Sarah married Bostian Sebastian Graves, son of John Sebastian Graff Graves and Catherine Maria Magdalena Fuchs, in Jun 1769 in Orange County, North Carolina. Bostian was born on 1 Oct 1747 in Greenwich Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, was christened on 5 Jun 1748 in Dunkel's Church, Berks County, Pennsylvania, died on 1 Apr 1840 in Knox County, Tennessee at age 92, and was buried on 5 Apr 1840 in Graves Cemetery, Graveston, Knox County, Tennessee.

General Notes: Boston (Sebastian) Graves (Graff), was born Oct 1, 1747 in Berks County, Pa. His birth date appears in the records of Dunkel's Church, Greenwich Township, Berks County, so it is assumed that he was born in that township.
An account of the marriage of Boston to Sarah Efland, daughter of Peter and Catherine Efland, is to be found in a affidavit accompanying his pension application, and because of the wealth of family data contained in his application for a pension for services performed in North Carolina during the Revolutionary War, and in affidavits made in behalf of his widow to enable her to obtain a pension after his death, an abstract of their papers has been made by the writer, as follows: Pension Application of Boston Graves (R 4213). Issued July 10, 1 833 $40 per annum from Mar. 4, 1831 - wife Sarah. Applied for pension Aug 23, 1832, in Knox County, Tenn. Age 85.
Born in Pennsylvania on Oct. 1, 1747. Moved to Orange County, N.C., where he was drafted in 1779 as private in the Militia under Capt. Wm. O'Neal.
Boston Graves and William Graves, who was single, were in the blacksmith business together. It was agreed that William Graves perform the war service since Boston had a family. So the two partners divided the profits, which was done in 1779 or 1780.
When Boston was drafted the second time, for 5 or 6 months, he hired his wife's brother, John Ephland, whom he had raised and was then living with applicant, and being a single man , to take his place. Boston Graves had a substitute for the third draft. In 1781, he was drafted for the fourth time for a term of 3 months under Capt. Wm Rogers, Col. Wm. O'Neal and Gen . Butler. Applicant and Joseph Albright were ordered to work out their tour of duty in Orange County, N.C., at the blacksmith business. After one month he was ordered to Hillsboro, where he was taken prisoner, together with Lt. John Campbell, Col. Little and Gov. Birk and sent to Wilmington and put on board a ship and taken to Charleston, S.C., where he was finally exchanged.
On Aug. 21. 1832, Mary Gibbs, now living in Knox County, who lived near Boston Graves in Orange County, N.C., testified that she knew that he was taken prisoner at Hillsboro and held for 11 months.
On June 11, 1841, Sarah Graves made affidavit that her husband, Boston Graves, died April 1, 1840. Henry Graves and William Graves (preacher of the Gospel) made affidavit that they saw Boston Graves die and that they attended the funeral. George Graves was an acting justice of the peace in Knox County.
On Dec. 8, 1841, Philopeni (Phyllis) Sharp of Anderson County, Tenn., testified: "I was present at the marriage of Boston Graves and Sarah Ephland, the wife and widow...; that in the early part of June 1769 in the State of North Carolina, Orange County, I rode from my father's house Peter Ephland, in company with Boston Graves and Sarah Ephland, now Sarah Graves, to Michael Holloway's where they were married by the county minister as he was then called and returned in company with them to my father, and that said Boston and Sarah Graves have lived together as man and wife from that time to his death."

Signed: Philopine X Sharp Her Mark

Witness: Henry Graves Sworn to before William H. Gibbs, Justice of the Peace for Anderson County.

On Mar. 2, 1844, Henry Graves, 55 years old, of Knox County, a son of Boston, who died Apr. 1, 1840, and whose mother, Sarah Graves, died Dec. 28, 1842, testified that his parents left the following children: Catherine Sharp, Elizabeth Clapp, John Graves, Peter Graves, George Graves, Henry Graves and David Graves.

Pension (for Widow) suspended for lack of proof of marriage. (Rejected pension claims, p. 401 )

