In the begining, the name Reese was spelled in many different ways. As far as I have been able to learn to date, the original being "Rhys", then the addition of the son, "Ap-Rhys", and then "Rees" and finally the addition of the final "e" to make it what it is to me, "Reese". Granted, there are alot of variations of this name and some other spellings, but these are mostly what I would like to research as fully as possible. The Reese/Rees family came from Wales, to the States about 1700 and migrated along a route through the southern states like Tennessee, Kentucky, and settled in southern Illinois. I have been able to contact alot of the Reese's there and would like to find any that may be related to them to further my research. Don't worry about the "e" on the end of the name, as it appears that two brothers got mad at each other one day and the one said he'd just disassociate himself from the other, and removed the final "e". Apparently this happened several times throughout history.
Also would like to research "Roach", "Barr","Newhouse", "Sawhill", "Cleveland", "Ramsey", "Garrett", "Emerson", "Peck",
"Mott".
