Family of Thomas Reeves

Family of Thomas Reeves of Charles Co. & St. Mary's Co., MD

Image The large Reeves family of Charles and St Mary's Counties of southern Maryland appears to descend from Thomas Reeves and his wife Mary Upgate although only one individual from a member of that family who migrated to Ohio has participated in DNA testing.

There is one other individual who matches this descendant of Thomas Reeves and he descends from John Reeves who died in Craven County, North Carolina in 1790. That individual's lineage had been a mystery and the connection to the Maryland Reeves' family has been an excellent clue to his origins. The probate records of Charles and St. Mary's counties are relatively extensive and most appear to be extant.

Additional participants in the Reeves DNA project would be a great boon to research of this family. Other descendants of this lineage migrated to Rowan County, North Carolina, Wilkes County, Georgia and eventually as far as Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
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.

Person Pages have been created within TRP for the following descendants of this individual. Please see footnote [F1] below.

[F1]   Family pages within TRP often may not document all of the known descendants of an individual.
For example, Person Pages are not generally created for those who died in childhood.
Please review the individual person pages to see if further offspring are listed there.

If complete branches of this tree are missing, you should first contribute person pages for the missing individuals and then via your Mentor Team talk page ask for this page to be updated.
