James Reese, Sr (a.k.a. James Polk Reese) was an early settler of Maury County. He received a large grant of land there before it was formed as a county.

My 3G grandfather was James M Reese. He was b. @ 1815 in TN. Some say he was b. in Maury Co. He married Letha Easley in Sumner Co. @ mid-1830s. Died in or around time of Civil War.

I think James M may be the grandson of James Sr., possibly through James Sr's son James H(arvey) Reese. This would also make my James M b. in Maury Co.

I was hoping to find a definitive list of children of James Harvey Reese. Some say he is my James M Reese's father. Others say James Harvey had a son James but not until more like 1825. There is a lot of unproven info floating around.

If anyone knows anything at all, please email me! Thanks! Cathy Reese
