Notes from Debbie Harison''s file, 16 Feb 2007:

Although, not proven the Jesse Reed who died in Charlemont, Hampshire Co.Mass in 1792 could very well be the Jesse, son of Hezekiah and Hannah. Hedid not leave a Will, but the guardianship papers provide the names ofhis wife, and minor children. In the 1790 Census the count was 2-2-5.

The following is the information I found in his Probate Papers..JesseReed of Charlemont:
1792 Book 17 191-190
"March 6, 1792; Ruth Reed is granted power of Administration. The estateis insolvent and is insufficent to discharge the debts. Ruth isappointed guardian to Ruth 7, Sarah 5, Alonzo 4, Jesse 2

1793 Book 18 95-97
The Inventory includes the farm at Charlemont and two lots in Cumington.59#, 63# total of estate..#232-4-1, Due on estate 24-5-4

1807 Book 24 312
Noah Reed is appointed guardian unto Lonzo Reed, a minor over 14, Childand heir of Jesse Reed,dec April 20, 1807.

The assumption would be that Ruth has died. I also saw a reference to a"Rev" Jesse Reed.

Town of Cummington
Peter Tower, a decendant of John, who came from Hingham, England, about1838, was one of the early settlers of this town. His son Stephen marrieda Miss Bowker, and reared thirteen children. His son John was born inCummington in 1781, married Ruth, daughter of Rev. Jesse Reed, and hadborn to him seven children, viz.: John M., Salome, Coleman, Dexter,Laura, Roswell and Russell. Of these, lour are living, John M., Dexter,of Williamsburg, Laura (Mrs. Cephas Thayer), and Russell of Worthington.The last mentioned married Rebecca Granger, and has two children, Cole-man E. and Mary E. Dexter married Irene Pierce, and has four children,namely, Clinton B., C. Belle, Lizzie J. and Pearly D.

In 1771 the proprietors located a "meeting-house spot" very nearly in thegeographical center of the town, which was on the rocky ledge northwestof what is now known as the " Daniel Dawes place ; " but when they foundhow unsuitable it was, a dispute arose as to the proper locality. Thisdispute lasted seven years and was only settled when, a part of the townhaving been set off to (lagebornugh (now Windsor), the center ofCummington was changed. Meantime a meeting house had been built byprivate individuals near the "four corners." between the Adam Porter andSquire Snell farms. After the set off to Gageborough the town bought thismeeting-house, and moving it about a mile east on to the old " Meetinghouse Hill," enlarged it by putting a section in the middle. Serviceswere held in this church till another was built, a few rods south of it,in 1839. The first act of the town as a corporate body was theinstallation of a minister of the gospel. Before this time Rev. Mr.Hooper, Jesse Reed, Mr. Porter, Mr. Billings and Mr. Hotchkiss hadofficiated at brief intervals, but no minister had been ''settled until onthe 7th of July, 1779, the little church consisting of eight male membersordained Rev. James Briggs.
