Notes for Andrew Reed
Linkage as a son of Johnathan Reed and his first wife is speculative, based on three facts: First, that Andrew and Catherine’s daughter Alice was listed in the 1880 census as a sister-in-law of Anderson Alfrey, whose wife was Ellen Reed, daughter of Johnathan Reed and his second wife Zerilda Shropshire. Alice was not really Ellen’s sister, but there was surely some close relationship. Second, that Andrew and Catherine were living next door to Johnathan and Zerilda in the 1870 census. Third, that in 1850 Andrew was living (as a resident farm hand) with Thomas Donathan, who provided surety on the marriage bond for Johnathan and Zerilda.
