As Brittney has found out you have to check all spellings. Back in the day some census takers didn't know how to spell. For that matter some of the people didn't know how to spell either!

Welcome Donna! Maybe you & Greg are related. It's possible since you both have AL. "roots". Good Luck!
Reaves from Bessemer, AL? That is news to me. I have GATES from that area of AL as well as Birmingham, AL.
The Reaves I have in my family tree are REEVES, not REAVES. I guess I should add that spelling to my REEVES listings.
Hi I've just started researching my fathers family. They are Reaves and come from Bessemer, AL.
The earliest Reeves I have is a George Reaves (1748-1829). The Reaves and Reeves are mixed so much throughout the tree because of Census variations.
Welcome to the group! Can you tell us your early Reeves first names?
Pam Drake in IN.
Hi all! I married into the Reeves family. Most of the Reeves I have traced so far have been from Halifax, VA area since the mid 1700's. I have seen the last name as Reeves and Reaves.
