  6. William Reeve

Notes concerning the monument inscription say he son of Thomas & Mary, aged 37 with children: Eliza, Thomas, Mary Ann, George and William. This must be an error as the age matches Thomas son of Ambrose and Mary. Children fit well with the list given in the will of Lewis Reeve: Thomas, George, William, and Mary, and the fact that Thomas was already deceased at the time of Lewis's will.

Parish records note an Eliza Reeve, aged 21 years was buried 21 Oct 1818. Monument Inscription notes she was the daughter of Thomas Reeve. She is probably this Thomas's daughter.
