Notes for Stephen Graves:

 

Stephen enlisted in Massachusetts in 1776 or the spring of 1777 for a term of 5 years. He served as a drummer in Captain. Lillie's and Capt. Harris's Co., County. 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." Stephen sold his

 

land to Adam, his son, and was living with him in 1820. All his children were probably born in Blount Co., Tennessee.
