Sergeant John Reid
« on: Monday 04 October 10 15:11 BST (UK) »
Seeking information on Sergeant John Reid of the 48th Foot, born in Birr, King's County, Ireland, in April 1798, died 7 May 1872 at 7 Park Hills Steet, Bury, Lancashire, England.  He married Mary Ann Parkes (1807-1865), an Australian convict, on 24 December 1827 at Bellary Chapelry, Kamataka, India.  He was released from military service in 1838 for reasons of health.  In 1841 he was living at Ramsey, Isle of Man, then moved to Manchester and finally to Bury, Lancashire, where he operated a store and shoe shop.  While living at Tottington, Lancashire, his daughter Henrietta Mona Reid (1848-1932) met Thomas Schofield (1826-1898), Master Dyer at the Manchester Woolen Mills, and later migrated with the Schofield family to America, settling in Utah.  Henrietta Mona became a polygamous (Mormon) wife of Thomas Schofield.  Thomas and Henrietta Mona were my great-grandparents.  Any information welcomed, but especially interested in parents of John Reid.(photo of John Reid)

Thanks for all your help!

Since you are related to Henrietta, do you know any other information for her brothers William Henry Reid, Albert Edwin Reid? Did they ever marry or do you know their death dates?

Thanks so much. Have a great day!
