The Reeves Review states that Jordan Reeves, born 1747 to George Reeves and Mary Jordan, died in 1797 in South Carolina. This is incorrect. Although Jordan Reeves Sr lived in Pendleton, South Carolina for a few years, he moved to Tennessee about 1797. There are numerous records of Jordan Reeves Sr (b 1747) in Davidson County TN starting in 1797 and later in Humphreys County TN where the last record of him is found in 1822. The Reeves Review also contains incorrect information about the children of Jordan Reeves Sr. It looks like the children's information was lifted from Reliques of the Rives where it is also incorrect. See the entry for Jordan Reeves Sr on this wiki and in this Rootsweb Tree for details about Jordan Reeves Sr and his children.

At least two descendants of Jordan Reeves Sr have tested as members of Group 8 in the
Reeves DNA Project.

And finally, The Reeves Review indicates that Jordan descends from George/Thomas/George/William/Timothy. This is also incorrect. There is no evidence of descent from William son of Timothy b 1588. Reeves DNA Group 8 researchers now believe that all members of their group descend from Timothy Rives, b 1625, son of Timothy b 1588.

See DNA Group 8 on this wiki for the lines of the eight DNA group 8 participants, including the two who descend from Jordan Reeves Sr.

See also this Rootsweb Tree for more information on the descendents of the Ryves of Oxfordshire.
