Directions: Reed Family Cemetery in Northeast Township is located one and one half miles west of Trimble Cemetery on land entered by William Reed. At one time there was a number of graves with rough stone markers without inscriptions. The graves were plowed over long ago.

Known to be buried there were David Reed and his wife Rachael. They came from Kentucky in 1812, following their son William and family, who had come in 1811. It is not known what other members of the family were buried there.
This information was supplied by the late Charles Finly, a descendant of David Reed.
