Reuben Reid of Hogans Creek moved his family, including wife, Elizabeth Williams Settle, and son, David Settle Reid, to a 700-acre farm on the ridge between Wolf Island and Little Troublesome creeks in May, 1814.
He became a successful farmer, operated a store and a public inn maintained in a private home and served the county as a constable and justice of the peace.
The family secured a post office, aptly named Reidsville, in 1829.
16-year-old David Settle Reid was appointed its first postmaster.
He would later become a State Senator (1835-42), a U.S. Congressman (1843-47), Governor of North Carolina (1850) and a U.S. Senator (1854)

David is buried at Greenview Cemetery in Reidsville, N.C.
