Although there are no documents that prove positively that Nancy Reeves was the daughter of Avery Reeves, there is an abundance of records in Franklin County linking Avery to his probable son-in-law William C. Handley. There is even an 1833 bill of sale wherein a slave was sold to Dudley Johnson by both Avery Reeves and William C. Handley who apparently owned the slave jointly.
