Rene Robinson and Kelsi Alyssa Robinson a little history about your county
William J. Reed “Silver Billy” was born 13 Apr 1770 in Guilford Co, NC and he died 22 Apr 1856 in Huffman, Jefferson Co, AL. He is buried in Reed Cemetery located on the Old Springville Road adjacent to Spring Lake Farms.
William Reed is my ancestor who settled the land currently located between Huffman and Chalkville. He and his descendants were active in the development of Birmingham. Your article reports a William REID. Is this a possible spelling error?
Love this site. I have many old pictures of my family from Birmingham, AL. Would you like to see them?
