     "Notes: Inverness-shire (before the reorganisation of Local Government in 1975) was the largest of all the old counties and stretched from Inverness to Fort William and Strath Spey in the Grampian Mountains out west as far as it was possible to go. This included many Islands i.e. Rum, Eigg, Muck, Skye and all the outer Hebrides except the northern tip of Lewis. Covering such a vast area, many Clans were included e.g. MacNeil, MacLeod, MacKinnon, Maclean, Fraser, MacIntosh, Cameron, MacPherson, Campbell, Gordon, and MacDonald & Clanranald to name only the largest.
     "A Mrs. Etta Reid Wells, twice married but never blessed by children, salvaged out of her belongings, her family's genealogical notations and passed them on as a
     "legacy to a nephew in South Carolina. After her death, her voice would trail off and be forgotten, but the written message would remain. These notations reach back through the awful and empty chasms of the ages to a perpetual silence that shuts out everything. The Reid connectedness is with the totality of forces that operated within the clans of the Scottish Highlanders in the tenth century. These Highlanders, whether novice or immigrants, were from the first to last of the same Celtic stock. There we find the Reids of Scottish nobility with a reputation for moral and physical strength, energy, ingenuity, piety, resourcefulness, and the ability to lead and direct others. Having been confined for many years within their natural boundaries and having little or no intercourse with the rest of the world, they formed strong attachments with their neighbors, the BROWNS, the KEITHS, the EDENS, the RANDOLPHS, the HESTERS, the DOUGLASES, and the SUTHERLANDS, and intermarried with them. The REIDS and their allied families lived in Inverness-Shire, the Strath-Sprey. The Reids and their allies were loyal to the Stuarts and followed them with the clang and color of weaponry during all their misfortunes. They took part in the BATTLE OF FLODDEN when the English won the victory near Branxton, Northumberland, in 1513. Scarcely a family of eminence survived without having had an ancestor killed at Flodden Field. This battle was in fact, the beginning of Scotch genealogical records. Again the Reids and their allies were engaged in the BATTLE OF CULLODEN, fought in support of Prince Charles on a tract of land in Inverness-Shire about six miles east of Inverness, when the fate of the house of Stuart was decided on April 16, 1746. SIR JOSEPH REID was driven from Scotland as a political refugee, he and his family with their friends and other families mentioned above, along with other notable families of Scotland. For them it was farewell to the "land of brown heath and shaggy wood". He, like his father, SIR THOMAS REID, who was born and died in InvernessShire, had been knighted for deeds of Chivalry. The trip to America was an eight weeks voyage in a sailing vessel. His destination was Botetourt County, Virginia, where he settled. The genealogical notations on our Sir Joseph Reid end with the notation that he died in Virginia, the date of death not given. His son, NATHANIEL REID, loving the cause of liberty, fought on the side of America in the War of Independence.
     "He lived in Virginia until after the war, but was given grants of lands in the Old Pendleton District of South Carolina in compensation for his war service, and he and his family moved to that District in upper South Carolina. (From the book "The Nathan Reids of Virginia in the March of Freedom", by Elizabeth Reid Austin and Helen Reid Roberts.
     "The source for names and dates of Thomas and his children are from the Family Bible of Joseph and Anne (Gordon) Reid, dated 1698. Matthew Morris who descends from the line of Alexander Reid was kind enough to send me photo copies of the Family Register and Title page. He also gave me the information on William Reid, born 1746 and his descendants.

     "Sir Thomas Reid lived his whole live in Iverness-Shire, Scotland. His name places him squarely in the Robertson Clan (Donnacaidh in gaelic). The clan Robinson/ Donnacaidh is composed of many families, including Duncan, McInroy, Stark, Collier and the largest sept, Reid. He was knighted by the King, as was his son Joseph Reid. Joseph was also born in Iverness. He was exiled to North America after the Jacobite uprising in Scotland. Joseph and his father had been strident supporters of the restorations of the Stuart Family (Bonnie Prince Charlie) to the English throne. After the Scots were defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, the English exiled many of those rebellious Scots in an effort to break up the Clans and control the unruly ones left behind.

