William Thomas Reaves could not be Rebecca Jennette father and James Thomas father also. That would make them brother
and sister. This is what I started last night be for the weather got bad.

George Reaves Owned a Plantation and slaves. He hired Jimmie James T. Reaves to take care of thiswhen he went to fight in the Civil War. J.James was a young lad and a distant cousin. He fell in love with and married Jinnie Rebecca ,daughter of George Reaves.

George Reaves had 6 girls and 2 boys, one of which died young.
The other was named Nick and died a few years ago. That was all that was on the paper.

Just a note that might interests you.

I am from Allen Parish, Louisiana. My Hamilton family line landed in Monroe County and migrated after the Civil war to Allen Parish, Louisiana for logging.

In the same area in Lousiana, there is a small community called Reaves and it is located with in 10 miles or less of where my family moved.

I have confirmed that several Monroe County Families moved together to this location. Perhaps tracing the Reaves line would also lead you there as well.
