While you are researching the Ohio Reeves, will you please keep a look out
for my B.F. Reeves (Reave) (Reaves). Born about 1817 in Ohio (?)
He married Nancy Mann, born in Canada about 1820, in Knox County, Ohio.
I have their marriage record, but no details and have not been able to find
his ancestors.

I was the one that proposed the theory that this John Reeves, native of PA
(abt 1780-bef 1850) may be the husband of Mary (Dill) who died somewhere in
the Lafayette, IN area abt 1840.

There is a John Reeves on the tax list of 1801 in Sunfish twp, Ross (now
Pike Co), OH which may be this family. Census records for 1820 list a John
Reeves. Later census records list several John Reeves in Ross, Pike, and
Fairfield Counties. At some time in the late 1830's he migrated to Fountain

Co, then possibly Indepenence, Warren Co, then finally Westpoint, Tippecanoe

Co, IN area.

I suspect that John is somehow related to the prominent Nathan/Nathaniel
Reeves who married Anne Doddridge and who lived on Zane's Trace (forever
recorded by Cumrine in 1806). There is an historical (Nathaniel)
Reeves'Crossing (on Paint Creek) now Rt 50 between Bainbridge and
Bourneville below Chillicothe, OH. There is also the Seip Dill Indian
(burial) Mound there and the town of Dils/Dill, OH.

I am researching all Reeves in Southern Ohio in the 1750's to the 1830's to
see which families emigrated from the Eastern seaboard states. I am now
working on the theory that John Reeves declared himself a Virginian (in
today's Wash Co, PA) since Gov Dinwiddie was selling the same PA land at a
cheaper price and many families appear in this area: Dill, Doddridge,
Reeves, Teeter, Wells,
