Son of:
Thomas Murray/Reed &
Rosetta (_______) Reed

Husband of:
Dorothy Rebecca "Rebecca" (Jemson) Reed

Civil War veteran of Company F, 19th Maryland Infantry, aka 19th U.S. Colored Infantry.

Regarding his surname, he signed an affidavit in Sep 1905 which stated the following: "He served in Co. F. 19th Reg't. U.S.C.T. under the name of Allen Murray. When he enlisted he went under his father's name, his father's name being Thomas Murray, his mother being Rosetta Murray by marriage. The reason why he took the name of Reed was because that was his father's father's name was Reed, his father being a base born child took the name of his mother which was Reed. He, the affiant, therefore, when he returned from the War took the name of his father because he was going by that name, Thomas Reed, instead of Thomas Murray."
