My Reed ancestors are also from NC/TN. The only info I have so far is My grandfathers name is Charles Paragon Reed, b about 1885-1895. He married Anne-Kate Margaret Landreth, probably around 1915. They lived in the Ashville/Swannanoa area of NC. Kids- Margaret, Essie Mae 1919, (my mother), Charles P Jr., Eugene, Esther, William. Charles Paragon Reed died 1957, june or july in Washington D.C. He was a stonemason/bricklayer and helped build Biltmore House in Ashville. Anne-kate's mother was Nancy Ann Adams Landreth, her father's name was Benjamin Perry Landreth. They were probable born around the mid 1800's. Please let me know if any of these names are familiar to you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Many Thanks in advance.
