David was living in "Lower Alloways Creek in the County of Salem and State of New Jersey" in 1786 when he sold some land he had inherited from his father David Reeve. The deed also mentions his grandfather David Reeve. At the time of this deed, he was married to Rachel.

In a later deed from 1799, he and his wife Ann, living in Stoe Creek, Cumberland County, sold more land which he had inherited from his father David Reeve.

He wrote his will in 1798 while living in Alloways Creek in Salem County but it was proved on 30 June 1802 in Cumberland County. It names wife Ann and children: Isaac, Daniel, Timothy, William, David and Mary.

The court ordered "division of said real estate Between Timothy Reeves, William Reeves, Mary Reeves, Ann Reves, Dayton Reeves, and Ann Russell, late Ann Reeves assignee of Isaac Reeves and Daniel Reeves, according to said Will.." Not all of these appear to be children.

Research Notes

An 1824 deed from Joseph and Ann Russell (late Ann Reeves) shows they were living in Lebanon, Madison County, Ohio near where the son David Reeve was. It's unclear if this was the remarried widow or someone else. Ann was an assignee of Isaac and Daniel Reeves in the division of land.
