Surnames: REID, REED, SNODGRASS
I am a descendant of one "John Reid", who according to family tradition received a grant of land in Berkeley Co. from Lord Fairfax around 1740. His son (I believe Grandson) James Reid b. 23 May, 1785 near Martinsburg, sold the estate in 1810 and moved to Urbana in Champaign Co. Ohio.
I have found record of two John Reid/Reed's in Berkeley Co. in the 1700's, one whom I have ruled out since I have record of his children, the other I believe to be too old to be James' father. James named his eldest son Robert SNODGRASS Reid. I have found marriage records of Berkeley Co. showing A William Wallace Reid (Son of John, of Berk. Co.) marrying Katherine SNODGRASS on 12 Feb., 1782.
I believe that James may actually be the son of William and Katherine and grandson of John? Does anyone have any information on any of these people that might help me?
Any assistance would be appreciated. MDRF
