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'.

Biography

David Reid witnessed the birth of Christian Reid. David Reid witnessed the birth of Euphemia Reid. He witnessed the birth of Andrew Reid in February 1814. David Reid and Barbara Dunsyre were married on 23 June 1813 in Scotland.
David Reid was christened on 23 March 1794 in Scotland. I do not know if this David Reid is the father of Andrew Reid marriedto Helen Kilpatrick. He was the only Andrew Reid I found that was bornin Wemyss, Scotland at the right time. Further research is needed.This hypothetical family tree (from this David Reid and his ancestors)was constructed from information provided to me by Kim Fairley thatshe reproduced from the IGI (all Reids in Fife, Scotland from1600-1900). None of this material has been verified.
