Hi,
Noticed your posts and was wondering in your research if you have come across another GEORGE WASHINGTON REEVES who lived on BEAVER CREEK, Dale or Coffee Co., ALABAMA. I don't know if he was born there but lived there with his wife, SARAH ANN SMITH. I know his parents were HENRY and ROXY ANN REEVES. (family Bible entries). When they moved to Texas, there was some sort of falling out among brothers (so the story goes) and his family changed the spelling of their name to REAVES. Another story just says they moved into an area where there were other REEVES, and changed the spelling to differenciate between families. They lived in Goliad, Milam and Montgomery Counties in Texas. Thanks, Lillian
