From Brenda (Reed) Higginbotham -John H Reed was born in VA, according to census records.The actual date of his birth is unknown. The date and place of his death has been determined by the birth of his youngest son John Harvey Jr., b. 1838 in Rockbridge, VA; and the birth of Mary and Thomas Green's oldest child, b. 1841 in Illinois. John Harvey Reed's widow (Mary) remarried (Thomas Green) around 1840 in Rockbridge, VA. Mary appears on the 1850 Illinois Census with her new husband and four of their children and the 7 children of John H Reed, Sr.. This record shows that John Harvey Jr. was born 1838 in VA, Mary (widowed wife of John Harvey Sr.) and her husband Thomas Green had a child born 1841 in Illinois.
