  1. First of all, thank you, Marilyn, for starting this blog.

    Like my 5th cousin Marilyn, my paternal line reaches back to Sam & Mary. That Marilyn & I share the same last (maiden) name after all these generations makes it seem a much closer relationship.

    Here goes:

    Samuel Reed & Mary Clark
    >Hugh Reed & Jane McSpeddon
    >>Samuel Reed & Matilda Willis
    >>>Tullie Washington Reed & Katie Thompson
    >>>>Laurie Tully Reed & Lula Mae Forehand
    >>>>>Laurie Tully Reed, Jr., & Frances Scott Joyner
    >>>>>>Me (Josephine Wiley Reed)

  2. Josie, thank you for commenting! I agree about our connection. Never underestimate the power of a Reed girl!

    How appropriate you should be the first to comment. You're the first contact I made regarding my Reed branch. In fact, you're the one who led me to Samuel & Mary! I'll always be grateful.

  8. I learned of your blog from Josie Reed. I have found it very interesting and helpful.
    My line is:
    Samuel Reed and Mary Clark
    Hugh Reed and Jane McSpeddon
    Samuel Reed and Matilda Willis
    Cyrena Kesiah Reed and William Capers Milhous
    John Henry Eliott Milhous and Mary Ann Perry
    Julia Norris Milhous and Walter Stewart Peterson
    Mary Elizabeth Peterson and Olin Davis DuRant
    Susan DuRant McElreath
    Most of my data has been handed down by g-grandmother, Mary Ann Perry Milhous, and my grandmother, Julia Norris Milhous Peterson.
    Jane McSpeddon was Jane McFadden in their records. I have corrected it. I hope to verify my other data through the blog. I will be happy to share any information and pictures that I have. Will Miller and I are related through the Milhous line. Appreciate your great blog. Susan DuRant McElreath

  14. Dear "Cuz" Marilyn, My sister(Kay Ellen Thomas Hoyle) snd I(Dorothy Virginia Thomas Boucher) are the two daughters of Frederick Bendal Thomas and Lilah Kathryn Reed Thomas. My mother was Elizabeth Reed Hudlow's sister. There were 4 girls and 1 boy born to my grandfather and grandmother. My grandfather's name was Norman McCloud Reed, Sr. My nickname that Pappy(my grandfather) gave me is "Dixie". But there are 2 stories as to why, lol. There is so much to absorb here, I can't believe it. We are thrilled to have found both Josie and you. Thanks for all your effort. I never knew I was Irish!!!! I thought I was just a "southern" girl at heart. Dixie Boucher

  19. Hi! I was wondering if the Hartzog/Reed/Waters cemetery is easily accessible or not. We'll be in SC visiting relatives, and I was thinking about making a detour to see my ancestors!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi, Garrett. This cemetery is not accessible due to the fact that it is on private land behind a locked gate. Please contact me at samuelreedfamilyATgmailDOTcom for further information. Also, I would love to know who your ancestors are and when you will be in SC. Maybe we could meet up!
