I've looked him up several times on Fold3, but there is no definitive information on him. It might be at NARA, but I no longer live anywhere near one of those. From the censuses, I learned this Vincent L. Reed was born in New York, as was my Vincent L. Reed. I'm also aware that there are lots of errors in gravestones (and censuses), but he does appear in the 1850 census as being born in about 1827. Just now I came across a Civil War Draft Registration Record for a Vincent L. Reed, age 36 in 1863, b. New York, and enlisted in the 96th Reg. Illinois Volunteer Infantry. It seems like the two men should be one and the same, IF there was an error on the gravestone. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
