I am wondering if there is a connection with my g.grandfather EDWIN REED of Detroit, b.1844. Michigan (Wayne Cty) My family knows little about him. He left home at 13. The REED's in Detroit were suppose to be well off and had a farm where the Ford Motor Co. is now located. Also, A large bldg bearing their name suppose to be in Detroit. He married my g.grandmother L.Alice Reed. She died with a 20 mo.old baby in White Bead, OK. My grand mother was three and had no knowledge of her mother or father's background. EDWIN REED buried in Branch, Ark. Franklin Cty. He was aMason. Any knowledge of this family connected with your family? EDWIN WAS ESTRANGED FROM THEM.
