Very little information is available regarding Elisha Reeves beyond that contained in Daniel Reeves RW pension application. His 1807 marriage and the 1820 and 1830 Census are the only documents found at present.

He was listed on the 1811 tax list of Davidson County, Tennessee along with his father, Daniel and brothers James and Elijah.

Elijah was not mentioned in the 1824 will of his father Daniel Reeves although since Daniel only mentioned his wife and daughters in that will and none of his sons, it may just be that he had given them their legacies before his death as was often common.

In the 1820 census, his household consists of 3 M <10; 1 M 26-44; 1 F <10; 1 F 10-15 and 1 F 26-44.

His household in 1830 lists 2 M <5; 3 M 5-9; 2 M 10-14; 1 M 15-19; 1 M 40-49; 1 F 15-19; 1 F 40-49.

He may be the Elisha Reeves recorded in Public Land Survey Township Plats, compiled 1789–1946 in 1839 with a tract of land adjoining Jesse Reeves, cousin of his father Daniel.
