Reeves was this day produced before me and acknowledged by said Elijah Reeves Jr to be his act and deed & the same is duly recorded in my office. Given under my hand this 14th day of August 1821.

Spencer Reeves; however, this is the only instance of a middle initial with this individual and could in theory be someone else. In connecting this deed with the 1819 deed by the Sheriff this shows it to be the same one refenced as Elijah Reeves Jr and that he was at one time living in Scioto County, Ohio.