In addition to the children mentioned, Boston Graves had a daughter named Mary, who married George Trout. (Records of Roy Stockwell) Boston also had a son named Daniel, who died in Knox County on Oct. 7, 1838. Daniel's wife was Sophia Clapp and they had 8 children. A son , John born Sept 20, 1804, married Catherine Graves, daughter of John and Sarah Sharp Graves . (Records of Roy Stockwell)
Boston Graves' name appeared on the 1779 tax list for Orange County, N.C. assessed on property valued at $1,501, and in 1780 he was taxed on 129 acres of land. His name appeared for the last time on the 1785 tax list, still taxed on 129 acres. Records found in Montgomery County, Virginia, indicate that Boston spent several years in that county before settling in Knox County, Tenn., but he apparently retained his property in North Carolina until 1795 , when a deed from Boston Graves to John Iffland, dated Aug 25, 1795 (Orange County, N.C. Granter Book 6, p. 5) appears in the records. Judging from the birthplace of his children, he must have returned to North Carolina from Virginia several times before finally settling in Knox County, where he remained until his death in 1840. Boston's name appeared on the 1790 personal tax records of Montgomery County, Va., in 1790, having made a return on June 29, 1790, on 6 horses, living with him at the time was a male between 16-21. In this record, Boston's name was spelled Bostain Greaves. In 1792, he was taxed on 9 horses: in 1793 on 9 horses ; and in 1795 on 8 horses, with no sons under 21. He appeared in the 1791 Land Book for Montgomery County taxed on 50 acres of land.
At least one of Boston's children-Peter-was born in Virginia, in 1783. On Aug. 21, 1790 , Boston was a witness to the marriage of George Mann to Elizabeth Moyer (Mozer). On Apr. 22 , 1793, Boston's daughter, Elizabeth, married David Clapp (Marriage Book A-Montgomery County, Va). Boston Graves' name was given as father.
On Aug. 16, 1797, Boston Graves and wife Sarah, of the county of Montgomery, Va., deeded to David Price of the same county, 235 acres of land on "Clover Bottom waters of Sinking Creek, a branch of New River..." This deed was acknowledged in the Montgomery County Court of January 1798 by Boston and Sarah Graves. (Montgomery Co. Deed Book C, p. 95)
Daniel Graves' name appears in the 1830 census for Knox County, Tenn., age between 50-60 (1770-80), and it is likely that he was the oldest son of Boston and Sarah Efland Graves.
Boston's daughter, Catherine, married William Sharp, probably about 1789, as their daughter Sarah (Sally) was born Apr. 11, 1790 in Virginia, and is believed to have been the oldest child of the couple. Sally married Daniel Gibbs, youngest son of Nicholas and Mary Efland Gibbs. (They must have been second cousins, as Sally's mother Catherine and Daniel Gibbs would be first cousins)
The 1830 census for Claiborne County gives Catherine Sharp's age as between 50-60, so she was born sometime between 1770-80. (See History of William and Catherine Graves Sharp)
Elizabeth, Boston's daughter, married David Clapp, born Oct. 17, 1772 and believed to have been the son of Barney and Philopeni Moser Clapp. Barney Clapp, born 1741, was the son of George Valentine and Mary Albright Clapp. He married Philopeni Moser, born Dec. 24, 1741; died Jan. 12, 1780, daughter of Adam Moser, formally of Hereford Township, Berks County, Pa.
John Graves, son of Boston, was born about 1780 in North Carolina (1850 Knox County, Tenn. census) and married Mary Trout, born about 1782 in Virginia. (1850 Knox County Tenn. cens us.)
Boston's son Peter was born Sept. 15, 1783 in Montgomery County, Va., and on Apr. 4, 1806, married Jane Milton in Knox County, Tenn. (Obituary notice published in Bainbridge, Ind , newspaper) His wife died in 1853. After several years in Knox County, they settled near Bainbridge, Putnam County, Indiana, where he died Feb. 2, 1860. (Obituary notice published in Bainbridge, Ind, newspaper) They had 7 children. (Records of Mrs. C.C. Collins, Roachdale, Ind. , a descendant)
George, son of Boston, was born about 1785 in North Carolina, (1850 Knox County, Tenn . census) and married Ann Rutherford, born about 1791 in Virginia. They had no children. (Records of Roy Stockwell)
Henry Graves was born May 21, 1788, (The dates on Henry Graves and his family were copied from a Bible record on file at the D.A.R. Library, Washington, D.C. This Bible is owned by Ellis Reed Graves) and on Sept. 1, 1814, married Betsey Ann Grills, born Feb. 1, 1792, daughter of Elliott and Mary (Polly) Grills. Polly Grills died Mar. 13, 1821. They had 8 children . (Elliott Grills was the son of John and Philadelphia Grills, whose children were: Richard ; Elinor, m. Col. Thomas Ingles, son of William and Mary (Draper) Ingles; Elizabeth; John, m . (1) Aug. 18, 1785, Mary Ingles, daughter of Maury Ingles (Marriage records of Montgomery an d Fincastle Co., Va.); (2) Peggy Robinson, daughter of John, on Aug. 8, 1791; Mildred; b. Nov . 27, 1758 in Albemrle Co., Va.; m. on New River, Montgomery Co., Va., John McAdoo II, (b. in Augusta, later Botetourt Co., Va. Feb. 6, 1757; d. in Anderson Co., Tenn. Dec. 26, 1830. She died Jan. 8, 1838 in Anderson County), on Sept. 4, 1787. (Records of Mrs. Ada Morrow Reeves of Nashville, Tenn.); Elliott, m. Mary _____, who died Mar. 13, 1821)
Betsey Ann (Grills) Graves died June 14, 1850 and Henry died Feb. 6, 1870, in Knox Coun ty, Tenn.
David, (D.A.R. Lineage Book 100, p. 38) probably the youngest son of Boston, married in Knox County on Sept. 13, 1817, Mary Holloway (b. about 1795), who died Sept. 4, 1869. One of their children was William, born July 19, 1818, died Apr. 6, 1895, who married on Oct. 2, 1837, Mahala Graves, born Sept. 24 , 1821. The 1830 Knox County census gives David's age as between 30-40 (b. between 1790-1800). At that time he had 5 children, all under 10. David Graves died in 1846. (D.A.R. Lineage Book 100, p. 38) The Bible records on file at the D.A.R . Library stated that Sarah Graves died Dec. 28, 1843 "in her 90th year", so she must have been born about 1752-53 probably in New Jersey.

Knox County Tennessee 1806 tax lists Shows Bostian Graves taxed on 537 acres.

The tax lists for Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne Counties 1800-1820 list Bostian Graves.

