In doing further research, I see many entries in places like Ancestry.com's family trees site which state that William Reed, son of Job and Nancy (Carey) Reed, of Marion Co., OH, married a Martha Stultz, died in 1902 and is buried in the Old Rose Hill Cemetery in Mahaska Co., Iowa. None of the trees have sources for the death date or marriage of William Reed, so all is suspect, but they appear to match well with census studies. In the 1880 and 1900 censuses, Wm. Reed states his parents were both born in Delaware, and we know that the marriage of Job Reed and Nancy Carey took place in Delaware. This makes it pretty likely that even though William Reed is named as William Harriman in 1850 and is with his mother (Nancy Carey Reed Harraman) and stepfather, David Harraman, he cannot be the same as the William Harriman who married Mary Ann Luke and died in 1906. Back to square one! But perhaps Tony McDonald has continued to research the ancestory of mysterious William Harriman of Noble Co. OH and has an answer. Please post if she does! Thanks, SueB.
