Re: REED in Mississippi
In Response To: REED in Mississippi ()

Hi,

Here is Carl Reed in the 1910 census of Phillips County, Ark with wife Emily>>

1910 United States Federal Census

Name: Carl Reed
Age in 1910: 21 [26]
Estimated birth year: abt 1889 [abt 1884]
Birthplace: Mississippi
Relation to Head of House: Head
Father's Birth Place: Mississippi
Mother's Birth Place: Mississippi
Spouse's name: Emily
Home in 1910: Helena Ward 4, Phillips, Arkansas
Marital Status: Married
Race: Mulatto
Gender: Male

Household Members: (It states that they have been married 1 year)
Carl Reed 26 Birth place of him and parents is listed as Miss.
Emily Reed 22 Birth place of her and parents is listed as Miss.
Allen Bright 17 Boarder

Ok in the 1900 I had a hard time finding a Carl Reed who matches but I did find a Carl Ried. Note that ancestry.com spells his name RIED instead of Reed or Reid which is a common mistake. This Carl Ried is living in Yazoo County Miss. He is boarder living with the Hall family>>

1900 United States Federal Census

Name: Carl Ried
Home in 1900: Palmetto, Yazoo, Mississippi
Age: 16
Estimated birth year: abt 1884
Birthplace: Mississippi
Race: Black

Household Members:
Simon Hall 40
Francis Hall 33
Robert E Hall 21
Carl Ried 16 Lodger Born APRIL 1884 (I know your Carl was born in May but this could be a simple mistake)

Now what is interesting is that there are 4 more Reid's living two pages over from Carl and they are young as well. It appears that they are living with their sister Carry Wade who is married to a James Wade. So maybe this is your Carl and his sisters and brothers are living with their older sister because something happened to their mother and father.

1900 United States Federal Census
Palmetto, Yazoo, Mississippi

James Wade 35 Head
Carry Wade 18 Wife
Madge Wade 3.12 Dau
Adeline Reid 14 Sister in Law
John Reid 12 Brother in Law
French Reid 10 Sister in Law
Lonso Reid 4 Brother in Law

Here he is in 1930>>

1930 United States Federal Census

Name: Carl C Reed
Home in 1930: St Francis, Phillips, Arkansas
Age: 45
Estimated birth year: abt 1885
Birthplace: Mississippi
Relation to Head of House: Head
Spouse's name: Emma
Race: Black

Household Members:
Carl C Reed 45
Emma Reed 29 (Emma appears to be his second wife)
Samuel Reed 9
Robert E Reed 4 1/12
Louis W Reed 2 3/12

I hopes this helps,

Tony