Land Book, State Library, Richmond, Va.) and h is name appeared on the personal tax records through 1795, when he was taxed on 6 horses.
Judging from the birth dates and birth places of his children, it was after the sale o f his Virginia property in 1798 that William Sharp moved with his family to Claiborne County , Tenn., where he remained until his death in 1840.
By deed dated May 11, 1803, William Sharp purchased from Francis Mayberry a tract of la nd in Powells Valley joining end of lot A of Henderson and Company.(Claiborne County, Tenn.

From records belonging to descendants of William and Catherine Sharp, it has been learne d that William's wife was Catherine Graves, and that she was a daughter of Boston and Sarah E fland Graves. Among Boston's pension papers there was a list of his children, and one of hi s daughters was Catherine Sharp. It is likely that William and Catherine were married in Mont gomery County about the date of survey of his property in that county--May 1789--as their old est child, Sarah, was born in Virginia in 1790.
According to the records of Roy Stockwell, a descendant of the Graves and Sharps, Willi am Sharp was a nephew of Henry Sharp, who married Barbara Graves, sister of Boston, and he ha d brothers named John, George, and Aaron. The 1830 census for Claiborne County lists Willia m Sharp, Sr., age between 60-70 (born between 1760-70) and his wife, between 50-60 (b.1770-17 80). Also appearing in the same census was a George Sharp, Sr., between 70-80. Could he hav e been the George who was in Montgomery County with Henry, John and William Sharp, and whos e wife was named Elizabeth? And was perhaps William's brother?

Noted events in her life were:

Census: 1830, Claiborne County, Tennessee.

Catherine married William Sharp, son of John George Sharp and Anna Marie Loy, in 1789 in Virginia. William was born in 1760 in Virginia and died on 11 Mar 1840 in Claiborne County, Tennessee at age 80.

General Notes: William Sharp, Sr., died between Mar. 11, 1840, the date of his will, and Mar. 20, 1840 , when there was a sale of his personal property. (Records of Mrs. Mildred Warren, Smachover , Arkansas, great granddaughter of John G. Sharp.) Attending this sale were William Sharp, Ch ristian Sharp, Henry Sharp, John Parker, and Isaac Sharp. In his will, William bequeathed t o his wife Catherine...and "Whereas I have previously entered to my sons Henry and William Sh arp a portion of my land I wish them to remain where now they are..I nominate and appoint Bos ton Graves and Christian Sharp my executors." Boston Graves was his son in law.

There is a William Sharp on tax list in Anderson county, Tennessee, 1805.

Dearing for 5 years.

Jones of the 39th U.S. Infantry.
In his pension application, Henry stated that he was married; that his wife's name was Elizabeth Miller and that they were married in Knox County, Tenn., on the 15th day of July 1819 . He also stated that his post office was 4 miles northeast of Kane, Greene County, Ill. His application was attested by John J.

MRS. MAHALA P. GRAVES NINETY-FIVE YEARS OLD
This Grand Old Pioneer Will celebrate Her Ninety-fifth Anniversary Tuesday, September 24th

From Friday's Daily
One of the grand old ladies in Cass county is Mrs. Mahala P. GRAVES, or as she is more affectionately known to hundreds through this section of Cass county , "Grandma"
Graves . This worthy lady will, on September 24th, celebrate her ninety-fifth birthday, and although almost touching the century mark, she is still bright and keen in her mind as one fifty years of age. A few weeks ago, she had the misfortune to fall at her home and fracture her wrist, which laid her up for some time, but she has practically recovered from this and with the care of her daughter, Mrs. Mary E. BURNETT, is now feeling in her accustomed good health.
Mrs. Graves has lived to be the head of five generations and this honor is one that comes to but few in a lifetime, and of her twelve children, seven are living; forty-seven grandchildren, forty living; thirty-eight great grandchildren, thirty-six living, and three great-great grandchildren, two of whom are living.
Mrs. Graves was born at Knoxville, Knox county , Tennessee on September 24, 1820. She made her home in that section until 1853, and was married in that county to William W. Graves on October 2, 1837, who had been born and reared in that same locality, being born there July 19, 1818. In 1853, the husband and wife, with their little family, decided that greater opportunities awaited them in the west, and accordingly moved to mills county Iowa , and pre-empted a quarter section of land three miles east of Glenwood , but after a few years decided to come to Nebraska , and in 1864, arrived at Rock Bluffs , then a flourishing little city, and located there, where they have resided since that time and where the husband and father passed away to the Better Land on October 6, 1895.
The lifetime of Mrs. Graves embraces a wonderful change in the life of the nation and of the west, where she has for so many years made her home. Since her arrival at an age of the appreciation of things she has lived to see three wars, the Mexican, the great conflict between the states of the union, and the Spanish -American war; twenty-three presidents have presided over the destinies of the nation since her birth. She has seen in the evolution of time the oxcart displaced by the giant locomotives of the present day, the wagon and carriage passed by the automobile, and now the air craft, the possibility of which would have seemed impossible in the days of her girlhood. She has eaten her food prepared in the old-fashioned fireplace from a fire made with flint and steel and lived to see electricity serve as the means of cooking. She has lived to see rulers and countries change in the melting pot of time, and still hopes to be spared to see other of the great wonders that the twentieth century will bring with it.
The children of this grand woman are as follows: Mrs. Harriet MILLER , Glenwood , Ia.; Alexander H. GRAVES, Murray , Neb.' Calvin M. GRAVES, Wapeto, Wash.; Oriana J. Graves, who died in mills county , Iowa , in 1865; Elbert Lawson Graves , North Yakima, Wash.; Andrew J. GRAVES, attorney at law, who died at Plattsmouth, Neb., in 1906; Julian D. GRAVES, Peru, Neb.; Alvin Shered Graves , New York City; Mrs. Ellen O. LACEY, who died at Omaha in 1900; Charles L.

