      Joseph Graves (4) migrated from Orange Co., VA to Rowan Co. or Surry Co., NC prior to 1771, probably 1763-1769. (Surry Co. was formed from Rowan Co. in 1770.) He married Sarah

      Joseph lived in Orange Co., VA, and later on Roaring Creek, Rowan (later Surry, now Wilkes) Co., NC. (Wilkes Co. was formed from Surry Co. in 1777.)

      His will in Surry Co., NC was dated 12 July 1774 and proved in August Court 1774. In it he mentioned his wife Sarah, his daughter Mary, and his son-in-law Benjamin Cleveland. It leaves portions of his estate to his daughter's two sons, Absalom and John Cleveland, and states that Benjamin Cleveland, husband of his daughter, be executor of his estate.
