I am Dean McAdoo, nephew of William Reese. He was my Dad's older brother. My Dad was George Nolan. They were both sons of George Henry.
McAdoo Township is located about 5 miles South of Coats, Kansas. It was named for William Reese's Grandfather William James. I was raised in Coats, Kansas and didn't leave until I graduated from high school. I knew Uncle Bill and Aunt Mid (William Reese and Mildred) very well as they lived a number of years in Coats. In fact, they lived there more than once.
How do you connect back to William Reese? I probably have quite a bit of info which you are welcome to.
