I believe that my grandfather, Asa Lorenzo Reaves
originally came from Alabama. He settled in
Livingston, Tx and raised a family. Anyone out
there know anything about him?

I believe your ancestor was one of the many children of Judge John Reaves of Wedowee, Randolph COunty Alabama. He was married four times and had over twenty children.

I have a S.E. Augustus Reaves who is listed on a heirs list for A.S. Reaves Jr. who died in New Mexico. He was a child of Judge John Reaves and Hannah McWhorter. The Judge was married 4 times and had 20 children.

Let me know if this is who you are looking for I have more information I will exchange with you.

Thanks - - -

Hi Carol,

If your Asa Lorenzo Reaves was b. 22 July 1872, his first wife was Lugenia D. Collins and his second wife was Ada Belle St. John. We are distant cousins and you have just hit paydirt!
(Hopefully so have I). If this is your grandfather let me know. Have much info on your ancestors, will trade for info on your family. :-) Your cousin, Lillian Champagne

Yes, it is the same one. Ada Belle was my grandmother. This is so exciting. I really don't have much family history and always wished I knew more. I can, however, give you names of currently living family, and deceased, as far as that goes. Thanks for answering the query, I will hope to hear from you directly via email. This is great, to find out more about where I came from.
