She was born August 02, 1891 in Grenada, Mississippi, and died about 1988 in Shallowater, Lubbock County, Texas.
Notes for EDWIN BURLESON REED:
Edwin Burleson lived in Irene, Hill County, until the fields played out and with so many of the other Reeds being in Lubbock/Shallowater, he also moved there and lived out his life.
Pat Vernon tells me that Edwin B. Reed was a rather tall, slim man. Frances Marion however was short and very portly, even as a young man. She tells me one of his daughters or granddaughters has his Confederate uniform and that it is also very large, thus demonstrating him to have always been a rather heavy set man. She told me that Edwin B. participated in the unveiling of the marker for the Salem Irene cemetery along with a Graham descendant.
She says Francis Marion Reed lived with James Almer's family after Nancy died.
