I have lots of Reed and Read in my file but no direct line and I don't see an immediate connection to yours.

William Symonds and Judith Phippen were my 9th great-grandparents. Have you done your Simonds line yet? Feel like I'm missing something with the Pierce and Jennison lines, can't quite make a connection.

Oh, Randy, I have LOTS of connections here. Huldah Blodgett, wife of Ebenezer Reed is the daughter of Samuel Blodgett and Huldah Simonds. She is the sister of James Simonds and Susannah Blodgett, my 7x great grandparents. William Reed and Mabel Kendall are my 10x great grandparents. I descend from their daughter Abigail who married Francis Wyman. Their daughter Rebecca married Joseph Winn, whose parents, Edward Winn and Joanna ? are my 10x great grandparents, too, from their son Increase who married Hannah Satell. There are loads of other Reed marriages in my family tree since I have many Watertown and Woburn lines (Wyman, Richardson, Carter, Thompson, Simonds, etc. etc.)
