  • Note:
    April 9, 1996 I (Sue Reeves) received a letter from Aunt Elise telling some more about the Reeves' family history. She and I have been writing each other for two or three years and exchanging family facts or what we can find. She has never mentioned any history, just facts.
    *"Uncle Eb and Uncle Ab, as well as the Freemans, left the Waverly area several years before Daddy and Mother did. She states she was 8 and one-half and Bill was 4 years of age. We left there in February 1929 and moved to Kennett with the help of Grandfather Cowart and with nothing but household furniture, a model T Ford and a team of mules. I'm not sure about any farm equipment. We never did live near Union City. Mother wanted to buy near Daddy's relatives. He was close to Uncle Eb.
    Grandfather George Washington Reeves died several years before I was born. I suppose he is buried somewhere near the Bend (the name of the community near Duch or Duck River area between Waverly and Loberville). I was unable to find a tombstone in that cemetery in the early 80's. Talmidge Reeves (son of Rome Reeves, Daddy's cousin) who lived on the next farm from us went with me and Merle to that cemetery. Some of the Talmidges' relatives are buried there.
    Mary Turner Reeves, my grandmother, lived with Mother and Daddy a few years, but went to live with Uncle Eb and then with Uncle Ab. She died while living with Uncle Ab (whose wife died not long afterward). So I guess Uncle Ab was buried by Aunt Fannie near Rives. Uncle Eb lived in Union City. His son Robert was killed by a train when he was 13 and buried in Union City.
    I think one of the other Reeves was buried in the cemetery at Rives, Tenn. might have been one of George Washington Reeves' older sons by his first wife, but I'm not sure. [reeves.ftw]

  • Note:
    Doing genealogy work the week of February 20, 2015 due to a foot of snow on the ground. I was checking to see if there might be new information on the Reeves' side of the family and came across the death information on Lessie Elise Reeves Humble. No one from the family had gotten in touch with us about it. But the Reeves family is like that. They only call if they want something. So I dug further and found her information on Ancestry.com.
