My mother's surname was Reason and my grandfather's and so on. I have been trying to do research on my Reason surname in NC but I can not find them anywhere. I was told that the surname Reason is not common in North Carolina. I was wondering if I am in anyway possibly realated to William Reason. My grandfather was Benjamin Franklin Reason (b. July 26, 1919, d. April 6, 2000). His father was James Herman Reason and his mother was Annie Jones. James Herman Reason was born around 1880, and I have no clue about Annie Jones. James's parents were Edwood (Edward) Reason and Nancy Caroline Spruill. Edwood was born around 1851. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
