About Our Family Research

I have traced the Read line to John Read who purchased land in Cecil Co. MD as early as 1726. John died in 1793 in MD. He reportedly came from Ireland. I have no proof of this. This is my major interest.

I am working hard to push back the Gray and allied lines in Scotland. I am pretty firm with a John Gray (1755 married to a Jean Maver (1748)I want real bad to find my Jacob Kirkman (abt 1800) who married Grace McFarlane (abt 1800) they married in 1822 Perth, Ontario, Canada.

I have attended one Read/Reed reunion in Clearfield PA June 2001 Descendents of Alexander Read (1752) and Jemima Alexander (1756).
