Size 4 items
Abstract Henry Sloan Reed (1836-1907), son of Samuel Reed (1800?-1856) and Jane Fisher (1808?-1884), was married 17 January 1861 to Louisa Elizabeth Goldin (1844-1928). The family seems to have moved often, living in several southern states, including Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. The collection includes a journal belonging to Henry Sloan Reed and related notes and genealogical information about the Reed and Goldin families. The journal, 9 November 1868-8 January 1869 and 1877, includes a few brief lines for each day. During this time, Reed and his family were traveling from Alabama to Arkansas, camping and hunting along the way. Reed mentioned the weather, their hunting attempts, and descriptions of the land. There is also brief account information from 1877 which lists items and costs and two treatments for ailments. The notes were written in 2005 by Reed descendant Thomas R. Trice and include contextual information about the journal and the Reed family during the time covered by the journal. Also included is detailed genealogical information about the Reed and Goldin families--birth and death dates, census information, and obituaries--along with an extensive list of references used in compiling this information.
