George E. Graves

Rutland Daily Herald, Oct. 17, 1918:

The body of George E. Graves, who died in Washington D.C., arrived in the city yesterday afternoon, accompanied by his sons, Robert C. Graves of Milwaukee, Wis., and Lieut. Sheldon H. Graves of the ordinance department of the army, who is stationed in Washington. The interment will take place this morning at 10 o'clock in Evergreen cemetery.

Capt. Graves was born in Rutland in 1834 and was educated in the Rutland schools of Miss Charlotte Williams and Rev. Dr. Hicks. In Rutland he was a partner in his father's business, the tanning of leather and was also a pharmacist.

During the Civil war he was appointed by President Lincoln commissary of subsistence, with the rank of captain and served in New Orleans under Gen. Banks. For a number of years he was employed in the war department at Washington. In 1859 he married Mary L. Niles of Wilmington, Del., who died a few years later, and in 1873 he was married to Elizabeth Sheldon of Middlebury. Besides the two sons, Capt. Graves is survived by a daughter, Mrs. George B. Spencer of St. Paul.
