Reflections for Deputy Sheriff William Harrison Reams

Wow! The internet is great. I found another hero in my family, I knew nothing about! I am writing my family history and came to William's name and had no information beyond his name and birth and now to find a hero, can't wait to tell the family. I wish I could contact these members . Son of a Maternal Reames, Milo Bowers @ Face Book.

My 3rd Great Grandpa, I am proud of you. Your wife Martha Jane Settle, raised all your children well, and never fully recovered from you leaving her so soon.

William is my 5 times great grandfather. I am a genealogy/local history librarian and just discovered my relation to him. I am so proud to come from such a long line of law enforcement officers.

William Harrison Reams; Elizabeth Reams Nance is a 2g grand daughter of William. We are so proud and grateful to have an ancestor who was such a dedicated law man. Many of us as former servicemen know what it is like to have one's life on the line a few years, but these officers of the law have their lives on the line for an entire career!
William was one of those who gave his life in service to his community and country. We cherish and honor his memory
