Thompson & his wife Salesa(?), citizens of the county of Henry in said State, John Swoford and his wife Eliza born citizens of the county of Hamilton in said State, and Alfred Segraves a citizen of the county of Giles in said State, against Marlin, Mary, Louisa, Kinchen, James, Martha, Sarah and Jefferson Morrow minor children of Anna Morrow deceased.

That on the 12th day of September 1856 the said Elizabeth Segraves the widow died in said county of Lawrence. That at the request and as the express wish of their father the said Kinchen Segraves the said Elizabeth Segraves their mother was to have the use and benefit of said land & personal property for and during her natural life, that as before stated She died in September 1856 and that said land descended to your petitioners and said minors as the heirs at law of said Kinchen Segraves deceased.
Your petitioners would further state that the said 104 acres of land cannot be divided between your petitioners without manifest injury as the same would have to be divided in 8 shares and to cut said tract in such small parcels would be manifestly to the injury of your petitioners and said minors that the whole of said tract should be sold together and the proceeds divided that each of your petitioners as the children of said Kinchen Segraves is entitled to 1/8 of the proceeds of said land, and that the said minor defendants as the grandchildren of said Kinchen Segraves are also in right of their mother, Anna Morrow, entitled to 1/8 of the proceeds of said tract of land.

5452 To the Sheriff of Wilson County: Greetings - In the case of Marion B. Kittrell re Samuel T. Seagraves et al pending in the Chancery court at Lebanon, the death of defendant Samuel T. Seagraves was suggested and admitted at the April Term 1867 of said court, and (plaintiff) was directed to issue to revise said suit against the widow and heirs at law of said def. Seagraves returnable to next term and it appearing that Sallie Seagraves is the widow and that Samuel, Andrew and Kelly Seagraves are the heirs at law of Def. Seagraves...."  Seagraves, Samuel Tilman (I114)
5453 Tom probably died in Wake County, North Carolina. Seagraves, Thomas Jefferson (I2327)
5454 Tom's death certificate lists his cause of death as "septicemia", apparently as a result of a foot injury in a football game. McLean, Thomas Lilburn Jr. (I6926)
5455 Tombstone inscription: "Lost in airline accident over the Gulf of Mexico" Seagraves, Sherrod Edward Jr. (I6593)
5456 Tommie's maiden name was Dinning.  Braswell, Tommie Elizabeth (I1554)
5457 Tony was born 3 February 1893 in Pennsylvania to Louis and Alice (Pangonis) Racine and died 17 March 1968 in Harrisburg, Saline County, Illinois. Seagraves, Bernice (I1735)
5458 Tony was born 3 February 1893 in Pennsylvania to Louis and Alice (Pangonis) Racine. Racine, Anthony Boyd (I1755)
5459 Tutt possibly died in Davidson County, Tennessee. Hire, Tutt (I915)
5460 Tutt was probably born in Macon County, Tennessee. Hire, Tutt (I915)
5461 Two newspaper articles about the death of Myrtle Catts Seagraves describe her funeral services at the Delaware City Methodist Episcopal Church on Sunday, May 3rd, 1919. The Wilmington, DE Morning News says interment will be in the "local cemetery"; the Wilmington News Journal says interment will be at Delaware City cemetery. does not list her at either place or anyone by that name buried in Delaware. 
Catts, Myrtle (I6562)
5462 Unknown dates or locations prior to 1910 Mabel married and divorced a 1st husband according to her 1910 census listing. McKinney, William Carroll (I1084)
5463 US Social Security Applications & Claims Index gives the birth date of Dorse Lee Sagraves as 3 Aug 1928, however, Ohio Deaths, 1908-1932, 1938-2007 shows 3 Aug 1929 as does his listing on the US Public Records Index, Vol 1. His gravestone on says he was born in 1929 and his age on the 1930 census is given as 8 months which implies an August 1929 birth. All considered, without a specific birth record, I believe the 3 Aug 1929 date is most likely correct.
Besides, the Ohio Birth Index, 1908-1964, shows the birth of a "Jack" Sagraves to a Brice Sagraves on 3 Aug 1929. I believe that this Jack was the original name given for Dorse at his birth. 
