>Subject: Graves family in Texas
>I am looking for information on my Graves family. I know that they came to
Texas between 1850 and 1860. 1860 Census information shows:
>Robert B. Graves 38, stockfarmer, value of real estate 3,400; personal
>spouse: Frances 41, housekeeper, SC
> Nathan M, 15, herdsman, AL
> Mary Eliz. 13, MS
> Martha Frances, 10, MS
> Sarah L 8, AL
> Jerusha 6, TX
>Mary Elizabeth and Martha Frances married twin brothers, Charles and Thomas
>Jerusha married John Ackey and had a girl named Mary. Martha Frances and
Thomas had a girl named Martha Jane, Jane married Lee Grant (LeGrant?)
Jarratt. The family moved around some, in 1860 they were in Erath Co. Other
counties that have shown up are Grayson, Kaufman, Navarro, among others.
Martha Frances Graves Carter stated in her civil war pension application
that her family came from Lauderdale Co. in MS to Texas.
>Any information would be appreciated. Thanks! Pat pfarris(a)horizon.hit.net
Received marriage record for Wm.Bye Whitacre, that Erath County said they
had no record of. Sent in 2nd request with money, & they found it. So don't
give up. This happened to me once before & it took 9 yrs, before I wrote
back. Now I know keep trying if you think it might be there.
Looking for info on JWH Farley, & J.J. Reed in Erath co ca 1890 Thanks Lana
