July 12, 1863 - October 7, 1949
Hubert Graves was born in New York state, a son of Lewis and Adelphia (nee Baker) Graves. He came to York Township with his family (Ella, his wife and Ethel/Dwight, his children) in 1901 from Brothertown Township in Calumet County. His wife’s niece, Lillie Lavey and her husband, Frank, also came to Clark County the same year but originally settled in Grant Township before moving to York Township in the 1920s. Hubert Graves was a member of the Lincoln School Board and also the York Town Clerk. Per a 1906 plat map, Hubert Graves first lived on a farm in Section 15 (later known as the Hubing farm). He then lived for years with his family in Section 21 in the brick house located on the east side of County Highway K about a mile north of County Highway C, the same house where his grand-nephew, Glenn Lavey and his wife, Elizabeth, also lived for many years.
