I noticed that you are interested in the HORTON and HUFFT surnames as well as the REEDS. I am descended from Hugh Horton, b. ca 1784, d. 1849 in Cass County, MO. His wife was Rebecca Scott, b. 17 Jul 1788 and d. 20 Aug 1873 in MO. Their daughter Elizabeth married George E. HUFFT, b. 26 Dec 1819 TN and d. 12 Apr 1889, Clinton Co., MO. I also know that George had a sister, Mahala, who married Matthias REED. I believe this Matthias moved to Jackson County and is buried in Blue Township. I'm happy to exchange information.
