Charles W. Reed is the son of George F Reed and Maria Lyke. Charles was born January 26, 1855. Charles married Zipporah (Shimel) Reed October 23, 1875. Zipporah's name is variously misspelled Cepporah, Giffora, Sepaura and Zipora. In 1940 Census Charles was living with daughter Estella Mae (Reed) Conover and Floyd Conover in Rio Grande County, Colorado. There is a double plot (#398) in Rose Hill Cemetary, Lamoni, IA and Zipporah (mispelled Zaporah) is buried there. The copy of the Rose Hill records that I have, have no date of death for Charles, so, I don't know if Charles is actually buried there or not.
