I am trying to find the link between two REA families who both lived in Pawnee City, Pawnee County, Nebraska between 1870 and 1908.
George Washington Rea, born in Pennsylvania in 1840, had a son named Albert Harrison Rea, born in Pawnee City January 16, 1875.
James Azel Rea, born in Franklin County, Pennsylvania November 21, 1849 died in Pawnee City in 1937. He also had a daughter, Susie Rea, who was in Pawnee City in 1904.
By sometime prior to 1908, George Washington Rea had moved to Oregon, while James Azel Rea remained in Nebraska.
My theory is that George was also born in Franklin County, Pennsylvania and that the two men are cousins. In order to confirm this, I need to know where George was born and who his parents were. Any help appreciated.
