Thank you for adding me to your family name group.  I look forward to assist and learning from others in the group.
I'm not sure how to join this study.  My Grandmother was a Reed.  Her name is Mabel Townsend Reed.  I have traced her line back to Phillip Reed B:11 July 1756 Norwich, New London, Connecticut. D:20 March 1828 Richmond, Ontario County New York.  His father was Jacob Reed.  I believe they also lived in Vermont.   I haven't had time to add them all to WikiTree yet.  I am relatively new and don't have much time to work on it right now but will do it whenever I have a few minutes.  Thanks.

Hi Billie,

Good project choice!  I'm finding it harder to trace the Reids than the Smiths, and would welcome the opportunity to collaborate.

I'm researching two Read/Reid lines. Eliphalet Read migrated from Rehoboth, Massachusetts to a part of Nova Scotia Colony that's now in New Brunswick, among the New England Planters in the 1760's.

The second, William Reid has been a bit of a brick wall - there are simply too many William Reid's!  A distant relative suggests his ancestor Alexander Reid emigrated from Scotland to Nova Scotia in the 1780s, but so far I haven't found any sources to confirm or deny the suggestion, or much clear information on Alexander.

I'm hoping to make a trip to the east coast to look in the paper archives, there may be information that's not yet online. I'll tag my Reid/Read/Reeds for the study shortly, and share any sources I find as I make progress.

Hi Billie,

I am a descendant of Anne (Reid) Unwin, born in Newfoundland around 1845 and emigrated here to New Zealand.  Her Father John "Brickwall" Reid was in Newfoundland, not sure if he was born there, but I have a number of Reids on my DNA match list, and they all seem to descend from a man Stephen Reid who was born around 1740.   

I get the impression that REID is a Huge Newfoundland family.

Just did this; but I already had a "Reid" tag, old one so maybe it didn't count.

Would love to join. Charlotte S. Reed b 1826/27 in New York is my brick wall. in 1850 MI census find her in this family,

Waterloo, Jackson, Michigan

Ralph Updike        M    64    New York
Mary A Updike        F    54    New York
Mary E Updike        F    15    New York
Henry Reed        M    54    Connecticut
Charlotte S Reed        F    23    New York
Matthew Mcneal        M    25    Ireland.

I think Henry may be her father. She marries John B. Bezzo and has a child in MI in 1851 so pretty sure this is her. Have no info prior to this census. Maybe this study will help nibble away at this wall I have.

I would like to join.  My husband is a Reed and I have traced them to New Jersey in 1778 when James Reed married Elizabeth Peacock, daughter of Adonijah Peacock of Burlington who made gunpowder for Washington’s army (and died in the process). I can not find Janes Reed’s parents, or his birthplace or anything before his marriage.

Yes please!  I'm currently struggling to find my great-grandfather was Byron John (aka Barney) Reid.  B. 1857, probably in Milwaukie WI.  Died approx 1916 in Missouri or Illinois.  He was married at least twice and my grandmother was from his first marriage.  I can find no record of his birth or his parents names.

Thank you!

Please add to the study.  My great -grandfather was Byron John (aka Barney) Reid.  B. 1857 possibly in Milwaukie WI.  D. approx 1916 in Missouri or Indiana.  He was married twice and my grandmother is from his first marriage. I have not been able to find his birth record, death record, or any thing with his parents names.  It's possible his father is Robert W. Reid - they are listed as living in the same household in Milwaukie in the 1890s and RW is old enough to be his father, or perhaps his uncle.  Again..unclear.

Any ideas would be helpful

I married into the REED family of NEWARK, DELAWARE.  Unfortunately, my feed is filled with Reed's from everywhere else and with such a common name it causes me to get unrelated information.

My Reeds are not sure they are actually of the Reed surname.
Richard "Dick" Reed lived in Elk City Oklahoma and as a young child he was a Indian captive. When older he escaped and he did not know what his surname was. He was wearing some jewelry that said Reed so it is the surname my grandfather went by.

I am working to find the parents of James Reed of Burlington county NJ Born in the 17150s and married to Elizabeth Peacock.  The only mentions I have found are their wedding registry and a sentence in an article about Adonijah Peacock that mentioned Elizabeth Married James Reed and went West.  All later information about the family does not name his parents.
