Hi Rick Gray,
   The James REESE buried in Reese's Chapel Cemetery is  my 5th great-Grandpa. His full name is James Polk
 REESE and he is the son of Rev. David REESE and Sarah  Ruth POLK. This info comes from the same book as John  MACK Sr. "To Hope, To Labor, And So To Live" by Mary  P. Engels.  I have a copy of the book. We also find the info in a book done by a REESE descendant as well as other sources I have listed in my tree. I am also a  descendant of the ALEXANDER, MACK, WILSON, BREVARD,  HUTSON (HUDSON), BURNETT, McKNITT (McKNIGHT,  MacKNIGHT), POLK (POLLOK, POLLOCK) families as well.
 A  black and white version of the photo of the same headstone in color was taken by Mary P. Engels and published in the book I have. Thanks for the  color version of the same headstone.Thanks.  Patti Heath
