Family of George Reeves (Reves), Sr. of Grayson Co., VA

Image George Reeves of Grayson County, Virginia migrated from the Neuse River basin in Johnston County, North Carolina to the New River area along the border between Grayson, Virginia and Ashe, North Carolina in 1767 (location 13 on the adjacent map).

George Reeves is documented as a Revolutionary War Patriot by the DAR based upon his service as a Lieutenant in McDonald's Company in Montgomery County, Virginia. DNA of three descendants of George Reeves matches that of descendants of William Reves of Location #11 on the adjacent map. George along with his father-in-law Richard Burton can also be found in the records of early Orange and Johnston counties before leaving that area around 1765. In 1805, George Reeves gave a statement in a court case indicating that he arrived in the New River area of southwestern Virginia in 1767 which would agree with his absence from Johnston County circa 1765.

George Reeves' descendants are found in DNA Group 6A.
