Ezra Reed married Lydia Light 22 Oct 1825 in Montgomery, Virginia.They apparently moved to Indiana and had the following children who were all born in Indiana:
John; Rhoda; Martha; Thomas; Henry; and James Montgomery.
I concern is over John, the 1st born. My notes show:
NAME: "Pleasantville, Iowa, Past & Present" states John Reed as a brother to James Montgomery Reed, pg 162.
BIRTH,BIRTHPLACE,DEATH,PARENTS:Ancestry.com>Family Trees>Schaffer-Conner family tree (kalql8n).Gives birth as 10 Apr 1828 in Indiana; death as 12 Feb 1896.Shows parents as Ezra Reed & Lydia "Liddy" Light.Marriage to Rachel Russell.Children listed as Robert M, Harriet L, Lydia M. and Robert.URL is http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=kalql8n&id=I6383http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=kalql8n&id=I6383
HOWEVER, when I went into Find a Grave at URL http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=reed&GSfn=john&GSbyrel=all&GSdy=1896&GSdyrel=in&GSst=17&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=36198084&df=allhttp://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=reed&GSfn=john&GSbyrel=all&GSdy=1896&GSdyrel=in&GSst=17&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=36198084&df=all, I found that his parents were listed as John Reed & Mary Ann McKinney.One of his spouses was Rachel Russell.But the siblings listed were not the same as what I have in my data base which were the names taken from the book "Pleasantville, Iowa, Past and Present".
Hoping someone can help me with this problem.
