Note: Wm. Reeves, one of a number of petitioners, is listed twice as petitioning for 400 acres in Edgecombe. It is not clear if this constitutes two petitions or whether it is a duplicate entry. One entry is "Reaves" and the other "Reeves".

There is nothing to indicate whether the individual referenced is William Reeves or his son, William Reeves, Jr.
