Birth: Dec. 12, 1759
Death: Jul. 14, 1827

Reverend Barzillai Graves was born 12 December 1759 and died 14 July 1827. Note, however, that the Bible of his son Solomon Graves (1784-1861) appears to state that his father Barzillai Graves was born in 1755. He married Ursula Wright, daughter of William Wright and granddaughter of John Wright who married Miss Parsons, on 10 April 1783. She was born 28 (or 26) April 1755 and died 27 November 1843. Barzillai lived and died in Caswell County, North Carolina. about three miles from Yanceyville. He was among the most distinguished Baptist clergyman of his time in Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. He was in the North Carolina Senate in 1814 and 1815 (?) and in the House from 1818 to 1822. He was a taxpayer in Gloucester District of Caswell County, North Carolina in 1790. (Source: CCHA)
