I am the grandson of Nelson Joseph Reed (Elsie's twin brother. I am stuck at the same place. I do have a copy of John "Jack" Reed's death certificate. It has a birth date of 12 Dec 1864. The birth place stated is OH and his fathers name is Monroe. I don't know if I trust the birth place or Father's name; but, I believe the birth date is correct. There is some history about John Jack and Mary that was passed down through the famly. John was 30 when he married Mary, age 15. The families were not too happy about that, and apparently they (Jack and Mary) misrepesented Jack's age in both the 1900 and 1910 census. His correct age is given in the 1920, and 1930 census. I have some other data that might help; but, I am new to this type of research. Contact me, and we can share info.
