Notes for Thomas (Capt) Graves:

 

Thomas came to the US with Gov Endicott's Company, arriving in Salem, MA 1629 aboard the "George Bonaventure". Thomas' wife, 5 children & 2 servants came with him.

 

The first official record of Thomas was in 1645 in Hartford, Conn where he owned 3 pieces of property. Isaac also settled in Hartford, John & Nathaniel settled in Wethersfield. Nathaniel was married there in 1655.

 

The family remained together as far as it is known until the removal to Hatfield, MA. The son Samuel never married and probably died before the family moved to Hatfield. Nathaniel stayed in Wethersfield, where his wife's family owned large land holdings.

 

The family left Hartford mid Sept 1661 & arrived in Hatfield about 10 days later. Thomas & Sarah lived with their son, Isaac, until their deaths in 1662 & 1666.

 

OCCUPATION: Engineer. On 10 March 1628/9, Thomas Graves of Gravesend, Kent, gent., signed a contract with the Massachusetts Bay Company, in which he claimed to be skilled in the discovery of mines, in "fortifications of all sorts," in surveying, and in various other similar specialties [MBCR 1:30, 32-33, 390-91; Young's First Planters 53-54, 56-59, 152-54].FREEMAN: 18 May 1631 (as "Mr. Tho: Graves") [MBCR 1:366].EDUCATION: Clearly a well-educated man, given the wide range of his skills, but he did not attend Oxford or Cambridge. He was said to have travelled widely [Young's First Planters 153]. He wrote a brief letter back to England about his early assessment of New England [Higginson 109].OFFICES: Appointed commissioner to act with Endicott and to assist him in military matters, 17 April 1629 [MBCR 1:37j, 361, 387; Young's First Planters 144, 194].ESTATE: 6 March 1632/3: A committee appointed by the General Court agreed "that all the ground impaled by Newtown [i.e., Cambridge] men, with the neck whereon Mr. Graves his house standeth, shall belong to Newtown ..." [MBCR 1:102]. This land was long known as Graves Neck, and is the area now referred to as Lechmere Point.

 

MARRIAGE: In his contract, asked to have Company pay costs of transporting his wife, five children, and two servants [MBCR 1:32-33; Young's First Planters 58].CHILDREN: Five children, as noted immediately above; no certain evidence that wife or children actually came to New England. COMMENTS: This Thomas Graves, the engineer, is frequently confused with Mr. Thomas Graves, shipmaster, who later settled in Charlestown. This second Thomas Graves made frequent voyages across the Atlantic, bringing passengers from England. He settled in Charlestown about 1639, and returned to England to participate in the Civil War, where he attained the rank of Rear Admiral [TAG 32:14]. Frothingham makes a careful distinction between the two, and cements his case by reproducing the very different signatures of the two men [Frothingham 139-40]. From Francis Higginson's account, it would appear that the second Thomas Graves was master's mate on the Talbot, which brought Higginson and Thomas Graves the engineer to Salem in 1629 [Higginson 119]. In the list of those admitted as inhabitants of Charlestown in 1629 we find "Mr. Graves who had charge of some of the servants of the Company of Patentees with whom he built the great house this year for such of the said Company as are shortly to come over which afterwards became the meeting house" [ChTR 3]. Charlestown agreed with Mr. Graves to "model & lay out the form of the town with streets about the hill which was accordingly done and approved of by the Governor" [ChTR 3]. Thomas Graves does not appear in the list of inhabitants of Charlestown of 9 January 1633/4, nor in the various grants of land in the years immediately following, so he presumably departed from Charlestown (and from New England) sometime during 1633. Winthrop tells a strange story which may relate to this man: "Mr. Thomas Graves, a member of Dorchester, and a very understanding man, would needs leave the church, and go to Virginia against all counsel, etc. He and his wife and divers of his children died, and his whole family was ruined about a year after. Only one daughter escaped, who, being left a maid with a good estate, married after to that apostate, Nathaniel Eaton, who, having spent all she had, fled away, and left her miserable, 1646" [WJ 2:342]. Winthrop does not date this entry, so we do not know just when this Thomas Graves is supposed to have gone to Virginia. It certainly cannot be the shipmaster of Charlestown, and there is no record of a Mr. Thomas Graves of Dorchester in Massachusetts (unless Thomas Graves the engineer joined the Dorchester church in the earliest years, for which we have no records). The father of the woman who married Nathaniel Eaton was a Thomas Graves who arrived in Virginia in 1608, and is well-documented there right down to his death in late 1635 or early 1636, so he cannot be the engineer [Virginia M. Meyer and John Frederick Dorman, eds., Adventurers of Purse and Person, 3rd ed. (Richmond VA 1987), pp. 325-28]. Winthrop has probably confused two stories. Quite possibly Thomas Graves the engineer departed Charlestown in 1633, and headed south, for Virginia or one of the Caribbean Islands, and soon lost his family and estate; and when Winthrop heard of Eaton's activities in Virginia he recalled this Thomas Graves and combined this story with the father of Nathaniel Eaton's wife, of whom he had no independent information. In one story, then, Winthrop could moralize about two men who had abandoned New England and suffered in consequence.

