I am looking for information about my Reeves / Reaves family line through Wayne County North Carolina.
My direct paternal lineage beginning with my Grandfather is:
Richard Ivey Reeves (1920 - 1967) : Charles Cornelius Reeves (1893 - 1953) : John Reeves (have seen as John A. Reeves) (1861 - 1907) : James Reeves (b. around 1832 ?)
My grandfather Richard Ivey Reeves was one of 4 children:
Richard Ivey Reeves, Charles Lemuel Reeves, John Raymond Reeves, and Edward Earl Reeves
My ggrandfather Charles Cornelius Reeves was one of 6 children:
Charles Cornelius Reeves, Lovie Ann Reeves, Mary Ella Reeves, Hetty May Reeves (have seen as Mae), Troy A. Reeves, and Annie Lamb Reeves
My gggrandfather John Reeves was one of 3 children:
John Reeves, Lemuel Reeves (was in at least one census as Samuel), and Marinda Reeves (have seen as Miranga, Miranda, etc.)
I have no information about my gggrandfather James Reeves aside from the following:
- In the 1860 census for the Indian Springs Township in Wayne County NC, he is 28 years old living with his wife Mary (have seen her maiden name as possibly Bartlett) who is 18. They have 1 child, Lemuel, who is age 1.
- In the 1870 census, James is no longer listed, and Mary has remarried one David Newell. Living with David Newell are Lemuel Reeves, John A. Reeves, and Marinda Reeves. I have found the David Newell / Mary Reaves marriage record online. Mary's last name on the marriage record is spelled Reaves instead of Reeves.
Any information about any of these indivudals would be much appreciated
