Re: New DNA Match to Two Reeves DNA Donors

In Reply to: Re: New DNA Match to Two Reeves DNA Donors by Beverly Watson of 6379

Beverly....There is a "post thread" on this message board (from back around 2001 or so, as I recall) that mentioned a Renny B. Reeves, a John Nelson Reeves and a George W. Reeves, among others in that Reeves family. This family was apparently in Louisiana and then later in Arkansas. One poster said that the father of Renny was PROBABLY a James Reeves (if I recall correctly) in Louisiana....based simply on a review of the census.

Without going into all of the details here, it seems likely that this was/is PROBABLY the "Reeves connection" to the George Washington Davison whose descendant's "DNA matches" are the descendants of Green B. Reeves (Johnie Lee Reeves) and Ambrose Reeves (Melvin Reeves)....i.e., Reeves DNA "Group 4." Do you have ANY information at all on the above Renny B. Reeves line? Can you see how Renny B. Reeves and the others might "connect" to either Green B. Reeves or Ambrose Reeves?

Note: I understand that there was a Green Reeves who was on the 1830 Lincoln Co., TN (versus KY) census. Do you have any information on that Green Reeves? Thanks.