Notes for Isaac Graves:

 

Isaac came to New England with his father and settled in Hartford, Conn. before 1645. He was made freeman at General Court, Boston, Mass. 16 May 1669, was Sergeant in the Colonial Militia, and Clerk of the Writs for Hatfield, to which he moved in 1661. He was a prominent man in his time, and one of the representatives of that portion of Hadley (later Hatfield) who appeared before the General Court at Boston in favor of separate church and town rights for Hatfield.

 

Isaac was a carpenter, and was a resident of Wethersfield, Conn. before 1645. He "keyed down" Goffe's Bridge in Wethersfield in 1648.

 

On August 25, 1675, a scouting party of ten was sent out and fell into an ambuscade, and nine were killed. Then on the 17th of September, Captain Lathrop and his company and several teamsters from Deerfield were attacked and massacred. Only a few escaped. Sixty-four were buried in one grave as the result of the "Bloody Brook" fight. Seventeen of the sixty-four were Deerfield men. In consequence of the numerous attacks by the Indians, the people, to better protect themselves, built a stockade, probably in the atumn of 1675, composed of posts of timber set in the ground, and about ten feet high. This stockade was built on both sides of Main Street, some twelve or fifteen rods from the east and west lines of the street, extending north from the Northampton road, not far from 100 rods. This stockade enclosed the bulk of the village. The houses of Isaac and John Graves were within the stockade. Unfortunately for them, on September 19, 1677, they were both employed in building a house for John Graves, Jr., about half a mile above the northerly end of the stockade, on a lot adjoining that of Sergeant Benjamin Waite. Without any warning or thought of danger, they were attacked by the Indians, and Isaac and John were shot down while engaged, as one tradition has it, "in laying shingles on the roof of the house," and with them were likewise two other men who were working with them, John Atchinson and John Cooper. Eight others were killed, and we presume scalped, as the account speaks of them as being disfigured, and seventeen were made prisoners. All but one, Obadiah Dickinson, were women and children.

BATTLE MONUMENT AT BLOODY BROOK. Erected

 

August, 1831. On this ground Captain Thomas

Lathrop, and Eighty-Four Men under his command, including Eigh-teen teamsters from Deer-

 

field, Conveying Stores from that town to Hadley, were

ambuscaded by about 700 Indians, and the Captain and Seventy-six Men Slain, September 18th 1675, (old Style). The Soldiers who fell, were described by a Contemporary Histori-an as a Choice Company of Young Men, the very flower of the County

 

of Essex. None of whom were

ashamed to Speak with the enemy in the gate.

- "And SANGUINETTO tells you" where the dead "Made the earth wet and turned" the unwilling Waters Red.-

 

The grave of the Slain is Marked by a Stone Slab 21 Rods Southerly of this Monument.

 

----

GRAVE of CAPt. LATHROP, AND MEN SLAIN BY THE INDIANS 1675.

 

This monument stands 30 or 40 rods southerly from the Congretional church. South-easterly from the monument is seen Sugar-loaf Mountain, a conical peak of red sand stone, about 650 feet in height. In 1835, the 160th anniversary of the destruction of Capt. Lathrop and his men was commemorated in this place. The Hon. Edward Evertt, governor of Massachusetts, was appointed orator for the occasion, and General Epaphras Hoyt, of Deerfield, was appointed to make the address at the laying of the corner stone for the monument. About six thousand persons were present on this occasion. Governor Everett delivered his address under a walnut tree. About forty years after Capt. Lathrop and his men were killed, a rude monument was erected to their memory, but the different occupants of the soil removed it so many times, that it was a matter of uncertainty where he of his men were buried.

