In an 1841 entry in the Bedford County Deed books, Archibald states that his father was Archibald Reeves Senr., decd, and that he gave his right to the estate to Tarleton J. Reeves.
Archibald was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 36th Alabama Regiment on 30 Aug 1846.
In 1853, Archibald purchased a grant of almost 40 acres in Cahaba, Alabama.
Archibald made his will in 1855 and it was probated in 1856 in Wilcox County, Alabama. It only mentions his wife Sarah Ann.
He appears to be buried in Allenton Cemetery in Wilcox County, but the headstone photos are not readable.
