According to family info (but not documented), Araminta REID was born in Hannibal, Ohio, in 1827...called Baresville in early times). She married James Smith, of Jefferson county (son of Joseph and Roseanne Baxter Smith). James and Araminta had 4 little girls; Olivia (died as infant, Alice (my great grandmother who married a Bullard; Eva, married a Nye; Edith, married her cousin John Smith.
Araminta died young, in 1859, and is buried in Emma Grove Cemetery, in Hannibal. She and her own family had lived in Clarington before her death, but she was taken back to Hannibal for burial, so I imagine she still had parents and/or other family in the area.....I just haven't been able to find them. So, I'm looking for any REED/REIDs in the area.
