Inv. of Wm. A HOLTON, Feb. 17, 1820. (Had slave girl LUCRETIA.) App:
Jesse PEPPER, Alex NOWERS, Wm. HOLTON, Benj. REEVES.
Benjamin Reeves, one of the appraisers of William A. Holton's estate in 1820 was from a different Reeves' family and was the husband of James Reeves' daughter Nancy.
There are no clues to any children of Sarah Reeves and William Holton as the probate records are limited to the inventory of William Holton's estate only. The records do not even contain a listing of the associated Estate Sale.
There were several unidentified daughters listed in Isaac Reeves, Sr.'s household in the 1790 census of Wilkes County. This Sarah Reeves who married William Holton appears to be James' sister, one of the previously unidentified daughters of Isaac Reeves, Sr. However, this William Holton is undoubtably not a son of Alexander Holton or brother of Sarah Holton Reeves, wife of James. Basic research of Holton families who settled in Mason County do not record this William who died in 1820 in the probate records of the families of Alexander or William Holton who died in 1810 and 1830, respectively.
