William M. Reed [1777-1829] my G5thGF may be the son of William Reed [1752-1813] & Nancy Miller and grandson of James & Margaret (Floyd) Reed of Adams Co., PA. Col. James Reed, his 5 sons and 2 sons-in-law were all veterans of the Rev. War. Their dau. Mary Reed m. James Stevenson and that family moved to Berkeley Co., VA. Their dau. Maria Stevenson, m. Samuel Boyd whose grand daughter, Isabella [Belle Boyd] became a spy for the CSA during the Civil War. The Berkeley Co. Historical Society is presently housed in the Belle Boyd house on E. Race St. in Martinsburg, WV.
My ancestor, William M. Reed may be a son of William and Nancy (Miller) Reed. Although the Reed-Floyd descent chart indicates William, m. Harriet Smith it's possible Harriet died. At age 31 my ancestor, William Reed, m. Mary Harper, in Ross Co., OH perhaps indicating that Mary was his second wife. Mary Harper was a member of the Harpers Ferry, Harper family b. in Berkeley Co. Please contact me for further information. Joe,

Mr. Williams, I am searching for members of the REED family that lived in Adams County, PA.

A Deborah REED married my ancestor John MACKLEY before 1800 and lived in Adams Co. after 1790. Both were born about 1765, she maybe in Ireland and he in Adams Co. Deborah had at least two brothers, Archibald and Frederick.
Do you show these individuals in your files??
Thank you,
Paul Sneider

Paul Sneider: I don't find a Deborah Reed in my files. You may want to contact South Central PA Genealogical Society, Box 1824, York, PA. or "Brotherton Hunters organization", whose address I can't find right now. Joseph Reed Williams, Helena, MT

I have two reasons for responding to your posting.
(1) I have been researching Gen. William Reed's line for about 15 years, hoping to find a connection between my ancestor John REED (b. 18 Feb 1776 in PA, d. ca. 1848 Lawrence CO., AL) and his family without success; (2) you also have a MILLER line, and I am looking for the ancestors of John Miller (b. ca. 1755 PA d. 1818/1819 Sandymush, Buncomb Co., NC) and Sarah CROSS, his wife, sister to Joseph CROSS who was a Pvt. in the Pennsylvania Flying Camp in 1776-77. His York County Miitia Company also lised a "John MILLER" as a member of the company, but I cannot tie this veteran into my MILLER line. As you probably know, Adams was split off from York County ca. 1800. I believe my MILLERS to be of Irish origin from Ulster & Protestants, as were the REEDS and the allied WILSON line. Will swap info with anyone on these families.
