     DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM GRAVES

GENERATION 1

William Graves (1), an original settler in America, was born in England. He may have been the William Graves who came to Massachusetts in 1645 (or 1635?) as a 13 year old boy, and who was listed with the family of John Upham. If so, he was born about 1632 It is likely that this boy was either coming to join relatives already in the Massachusetts Bay Colony or that he was an indentured servant. (According to R-2, William Graves sailed from Weymouth, England for Massachusetts Bay in 1635. The Rev. Joseph Hull, a native of Somersworth, England, probably had something to do with emigration of the Upham family.)

He married Elizabeth York, widow of his neighbor Richard York, about 1674. Richard was taxed at Dover, Strafford Co., NH as early as 1657, and died in 1674. William Graves first appeared in the public records of this country as a resident of Dover, NH, where he was taxed at Oyster River (now Durham), Strafford Co., 22 Sept. 1659. He was living at Portsmouth, Rockingham Co., NH in 1671. He was living in Exeter, Rockingham Co., NH in 1701, where a tract of land was granted to him in 1698. He made an agreement with his stepson, John York, on 8 June 1681 in relation to the estate of Richard York. He was wounded and his property at Oyster River demolished by the Indians and his application for relief was made to the Council of the province of New Hampshire on 8 Jan. 1694-5. He was living in Dover in 1704.

William Graves apparently later married the widow of Salathiel Denbo. William may also have had a first marriage with children before marrying Elizabeth York. (R-200, R-204)

GENERATION 2

CHILDREN OF WILLIAM GRAVES (1) AND ELIZABETH YORK

William Graves (2) was born about 1675. He was described as a farmer or husbandman (an old name for farmer). He married Margaret Redman, daughter of John Redman and Martha Cass, on 24 Sept. 1702 in Hampton, NH. He first appeared in the records in Exeter, NH, where he testified in court, in 1697. In 1701 he bought land in Exeter.

William Graves provided for each of his children in his will. His wife had apparently died before him. The will, dated 10 Sept. 1744 and probated 25 March 1747, gave Mary eight pounds in "bills of old Tenor", a little pot, fire shovel and tongs, and to Mary and Deliverance, a widow, the use of one room in his dwelling house, so long as they remained unmarried. Apparently they were young enough that they might be expected to marry. Since the father's will was made before Mary was married, we can only assume that she was the Mary Graves who married Stephen Hazelton (New Hampshire Probate Records, vol. 33, p. 210; Noyes, vol. 1, p. 283).

All their children were born at Exeter, NH. (R-200, R-202)

Children - Graves

+27. Benjamin Graves, b. 1765, m. Polly Prescott, 7 March 1792, d. 18 Nov. 1797.

28. Ruth Graves, m. Seth Johnson.

29. Mary Graves, d. 23 Oct. 1793.

 

Mary Graves (7) married Stephen Hazelton, son of Stephen Hazelton, Jr. and Emma Kent. Mary died 13 Nov. 1801 in Hebron, N.H. Stephen was born 28 Jan. 1706 in Bradford, Mass., and died 17 Aug. 1795 in Hebron, N.H. He was a schoolmaster.

Early in manhood Stephen moved from Tewksbury, Mass. to a place called Dunstable West Parish in the town of Hollis, N.H. Very few records from Dunstable, now Nashua, survive. He signed an appeal on 18 June 1747 for troops to protect the settlers, for this was on the western frontier, and Indian attacks were frequent. On March 20, 1755, he sold land in Hollis, N.H. to Isaac Stevens of Andover. Whether he moved to Cockermouth (later Hebron), N.H. at this time is not known, but he had moved there before 1775.

Stephen Hazelton was married twice. The only biography found of him states that the name of neither wife is known. However, it is known from her death record that his second wife was Mary Graves. By his first wife, Stephen had one son, Samuel, born in 1735, and died in 1812 at Hebron. Samuel was a soldier in the French and Indian War, a member of the New Hampshire Provincial Congress, and a farmer at Hebron.

All efforts to find when and where Stephen Hazelton and Mary Graves were married failed. They were not married in Hollis, and no family named Graves lived there. Apparently they were married in some town in which the records were destroyed. All people of that generation named Mary Graves were checked, in any N.H. records and in any Massachusetts town near Hollis. There were just two. One married in Andover, Mass. The other was Mary, the daughter of a William Graves who died in Exeter in 1746 or 1747.

It should be emphasized that it cannot be proved that this second Mary Graves was the wife of Stephen Hazelton. However, since Exeter is one of the towns where the records have not been well kept, and there are no marriage records in Exeter for this period, there seems to be little question.

