Verifying Information: Samuel Reed

Verification is a continual process.  As I "polish" my data, I will share with you my sources and even some questions, too. 

Birth.  The prevailing wisdom is that Samuel Reed was born in Ireland.  1750 and 1751 are dates I have seen online, especially on Ancestry.com's trees.  Does anyone have a clue as to the origin of this date?
