Several of the sons of Frederick Reeves who died in York County, South Carolina in 1820, James, Hiram and Samuel, appear to have left South Carolina shortly after the 1830 US Census and migrated to Obion County, Tennessee. By 1840 the same three Reeves' individuals are recorded in Obion County, Tennessee in that census and again in 1850. By the 1850 census Samuel Reeves appears to have died and his wife Jane is listed as the head of household. By the 1870 census, Jane Reeves was living in the home of her son-in-law William P. Brown.
