Henry Reedy was born 27 Jan 1808 d 24 Mar 1881.He is buried in Colwell Cemetery, Mahoning Twp., Armstrong County, Distant, PA.He was a farmer who married Ellen Edwards abt 1836. She was born abt 1816. Henry owned a 100 acre farm on top of "Hogback Hill" (as it is known locally)/(Rt 66/28)Distant PA.The farm was in two townships Pine Twp & Wayne Twp.Ellen is also buried in Colwell Cemetery.Inscribed on Henry's grave stone are the words "Go home my friends and don't have worries, I must lay here until Christ appears."
They had the following children:

John J is my husband's gg grandfather.
I do not know who Henry's parents were, but it is believed that his father's name was Bernard or John Henry Reedy. Children were:
Henry (1808-1881) George (1811-1871) Barnard (1812-1922) Robert (1821-1897) John Forster (1821-1886) Anna (1839-1905)
When my husband and I first started tracing this family we had very little to go on because my husband's father and grandfather both died young.We were very fortunate to make contact with a very special lady who lived in GA who was able to put alot of pieces together for us. She was visiting family in the same town as we were visiting in PA and took us to see cemeteries to include the farm mentioned above.That was probably 6-7 yrs ago.We have her to thank for most of the information we were able to get.
