Elijah Sr. in the deed from 1812, he must be Elijah Reeves Jr.. However, there is a witness to this deed who signed as Elijah Reives Jr. Since Elijah Sr. was no longer alive, it may be that this is a reference to a younger Elijah, possibly Elijah son of Spencer Reeves or Elijah son of Thomas Reeves.
