My ggg-grandfather was Robert Reed, and my gg-grandfather was Elbert, brother of Jehu. I, too, have heard of the killing of Jehu, from my grandfather, Crede Reid (now deceased). I grew up on Reid (spelling changed) land, about 500 yards from Reid's Chapel Church. The church sits on a hill above the old homesite of the Quinn family, from which came George, who I have heard killed Jehu. There are two stories I have heard, one involving Jehu's dare to trespassers, and another involving George Quinn's intent to see one of Jehu's daughters. I can't prove either, but they have both been told to me by my family members for years.
