Surnames: BOND GRAVES JOHNSON ALLRED OWINGS
I believe the brother of Alice Eugenia Graves Bond was Luther Johnson Graves. Their parents were Cass Graves (1840 - 1890) and Matilda Allred (1854 - 1890).

The parents died in the same year and I don't know if there was an accident that took them at the same time or if they just died in the same year. The children were left as orphans.

Alice was an adult when they died, but Luther was a teen. He became a hobo. He couldn't read or write as an adult until he married Effie Ann Owings (1873 - 1959).

I am searching for Luther's parents and can find very little. I'm unsure if his father's real first name was Cass or if it was Lucas or Casper. He is listed on one family tree as C. Cass Graves. I can't find any census or other records for him.

I also can't find records of Matilda Allred.

I have found a probable father for Cass Graves as William J Graves (1820 - ?) and a probable mother of Martha Johnson (? - ?).

If anyone can help me with any information, I would appreciate it.
