. Previous traditions were that Abraham was supposedly a s/o Solomon Reece of Surry Co, NC and Sarah Boone, of the Daniel
. Boone family. Another tradition is that he came to NC as a "bound boy", and that he was born out of wedlock to a Pennsylvania
. Quaker girl, and was supposedly the illegitimate son of the legendary Daniel Boone. No proof of any of these. However a recent
. book "Reece-Reese Forebears and Descendants", 1993, Dr. Saford H. Landreth, reportedly states that Abraham's father was
. Thomas Reece, b ca 1720, who lived in NC and had sons Abraham, John, David, Daniel, and Thomas Reeece Jr. Dr. Landreth's
. address: 30 Armstrong St, Salem, Va 24153. The Pulaski County (Va) Public Library has a copy of his book.
