George W. Reed died between 1835 and 1839. This is based on:
1) the birth of his youngest son, Jacob on 25 Oct 1835
2) not appearing in the 1840 US Census, and
3) his wife marrying William H. Delong on 28 Aug 1840

George's parents are not known via documentation. However, in 1830, Joseph Reed lived next door to George in Amanda Township, Fairfield County, Ohio. Joseph is listed between the age of 50 and 60 and could be his father.

[NOTE: Some trees list Joseph F. Reed (1790-1856) and Sarah "Sally" Swinehart (1794-1855) as George's parents. This is highly unlikely since this Joseph F. Reed resided in Sandusky County, Ohio in 1840 and is listed between the age of 50 and 59. The Joseph Reed that resided next door to George in 1830 is listed between the age of 50 and 60)