 

In 1835, the committee of investigation, guided by the tradition of some aged people, found the spot where he and about thirty of his men were interred; the grave was just in front of the door-yard of Stephen Whitney, Esq., and about twenty feet north-west of his front door. Their bones were in a state of tolerable preservation, but fell to pieces on exposure to the air. "A grave probably containing the bones of the ninety-six Indians who were slain on that day, was likewise found by accident about the same

 

time, nearly on hundred rods west of the road leading from Bloody Brook to Conway, by Mr. Artemas Williams, and a little more than half a mile south-west of the grave of Lathrop." The monument is six feet square and about twenty feet in height; it is constructed of marble, by Mr. Woods of Sunderland.

 

On its completion an address was delivered at ifs foot by Mr. Luther B. Lincoln, of Deerfield. "For the distance of about three miles, after leaving Deerfield meadow, Lathrop's march lay through a very level country, closely wooded, where he was every moment exposed to an attack on either flank; at the termination of this distance, near the south point of Sugar-loaf Hill, the road approximated Connecticut river, and the left was in some measure protected. At the village now called Muddy Brook, in the southerly part of Deerfield, the road crossed a small stream, bordered by a narrow morass, from which the village has its name; though more appropriately it should be denominated Bloody Brook, by which it was sometimes known. Before arriving at the point of intersection with the brook, the road for about half a mile ran parallel with the morass, then, crossing, it continued directly to the south point of Sugar-loaf Hill, traversing what is now the home lots, on the east side of the village. As the morass was thickly covered with brush, the place of crossing afforded a favorable point of surprise. On discovering Lathrop's march, a body of upwards of seven hundred Indians

Lathrop and his men were killed, a rude monument was erected to their memory, but the different occupants of the soil removed it so many times, that it was a matter of uncertainty where he of his men were buried. In 1835, the committee of investigation, guided by the tradition of some aged people, found the spot where he and about thirty of his men were interred; the grave was just in front of the door-yard of Stephen Whitney, Esq., and about twenty feet north-west of his front door. Their bones were in a state of tolerable preservation, but fell to pieces on exposure to the air. "A grave probably containing the bones of the ninety-six Indians who were slain on that day, was likewise found by accident about the same time, nearly on hundred rods west of the road leading from Bloody Brook to Conway, by Mr. Artemas Williams, and a little more than half a mile south-west of the grave of Lathrop."The monument is six feet square and about twenty feet in height; it is constructed of marble, by Mr. Woods of Sunderland. On its completion an address was delivered at ifs foot by Mr. Luther B. Lincoln, of Deerfield. "For the distance of about three miles, after leaving Deerfield meadow, Lathrop's march lay through a very level country, closely wooded, where he was every moment exposed to an attack on either flank; at the termination of this distance, near the south point of Sugar-loaf Hill, the road approximated Connecticut river, and the left was in some measure protected. At the village now called Muddy Brook, in the southerly part of Deerfield, the road crossed a small stream, bordered by a narrow morass, from which the village has its name; though more appropriately it should be denominated Bloody Brook, by which it was sometimes known. Before arriving at the point of intersection with the brook, the road for about half a mile ran parallel with the morass, then, crossing, it continued directly to the south point of Sugar-loaf Hill, traversing what is now the home lots, on the east side of the village. As the morass was thickly covered with brush, the place of crossing afforded a favorable point of surprise. On discovering Lathrop's march, a body of upwards of seven hundred Indians planted themselves in ambuscade at this point, and lay eagerly waiting to pounce upon him while passing the morass. Without scouring the woods in his front and flanks, or suspecting the snare laid for him. Lathrop arrived at the fatal spot; crossed the morass with the principal part of his force, and probably halted, to allow time for his teams to drag through their loads. The critical moment had arrived - the Indians instantly poured a heavy and destructive fire upon the column, and rushed furiously to close attack. Confusion and dismay succeeded. The troops broke and scattered,

