According to this affidavit, William Reeves and Susan Hunter were married "...in Cherokee Nation East of the Mississippi."  It the remainder of my narrative here is accurate, this marriage must have taken place in what is today North Carolina and probably between 1780 and 1793.  The earliest child I've applied to them so far is that James who was born Feb 1794 in North Carolina (see below).

One interesting thing about this family is the continuous preference for the name Clarinda "Clara".  This name is repeated for several generations right up to the present day in the descendents.  President Bill Clinton is a descendent of this aledged couple, through their daughter Jane Reaves who married John B Wilson (see [http://www.rootsweb.com/~rwguide/presidents/prez42.htm  Presidents Guide]).
