Lucretia Chappell is shown to be the wife of Elijah Graves in Mecklenburg County, Virginia. Their children (Elizabeth Briggs Graves, Lucretia Graves, Howell Graves, and Dolly Graves) were all born between 1779 and 1786.
However, in the will of her father, James Chappell, written in 1768 in Sussex County, VA, Lucretia is named as "Lucretia Carter." This would indicate that she was married to a Mr. Carter, prior to her marriage to Elijah Graves.
Does anyone know who the first husband of Lucretia Chappell was?
