Reeves family. A good place to start is the history of the Reeves family name, and you will learn that the name has been around for at least a thousand years, which is about as old as some of us are.

The next place you might want to venture is the mini-description of Warren County, Kentucky. The family arrived there about 1816 and has squatted and lived there ever since.

Ewing family. The Ewing family is a little different, and there is less information about it. It did reside in Allen County, Kentucky, for a while, but how it got there is less certain. "Ewing," though, is Scottish. Visit the Ewing family name to learn a little about your Scottish heritage.
