Your BENJAMIN FRANKLIN REID is not a relation of mine, but I found information on  Did your BENJAMIN FRANKLIN REID marry NORA?  Were their children IDA, NELLIE (NELL) and CHRISTINE?

They lived in Dothan, Houston Co., Alabama and B F REID was a "lawyer".  He died on Mar 27, 1925 in Dothan, Houston Co., Alabama, at the age of 57 (estimated birth year would be 1869).   (Death record shows "Col. B F REID).  It also states that his father is BEN REID, who was born in Georgia, and his mother is ELIZABETH RHODES, who was born in Georgia.

Could you please be more specific as to what you information you need?  I was able to track this REID family on Census records (back to 1850) and don't want to give you more info than you need.

Sincerely, Melinda
