Dear Harold,
I almost did not reply because this might be too far fetched. I saw your posting at two different sites so I thought anyone that desparate might not mind. I cannot prove the following but maybe you can follow up.
In Kentucky, one of the Graves families consisted of Thomas Graves and Mary Chilton, from whom I descend. They were married in 1785 in Kentucky. They had the following sons: Richard B. Graves born about 1786-7, John W. Graves, Thomas Chilton Graves born about 1801, Benjamin Walter Graves, and Pinckney Graves. What leads me to think that your Joseph Graves might be connected to the family is the name of his son Chillian. Have you seen the named spelled that way in some official document? I think that it is a misspelling of Chilton. At least two of the other families, mine and the descendents of Benjamin Walter Graves used the name Chilton in naming their children. Well, I told you it was a long shot. But perhaps you descend from John W. Graves. I have no information about his family.
Regards, Karen Chilton (yes we are still passing it down) Beverly

Ms. Karen Chilton Beverly,
Thank you for your response to my query on Joseph M. Graves and his son James Chillian Graves. It is possible that the name Chillian may have at some point been spelled Chilton. There are no leads to date on the parents of Joseph or Susan and therefore no way of knowing if there may be a connection to Chilton.

The name "Chillian" dates back to Essex, England; 16th Century, and I therefore believe that there is a connection in my family to that name.

Thanks again for your kindness in responding to my query.
Harold Smith

Had 3 brothers - no names but one of the brothers if not all 3 settled in Little Rock Arkansas. My great-grandfather was an African American. He was a ordained reverend in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Please let me know if you think there could be any connections. Even if your family owned slaves at one time. I know that he was a free-man when he was born. Thanks so much!!!

Dear Lydia
My name is Kimberly J. Graves. I am 26 years old and I have always resided in Kansas City, MO. I have two sisters that also live in Kansas City. My father's name is Theodore William Graves. He was born in Columbia, Mo. His mother's name Oretha Graves. She was born in 1900. As far as I know, they lived there the majority of their lives. Columbia, MO. is not far from St. Louis Mo. I do not know that this information could help you, but my sister and I thought that any information my help. I do not know if we are related, but hopefully this information will guide you one way or the other. Hopefully in your search you will find what you are looking for.
God Bless and Good Luck

Hello Kim thanks for your very kind response. I'm actually looking for brothers of my ggrandfather, the Rev. Horace Stepney Graves, and/or their parents. Since Peducah,KY, IL, and MO border each other I don't think it's too far fetched that we could be related. Obviously it's going to take more research and documentation. According to my calculations your grandmother, Oretha Graves, would have been a peer of my grandfather (b. 1897 in Chicago). His father,my ggrandfather, had 3 brothers we believe (according to my grandfather who has passed away). Only one of those brothers had children, a girl, whose name we think was Adeline. Do you have any information on your Graves line prior to your grandmother Oretha? Or any other Afrian American Graves lines? Let me know and please feel free to email me privately.

I do not have any other information on my fathers side. We do not talk that much any more. But we may be related some where down the road. If I can find out some more information on my father's side I will let you know.
