GRAVERAET FamilySubmitted by: Jim Lalone June 2009
1. Gerrit GRAVERAET.
He married Sarah HARSEN,
(daughter of James HARSEN and unknown).
Sarah: "I have stated that Mr. Jacob Harsen was the first
purchaser of Harsen's Island. He had a family of seven children, five sons and
two daughters. His eldest daughter was the wife of Mr. Graveraet, who settled
with him on the island. Immediately after the purchase of the island from the
Indians, Mr. Graveraet died, leaving a family of four children, who, with their
mother, made their home principally with their grandfather, until grown up and
sufficiently old to take care of themselves. In the two families, thus united,
there were several serious accidents causing death of some of its members and
loss of limb to others. It appears that Mr. Harsen was brought up in the faith
and discipline of the Lutheran Church, and he endeavored to train his children
in accordance with the rules of that church. Although in a wilderness where wild
game was abundant, he forbade the use of fire-arms on the Sabbath. But one
Sabbath morning while all was quiet and the members of the family were all in
the house, a large flock of ducks lit on the shore near the house. The sight of
the ducks was so tempting to the eldest son that he seized his gun and attempted
to fire at the ducks, but the powder flashed in the pan; he ran into the house
to re-prime his gun. When entering, the butt of the gun struck the door, which
caused an explosion, the whole charge entering Miss Graveraet's arm, then a girl
of seven years. It was so frightfully mangled that she was immediately taken to
Detroit to have it amputated. Miss Graveraet spent most of the days of her
childhood in the family of Judge May, of Detroit, where she learned to sew, and
became so expert with the needle that few could excel her at various kinds of
needlework. She became my father's second wife in 1814, and was the mother of
Capt. Albert Stewart, of Detroit, and Garret G. Stewart Esq., of Harsen's
Island. The next serious accident that happened in the Harsen family was in
1800. At this time old Mr. Harsen was dead, and his son Barnard became head of
the family. It appears that a keg of powder had been placed in the parlor
chimney, and on Saturday evening several pounds had been weighed out to men that
had been at work in the harvest field during the week, and some had been spilt
on the hearth; by some means fire had been communicated to the powder, and the
whole keg of twenty pounds exploded, blowing the house into fragments, and
instantly killing Mr. Barnard Harsen and Mrs. Graveraet; a large pewter platter,
which was lying on the head of the keg, was driven with such force as to almost
cut Mrs. Graveraet in two; other members of the family were badly burned and
wounded, but recovered. At the time of this explosion, there was stopping with
Mr. Harsen a Moravian minister by the name of Denkey, who was a great smoker,
and it was surmised that he had emptied his pipe on the chimney, which set fire
to some paper and thus communicated with the powder. Denkey was not in the house
at the time of the explosion, and the conjecture that he was the cause, may have
been wrong. He wrote out a full statement of the accident and had it placed in
my step-mother's Bible, and when a boy I read the account as he gave it, but the
record is lost and I am writing from memory. At this explosion, a looking-glass
of my step-mother's was blown nearly a mile, and was found in the south channel
of River St. Clair; the frame and quicksilver were gone; it was put in a frame
again and kept by my step-mother as a relic of the accident. http://www.stewartfarm.org/history/aurasmemoirs.htm

1860 in Marquette, MI, occupation interpreter.
"We found Mr. Henry Graveraet
in town making preparations to go to Mackinac, having an appointment to the
Indian Department there. He took us in charge, and agreed with uncle to land us
at father's residence on Harsen's Island."
"The only error I detected,
was in spelling Mr. Graveraet's name. Mr. G. assisted in procuring scholars for
the mission school, and without his influence scarcely a scholar could be got.
He was my step-mother's brother, and uncle to Garret G. Stewart, of Harsen's
Island. After a trial of about two years, the mission was moved to the Island of
Mackinac, where it was assisted by Mr. Graveraet's brother Henry. "

Henry Garret Graveraet, aged 86, died in this village, on the 31st of Dec. last.
He was born in Detroit, and served under General Hull as an Indian farmer. After
the defection of General Hull, he was appointed by General Cass as one of his
chief interpreters, and was afterwards sent to Mackinaw to quiet the Indians,
who were becoming turbulent. Mr. Graveraet was an active participant in the
operation under General Harrison, and was one of the few who, with Col Croghan,
defended Fort Stevenson. He was wounded in the battle of Brownstown; was present
and active in the battle of the Thames and River Raisin; and was also at
Mackinaw when the American forces were defeated, he narrowly escaping with his
life. (Marquette Journal, Jan. 22, repeated in the Detroit Free Press, 7 Feb

