Hi, I am interested in connecting with those around the world with ancestors decending from the surname REED from Stithians in Cornwall. My GGG Grandparents where buried in St Day. GGG Grandfather Joseph 1794 was born in Stithians to Nicholas Reed and Catherine Oppy. I have made contact in Australia with many decendants so I am hoping for an overseas decendant.

many thanks Susan .

Hello everyone! My great-great grandfather is Luman Hauley Reed. His father left for the California Gold Rush, and was murdered my the time he got to Auraria, Kansas Territory (now Denver, Colorado). Luman married twice: once to Isabella Beecroft, and the other (from which marriage I descend) to Margaret Joanna McPherson. Looking forward to learning if any of are lines are common!

My great-great-great Grandmother was Hannah Tucker Reed. She was born in Lower Eversham, New Jersey in 1821 and died in Idaho in 1904. She was married to James Graham (1804 - 1857) in 1849. James was born in Ireland. I haven't done much research on this line as of yet. I do however have a picture of Hannah (many are surprised that I do) given to my grandfather from a 3rd cousin of his. She (Hannah) was a midwife who immigrated to Utah from California on the Mormon Trail in 1848 in the Ebenezer Brown Company. In 1846 she went on a voyage from NY to California on the infamous Brooklyn (considered to be the longest sea voyage of any religious outcasts) with her son John Clark Reed Jamison (Hannah is believed to be a widow at the point of one Alexander Jamison), her sister Christiana Rachel Reed, mother Christianna Rachel Reed (Gregory), and brother John Haines Reed.

Hello, Our Reeds were born, Maidstone, Kent, Berdmondrey, London and Bethnal Green Middlesex.
We have little information on them. Hannah came to Australia in 1858 and married in Hobart in 1862 to my husbands 2nd great grandfather Henry Payne.

Hello everyone. My Reed line doesn't go back very far as I have a brickwall. My husband's great grandmother was Mary Eva Reed b. 10/19/1887 Cass Co., TX d. 11/25/1974 Walker Co., TX. She married James Robert Haltom. Mary's parents were J.R. Reed (my brick wall) b. GA. and Susan "Susie" A. McCain b. 1/30/1869 Miss. d. 9/19/1932 Harris Co., TX. I have not figured out what the J.R. stands for, what year he was born, or his parents' names. Any help would be appreciated.

My Reeds come from Loudoun County Virginia (hope to go back further) in the 1700s - they moved to Belmont and Noble Counties Ohio. Hope to connect with other Reeds from this line.

hello! My Reed ancestors are from Sussex, England. Hope I am able to connect in the future with others from the same area!
