John Reed was born 15 June 1848 in Illinois. He married Delilah Schooler on 18 Jan 1874 in Centerville, Appanoose, IA. In February of the same year, John and Delilah moved to Mills County, IA. They lived in Lyons Township, and eventually bought a farm in Plattville Township. John and Delilah had 12 children: Emma Reed, Edgar Reed, Albert Reed, Jennie Reed, Laura Reed, Amos Reed, Elsie Reed, Viva Reed, Otis Reed, Elmer, and two unknown.

Delilah died of pneumonia on 21 Jan 1910 at home. She was survived by her husband and six children. She is buried in the Martin's Chapel Cemetery in Pacific Junction, IA.

John was living near Missouri Valley, IA before his death on 30 Jun 1918 in a Council Bluffs, IA hospital. He was also buried at Martin's Chapel Cemetery in Pacific Junction, IA.

This picture was originally in the possession of Amos E. Reed and wife Grace A. Fosdick.  Amos was the son of John Reed and Delilah Schooler.  Grace was the daughter of Aaron Jay Fosdick and Adeline Buffington.  Any direct connection to Modale in Harrison County, IA is not known.  However, there was a lot of family living in Harrison County.

Amos's father John Reed was living around Missouri Valley, IA prior to his death in 1918.

I found several Reed and Schooler families living around Missouri Valley and Raglan.  The Fosdicks lived 3 1/2 miles southwest of Missouri Valley, IA. (Deb Hascall)