DEATH OF AN AGED CASS COUNTY LADY

From Thursday's daily. - Last evening at the home of J.D. Graves, at Peru, Nebraska, occurred the death of Mrs. Mahala P. Graves or "Grandma" Graves, as she was better known to the old neighbors and friends in Cass County. This venerable lady whose years of life lacked but two brief years of a full century, is one of the last of the pioneers who assisted in making this community what it is today, as she with her husband came here at a very early day and by hard work and perseverance made a home for the family along the bluffs of the mighty Missouri near the old town of Rock Bluffs, and the old homestead still stands as a monument to the worthy pioneer couple the last of whom has now answered the summons of the Master to her last long rest.
In the past few years Mrs. Graves has been failing in health and has made her home with her son, J.D. Graves at Peru, and just a short time ago enjoyed the privilege of having the children gather with her in what destined to be the last reunion of the family upon earth.
Mrs Mahala P. Graves was born in Knox County, East Tennessee, September 24, 1821, and was married in that state to William W. Graves on October 2, 1837. Mr. and Mrs. Graves removed from Tennessee to Iowa in 1852, pre-empting a quarter section of land three miles east of Glenwood. Here the family resided until 1864, when they moved to the new state of Nebraska, and settled near the then flourishing town of Rock Bluffs. Here they saw the community in which they lived pass from a flourishing community of several hundred population to a mere collection of empty stores, as monuments of past granduer; the country which at the time of their coming was but scarcely known aside from the few settlements along the river grow into one of the greatest agricultural empires of the world. It was given this venerable lady to see three times the nation take up the gage of battle and two of these conflicts were the greatest that the world has ever known, the great strive of state against nation and of the greatest republic of the world against the greatest empire of the world.
It is wonderful to contemplate the changes that this worthy lady has seen develop during her years of life and fitting that as the peace long prayed for came to the world her spirit should pass on giving her the peace and calm that comes at the close of her life. The Grave s family resided at Rock Bluffs up until a few years ago and there on October 6, 1895, the husband and father was called home to rest. Since the death of the husband, Mrs Graves has resided with the children. Twelve children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Graves as follows: A.J. Graves. deceased; J.D. Graves, Peru, Neb., Mrs Harriett Miller, Glenwood, Ia., A.N. Graves, Murra y, Neb., C.M. Graves and E.L. Graves, North Yakima, Washington, Mary E. Burnett, Rock Bluffs ; A.S. Graves, Brooklyn, N.Y., Charles L. Graves, Union, Nebraska, Mrs. Ellen O. Lacy, Omaha , deceased, one child died in infancy and Orlena Graves died in Cass County in 1865, aged 19 years. Funeral announcement of this venerable pioneer will be made later.

DEATH OF AN AGED CASS COUNTY LADY

From Thursday's daily. - Last evening at the home of J.D. Graves, at Peru, Nebraska, occurred the death of Mrs. Mahala P. Graves or "Grandma" Graves, as she was better known to the old neighbors and friends in Cass County. This venerable lady whose years of life lacked but two brief years of a full century, is one of the last of the pioneers who assisted in making this community what it is today, as she with her husband came here at a very early day and by hard work and perseverance made a home for the family along the bluffs of the mighty Missouri near the old town of Rock Bluffs, and the old homestead still stands as a monument to the worthy pioneer couple the last of whom has now answered the summons of the Master to her last long rest.
In the past few years Mrs. Graves has been failing in health and has made her home with her son, J.D. Graves at Peru, and just a short time ago enjoyed the privilege of having the children gather with her in what destined to be the last reunion of the family upon earth.
Mrs Mahala P. Graves was born in Knox County, East Tennessee, September 24, 1821, and was married in that state to William W. Graves on October 2, 1837. Mr. and Mrs. Graves removed from Tennessee to Iowa in 1852, pre-empting a quarter section of land three miles east of Glenwood. Here the family resided until 1864, when they moved to the new state of Nebraska, and settled near the then flourishing town of Rock Bluffs. Here they saw the community in which they lived pass from a flourishing community of several hundred population to a mere collection of empty stores, as monuments of past granduer; the country which at the time of their coming was but scarcely known aside from the few settlements along the river grow into one of the greatest agricultural empires of the world. It was given this venerable lady to see three times the nation take up the gage of battle and two of these conflicts were the greatest that the world has ever known, the great strive of state against nation and of the greatest republic of the world against the greatest empire of the world.
It is wonderful to contemplate the changes that this worthy lady has seen develop during her years of life and fitting that as the peace long prayed for came to the world her spirit should pass on giving her the peace and calm that comes at the close of her life. The Grave s family resided at Rock Bluffs up until a few years ago and there on October 6, 1895, the husband and father was called home to rest. Since the death of the husband, Mrs Graves has resided with the children. Twelve children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Graves as follows: A.J. Graves. deceased; J.D.

