James Reid and Jane Gemmell of County Ayrshire, Scotland are the parents of Thomas Reid 1813-1878 b. County Ayr, Scotland d. Ohio. He is my 3rd GGF and he married into the James Crockett family of Henry County, Ohio, as did his son James Reid married Amanda Crockett, and his daughter Jane (Jessie) Reid married Edwin Crockett then Thomas Reid m. his second wife Almira Crockett all siblings and children of James Crockett. It seems that this was also common in Scotland when Reid and Gemmell's family married into the other families.

Jane (Gemmell) Reid mother of Thomas Reid with James Reid, Thomas Reid Jr, and Jane Reid immigrated to America about 1843r after James Reid 1871- 1841 died and Thomas Reid's first wife Marion (Bone Reid) died in Scotland in 1841. Any details on the deaths of James Reid and Marion Reid in Ayrshire, Scotland would be appreciated. It would be ideal to find out more about the Gemmell family. Thomas Gemmell b. abt 1750 father of Jane Gemmell and their family who married into the Reid Scotland.
