wife, Executrix, and I doe Intreat my friend Edward Stebbinge and my Brother George Grave to assist and to see this my Will performed."

The inventory of the estate of Nathaniel Berding was taken by Paul Peck, George Grave, and Caleb Stanly.  The will, dated 7 Jan. 1673, was witnessed by George Grave and Thomas Olcott.

There is obviously a close relationship between George Grave(s) and Abigail Graves, almost certainly Abigail is either his sister or his daughter.  Since George was born about 1600 and Abigail may not have been born until as late as 1620 (based on the date of her first marriage), she could be his daughter.  However, based on the fact that Abigail is not mentioned in the will or estate settlement of George Graves and that the will of William Andrews calls him "brother" (probably meaning brother-in-law), it is almost certain that Abigail and George were sister and brother.

As we search for the English ancestry of Deacon George Graves, we now know that he may be the person recorded as George Grave, freeholder in the Borough of Hertford, England, in 1621 (or he may have been from Braintree, Essex, England); that he had a sister-in-law, Anna Graves, b.c. 1583, who lived in London and probably died in 1676; that he probably had a sister, Sarah Graves, who married Richard Lord of New London, CT; and that he probably had a sister, Abigail Graves, discussed above.

Since many of the earliest settlers of Hartford, CT were from Newe Towne (Cambridge), MA, including William Andrews, both George Grave(s) and Abigail Graves may also have followed that route.

An article by Donald Lines Jacobus in The American Genealogist, vol. 35, pp. 55-59 (R‑100), is considered to be the definitive work on Abigail Graves and William Andrews.  Jacobus states: “It is certain that William was in Hartford before 1640 when he became schoolmaster, and in fact he had a child born there in 1638.  Although many of the Hartford settlers came from Cambridge, I think he was a different man from the William Andrews of Cambridge whose wife Mary died there 19 Jan. 1639/40.  One reason for this conclusion is that William’s wife Abigail is the proven mother of William’s three sons — proven by William’s will which called the children “our” children, as well as by the fact that Abigail’s second husband gave them legacies, and finally by a deed of Abigail Barding which calls John, Thomas and Samuel Andrews her sons...”  William Andrews “certainly married Abigail, most probably a sister of George Grave (later called Graves), Sr., of Hartford, but possibly sister of Grave’s unknown first wife.”  (R‑1, R‑100)

There seem to be some differences of opinion among researchers about this part of the family.  For instance some people claim that Elizabeth Mascraft marrie son Samuel and some say she married son Thomas or William.  More complete research is needed.  (R‑2, R‑3, R‑100)

Jack Taif Spencer (235) was born 23 Sept. 1912 in Mantua, Portage Co., OH, and died 16 Sept. 2001 in De Kalb, De Kalb Co., IL.  He married Edith Myrtle Woolley, daughter of George Aitcheson Woolley and Nora Belle Jackson, on 4 April 1934 at Beloit, KS.  She was born 1 Feb. 1912 in Penn, Osborne Co., KS, and died 7 June 2002 in De Kalb, IL.

Jack was educated in the public schools of Mantua and East Cleveland, OH.  Later he graduated from Kent State Univ. with a B.S. summa cum laude, the first graduate to attain such an honor at KSU.  His higher education continued at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) with an M.S. in Plant Genetics, and at the Ohio State Univ. where he earned a Ph.D. in Plant Science.  His formal career in science continued at Hiram College, OH, and the Univ. of Kentucky at Lexington.

With the onset of World War II, Jack served as a Commander in the Amphibious Forces of the Pacific Fleet.  He was the leader of Beach Party Team 57 which participated in the assaults on Guam, Leyte (Philippines), and Okinawa.  At the conclusion of WW II, he returned to the Univ. of Kentucky as a research agronomist.  In 1949, he joined the newly activated Central Intelligence Agency as a specialist on Russian scientific developments during the height of the Cold War.  He served in this capacity until 1961.

After leaving the CIA, Jack was appointed Program Director for Specialized Facilities in the National Science Foundation in Washington.  In this endeavor, he supervised grants for many large science installations on university campuses throughout the nation as well as for marine stations, biological field stations, and national museums.

In 1968, Jack joined the Organization for Tropical Studies, a consortium of 26 leading universities, as its first Executive Director.  The headquarters were located in both Miami and San Jose, Costa Rica.  In 1972, Jack became the first Director of Development and Federal Relations at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania.  Since retirement in 1977, Jack has worked on the history of many of his ancestral lines, including the Spencers, Derthicks, and Taifs.

Edith was born 1 Feb. 1912 in Osborne, KS.  She spent her childhood years in Osborne until enrolling in Kent State University in 1931.  In the next few years after marriage she worked as a field assistant and laboratory microtechnician with Jack at the Ohio State Univ. and the Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station at Wooster.  Some years later, she acted as the administrative supervisor for the OTS headquarters in Miami.  In later years she has conducted extensive historical and genealogical studies on many family lines in her own ancestry as well as that of Jack’s ancestral history.  She has had a special interest in her maternal grandmother’s Burgess and Jackson lines and her paternal Woolley ancestry.
