      From Roanna Camden Cann on FindAGrave:
William Graves was the son of William Graves and Lucy Berger of Pittslvania County, VA. Lucy was the daughter of Jacob Berger and Catherine Nowlin. I am descended from Lucy's brother, Samuel Casper Berger and his wife Hester Ann Roe Berger Berger (Sam and Hester were first cousins).
William and Lucy settled in Missouri where they had their children. Their children settled in Arkansas, Nebraska, Idaho, Montana, Washington, Oregon, and California. Lucy's father, Jacob, is Find A Grave Memorial# 11427439 and her mother Catherine is Find A Grave Memorial# 11427439. Lucy died in Montgomery, Missouri and I have not located her grave, yet.
