  • Name Edgar Frank Seagraves  [1, 2
    • 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.

    • This marriage date and location is from "The Reverend William Segraves and His Descendants" by Savannah Segraves Day, 1989. However, "Virginia, Select Marriages, 1785-1940" on Ancestry.com does not show this marriage. Since their only known child, Wanda Lue, was born in July 1932, the 1930 date seems reasonable. [1, 6]
