Rev. 4 June 2005, Gen. 927







Elizabeth Catherine Graves (1) was born about 1822 in Lexington, Fayette Co., KY, and died 4 Nov. 1905 in Oregon City, Clackamas Co., OR.  According to the 1880 census, her father was born in KY and her mother in VA.  She married William Henry Harrison Kellogg, son of Solomon Kellogg and Rebecca Turner.  He was probably called Harrison[1].  He was born 25 Dec. 1812 in Sempronius, Cayuga Co., NY, and died 2 Jan. 1885 in Oregon City, OR.  According to the 1880 census, both his parents were born in CT.  Both Elizabeth and William were buried in Mt. View Cem., Oregon City, OR.

On the assumption that Fayette Co., KY is Elizabeth’s correct place of birth, the 1820 and 1830 censuses for Fayette Co. were examined.  In 1830, the only household with a daughter of the right age who could not be identified was that of Sarah Graves in Lexington, page 275, with 2 males 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 1 female 0-5, 2 females 10-15, and 1 female 40-50.  The only other household with a daughter of the right age in 1830 was that of Thomas S. (Sims) Graves, and all his children are known.  In the 1820 census, the only household that seemed to match was that of Elijah Graves, page 77, with 1 male 0-10, 1 male 26-45, 1 female 0-10, and 1 female 26-45.  It is not known which genealogy this Elijah Graves is part of.

The 1850 census for New Haven, Huron Co., OH, page 189, listed Harrison Kelogg, 36, NY, blacksmith, Elizabeth C., 25, KY, Armilda, 9, KY, Rebecah, 6, KY, Artemus B., 2, OH.  The 1860 census for Lyons, Cook Co., IL, Lyonsville P.O., listed W. H. Kellogg, 40, farmer, Elizabeth, 36, Armilda, 17, Rebecca, 15, Artemus B., 12, Catharine W., 8, James H., 6, Sylvilera, 5, William S., 3, Charles, 2, Ethan E., 3/12.  The 1870 census for Platte, Andrew Co., MO, Whitesville P.O., page 324, listed Harrison Kellogg, 55, farmer, Catharine, 46, Artemus B., 21, farm laborer, Rebecca, 23, Henry, 17, farm laborer, Sylvia, 15, Solomon, 13, Edwin, 6, Harrison, 8, George, 5, Abraham L., 4.  The 1880 census for Oregon City, Clackamas Co., OR, page 226A, listed William H. H. Kellog, 67, farmer, Catherine, 57, James H., 16, George, 14, Abraham L., 12, Rebekah, 26, William S., 22, farming, Ethan E., 18, farming, and Edward, 20, farmer.

The first 2 children listed below were born in KY, the next 4 in OH, the next 6 in IL, and the thirteenth one in MO.  Although Abraham L. Kellogg was listed in both the 1870 and 1880 censuses, R‑1 did not list Abraham but did list Albert Kellogg as the younest child.  (R‑1)

[1] Both the 1850 and 1870 censuses showed his name as Harrison.  It seems likely that this was the name he generally went by, and he used William for more formal, legal situations.
