Joseph Reed, early day methodist minister?

I am looking for information about this man.
An early Methodist minister named Jospeh REED or REID was in the area ca 1817 - 1830 (Old MIller, Red River CO., Tx, and Hempstead).
I have an ancestor named Joseph Reed (b. 1783, Ky). I am trying to determine if these are one and the same, or if they are related.

I understand that residents of the area of Doaksville/Ft. Towson paid taxes into ARK before they were kicked out of the area with the new treaty boundary. This may the case here.

A group of REEDS migrated from Livingston CO., KY, MO TERR (Lawrence co.and present day Independence Co., ARK) by the names of Joseph, Robert, John, William. They - or some of them - may have come through Ohio and Tennesse.

The Joseph Reed from KY was married to a Polly, and eventually went back to Washington Co., Ark after they had to leave the settlement at Doaksville. In 1838 they went to Red River Co., TX.

This chronology places this Joseph REED in the areas of the methodist minister of the time period. More confirmation needed.

So - anyone descending from that Rev. Joseph Reed, who with a John Johnson, Thomas Denton, and brother Thoams REED traveled into the area with Rev. William Stevenson (Stephenson)ca 1820, please contact me. I suspect a relationship.....just have to decide what kind...
