Sorry Kay, but I do not have anything on the Reeds.

My aunt by marriage, Norma Reed Lance, has quite a bit of Reed data. However, hers is mainly after her line got as far as Franklin County, IL. I think they have the North Carolina origins.

I think if I could have some of the Reed family maybe I could fit Sarah Reed Piles into it. Her maiden surname was Piles/Pyles. The Reed evidently is given because someone of her folks had a Reed background.

Sarah and Moses were marrried in Orange County, NC in 1810. I am not sure of their birth counties in that all the IL census states is the State of birth. Moses Williams was born in 1783 in North Carolina and Sarah Reed Piles was born in 1794-95.

If you find anything on this couple please contact me.
