     Thomas Reid was born on 23 January 1880 at Barclay, Bradford, Pennsylvania, USA. He Notes of Lois Jean Reid Edwards: Thomas (Tom) Reid married and hadtwo children. He was unable to find employment and became 'a King ofthe Road' seeking employment. He knew the schedules of the trains andcould hop from one to another to get where he wished. His wife diedwhen the girls were small, so they were left with his wife's parents,the Clarks. He came back to visit many times. About 1932 when timeswere very bad, he came to Punxsutawney and lived with his brother,Robert and wife, Bert. He was a great help around the house as hecould cook and clean. All the brothers in the family kept him inclothes and a little spending money. This information is from RuthReid Neal, Tom Reid's brother, Robert's, daughter. Ruth spoke fondlyof him. She said he was killed in the railroad yards of Elgin,Illinois, although some in the family say Taylor, Illinois. Cliff Swanthought he died in 1934, but Jean Reid Edwards thinks 1936 as sheremembers him visiting in their home overnight. Andrew Reid's obituarydated 29/1/1932 lists Tom as a Punxsy resident. Mary and Margaret,Tom's children, went to live with Belle Clark Reid's parents after shedied. They took the Clark name. Family members tell they lived inClymer at one time. Still searching.
He died between 1934 and 1936 at Illinois, USA.

Dad hadseen Viv at one of her college dances at Indiana. She had asked herbrother, Henry, to go because he was such a good dancer. Dad had comeup to Henry during the dance and asked him about the girl he was with.Henry said, 'That's my sister'. After that Viv's college roomate,Famie Finn, fixed them up on a blind date. Famie's sister, Loretta,and Mother were to go out with Bill Reid and Johnny Smith. They didn'tknow who would be with who when they got in the car. Johnny said,'I'll take the young lady (Loretta)', so mother got in the back seatwith Bill. Johnny was driving his car. They were supposed to goswimming. The car had several flat tires on the way there and home.They no sooner would repair one tire and another would go flat. Whenthey got to where they were going swimming, it was too cold to go inthe water (Bill and Famie) went in anyway. Mother was reallydisgusted. On the way home it was cold so Bill gave Viv his coat. Thewind caught his cigarette ash and blew it up the coat sleeve. When sherealized what had happened and cried out, Bill crushed the coat sleeveto her arm to put out the ash. It left a mark on her arm for over ayear. When she got back she said, 'I'm never going out with himagain.' Later when she was home from college for the summer, sheattended a Rossiter baseball game. Her brother, Henry, was the catcheron the Rossiter team, which was the best team around. Bill and DudeSteigers were at the game and Bill asked Viv to go to a DeMolay dancein Dubois. They assured her the tires were now in good shape. She saidshe would have to ask her parents. She told her mother, who said toher father, 'you know, he's Alec Reid's son.' They said o.k. It was aformal dance and Bill wore a tux. Viv wore a black moire dress she hadgotten at school. The dress was longer in the back than the front andthe hemline hung in peaks. To tease Viv, on the way to the dance theytold her that Bill couldn't dance. She was hot, she thought 'here wego again' (she loved to dance). After dinner there weren't many peopleon the dance floor, and she didn't want to be with someone whocouldn't dance so she got up to go to the restroom. Her feet flew outfrom under her and she landed on her rear end. She was so embarrassedshe went into the restroom and stayed there for a long time. When shecame out Bill asked her to dance and she reluctantly agreed. He was awonderful dancer. After that she liked him and never went out withanyone else. She always said 'she fell for him'.
He died on 24 August 1993 at Ohio, USA, at age 83. He was buried on 28 August 1993 at Punxsutawney, Jefferson, Pennsylvania, USA.
