Hello Angela,

I hope that I will be able to help you with your Reid of Kilwinning family.  My data base shows only 3 Joseph Reid;s and each from Kilwinning,  Not a common name in the Reid family lines.  Although I don't have have research on your John Joseph Reid,I do think that I can help as this Kilwinning line goes back to John Reid 1686 Kilwinning married 1708 to Mary Howie.  The first child with the name of Joseph was born in 1712 Kilwinning.

I would need more information going forward but will be happy to assist.

Linda

This is what Scotland People said about 2 seperate surnames on record,as long

as Gros Data # is the same,it is the same person.The change of Surnames happens because she was born with one surname and her mother re married

and has the other surname,You could note this in your tree.
