At first blush, I don't find a connection between names at different locations. Perhaps you can add to this summary, created from the linked profile.

John Reeves (Reeves-854) is reported by WikiTree to have been born in 1843 and married in 1866 at Nova Scotia. He has a linked daughter, Sarah, who is reported born at Nova Scotia in 1868; married there in 1887; dited there in 1888.

As above, perhaps you have a reason to believe the man of 1875 of Canton, Illinois, was born at Canada?
