On 21 August 1852, an Anna Reeves, possibly this one, gave testimony in support of William Clanton's claim to a Revolutionary War Pension, saying her father and Mr. Clanton were neighbors in Kershaw District and they they were acquainted for her earliest recollection. It stated she was 76 years old at the time, which fits with this Anna Reeves.

(Note that another almost identical entry for Anna appears nine lines underneath the first, this one indicating that she died of typhoid fever.)
