Looking into a line of REED in Livingston Co. in this time period. People of this name are all in Livingston Co., and are connected with the REED family of John Reed, son of James & Margaret Floyd REED.
Several of the names in the collateral lines repeat the names of these people (in my own line there is a James Miller Terry reflecting the name of the man a Betsy REED married) and a Henderson Lafferty Terry and these names are found in the CRAIG Line).
This is good circumstantial evidence of relationship and serves to confirm the proposed relationship of my own Joseph REED to John son of James. He went into Ark Territory and Texas all before 1845.
Anyone with these names in this locale or related ones, please contact me and let us exam this lead.
