Reed and Looman Families
I am looking for Charles Luman who wrote the following message on ancesty.com message board 4 March 2002 in responce to my message relating to Rebecca Lewman-William Reed.
"Hi there I Have a pretty good database on Lewman / Loo-man / Lumans . . . "
Rebecca Looman m. William Brotherton Reed in Butler Co., OH 10 March 1810.William Brotherton Reed d. 1816 in Butler Co., OH. William Luman (WL) was appointed Administrator of the Estate of William Brotherton Reed (WBR). William Luman d. and William Reed (WR) of Fayette Co. (WR) my ancestor, a cousin of (WBR). Rebecca Looman Reed hired Lawyer Pat Vorhis to assist. (WR) d. 1829 before the (WBR)estate was resolved. In the meantime the heirs of William Luman were pressing Mr. Voris to resolve the (WBR) estate which was accomplished in 1832 for $140.
The heirs of William Luman included were identified as Jesse Luman, Sarah Norris widow of George, Moses Luman, Hannah Falady, widow of Henry & Polly, widow of Joel.Peterson.
By 1866 descendants of William Reed: William Harper Reed and his wife Nancy Faris Ellis Reed along with William Henry Reed and wife, Sarah Ann Pinkney and children had settled in Chetopa, Labette Co., KS where Edward Looman Reed s/o William Henry & Sarah Ann was b. in 1872.
We assume that anothe Luman who setled in Labette Co., was probably related to the Luman branch of the Luman family.
If Charles is still alive I would like to correspond with him. Thanks,
p.s. The family of William Brotherton Reed was from Lancaster Co. PA
