Can anyone help with these queries?

Samuel J Roan/Rowan and his wife Mary [Graves] Rowan came with their family 
from Bladen Co shortly after the Civil War.  Mary  is one of the children of 
Nathaniel and Lucy [Cheshire] Graves of Robeson/Bladen Co.  Their four eldest 
were in the Civil War, Mordecai (misspelled Murdock) died of disease in 
Winchester, VA, Sampson B Graves died of wounds received at Ox Hill, VA, 
John F and Nathan R Graves survived with disabilities.  
     I was looking for Mordecai's two children Virginia B and Lucy G Graves in 
the 1880 LDS census when I found them in the household of S J Bowan
 (misspelled on LDS l880?).  This is how I found Mary and who she had married.  
Mary is buried in Bellevue cemetery in New Hanover, I don't know if Samuel is there.  
Newton N Rowan his wife and some children are in Oakdale (I found on cemetery
transcription).  I don't know yet what happened to Mordecai's Virginia or Lucy Graves.  
Any information on this Graves family welcome.
