The only history we have on Thomas, is that himself and two brothers Henry Lewis and Douglas Lisle went to area of Tucumcari, Quay County, New Mexico to homestead some land. An act of Congress on May 20, 1862 granted homesteads on public domains to actual settlers. Thomas stayed, but Henry and Douglas left. Thomas was granted 320 acres on October 25, 1913. The grant was signed by President Woodrow Wilson on that date. Some information from Chuck White, nephew of Thomas's son Howard Reid, tells of the three boys leaving Texas in a wagon and living in a dugout type home while first homesteading their land. The above generation four account of James Ashall Reid has the newspaper account of their mothers funeral in 1936 and shows that Thomas was still in Tucumcari, Henry in Whitney, TX and Douglas from Grier, New Mexico. It seems that Thomas was a cantankerous type, and would settle a dispute in the old west style of justice.

Dad loved to hunt and fish. He had his fishing boat all ready for the next year before his passing. Those that knew him also seen the competitive spirit he had when he played cards or dominos. I remember some very noisy games going on when I was a kid. I think the whole Reid clan played some form of cards or dominos. My wife and I were at his side when he passed away.

6. JOSEPH DUDLEY REID (ANDREW LEVI REID, JAMES A. REID, THOMAS REID, JAMES REID Sr, ROBERT REID Sr.) As of now we do not know his birthdate, but he died on July 08, 1937. He married LILLIAN EVERLINE LEE, daughter of William Edward Lee and Elizabeth H. Rhodes. The history on uncle Dudley, is that he was killed during a prison break at Huntsville, Texas. It is claimed by the prison that he was shot trying to escape, and that he had a gun in his hand at the time. The story that was passed down from the family is that he was a trustee and had full access to the whole prison. He was due for release in a few months, but was supposedly caught in a crossfire from some other prisoners trying to escape. His grave lay unmarked for almost 70 years until the efforts of our cousin Ralph Lee started a search for his burial site. Through his determined effort, there is a headstone that marks his grave in the Eastham prison cemetery at Lovelady, Texas.

6. OLIN DOUGLAS REID, (ANDREW LEVI REID, JAMES A. REID, THOMAS REID, JAMES REID Sr, ROBERT REID Sr.) was born on March 10, 1911, in Whitney, Hill County, Texas, and died in September 22, 1979. He married MARY OLLA "JACKIE" FENTON. Aunt Jack was born on August 08, 1908, and died on January 10, 2000. They both are buried in Eugene, Lane Co. Oregon. Uncle Douglas was the youngest of Andrew Levi and Susie Rachel's children. Him and all his brothers including my dad got about 8 years of school before having to go to work. Susie Rachel died about 4 years after Doug was born, and Aunt Ruthie was the one that helped raise the boys after that. Thomas Laymon Reid's daughter, Bunah also helped raise uncle Douglas. He settle around Floydada, Texas because that is where their only child was born in 1934. Then they moved to Plainview, Tx and he went to work for the Hiway Dept with his father-in-law mister Fenton. He next moved to Long Beach California to work in the shipyards during world war II. Then after two years they bought a little place around Elmira, Oregon which is just outside of Eugene. They then moved to Eugene and that is where they settled down until his passing. Uncle Douglas was the first to settle in the Willamette Valley and soon the Reid migration from Texas and different places started.
