About William Graves

William Graves was born by 1631, since he patented land in York Co., Va. in 1652. He died before 1668 (York Co., Book 4, p. 178) when Rachel Graves, wife or widow of his brother Ralph, appeared on behalf of her son Ralph as next of kin to Ann Graves, daughter of William Graves, deceased. This proves William had no other surviving children, since they would have been Ann's heirs. It also proves that Ralph was the oldest brother of William, and Ralph was the oldest son of Ralph. This follows the English inheritance laws of that time. William received a grant of 80 acres in York Co. on 13 Oct. 1656.
