I am trying to find out about my Reese/ Rees family.
My grandfather is listed under several names. on the Smithson website he is listed as Fate Lafeat, on my oldest aunts birth certificate he is Fayette and on my mom and younger aunts birth certificate he is listed as Fate. So i just listed him as Fate
Fate Reese - dob 29 Aug 1894 - Corinth or Center Point, AR - married to Erma Kathryn Hogg - dod 27 Apr 1941 - Big Spring, TX
Great Grandfather is
Leonidus Lever (Lee) Reese - dob 27 jun 1864 - AR - married Mary Francis (Fanny Smithson) - dod 24 Dec 1907 - Paris, Lamar Co, TX - buried in Corinth, Yell Co, AR
Great Great Grandfather is
Dr. William Watt (Wiley) Reese - dob 9 Oct 1823/26 - Liberty, Bedford Co, VA - married Nancy T Calhoun - dod 7 Apr 1902 - Howard or Yell co, AR - buried Old Corinth Cemetary, Howard Co, AR His 2nd marriage was to Mary Ellen Sutton (Morton)
My 3X's Great Grandfather is
James Robert (Joel) Rees - dob 12 May 1800 - Liberty, Bedford Co, VA - married Annie (Anna) Jones - dod 12 Sep 1888 - Howard Co, AR - buried Old Corinth Cemetary, Howard Co, AR
My 4X's Great Grandfather is
Berry Rees (or William Littleberry Rees) - dob about 1760/61 - Bedford Co, VA - Married Sarah/Sally Hon/Gibbs/Hopkins depending what web site you look at - dod before 1820 - TN
My 5X's Great Grandfather is (and this is where it gets confusing he has 2 wives and it shows all the kids belong to both of them)
Isham Rees - dob 8 Aug 1732 - Bristol Parish, Dinwiddie Co, VA - dod 1 Jul 1816 - Round Oak, Jones Co, GA His 2 wives were Rhoda Thomas and Susan Coleman. But on 1 website it shows Susan Coleman as his father Hugh's wife.
And no one to talk to as most of the family that I know is dead.
I cannot breathe life into you I can only be.
