Elizabeth Reid Steere

I now live in Los Angeles, but I was born in Australia. An uncle who is interested in genealogy traced back our family to Peter Reid, who was born in Rosscommon, Ireland in 1794. He later moved to Sheffield, England where he met and married Anne Crook. They emigrated to Australia in 1842 and went on to found what is now an extensive branch of the family. I'm a sixth generation Australian Reid, being the first daughter of the fifth son of the third son of the second son of the seventh son of Peter and Anne Reid.

Reid Ellis has such an interesting bookmarks page that even though his first name is Reid, not his last name, he deserves a link. Besides, he has links to Brian's page and this page in his links page :-)

Stan Reid, Texas Association of Counties. (512) 478-8753   |

I am currently trying to construct a picture of my family tree. I have made it back as far as a William Reid born in North or South Carolina in around 1770 (don't know much more about him). The family migrated to Texas through Alabama arriving in Texas around the time of the American Civil War. As far as I can tell, we've been in this state for about four generations (maybe 5).

Steven Reid

I am Steven Reid from Atlanta, Georgia. Please forward any researchers of same to me; email

Bob Reid

I'm a not-very-successful Reid researcher. My great-great-grandfather Andrew Reid was born 20 September 1791 in Iredell County, NC. As a boy, his father, John, moved the family to what is now Anderson County, SC. John;s father said to have been named Hugh. I have found a Hugh Reid on the Rowan County, NC taxrolls from 1762 but no link has been established. Nor do I know the names of any of Andrew's siblings. Andrew married Mary Hamilton...named his sons John, James and Robert.

David S. Reid

My name is David S. Reid, of South Yarmouth, MA. I am searching for information on my Reid Ancestors. We know little about them, because my grandfather was orphaned shortly after birth. He was William Reid (28 April 1903 - April 1975), born in Patterson, New Jersey to John Reid and Jane (Richardson) Reid. Both Jane and John are believed to have immigrated to the US around the late 1890's. William had siblings: James, Sarah and Hannah. He married Ada Florence Baker (1907 - 1968) of Lebenon, NY . If you are able to post this information, I would like to hear from anyone who may have any connection.

Glenn Reid [not the Glenn Reid listed elsewhere on these pages]

My name is Glenn Reid, and I am told that I descend from the Scottish Reids. My line goes back through LeRoy to Bruce to William to Phillip. I am originally from the eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, and am stuck in my line in Washington County Maryland in the late 1800s. In researching Scottish names I was told that LeRoy means the king or leader and that Glenn means son of the leader. Some of our family names are Russle, Earl, Melvin, Gladis, Dorethy, Louise, and Thelma. Drop me a note.

Monique Jacques 

Hello, my name is Monique Jacques. i am interested in getting some information on my family history. My mother's name is Eileen Reid, she was born in Sunnyside, Newfoundland, Canada. Her father was Douglas Reid Sr. There are quite a few Reids in Newfoundland. I was told that our clan could be under either Robertson or Murray from Scotland. i did try some field-work at the Newfoundland Archives, but unfortunately the names are simply listed according to birth in the United & Anglican church lists, i could not find referrences to parents & their date of births. I am a History major and therefore quite familiar with hours in research. But in this instance i just don't know where would be a good place to begin. If you could give me some advice on this i would be grateful. thank you.

Keeley Roberts 

I am related to the Reids of Prestwick and Campbelton Scotland. My great-great grandfather Allan came to the States and married Marion Hamilton Dickson. I can trace my Reid ancestry back to the marriage of Robert Reid to Lady Margaret Boyd in 1650.


I have discovered that the David Reid for whom I was seeking information was a Major General in the War of 1812. There was a Thomas Reid who came from Ireland to North Carolina. He is the one I am searching for information on. There is a great deal of confusion in this line apparently. I am beginning to believe that it is because there is a Thomas David Reid who is the oldest link that I can find among my Reid ancestors. He was born in 1767 and married Mary Ramsey, the daughter of Sarah Elizabeth (Sallie) Birdsong and Col. John Ramsey. I have among the papers of my ancestors a letter from William Hume Reid to my great grandmother, Mary Greer Reid Ward. He was her brother. He writes: "You remember old Captain Fuller, who lived in Belton, don't you? Well, he often talked with me about Father's family and admired them very much. He originally told me the story of how General Davis Reid and Thomas Reid, his son, financed Sam Houston and his soldiers from the various states who came to Texas for the Revolution. . . One of those two men said Houston and his friends afterwards repaid Grandfather, Thomas Reid, and his father, David Reid, by giving them a number of leagues of land in Texas . . ."


GG Grandfather was Henry Levi O'Reid came to Galveston Texas met and married Nanch Katherine Miley of LA. had 2 daughters who died whose names I don't know and 7 sons, Lamen, Lee, Laurence, Lyle, Levi Andrew ( my great grandfather), Louis, and Licket.

