You are going to love the publication "Joseph Gravely of Leatherwood." Have you ordered a copy yet? Let me know when you receive your copy. Very handy!

RE: aunt Edie
Hi there!
I teach online courses and I have a class that begins tomorrow so I am setting up for the class today. I wanted to let you know that in case I do not get back to you in a timely manner.
I think you have told me about Aunt Edie before. Wasn't the the young lady who Patsy Dyer Gravely (?) taught to cook, who became an excellent cook, and who cooked for that Gravely family for many years?
I will look for the article you mentioned later today. I have not even stopped for lunch yet, but I will soon.

Joseph Henry Harrison Gravely (1841- )
According to "Joseph Gravely of Leatherwood," Joseph Henry Harrison Gravely (1841- ) was a son of Willis Gravely. Joe, as he was called, was married three times: 1) Francis McCabe (1842-1864), 2) Anne Eliza Griggs (1848-Abt 1889 or 1880), and 3) Miss Hendricks.

William Armistead Gravely, Sr. (1837-1862)

Me thinkest this, but I am not at my house at the moment so I can not do a look-up. I hope everything is correct.

Willis Gravely and Ann Nancy Marshall (Barrow) Gravely had several children. Among their children were William Armistead Gravely (1837-1862) and Joseph Henry Harrison Gravely (18401920). William Armistead Gravely, Jr. (1862- ) was the son of William Armistead Gravely, Sr. (1837-1862).
William Armistead Gravely, Jr. (1862- ) wrote this holiday postcard greeting to his Uncle Joseph "Joe" Henry Harrison Gravely (1841- ).

How are you all this Christmas? Wish I could see you all. Will try to do so later. I have been very busy and have not had time to go anywhere. Wish you all could come over [?] to see us. Wishing you many returns of Christmas.
I am your nephew.
W. A. Gravely

Please see if I have transcribed you postcard correctly.

It is postmarked Dec 27, Danville, VA. I do not see a year which would have been helpful in identifying both the sender of the postcard as well as his uncle. It looks as if it might say "19--" but I am not sure.

Either way is fine! So thrilled! Thank you again!

Did I read correctly? A transfer to me. I would appreciate that more that I can express. Thank you in advance. I do not know if I ever told you this, but I am twice descended from Joseph Gravely, first through Joseph's oldest son Jabez Gravely and second through Joseph's youngest son Willis Gravely. My grandparents were fourth (?) cousins. Having a double dose of Gravely genes is a good thing. Right?
