For more on the witchcraft inquiry pertaining to this family, see my article in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 155, July 2001 "More on the Identity of Abigail (Graves) Dibble, and Her tragic Death and Suspicions of Witchcraft", by Norbert Bankert.

áááááRecords of William Graves are few and scattered both in time and location. He appears first in Stamford Connecticut in 1642 and next in Springfield Massachusetts in 1647. In 1656 and 1657, and again in 1666/7 he is found in Stamford. Subsequent records of William Graves are found in Newtown, Long Island, New York, until his death in 1679. He probably married three times and possibly had five or more children; however, there has yet to be found any birth or marriage records for his children, and only one marriage record for William.
áááááThe origin or birth of William Graves is, as yet, unknown. The first known record of William is in November of 1642 when he is allotted a house lot in the distribution of lands by the town of Stamford Connecticut. The first settlers of Stamford had arrived there in the summer of 1641. On a list of those designated as "Pioneers to the end of 1642" is the name of William Graves.
áááááOn 7 November 1647, William Graves married in Springfield, Massachusetts, Sarah (_____) Dibble, widow of John Dibble of Springfield. John Dibble and his wife had resided in Springfield, however, it appears that they had removed to Stamford prior John's death. Sarah was pregnant when her husband died and probably moved back to Springfield where she married William Graves the following year. Sarah died in Stamford 13 September 1656. Whether Sarah was the mother of any of William Graves children is unknown. At a court session in 1647, Sarah Graves is said to have claimed that her children were holier than all the others because hers were "naturally better born." Goodwife Ackerly and Goodwife Bourns were witnesses to this inexcusable boast.
áááááWilliam Graves may have removed to Newtown, Long Island, at some point after his wife's death. However, in 1666/7, we find William again in Stamford, whether as a resident or a visitor is uncertain. Between January 30'th and February 4'th, 1666/7, depositions were taken in Stamford regarding suspicions of witchcraft surrounding the death of Abigail (Graves) Dibble. Abigail was the daughter of William Graves, and the wife of Samuel Dibble. Abigail had died shortly after the birth of her daughter, Abigail, born on the 19'th of January. It appears that Samuel Dibble had made accusations against William Graves concerning the possibility of witchcraft on the part of William in causing Abigail's death. The outcome of the depositions is not stated, however, it would appear that William Graves was exonerated or punished lightly. One possible outcome is recorded nine days after the depositions in Stamford, on 13 February 1666/7, when William Graves, called of Newtown on Long Island, made two deeds in Stamford. The first was for two pieces of land, evidently in Stamford, to Samuel Dibble of Stamford [his son-in-law]. The second deed was for a house and home lot in Stamford, to William Newman of Stamford, who owned the lot next to William Graves. The second deed notes that the grantor was also conveying his seats in the meeting house. (For more on these depositions see the above mentioned article).
áááááWilliam Graves would bury all of his children and three wives before his death in 1679. William, his son John, and a Hannah Graves, all died within a few days of each other in June/July of 1679, almost certainly of some prevailing illness. Johns will is dated and signed by mark 11 June 1679, and he is called "deceased" when the inventory is appraised two days later on 13 June. John left legacies to his father William and "my sister Hannah or her children". The will of William Graves is dated and signed 13 June 1679. He is called "deceased" when the inventory is appraised on 20 June 1679. His estate was appraised at £219 9s 8d. William left legacies to "my Grand children, the Children of my Daughter Hannah Grave," and to "my Grand childe Abigaill Deeble now Living in the Collony of Conecticutt in New England", and mentions items which "were my son John's". By 8 July 1679, "his daughter Hannah likewise departed this life." It is probable that Hannah was actually his daughter-in-law by an unnamed son.
