Notes for JAMES ALMER (BOSS) REED:

Owned a meat market with Gill Hall in Irene.

Some of this information was obtained from information sent to me by Williams family researcher, Richard Williams.

According to a family member, the Reed and Merrell families were against this marriage because they had already had so many Reed/Merrell marriages, so they eloped to Corsicana to marry.
