Birth: c1852, Tennessee

Children of Andrew Jackson Reaves and Martha Jane Williams:
  1. Mary Francis Reaves, b. 6 Sep 1880
  2. Ella Elizabeth Reaves, b. 28 May 1882
  3. Joseph A Reaves, b. Mar 1884
  4. James Henry (Johnny?) Reaves, b. 1 Oct 1885
  5. Earl A. Reaves, b. Mar 1891
  6. Nella/Stella? Reaves, b. Mar 1894
  7. Casbie Ancell Reaves, b. 18 Feb 1896

All the censuses state Andrew was born in Tennessee except the 1880 which states Missouri. This is probably in error as he was living in Missouri at the time.

Although his headstone states he died 2 Jul 1857, it appears the stone was probably placed a while after his death. The census indicates he was born c1852.

Research Notes

Find a Grave lists 3 unnamed children (probably infants) buried in Hall Cemetery in Natural Dam, Arkansas who may belong to Andrew J. and Martha. Known for sure as siblings of Casbie from Casbie's grandson: Earl, Joseph, Johnny, and knows he had several sisters but cannot remember their names.
