Maggie was the daughter of John Ross Reeves and Amelia Selvey. Amelia was said to be Cherokee Indian, but John Reeves did not register Maggie on the rolls like he did her two half-brothers. John R. Reeves was born at Spring Place, Murray County, Georgia. Her mother, Amelia Selvey Reeves, died when Maggie was a small child. Her father remarried twice, both were Cherokee Indian women.
Maggie married Allen Ross Bennett, February 4, 1906, at Pryor Creek, Mayes County, Indian Territory, Ok. Rev. C. C. Hosfelt officiating.
Maggie learned much from her Indian step-mothers, including how to speak fluent Cherokee. She learned how to pick out special wild plants to mix and make herbal medicines when her children were sick. She was a quick shot with a gun and could hunt down her own rabbits to make stew for the family table. Maggie never got over the death of her son, Nyal Hogan Bennett, who died on Corregidor, P.I., during World War Two. He remains were never found.
