Hi, Thanks for your interest & reply. Yes, both the Jeptha V. GEORGE & John REID/REED Sr families lived in Monticello area of Jasper Co GA before moving to Pike Co Ga abt 1830's. Jeptha V. GEORGE & Anna T. REID (dtr of John REID Sr) married, but have no clue as to their childrern's name or vitals; still searching.
Obviously this is the same Jeptha V. GEORGE and (my direct ancestor) John REID aka REED Sr,(his son is John Wesley B. REID Sr). This an interesting bit of news, seems ol' Jeptha had many neferious deals going. If you go to the Pike Co GA Archives, you can find Mrs (John) Mary D. REID's Will, 1842 I believe, mentioning Jeptha V. GEORGE many times, which gives you a pretty insightful view of his character. Thanks again. If you ever find more on ol' Jeptha, please let me know.
