Jess William SHREEVE-7825 was born 1 on 22 Sep 1870 in Jasper, Illinois, United States. He died 2 on 24 May 1943 in Alva, Woods, Oklahoma, United States. Jess married 3 (MRIN:3422) Rachel Effie FARR-7821 on 18 Mar 1895 in Toledo, Cumberland, Illinois, United States.

From Find A Grave Memorial #5074805:
First-born son of Enos Shreeve(s) and Adaline Wakefield Shreeve(s). Married Rachel Effie Farr on 18 Mar, 1895 in Toledo, IL. Father of Ruby Valentine, Roger Noel, Foster Norman, Glenn Sylven, Eva Dorothy, Evia Dorcue, Enos Logan, Mary Louise & Hildreth Pauline Shreeve.

Jesse came to Oklahoma early in 1902 to a farm in the Yellowstone Community in Woods County. Rachel came later in the same year with three small children. They lived in a two-room dugout for eight years. From the dugout they moved 'up the hill' into a five-room cement block house. The cement blocks were made by Jesse and a neighbor, R. I. DeGeer. The house stood until late in 1974 when it was torn down by the present owner.

Jesse hauled kerosene and gas from Alva to Old Freedom. He would bring a wagon load of wheat into Alva and return with a load of kerosene and gas. The wagon was pulled by four mules. 

On June 17, 1920, Jesse was struck by lightning. He was standing by a header barge in the barnyard with his son, Foster, and was leaning with his left arm on an iron wheel. It burned the back of his shirt off his back except for the collar and left a bad burn on his back that looked like a steak of lightning. It also knocked the eyelets out of one shoe, knocked the top out of his straw hat and stuck two silver dollars together in his pocket. He was unconcious for several days and in a great deal of pain. His recovery was a miracle. 

The family moved to Siloan Springs, Arkansas in 1932 and moved to Alva, Oklahoma in 1938.
