Earliest I have is 1860 Census
(Jefferson Twnshp, Montgomery Co, OH)
John also served in Civil War 63rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry
Company I (age 41)
1860 census lists birth place as ohio
1870 census lists birth place as New York
I think New York is correct.
Family legend has it that either he or his father was a Scotish immigrant.Also that there was a tiff of some sort between he and his father so he changed his name from Reed to Reid.
Is anyone else working on this tree?Or can anyone tell me if Civil War records would list his parents, date of birth, or place of birth?
