George Reeves is my great granfather, my grandfather was William Omer Reeves, died February 3, 1974 (George and Sarah's son) and my father was Glenn Edward Reeves died April 30, 2016. I see there are others posting on here as his great grandchildren. I don't know much about my dad's side of the family. If you would like to share family info, please send me an email [email protected] or a PM on Facebook Pamela Reeves Ricks. I would love to know more about each of you.
