  • Name Martha A. Seagraves 
    • The Seagraves surname presented for this person is based on the dominant spelling found in the various records researched, but primarily on the name carved on the person's gravestone. HOWEVER, for the common variations of the Seagraves family name of which there are over 20, such as Cegrave(s) Segrave(s), Seagreave(s), Seegrave(s), Segrove(s), Seagrove(s), etc. all of which have been given the Seagraves spelling for clarity and ease of analysis.
      Certain variations are used so consistently within a family that they have been retained in this analysis, specifically, SAGRAVES (which also includes Sagrove(s)) and SEAGRAVE. Sagraves was adopted by the early settlers of eastern Kentucky about 1800. Seagrave was the version brought to Massachusetts by the John & Sarah Seagrave family who settled there about 1725.
      The Seagraves version is the most common found (about 39%) of all those found on the 1940 census.
      A discussion of the name spelling variations can be found on the Home Page of this website.

    • It is not certain where Martha was born, but her father, Hillsman, is recorded in February 1839 as: "Hillsman Segraves of Montgomery County sold 350 acres of land on Hammer's Creek in Montgomery County, NC". Hillsman had been recorded as a chain carrier in Montgomery Co. in 1825 and is presumed to have lived there throughout the 1820s and 1830s before migrating to Pike Co., GA to be on the 1840 census there.
      The 1850 census for Pike Co., GA lists Martha as 15 years old and born in GA, so depending on the actual date of the migration of the Hillsman family (before or after Martha's birth) the NC or GA birth location would be more likely.
