I just recently checked my e-mail & found your follow-up. I appreciate your response.
I will tell you that my great-great-grandparents' graves have taught me not to trust completely the information on grave markers. Both the birth dates on theirs are incorrect. Their oldest son William Leander "Buddy" Reeves (my great-grandfather), who is also buried at Holly Springs, was born 4 Oct 1875. I also have confirmation from the 1880 census that William & Nancy Reeves were already married at that time & had children including Buddy. In addition, my great-grandmother Hattie Roxieana (Chapman) Reeves, Buddy's wife, lived to be 102 (she died 4 Jul 1985). I spent many wonderful hours with her discussing family history.
Thanks again for the follow-up.
