REED Family

First Generation

1. Salyer1 Reed was born in Canada August 28, 1852. Salyer died 1927 at 74 years of age.

He married twice. He married Emily Jane Ross about 1872. Emily was born about 1852. Emily died about 1877. Emily and their daughter Mabel died in a diptheria epidemic. Shortly after Sayler and his other daughter, Edna moved to Little Prairie, MN

He married Arabella Henderson 1890. In the 1900 census, his place of birth is noted as Canada.

Arabella was born in Truro, Nova Scotia December 10, 1866. In the 1900 census, her place of birth is noted as Wisconsin and parents are Nova Scotia.

Arabella died 1943 at 76 years of age. In the 1900 census Windsor Twp, Dane Co, Wisconsin page 226, Salyer (age 46) is listed with his wife Arabell (age 33), Jessie? (age 8) and Salyer (age 3). They are noted as having been married for 21 years. I do not think this is right in that Arabell would have only been 12 at this time. More likely it should be 12 or Salyer has been married for 21 years and his second marrage. They have had 4 children with 3 living at the time of the census. Salyer is a farmer.

In the 1910 census Sun Prarie Twp, Dane Co, Wisconsin page 176, Salyer (age 54) is listed with his wife Arabella (age 43), Jenie (age 18) Salyer (age 12) and Ruth (age 9).

Salyer is noted as being married twice and Arabella once.
