Last Name[edit]

Was John Reed's original last name Reidt? Or was it Reith? This article seems to give both. --Danberbro (talk) 18:43, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

That paragraph isn't well cited, but if you look at the NC Historic Sites citation, the "History" page reveals that the State of North Carolina, at least, takes the position that it could be any of those three, and is not formally known. I have a few sources that I could check in when I get home, but overall that paragraph (and the whole article) needs citation work. Cdtew (talk) 13:04, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

New Source[edit]
