Excerpt from "History and Genealogical Record of the REIDS, EELL'S, THOMPSON'S and Their Related Families of The United States of America" By WARREN E. REID. LtCol USAF (Retd), Everett, PA 15537, May 1998
123 Zenas Pelton Reid, was born according to some documents 28 Aug 1834, (but as engraved on his tombstone 1836), Espyville, Crawford County, Pa. Zenas married Emma Monroe Taylor 24 Aug 1866, who alledgedly was a descendant of Pocahontas. Emma born in 1846, died 12 Feb 1925, while Zenas died 19 Oct 1893. Prior to his death Zenas lived with his family near Randolph, IA. Both are burled in Row 9 the Tabor (Fremont County), IA., Cemetery, along with two children Frankie and Willie E. Reed, both having died in infancy. Although Zenas, Emma, Frankie and Willie E. are buried within a few feet of the graves of his parents, William and Sarah Reid, the grave stones of each member of Zenas's family, spells the family name as Reed. 100/ 101
