Death Source: Mother's will



Caleb was a witness to the will of John Cullyer of Manington, Salem County in 1728 and helped inventory the estate that same year.

Caleb was a son of Walter Reeve and his second wife Ann according to the estate account for Walter and Ann's will.

In his will, his brother Walter gave some land to his sons which Caleb had purchased in Salem County and Township of Marrington. This land was then deeded by Walter's son Jonathan in 1756 to Micajah Reeve and describes the land as that which "Walter Reeve became also lawfully seized of as being Eldest Brother & right heir at law to his brother the above named Caleb Reeve."

It's likely Caleb was already deceased by the time his brother Walter wrote his will in 1753.
