John Durdan Reeves was born in Halifax County, North Carolina on 30 May 1759. He married Sarah Locke Elwell around 1788 in Cumberland County, North Carolina where several other Reeves individuals are recorded but no documentation of a family connection has yet been found.

The 1778 Halifax County will of Micajah Rawls left legacies to his half brothers John and Jesse Reves. It appears from this will that John Durdan Reeves' father had married a Rawls widow who was the mother of John and Jesse Reeves, but currently no records have been found in Halifax County that identify either his father or mother.

A 1791 Cumberland County deed by the heirs of his father-in-law Richard Elwell establishes his presence there but by the 1800 census he was recorded in Surry County, North Carolina.