General Notes: OBITUARY

MRS. MILLER DIES SUDDENLY Mrs. Harriet Miller, aged 87 Falls Asleep in Rocker at Her Home. Funeral Service Were Held This Thursday Morning.

Mrs. Harriet E. Miller

The death angel quietly stole over the threshold and claimed the spirit of Mrs. Harrie t Miller, aged pioneer as she sat in her rocker in the family home east of Glenwood Tuesday morning. Mrs Miller who was in her 87th year had been enjoying usual good health and the news of her death came as a shock to her many friends. Her daughter, Etta and Pearl with whom she made her home on the family homestead where they have lived so long were busy about the household duties. Their mother arose late, as was her custom, remarking however that her breakfast did not taste as good as usual and after eating but little returned to her rocker in the living room in which she fell asleep to awaken no more in this mortal sphere
Mrs. Miller was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William W. Graves and was born in Knox County, Tennessee, November 22, 1838. She was the oldest of eleven children, two sisters and one brother having preceded her in death and six brothers and one sister survive her. She came here with her family from Tennessee in 1852. She was united in marriage with Joseph M. Miller November 14, 1861 and suffered all the pangs of a wife whose husband was exposed to shot and shell while battling for his cause in the great Civil War. There was born to her three sons and two daughters, the sons dying in infancy. Mrs. Miller united with the Methodist church in her young womanhood and remained a faithful member till her death. As a wife , mother and friend there were none more devoted than she. Her time was given completely to her family affairs rather than to public matter as she found her greatest enjoyment in the service she rendered for her loved ones within her family circle. Hers was a long useful life which came as beautifully and peacefully to the end of its earthly day as do the shades of twilight fade gradually from the glow of crimson and gold to the somber hues of dusk. Such lives remind us that beyond the night there in the dawn of another day which we like to believe brings with it reunion of broken family ties.

Remembering Yakima by those who were there, Yakima Vally Sun - Feb. 22. 1979. Loss Graves and Bluelight: Memories of a man and a town no longer on the map - by Cindy Warren. Elbert Lossen Graves spent some important years of his life in towns that are no longer marked on any map. Born on June 22, 1848, Knox County Tennessee, Graves married Ella Agnes Phoebe Carrell (sister of Elisha Simpson Carrell) on November 23, 1871, in a town called Sonora, Missouri. That scene of his marriage is no longer seen on any map. Neither is Bluelight , a town near Bickleton, Washington, where Graves served as the first postmaster. All that is left of the small community is the old Graves home and a good share of memories tucked away in the minds of Bluelight's former residents. After Graves and his new bride eloped, they lived for a while in Rock Bluffs, Nebraska. With their seven children, they settled in the Bickleton area about 1900. The bricklayer, mason, photographer and carpenter accepted the job of postmaster for the community, which was as yet un-named. One story of how Bluelight got its name went like this: Realizing that the collection of a general store, livery stable, blacksmith shop and butcher shop had to be named in order to qualify for a post office, Graves and a man named Ed Gleason put their heads together. It was Gleason's idea to name the not-quite town after the blue glow (from lamps) he saw in the night when returning from church . So Bluelight it was, however short-lived. Being a fun loving sort, Graves himself built a dance hall in the tiny town. Lumber to build the entertainment center was hauled by bobsled. Elbert Graves held the position of postmaster until 1904 when he turned the duties over to his niece, Nellie Graves Carrell (Uncle Wilber Carrell's wife). This versatile man's next job was with a Puyallup sawmill.(town up near Seattle). He established a sawmill of his own located in the Wenas upon returning to the Valley in 1908. Although business venture s were not usually shared by men and their wives, Graves operated a merry-go-round on South Second Street; and Mrs Graves (daughters Vangie and Lulu) painted the horses and took tickets . Long afterwards he would buy whole strings of merry-go-round tickets so his granddaughter Addie (Rhodes) could ride the wooden horses at the state fair. (Merry-go-round at Bickleton Pioneer Picnic at Cleveland was restored by Joy T. Carrell) In 1910, Graves moved to Yakima after purchasing property on the corner of 17th and Teiton Drive. He and his wife lived in a two-story home he built there. His daughter and her family lived next door. At this time , he was operating a small store located on the corner of Second and Yakima avenues, right next to a Chinese restaurant. He and his wife and son John shared the store keeping respon sibilities, stocking mainly staple goods since they had no refrigeration. They sold vinegar f rom barrels and many kinds of penny candy. Granddaughter Addie Rhodes hasn't forgotten the penny candy days of Grandad's store. All day suckers and licorice whips sold for a cent. Many times she asked for "bacon", a flat red and white stripped coconut candy. She had such a yearning for the pink soda pop, but "they couldn't afford to buy it." Although thrifty Grandpa Graves continued to walk to his store to save the 10 cent street car fare, his son-in-law Elmer Williams decided to go new-fangled and bought a car. Oh how the children (and wife Vangie) cried, recalls Mrs Rhodes, when her father sold the family's horses. Shortly after, two more milestones occurred for the family, one on November 11 of that year, the first Ar mistice parade was held in downtown Yakima. Granddaughter Addie stood on the corner opposite the store for her parade-side view. After his wife's death, Graves gave up the store but continued living in the home they had shared. He was forced out, however, when the city decided to install a sewer and city water system. Taxes were upped so high he had to move to a home on fifth Avenue. His life took a turn for the better again when he married Sitha Waits and began running a store located on Cherry Avenue. He retained his storekeeper status until he died. Several of his descendants still live in Yakima: Granddaughters Addie R hodes, Blanche Anderson, Juanita Coller, Mary Zeigler, Edith Speer (Edith, Eneinitas, California), and Patricia Taylor (Pat, Spokane, Washington) Mrs. Rhodes would like to see her grandfather's now ghost town residence immortalized with a blue light, set atop a power pole, in memory of a man and a town no longer on any maps.

