By the 1885 Nebraska Census, Cameron is recorded with a wife named Elizabeth but she is approximately 20 years younger than his previous wife and the mother of his children. It may have been a mistake made by the census enumerator but it is definitely Cameron Reeves, son of George Reeves and Elizabeth Doughton.
Elizabeth Evans Reeves lived until after 1900 and is listed in the Omaha, Nebraska city directory of 1895 as the widow of J. C. Reeves. In the 1900 census of Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska, the widowed Elizabeth Reeves is living in the home of her daughter Josephine Williams who is also widowed.
