I'm trying to locate the parents of John Graves and Catharine McKinley Graves who lived in Floyd County, Indiana. John was born Jan 1 1818 in Clay County. He is on the census in Crawford county with his wife Catharine in 1850. He died in Lafayette township, Floyd County Ind. Aug 21 1904. His death certificate says he died in Terre Haute. Catharine was born Mar 3, 1828 in Floyd County. Her family supposedly came from Ohio and she was related to president William McKinley. She died Nov 6 1897. She is buried at Horton cemetery in Mt. Pleasant Indiana. John is buried in Potter Rowland cemetery near Eckerty, Indiana. On page # 300 John and Catharine are living next door to William and Sarah Graves age 56 both from North Carolina. It is thought they are the parents of John. A William was listed as the father of John on his death certificate. Any information on them would be appreciated. I do have the names of their children --all 13 of them!
