I do recall the Reed surname and will check my records.
Please read about the lost records of the Second or North Society region spanning the period 1770 - 1802 in Connecticut at http://home.att.net/~CoventryCT/MissingRecords.html
where I believe our family information was lost for our Jeriel Root b. Dec 31, 1780. No knowledge of his siblings or parents. He was married to Sarah Coleman. Gershom Silliman, Jeriel Root and Joel Hicks all married sisters, Polly, Sarah, and Phebe Colman of East Coventry, near Hartford, CT and lived near each other in Stark County, OH.
