About John Herndon Graves

Biographical Sketch

John Herndon Graves was born 1746 in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, to John Graves (1715-1792). The mother of John Herndon Graves has not been determined but, due to the closeness in ages, it is thought to be someone other than Isabella Lea (the only concensus wife of John Graves). John Herndon Graves died 1829 in Caswell County, North Carolina. His father, John Graves moved his family to Caswell County in the 1750's. In 1770, John Herndon Graves married Nancy Slade, and they had ten children. After the death of his first wife in 1807, John Herndon Graves married Elizabeth Burton Coleman (the widow of Spilsby Coleman) in 1808. No children resulted from this marriage.

John Herndon Graves served in the Revolutionary War as a Captain of the North Carolina Militia. On March 15, 1781, he was wounded badly at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse and left for dead on the field. According to family tradition, a fellow soldier heard him moan, put him on a horse, and brought him to Yanceyville, where he recovered from his wounds.