"Robert J. Graveraet, widely known as the representative of Lake Superior and
its iron region, died at 40 years and eight months. He was an Indian Agent at
Mackinaw but being of an adventurous disposition, turned his attention to
exploring, and with a few others, discovered what is noe known as Bruce Mines in
Canada on Georgian Bay. Disposing of his interest in that mine, he came to
Marquette in 1846 - a complete wilderness, and might justly be called the
'Father of Marquette'. He has done much toward developing the iron resources of
this county and inaugurating the manufacture of iron from our native ore. His
desire to represent the county in a more public capacity, and on a wider field
of usefulness than a local agent of an iron company, caused him to loose the
agency of the Collins Iron Works, on his being elected Senator from the U.P., in
the State Legislature, in the fall of '56, but his prominence as a politician,
and his character as a man, were the means of his being appointed Receiver of
the U.S. Land Office, by President Buchanan. He was also Superinteendent of the
Marquette and Onotagon Railroad, and had the line surveyed under his personal
supervision. We are informed it was at considerable pecuniary sacrifice to
himself. After the survey was completed, Mr. Graveraet was not actively engaged
in business, but continued to show up, at every opportunity, the vast resources
of the country, besides taking a prominent part in all political movements. He
was a firm and devoted Democrat and we are an ardent admirer of the illustrious
statesman whose death, alas, we are now called to mourn and announce." (Detroit

A very remarkable history came to the knowledge of the writer, January, 1916,
concerning people who lived at this point, antedating any known to this date,
and which adds much to its historic interest.
In the year 1800, a little girl was born on the shores of Grand River, near the
present village of Muir, of French and Indian parentage. Her father was a noted
trader by the name of Joseph Bailly, the name in French being-spelled Bailey. He
was from an old Montreal family whose full name was "Bailey de Messin." After
living for many years at this point, he removed to Mackinac island, and from
there afterward removing to the present site of the city of Chicago, where there
was a town named "Baillytown" after him, and he became immensely wealthy and
died there. Her mother was an Indian princess of royal blood, she being the
daughter of Ottawa chieftain. Her name was "Bead-way-way," but afterward she was
christened "Angelique'' by a French priest, probably at Detroit as they often
went there. She was a sister to Black Cloud, who was sub-chief the village when
the whites came to the valley. Joseph Bailly and Angelique had six children-five
sons and one daughter, Sophia, the subject of this sketch. Her brothers were
Alexis, who became a merchant at St. Paul, on the Mississippi; Joseph, a
printer; Mitchell. a sculptor; Philip, an engraver, and Francis, who was
Sophia's youngest and favorite brother, is mentioned in earlier histories of
lonia county. When her father, Joseph Bailly, took his five sons from there to
be educated and learn their trades. jumped out of the canoe and swam ashore,
saying that he "did not to be educated, but wished to be a medicine man.'' He
stayed home lived with the Indians, and became renowned among them as their
greatest medicine man, and was called by them Be-nos-a-way.
Sophia traveled up and down Grand river many times with her father often making
the portages and going to Detroit. When she was about twelve years old, her
father employed two Ottawa Indians to take her in a canoe to Mackinac island,
where he himself had previously located- She arrived at the island on the day
when, in consequence of the War of 1812, there was a battle between the American
and British soldiers taking place and she heard the booming of cannon and the
strains of martial music. Her father, fearing for the safety of his daughter,
rehired the Indians at exorbitant price to take her to the home of her eldest
brother, who was conducting a trading post on the Mississippi river at St. Paul.
Following a route that Father Marquette had taken more than a hundred vears
before, the little party passed along the northern shores of Lake Michigan and
Green bav, up the Fox river, thence down the Wisconsin river into the
Mississippi river and on to St. Paul. They had passed through a hostile country,
among savage tribes where they dared not speak above a whisper, and to be
discovered, meant certain death. But the trip was made in safety and after
spending several years at St. Paul, the little girl became a young woman and
returned by the same route to Mackinac island, where she was adopted and
educated in French by Mme. La Fromboise. There she met Henrv G. Graveralt. son
of a German-American Revolutionary hero, who was a resident of Mackinac island
and afterward married him. She taught a French Catholic school for the Indians
at St. Ignace for fifteen years. There she raised her family, one boy and two
girls, Garrett, Alice and Roseine.
Just prior to the Civil War the family moved to Little Traverse, now Harbor
Springs. Here her son, Garrett, organized the Indian company known as Company K,
First Michigan Sharpshooters, became a lieutenant, and his father a sergeant in
the same company. With Grant he crossed the Rapidan, and plunged into the
terrible Battle of the Wilderness. The company remained in active service from
that time until the end of the war. More than half were killed and all the rest
wounded. Garrett and his
father were both killed in the campaign before Richmond. Mrs. Graveralt finally
received a pension, and with the back pay allowed built a comfortable home,
where she died in 1891 and where her daughter, Roseine, still lives.
From her brother. Francis (Be-noss-a-way). Mrs. Graveralt learned much of the
Indian manners, customs, legends, and traditions, and was noted for her gift as
a story-teller. She met and entertained General, afterward President, Zachary
Taylor, while on the Mississippi. She was personally acquainted with James J.
Strong, the Mormon leader, who visited her school and told her to never fear the
Mormons as he would see that none of them ever did her any harm. She knew
Schoolcraft, the historian; Beaumont, the famous surgeon, and many other noted
people. By all she was welcomed as an exceedingly interesting and well-informed
woman, and a great friend of the American Indian, whom she helped to civilize
and educate. Her stories have been preserved and are given in a lecture
(Michigan Indians, their manners, customs, legends and traditions) by the son of
her daughter. Roseine, John C. Wright, of Harbor Springs, Michigan, who has also
published two books, "Lays of the Lakes" and "Stories of the Crooked Tree," the
last largely consisting of the legends of the Ottawa tribe. (Ref: HISTORY OF

