Mary Graves (7) was born in England. She married Moses Ventrous (or Ventris or Ventres) on 14 Jan. 1646/7 in Hartford, Conn. There is some uncertainty about Mary's name, and even whether she is a Graves. The Hartford Times, 18 July 1966 states: Moses Ventrous married Grace on 14 Jan. 1647. A marriage record at Hartford states the same thing.
Judd's History of Hatfield, Mass. says Moses Ventrous married 14 Jan. 1647 Mary Graves, daughter of Thomas Graves who married Sarah . Another source mentions a possible daughter of Thomas Graves named Mary or Elizabeth.
A note from the Gates-Dawes Memorial says Moses, William and Elizabeth Ventrous were probably children of William Ventrous.
Moses Ventrous was born about 1625 in Farmington, Conn. His will was dated 1693, and the inventory of his estate was dated 12 April 1697 in Hartford, Conn. (R 3)
