Charles Lewis Seagraves

Male 1917 - 1967  (50 years)


Personal Information    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All

  • Name Charles Lewis Seagraves  [2
    • North Carolina Birth Indexes, 1800-2000 records the birth of a son to Charley Segrave & Clementine McMillion on 28 Jun 1917, however the record show the child's name as John, not Charles Lewis. Since the parents are correctly named and the date of birth corresponds directly with other sources for Charles Lewis Seagraves, I believe the birth record is for him and the child's name was transcribed incorrectly. [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.
