The 1800 census is the earliest for Buncombe County. The first Reeves to appear was James Reeves (b. < 1765)on the 1810 census.

On the 1820 census, a Malachi Reeves (b. 1775-1794) appears, living next to James. He is thought to be James' son. Later census and other sources indicate that Malachi was born about 1790-1792.

Perhaps the Malachi you are looking for was a brother of James Reeves who either died or moved before being enumerated in the 1800 or 1810 census.
Be happy to share the information I have on the Reeves of Buncombe & Haywood Counties.
