DESCENDANTS OF STILLMAN GRAVES AND ELIZABETH H. ROBBINS

OF VT & WORCESTER CO., MA

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Stillman Graves (1) was born 4 July 1808 in Ludlow, VT, and died 15 Jan. 1885 in Littleton, Middlesex Co., MA of accidental drowning[1].  He married Elizabeth H. Robbins, daughter of Seth Robbins and Relief Rice, on 2 Oct. 1830.  She was born 15 Sept. 1813 in Littleton, MA, and died 19 Feb. 1892.  They were both buried in Rural Cem., Worcester, MA, and the gravestones are the source of their birth and death dates.  They were in the 1840-1880 censuses for Littleton, MA.  In the 1880 census they had 2 grandchildren living with them, George, 4, and Emily, 8.  He was a farmer.  All their children were born in MA.

It is probable that Stillman was a son of Benjamin Graves and Sally Tilden of VT (genealogy 271).  Benjamin was the only Graves person in the 1810 census of Ludlow, VT, and they had an unknown son born about 1804-1810.  Benjamin may be descended from immigrant Thomas Graves of Hartford, CT (genealogy 168).  (R‑1)
