I posted a while ago on my Reese family from Ontario and Ohio - I was just able to link them up with Lewis (b 1789 Saltlick, Fayette, PA) and Catherine Reese (b 1797, likely maiden name Fisher).  Lewis may be the brother of Hambright Doran Reese. Any connections out there?

Abraham Reese (Reece) was my 5X great grandfather. He lived in the area of Deep Creek in North Carolina. His daughter Mary married David Walker. Their son John Thornton Walker moved from NC to Indiana, where his daughter, Martha Jane Walker met and married George Washington Dean.  They moved to Morristown, Minnesota.  Their daughter Martha "Mattie" Dean married a recent Norwegian immigrant by the name of Louis (Ludvik) Larson.  Their son William Oliver Larson was my much-loved maternal grandfather.

I am from the Reece family from Indiana. I believe they came from North Carolina on the way to Iowa, some of the family moved to Indiana. Around Hancock County. They were Quakers. My direct Reece is my Grandmother Margaret G. Reece. Her father was Elwood. Her grandfather was Elanka Reece. Before that was Jesse, Eli, Solomon, Abraham Reese.

I have 2 Reece/Reese women in my tree believed to be sisters who married Lemmons brothers.  They were married in 1830's in Rhea County TN.

Amy Reece b1810 married William Lemmons b1798

Sarah Reece b1815 married John Lemmons b1802

I am trying to find out who their parents were and how they might have connected to other TN Reece families.

In the Rhea tax records there are listed the following men:

1825 Roger Reece, Henry Reece

1833 Roger Reece, Jesse Reese, Jesse Reese Jr, William Reese

Does anyone have info about the Reece/Reese family in Rhea county TN??

Yes, I have the same problem. There are some word of mouth, stories and 1 marriage certificate for Solomon Reece and a book segment, about the marriage of Sarah Boone and Solomon Reece.

Hi all,

I just started looking into my family tree.  I was surprised how far back I could get before I hit a wall.  It seems my 3G grandfather was Abraham Reece from North Carolina.  There seems to be a lot of mystery as to who his parents were and thus that's as far back as I can go.  If anyone has any information that would help I'd love to hear it.

Hi everyone! I found this page while researching my Reese family. My great-grandfather was John Earnest Reese, son of Thomas and Jennie Reese, born in 1914. He was adopted by Willie Wellons Ferrell and Alsie Florence Kinton from Mecklenburg, VA. My grandmother has been trying to find her fathers biological family for years now. John received a letter from a man named Charles claiming to be his brother but that letter has long been lost. None of John's adoptive brothers and sisters have any information other than his adoption papers. If anyone has any information, I'd love to make my grandmothers dreams come true. Johns adopted mother, Alsie Kinton had an aunt Mary Ann Kinton that married a B. F. Reese. According to their marriage certificate found on, his name was Benjamin F. Reese from Petersburg VA born 1857 and married in Lunenburg to Mary Ann Kinton when he was 46. They had no children but I'm guessing he may have been married previously and had children. Mecklenburg (where John was adopted) is the next county over from Lunenburg. I'm thinking John was really Alsie's cousin's child. I'm hoping that I can find a connection. I'm trying to talk my Grandmother's nephew into doing the DNa test but I don't know how successful that will be. Thank you so much in advance.

I just posted to my page, but am not sure how to let everyone see it, a photo album on the Reeseville, Pennsylvania Veteran's Memorial.  Reeseville is in Etna, Shaler Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

Hi.  I am new here and I am interested finding REECE connections.  I have very little to go on and have been hitting brick walls for many years.  My great grandfather was GEORGE W. REECE, born April 1, 1863 or 1864 in Western NC or even possibly East TN.  He died in April 1951 in Morganton, Burke County, NC.   He was married to my great-grandmother CELIA CHURCH and they lived in Wilkes County and Ashe County, NC,  They are both buried near Lenoir, NC in Collettsville.   I have never been able to find George before the 1900 census  (In 1900, they live in Jobs Cabin District of Ashe County).  I have no siblings or parents for George...hoping to find a breakthrough.   I appreciate any info!  Thanks.
