J B Reid married Johnie Magnolia (Downer) (Berry) Reid.

Johnie Magnolia (Downer) (Berry) Reid was born to William Alexander Downer and Eliza Brown Gutrie Downer. She married James Evans Berry and they had 8 children, the youngest my grandmother, Johnie Allene Berry Cox. My Grandpa James passed away when my grandmother was about 9 months old. A few years later, Johnie Magnolia married her second husband, J.B. Reid. They had one daughter.

J.B. Reid was a Primative Baptist preacher in Texas. They say he was rather strict but mellowed out as he got older.

I was too young to remember Grandpa Reid, but I'm told that he always had a pocket of lemon drops that he liked to hand out to the kids.

He passed away in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.