     "The following is an excerpt from an article written by Dr. Larry E. Reid used for documentation on his membership application for the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution).
     "THE REID FAMILY IN NORTH AMERICA
     "The writing of this chapter was really not possible until my cousin, Mann on Brooks McClure, found a very old Reid family Bible while going through her many papers and memorabilia. Since she does not carry the name of Reid (her aunt, Keturah Brooks, mar-ried my great grandfather, William Massie Reid) she wanted me to have it. Mannon passed away Sunday night October 17, 2004 just five days short of her 101 birthday.
The Bible establishes the Reid family’s Scottish roots. These roots are further explained in a book written by Elizabeth Reid Austin and Helen Reid Roberts who tell the story of how and why Joseph Reid came to the North American colonies of the English empire in 1746. Unfortunately, there are pages missing from the Bible. How many I do not know. The notation at the bottom of several pages indicates that there are other pages with family information on them, but there are no more pages. Here is the story of the Reids in North America as I have been able to determine it from the family Bible and many other sources. I have relied extensively upon the help and research of others who have spent their own time and resources in establishing many facts, places, and circumstances that establish our connection to these early Reids. I have documented my sources where I felt appropriate.
     "Sir Thomas Reid lived his entire life in Inverness-Shire, Scotland. His name places him squarely in the Robertson Clan (Donnachaidh in Gaelic). The Clan Robinson/ Donnachaidh is composed of many families including Duncan, McInroy, Stark, Collier, and the largest sept, Reid . He was knighted by the king, as was his son, Joseph Reid. Joseph was also born in Inverness-Shire. Sir Joseph Reid was exiled to the North American colonies after the 1745 Jacobite uprising in Scotland. Sir Joseph and his father had been strong supporters of the restoration of the Stuart Family (Bonnie Prince Charlie) to the English throne . After the Scots were defeated at the battle of Culloden in 1746, the English exiled many of these rebellious Scots in an effort to break up the Clans and to control the unruly ones left behind. Anyone interested in the social and cultural conditions in Scotland during this turbulent time may do so by reading any good history of Scotland during the 18th cen-tury. It is important here to only know that Sir Joseph Reid was exiled to the North American colonies. He eventually settled in Augusta County, Virginia about 1746. The part of Augusta County in which he settled would become Botetourt County in 1770 . In 1771 William Reid is mentioned in Chalkley’s Chronicles where the author is describing the location of land purchased by Francis Patton as being at the “corner William Reid, Robert Terrol” . In 1778 both Joseph and William are named in Morton’s “A History of Rockbridge County, Virginia” . He brought his wife, Anne Gordon, and his young son, Nathaniel Reid, with him. Soon after settling in Augusta County, Anne gave birth to another son, William Reid, December 14, 1746 . Anne was obviously expecting during the eight-week trip to the new world. Not much is known about William and his parents in their new home. We do know that Nathaniel Reid, William’s brother and Joseph’s oldest son, married Elizabeth Clayton June 5, 1761, Augusta County, Virginia. Nathaniel and Elizabeth had five children. William married Jane Anderson in Augusta County, Virginia March 10, 1765. William and Jane had eight children. Five of these children are listed in Joseph’s family Bible. Eight children are listed in William’s last will and testament; the five children mentioned in the family Bible plus three additional child."5 GAV-7.

It provided information on our ancestor William Reid who was a Patriot in the Revolutionary War. In addition, William's father Joseph and brother Nathaniel Reid were soldiers in the Rev. War.

; from FindAGrave.com:
     Birth:      1793, Pickens County, South Carolina, USA
     Death:      1875, White County, Georgia, USA
     James W Adams was the son of James Adams, Sr. and Anne (Nancy) Reid. He is mentioned in more records than anyone else in his family. At one point he was simply known as James but obviously had to be uniquely identified when other relatives were also named James. He was identifed as James, Jr in his father's will and some census records. He spent the first years of his life in Pendleton Dist, SC on his father's farm. There he met and married his wife and settled on the waters of Brushy Creek on land acquired from his brother Mathew in 1816. He later sold out and bought property on Doddy's Creek next to his father-in-law Jeptha Freeman. He was still living in Pendleton Dist in 1820, but by Dec 1822 he had moved into Georgia and bought some land in Habersham (now White) Co, near the present city of Cleveland. Over the next 3 decades he bought and sold many pieces of property to and from relatives and others. He even sold the property willed to his mother which would be his when his mother died. Apparently he sold it more than once and was indicted and tried "as a common cheat and swindler." In 1839 he was found not guilty by a jury in Habersham Co. During the same year his wife and daughter received an inheritance from Bethena's father.
After the death of his wife about 1845 and the settlement of his mother's estate in 1846, James appears to have fallen on hard times. In 1850 he and his two youngest sons were living in the household of Ezekiet Catlett, husband of Bethena's sister. At that time he gave his occupation as farmer. All of James' older children had either gone to Walker or Gordon Counties. In 1851 James and the other heirs of Jeptha Freeman sold 12 acres of land to Jeptha Murdock a grandson of Jeptha Freeman. A year later he sold property to his son William L in Habersham Co and as power of attorney he sold other property to his son Francis Marion. Within the following decade James' two remaining sons also went west, one to Gordon Co and the other to Oregon. By 1860 James W was working as a day laborer and living with his widowed sister Lucinda Merritt near the Mt Yonah community. In 1870 he was still living with his sister and was apparently in poor health. Early researchers who actually knew members of the family living in the early part of the twentieth century say he was blind and didn't live long after 1870.
