Hello, Brian Reed,
I have no absolute proof that Caleb was the s/o Andrew Reed and Elizabeth Bozorth. I felt that he was since he was the surety for the marriage of Andrew and Elizabeth's daughter Malinda to Issac Dopsin Hargis, s/o William Hargis and (?Martha) Dopsin, ca 4 Apr 1812 (date of licence) in Christian Co, KY. The Andrew Reed family, the Jonathan Bozarth / Bozorth family and the members of the Hargis family moved to Howard Co, MO about 1819.
I have now discovered that Caleb Reed was also surety for the marriage of an Andrew Reed and Ibby Sherlock on 27 Feb 1815 in Christian Co, KY. I do not know who this Andrew Reed is, unless he was another son of Andrew and Elizabeth (Bozarth) Reed or is maybe connected to the following 1810 census records in Christian County for a Daniel Reed, a John Read and a John Read, Jr. as follows:
1810 CENSUS - CHRISTIAN COUNTY, KENTUCKY
Reed, Andrew - page 82-12 - 01211 - 11401 - this is Andrew Reed and Elizabeth Bozorth
Reed, Daniel - page 76-03 - 00101 - 00001
Read, John - page 82-16 - 02201 . 01111
Read, John, Jr - page 82-17 - 00100 - 01000
I think that John Read, Sr was probably the father of Daniel Reed and John Read, Jr. I do not know if there is a connectiion between John Read, Sr. and Andrew Reed though. I have never been able to discover who Andrew's parents were. I've done a lot of research on the Bozorth / Hargis / Reed connections from Virginia (Frederick, Monongalia, Hampshire Counties) to Kentucky (Nelson, Hardin, Christian Counties) and on into Howard Co, MO. I have about 50 pages of material on the known descendants of Andrew and Elizabeth, but I do not have anything on your Caleb. I would be very interested in learning more about him and his descendants. I do not even know who he married.
If you are interested in further information on Andrew and Elizabeth (Bozorth) Reed, please let me know.
