I am researching Reece Reason McDIFFITT as well. My husband is descended through his and Hannah's son George W. McDiffitt. I have yet to find any source/documents that support who "Rezin's" parents are, and would love to know if someone else has? I've seen it stated that Uriah is his father--by what source(s) and or deductions was that reached? I can share a fair amount of info on George W. and his descendants in return for any assistance/guidance for Rezin's parents.
Also, I am trying to figure out the following: In the 1880 census there is a neice residing in the home with Rezin and Hannah and their two sons, William and George.The neice's name is Emma HOWARD (?? the last name is hard to decipher); she is 20 and born in Iowa while both of her parents were born in Pennsylvania.I believe Emma's parents to be George and Christina HOWARD, but I do not know who is related to whom--- in other words is Christina Rezin's sister? Is George or Christina siblings of Hannah's? I am leaning towards a connection between Rezin and Christina because Rezin is found living in George and Christina's household in August 1850.Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated as well.
