Seeking info J.M. "Matt" REED and family who married Susan SELLERS in 1883,
Jones County. Any help is appreciated.

Mary's maiden name was Mary Ann Easterling and John Andrew Sellers married
1851.  Mary Ann died in 1884 and John remarried in 1888 - Nancy A. Holcomb.
According to the book "Who Married Whom in Jones County", Richard John
Sellers was born in SC 1800 and married Sarah Joriah McLemore, b SC 1806,
don't know if they were married in SC or Jones County.  He married 2nd to
Mrs. Permelia A. Easterling in 1859 and third to Martha J. Rankin-Little in

>From what I can find Susan died in 1896 in Jones Co.  J. M. Reed remarried
???? and I believe I found them in 1900 Census for Neshoba County, living
next door to the Breckenridges.  Mary Rachel Reed and Charles Alcorn
Breckenridge are my husband's grandparents.

J. M. and Susan Sellers Reed's children are:   (only initials, ugh!)
   J. M.    b 1883   male   Moselle, Jones Co.
   M. (Mary) R. (Rachel)   b 17 Jan 1886   Moselle, Jones Co.  d 9 Jan 1951
                                      Hinds Co.
   J. S.     b 1888   male
   G. B.    b  1891  male    (George)
   J. A.     b  1894  male

I thought I had a little info on a couple of the sons, but can't find it.
will continue to look thru my notes.  I'm in the throws of reorganizing all
my research, need I say more!!!

Let me know if this connects with you or not.
