Hi.....I am need to find any cousins to Andrew Jackson...Either from The Hutchinson side, McCamie,Crawford, or Leslie,or even Jackson. According to the book written by Jesse W. Reid,( my ?ggg-grandfather)his grandfather Joseph Reid was married to Andrew Jackson's cousin.We know Joseph had a son Rueben Reid,born on 8/22/1785. (Andrew Jackson would have been around 18 at that time). There were several other brothers (of Rueben).....George,Joseph,Jesse,Blincoe,and 3 sisters one who married a man named Beard. Thanks.
An excerpt from the book: this is on page 131: On the 5th day of February, 1824, I was born in what was then Pendleton District, South Carolina, in the portion now known as Oconee county. My father, Reuben Reid, was a school teacher and surveyor by profession. He was born August 22, 1785, which was but a few years after his father, Joseph Reid, had moved from Virginia, where he was raised.
He was, I think, of Scottish descent. My father’s mother was also raised in Virginia, and was a cousin to Andrew Jackson, who was twice president of the United States. I remember hearing my father speak of four brothers of his—George, Joseph, Jesse and Blincoe. I never knew any of them except George, the eldest brother. He and his children are all dead. My father also had three sisters, but I have never seen them. One of them married a man named Beard.
