Shared note

The full name of Frances Ann Sims was in the information from Dora. She says it came from Sherry McLemore. Need more concluding information. 1850: F. H. Reeves 1860: Frances (H. or A.) Reeves 1870: Franky Reaves 1880: Frankey H. Reeves

Sherry McLemore said she had died in 1885.

In a message from P. T. Hammond of the Court of Ordinary printed March 5, 1864, "Frankey H. Reeves and husband James B. Reeves" are summoned to appear before Hammond to prove or disprove the will of Joseph Ervin Sims.

A Hawkins Reaves was listed next to James Jr. in the Fork Hill revival baptism record of 1839. Also listed in Fork Hill members list with (dead) written next to the name. On J. C.'s Death Certificate, it looks like the mother's name is Hawkins Reeves.
