DESCENDANTS OF LOUISA GRAVES AND ARBA ANDREWS OF ONEIDA CO., NY & IL

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Louisa Graves (1) was about 1797 in Whites Town (or Whitestown), Oneida Co., NY, and died after 1850 in Jefferson Co., IL.  She married Arba Andrews, son of Nathaniel Seymour Andrews and Abigail Rice, perhaps about 1820, probably in Whitestown, Oneida Co., NY.  He was born 7 (or 5) March 1797 in Whitestown, Oneida Co., NY, was baptized 30 July 1797 in the Presbyterian Church, New Hartford, Oneida Co., NY, died 9 Feb. 1861 in Marion Co., IL, and was buried in Old Covenanter Church Cem., IL.  All their children were born in Jefferson Co., IL.

The name of her father may have been George Graves.  There was a George Graves in the 1814 census of landowners in Whitestown.  Louisa’s oldest son was named George, and there seems to have been a custom in the family to name the oldest son after the wife’s father.  George Graves was in the 1820. 1830, 1840, and 1850 censuses for Whitestown, Oneida Co., NY.  The 1850 census showed him as born about 1778 in CT, with wife Roxana, born about 1784 in CT.  The 1820 census listed him with 1 male under 5, and 1 female 16-26, who could have been Louisa.  The 1830 census listed him with one male 15-20, and the 1840 census showed him living near Elijah H. Graves, age 20-30, who may have been his son.

There was no George Graves in the 1800 federal census for Whitestown, but there was a Jacob Graves with a daughter in the right age bracket, and living nearby was Cornelius Graves.  Jacob was a son of Cornelius, was descended from John Graves of Concord, MA (genealogy 166), but is not known to have had a daughter named Louisa.  (R‑1, R‑3)
