In an 1828 General Sessions case from Greenville County, John Clark alleged that George Reeves and Noah Reeves of Abbeville district and Frances Davenport of Greenville district had threatened him and his wife. He stated that they came to his house and "the sd George Reevs did get an axe and threaten to strike him the deponant and broke down the door of the sd Clarks house and puled? the wife of the deponent about in a very rough manner." And that "Noah Reevs and Francis Devanport did aid and assist the sd George Reevs in a riotous manner contrary to the peace and dignity of the State."

According to the historical marker at Broadmouth Baptist Church in Abbeville, South Carolina, Noah Riddle Reeve was one of the first deacons of the church which was organized in 1837.
