Deeds recorded in 1841 and 1842 from Jesse Reeves to his sons Harris and Jesse Tilman Reeves for "love and affection" document their family connection to him.

In both the 1850 and 1860 census, Harris Reeves' wife is named as Any or Amy but six years later in his 1866 will he refers to her as Elizabeth. Presumably Annie was simply a nickname and Elizabeth was not a second wife.
