Local Histories

Vol 2 of The Historical encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Ogle County is based on previous works including Boss's "History of Ogle County (1850); Kett's "History of Ogle County" (1878); Portrait and Biographical Album of Ogle County" (1886); "The Biographical Record of Ogle County" (1899); Ford's "History of Illinois"

The biography of Samuel Reed Jr in The Historical encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Ogle County[1] states that Samuel Reed Jr was born in Middletown, Delaware County, New York 23 May 1790, the son of Samuel Reed and Mary Benedict. Samuel Reed Sr. enlisted in the War of 1812 and about 1817 or 1818 moved to Jackson County, Ohio and later to Ross County, Ohio until 1827 or 1828 when he moved to Fort Clark (now Peoria), Illinois. Samuel Reed Jr married Phebe Sanford and joined his father about 1820. In 1830 Samuel Jr spent the winter in Peoria and moved to Buffalo Grove (then Jo Daviess County, now Ogle) in the spring of 1831. Samuel Jr sent his family away during the Black Hawk War; they later returned to Buffalo Grove. Samuel Reed Sr was the first death in Buffalo Grove during a visit 17 Aug 1833 and was buried in what became the Reed cemetery.

In Sketches of the History of Ogle County, Ill, Boss[2] discusses the arrival and settlement of Samuel Reed at Buffalo Grove and moving his family due to the war. He also notes that Elisha Doty arrived in Buffalo Grove in 1834, coming from Peoria. In May of 1834 Albion Sanford and his family arrived, followed in the fall by Cyrenus, Ahira, and Harrison Sanford. Cyrenus was the father of Ahira, Albion and Harrison.

In Kett's The History of Ogle County, Illinois[3] the biography of William S Reed identifies his parents as Samuel Reed and Phebe Sanford and says that William, born 24 Aug 1828 near Chillicothe, Ohio came with his parents to Fort Clark in 1830 then to Buffalo Grove on 1 Apr 1831. This says that his father Samuel was a native of Delaware County, New York and mother Phebe a native of Connecticut.

Simon Reed has a biography in The History of Peoria County, Illinois.[4] This states that he was born 11 Sep 1795 in Rensselaer County and raised on his father's farm in Delaware County, New York where he married Currance Sanford 13 Oct 1816. A few years after the marriage, they moved to Jackson County, Ohio where they remained until 1825, when he moved to Peoria County with two other brothers. A few years after Simon and Aaron (presumably a brother) moved to Peoria County, brothers Samuel and Thomas came west, Samuel settling in Ogle County and Thomas in Medina Township (Peoria).

The Historical encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Ogle County Vol 2[5] includes a biography of Cyrenus Sanford and his family. The family came from Roxbury, Delaware County, New York to Peoria County, Illinois in 1833 then settled in Buffalo Grove, Ogle County, Illinois. Cyrenus Sanford was born in Connecticut in 1775 and moved to New York at age 19 or 20. Son Albion Sanford married Mrs. Lucy Osterhoudt Moats and they had two daughters Mary Holmes and Emily Scranton. (Note: Albion Sanford married second to Ellen Power in 1858; Albion and Ellen later moved from Ogle County to Wapella Township, Dewitt, Illinois.)

Clues at the Delaware County NY Genealogy and History Site (https://www.dcnyhistory.org/index2.html) are found in old (1997) Surname Reed queries about Samuel D Reed Sr b. 1766 in Massacusetts married Mary Benedict 1789 in Middletown, Delaware County, New York. Mary Benedict b. 24 Jan 1771 Easton, Washington County, New York. First son Samuel Reed Jr b. 23 May 1790 Rensselaer County, New York. Another query has Mary born in Rensselaer County, and says he moved to Middletown soon after the close of the War of 1812 married Mary Benedict, a needlemaker's daughter. Existing profiles for Samuel Reed and Mary Benedict do not agree with some of these facts, but need sources.
