Literary Seagraves

As most of you know, the family name has not been used often for characters in fiction. The best known is Harry Seagraves, the small-town Georgia lawyer, in Pete Dexter's 1988 best-seller, "Paris Trout".
We now have a new entry: James Seagraves (yes, my namesake) in Terry Devane's newest book "Juror Number Eleven". The novel is a legal thriller set in Boston. Seagraves is an Assitant District Attorney for Suffolk County and the antagonist for the defense team throughout the book.
Juror Number Eleven was published by G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, and was released to book stores just this month.
Terry Devane is a pseudonym for Jeremiah Healy, a well known and respected mystery writer from Boston.
If anyone can identify any other Seagraves characters from fiction, I would be very interested in hearing about them.
