I descend from a Reeves in Madison Co., Ky. named Jeremiah Reeves.
He married a Deborah Lanham-my line from a son named Harvey Reeves who married Margaret Jane Woolery Reeves ca. 1838 in Madison Co., Ky. through a son named Joab Reeves who married Martha Gentry, d/o Bright Berry Gentry and Cynthia Gentry Moran Gentry (widow of Charles Moran). Joab's son Joseph Reeves was my mother's father.
My Reeves family lived in Warren, Trumbull Co., Ohio and I was born there in 1951.
My mother's siblings and their families have roots there still.
I believe Jeremiah's father to be William Reeves born in NC about 1740 and died in Madison Co., Ky. in 1821, a son of James Reeves *1710 Chowan Precinct, NC died 1781 in Guilford Co., NC.
Does this family look familiar to you at all? I am trying to prove the father of Jeremiah Reeves.
Thanks for any help,