SKETCH OF LIFE OF J.D. GRAVES

J.D. Graves, 84, uncle of the Misses Etta and Pearl Graves, died in an Omaha hospital Thursday, Jan 21. His death was due to influenza. His body was taken to Plattsmouth where he had once resided and where short funeral services were held, after which it was taken to Peru where funeral services and interment took place on Sun Jan 24.

The following life sketch of Mr. Graves appeared in the Peru Pointer:

Julian David Graves was born December 15, 1852, in Mills County, Iowa, and had reached the age of 84 years, 1 month, and 6 days. His parents moved to Rock Bluff, a then thriving village of some size south of Plattsmouth in Cass county, but at present only a town in name. Here he received his primary education, and later came to Peru and graduated from the Normal school. He then went to Lincoln and studied law, after which he went to Benkleman, where he served as county attorney of Dundy county. He was for a time a resident of Texas, and was made a Mason while living there transferring his membership to Peru when he located here permanently.
He was married Dec 29, 1901 to Eleanor Capitola (Dr Capp) Reed, and they made their home here until her death, he practicing law and looking after their farm interests and she practicing medicine until her death Sept 5, 1928. Mrs. Graves was the daughter of the late Dr. F. B. Reed, the first mayor of Rock Bluff.
Since the death of his wife, Mr Graves has continued to make his home in Peru, though at times he would spend weeks or even months with relatives at Plattsmouth or Lincoln.
Mr. Graves was taken ill with the flu a few days before his death, and Dr. Joder removed him at once to the hospital. There flu developed in pneumonia, and at his age this proved fatal in spite of all that could be done for him.
Mr. Graves was united with the Methodist church in early life, and was a faithful Christian as long as he lived, giving liberally both of his goods and service to the church. He was a man highly respected by all who knew him. Failing health forced him about three years ago to cease active work, both in the church and out of it, but he always kept up his interest in church and community affairs.

OBITUARY OF ALICE J. GRAVES

Alice J. Graves was born in March, 1866, in Carroll county, Missouri, and came to Nebraska during 1887, and on December 18, 1887, in Plattsmouth, was married to Charles L. Graves. rev. W. H. Alexander officiating. With her husband she shortly after their marriage moved to Union, in this county, where she has resided for the past twenty-four years. Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Graves --- Harry of Eagle, and Misses Verna and Leola at home, who with her husband, are left to mourn her untime [sic] death.
Mrs. Graves had been in poor health for a number of years, her last illness being of about thirteen weeks' duration. she was first attacked with pneumonia, followed by other complications, which would not yield to treatment, although all that medical skill could do was done in her behalf. Mrs. Graves was a kind and obliging neighbor, a loving wife and mother, and had a great many warm friends in the community in which she was best known, and to evidence their great esteem and respect for the departed the Baptist church was crowded at her funeral, which occurred Wednesday afternoon.
Standing room could not be found for all who desired to show their regard for this estimable lady. The funeral was conducted by Rev. W. A. Taylor of Union. Mrs. Graves was a member of the Baptist church and also a member of the Royal Neighbors of America. John Corey of this city, representing the Red Men lodge, of which Mr. Graves is a member, attended the funeral, bearing a wreath of beautiful flowers for the casket of Mrs. Graves. The Journal extends sympathy to the bereaved husband and children in this sad hour of their great sorrow. --

Plattsmouth Evening Journal. --------------- Kindness Appreciated.
Wife and mother gone, we are now more than ever able to realize that her place in the home as a companion, advisor and protector, was one that she alone could fill, and the vacant chair, the vacant place at the table, and many other objects in the house are silent reminders of her real worth as companion and mother.
During the many weeks of her suffering and at the close of this life neighbors and friends in Union and vicinity did many things to alleviate her suffering and endeavored to cheer the sad hearts; her Royal Neighbor sisters, associates in church and choir, her Pastor, the teachers and pupils, the Noble Red Men order and many others, showed the true Christian spirit in their own good ways; many kind friends here andelswhere have written us words of comfort.
We wish we could grasp the hand of each and express our gratitude, but for the present we can only say in this card that we are very thankful for all those acts and words of kindness to her and to us. Sometime, somewhere, you will all be rewarded.

Harry Graves,

McGinnis Churchill could be called a renaissance man. He was always tinkering, tryng to find better, or more creative ways to do things, so that life could be easier on the plains of the midwest. He was remebered as playing his fiddle on the porch, and entertaining the folks with with his hand-made "dancers" which he would minipulate with is feet as he played. He had a popcorn stand, and provided pocorn for the weekly movies in town. He was also the local Barber in Murray, Nebraska, owning the Deal Barber Shop on Main Street. He was know to his friends as "Mack", and I am sure had some of the best stories in town.

