Nancy Graves is my g grandmother. As far as I know her maiden name was WILBURN. m. 1 John B. KYLE, abt 1878,from this union came Isaac Kyle b. 15 Dec 1879.m 2 Samuel CUTTLER abt 1881 from this union came Prince Sylvester CUTTLER b. 9 Mar 1882 m 3 Jesse GRAVES 19 Sep 1889 and from this union came William Vestal , Pearl Mae, and Cora Ellen.My mother believes that Aunt Lucinda was not a birth-child of this family but was in fact sort of "adopted" in.
I've done all that I know to do short of hiring a professional genealogist to confirm the maiden name of Nancy and find out anything about her parents.My mom says she was of native american descent and was somehow related to a group of musicians with the last name of WILBURN.
Some have tried to connect Nancy with George Breshears and Utah Graves.Others have tried to connect her with with Gilliam Graves and Delilah Hawthorne, Others have tried to connect her to Lihue Tandy Wilburn and Cynthia Jan Robert.For myself, there has not been enough evidence put forth in any of these claims to make these connections.Therefore, I still am uncertain as to who the were the real parents of Nancy Wilburn Kyle Cuttler Graves.If anyone out there can tell me anything I would sure appreciate it!
