 James Reed born 1750 Burlington, New Jersey - died 1835 Privacy Level: Open (White) Reed-16223

James married Elizabeth Peacock (peacock-2791) and their marriage is recorded and well documented.  I have not been able to find his place or date of birth (other than on the marriage certificate) and his parents names or locations.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

"James was born in 1750 in Burlington NJ. He married Elizabeth Peacock, daughter of Adonijah Peacock and Elizabeth Springer in 1778 in Burlington NJ and they moved “west”. They settled in Fayette County Pennsylvania where they farmed and reared six or seven children. He served in the battle of Princeton in 1777 and also served in 1779 in Pennsylvania."

Barbara Reed, G2G Crew. The Reeds have certainly been fond of "James" - my nephew is "the IV" of the current "James" lineage in my family line which started with my GrandFather and the name "James", as I'm sure you know, was frequently used in all branches of the Reed family, for a very long time before now and my GrandFather's day.  I've some old research documents that I've started going through and if I come across something re your James Reed/Elizabeth Peacock I'll let you know.  Kate Reed
