Graves, S. D.

S. D. Graves had a mercantile business and hotel where the Allen Block and now the root beer stand is located (Loyal, Clark County, Wis.). S. D. Graves claimed to be the first postmaster. It was in his store and there wasn't much choice about it. Although it is evident the settlers used some kind of communication, if only the hollow stump southwest of Loyal, which was a sort of post office shared with Greenwood settlers. It is well known that the people were somewhat up on the affairs of the nation when President Lincoln's first call went out for Union volunteers, the Graves family hadn't arrive yet.
