I realize your message was written four years ago, but I just found it today.

Jacob Stites Hand and "Sally" (Sarah Hataway) Graves were my ggg grandparents. I have names of four of their children, but didn't know about Scilvitha Stites Hand. Do you have a list of their children?

Sara Stites's mother was named "Silvitha" or "Silvithia" Flowers and her father was Jacob Stites. I have not been able to learn the names of Jacob Stites' parents. Thomas Hand's parents were Levi Hand and Ester Hewitt.

One of Jacob Stites Hand and Sally Graves' daughters, Sarah Elizabeth Hand was my gg grandmother. She was born 6/25/1836 and died Dec.16,1900.

I do have a little information about Silvitha Flowers' parents if you need it.

If you have the names of Jacob Stites parents and/or the children of Sally and Jacob Stites Hand, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, Jean Moyers