Some of his tinkering paid off. On October 30, 1928 Mack Churchill received a patent for the "Easy (EZ) Way Garden Plow." His simple garden plow was multi functional, and could be used for many purposes such as cultivating, covering, and weeding. The plow is on display at the Cass County Historical Society Museum, Plattsmouth, Nebraska.

with her husband and children moved to Crofton, in the northern
part of the state, about a year ago.
Some two or three weeks ago, Mrs. Baxter was taken sick with
the influenza then so prevalent over the state. From that came a
complication resulting in the rupture of an arteries of one of
her limbs. This proved so serious that amputation of the member
was deemed necessary if her life was to be spared at all. In the
case of the amputation the desired results were not attained and
the patient grew gradually worse until this morning when the
angel of death, long hovering near, came to her relief, ending
the intense pain she suffered.
Mrs. Baxter leaves besides her husband, two children, one
sixteen months of age, and the other nine years old. She also
leaves a brother and parents living at [looks like] Murray [few
words illegible] Christian church at Murray tomorrow (Thursday)
afternoon at 2 o'clock.

The fight of the two Bill Carrells, was talked about for a long time around town. Frank Carroll said that Wilber was a bully.

General Notes: Source: Vern Clark
"Alvy was such a quiet, closed mouthed individual not particularly overly friendly or out going or outlandish in any degree. We Kids were never exposed to his family relation hardly at all except by occasional visits. I didn't learn of our Germanic background until I was at least 55 years of age and even then by the most remote event imaginable. I suspect that lack of interest played a large role on the part of lm father and perhaps even his children....Genealogy was not a topic of conversation. Alvy was a quite an individual. Absolutely fearless of any other individual. Tough as nails with extreme strength and strictly a straight arrrow. His word was bond. He loved his kids in a quiet manner that was almost indetectable. He was totally unable to show his affection for people closest to him. He taught me by example that if I brought children into this world, I was responsible for ther care until they were old enough and able to care for themselves. Quite a man."

420. Warren Byers Franson was born on 3 Jun 1942 in Pender, Nebraska, died on 21 Jun 2009 in Ogden, Weber County, Utah at age 67, and was buried on 25 Jun 2009 in Lyons Cemetery, Lyons, Burt County, Nebraska.

General Notes: Obituary:
WARREN BYERS. FRANSON 67 years of Blue Springs, Missouri, formerly of the Rosalie, Nebraska area passed away Sunday, June 21, 2009, at the McKay- Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah.
How to sum up the life of Warren Byers Franson ... The facts: He was born June 3, 1942, to Bennie and Chloe (Byers) Franson. He grew up on a farm in Rosalie, NE where he and his family would dream of owning flat land to farm rather than hills. He went to Rosalie High School and graduated in 1959. He could spend an entire afternoon talking about all the work he used to do on his car and how he and his buddies would race into town on the dirt roads. He loved cars and he loved to go fast.
He joined the US Navy in 1959 as a way to see the world. After his four year term, he gave college a try at the University of Montana, where he had aspirations of becoming a film producer. The daily routine of college wasn't for him and the call from the sea was too strong to ignore. In 1964, he re-enlisted in the Navy. He married Sharon Schwarten, from Emerson, NE, on December 29, 1966. Together, they had three children, two sons (Scott and Jason) and a daughter (Sara). By 1981, he and Sharon came to the realization that they were better at being friends and divorced, but remained close.
Once his term in the Navy was over, he went to work for AT&T Communications and reaped the benefits of early retirement. As a retiree, he was free to dabble in anything that interested him. He became interested in antiques and began scouting auctions and finding good buys that he could clean up and sell. He still loved his fast cars and would spend hours researching and enhancing his 1984 Ford Mustang, then his 1991 Ford Thunderbird, to his latest 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII.
He also spent a lot of his free time taking vacations. He has seen most of the world, from Japan to Australia to China to Europe to South America. His greatest traveling pleasures; however, took place in the great United States of America, and always with family. He spent many trips with his younger brother, David Franson, and his kids. Trips were always a family affair. Countless hours were spent on the open highway, heading west. Travel within the United States was almost always done by car. He fully believed that people who took airplanes missed so much of the beauty and history that our country had to offer. His final vacation was a trip to Rosalie, NE for his 50th high school reunion, then to Salt Lake City, UT for a reunion with his former Navy shipmates. The plan was to continue on to Brookings, OR, where he could sink his feet into the sand and smell the sweet Pacific Ocean air. He never made it to Brookings, OR. He passed away due to internal complications in Ogden, UT on June 21, 2009, surrounded by his kids and grandkids.
The facts of Warren Franson's life do not begin to describe him as a person. He was strong and faithful when it came to his dedication and love for his family and friends. He was stubborn and determined when it came to doing something he very much wanted. He was a pleasant and joyous surprise to everyone that met him. He spent a lot of his last three years in and out of hospitals and one of the most common remarks from the nurses and doctors were, "We just love him." Was it his sense of humor, his mannerisms, his truthfulness? It was all of those things that made him Warren.
He relished and thrived in laughter and being surrounded by his loved ones. Space and the final frontier fascinated him. Fast cars, planes and ships excited him. Good toe tappin' music thrilled him. Travel and new things intrigued him. Independence Day and other loud bangs and booms electrified him. Accomplishments of his family and friends radiated from him. He was always one to never let things get in the way of doing what he truly wanted to do. He lived his life to the fullest and he expected nothing less from those around him.
His brother, David Franson, his sons, Scott Franson and Jason Franson, his daughter, Sara Franson, his grandchildren, Shanell Patterson and Ethan Franson, his great-grandchild, Logan Patterson, and his countless number of friends will carry the memory of Warren in their hearts. When a Grateful Dead, Elvis Presley, or John Denver song plays on the radio, when a night sky is spotted with endless stars, or when a fireworks display illuminates the darkness and shatters the silence, be sure to smile and know that Warren would be doing the exact same thing. Rejoice in all of the wonders of the world, natural and man-made, surround yourself with family and friends, and do whatever you can to be happy with life.

