Notes


"They moved to NC in that part which is now Caswell Co. NC and settled on County Line Creek near Yanceyville, NC. Deeds of property there are dated 4 Oct 1771 and 2 Apr 1772. He was representative in the state Assembly in 1788-1793 and a member of the State Convention to consider the Federal Constitution in 1788 and 1789."


"Named in Settlement of the estate of Thomas Graves 1768. The following information is taken from Louise Graves' wonderful book about the Graves family: "In the year 1753 or 1754, John Graves, his wife and 4 children, moved from Spotsylvania County, Virginia to that sparely settled area of Orange County N. C.. which in 1777 became Caswell County. His sister Eleanor, husband Thomas Kimbrough and family, moved there about the same time.


Land was acquired by John Graves in Orange Co: 630 acres by deed from Hugh Dobbin; early grants of 21 acres on Ready Fork, 394 acres on Country Line Creek, and 457 acres on Country Line Creek. Later grants in Caswell County were made to him. Mrs. Charles Iverson Graves, whose husband was a great-grandson of John Graves stated that his "home was on the eminence quite near the public road leading from Greensboro to Milton, NC."


Louisa Co, Rec. Deed Book D1/2, p. 133, references "John Graves of N.C., eldest son and heir at law of Thos. Graves of Spots. Co., he confirms to Wm. Pettus, who was one of his father's executors, the sale of a tract of land and a mill lately belonging to Thomas Graves."


The petition reads: "Novr. 22, 1782, Jno. Graves of North Carolina, eldest son and heir at law of Thos. Graves of Spots. Co., Va. to Wm. Pettus of Va. Whereas, sd. Thos. Graves, decd. by his last Will and Testament, after certain legacies were paid, directed the remainder of his estate equally divided among all his children of their heirs, but did not empower his executors to convey the same, the title so far, therefore, remains vested in sd. John Graves, as eldest son and heir at law, etc., and it being found necessary to sell and convey certain tracts of land in Spots. Co., whereof sd. Thomas Graves died seized, etc., this indenture witnesseth, the John Graves, for the sum of L$451, gold or silver, to be paid by the said Pettus to the Executors of the sd. Thomas Graves, the sd.John Graves hereby conveys to the sd. Pettus 399 acres in Spotsylvania Co, etc. ... Witnesses, Joseph Graves, John Graves, William Graves, Jr., John Arnold, John W. Pettus, April 17, 1783." (Spots. Co. Rec. Deed Bk K , 1782-85, p. 372, Crozier.).



The name of John's first wife is not known. His oldest children were Thomas, James (died unmarried), Ann (who married Barlett Yancey, Sr.) and John Herndon Graves.


After John Graves married Isabella Lea, they had the following children: Mary m. John Kerr; Barzillai; Solomon; Azariah; and Isabella who m. Thomas Slade. This differentiation as to the mothers of the children is based on the painstaking study of Dr. John Goodwin Herndon, which provides inferential but conclusive proof that Isabella Lea Graves, who m. John Graves, Sr., was not old enough to have been the mother of his older children. She was born after 1737 as the birth of her eldest sister, Nancy, was 1837. Isabella Lea would have been only 8 or 9 years older than John Herndon Graves, her stepson, who was born in 1746. Isabella Lea was the daughter of James and Ann Herndon Lea.


John Graves, Sr., has been confused with his son John Herndon Graves (who is generally shown in official records as John, Jr., John and John, Sr. after the death of his father) as being representative in the House of Commons in the NC General Assembly, 1788-1791-1792, and a member of the State Conventions to consider the Federal Constitution in 1788 and 1789 as a representative from Caswell County....


John Graves died intestate. The exact date of his death is unknown. Administration Bonds, however, were filed with the Caswell Co. Court Jan. 18, 1792, appointing Azariah Graves and Solomon Graves executors of their father's estate, with John Williams, Esq. and Jesse Carter named as bondsmen.


The March 30, 1792 Caswell Court: "ordered that administration of the estate of John Graves, decd., be Granted to John & Thomas Graves Jointly with their Brothers Solomon & Azariah Graves, who qualified accordingly...."


