I realize this message is a couple of years back, but hope someone can help me.
I am interested in the names of children of Tobias Reams, and any other information about him. Was he from PA? My ancestor, John Reams/Reeme born 1811 in PA was married in Jefferson County, MS to Jane Lee in 1834. I have not been able to determine if he had family in the MS/LA area or came down alone as a young man.
I hope someone can help me locate my Reams/Reeme line from 1834 back. John's name was spelled Reams on his marriage record, but the name was later written as Reeme, Ream, Reams, etc. depending on census taker. The family mostly used Reeme and that is used today.
