Descendants of James W. and Lucretia Charlotte Dillard Reidof Transylvania County

Compiled by Philip Underwood-Sheppard

 

The following FTM report on the descendants of James W. and Lucretia Charlotte Dillard Reid was generated on October 29, 1999, by Philip Underwood-Sheppard. I am nowhere near having the complete record of James' descendants. I've included only three generations in an effort to leave out folks who are, or may still be, living. At the posting of this report, I have just heard from another cousin of Reid descent! Genealogy: the hobby that beats the Energizer Bunny!

A note about veracity of the records and the sources: As with all published genealogy, mistakes will creep in. I have noted in the endnotes either documents or individuals where the information was obtained. Living so far from Transylvania County makes it difficult to do original research among documents, but even documents can be "doctored," say one thing when another was happening. I've tried my best and am completely open to the correction of my data. Dates without endnotes can be attributed to the location of the burial site or my failure to document the source. If it is a cemetery record, the cemetery will be listed, usually without an endnote.

Census records:
1) Macon County, N. C. in the 1850 Census, A Snapshot in Time, compiled by McRae and Leverette Teresita Press,1997.
2) Transylvania County, North Carolina, 1870 Census, Linda Hoxit Raxter, ed., Alexandra's Family Tree House, 1998.

Individuals:

2) Shawna Green Hall (Owen descendants of the Reids)
3) Anthony "Tony" Smart (Owen descendants of the Reids)
4) Linda Hoxit Raxter (Linda found deeds and death certificates that pertained to some Reid descendants)
5) Jerry Lynn Owen (Owen descendants of the Reids - Georgia and Texas)
6) Marvin A. Grant, Jr. (the Grant connection)
7) Dawn Waston Cabe (Miller descendants of the Reids)
8) Virginia Foster "Gigi" Creel (Foster descendants of the Reids)

A final note: If this information is useful to you, e.g. helps you fill in those ever-present blanks, then by all means use the data. But, please, include your sources as a credit to my work and the work of others.
