- Thomas Courtney Reeves, b. 1753, Charles County, Maryland
Thomas Courtney Reeves is referred to in the will of Elizabeth Askin as her nephew and in his 1818 will he also makes a reference to his aunt Elizabeth Askin.
The Askin family was obviously connected in some way to Hezekiah's family, i.e. above deed from Courtney Askin, a legatee referred to as a nephew in the will of Elizabeth Askin's sister Rebecca Askin, the families lived in the same neighborhood and the name "Courtney" appears to be common to the Askin family although not used in other Reeves' families.
The will of George Askin, father of Elizabeth and Rebecca mentioned above, makes no bequests to a married daughter named Reeves but neither did it name Vincent Askin who is confirmed as George's son.
