!BIRTH: Information per records of Heber E. Poulson 4350 Hawarden Circle, West Valley City, Utah 84119. Have also seen birthplace recorded as Albrighton or Pondsgreen. Ruyton and Albrighton are very close in proximity. Cannot find any records of a Pondsgreen in Shropshire. !Some family records indicate that he was buried on the Plains.

!See notes for father, William Reeves, as follows: NOTE ON CHILDREN'S BIRTHPLACE: Nov 1993-July 1994 tried to verify place of birth for children of William & Sarah. Skeptical as to whether our Wm. Reeves belonged to this family. Not able to find all children on the microfilm of parish records. Found child #1 William Reeves (1797, who is an older brother to our William that probably died in infancy -- It was a common practice in England to name another baby after the one who had passed away) on Ruyton, Shropshire film. Also found children #9 and #10, Benjamin and Mary (twins). Was not able to find any other children on the film. Microfilm unreadable in some places. Obtained archive record for this family from SLC. Two records on file-- one with Albrighton and another with Ruyton as birthplace. Wrote letters to submitter of information (Evadean Francisco of Tropic, UT) but no response, perhaps she has passed away. I have concluded through my research and correspondence that our William Reeves (1801) does belong to this family. (Note by Kimber Norton Blatter)

There is an account that he was buried on the Plains.

  1. Pondsgreen, Shropshire is probably Prees Green, a hamlet in Prees parish.

    There are two places named Albrighton in Shropshire. This is more likely Albrighton (near Shrewsbury) which is closer to Ruyton.
