I found Peter M. Graves with his parents and siblings in the 1880 US Census, in Lincoln Township, Andrew Co., MO.
The age for Peter was 8 years old, correct with his 1872 birth year.
James Graves, 41 yrs. old, farmer, born in Indiana
E. Margaret Graves, 41 yrs. old, keeping house, born in Kentucky
Elizabeth M., 17 yrs. old, born in Missouri
No doubt same name as her mother...just changed the "call" name so as not to confuse mother and daughter.
William R. Graves, 15 yrs. old, born in Missouri
John H. Graves, 12 yrs. old, born in MO
Peter M. Graves, 8 yrs. old, born in MO
George W. Graves, 5 yrs. old, born in MO
Names are all certainly consistent with how Peter named his own children.
