Up for a challenge? Eliphalet Reed parents?

+5 votes
This one has stumped me for awhile. I'd love to know who Eliphalet Reed's parents were. His wife also has me at a brick wall. Anyone who just loves genealogy challenges want to take a hammer to this one?

Thank you for any help or even attempt to help - I appreciate it!

You have birth place Massachusetts and Maine?
It was Massachusetts when he was born but is currently Maine.
Also, just to note, Dixmont was located in Hancock County in 1805. Penobscot didn't exist until 1816.
