Wait: The House already has two Graves — we know Sam, from MO 6, andTom, from GA 14.
Would a third Graves make that surname the most common in the House?
The House currently has fourJohnsons, four Millers, and four Smiths
But three Graves would put the name in pretty rare territory. The House has threeBishops, three Davises, three Rogers, three Scotts, and three Thompsons
There are lots of pairs in the House, including twoPeters, two Kings, and several Irish pairs: Maloney, McCarthy, Murphy, and Brady.
