CCharles (Charlie) B? D?
CReed Thomas B09 May 1884 Beatrice, Gage, NE D22 Jun 1951 buried Highland Memorial Gardens, Lake Charles, LA
Notes:Some assumptions: The 1900 NE Census shows that Thomas, Emma J, and Charlie were all born in NY, but that Reed Thomas was born in NE. If Reed was born in NE, that means the family made its way to NE sometime before 1884 (when Reed was born). I know, through my grandmother, who is Reed's daughter, that Reed's mother went to LA and Reed followed shortly after to meet her. So somewhere between 1900 and 1904, when Reed's first child was born, Reed and his mother came to LA. My grandmother says that there is some secrecy why they left NE and that Emma J remarried an Airhart (sp?) and she is buried somewhere in Calcasieu Parish, LA under that name. I have a photo of Reed Thomas's headstone and my grandmother's amazing memory.
