Welcome graphic

The Enoch Benjamin Reed Family of Yell County Ar.


        These pages are dedicated to all those who have gone before us and paved the way for us to be where we are today. Our Ancestors truly are a part of us and who we are.

      " Some family trees have beautiful leaves , but some just have a bunch of nuts. Remember it is the nuts that make the tree worth shaking."

   Searching my family tree roots has brought much enjoyment into my life . I've especially enjoyed finding relatives that I didn't even know we had. I feel like I am guided sometimes in my search by my mother , aunts, and others. I want to especially thank my cousins for all the help and great pictures I have received from them. We had a dear aunt that did alot of research in the last years of her life and left us alot of information to follow up on. Our great grandmother's Bible was also a great source of information for our family tree.

  I've been trying to learn more about the history of the different periods of time to better understand about the things that hurt them and the things that gave them happiness and pleasure. Altho wars. fashion, and customs change , somethings are eternal..love , pride in children , devotion to country , sadness at the death of loved ones and joy in a crop or new baby. I have discovered  that deeds of property can sometimes tell us about their way of life or financial histories.

  I can almost feel their pain , when I read of the children that are lost at birth and so young in years. I know it must have been very painful to leave their parents behind when they travelled in wagon trains to new places and new adventures. They must have had many fears for themselves and their children as they reached out to new lands and places. Too many mother's died during childbirth with few midwives or a doctor to help them. There was so much sickness and disease because of the lack of proper medical care .

 I truly love all my ancestors , even tho I have not found them all. I will continue to search for the missing branches or twings. I want to honor them and show the world who they were . I want to keep them alive in my families's children and grandchildren. I hope and pray they will do the same for their children.


             " The Enoch Reed Family of Franklin County , Alabama "


Enoch Reed was born 1809 in Georgia . He married Mariah ( Johnson ) Reed born in 1811 in Indiana . Enoch and Mariah were living in Tn. in 1829 to 1833 . In 1835 we find them living in Marion County ( St. Claire ) County , Alabama . Enoch and Mariah are found living in Franklin County in 1840 and lived there until their deaths sometime between 1870-1879 .They are not shown in the 1880 census with their children. Enoch Reed established " The Reed  Cemetery " near Newburg and Holly Grove , Franklin County, Alabama. Enoch Reed was a farmer and also a maker of shoes and tanner of leather according to family history. His wife Mariah ( Johnson ) Reed was born in Indiana to J.J. Johnson and Holly " Nettie " Johnson . According to the family history of the Reed family she was a full blood Cherokee Indian. We have researched for her but have been unable to find her in any records, as we found our Shining Star . It seems if they keep their indian name it's hard to find them . Our Shining Star took an english name so she was easier to find. We have alot of stories that have been passed down in the family about  Holly " Nettie " , so we feel she did exist . We are happy to add her to our family tree .


      " The Children of Enoch and Mariah ( Johnson ) Reed "

Obidlance [Reed] [1829-1855] was the first child born to Enoch and Mariah [ Johnson] Reed . She was born in Giles , Tn.
Obidlance Reed married Oliver P. Tungett [1829-1860] of Alabama .
They had the following children together :
1. Mary J. Tungett [1848-1921].
2.Dorthory A. Tungett [1849-].
3.Zachariah Enoch Eufronis Tungett [1851-1938].
4.Sarah Melinda Tungett [1853-1932].
5.Infant son Tungett [1855-1855].
Both Obidlance and Infant Tungett died in 1855 and were buried in the Reed Cemetery , which was on Enoch Reed's property. Enoch Reed dedicated the land for a Reed Cemetery to Franklin County , Alabama .
After Obidlance Reed's death Oliver P. Tungett married another daughter of Enoch Reed , Martha A. Reed [1837-1860].
Oliver P. Tungett and Martha A. Reed had two children together.
1. Matthew Oliver Perry Tungett [1856-1898].
2.Mary E. Tungett[1857-].
After Martha's death Oliver P . Tungett left Franklin , County , Alabama and took his children with him . The Reed family lost contact with him and the children.
Years later we were contacted by Tungett Researchers who gave us the new information so we could change and update our records. We are very thankful for that .

    Elizabeth Reed ( 1849 ) was born in Franklin County , Alabama . Elizabeth died at a young age and was never married . She was probably buried in " The Reed Cemetery .








    Sarah Marie Reed was born ( 1843-1907 )in Franklin County, Alabama . She married  Silas  " Buck" Berlin . Seay [ 1846-1930] of Franklin County Alabama.
      They are both  in buried in the Oakgrove Cemetery Franklin County , Al.

    Family history states he took care of the Reed Cemetery as long as he lived.
    The above information on Sarah Mariah [ Maria] Reed and Silas B. Seay and their children comes from Doris Reed , a Reed researcher of this Family Tree.




    Notes ; Mariah Johnson Reed 's father was J.J.Johnson and her mother was Holly " Nettie " Johnson. Our " Reed Family Bible " says she was a full blooded Cherokee Indian who was born in Indiana . Research has not been able to prove that fact as yet .                                                                                      
    Enoch Reed was listed as a farmer and blacksmith in the family history. In the 1870 census we also found a Jane Yocum 60 yrs old listed as an aunt  and  a Mathias Yocum 84 yrs old who we believe to be Jane Yocum's father. We know that two of the Reed wives were (Yocums )  so we believe there is a family connection between them and Susan and Martha Reed.


    It is believed that both Enoch and Mariah died between 1871 and 1879 as they are both missing from the 1880 Federal Census. They are both buried in " The Reed Family Cemetery " in Franklin County , Al.         


      This Journal of the many branches of the Reed Family has been a real challenge to the remaining Reed cousins. We feel proud to be a part of this great family and want to keep their memory --   alive for those that come behind us. It seems when you open a door to the past there suddenly are many doors to open. We feel the pictures and history of our family tree makes it more personal .  Stop !   Take time to step back in the past and meet some of the great people who have gone before us .


    The information on our Family Tree pages was and is a joint project with several family members working together. Alot of the great information came from an old family bible of the Woodall,s ,Reed,s Farmer,s and McBrides.Much of the information has been checked and verified. There are some things that are family stories and history that has passed down from parents to their children. This is still an ongoing research of the many branches and twigs of this great family. New pages and items will be added as we learn new information. We are proud to let the others know about our family tree.


    Any remarks or information should be sent to Rebecca at seawinds31@earthlink.net information on these pages is the property of the" History Journal 0f the Reed Family Tree ". written by Rebecca  , Bonnie , and Jo Ann . Special notes , letters and family history and other information from the late Rebecca Louisa ( Woodall) Farmer, Hunt, Johnson's( Family Bible) and Arbelia ( Farmer) Reed and Lula Marie ( Reed) Woodard . Without all this information we would not be able to put our "Reed Family Journal" together. 


     In the early days of researching of our Family Tree , Our Lula Marie ( Reed ) Woodard worked with another Reed , her cousin Melva ( Reed ) Warren. Melva and Lula Marie worked together on some of the branches and twigs . They made a great team and helped us with alot of information. A special thanks to them.

    We Are A Family

    Since before any of us were born, God planned for us to share our lives together.  He knew exactly how our strengths and weaknesses would balance one another and the depth of love, understanding, and commitment we would learn to feel.  He knew the richness of our separate characters would be born as a result of overcoming the trials together.  He knew that we would laugh together and cry together.  He knew we would need each other....to hug....to help....to teach....to serve....to Love.....
