Hi Michael, although I am not a Reiter descendant my Reeb family does have some descendants who are Reiters. I work to compile as many of the descendants of a particular REEB ancestor who lived during the late 1500s and early 1600s in what was then known as the Countdom of Nassau-Saarwerden but is now in the western most portion of the department of Bas-Rhin, France (Alsace area). The Reiters I speak of initially settled in the Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio area and I have found a few instances where they moved to other areas of the country. I have found at least one instance of a Reiter male who went from Ohio to Washington state and possibly Oregon. However, before I can be of much help I would need to know information as to which time period your Reiter was and exactly which county and state he was in etc. Can you provide a few more details?
