I believe all I had was abstracts from that will but yes I know it did mention "some" of the children. I saw the will in Jackson NC, county seat for Northampton Co. You can probably contact the clerk's office there and get a copy. William Reavis, I know was married twice with children by both wives. According to some "internet" information I found somewhere, he and first wife Jamry Jordan had sons David, James and Zachariah. Children by second wife Mary Jordan were Samuel Reavis who married Nancy Goodin, Leah Reavis who married Lewis (Luke) Huskey, Isaac Reavis who married Hannah Wallace, Elizabeth Reavis who married Avery Parham and William Reavis who married ___ Turner??. As I said, can't vouch for the validity of this, as it is old internet posting. I think there were also several other Reavis families living in Northampton NC close to the Brunswick Va line during the late 1700s. If I find specific language from that will, I will post. Hope that helps.
