Family of John Reeves

Family of John Reeves of Granville Co., NC

Image The parentage of John Reeves is presently undocumented, although it is probable he was the son of Malachi Reeves and grandson of William Reeves of Location 9 on the adjacent map. DNA testing places descendants of these three individuals in DNA Group 3 but can not confirm their precise relationship.

John is probably one of the 5 tithes reported by Malachi Reeves in the 1771 Granville County Tax List. John Reeves is first positively identified on the 1780 tax list of the Fishing Creek area of Granville County NC along with Malachi and most of his married sons.

By 1789 he is recorded in the Pendleton District of South Carolina where he migrated along with Burgess Reeves, another of the sons of William Reeves.
The map above 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. This John was not explicitly mentioned in that article and he is included here for completeness.
