Quick Bio

Albert Gallatin Graves was born in Orange Co. Virginia in 1813 but lived in Missouri before arriving in McKinney with his younger brother Isaac in 1857. Like his brother, he farmed west of town. He married Frances J. Harrison (also from Orange Co., VA) and had seven daughters and three sons, including James “Wick” Graves. It has been claimed that his wife Frances was a first cousin to President William Henry Harrison (1773-1841). However, her family and the ninth President have no connection.
