I am looking for information on Mattie Reeves who was listed in the 1920 census of Colquitt County, GA. with her son, John L. Reeves. Mattie was 65 and John was 25. Mattie was the daughter of a Samuel Byers, mother unknown. She married Wiley B. Reeves in Marion Co., GA. 12/25/1879. They were in Houston County, Texas on the 1910 census. There were three children in the household; Ouida, Tom and John L. Reeves. Ouida died in 1918 and is buried in the Salem Cemetery near Lovelady, Texas. She also has a child, Raymond Taylor, buried adjacent to her. Wiley B. Reeves also died in Houston County and is buried in the Salem Cemetery. His grave has remained unmarked for many years and was recently marked by our Reeves kin. We raised the funds at our Reeves reunion and marked the grave.
After Wiley and Ouida died, Mattie took her boys, Tom and John and went back to Georgia and settled in Colquitt Co. I have no further information on her but have recently found a John L. Reeves who died in Nassau Co., Florida 11/18/1971.
Wiley B. Reeves was a brother to my grandfather, Ed Reeves, also buried in Houston County, Texas.
Does anyone have information on Mattie, John or Tom Reeves that they would share with me.
The 1910 census of Houston County, Texas also states that Wiley and Mattie had seven children and five of those seven were still surviving in 1910.
