In 1836, M. H. Ford of Cherokee County, Georgia sold some land in that county to William "Reeves" of Hall County (C, p21). Later that year, William "Rieves," now of Benton County, Alabama, sold this same land to Nathaniel Harbin (C, p33). Cherokee County, Alabama was right above Benton County and it appears he ended up in Cherokee County, Alabama. He appears on the census there in 1860.
