Generation No. 4

Notes for WILLIAM J. GRAVES:

He was a stone mason by trade and worked with his father in Brick Manufacturing. He hauled the first load of bricks for what is now the Coldwater Community Hospital.

He and his wife, Mariam, spent four years in South Dakota, homesteading a ranch which he later sold to his son, Clare. Clare was a risk taker, swashbuckling type who is reputed to have made a fortune in the Black Hills of the Dakotas mining gold. I remember him showing up in Coldwater wearing gold rings, driving a Cadillac, smoking big stogies and drinking his rye while putting a cud of chewing tobacco in his mouth. I don't think anyone really knew whether it was a show or he really did have money.
