CommentarySome names listed before and after the presumed household are included for context and possible consideration.
The household is presumed to be comprised of:
Joseph Reeve (head)
Abigail Reeve (née MNU) (wife)
Joseph Reeve Jr. (son)
Benjamen Reeve (son)
David Reeve (son)
Hezekiah Reeve (son)
Solomon Reeve (son)
Abigail Reeve (daughter)
Mary Reeve (daughter)
Other documents of the time support this household grouping.
There has been common discussion of "Margarett Hallock widdow" being included in this Reeve household. Margaret Hallock is known to have had a daughter Abigail Hallock, so it has been theorized that Joseph's wife is this Abigail Hallock, with Abigail's widowed mother living with them here. However, other than the name placement in this census, there is no other supporting information yet found for this theory.
There is also common discussion of "Dorathy Ozmon" being included in this Reeve household. There are many Osman's in Southold at the time, but no other mention of this Dorothy yet found in records of the time. There is no other supporting information yet found for this theory.
