James Reed and Harriet Moore Reed were last heard of on The Trail of Tears near Grand Chain, Illinois (Pulaski County) where they left my gr-gr grandmother Rachel Reed Washington to be cared for by another family. I found Rachel living in Grand Chain, Pulaski County, Illinois in the household of Wesley and Nancy Webb.
I was told by my gr-aunt that Grandma Rachel’s family lived in Denver, Colorado.