"In the fight before Petersburg, on the 17th of June, 1864, Lieut. G. A.
Graverat, a gallant young officer from Little Traverse, laid down his life for
his country. He was the second lieutenant of Company K., First Michigan
Sharpshooters. While fighting by the side of his father in the trenches, he saw
his parent shot dead. Bearing the body to a safe spot, weeping bitterly, he dug
a grave with an old tin pan in the sand, and buried it. Then drying his tears,
the devoted son returned to the battle. His rifle told with terrible precision
among the rebel officers, till he was disabled, wounded in the left arm. He was
brought to Washington, where the arm was amputated at the shoulder, resulting in
his death on the 10th of the following month. Lieut. Graverat was partly of
Indian descent. He was but 24 years old, was highly educated, being master of
several modern languages, besides being a fine portrait and landscape painter
and an accomplished musician."
"Garrett A. Gravereat, Lt. of Co. K, 1st Michigan Sharpshooters, aged 27 years,
wounded in action at Petersburg, died from the effects in Washington. He was a
Chippewa Indian of the Bear River band. " (Detroit Free Press, 20 Jul 1864).

She married Bertin RAMSAY.
Bertin: BERTIN RAMSAY,
deceased, who was for many years engaged in business in Appleton, was born
October 13, 1850, in Cheltenham, England, and was a member of one of the oldest
and most honored families of Scotland, descended from Sir John Ramsay, Knight of
Balmain and Fasque, County Kincardine, who was created by James III a lord of
parliament in 1433, and sat under the title of Lord Bothwell. Adhering, however,
to his unfortunate sovereign, against whom the nobles of Scotland rebelled, his
lordship was outlawed, and his estates subjected to confiscation, in 1488, by
the first parliament of James IV, while that monarch conferred the dignity of
Earl of Bothwell upon Hepburn, Lord Hailes, whose descendant became the third
husband of Mary, Queen of Scots, and was the last of his family that enjoyed the
peerage. In 1498, the disgraced lord received, however, a royal pardon, but
under the simple designation of John Ramsay, and he obtained at the same time
some lands in the counties of Forfar and Wigtoun, which favors were followed by
a charter, in 1510, of the Barony of Balmain. The grandson of this personage,
Sir Gilbert Ramsay, was followed by Sir Alexander Ramsay, at whose death the
title passed to Sir Thomas Ramsay, from him to Sir Alexander Burnett Ramsay, and
from the latter to Sir Alexander Ramsay, the father of Bertin Ramsay. Bertin
Ramsay received his education in Cheltenham college, in England, and in 1877
came to Appleton with Mr. Henry Hewitt of Menasha and his cousins, Falkland and
Duncan MacKinnon. Mr. Ramsay soon became interested in lumber, furnishing the
means for the erection of a mill, and decided to remain in this country. In his
first venture he was associated with Charles Jones, and later they erected a
mill at Menominee, Michigan, where they continued in business until 1896, and in
this year the Wisconsin Malt and Grain Company was founded and a large plant
erected. Mr. Ramsay was associated with this concern until his death, which
occurred June 23, 1907. He was one of the leading members of the Episcopal
Church, and was one of the principal contributors when the handsome new church
of All Saints was erected, and served for several years as a warden. He was a
Blue Lodge Mason and a member of all of the leading Appleton clubs. He was
remarkably fond of his home, and was a man whose death is a distinct loss to his
adopted city. On June 29, 1881, Mr. Ramsay was united in marriage with Kate
Graveraet King, the estimable daughter of Daniel Webster and Sarah Ann (Graveraet)
King, who settled in Green Bay and was there engaged in a drug business. Henry
Graveraet, the father of Mrs. King, was a. native of Holland and became an early
settler among the Indians, learning nine different Indian languages and making
numerous treaties with them, and the United States Government. He married
Charlotte Isabella Livingston, who learned three Indian languages and was
idolized by the Indians, who called her the Daughter of the Little White Chief.
Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay had two children: Hallie Ellen, who married R. B. Watson, a
New York mining engineer, has one daughter, Patricia.; and Ethel Katherine,
living at home. Both are graduates of Grafton Hall, Fond du Lac, and of Dresden,
Germany, where they spent several years studying music, specializing on the
violin and piano.
