~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
in an email from cousin John Graves
Regarding the work that Joe Lieby has done for me so far, he has managed to identify, or, I should say, corroborate, the identity of John Graves' parents. While on a trip to the NYSHA library in Cooperstown in the early 1990's, I was reviewing the actual census records for 1830 in St. Lawrence Co., NY. Those records included John Graves and his family. All but one of them fit into the age brackets that they should have according to family lore. Even more astonishing was that there was an older couple living next door: Robert Graves and his wife. Joe Lieby, while on a trip to the LDS FHC in Salt Lake City last Fall managed to come up with a record that identifies Robert's wife and their children, including my GGG-Grandfather, John Graves. Here is what Joe Lieby had to say on this subject in his Report to me:

"Records for the Graves family were found in the registers of Rev. Daniel Nash, an Episcopal missionary who initially traveled to Otsego County and neighboring counties in those early years. The Rev. Nash reports that he was the first Episcopal clergyman to visit the northern part of St. Lawrence County when he visited in 1816. His records cover the years 1797-1827. Among the records of baptisms for the year 1816 are several for the family of Robert and Edy Grace [Grave]. The misspelling of the name in the records is clarified in the next record when the baptism of Edy Grave is recorded. Three children of Robert and Edy as well as Edy herself were baptized on 31 January 1816. The following information is provided:

Name of Baptized:Date of Birth:
John [child]June 9, 1802
Mary Ann [child]August 17, 1805
Hannah [child]March 23, 1811

Edy [mother]February 20, 1779"

The Date of birth for John matches what I knew from family lore.

I note that, because of the use of "Grave" and "Grace" as surnames, this record would never nave been found doing a computerized search of digitized databases. I did go on the NEHGS web site shortly after learning of this information and searched on "Edy Grave" just to see what would happen. This one record is the only hit that resulted!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Her birth date and the names and dates of birth of their children is in “Father Nash’s Record of Baptisms, 1816” from a church in Cooperstown, Otsego Co., NY (microfilmed by the LDS Church, where the surname was incorrectly indexed as Grace).

Robert Graves could not be unambiguously identified in the 1810 census, but he was in the 1820 census for Potsdam, St. Lawrence Co., NY, page 68, with 1 male 45+ (Robert), 1 male 16-26 (John), 1 female under 10, and the rest of the page missing. He was in the 1830 census for Potsdam, St. Lawrence Co., NY, page 148, incorrectly indexed as Grous, with 1 male 60-69, and 1 female 50-59. Immediately after him in the listing was John Graves, with 1 male under 5, 1 male 20-29, 1 female under 5, 1 female 5-9, and 1 female 20-29. (R-1)

Name: Mary Jane Gilpin Age: 6 Estimated birth year: abt 1924 Relation to head-of- house: Daughter Father's Name: Ernest Gilpin Mother's Name: Margaret Gilpin Home in 1930: Fort Scott, Bourbon, Kansas
Janie told me this story herself. On the phone in the summer of 1999. She and Jake were gpoing overseas, and she needed a birth certificate. When she finally recieved the certificate she found her birth certificate had her name listed as Jaquelene, not Mary Jane. She went to school, married both times, had jobs, and paid taxes as Mary Jane, she chose to remain Mary Jane. Mary Jane developed MS later in life, Rich her third husband loved her and waited on her hand and foot.. Lolita and I recieved an email from brother John that Janie had died no real explanations. I called Cousin Peggy and was told: They were found dead the week before Thanksgiving in the bathroom of their house. She was on the toilet he was kneeling beside her. It appeared they had simultaneous heart attacks.