My great grandfather married had 6 children with first wife whose name i don't know they were Jim, Ruthie, Preston, Levi "Grady" (my grandfather ) Dudely, and Douglas then 13 children with 2nd wife Garland, Shirley, Geri, Mildred, Mary Kate, Laverne, Wayne, Nancy and thats all the names I have. My Grandfather Grady had 3 children Billy Don (my dad) Lousie, and Noble. They were all in various places in Texas, New Mexico and Finally Oregon. If anyone can be of help here i would appreciate it.

Donald Melville Reid

I'm interested in tracing my REID ancestry.

My gfather, John Alexander Reid, was born somewhere in Ontario, c. 1870-1880. He had, I believe, 2 or 3 brothers. Have yet to learn their names, altho I understand at least one of them, in addition to my gfather, moved to southern Alberta. My gfather, was in the RNWMP at Ft. Macleod, until about 1903. He then worked for the Federal Land Titles office in Lethbridge, before eventually moving to Regina, SK, where he died.

He had 3 sons, Robert John REID (lived and died in Regina), Harold REID (have to look up his middle name) (lived in Broadview, SK, most of his life), had 3 children, Dorothy, Robert & Joyce; and my father, Alexander Melville Reid (lived in Moose Jaw, SK, Yorkton, SK, and Calgary, AB, where he died), had one child.

If you think we may be connected, somehow, would like to hear from you. I moved from Calgary to California in 1954. Donald Melville REID, Walnut Creek, CA. [6/1999]

Janice Reid

I am seeking help with my Reid family who are believed to have migrated from SC to AL by 1828. My grandfather was Amos Reid, b. 1828 AL. His siblings were Elly, Susan, and Abraham. Amos was in Jasper Co., MS in 1850 living with his mother named Louisa, b. 1800 SC, and siblings. I am seeking the name of his father. There is a chance that his father was named William, but I can not prove this. Amos married Parthenia Elkins, b. 1836 GA, and they migrated to Leon Co., TX by 1860 and then went back to MS by 1861. Amos and Parthenia's children were: William Andrew, Elizabeth L., Susan A., Benjamin F. and John W. [6/1999]

Robert I. Reid

My grandfather was Robert I. Reid. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. He would be approximately 98 years old if he were still alive. We have reason to believe he may have had a son with the same name. He would be around 70 years of age. We have no other information. [8/1999]

Reid Aarskog

It`s very interesting for me to see that there are so many people that have my first name as their family name. Here in Norway it`s very few people with Reid as their first or last name, so i kind of hoped that if some one else with Reid as first name read this, they could send me a mail . It would also be fun, if someone else with this fantastic name sent me a mail. According to the latest updates from The Norwegian Bureau of Statistics there are 31 people with Reid as their family name. There are also 63 with Reid as their first name, and 23 of them has it as their only first name. And since I'm one of the 23 in a country with 4.500.000 citizens, i feel a little special. That's all for now. [9/1999]

I don't know very much about the Reid lineage due to early divorce and subsequent estrangement from my father's family. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might provide a few branches for my family tree. [12/1999].

Charles Daniel Reid

My name is Charles Daniel Reid. I live in Prattville, Alabama.I am trying to find any information I can on my family.My father's name was William Charles Reid. He was born in the early thirties in east central Michigan and had 4 brothers; Alfred, Melvin, David (or Daniel), and Gerald.Their Father's name (my grandfather) was James A. Reid. James A. Reid's father's name was Hugh Reid (my great-grandfather). Hugh Reid's father's name was James Reid (my great-great grandfather). James Reid's father's name was also named Hugh (my great-great-great grandfather). I was told he came from Scotland. The only info I have on the last Hugh name which might be a possibility is a copy of the 1870 census showing a Hugh Reid living in Almont, which is in Lapeer county, Michigan.He was 58 at the time and the census showed his birthplace as Scotland. Mary Reid lived with him (possibly his wife). She was 62. Two John Reids lived with him; one was 24 (possibly a son), one was 63 (possibly a brother). There is no mention of a James, but he may have already moved out. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. [5/2005]

Cristina Martinez

I am not a Reid but I am doing research on the Reid family, particularly in Fairfax, VA, where a small private cemetery is located at the Turner Fairbanks Highway Research Center. Reids that are buried there are Richard S.(1801-1871), Elizabeth (1819-1903), Martha R. (1842-1902), James (1847-1921), Mary Alice (1851-1938), Lawrence M. (1887-1953) and Ethel (1889-1964). I think the are also connected to the Reids of Bellvue Forest (George who was married to Mary Ellen Simmons and their son Horatio) which isn't too far south of the cemetery. I am doing this research in order to try to apply to make the cemetery an official historical site. Any information would be appreciated. [6/2005]

Elizabeth Reid

I'd like to be added to the list of Reids, here are my details:

My family came from Forfar, Scotland in the early 1900's and settled in New South Wales, Australia. My father was Alfred Reid, his father was James Reid whole father was Alfred Reid. I have traced my Reid family back to the late 1700's. Elizabeth Reid, Brisbane, Australia. [6/2005]
