  • Name Alvin M. 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.
    Born 5 Nov 1916  Quinton, Salem County, New Jersey Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 4
    • The US Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 gives Alvin's birthplace as Woodstown, Salem County, New Jersey; but Findagrave.com says it was Quinton, Salem County which is where he lived later in life and which is only a few miles SE of the city of Salem. His family lived in Pilesgrove, NJ in 1920 when he was 3 and that is a more likely place for his birth.
      I have chosen to stay with the Quinton location until better information comes along. [1, 2, 3]
