I read with interest your information on Elizabeth (Shumaker) Reel. My great grandfather is John Reel originally from Fairfield, Ohio. I didn't realize his mother's name was Elizabeth and that she had passed away in 1873. I knew he was raised by the Bauer's and I thought his dad's name was Wilhelm according to our local church records, but nothing was there about his mother. Our annual Reel reunion will be August 6th, 2006 at Strasburg, Il and I know Kelly has been to some of our reunions. I will pursue looking for information on Jacob Reel and the two sisters. I had been to Ohio a few years ago and tried to look up some information at a county courthouse, but got busy with my kids and job and dropped anymore follow-ups. I am excited to see the information on Elizabeth and her family. I hope you will be able to post more information in the future.
