I am trying to determine a connection of my Reed family to the Lorings of Plymouth MA.
Jonathan Reed (1767-1845) who married Deborah Porter b. 1765 named a son Jonathan Loring Reed b. 1791.Jonathan Loring married Charlotte Brown. Jonathan's parents are Jonathan Reed (1740-1769) and Mary Tirrell (1742-1774.
Jonathan Loring had a brother John Porter.John Porter b. 1793 married Polly Ramsdale.John Porter had dau they named Mary Loring b. 1817 who married Edwin Brown.
I have not been able to connect these Reeds and Lorings, however, I am fairly sure they are. Any assistance would be most helpful.
