Re: Samuel REED b.1763--d.Sep.1854 Wendell,Mass.
Donna,I appreciate your reply. Another Mass. researcher ( Betty-Sue Pratt)was kind enough to forward me VR for this family showing birthdates for all the siblings. And another ROGERS researcher (Ted Richard) sent me pictures of Samuel & Matilda Reed's gravestones in the Wendell, Mass. cemetery. They were in very poor condition, but still readable. It turns out Matilda died at 87 yrs.(1850)the year of your census & Samuel in Sept.1853, not 1854, at 93 yrs. I still don't know Matilda's maiden name, but that may never be known. I would like to thank all of you for your gracious sharing of info. with a researcher many miles away. Thanks again to all of you!ALL THE BEST! -- PAUL M. ROGERS -- LAWRENCE, KS.
