By 1838, Terrell is listed in the Arkansas census living in Carroll County, Arkansas Territory. He, his brother John and his father William are all recorded in the US census of 1840 in Carroll County. Those three in addition to Lenoir (Noah) are listed as taxpayers in Carroll County in both 1840 and 1841 and are joined by Gaston in the 1841 tax lists.

On the 20th of May, 1841, Terrell Reves received Federal Land Certificate No. 8512, for 159 acres in the NW quarter of Section 18, in Township 14N, of Range 10E (land located in Putnam County, Illinois), in the district of lands offered for sale at Galena. His brother, Lenoir, received Federal Land Certificate No. 8513 for 161½ acres in Section 19 on the same date. Lenoir did live in Illinois for a time, but there is no indication that Terrell moved back to that area.

On the 21st of Sept 1850, Terrell and his family are recorded in Izard County, Arkansas. He received Certificate #4626 from the General Land Office at Batesville for 40 acres in Izard County on 1 Mar 1856.

The history of Greenwood County, Kansas lists the Pleasant Grove township as being established in 1856 by Terrill Reeves. In the 1860 census of Woodson County, Kansas, several of Terrill's sons are recorded but Terrill, Hetty and the other children can't be located. The history of Greenwood also names Emeline Reeves as being the first child born in the Pleasant Grove township. She may be the child of Terrill but nothing has been found to document that.
