I am searching for any information to do with JACKSON REED b. 1827 and settling in Claiborne County TN. by the 1840's with the Lee Family on Caney Valley.He is said to have changed his name, cue to killing a RUSSELL man in Virginia.He supposedly took REED from his mothers maiden name, hers rumoured to be a JANIE or MARY JANE REED or possibly MARGARET.I have found a MARGARET REED who was married in DELAWARE COUNTY, OHIO to a JONAH PORTER who had a son named ANDREW JACKSON PORTER born October 26, 1827.Does anyone there have any information about this ANDREW JACKSON PORTER?It seems so coincidental that his mother would be a REED and that his birthdate coincides with my JACKSON REED'S year of birth according to TN. Census Records.IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFORMATION ON THIS MAN, WHERE HE DIED, ANYTHING TO CANCEL OUT MY THEORY OF HIS BEING MY GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER, please let me know at email@example.com.Another clue is his mother supposedly had a child out of wedlock named PRESTON REED, whom she gave to her parents to raise.He also came with JACKSON REED and lived next to him on the Claiborne/Hancock County TN. Line.These are strictly family legends handed down and maybe wrong, but I am still searching. Thankyou.
