Birth Source: Age estimated per 1840 census
Franklin County, Tennessee with a household consisting of 1 Male 0-5, 1 Male 30-39, 2 Females 0-5 and 1 Female 20-29. In that census the next household is that of James Dickey, husband of Sarah Virginia Reeves Dickey believed to be another of Avery's children.
It is likely that Jonathan is the male child 20-29 years old living in the household of Avery Reeves in the 1830 census of Franklin County.
Extensive research has failed to locate Jonathan Reeves by the time the 1850 census was taken.
