Re: Reeves of Mason County, Kentucky
There is mention of an Elijah Reeves coming to this area with DeWitts and Downings about 1783. They apparently left the Ohio River at Limestone, which is currently Maysville. Since this area was Kentucky Co. of Va in 1777, then Fayette Co. VA in 1780,Bourbon Co. VA in 1785, Mason Co. VA in 1788 and then Mason Co. KY in 1792 when Kentucky became a state your search will probably be difficult. I'm looking for Elijah and hoping to find one of his children married an Elisha DeWitt about 1780. The DeWitts seem to have moved on to central KY but Elijah Reeves probably stayed on in this area with some of his family.
