In Reply to: MICAJAH REEDER VA TO AR by Linda Roberts of 2206

Linda and all--here's what I have on Micajah and children. Most of the information came from the book "Maryland and Virginia Colonials" by Sharon Doliante. As always, if anyone has contradictory or additional information, I'm interested though he's not my direct line. JIM

Individual Summary - 1 May 2001
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name:       Micajah REEDER
Sex:       Male
Father:       Simon REEDER Sr. (bet 1715 and 1735 - Jun 1797)

       Elijah REEDER (abt 1795 - )
       Micajah REEDER Jr. ( - )
       Elizabeth REEDER (1800 - )

Notes (Individual)
Moved: "Today I found in the papers at Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Ok. a photostat of a petition in 1825 from residents of what was then Miller County, AR. but is now part of Oklahoma. In the citizens were protesting having to move from land that had been assigned to the Choctaws. This area is in SE Oklahoma.
The petition was signed by both Micajah Reder and Noah Reeder.
This agrees with information in Goodspeed's history of Washington, AR in which a son of Jacob Chandler and Elizabeth Reeder states that the family first lived on land belonging to the Choctaws before being required to move to Washington Co. in 1825."
