Hi Joe, I'm glad to meet you. You already know a lot of the "good Stuff." You know John was the son of Robert Reed and Robert Reed was the son of John Reed. You must have their wills, so no need to offer them. I agree with your theory that your "William" is the correct one. Raymond Bell had William m. to a Peggy Scott. Do you think she was wife number one?
Do you know where John and Mary Brotherton Reed are buried ? I wrote Preble Co and was told there was no Eastmound Cem. only a Fairmound and I didn't see them listed. Perhaps too early for more than a field stone?
Anyway, if they were buried in Preble Co. Why? Who lived in Gratis twp? One of the girls? I see where John's sons Robert ,John, and David, were all members of the Swamp Creek Branch Congregation (later named Mount Pleasant Assc. Reformed Church abt. 1807.)
I stumbled onto these Reed Cousins while taking a look at Daniel Doty in Butler Co. I thought he might have been a father to my Maria Doty up in Montgomery Co. OH. When I saw Mary Brotherton married to John Reed, I just about fell over. I'd thought they'd settled Kentucky, never dreaming they were some of the first of the family to make it to Ohio. Ewings, Alexanders, and Taylors came a few yrs. later.
I learned through the Alexander line that Robert Reed's wife named Elizabeth Gardner/Gardiner might have been Indian.There's copies of a charcoal drawing handed down through the family and everything. Sure would like to prove that one. Denise