422. Otto Joseph Triesch was born on 20 Sep 1922 in Yakima, Yakima County, Washington, died on 28 Nov 2010 in Kennewick, Benton County, Washington at age 88, and was buried on 2 Dec 2010 in Sunset Memorial Gardens, Richland, Benton County, Washington. The cause of his death was Cancer.

General Notes: The following was written by Otto's sister at his 85th birthday Party.

A little boy born in Yakima WA. to Joseph and Winnifred Triesch.was named Otto Joseph, born Sep 20th 1922 weighing in at 9 pounds. He had lots of dark hair becoming thick and curly in years to come. Then OOPS! He didn't need a comb.
The family lived on a farm in Benton City Wa for most of Otto's toddler years. About 1928 the family of three moved to Tacoma where Otto attended Holy Rosary School.
After Christmas one year he gathered all of the discarded Christmas trees and delivered them one by one back to the neighbors.
Always looking for something to do he and a friend once delivered his mom and dads love letters to the neighbors mail boxes.
Otto and his parents moved back to Benton City in the early 1930s where they raised asparagus, black angus cattle, grapes, alfalfa, chickens, pigs and fruit on their 60 acre farm. As a young adult, Otto worked beside his parents at various tasks. However he was never fond of the farm work.
When Otto was 17, his baby sister was born in Prosser on the hottest day ever recorded there on July 27, 1939 (114) degree. He always protected and watched over her however she was a little rascal to him. She would jump off of the barn onto his back when he was carrying buckets of milk to the house. Otto has no other brothers or sisters.
He has always been a kind and gentle man and has had many good friends throughout his long life.
He has never been married, has never inhaled cigarette smoke nor has he cussed or drank. He has survived numerous surgeries determined to keep going with a positive attitude (No wonder he lives to age 85)-just like the energizer bunny. He just keeps going and going.
The family farm was sold in 1952 making Otto very happy to move to town where he lived near his & grandmother and parents for many years. About 1959 he inherited a small house from his grandmother. Otto and his parents were once again living together. Otto's sister was married, living in Kennewick with her family. He would visit and enjoy being with his nieces and nephews. They call him "UNKIE."Scott told his mother he was about age 10 before he knew Otto had another name besides UNKIE. Unkie now has 8 great nieces and nephews and 2 great great nieces.
Otto's dad passed away June 1976, leaving Otto and his mother still living in Benton City.
When the Washington Street Dessert Villa Apt. was being built, Otto and his mother applied to move into one of the Apartments when completed. In the meantime they sold their home and moved in with Otto's sister and family waiting for the completion of the building. The steel strike delayed construction so the two families lived together for 18 months. Otto had a dog named Chris which he left with his sister to care for.
The day finally arrived and Otto and Winnifred Triesch moved into Apt 328-2 bedroom on So. Washington St. where they made many friends and both joined the Senior Citizens center becoming very involved in most activities. bingo, square dancing, pool, ceramics, dominoes, dards, exercise classes. Otto received a certificate for 28 years of volunteer service at the Senior Center. He belonged to the Kettle Scrappers, was in many parades. He played Santa Clause for many years. He always had many unique costumes for Halloween and enjoyed most of the activities. Helped deliver meals on wheels and served beverages and washed dishes at the Senior center noon meals. He loves to fish and travel. He had a pet Finch and asked his sister to care for it while he was visiting friends. He hasn't asked her to care for or any more of his things. He has always grown plants and flowers and planted a garden.
Otto's mother died in 1984, he moved into apt # 227- A (1) bedroom on South Washington. St. where he resided until most recently when he fell and broke his ankle. His doctor advised him to discontinue living alone. This decision was difficult, however Otto knew this was the best thing to do and agreed to leave Dessert Villa where he has lived for 29 years. He moved to the adult family home belonging to Denise and John Larson on 26th and Garfield in Kennewick during July 2007.
Today, many of Otto's friends, neighbors, relatives and special care providers are here to help him celebrate his 85th birthday.
We want to thank all of these special persons in Otto's life for taking him to decorate family graves, to Church and to many of the various activities he has been involved in over the many years. Bringing him goodies, looking after him when he was recuperating from surgeries, and unlocking his door when he was locked out. Taking him to various appointments. Taking him to Mariners games.( As you all probably know he is a big fan). Thanks for taking him to the fair and to the ocean as well as community events and dinners at your home.
Thank you for all of the phone calls, well wishes, visits and cards when he was in the hospital and Life care.
Thanks to all of you for the goodies here at the Potluck and thanks to all involved in helping us honor Otto on his special day
Happy Birthday Otto and many more!
In conclusion-thank you to the Monday night Bible study group for letting us use this room for this special party.
