Additional info on Henry T Graves
Chris, first off, thank you for your work on Find A Grave!

You have a Henry T. Graves listed, and some notes about additional wives. Henry's entry is at

I thought you might be interested in info found at and look at entry #1867 for additional info on Henry. The date of his birth and death conflict with your info, and it lists an additional wife. The middle initial of his 1st wife is different than what you have as well. Hard to tell what's correct.

Do you have further info for his wife Samantha Norton?

Josiah D. Staysa #110597260 additional
Chris, I recently located a death record for Josiah. He died in Santa Clara Co., California on Nov 11, 1900 and his remains were sent to Mountain View, the town he had been living in since about 1896. That cemetery, begun in 1861, no longer exists. The land was deeded to the town in the 1930's and grave markers were turned face down, and covered with soil. The area is now called Pioneer Memorial Park. According to what I read on line, all burials were left in place. However, I have not found out if there is a list of the original burials there. At least there is now a death date for Josiah, theough we still don't know if his remains are in California or Pennsylvania, as you feel is likely.

Thanks again for your work in locating and preserving the information on these families.

RE: Rose Harmon
As long as Jesse is buried in the same lot as Edna and John, I tend to think Edna was married to Jesse.

RE: Rose Harmon
I wish some of the family remembered Edna's maiden name. So far I know she married Edward Harmon but not sure how long they were married as he was 20 years older than she was. We know she had Rose Mary. Some think there may have been another daughter but not sure of that. Then she married John Gayton, a black man. After that, the family lost track of her. If I find out anything more I will let you know.

RE: Rose Harmon
yes, I saw that but didn't realize it was the Edna I was looking for. I agree she was much younger than Edward.

Rose Harmon
I found Rose - Edward's daughter. She was Rose Mary Harmon Calhoun. She married Ernest Calhoun and had 2 daughters, Ricky and Kimberly. She was born 8/1/1954 and just died on 3/1/2015. Her obituary is in the Olean Times Herald. They have her father as Art Harmon which is incorrect. She will be buried in Mt View Cemetery. Her mother was Edna and she remarried John Gayton. There are siblings listed in the paper but think they are all half siblings. I found John, Rose's stepfather, buried in same cemetery but didn't find Edna.