Sagraves, Dorse Lee (I5662)
5464 US Veterans Gravesites, 1775-2006 shows Martin's birth date as 2 Jul 1929 but his US Social Security Applications and Claims Index shows 4 Jul 1929. Both agree on his death date of 18 Nov 1998. Seagraves, Martin Eugene (I4259)
5465 US Veterans Gravesites, 1775-2006 shows that Martin was buried in Caseville Township Cemetery in Caseville, Huron County, Michigan, but there is no such listing on nor any record of his burial in West Virginia or Ohio. Seagraves, Martin Eugene (I4259)
5466 Valeah probably died in Indianapolis, Indiana. Meador, Valeah M. (I943)
5467 Valentine was probably born in Lawrence County, Arkansas.  Seagraves, Valentine O. (I794)
5468 Various sources do not agree on where Bennett was born: possibly in Wake County, North Carolina or in Georgia. The 1850 and 1860 censuses for Bond County, Illinois both show him as born in North Carolina. Seagraves, Bennett (I674)
5469 Vernon died of a shotgun wound to the abdomen at age 40. Seagraves, Vernon Gray (I4067)
5470 Vester & Merton were probably married in Macon County, Tennessee. Family F197
5471 Victoria was born in Baptist Hospital in Nashville. Seagraves, Victoria Laura (I6934)
5472 Vincent and Lucy were probably married in Lawrence County, Arkansas. Family F251
5473 Vincent Segraves was born, a son of Jacob Segraves, possibly in Wake County, North Carolina. His 1814 Army enlistment papers show him as age 23 which suggests he was born in 1790 if the April date for his birth is correct. His brother, Bennett Seagraves, has a birth date of July 1791 and the 1790 census shows his father, Jacob Segraves in Wake County, North Carolina with two sons under 16, who are possibly Isaac, born about 1785, and Vincent, born in 1788. On the strength of his tombstone date and his possible age on the 1790 census, I have determined to use the 1788 year of birth. The "Family Data Collection-Births" reports that Vincent was the son of Jacob Segraves and Priscilla Strickland, born on 24 April 1788 in Mars Hill, Madison County, North Carolina, Mars Hill is in far western North Carolina, just north of Asheville, about 150 miles from Wake County. As described below Vincent gave his place of birth as Wake County, North Carolina when he enlisted in the Army in 1814 and his father, Jacob was on the 1790 census in Wake County, so, without further support for the Madison County birth location it is not considered a likely possibility. Seagraves, Vincent (I673)
5474 Vincent's entry and the 1860 census give his name as Vincent C., but his actual gravestone and other sources do not. The 1910 census records a middle initial that appears to read "T." Since the earliest recordings of his surname are "Graves", it is likely that the scribe was hearing Segraves but thinking that the Se part was a middle initial. It is possible that his father, who is frequently shown as born in South Carolina, may in fact have been a Graves with a middle initial "C." and as actual Segraves and Seagraves moved into Arkansas from Tennessee, their family began to adopt that spelling, dropping the initial. The records are not clear enough on that point, but do not support using a middle initial for either man. Seagraves, Vincent Jr. (I795)
5475 Virginia Marriage Records, 1936-2014 show Lucille's parents as J. C. Huffman and Effie Church. Huffman, Lucille M. (I2422)
5476 Virginia was possibly born in Montgomery County, North Carolina since her father, Daniel, is recorded on the 1800 census for Montgomery County.  Seagraves, Virginia (I702)
5477 Virginia was possibly born in Pike County, Georgia since her parents are recorded there on the 1840 census. Seagraves, Virginia Ann Frances (I1145)
5478 Vivian was born to Robert Emerson Pearson and Opal C. Penley. Pearson, Vivian Alta (I5007)
5479 Vivian's family was on the 1920 census in Marshall County, Illinois, so it is likely that she was born there. Seagraves, Vivian (I1797)
5480 Wallace & Priscilla were possibly married in San Diego, San Diego County, California, probably in 1941. Family F476
5481 Wallace was probably born in Maricopa County, Arizona. Bell, Wallace (I1568)
5482 Walter & Bertha were probably married in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. Family F338
5483 Walter died at age 37 as a factory worker. Seagraves, Walter Clark (I5775)
5484 Watson Alexander was probably born in Rowan County, North Carolina.  Seagraves, Watson Alexander (I1165)
5485 Waymon "never married". Seagraves, Waymon (I6321)
5486 Waymon was a twin to Lou Frances. Seagraves, Waymon (I6321)
5487 We have no confirmation or proof that this Sarah is the woman listed on Clarence P. Seagreaves death certificate as his mother, but she is the only Sarah Blank we have discovered in Lehigh County, PA of the right age to possibly be the same person. If she was 11 in 1870 she would have been 22 when Clarence was born in 1881.
