I took a look at your blog where you discussed Adam and George Graves.
Peter Wilson Coldham in his book American Migrations 1765-1799 mentions a
Captain Adam Graves and his brother Lieutenant George Graves. They were
loyalists from Maryland who were imprisoned and escaped to NY. George is
supposed to have gone to Canada. I'll send you a copy.
