I am seeking any information concerning a Jack Andrew Reed/Reid (born 1905, McDowell Co., WV; d 1954, Austin, TX), who apparently lived in the San Antonio, TX area from the 1920s until the time of his (out-of-town) death in 1954.
Jack, by the way, was the son of a "Mattie" Melvin (bc 1876, Mercer Co., WV) and Andrew Jackson “Jack” Reed (b June, 1868; Monroe Co., WV; dc 1907-09, possibly McDowell, Wyoming or Summers Co., WV), who was married in Mercer Co., WV in October, 1899. This was Jack's second marriage, as his first wife (Alice Woods ; bc 1871, Summers Co., WV), who bore him four children (Johnny, Jimmy, Nellie and Betty), apparently died due to complications of childbirth in 1898. As for Mattie's marriage to Jack, she apparently had at least two children by him: Jack and Della Ray Reed (b 1908 or 1909, Wyoming Co., WV; d1917, Springton, Mercer Co., WV).
Any information concerning Jack, his family or the circumstances surroundinghis or his father’s (Andrew “Jack” Reed’s) death, would be most very much appreciated. The younger Jack may have even gone by the nickname "Earl", early in his life.
