I will also try my names, etc., again. I am searching for my husbands
family. Elijah Graves b 1813 in TN. He was in Jackson Co AL by at least
It appears this family lived in Stevenson, Jackson Co AL.
I know there were Graves families in Blount, Madison and Marshall Co's AL at
the same time. I do not know if Elijah fits into any of those families.
Elijah Graves 20/30
one male <5
one female 15/20
On the 1850 census District #19:
Elijah age 38 TN farmer
Mary 23 TN
John 7 AL
Silas 5 AL
Standeford 13 AL
Frances(f) 9 AL
Robert 3 AL
Rebecca 0/12 AL
1860 census Div #1 Stevenson P.O.
Mary A. 33
Rebecca A. 10
Samuel M. 7 AL
Sarah 5 AL
Henry H. 1 AL
1870 census Stevenson P. O.
Jos. L. Adkinson age 5 AL
1870 John R. Graves b 1844 was in AR and married to Martha Jane Hammon from
DeKalb Co AL
1880 John R. Graves was in Palo Pinto Co TX. Also there were his siblings,
Silas, Samuel, Sarah and Henry.
I also found in Vol 19 of the Alabama Records, Jackson Co:
"JOSEPH DUDLEY deceased. Deed/GEORGE S. JOHNSON and wife, CYNTHIA JOHNSON,
of Titus County, Texas, power of attorney to ANDREW ROGERS to collect from
estate of said deceased. ELIJAH GRAVES, admr. JOSEPH DUDLEY died in
Jackson County, Alabama leaving a will naming three heirs, of whom CYNTHIA
BARRIER was one heir. 20 September 1847. WILLIAM B. TAYLOR and wife, SARAH
M. TAYLOR, also of Titus County, Texas make power of attorney to same. 15
I do not know who the 5 yr old Jos Adkinson was or the Joseph Dudley that
Elijah was the admr. for his estate.
I would love to find someone else searching for this Graves family or
anything that anybody would know abt them.
