In the 1830 census of Washington County AR, John Reeves is recorded only three households from Simeon Moore, father of Arvazine Moore, future wife of Ambrose Reeves. This gives more credence to the theory that Ambrose may be the currently unidentified son, born c1822, of John Reeves.
Y-DNA results of a descendant of Ambrose's son William Carroll Reeves are a 36 of 37 marker match to two descendants of Green B. Reeves who died in Dripping Springs, Hays County, Texas in 1884. Green B. Reeves descends from William Reeves and Susan Hunter who migrated from the Greenville/Spartanburg counties area of South Carolina to Christian County, Kentucky around 1800. This DNA match may indicate that Ambrose Reeves was also descended from that extended family as well as being related to other matching participants of DNA Group 4.
It is also noteworthy that the given name Ambrose was used for several documented children in the family of William Reeves and Susan Hunter.
