  • Notes 
    • Gershom Reed was born in Dutchess County, N. Y., and removed to Chatham, N. Y., in 1791, and bought a farm of 320 acres on west side of Kinderhook Creek, three miles north of Chatham Center, and here he died aged 80 years. As a citizen of Amenia, N. Y., he expressed his patriotism by subcribing to a pledge (called the "Roll of Plonor,") to preserve the constitution and to oppose the arbitrary acts of the British Parliament.

      Gershom Reed, the grandfather of Daniel Reed, was born in Dutchess county, March 10, 1749, and removed to Chatham in 1791, locating on the farm now owned by Tabor Parks. He here reared a family of seven sons and three daughters. He died July 27, 1829, aged eighty years, four months, and seventeen days. His wife, Jerusha, was born Jan. 3, 1751, and died Oct. 17, 1831, aged seventy-nine years, eleven months, and fourteen days.
