*see contributer's note below
 


*Contributer's note: I have been doing alot of research for him and I believe that "Polly" that is listed on the stone is suppose to be "Dolly" and the birth year 1769 and not 1767. I have talked with several researched about this and they agree with this. John Reed married Dorothea Sutz in Montgomery county and the D and P could have been easily mixed up with handwritten pages and also the 9 and the 7. The tombstone is a newer tombstone and believe to be placed several years after his death. - by Michelle
