When I saw the surnames GRAVES & BUCK, I thought we might be related... but my Graves is in Generation #166 (see gravesfa.org website) John Graves in Concord MA; and the Bucks also don't match. Could be in collateral lines. Thanks for putting such detailed information up, and encouraging us to keep digging out more details and sources for our trees!

I too had GRAVES here in the 1600's. Married Sarah Whiting.
Maybe another colateral line to yours and maybe Celia"s.

I have Thomas b in England before 1585, d Nov 1662 in Massachusetts. I'm descended from his son Isaac GRAVES, b 1620 England, d. 19 Sept 1677 Hatfield MA, m. Mary Church 1645.
