Hi...I am trying to search and find relatives living or dead with the name Sagraves. I would like to know more about where I came from. My grandpa's name was Hurst Sagraves and if I'm not mistaking, he was from Kentucky. ANY information I can get would be helpful. I'm new at this family tree thing and not sure how to go about it.
Thanks
Cathy

Cathy,
Most of the Sagraves of Eastern KY are descendents of Joseph Sagraves and Mary Jones. From VA and NC they show up in Knox Co., KY by 1805. They were in a part of Knox Co. which was cut off to Harlan Co.
About 1825 they went to Flat Gap, KY in Johnson Co. (then Lawrence Co.). They are said to be buried in unmarked graves at the Sagraves cemetery at Flat Gap. Their sons lived in Johnson, Lawrence, Elliott and Carter counties of KY.
Most of Joseph and Mary’s descendents spell their name Sagraves while most other families in the US spell it Seagraves or other variations.

Thanks,

Hi Debraljones,
I noticed that you have Wilkerson's possibly from Bedford, Va listed in your tree. Do you have any information on these Wilkerson's? Our you a direct descendant of them or know someone who is? I have a Wilkerson from that same area and I'm trying to find a possible DNA connection with others from there. Not even sure if that's possible. Thanks for help.

I have only the information I posted on Ancestry. There is a book with a lot of information. "Wilkerson/Wilkinson Family History" by Tom B. Wilkinson. It is out of print but you can find it in some libraries.

Yes, I am a direct descendant and I have proven my family line to NSDAR (Daughters of the American Revolution). They have a section of their website that is searchable with info on Wilkerson's & Wilkinson's and all other Rev War Soldiers.

Regarding proof that Mary Sagraves is the daughter of Stephen Jones:
Mary gave power of attorney to her son Zachariah Sagraves on October 11, 1843 in Johnson County, KY to represent her interest in the Harlan Co., KY in the estate of her deceased sister, Sarah Holmes.
Deed in Harlan Co., KY October 19, 1843 John Jones, Elijah Jones, Mary Sagraves, Zachariah Jones and Stephen sold land on Cranks Cr. to George Spurlock and Noble Smith.
POA in Carter Co., KY November 5, 1845, Stephen Jones (Jr ?) to Zachariah Jones in the estate of his deceased sister, Sarah Holmes,
Making Sarah, Mary and Stephen siblings and implies John, Elijah and Zachariah were also siblings.
I do not have proof that Stephen Jones, Sr. was the father of these siblings but he does mention his son Zachariah in his Rev.War pension application.
