Dedicated to George Reed

"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword. His truth is marching on." Julia Ward Howe




Introduction

George Reed was my great-great grandfather (1816-1864). He and his family immigrated to the United States in 1858. They settled in what is now Great Neck, New York. He worked as a farmer until his enlistment in the Federal Army on September 1, 1863. He was killed at the Battle of Olustee on February 20, 1864.




Gettysburg Address

".... that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain ...." Abraham Lincoln



Epilogue

"... they were not swept away while rushing with terror and confusion to the rear, but were killed and wounded while standing up in solid and unbroken line, bravely and gallantly fighting the enemy."

Biography

George Reed was born March 21, 1819, in Froyle, England. Froyle is located in the District of Alton, County of Southampton. On April 4, 1839, George married Harriet Pond. They had five children who survived to immigrate to the United States in 1858. The children were; Charles (11/15/40), James (3/12/43), Timothy (12/3/48), Daniel (7/29/52) and Harriet (7/13/57). Timothy was my great-Grandfather. George is described as being 5'5", weighing 150 pounds, brown hair and blue eyes.

George was the son of George (1792-1879) and Sarah (Collins) Reed (1792-1834). George was the son of James Reed (1764-1841) and Lucy (Coombs) Reed (1764-1851). At this point, 1764, the lineage for the Reed family stops.
