Published in the Southern Aegis, St. Clair County, Alabama -
August 7, 1890. Louisa Reeves was born September 12, 1799; was married at the age of 14 years; had 17 children, 8 girls and 9 boys. Came into the county in 1818. Her husband Anderson Reeves died April the 21st 1852.

In the Reeves Grove Cemetery in St. Clair County, Alabama, among the graves of many of the above listed family members is the following curious grave:
Elizabeth McCorgle Reeves August, 1840 aged about 74 years. Could this be the mother of Anderson Reeves? Or it is his wife and the gravestone transcription is incorrect? Eliza Louisa Reeves' death record gives a date of death of 27 Jan 1892 and also states that her year of birth was 1800 so it is doubtful that this could be her grave.

Also of note is the presence in St. Clair County, Alabama of the family of Reuben Sanders with wife Mary (born 1809) who in 1860 named a child Reeves Sanders. Both Reuben and Mary were born in South Carolina and may have a family connection to Anderson Reeves.
