  • Name Charles Franklin Seagraves  [1
    • 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.

    • "Pennsylvania and New Jersey Church and Town Records, 1708-1985" on Ancestry.com lists the burial of Charles F. Seagreaves as 11 Apr 1891 in Allentown, Lehigh Co., PA. That record gives his birth date as 10 Aug 1844, his parents as Peter and Catherine Seagreaves, and his spouse as Eveline Albert.
      The "Genealogy of Seagraves Sampson and Kindred Lines" by Faye S. Seagraves of Coeur D' Alene, Idaho, 1969, first and second editions lists Charles Franklin Seagraves, born 12 Aug 1844 in Allentown, Lehigh Co., PA., as the son of Francis Seagraves and Sarah Knauss. Faye says that the Charles Seagraves, age 9, born in PA, son of Francis & Sarah on the 1850 census in Trumbull Co., Ohio is the Charles Segreaves, age 7, born in PA, son of Peter & Catherine on the 1850 census in Lehigh Co., PA.
      My research indicates that the Charles in Ohio, son of Francis, is Charles H. Seagreaves, born in Jan 1842 who lived in Ohio through 1880 and in Shawnee Co., Kansas in 1900. Charles F. Seagreaves, son of Peter, lived out his life in Allentown, PA and is a distinct person.
      Based on that I use the birth date recorded for Charles F. in the church and town records citation above. [1, 2]
