About Our Family Research


This board starts with my great grandfather and goes back to 1695 with Edward and goes to present day, My grandfather was James Belton Reavis whom married Fannie Goodrum My family settled in Georgia and George T lived in Grassy Cove Tenn and worked as an Attorney who traveled a circuit from Tenn to Ga to Ala To Texas, His children were born in all four states, James Belton Married Fannie Goodrum in Fort Worth Texas, He worked on cattle farms in the early 1900s, I have a picture of him on his horse in Okema Oklahoma in 1910, Rumors in the Family say that he was given the choice of leaving the territory freely or taking the consequencies, My dad Leon H Reavis says he believed that His dad had gotten into a gang and was robbing trains,,All that can be said is that when he came back to Ga, He never returned to Texas or Oklahoma, He became a devoted christian and lived one of the most christian lifestyles that I have ever witnessed, He died while sitting in his favorite chair while asleep, I believe he was at piece with the world,, If their is anything that anyone can add to this families colorfull history or if their is anything that I can help with join in,,, Yours truly Thomas H Reavis
