Sabra Roundy and Selah Graves were married at First Church, Rockingham, Vermont on Apr 6, 1794.
Selah was a blacksmith and wagon-maker. He settled his family in Springfield VT in 1796. He moved to Pike, Allegany County, NY, where he bought a farm about a mile from the town, about 1822.
The 1800 Census for Springfield, Windsor Co. VT lists the members of Selah's household as 3 males under 10 (Bela, Ralph and John), 1 male 26-44 (Selah), and 1 female 26-44 (Sabra).
When Sabra's father died in 1805, his will bequeathed her "30 acres and one likely cow."
Daughter Harriet married a grandson of her father, Nathan, named Phineas Bigelow Woodward. He was the son of Harriet's first cousin, Betsey Graves who was a daughter of Nathan's son Phineas.
