Numerous websites and family trees name Thomas Courtney Reeves as the father of Dr. James Reeves of Charles County. Dr. James Reeves was the father of Sarah Ann Reeves, mother of Dr. Samuel Mudd who was famously tried and convicted as a conspirator in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

Thomas Courtney Reeves' will does name his wife Elizabeth Reeves and Dr. James Reeves as the next of kin; however, there are two different instances in the will where Thomas Courtney Reeves refers to James Reeves as his COUSIN. James Reeves is identified as one of the children of Thomas Reeves in the estate of Joseph Padgett recorded in Charles County Orphan's Court Proceedings 1812-1814, Pg 264.
