Family of William Reeves

Family of William Reeves of Chowan, Edgecombe and Granville Co., NC

Image William Reeves was first mentioned in February 1718 as an adjoining landowner in a deed in Chowan District, North Carolina (location 9 on the adjacent map).

He is recorded in numerous transactions of Edgecombe County until 1749 when he received a grant from Lord Granville for 200 acres in Granville County on both sides of Fishing Creek. It was in Granville County that his will was written and proved in December of 1751 after his death.

His children remained in that vicinity of North Carolina for some years but by around 1800 most had migrated elsewhere, many to Georgia and South Carolina.

Descendants of this family who have tested with FtDNA are found in DNA Group 3.
