The information I have on the Reed/Reid surname starts with Robert and Elizabeth Mashburn Reed/Reid and continues thru their son Jehu REED. Jehu married Lousia WILSON (do not have any more info on her, but would like to find out). I, too have heard that Jehu was a US Marshall and was killed. He served in Co F, 2nd TN Cal, USA, 1838-1900 according to his grave marker at Reed's Chapel in Cherokee Co. Their children (that I have) were Robert; Josephine; Mary Jane or Jane,[who married Monroe Wilcox, s/o Samuel and Mandy Morrow Wilcox or Wilcoxen]; John; Harriet; Alice and Eliza.
My son is descended from Jane and Monroe Wilcox, so I am searching for info on this line also. I will be happy to share any info I have, but warn that it is NOT confirmed, mostly other's research.

Soloman Owl was my great-great grandfather. Don't know much about Nettie Reed, but I believe I may have a copy of a photograph of the two of them. They had many children. My great grandmother Dora Owl Palmer was one of them. Several of the other children are still living in the Birdtown area of Cherokee, NC. I would really like to know if you find out more about them. I'll look at my hardcopy material and see if I have anything else that might be helpful to you.

Surnames: Owl, Eckard, Moody
I am helping my husband research his family. His maternal grandmother was Callie Madgaline Owl, who married Tom Moody. Among their many children was my mother-in-law (deceased), Ethel Applee Moody who married Frank Eckard. Are you related to Callie Owl? We have pictures of Callie and her siblings in their older years, but no-one has been able to tell us about Callie's parents, etc. Even though my husband is on the Eastern Band of Cherokee Nation tribal member scolls, they won't help him do research. Can you help?

Most of his family is still in the Catawba County, Burke County, McDowell County areas of North Carolina.

Other surnames related to our family are located at:

The Reverend DeWitt gave us most of the marriage data on Solomon Owl
Family. DeWitt was the last living brother in 1988. Resuming the
Cherokee Indian ancestry of past Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation,
Robert Youngdeer which was furnished in its entirety by Youngdeer
himself. Youngdeer as previously stated is a son of Jesse Youngdeer born
1884 and died in 1957, and Mary Jane Owl Youngdeer 1894. Theodore Owl
after Carlysle Indian School changed his name to REED. Many Owl
descendants are now spelling the surname" Owle". It gives some more of
early Owl's.

My ggg-grandfather was Robert Reed, and my gg-grandfather was Elbert, brother of Jehu. I, too, have heard of the killing of Jehu, from my grandfather, Crede Reid (now deceased). I grew up on Reid (spelling changed) land, about 500 yards from Reid's Chapel Church. The church sits on a hill above the old homesite of the Quinn family, from which came George, who I have heard killed Jehu. There are two stories I have heard, one involving Jehu's dare to trespassers, and another involving George Quinn's intent to see one of Jehu's daughters. I can't prove either, but they have both been told to me by my family members for years.
