Bruce/Reed/O'Donnells of Central Ohio and Cincinnati Updated March 25, 2008
About Our Family Research
This is about 10 generations of my family including the BRUCE family going back to Scotland, and coming to XENIA, OH where they met up with the REED family. The O'DONNELL family is still lacking for a connection past paternal grandfather (William Joseph). He died in Cincinnati, and was divorced from my grandmother in the early 1940's. I am looking for more information about him. I am also looking for information about the JORDAN/KEEL family in rural Mississippi. Those are my paternal grandmother's people, whom I never met.
The BRUCE information was collected by Frances Bruce Todd of Arizona, who has now passed on, and my beloved gUncle Dick Bruce, who has created his own tree, in San Deigo. My Grandmother Mary E. Bruce Reed also contributed to, but was the keeper of all this information until a new generation decided to come looking for it.
There are some contradictions and questionable relationships/dates/etc., but I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have putting it together.
