Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 370, Monon Township, White County, Indiana

"DR. JOHN T. REED was born in Delaware County, Indiana, May 9, 1850. He is a son of JAMES M. and NANCY E. (SMITH) REED, the former having been born in Clinton County, Ohio, in 1826, the latter in Bartholomew County, Indiana, in 1827. DR. REED attended school, and labored on the paternal farm until he was seventeen years old, when he began the study of medicine with DR. B. F. SNODGRASS, of Delaware County. He was industrious, determined youth, and succeeded in saving sufficient means to attend the Eclectic Medical College at Cincinnati, and, by turns, taught school in Delaware, White and Pulaski Counties. Afterward, he became a clerk at Yorktown, and on April 11, 1872, married HENRIETTA A. STEPHENSON, of Muncie; to this union were bestowed five children - BERTHA MAY (deceased), ALONZO E., CHARLES M., ROSCOE C. and BESSIE M. After his marriage, he resumed farming and teaching, and in 1876 moved to Tippecanoe County and began the practice of medicine; thence to Beaver Township, Pulaski County, and finally to this township, where he has erected a fine store and dwelling, and obtained a fair practice. DR. REED is an Odd Fellow, and in politics a Republican."
