Tombstone Tuesday: Graves Family: Arthur, Carrie, Cledith & Sadie


My cousin, Sara Roselinni, was nice enough to provide these photographs of the tombstones of her grandparents and great-grandparents.  Her grandfather, Dr. Cledith O. Graves (1897-1959) was the son of Arthur E. (1871-1920) and Carrie Mae (HALEY) GRAVES (1877-1956).  These graves are in Midland, Michigan.

Carrie Mae (HALEY) GRAVES was the daughter of George Washington and Mary Jane (SHERRICK) HALEY, and the younger sister of my paternal great-grandfather, Eli Weldon HALEY.

He married Carrie Mae HALEY on February 23, 1895 in Jay County, Indiana.  In the 1900 census, they were living in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana.  In the 1910 census, they were living in the 2nd ward of Midland, Midland County, Michigan.  In the 1920 census, they were living in the 3rd ward of Pontiac, Oakland County, Michigan.  Arthur was a carpenter.  He died in 1920.  Carrie died in 1956.
