REED Family Bible - Australia
Posted by: Ama (ID *****1872) Date: April 21, 2012 at 22:14:57
  of 19143

My husband inherited an old bible that has been pasted on through his family. I have been attempting to find some connections to living relatives to no avail. It may be possible that there are no direct surviving relatives. I cannot find if one of the sons married and/or had any children himself.

BIBLE : The Illustrated Family Bible Old and New Testaments, with the self-interpreting and explanatory notes and marginal references of the late Rev. John Brown, minister of the gospel at Haddington Publisher : A. Fullarton & Co. Stead's Place, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, 45 Union Street, Glasgow and 115 New gate street, London

John Reed born 29 March 1842
Eliza Reed born August 1838 (my note - no day include)
Willian Henery Reed born 16 May 1866 (my note - day could possibly be 10 May)
Joseph Reed born 14th June 1867
Joseph Reed died 2 August 1871
William Henery Reed died 17 August 1891

Note : this is how and the order that the information was written. No death information for John or Eliza.

I have no idea if this information is meaning full.

It is presently located in Queensland, Australia. Originally, i believed that my husbands family was originally from Scotland. I have come to a complete stand still. It appears its the Watson/Montgomery side of the family came from Scotland. I have come to the conclusion that the Trethewey/Reed side of the family may come from Wales or England.

I have back tracked my husbands family back to children of :
John Trethewey and Sarah Ann Reed. They are listed in the Australian Births, deaths, marriages.

1882/c5792 Mary Elizabeth Trethewey
1882/c5794 Sarah Made Trethewey
1886/c8410 Beatrice Anna Trethewey
1886/c10253 John Trethewey
1882/r721 Mary Elizabeth Trethewey

Unfortunately I cannot find the like to those listed in the front of the family bible.

If anyone can offer some assistance I would be greatful.
