Narrative

Children of George Reeves, Jr. and Sarah MNU:
  1. Spencer Stuart Reeves
  2. Harriet A. Reeves, b. c1819, d. 1847
There is much evidence to support the belief that George Reeves, Sr.'s wife and George Jr.'s mother was Tabitha Geer, daughter of John Geer who died in Orange County in 1769. See Research Notes on George Reeves, Sr.'s page.

George Reeves, Jr., occupation "Hatter", of Orange County acquired 250 acres on Terrell's Creek from Anderson Strowd in April, 1810 and was given 180 acres by his father, George Reeves, Sr. in the same area in May, 1810. His father gave him an additional 100 acres in 1818. (See O. C. DB 13:326 and 363, and DB 18:399 - the 280 acres from his father was an original grant to John Buckner).

In 1822 George Reeves, Jr. was executor for the estate of his father (Will of George Reeves, O. C. WB D-605, 1821; DB 19:357, 21:187). George Reeves, Jr. apparently died in 1825 based upon the inscription on his tombstone. In 1838 the land of George Reeves, Jr., dec'd - 530 acres, the same total amount as above - was divided between "Spencer S. Reeves and Harriet Reeves his only heirs-at-law." (DB 28:208) There is also mention of the "widow dower line" in this division.

The 1820 census lists the household of George Reeves, Jr. as follows: 1 Male under 10; 1 Male 16-25; 1 Male 26-44; 1 Female under 10; 1 Female 26-44.
