Both Dudley and Allen Reavis had accounts the records of the Clingman Store in Surry County. They are recorded in the earliest extant account book which covers 1818 to 1821. "Allin" Reavis and Charles Steelman paid on Dudley's account, indicating there may have been some relationship. It is also likely that Allen and Dudley Reavis were brothers since they were close in age (based upon the 1820 census) and Allen named one of his sons Dudley. There is also a Jesse Reavis living in the same district of Surry County in 1820 of the same approximate age who could be another brother.
