Thank you, John for this information. I am interested in Robert Reed, brother of Richard Reed who was born 1763 in Baltimore MD according to his Rev War papers.
I hope this is the right one.
My Robert Reed also served in the Rev War although I can't make out much of the hand-written information. He served with his brother Richard against the Tories and the Cherokees and then was in the Battle of Eutau, SC. I don't know who his wife was but his children were Elizabeth born abt 1793 NC, James W. born 1785, George born 1796, Calvin, and Robert.
Elizabeth Reed married Champion Langford in 1812 in Ashville, NC. They moved to St Clair Co AL.
Anything you have on Robert and his ancestors would be greatly appreciated.
