Bio Photo Now that I am retired, my new passion is genealogy. I have found wonderful information on the findagrave site.

If I have made a memorial for someone you would like to manage other than my own family, please don't hesitate to ask. Also, any photos that I have added may be used without asking my permission. It is my intent to share them.

RE: Graves Family
Hi Deanna,
sorry for the long delay here. What little I know is not sourced well, but is found at
William Graves (9) married Lydia Dugan on 18 March 1806 in Portsmouth, Scioto Co., Ohio. He died about 1812. Some proof of his parentage is still needed. Lydia secondly married Aaron Goodwin in June 1816. They lived in Delhi Twp., just southwest of Cincinnati, from the time of their marriage until 1835, when they moved to Indiana.

William and Lydia may have had another son. A boy 10-15 years of age was living with Aaron and Lydia in the 1820 census, and the 1830 census showed a male, 15-20. The child may have been a younger brother, or possibly Lydia's son by William Graves. (R-3)

Children - Graves

+40. Thomas Graves, b. 1 Dec. 1806, m. Mary A. Mixer, 27 Nov. 1834, d. 7 Aug. 1898.

RE: Graves/Dugan Family
I wish I had more information to share. All I know is my un-sourced assumption that Tabitha Dug(g)an married Zachariah Graves, and Lydia married Z's brother, William. I have this note on Thomas, but have no info on the EWING referred to:
THOMAS GRAVES was born at Portsmouth, Ohio, December 1, 1806, a son of William and Lydia (Dugan) Graves. When our subject was six years old, his father died, and he was reared by an uncle, John Ewing, of Whitewater township, with whom he remained until his twenty-second year, receiving such education as the subscription schools of the community afforded. After leaving his uncle's, his first employment was with the Kanawha Virginia Salt Company, which became bankrupt, and as he had invested his savings with that company he was left without a cent. After several years miscellaneous trading up and down the river, he bought a farm of ninety-six acres in Columbia township, February 18, 1840, and has since been successfully engaged in agricultural pursuits. His farm is situated on "Indian Hill", on a direct trail between the two Miami rivers. Indian Hill received its name from a sad circumstance--the killing by an Indian of a white man who was watching for deer at a salt lick on what is now Mr. Graves' farm. On November 27, 1834, Mr. Graves married Mary A., daughter of Ebenezer and Deborah (Hubbard) Mixer, and to this marriage four children have been born: William E., who farms the old place; Ebenezer, who died April 19, 1874; John, who died April 4, 1892, and Lydia, who died February 27, 1893. The death of their mother occurred May 20, 1884. In politics Mr. Graves is a Democrat.

and a note about William:
Served as a private in Capt Caleb ODLE's Company, (Probably from Ross County); Served from Oct 26 until Nov 12, 1813. Part of company served from July 28 until Aug 18, 1813.

RE: John Dugan
I came across a cemetery transcription for Black Oak Cemetery and he is listed there as well as his military unit. I see you have requested his photo in Black Oak--you may want to re-submit since it's been 6 months or so. I saw a gentleman named Sullivan (I think) that had taken quite a few photos in that cemetery, maybe he would be willing to take a look. I wish you the best, please let me know what you find out!

RE: Cooks in Seminary
Thomas Cook (father of William) was born about 1835 in Seminary Twp. Do you know if he was a brother to other Cooks who lived in Seminary Twp.? William's wife was Mary Lydia Trammel(l), the daughter of James Trammel(l) and Emily McAdams. Do you know who were the parents of James?

RE: John W Dugan
Since I am not related to John Dugan, I've transferred his memorial to your care, plus the memorials of his wife and daughter.
They are very remote kin of my uncle's wife and I really need to focus on my own closer family and the neighborhood cemetery that I've "adopted."
Have a good weekend!

Thank you so very much for adding the the photo of the Ida and Monroe Leach stone. And thank you for working with the other volunteer to get the job done. It means a lot to us - folks way to far away to get to the cemetery. I love Find A Grave! LuLu

RE: Leach Gravesites
You may want to delete and repost through the fulfill button in the photo requests so the requester gets notice the photo has been added and the request is removed. Your photo is as good as mine so I won't post mine.

Thanks to you Deanna
Thanks to you for all your hard work in placing photos and information. I may never get the chance to visit all these different graves. However, with just a few clicks of the computer I am there viewing each one. Gerald Thacker
