This Reeves family reportedly traveled to Kentucky together with the Elisha DeWitt and Timothy Downey families on the Ohio River in the 1780's. There Elijah Reeves settled in a new village called Washington in the settlement of Limestone.

There is an 1817 deed in Fleming County naming "all the lawful heirs of Elijah Reeves, deceased" including Spencer Reeves, Elijah Reeves, Benjamin Reeves, William Roys (Rice) and Elizabeth his wife, Peggy Reeves, Rody Reeves, Thomas Reeves, Anthony Worley and Jenny his wife, all of Fleming County Kentucky except Thomas Reeves and Anthony Worley and his wife of Ohio.
