Although there are no probate documents that provide definite documentation of Spencer and Susannah Reeves' children, George Reeves is listed in numerous documents pertaining to Spencer's estate. In the sale bill of "exempted property" dated 5 Jul 1824, he is listed along with other presumed children Thomas, Noah, and Elijah. (Fleming County Will Records Vol C p. 164)

In the primary estate sale for Spencer Reeves these same individuals were buyers along with Paul Reeves and Samuel Ishmael, believed to be a son-in-law of Spencer's. (Fleming County Will Records Vol C p. 100-102)

An administrator's settlement of the account of the heirs of Noah Reeves' in August of 1848, names George Reeves as the guardian of Isaac, Mahala, Polly Ann, Noah, Jane, John, Parthena and Lucinda Reeves Henderson. (Fleming County Will Records Vol H p. 454-455)

Based upon these records, it is apparent that George was part of this family.
