For many years he lived in Glover and in 1875 he was married to Jane D. Telfer, who survives him. Mr. Graves was a Civil war veteran, having enlisted with the Vermont Volunteers and saw much service in the war. In 1914, Mr. and Mrs. Graves moved to the small place on the West Glover road, where they have since lived. The funeral services were conducted from the home by Rev. J. J. Hutchinson and interment was in the Welcome O. Brown Cemetery. He leaves his wife, who is in feeble health, a daughter, Mrs. Charles Scott, of Danville and two grandchildren, a son, E.L.
