new to the forum
I am William James Reeve, currently living in Monument Colorado. I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas in December 1957.
My branch of the family landed in St. Louis around 1870.
The story handed down (not sure if it is true) is that my Great, Great grandfather was involved in a plot to kill The English Queen (Victoria I think). Anyway, the plot was uncovered & my Great Great Grandfather managed to grab the wife & kids and hop a ship to the US before being nabbed.
My Great Grandfather was an accountant in St. Louis, William Joseph Reeve. He passed in 1889 at age 39.
The family, my great grandmother Anne and my grandfather William Joseph Reeve Jr., My great Aunt Marie, & My Great Uncle Tom Reeve moved to Dallas Texas shortly after my Great grandfathers death.
Sound familliar to anyone? Would love to hear from any of you.