 

fiercely pursued by the Indians, whose great superiority enabled them to attack at all points. Hopeless was the situation of the scattered troops, and they resolved to sell their lives in a vigorous struggle. Covering themselves with trees, the bloody conflict now became a severe trial of skill in sharp shooting, in which life was the stake. Difficult would it be to describe the havoc, barbarity, and misery that ensued; 'fury raged, and shuddering pity quit the sanguine field,' while desperation stood pitted, at 'fearful odds' to unrelenting ferosity. The dead, the dying, the wounded, strewed the ground in all directions; and Lathrop's devoted force was soon reduced to a small number, and resistance became faint. At length the unequal struggle terminated in the annihilation of nearly the whole of the English; only seven or eight escaped from the bloody scene, to relate the dismal tale; and the wounded were indiscriminately butchered. Capt. Lathrop fell in the early part of the action. The whole loss, including teamsters, amounted to ninety.

 

Capt. Mosely, who was at Deerfield with his company, between four and five miles distance, hearing the musketry, hurried on to the relief of Lathrop, but it was too late; he found the Indians had done their bloody work, and were stripping the dead. Rushin on in close order, he broke through the enemy, and, charging back and forth, cut down all within the range of his shot. After several hours of gallant fighting, the savages were compelled to seek for saftery in the surrounding swamps and forests. Lieutenants Savage and Pickering greatly distinguished themselves by their skill and bravery. Just at the close of the action, Major Treat, of Connecticut, who on the morning of this day had marched towards Northfield, arrived on the ground with one hundred men, consisting of English, Pequot and Mohegan Indians, and shared in the final pursuit of the enemy. Capt. Mosely lost but two men in the various attacks, and seven or eight only were wounded. The loss of the Indians in the various attacks of the day was estimated at ninety-six, the greatest proportion of which fell in the engagement with Mosely. On the approach of night,

 

Treat and Mosely proceeded to Deerfield, where they encamped for the night, and the next morning returned to the field of slaughter to bury the dead. The day after this disaster, the Indians appeared at Deerfield, on the west side of the river in that town, and, displaying the garments they had stripped from Lathrop's slain, made demonstrations of an attack on the fortified house, which then contained a garrison of only twenty-seven men. The commander held out delusive appearances of a strong force, caused his trumpet signals to be given, as if to call in additional troops, which so intimidated the Indians that they withdrew with-out making an attack. This post, however, was afterwards abandoned by the garrison, and the place was soon after destroyed by the enemy.

Knox Regt. of Artillery, in the American Revolution. He was in the battles of Skinesborough, Stillwater, and Saratoga, and present at the surrender of Burgoyne after Gen. Wayne took Stone Point in 1779. He marched to that place and was

 

taken prisoner by the British, and taken on a sloop to Charleston, South Carolina, where he was kept

 

prisoner until the end of the Revolution. He never returned to Massachusetts. (Another version is that in 1780, with two friends, he went on furlough to Boston, was captured by the British and taken on the Sloop of War Vulture to the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina, where he was recaptured by an American privateer. After the ship made a tour, he was released in Charleston about 1783-84. Meanwhile, he was listed as a deserter from the Army in Mass. in 1780.) Stephen paid poll tax and owned 50 acres of land in 1800 in Blount Co., Tennessee. With sons William and Adam he served as a drum major in the War of 1812. He was allowed a pension on his application executed July 1, 1818, at which time he was 59 years old and residing in Blount Co., Tennessee. "State of Tennessee., Co. of Blount, Sept. 25, 1820, appeared Stephen Graves, age 61, a resident of said county, that he served in the Revolution, has no income from other than that which is in the schedule contained hereto annexed. 1 mare 2 years old, 1 calf 1 year old, 1 sow, 3 pigs, 1 note for $40.00 John Black insolvent (?), 1 note for $50 on John V. Hynes a desperate debt. I owe $60 and $65 in all. I am a farmer by occupation, but I have no land to cultivate and if I did my age and infirmity is so great that I could not support myself. My family consists of myself and my wife Jenny, age about 60. I believe she is as stout (?) as perhaps any at her age could be who has a family and is in moderate circumstances. Stephen Graves."
