Notes for Keziah REECE
According to Past and Present of Hardin County, Iowa (ed. by William J. Moir. Indianapolis: B. F. Bowen, 1911), The Reece family, whose members are so well known in Hardin county, Iowa, all trace their descent to Abraham Reece, who was taken as a bound boy from Pennsylvania to Surry (now Yadkin) county, North Carolina, about the year 1755. He was one of the first settlers in that section, about three miles south of the Yadkin river, near the present site of the town of Boonville. He was married about 1770 to Mary Hough, and from this pair are descended the Hardin county branch of the Reece family. The name has come through many changes, being originally of Welsh origin. To Abraham and Mary Reece were born eight sons and four daughters, namely: Daniel, Jemima, Eli, Levi, Abraham, Mary, Joel, Jesse, Keziah, Thomas, Sarah and John. Of these sons, the ones more generally mentioned are Levi, Joel, Thomas and John, although it may be that the descendants of the others are just as worthy. This review is concerned with the family of Levi.
