More Probate Records Found

Since the last post post, I've been digging and found 18 more probate records.  Here they are in alphabetical order.  I have shown the "naked links" instead of embedding them for a couple of reasons.  First, it's much easier for me.  Second, in case clicking on the link does not work, you can cut and paste the shown link into your browser. 

Some of these folks are not very closely tied to our Reeds, but they are all on my master tree.  This seems to me to be the best place to share them with all sides of my family.  If you have any questions about any of them, please feel free to contact me. 

If you find any links I haven't listed, please share them with us!

  1. Who is Moses Foster? Its just an interesting name, so I am curious.

  2. Glad you asked! He's one of the folks listed here who aren't directly related to the Reeds. He is a multi-great grandfather of some dear cousins on my mother's side of the family.
