Elijah and Jane Ross Reeves Descendants

Hancock County, Indiana

I am reaching out to my fellow descendants of Elijah and Jane Ross Reeves.  I have the privilege of being a member of the Board of Directors of the Jane Ross Reeves Octagon House in Shirley, Indiana.  If you are not familiar with this dwelling which is on the National Register of Historic Places, please visit  I have begun a project to create a family tree of Jane and Elijah’s descendants.  If you are a descendant I would appreciate it greatly if you would contribute your information to the tree.  Info about living persons will be kept private.  I also hope to produce a newsletter containing info about the house and our extended family.  If you have any questions about the house or are willing to participate in this project, please contact me at
