Family of Henry Reeves of Essex County, Virginia

Image Henry Reeves, Sr. was granted 600 acres on Tigner's Creek on the south side of the Rappahannock River in Virginia (location 4 on the adjacent map) in what is now Essex County on 1 January 1666.

Henry left a will when he died in 1687 as did the majority of his children at their deaths. There is no clear pedigree detailing an extended listing of Henry Reeves' descendants.

A very few whose lineage can be documented as descending from this family are recorded in DNA Group 9.

At one time it was believed that George Reeves of Grayson County, Virginia was a descendant of Henry Reeves but DNA has not supported that theory.
The map and above text both first appeared in May 2017 as part of post entitled Early Reeves Families in Colonial America researched and written by Beverly for the blog Reeves, Reaves, and More Rives she co-authors and is included here with her permission.
