In 1832, "Hannah Reeve widow and Relict of Gabriel Reeve deceased, and Volney Reeve and Tracy Reeve heirs of said deceased" sold land to David Crickton that had belonged to Gabriel Reeve. Theresa Reeve also signed the deed and Francis A Reeve witnessed. In a deed from 1835, Hannah Reeve of the County of Putnam in Illinois sold some land to James Powers. Bureau County was founded from Putnam and we find Hannah living there with her son Tracy Reeve in 1850.
