John Graves lived in Killingworth CT (listed as from there in 1716 deed for father's lands) until about 1724 when he moved to Saybrook CT.
Killingworth is now known as Clinton CT. Clinton is on the south shore of Connecticut. Hannah's father and her father-in-law, Joseph Wilcoxson, were both original landowners of 1663, when it was known as Hamanasset Plantation. It was sometimes called Kenilworth and is now Clinton CT. The land in this area is hilly and rolling, with forests.
Son Sylvanus Graves was a noted Revolutionary soldier.
