I do not have a son named Reuben for John Cleveland & Mary (Mollie) McCann. It helps us and hurts us that they all gave their children the same names.

I have the eldest son of John & Mollie as Larkin born in 1848. I also have the eldest son of John & Comfort Gilbert Cleveland as Reuben Larkin and born in 1848.

I have a son named Reuben born circa 1732 to John Cleveland and Elizabeth Coffey, who was dec'd before 1778, when the will of this John Cleveland was proved.

In the early days of my reseaarch (over 40 years ago) have gleaned a lot of my info on these families from the old Cleveland Genealogies compiled in 1899 by two Cleveland cousins, Edmond Janes Cleveland and Horace Gillette Cleveland, tracing the Northern line of Moses Cleveland. Although there is some good info if you can find a source, there are many errors in this publication on the Southern Clevelands.

Having said that I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.

John Wesley Cleveland was my GGgrandfather too. He and his wife Nancy Moved from Hart Ga.to Douglas, Al.He bought Land and built a big house He and Nancy Had seven children in Hart, Ga. and five was born in Douglas, Marshall County, Al. When My Ggrandfather was about three years old around 1886. All the children was running around the house chasing the mule. My Ggrandfather was hiding behind the chimney and when all the children ran by he went after them and the mule was chasing the kids, and the mule kicked him in the head.Well John and Nancy took Thomas into the house and sent for the doctor.The Doc said that he was not going to make it cause when he was kicked it took off some of the bone. Well My Ggreandfather didn't die. John Wesley Cleveland Planted lots of Cotton on his land, he was very polite and soft spoken They never said a bad word,and went to church on Sunday. Your Ggrandfather Ruben was my Ggandfathers Thomas and George, Brother.
