It is clearly written in the Census as Graves. However, the census copiers could have made a copy error so you’ll need to compare the family with information you already have to determine if this is the family you really hope it is.
1860 Census of Brown County, Illinois, Elkhorn Twp
Joseph Graves 28 m farmer Illinois
Mrs. D. Graves 25 f Illinois
Alonzo Graves 6 m Illinois
Delbert Graves 4 m Illinois
George D. Graves 1 m Illinois
A. F. Graves 4/12 f Illinois
A. J. Brown 20 m farmer Kentucky
Can you please look up the census data for the following 1860 census name and page:
I am hoping this is just an index error and that this is actually Joseph Groves, who was in the
1850 census but does not appear in the 1860 census.
Thank you, Rebecca Sandberg
