Hello, Tom Goldrup - It's been a long time since we corresponded. Looks like you are still looking for answers. I wish I could tell you the name of Mary Reed's parents, but I can't. I believe your Mary was possibly a niece of Andrew Reed and Elizabeth Bozorth,as their daughter Mary was wed to someone else.
You are right about the interaction among the Bozarth, England and Reed families. When you throw the Hargis family into the mix,it becomes very interesting.Marriage records in Nelson Co, VA / KY named Andrew Reed as the father of Hannah, Abigail & Elizabeth. Polly was named as his dau in Christian Co. The 1810 Census of Christian Co, KY shows Andrew & Elizabeth with 10 children. (01211-11401) The only girl named as "d/o Andrew" who was still at home was Polly, so the other three girls were already gone by the 1810 census. There are still two daughters I have not been able to identify. I do not know the exact number of children Andrew and Elizabeth had, but I believe the following are probably correct:
1. Hannah: b. ca 1773; d. by 1810 c/r; m. 14 Sep 1790, Nelson Co to William Miller, s/o Christopher, David Bozorth witnessed bond; 2. Abigail: b. 30 Aug 1775; adm. 3 Oct 1838, Christian Co; m. 30 Oct 1792, Nelson Co to Isaac Hargis; bond, Andrew Reed. 3. James: b. (1770-80) est ca 1777; m. Susanna Cox 29 Aug 1799, Nelson Co, KY; 4. William: (1770-80) ca 1779; m/1. Polly Dunn(ifer) 17 May 1807; m/2. Polly Sloan, 18 Jan 1815; 5. Dau: (1765-84); 6. Elizabeth: b. (ca 1783) m. Wm. C. Hargis 21 Jan 1799; 7. Dau: (1784-94); 8. Malinda: b. ca 1788, m. Isaac Dopsin Hargis, 4 Apr 1812; 9. Caleb: b. 1790, m. coz Hannah Reed; 10. Matilda: b. 1892, m. James Means 14 Jul 1807; 11. Hiram: ca 1794; 12 Polly: b. 1796, m. James McDaniel 20 Nov 1813; 13. David: b. ca 1798.
If you can made additions and/or corrections, please let me know. Thanks!!!
