+6 i. Jonathan5 Reed, born January 12, 1701/02 in Salem Ma. moved to Portsmouth,Kittery,Dover; died Abt. 1779 in Perhaps Rhode Island.

Jonathan Read of Salem MA probably married Ann Hanson of Dover NH about 1724. Eleven children have been identified through probate records. Ann died about 1741 and Jonathan married Sarah Kempton in 1744 and moved to Smithfield RI in 1745. Need documented records of the marriage of Jonathan and Ann and the births or baptisms of their children. They were probably Quakers but do not appear in the Salem or Dove Quaker records. Needed for a forthcoming book, The Read Family of Salem Massachusetts.

Update 5/2014:

He was a Quaker of Dover, New Hampshire.
