I am trying to find out who the parents were of my gg grandfather William Nelson Reed. William married Nancy A. Minnis in Scottsville, MO about 1839.
William is the father of Phillip W. Reed, who is the father of Ira M. Reed and thus my father, Elmer Lavern Reed. All of whom I believe to be from Winigan, in Sullivan Co., MO. Any information on these people would be greatly appreciated.
