I believe that this Mary's maiden name should be "Rice" and not "Graves". Mary Graves married a Benjamin Rice, just not this one. I found the following information on the Edmund Rice Assoc. Website:

Mary Rice was born on 6 August 1669 at Marlborough, MA, (listed just as the first week of August by the vital records).5,3,6,7 She was the daughter of Samuel Rice and Mary Dix. Mary Rice married Benjamin Rice, son of Deacon Edward Rice and Agnes Bent, on 15 November 1692 at Marlborough, MA.8,6,3,4,9 Mary Rice died on 22 October 1736 at Marlborough, MA; aged 65y.10,3,11,12 She was buried at Old Common Cemetery, Marlborough, MA.11
Note that the marriage specified by WARD is apparently in error and that the Rice Genealogical Register line has the correct line. The Sudbury VR lists the marriage of Benjamin Rice and Mary (Chamberlain) Graves on 1 April 1691. This would be the Benjamin Rice born 1640 at Sudbury. The Marlborough VR lists the marriage of Benjamin Rice and Mary Rice on 15 Nov 1692. This would be the Benjamin Rice born 1666 at Marlborough as shown here.

To fill out the last comment on Mary's memorial, the Benjamin Rice that married Mary (Chamberlain) Graves is the son of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine (Frost). Source 'Descendents of Edmund Rice'. Thus Benjamin, born 1640,is the uncle to Benjamin, born 1666; because Benjamin's (born 1666) father Edward is also the son of Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost.
I don't find a memorial for Benjamin, born 1640 d. 1713, on Find a Grave
