I am interested in collaborating with researchers who are looking at Sarah and Jacob Reed who first appear in this area about 1785 with the purchase of some property. Jacob appears on the 1790, 1800 and 1810 census and disappears shortly after that with an 1813 property transfer that was recorded in 1822.
Jacob and Sarah appear to have had the following children:
Jacob Reed, Jr. who moved to Indiana and then Illinois.
George, Archibald and Enoch Reed who moved to Indiana.
Sally Reed White who is the mother of Jacob Pinckney Reed of Anderson SC.
Francine Reed Broyles, the wife of Aaron Broyles of Anderson SC.
Possibly Holly Ann Reed Harper wife of Asa Harper.
Possibly a John H. Reed.
Possibly a Joseph Reed.
He appears to be associated with an Oldham family from Loudoun County, Virginia, particularly George Oldham.
Sarah's maiden name is reportedly Kemp. Her sister Millicent married Jacob's brother John who died in about 1781, apparently killed by the Tories.
Another sister of Sarah's Elizabeth married Rueben Brock.
They appear to have a brother Hardin Kemp.
I believe he may be related to a Nathaniel Reed and a William Reed who lived near him in 1790. This Nathaniel Reed may be the one that some researchers have connected to Rebecca Isaacs.
Jacob may be from SC, Scotland or more likely, in my opinion, PA by way of NC.
My line is Jack Nathan Reed, Edwin Lee Reed, Charles Harden Reed, John Thomas Reed, Harden/Hardin Reed, Jacob Reed, Jr. and Jacob Reed, Sr.
This Sarah Reed appears to have sold some property while living in Anderson in 1842.
If my information links into anyone’s line please let me know and I'll share what I have.
Also, a lot of researchers try to attach this Jacob to Sarah Butler in Maine. She married a different Jacob and the information is readily apparent when you read the petitions she filed for both Jacob and her second husband, Samuel Holden's Revolutionary War service.
