Reese's Church and Cemetery is located 9 miles south of Columbia Tennessee on the Campbellsville Pike. It is behind the old Reese's Chapel Church building, an old historic church building that is well maintained. Going south after one passes the Mt Pleasant Lane or sometimes called Reese's Church Road go past that 200 yards and look for a lockable metal gate (5-31-03) on the right.  The Church and Cemetery are down that road due west 100 yards inside two more gates. 
There are at least 6 known Revolutionary Soldiers interred in this Cemetery. It is thought Charles Alexander the seventh was also buried there. 
For more information on this Cemetery see the book Historic Ebenezer Presbyterian Church & Cemetery", by Virginia W & Charles C. Alexander; there are listings included there which are not on this site due to proprietary reasons. 
Another source is: "Maury County Tennessee Cemeteries", by Fred L Hawkins.  Included in this book are more histories and biographies of those interred in this cemetery. 
Another source, an excellent treatise on Charles Alexander's Revolutionary service & life is included in the book "Let the Drums Roll, Veterans & Patriots of the Revolutionary War who settled in Maury County Tennessee", by Marise P. Lightfoot. There you will find the R. W. service and some biographical info on all the Soldiers listed in this cemetery as serving or aiding the American Revolutionary War effort.
