Based on age at death, the Samuel who died in 1791 is a match with the son of Cockrill Reeves. His will names "John Albree Samuel Albree Joseph Albree Elizabeth Albree and Elizabeth Warren...the five aforesaid Grandchildren." It also names "my Grandson in Law, Isaac Warran Junr."

This appears to be the Samuel Reeves who was fined 40 pounds for cursing about the Governor coming to visit. He was made to stand upon a public stool with a sign that read "For vile factious mutinous and insolent words against His Excellency the Governour and the Honorable Francis Nicholson Esqr."
