My husband's grandfather came to Akron, Ohio from Arkansas. The Posting you have about Johnson Co. interests me, however, I can not find a reference to Cross in it.

Please respond.

Surnames: REED
In your Baxter County, AR query, and several AR counties, you provide the same long query. Under the list of surnames you include the surname REED. However, there are no REEDs in your query. Just wanted to let you know that this same query appears over a dozen times when a person searches for the surname REED. If it doesn't appear in your query, you shouldn't list it.

Just thought I would ask you...are you looking for REEDs in Baxter County, AR or simply making an observation? I am researching the REED name in Baxter County and always looking for a link. My family in this area consists of DOVER and REED.

I have Lots and Lots of surnames in Benton Co. and Hickory Co. Missour, and other counties in the surrounding areas, but I have one surname I cannot find much information on: REED.

I have two reeds that I am searching for:
1) Lydia Josephine REED Born 24 July 1850/51, OHIO
died 27 March 1917 and buried at Wann Cemetery, Wann , Nowata Co, Oklahoma who married Elijah George BALDWIN born 25 April 1848/49 OHIO, died 5 Nov 1917 and is buried at Wann Cemetery, Wann, Nowata Co. OKlahoma. They were married in Benton Co. Missouri 13/14 Aug 1868. They are my maternal Grandmother Lydia Rebecca BALDWIN's grandparents.
2) Hattie BALDWIN(William BALDWIN's sister) born 1861 IOWA married( 23 July 1876 Benton Co. Missouri) William A. REED, born April 1848, OHIO.
I have lots of information on these family but nothing about these two REED's. Do you have any information about them????

Surnames: Reed, Dover
My name is Robert Moore. I am descended from James Reed and Neoma (Oma) Dover through their son Joel Franklin Reed. I saw your posting and wanted to see what info that you had. I have been unable to find marriage info. I have Joel's death certificate which says that James Reed was born in Doe Run, St. Francois, MO. It says that Neoma was born in Licking, MO. In the 1870 census, they are listed in Arkansas, Marion, Rapps Barren, He is listed as James Read with wife Oma Read.

In the 1850 census, there is a Lillaoma (probably Neoma) Dover listed in Ripley Co., MO. She is 7 and born in ARK. Family lore is that Oma was native american. Joel Franklin Reed was born 26 Apr. 1866 in Illinois and died 14 Dec. 1933 in Esther, St. Francois, MO. Here is a link to his death certificate. Copy and paste it to make it work.

In the 1900 census for Madison, St. Francois, MO, Joel is listed as Reed, Joel Head, White, Male, April 1866, 34, Married, 3 years, born in Illinois, father born MO, mother born AK, Farmer, rented, Educated.

Thanks in advance. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
