I have no information on a William Reed. This may be a different family line from mine. I need more information to be sure.
My Reed family came to Cole Co., MO, about 1820. This was Samuel T. Reed (c 1794 to c 1865), father, who came from KY; where in KY I don't know. He married Frances Patterson in 1825 in Cole Co. He may have been married before, heresay.
My ancestor is his son Samuel T. Reed (1836-1914) in Moniteau Co., MO.
If you are interested in these families I do have more information and will be happy to share.
I hope this helps as the Reeds are a difficult family to find and sort out because there are other Reed families in the area.
