Seeking information on Judge John Reaves, d. 1887, probably at Wedowee, Randolph County, Alabama. Was state representative for Randolph County, 1851-52; county judge and clerk of court; clerk of Wedowee Baptist Church 1847-1887.

Seek birth, marriage, and death dates/places; name of parents, spouse, and children (I know of one child, Mentoria), and any other useful information.

Many thanks in advance.

There was a death date for a William Reaves Sr. (16 Apr. 1826) also listed in the journal and when we checked old obit from GA newspapers we found the following:
Rev. William Reeves died 4-16-1826, for many years a respectable minister of the Baptist denomination.
It was in the Georgia Reporter & Christian Gazette, out of Sparta issue dated 5-1-1826.

This might be his father?
