The 1870 US Census shows that Adaline and her children had returned to Cobb County GA. Leroy is not listed, and presumably had died. He may have died in Alabama.
Malachi Reeves, there is a substantial amount of data that indicates a connection to that family and encourage a belief that LeRoy was a son of Malachi.
DNA of a descendant of Leroy Reeves matches that of DNA Group 3 which includes descendants of John Reeves and his wife Sarah as well as numerous other descendants of the Reeves family of Granville County, North Carolina.
