Sandy, I descend from Col. George Barnhardt, my 4th ggf. I looked for John Reed's (my 5th ggf)will on the web (as you said it was), but cannot locate it. Can you direct me? I need as much info on John Reed as possible for a DAR application. I have seen the headstones of John and wife, Sarah, in a book. Would you have pictures of the stones showing the dates? I have found where there is a land entry for 30 acres in John Reed's name on First Meadow Creek on March 8, 1779. Since the discovery of gold on his property was on Little Meadow Creek, I would think he is the same John Reed of the land entry. I hope his will mentions his daughter, Martha "Patsy" by name. The DAR is very particular.
