Does anyone know who Eleanor Reeves was? She was possibly murdered sometime around 1843 in Allen County. I found an Eleanor Reaves in the 1840 Allen census, age 40 to 50 with 4 males and 2 females, ranging in age from under 5 to 20-30. I also found a marrige for an Elender Johnson to William Reaves in Allen County 11 Feb 1819. There was a trial for her murder and a change of venue was requested in March 1843 in the Kentucky General Assembly for the defendants, Mary McClary and Jacob, a slave of Robert McClary.
