NOTE: I feel fairly certain that this is Sarah "E" Hargrave. The cemetery listing says Sarah "A" but the monument photo says "E". On the 1880 Federal Census for Gallatin Co. Illinois, James is listed as married but no wife is listed which would support the death date of 1875.

HARGRAVES, Willis

WILLIS was born: 1764 in, North or South Carolina.
d: 10 AUG 1846 in Equality, Gallatin Co., Illinois.

He and wife Jane Brown relocated to Logan County, Kentucky, in 1790. Here they had nine children, Samuel, Margaret, Seth, Nancy, George, Rachel, Lee, Light, and Jane. The latter two died in infancy. Willis moved his family to Gallatin County in 1808 where, along with daughter Margaret and her husband James Ratcliff, they settled near the U.S. Salines at Equality. Willis, who had been active in the Kentucky Militia and was a lieutenant in 1797 and a captain by 1803, engaged his service in the War of 1812 mostly guarding settlements against native attack. He served in the 3rd Regiment, Captain Hargraves Company. Willis Hargrave was an important figure in early southeastern Illinois history. By 1812, four years after moving to Gallatin County, Willis Hargrave was made a member of a three-man commission, which included Leonard White and Phillip Trammel, to set legal boundaries for the U.S. Salines at Equality. Hargrave and William McHenry signed the Illinois Constitution on August 26, 1818. Willis Hargrave asserted his wishes to legalize slavery in the state. Hargrave was accused of establishing a proslavery organization and conspiring to bring slaves into the state. In December of 1823, Hargrave held a meeting of the "Friends of a Convention" aimed at amending the constitution to allow slavery. The slavery question was a statewide concern for many citizens and it appears that Hargrave was very much involved in the heated debate. No changes were made, however, and Illinois remained a free state. Willis died in 1846 at the age of 76.

* William M. Hargrave,

Son of:  George B. HARGRAVE  b. Oct. 30, 1797 in Butler Co., Ky; d.  Dec.17, 1841 in Gallatin Co., Ill.+ Lucinda McHenry b.  Sept.25, 1801 daughter of William & Hannah McHenry; mDec.20, 1819; d.  January 8, 1836

His first wife was Cynthia Ann Flanders who was born about 1826 according to the census data. They married on Feb. 6, 1845, according to the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index. They had four children in the 1850 census George, 4; John, 3; Willis, 1; and Mary E., 1 month. Cynthia presumably died between 1850 and 1852 because on March 29, 1853, he married Sarah E. Christian in Gallatin County. From the 1860 census they had one child still living at home, Alice, 7. None of the children from the first marriage appear in the household. William and Sarah had a second child William H. Hargrave who was born about 1861 who was still living at home in the 1870 and 1880 censuses. Sarah must have died at some point after the 1870 census. On April 4, 1876, William married his third wife Martha A. Kitchener and they had Frederick K. Hargrave, who was born in 1879"
