Responding to Arleigh's comment below. Our Genealogy Society recently had a presentation about Quakers who came from New York state to Ontario. There were many good resources suggested. Here is link to information and video of the presentation by Randy Saylor.

Elijah Graves (1789-1867) born in New York. Trying to research Quaker meetings but not sure where in N.Y. Could be near border as he went to Ontario, Canada in 1823 (possibly from Ontario, N.Y.) and joined Hicksite movement there. 4xg grandfather

The daughter of Benjamin and Rachel (ASHER) Graves was Elizabeth GRAVES who married Stephen Perkins.  I follow this line.  If you would like the information that I have regarding their family, you may contact me at  I am aware of the Perkins vs. White trial, and have done some research on the question.  Patricia Ash

I actively research the family of John and Susan Graves, through their daughter, Nancy Ann GRAVES Perkins, and her brother, Benjamin GRAVES. Nancy Ann Graves Perkins resided in Washington County, Tennessee until her death in 1841. Her year of birth is about 1760. Benjamin Graves lived in Monroe County, Tennessee until his death on 26 December 1856. Both were born in South Carolina.

My Thomas Graves was born about 1797. He enlisted from Deerfield, NY in the War of 1812 in 1813 and served about a year. He was discharged at Sacketts Harbor and walked home, probably near Deerfield unk.
He married Mariah S. ( ), She died 1842 and is buried in St Matthew's churchyard, Unadilla, Otsego co., NY. He then married Olive Owens in 1843. They lived in Unadilla according to tax rolls. He died in 1865 in Sidney, Delaware co., NY and is buried in St Matthew's also. Need parents and siblings.
