Searching for information on John Reeves and Ella L. Reeves listed on the Franklin County, Florida 1900 Census with one daughter named Allie Mae Reeves.According to this census John was born August 1850 in Georgia.He was 49 years old.Ella L. Reeves was born August 1877 in Georgia.She was 22 years old.Allie May was born February 1896 in Georgia and was 4 years old.John and Ella had been married about 7 years (according to the census). The census also states that John's mother and father were born in Georgia and Ella's mother and father were born in Georgia.John is listed as a fisherman. John's middle initial is either "J" or "I".
The John Reeves I need to find is found in the household of Thomas Jefferson Reeves and Mary Buckner Reeves on the 1860 census of Talbot County, Georgia. He is listed as about 8 years old on that census. His name appears on that census as either John I. or John J. or could be John L. (it is hard to read).In 1870, I find John Reeves in Muscogee Co., GA. working for the railroad.He is listed as 17 years old, born in GA.In 1880, I find John Reeves in Davidson Co., TN. listed as 27 years old, working as a railroad hand. The census states he was born in GA., his mother and father born in GA.He is still single.
I'm not sure the John Reeves on the 1900 census in Franklin Co., Florida is the same John Reeves found in Talbot Co., Georgia in 1860 but it sure looks as if it could be the same one.If someone has information on this John Reeves I would be so appreciative if you would get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