All the children of Stephen and Mary were born in Hollis, N.H. (R-5, R-202)

Margaret Graves (9) married Benjamin Eastman, brother of Edward Eastman who married her sister Deliverance, and daughter of Samuel Eastman and Elizabeth Scriven (or Scribner), on 16 Aug. 1733 in Kingston, Rockingham Co., NH. Benjamin was born 13 July 1710. He and his brother Edward were the youngest of 12 children, and were probably born in Salisbury, Essex Co., MA like the first 9 children. All the children of Margaret and Benjamin were born in Kingston, NH. (R-21, R-24, R-25)

CHILDREN OF JOSEPH GRAVES (23) AND MARTHA SMART

Joseph Graves (82) was born 2 March 1762, and died 12 Jan. 1827 in Kittery, York Co., Maine (just across the state line from Portsmouth, NH). He was a shipwright of Newmarket, Rockingham Co., NH. He served in the Continental Army from Newmarket in July 1780. He was in the 1790-1810 censuses for Newmarket, and in Kittery, ME in the 1820 census. He was called "of Newmarket, Stratham".

He married Elizabeth ("Betsey") Badger about 1785 or 1786, probably in Newmarket, NH. She was also born 2 March 1762 (or possibly between 1755-1760), probably in Newmarket, and died 24 Jan. 1827. She was a sister of Master Shipwright William Badger, and a daughter of William Badger Sr. and Anstiss Emerson.

All their children were born in Newmarket, NH. John Card Graves also listed an Austress Graves, born 11 April 1798, but it is likely that this was a misreading of the middle name of Mary Agnes Graves, although it could have been a daughter named for Elizabeth Badger's mother, and perhaps a twin of Mary.

She was born 22 Jan. 1837 in Albion, ME, and died 12 March 1927 in CA.

His obituary follows:

In his eighty-first year, "full of years and honor," Mr. Edward Small Graves died at his home in St. George, on Tuesday evening of last week, April 12. He was a man well known through all this section of the state, and one of whom naught but good can be said. By his upright and useful life and spotless integrity, he won the respect and esteem of all, and those of us who were permitted to know him well and see the many true and noble qualities and the warm and benevolent fooling displayed in his daily walk and conversation, loved him well and were proud and happy to call him friend. In his last moments, he recalled with satisfaction and pleasure that he had no enmities with any of his fellow men to be composed, and he died, as he had lived, in peace with all mankind. His memory will ever be tenderly cherished by many friends who knew and appreciated his sterling manhood and admirable character.

Mr. Graves was born on October 5, 1823, in the old homestead of the family, where he had spent the greater part of his life, and where he died. He was one of that band of brave pioneers the story of whose adventures and achievements forms one of the most thrilling and important of our country's history, the "Forty-Niners" or "Argonauts," who first developed the now rich and populous empire of California. In 1849, soon after the discovery of gold in that then distant and unknown land, he started, with a party of some ten or twelve men of this vicinity for the new El Dorado. Among those who accompanied him, were Capt. Edward C. Spaulding and Mr. Joshua Thorndike, of South Thomaston, and William Sayward of Rockland. We have not the other names, but we believe that Mr. Graves was the last survivor of the party. Mr. Sayward afterward became a wealthy and well known banker in California. They went by steamer to New York, where they chartered a small vessel, in which they went to a Mexican port and crossed to the Pacific coast and there took another vessel and made their way to the then new mining district, and took up claims at the place where the flourishing city of Placerville afterwards arose, but then known by the euphonious designation of "Hangtown," from the frequency with which primitive justice was dealt out to evil doers by the famous Vigilance Committee. Mr Graves was an active and respected member of this body of brave and honest men who eliminated the murderers and robbers of the settlement by methods that, while not warranted by law, have been vindicated by time and results. Nine desperadoes were hanged to the limb of an oak tree that is still standing and known as the "Old Civilizer." Mr. Graves was here about two years, and was very successful, having made a great deal of money mining. He came home with the intention of arranging his affairs and returning to California and settling there permanently. After a brief stay, he left with three companions to make a second visit to the land of gold. Those who accompanied him were Messrs. Ralph Chapman and George Hall, of Rockland, and Asa Coombs, of South Thomaston. Mr. Coombs is the only one of the party now living. They went by way of the Isthmus, and sailed from New York in the steamer Daniel Webster, on her first trip. This boat was owned by Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, and was the first of the ocean steamers built by him. Mr. Vanderbilt made the trip to Panama with them. In crossing the Isthmus, Mr. Graves contracted Chagres fever, and came near dying. He recovered sufficiently to continue his journey, but on his arrival in California his health was much broken, and he was advised that to remain would mean a speedy death. He therefore returned home, and took up his residence at the 'Keag village, South Thomaston, where he opened a store.

