The recorded inventory of Josias Reeves estate names Cassandra Reeves and Greenbery B. Barton as the next of kin. The identities of both are unknown.
In a 1727 deed executed by William Reaves for 100 acres in Baltimore County, a Luke Raven signed as witness. This may indicate a close association and points to William Reaves possibly being Josias's father.
