Stanmore Judson Reed & Rachel Joanna Axson

Stanmore Judson Reed & Rachel Joanna Axson about 1890
Stanmore Judson Reed was a son of James William Reed (1827-1901) and Anna Rebecca Tyler (1828-1882).  He was born on 6 Sep 1862 and died on 13 Apr 1933, living all his life in Orangeburg County, SC.

In 1879, Stanmore married Rachel Joanna Axson, who was born 2 Feb 1859, a daughter of Robert Edward Axson (1829-1869) and Mary Ann Mack (1829-1880).  Stanmore and Joanna had seven children.  She died 7 Jul 1899.

In 1890, Stanmore married Mary Rebecca Pou (12 Dec 1877 - 2 Mar 1958).  They had at least nine children that I have been able to verify.

Stanmore and Mary are buried at Riverside Cemetery in North, SC.

Rachel Joanna Axson Reed is buried at Bull Swamp Baptist Church in North, SC.

I want to express my appreciation for sharing the photos of Stanmore and Joanna to Jane Morgan Rowell, a 4-great granddaughter of Samuel and Mary Clark Reed.  Stanmore was brother to her great-grandfather Michael Joshua Reed.  Her line:

Many thanks, too, go to Jane's daughter Stephanie Rowell Murray for her help in the writing of this post.  Stephanie, your willingness to share is what this genealogy business is all about as far as I'm concerned!  Thank you so much!
