Thomas Reeves was a minor when his father John Rives died in 1799. Guardianship documents for Thomas and all of his siblings are included in John Rives Northampton County estate file.

His will written in November of 1816 names his sister Winnefred Blow as his primary beneficiary, then at Winnefred's death his entire estate was to pass to Winnefred's daughter Sarah Blow. The will does not mention a wife or any children of Thomas' so it can be assumed that he never married and left no children.
