Sarah Reeves Geer appears to be the oldest of William Reeves (c1740-1821) children, marrying Frederick Geer (c1755-1840) around 1779. Additionally, she is apparently the only child who predeceased him, dying before 15 Apr 1822 when her heirs execute the following Power of Attorney to her son Jesse B. Geer to act on their behalf in Madison County, Kentucky to settle his estate.
Children of Sarah Reeves and Frederick Geer are Elizabeth Geer, Lucy Geer, William Geer, Mary "Polly" Geer, Sarah "Sarah" Geer, Martha "Patsy" Geer, Susannah Geer, David Geer, Frederick C. Geer and Jesse B. Geer. The majority of the heirs of Sarah Reeves Geer executed the POA to Jesse B Geer to act on their behalf in the settlement of the estate of their grandfather, William Reeves, in 1822. The only exceptions were David Geer and William Geer who had already relocated to Georgia and Mary "Polly" Geer Usery who was living in Tennessee.