The inventory of the estate of John Graves is in Caswell Co. Will Bk. B, p. 459. The originals are in the NC Archives in Raleigh filed under "Caswell County Estate Papers-John Graves". They read as follows:
"An Inventory of the Estate of John Graves, Sr. Late of Caswell County Deceased. Taken at the late dwelling house of said Dec'd on the 20th day of March 1792- Negroes - 17; Horses - 17 head; Cattle - 81 head; Hogs- 169 head; 1 wagon, 1 wagon (stage); sheep 25 head; 1 still; crop of corn, tobacco, hemp, etc. Sundry Plantation tools, cash in hard money $270. A riding chair and horse given to the widow by consent of all the legatees (extraordinary) also one smith's anvil & Bellows given to Barzillai Graves by consent of the legatees & quantity Cyder." Legatees listed as: Isbell Graves, Azariah, Thomas, Barzillai, John & Solomon Graves, John Kerr, Ann Yancy and Thomas Slade.


Also an Inventory of that part of the Estate which was left to the widow during her life: "4 feather beds & furniture, one black walnut table, 15 chares, 1 looking glass, 2 sugar boxes, 2 chests, 3 trunks, parcel old books, 1 spice morter, 1 case and bottles, 6 jugs, 2 batter rolls, 17 earthen plates, 4 bottles, 2 setts cups & saucers, 1 box iron etc., 1 flatt iron, fire tongs & shovel, 2 glass tumblers, 1 vinegar cruet, 2 washington tubbs, 4 pails, 1 churn, 2 old cotter wheels, 2 flax ditto, 19 pewter plates, 6 pewter dishes, 15 spoons, 10 basons, 2 cases of knives & forks, 1 tea kettle, 1 coffee pot, 1 small bowl, 1 pint mug, 1 black jack, 4 potts, 2 skillets.
Also an Inventory of the part of the Estate that has not been divided: "4 new hogsheads, 18 old ditto, 8 cyder casks, 2 small ditto, 2 powdering tubs, 3 small barrels, 1 iron riddle, 1 wood ditto, 7 sacks bags, 5 bee hives, 2 pair steel yards, 2 small barrels, 2 old shott guns, quantity of salt, 1 grind stone, small barrel nails, 1 pair money scales, 2 gimbletts,, 1 whip saw, 2 cross cutt saws, 1 old bearsharo & coulter, parcel reap hooks, 2 sithes & cradles, parcel old files, 1 steel trapp, 3 iron wedges, 2 foot adds, smiths tongs & hammers, 1 old stone hammer, 1 smith's vise, 2 small hides leather, 2 raw hides, some bells."


The inventories above are shown as photocopies in Louise Graves' book. They bear the signatures of the legatees, all of whom actually signed their names (as opposed to making their marks), thereby providing some evidence that they were at least educated enough to sign their names, something that cannot be assumed for the majority of people in the rural South at that time.


According to Caswell court minutes dated Jan. 1787, John Graves, Sr., conveyed 102 acres to John Kerr.


The 1784 tax listing for Caswell Co. lists John Graves as living in the St. David's district of the county, owning 1690 acres of land and having 13 black polls [whatever that meant--I suspect it meant 13 black male slaves over age 21.] The land is listed as being located on Country Line Creek."

"We know his natural parents surname was BELL. He was adopted by William and Mary Ann Rowe when he was age 2. abt 1882".
"One of his most notable accomplishments was his discovery of the first oil well in northern Louisiana in 1918, known as the Homer Oil Field. He was also active in the development of the El Dorado, Arkansas Oil Field in 1921 and Rodessa and East Texas Oil Fields in 1928-1930. He also loved race horses. He owned a number of them, Oil Cook, Little Hope and Oil Man. Oil Man won a race at Saratoga Handicaps for a purse of $5000. During their marriage, there were seven children born. William Kirby, Isham Grady, Lora Sybil, Olmer James, Eula Grace, Mary Eunice and John Raymond. They lived in Monahans, TX, Dallas, TX, Vivian/Shreveport, LA. Joann and "Will" (called by his family) were divorced sometime later and he married Corrie Bradford and resided in Shreveport, LA until his death while in the Pines Sanatorium (His donation to the city) from Tuberculosis. He is buried in Vivan, LA. We would love any information you may have regarding his natural parents. Nancy Jones gatekpr44@aol.com


I knew Will Rowe when I was a child, family says he adored me: He was an oil well wild catter. He made a million, lost a million and was very flamboyant. He once had a band meet his train in Vivian, LA. He held a big blowout at the Capt. Shreve Hotel in Shreveport, LA. Later, alcohol became a problem...divorced wife, died broke at Pines Sanitarium, Shreveport, LA where he had once donated all the furniture to this same place.


Last address 1944: 4112 Anna Street Shreveport, Louisiana.
