Willard Haugen 12 Jan 2012

      My name is Willard Haugen, I live in Syracuse,
Utah. I am researching Noble Willis Reeves, a distant
relative on my son-in-law's side of the Reeves family.
     In the process of this research, I have come in
contact with Joan Detlofsen and she has given me his father
and his mother’s names (John Reeves and Susan Harmon).  

     Here is what else I know about him: he was born
about 1829 in Fleming County, Kentucky. He lived in Brown
County, Illinois in 1861. During the Civil War, he traveled
from Brown County to Pike County, Illinois and joined the
27th Illinois Infantry Regiment (Volunteers). 16 Aug 1861.
He re-enlisted as a veteran and transferred to the 9th
Illinois Infantry Regiment in Apr 1864. He was mustered out
9 Jul 1865 in Louisville, Kentucky. I am hoping that maybe
his parents John Reeves and Susan Harmon resided in Brown
County during this time frame, also. I am not able to find
Noble or his parents in any other Illinois documentation,
census, marriage or death records.   
     He married Mary Jane Rooks 16 Oct 1875 in Sullivan
County, Missouri. They had four children.  He died in
Sullivan County 14 Jan 1884 and is buried in Deeds Cem. They
are in the Missouri 1880 census.  His son John Noble Reeves
is the connection to my son-in-law’s mother Marietta
Reeves, born in Modesto CA., 27 Oct 1940, since passed away
and the family does not know any genealogy on the family.
     I am looking for ANY other info that you might
have that would verify the connection of the names of his
father and mother and where they were from, i.e., residence,
ages, parents, etc. Were they from Kentucky ?? Did they ever
live in Illinois ?? I find several John Reeves living in
Brown County during this time frame that could fit, however
not with a wife named Susan (Harmon), or a child named
Noble. Was Noble’s middle name Willis ??
     I have exhausted every possible source I can find
at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. I
hope you can help me.
