s/o James Alexander Reed
& Nell Quinlan Donnelly Reed
Nell's first husband Paul Donnelly, for reasons unknown and certainly due to being depressed, had often threatened Nell that if she became pregnant he would kill himself. Paul became a philandering alcoholic and Nell and Paul grew emotionally distant. Nell came to know James A. Reed, the fighting U.S. Senator from Missouri. In September 1931, while Nell was still married to Paul Donnelly(who threatened to kill himself if she ever became pregnant, because he was unable to have children) and James Reed was married to his wife Lura,Reed refused to divorce his wife, Nell Donnelly was his married neighbor and mistress... Nell ostensibly traveled to Europe to adopt a child. The truth is that Nell was pregnant with Reed's child and delivered a healthy boy named David Quinlan Reed.