More research on this family is required to establish proof of these relationships. 
Blank, Sarah S. (I6939)
5488 We have not discovered a marriage record for George Seagrove and Elsa Wilhelmina Dorothea Schulz anywhere in the 1920s. However certain Ancestry family trees claim they were married and that she is the Elsa D. Seagrave, age 45, born in Germany listed as the wife of George A. Seagrave on the 1930 census in San Antonio, Texas. That census records her immigration year as 1910 which almost matches the listing for Elsa Wilhelmina Dorothea Schulz in the U.S. Naturalization Record Indexes, 1791-1992 on which gives her birth date as 2 Jan 1884 in Germany and her year of arrival as 1907. An Elsa L. Seagrove, born in 1884,died in 1961, is buried in the Spring Lake Cemetery in Spring Lake, Ottawa County, Michigan near the grave of George A. Seagrove. Schulz, Elsa Wilhelmina Dorothea (I6977)
5489 Wesley was probably born in Wake County, North Carolina. Seagraves, Wesley J. (I1133)
5490 When she was born Pawtucket was in Massachusetts. Carter, Abigail (I2491)
5491 Wiley "never married." Seagraves, Willie A. (I1546)
5492 Wiley was born 9 September 1855 on White Oak Branch in Macon County, Tennessee and died at Sentinel, Oklahoma on 6 March 1950. "His father Abraham Eason FREEMAN lived on Katie Hill across the branch from the old Co. Farm" "the Freeman tribe came by ox wagons through Cumberland Gap into Tennessee about 1800." His children were: Mary, married John Gillenwater,"; Hise, who was an officer in the Civil War, wife was Mary Seagraves, daughter of Louis Seagraves near Lafayette; went to Texas in 1882;." Wiley Howell, named for Dr. Wiley Howell, physician of Lafayette,"his wife was Laura Seagraves, sister of Mary." Wiley Howell Freeman taught school at Antioch and near Franklin, Kentucky, before going to Vanderbilt University where he and his brother-in-law graduated in medicine before coming to Roanoke, Texas in 1882." Sam Seagraves and Wiley Howell Freeman practiced medicine over sixty years, "Uncle Wiley" went to the Plains of west Texas in 1900, selling land for forty that cost him ten and investing in land at a dollar up. He later moved to Sentinel, OK having been joined by families of his two brothers, Abe and Joe, in 1900." Wiley died 6 March 1950 and is buried with Laura in the Sentinel Cemetery in Sentinel, Washita County, Oklahoma. Seagraves, Laura S. (I876)
5493 Wiley was probably born in Giles County, Tennessee. Seagraves, Wiley B. (I1225)
5494 Will of Adam Seagrave:
Oct. 27, 1723; Jan. 14, 1723/4

Seagrave, Adam (I615)
5495 William & Cathy were probably married in Ohio. Family F147
5496 William & Vernie were probably married in Allen County, Kentucky. Family F302
5497 William C. was possibly born in Bledsoe County, Tennessee. Seagraves, William C. (I1219)
5498 William died Intestate. Arabella Seagrave was Administratrix, William Seagrave of Pilesgrove, Salem County was fellow bondsman. Seagraves, William II (I5941)
5499 William Earl Segraves is said to have married a Thelma Marie Hughley later in life. An unsourced Ancestry family tree places that date at 10 Nov 1946 in Las Vegas, Nevada. A long search through un-indexed and un-sequenced Clark County, Nevada marriage records on did not reveal any such marriage.
The memorial for Virginia Segraves Francis (11 Aug 1947- 31 Jan 2013) says that she was "born in New York to Earl & Thelma (Hughley) Segraves." So, that marriage may be based in some fact not known to this researcher. Thelma Marie Hughley Segraves, 31 Aug 1906- 18 Feb 1982, is buried in the Laws Chapel Cemetery in Atlanta, TX where William Earl is buried, so, again, a relationship is implied.
I do not believe additional research work is currently required to complete the life of William Earl Segraves, but that future information may become available to do so. 
Seagraves, William Earl Sr. (I3436)
5500 William Gray died at age 63 of cancer  Massey, William Gray (I482)
