    • Dr. Calvin Graves Lea (1834-1907)

      The 1850 US Census (Yanceyville, Caswell County, North Carolina) has a 15-year-old Calvin Lea living in the Josiah Rucks household (probably a hotel or boarding house) and shown as a student (born in Caswell County). Whether these are the same people remains unconfirmed. The 1850 census record set forth below casts doubt, but it possible he was enumerated twice. Consider also that the 15-year-old student living in the Josiah Rucks household in 1850 was Calvin D. Lea, who also became a physician.
