In March 1841, William Bartlett Eaves is born in either TN or IL. His mother was Nancy Agness Marshall (maiden) Reaves (1st marr) Eaves. At this time I have found no record of his father's name. Nancy Agness Marshall was born in 1800 in TN. She 1st married John L. Reaves in Christian County, KY. They were in Henry County, TN by 1824. John L. Reaves died by June 1835 according to court records. On 3 September 1835 Nancy deeds all her part in the estate to her children. Is this when she married the 2nd time? i have not found her on an 1840 census. By the 1850 census she and son William Bartlett are living in Henry County, TN in the household of her daughter. Who did Nancy marry? Who was William Bartlett Eaves's father?
