States: Tennessee: Rutherford
Hopefully, males with the Reed/Read/Reid surname that had ancestors with the same name in Rutherford County in the 1800s, will have their DNA tested with the Family Tree DNA project. I had my brother's tested and we are waiting to find matches. Lemuel Read/Reed b ca1797 VA d ca 1845 Rutherford Co, TN was my great great grandfather. He was married to Sarah Jones Fagan, dau of John S. Fagan. They were married in what is now Cannon Co, where the Fagan home was. Lemuel had connections with a Jesse, John and William Reed/Read. Hopefully, other Reed descendent with the surname will be tested and it will help to sort out the Reed/etc of Rutherford co.
