Andrew and his Marianne gave the unmarried  Mary Harris and her son, Joel Chandler Harris a home and paid for the young Joel's education. Much has been made of the influence of professional writers on the creator of "Uncle Remus," however, seldom is more than a nod directed towards the kith and ken who undoubtedly made the greatest impression on him from his birth through young adulthood.  Possibly no family in Putnam County held any greater fascination to the writer than the Reids and the Cloptons.  A family named Clopton play a prominent role in one of his delightful novels.  See A Tempest In The Briar Patch.

Reid, b Aug 8, 1828 d. June 15, 1829.  Evidently he was a twin of Alexander J. Reid and their mother was Andrew Reids first wife Mariah who died shortly after the birth of the twins."  There are four pages of records.  The entries were made over time by several hands.  The earliest date is 1787, the latest, 1917.  Special thanks to James Penick Marshall, Jr., President, Eatonton-Putnam County Historical Society for assisting in the preparation of this family page.
