My great grandfather's name was Alfred Jackson Reed. He was born in Indiana about 1865. I do not know where or who his parents were. I do not know any of the names of any siblings. On census records I have seen on Alfred Jackson (sometimes he went by Alfred and sometimes he went by Jackson) he lists his parents' birth place as Indiana. By the 1880 census Alfred Jackson was a farm hand in the Missouri Bootheel--Dunklin County, Missouri. He married his second wife by 1890. Her name was Viola Caroline Gibbs (maiden) Duke (first husband's name). He stayed in the Missouri Bootheel until his death in the 1940s. He has been a tough one as far as locating earlier family members.
