Notes for Amaziah Reed: The following is from notes by Diane Reed Klaiber: Moved to Weld, ME and became a minister of the Baptist Church.
In a separate search we found a monograph titled "Early Settlers of Weld", ME, by E. J. Foster, that describes an Amaziah Reed as "a minister of the Baptist Church", born N. Yarmouth, settling in Weld, 1804, with his wife Jedidah Bumpus, and family. This Amaziah Reed proceeds to have 4 children with Jedidah, who is already 48 in 1804, naming the first daughter "Rhoda". In 1807, a son Bartholomew, then 22 years old, comes from Freeport, ME to settle in Weld, and marries Sylvia Jackson, daughter of Lemuel Jackson, another Baptist minister who always travels in the company of the Reeds. Later, in 1812, David Reed, brother of Bart, immigrates from Yarmouth to Weld.
The circumstantial evidence indicates that there is only one Amaziah Reed, of N. Yarmouth, who first married Rhoda Delano and produced several children, among them Bartholomew and David, then later has a second wife, Jedidah Bumpus and generates another family. Rhoda may have died in the wilderness without a record of any kind.
My husband and I are trying to find evidence to prove this conjecture. If we are right, then I am descended from the Salem Reeds, and your book will be of great interest to me.
The Weld Reeds and Jacksons all immigrated to Ohio, many in 1818, then most moved to Iowa in 1836, settling near Mason City.
