 Lucretia Reeves Information

Family Treasuresglohmann writes "Lucretia Reeves married Colby J. Cook in 1844 in Pike County, Georgia. Colby is also spelled Coleby. He was born in 1823 and died 11 Dec 1861 at Camp Pickens in Virginia during the Civil War. Colby J. Cook is the son of Allen Cook (10 Apr 1801, Elbert Co., GA - 15 Nov 1885 Chambers Co., AL) and Susannah "Susan" Jackson (14 Feb 1815 NC or SC - 05 Oct 1883 Randolph Co., AL).
Children of Colby J. Cook and Lucretia Reeves:
1. Susana "Susan" R. (Randle) Cook, b: 1846 Pike Co., GA; m. C.J. Mulligan 1880, Pike Co., GA.
2. Thomas J. Cook, b: 1848 Pike Co., GA.
3. James R. Cook, b: 1850 Pike Co., GA; m. Caldonia A. Huggins 1874 Pike Co., GA.
4. John F. Cook, b: 1852 Pike Co., GA.
5. Sarah T. Cook, b: 1854 Pike Co., GA; m. J.R. Manly 1880 Pike Co., GA.
6. Charles M. Cook, b: 1859 Pike Co., GA.
7. Martha J. Cook, b: 1861

On the 1870 US Federal Census, Pike County, GA:
Lucretia Cook is head of the household, age 45. Living with her are children:
Susana age 24
John F. age 19
Sarah age 15
Charles M. age 12
Martha T. age 9

Colby J. Cook was a 2nd Corporal in the 27th Georgia Infantry Regiment Co. G. He died of pneumonia at Camp Pickens in Virginia on 11 Dec 1861.

Living near Lucretia Reeves in Pike County, GA in 1870 are Perlina/Paulina Reeves, age 58, born in GA. Living with Perlina Reeves are children:
Roda Reeves age 23
Jefferson Reeves age 21
Marion Reeves age 16

Also in Pike Co., GA nearby is Susan Reeves age 28, living with Lucy Beckham age 30 and Joseph Beckham, age 2.
In the household of William Franklin, age 74, born in NC, is Sarah W. age 65, born in GA. {My note here: Sarah W. must have been a Reeves, since I had written her information with the other Reeves living in Pike Co., GA at that time.}

Martha Reeves age 60, born in GA is also living near the other Reeves. Next door to her is Martha C. Reeves age 25, Sarah E. age 23, and Elijah age 20.

Allen Cook and Susannah Jackson are my ggg.grandparents. My gg.grandmother is Susannah "Susan" Randle Cook, one of their daughters. She is a sister to Colby J. Cook who married Lucretia Reeves. Lucretia Reeves' last name has also been recorded as Reaves on some records.
My ancestor, Susannah "Susan" Randle Cook married Francis Marion Howe, son of Hiram Howe of Pike Co., GA. Lucretia Reeves Cook named a daughter after my Susannah Randle Cook.

Allen Cook migrated to Randolph Co., AL from Pike Co., GA. and died probably in Chambers Co., AL, where he and his 2nd wife, Rachel Gray were living at the time of his death on 15 Nov 1885. After the death of Susannah "Susan" Jackson, Allen m. Rachel Gray. They are buried in Chambers Co., AL at Bethel Baptist Church Cemetery.
A large group of connected families, including the Brown, Cook, Howe (and most likely some Reeves) families, moved circa 1860 and 1870 to Randolph Co., AL. Later, some of them moved to Chambers Co., AL.

It has taken me some time to locate the family of Lucretia Reeves. I was looking for them under the sp. of Reaves. It was only after I began searching under Reeves that I was able to locate them in Pike County, GA. I have just begun looking into the William Reeves and Hannah Smith family line. A few of the Reeves children were born in Pike Co., GA.
William Reeves Jr. and Perlina/Paulina Harrall were living in Pike Co., GA by 1850, and appeared on the Census in Pike Co. that year, with their children. Before moving to Pike Co., they lived in Monroe Co., GA and Harralson Co., GA. William Reeves, Jr. must have died at some point prior to the 1870 US Federal Census, since Perlina was listed as head of h.h. on that census in Pike Co., GA."

 John F. Rives, Sr (1821 - ?) of Searcy, Arkansas

Family TreasuresI recently purchased several old photographs on Ebay, because the auction said that some of the pictures were of a man named Rives. I just received them today and found two photos of a man with a long beard. The back of each photo has a hand written note that identifies him as John F. Rives of Searcy, Arkansas. No date appears anywhere on the photos. However, from the type of photo and their appearance, I would guess they were from around the 1870's to the 1890's. The two photos were apparently taken several years apart as the man appears somewhat older in one than he does in the other.

I did a little research on Ancestry.com is see if I could find out a little more about this man. I think I hit the jackpot. I found a man named John F. Rives, Sr. in the 1880 census for Searcy, White County, Arkansas. He is listed as being born in October 1821 in Virginia and his occupation was a School Teacher.

I have uploaded the two photos into the Old Photos category of the Photo Albums section of the site. If this man is in your line or anyone can tell me anymore about him, please let me know.

 Recipe from old Dorset

Family Treasuresjudy writes "I am new at this and not sure where this should be posted. It isn't very "newsey" but more in the fun category. If any of you out there have a Reeves Reunion then this might be just the thing to serve.

Found this on the Eng-Dorset-Life List and thought it might be fun to try an authentic old Dorset recipe.

Please don't ask me what caster sugar is or what kind of fruit peels these are for I don't have a clue. The two-and-a-half hour cooking time also seems quite long and I'd check it before then. -Judy Gautier

I quote:

Here is a recipe that I have found, for all those with ancestors who were in
the Blackmore Vale (any of the areas including and inbetween the towns of
Shaftesbury, Gillingham, Blandford, Sturminster Newton and Sherborne in
Dorset and also parts of Somerset such as Henstridge and Milborne Port)


Quarter pound butter
Quarter pound caster sugar
Half a cup of warm milk
2 teaspoons Golden Syrup
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3 cups flour
Threequarters pound seedless raisins
3 ounces mixed chopped candied peel.

Cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Warm the milk to
blood heat and add the syrup and bicarbonate of soda and let them dissolve.
Add the flour gradually to the creamed butter, moistening with the milk
mixture and beating well after each addition. Mix in the raisins and peel.
Put into a lined and greased tin (about 6 inches in diameter) and bake in
the bottom of the oven (350 deg F) for two-and-a-half hours."