This was at the time of the great shipbuilding boom in this section, when eleven large vessels were built in South Thomaston in one year. Mr. Graves, in company with Messrs. Shepherd Small, Richard Hayden, and William Graves, entered extensively into shipbuilding, and several first-class ships were built in their yard. Among them was the famous ship 'Pathfinder." With most of the other men engaged in that business at that time, they were swamped financially by the failure of the Shipbuilders' bank, which swept away the greater part of the considerable fortune that Mr. Graves had accumulated, and put an end to the business. He then returned to the old homestead, and resided there during the remainder of his life.

In 1877, when the Black Hills' gold craze broke out, he organized a party to explore the alleged gold fields in Nebraska, the Dakotas and Wyoming. The party included Messrs. Charles Luce, of South Thomaston; C. E. Paul, and F. E. Small, of Rockport; C. W. Livingston, of Rockland; Ed. Sherman, of Head of the Bay; and two men from Vinalhaven, one of whom, named Hill, was murdered for his money and valuables in Haywood, South Dakota. The party trailed by wagon train from Sidney, Nebraska, to Haywood, a distance of some 300 miles, but like most of the expeditions of that time, the search for gold was unsuccessful, and they returned home within the year.

CHILDREN OF SAMUEL GRAVES, JR. (130)

George M. Graves (284) was born 4 Oct. 1821 and died 31 Oct. 1883. He first married Mary A. ------. He secondly married Julia ------. John Card Graves stated that George's widow, Mary A., died 12 Aug. 1889 at Exeter, N.H., aged 66 years, 4 months.

According to Mr. Arthur L. Graves, there is good reason to doubt the statement that George's widow, Mary A., died in Exeter in 1889. The Exeter Town Clerk wrote that he had no record of such a death. Moreover, according to Robert E. Eliason in his booklet Graves and Company, Musical Instrument Makers, it is said that: "Sometime before 1870 George M. Graves was married again, evidently to a woman of some wealth." Also, George M. Graves and his last wife, Julia, were both buried in Lot 3212, Forget-Me-Not Path, in the Forest Hills Cemetery in Boston, Mass. Julia died in 1911.

Arthur L. Graves wrote that as a boy he knew Julia Graves as Aunt Julia, and that she visited him and his parents in Wells River, Vt., more than once. In 1981 he still had her photograph showing her sitting on the front steps with the rest of the family.

"Another question about George M. Graves is: Vital Statistics in the State House in Boston show that he died in Cambridge and that his occupation was that of Master Mariner. It is hard to believe the statement about his having a Mariner ticket because other data gathered by Dr. Eliason was that he spent much, if not all, of his adult life working with his father, Samuel Graves, Jr., in the production of musical instruments."

George M. Graves had no children. (R-1, R-200)

 

Edgar Clay Graves (291) was born 20 July 1848 at Winchester, N.H., and died 11 June (or 14 July) 1914 in Wells River, Vt.

Amanda Sibly (or Sibley or Silsby) Graves (462) was born 17 Nov. 1840 at Hancock Point, Maine, and died 2 Dec. 1889. She married Capt. John Ball, son of Samuel Ball 2nd and Pauline A. Gordon, on 23 July 1861. He was born 26 April 1823 and died 28 Aug. 1905, both in Hancock, Maine, and was buried in Riverside Cem., Hancock.

According to A Family Island in Penobscot Bay, The Story of Eagle Island, pages 236-238: "The astounding memory of Harold E. Ball, 92-year-old son of Capt. John Ball, has provided some interesting and valuable information concerning his father and his brother, Capt. Howard T. Ball, both of whom were keepers of the Eagle Island Light (in Penobscot Bay, Maine)....

As a young man, Capt. John Ball attended the North Yarmouth Academy, where he studied navigation. He then went to sea as a mate on a sailing vessel. He was licensed as a ship captain and was skipper of a square-rigged vessel at the age of 23. For a number of years, he served as captain of square-riggers sailing from New York to various world ports.

Apparently as he passed the middle years of his life, his interests shifted from the sea to lighthouse keeping. He entered the Lighthouse Service as keeper of Heron Neck Light, which is located on the southern end of Green Island and marks the approach to Carvers Harbor from the southwest. In 1883, at the age of 60, he began a 30-year period of service for the Ball family at the Eagle Island Light. Both John Ball and his son Howard were at the light for 15-year periods.

Capt. Ball, according to reports, was the 'old sea captain, toe-the-line type of person' and ran a businesslike establishment. His relations with the islanders were excellent, and he was well-liked. It is interesting to note that he had interests other than the sea and lighthouses. His son Harold recalls that the captain was very much interested in horse racing and never missed a race if it was within reasonable distance. His wife died in 1889, while he was still stationed at the light. He retired in 1898 and lived at the light with his son Howard until the time of his death in 1905. He was buried in the family plot at Hancock Point." (R-4, R-201)
