WILLIAM REED--IA>MO>OK?--1855/58 to 1956
Posted by: Jo Larssen (ID *****7419) Date: July 09, 2003 at 20:47:21

I am needing assistance in tracing and determining my family line.

I have a WILLIAM REED, wife MARY maiden name unknown. They had a son, WILLIAM REED, born 1855 or 1858 in Macon (?) IOWA (not sure of birthplace...was on funeral home records) and died January 16, 1956 in Billings, OK.

This younger WILLIAM also had a wife named MARY, maiden name unknown; and a sister called JANIE, born Oct 1853, and married to FRITZ LINDER, and lived and died in MISSOURI.

When JANIE died (January 24, 1930)in Missouri, a half brother, listed in the obit as M.M.REED, lived in KANSAS CITY.

Somewhere in this family line there was an UNCLE MANNY(?) and a LIZZIE (?) as told to me by a great aunt.

My younger WILLIAM and MARY REED had three children, believed to have been born in PETTIS COUNTY, MO. They were BESSIE, FRANK, and MOLLIE. MOLLIE married ERNEST BENDER SKAGGS in PETTIS COUNTY, and they had one daughter, born in Pettis County, before they divorced.

This has been my brick wall for many years. Any information on this family line, or any information on any REEDS in PETTIS COUNTY MISSOURI or IOWA would be very helpful and appreciated.

My email address is

Thank you
