Can anyone verify this or add anything?
Thank You,


I have a Stephen REED,b:5/10/1811 in Kirby,or Concord,VT,d:7/01/1854...Note:(also another DOB listed for Stephen as 7/12/1805)..........(could this be a cousin or a brother that died young ?)

Stephen is said to have married a Polly Chickering in VT, but have not found her mentioned anywhere, in any census,etc...

I have only found a Polly Hutchinson,b: 3/12/1808 in Concord,VT. d: 7/01/1854 in Concord,VT, m: a Stephen REED....Note: DOD is same for Stephen and this Polly Chickering....????

Can anyone recognize these people?...Maybe there was a "Polly" that married both a "Hutchinson" and then a "Reed".......

It is also possiable there is one big name mix up.....

Children for the Stephen REED and "POLLY (?)" I am looking for are:
Ruth B. REED,b:4/07/1835 in W. Concord,VT.. and Stephen H. REED,b:10/07/1836 in W. Concord,VT.m: Emily I (?).

[UPDATE:] (information taken from grave stones).
(St Johnsbury, Concord, and Kirby,VT. are all close to each other).

[NOTE:] A visit to Grove Cemetery, St Johnsbury, VT in 2006 we found [Steven REED, d: July 1, 1854 at age 44y-1m-19d], buried with 2 wives named ["Polly" L. wife of Steven REED, d: July 25, 1833 at age 26y-1m-25d]... and... ["Polly" H. wife of Steven REED, d:Feb 29, 1872 at age 64y-11m-?d].

They are buried with Steven REED's parents Nathaniel and Susan (Swett) REED..and..Ruth R. REED, dau of Steven and 'Polly" REED..... Ruth R.REED d:July 9, 1852 at age 17y-4m ......I have a birth date for Ruth R. REED as 4/07/1835, though not confirmed. Ruth must be from 2nd marriage since 1st wife "Polly L. died 1833.

Steven's 1st wife "Polly L. d: July 25, 1833. (was this Polly Chickering?)(They are said to have had one daughter? possiably named Adelaide).
Steven m: 2nd wife "Polly H. " after 1833.
Steven d: July 1, 1854.
Steven's 2nd wife "Polly H." d: Feb 29, 1872.
Steven had a son also called Steven, [Stephen H. REED,b:10/07/1836 in W. Concord,VT.m: Emily I. (last name unknown?).

Can anyone verify this or add anything?
