For many years Sarah, the wife of Thomas Reeves, Jr. was mistakenly believed to be the wife of his father, however, Sarah as the wife of Thomas Reeves does not appear in the records of Spotsylvania County until after the death of Thomas Reeves, Sr. in 1760. Recent research of the deed records of Essex County has produced a deed by Thomas Reeves and Sarah his wife which identify her as Thomas' cousin, the daughter of Ann Reeves and Francis Attwood.
