My research on Nicolas Reel, who was born 03 November 1821 in Fredericktown, Frederick county, Maryland and married Sarah Ann Pampell (1830-1896)there on 04 October 1849. They left Maryland, probably in 1853 and moved to Pike county, Illinois before my great grandfather, Lewis was born 06 March 1854 there. Sometime between the birth of their last two children they came to Middletown, Montgomery county, Missouri. Nicolas died there 23 May 1906 and was buried in Fairmont Cemetery.
