The Mary Williams (01 Sep 1706 - after April 1771), of Mecklenburg Co., VA or Granville Co., NC, who was the daughter of John Williams and Mary Keeling is "said to be" the second wife of Henry Graves (b. bef. 1694 - d. bef. Feb 1749) of colonial Hanover Co., VA.
Mary's birth date of 1706 comes from a letter from Jno. D. Williams of Laurens District, SC to Dr. Alexander Williams of Greeneville Courthouse, Tennessee, dated 17 June 1845.
The best documented research I have seen on Mary Williams and Henry Graves comes from Evelyn Wallace's WILLIAMS, GRAVES and DANIEL Families, and according to her, Mary Williams and Henry Graves had four sons and three daughters:
- Henry who married Rachel ____ and whose will was proved Aug 1797 in Granville Co.
- William who married Mary ____ and whose will was proved May 1786 in Granville Co.
- John who may be the John Williams Graves who left a 1789 will in Granville Co.
- Elijah who may be the Elijah who left a 1799 will in Mecklenburg Co.
- dau. ____ who married John Christmas
- Elizabeth, b. 1741, who married Joshua Coffee and had a son b. 1772, Gen. John Coffee "of Tennessee" who married Mary Donelson, whose sister Rachel was wife of Andrew Jackson
