Note: David considered both Ida's girls as his daughters. Ida is listed as his daughter in his obituary and she is identified as Ida Reed in at least two census records.

David was married to Lucy Ann Ort and they had five daughters together. Sometime after 1868, he left Lucy and he and Isabelle went to Elkhart, Indiana. They lived together for a couple of years, and then married in Cass County Michigan in 1872. From there, they moved north to Oceana and Weare counties in northern Michigan. He thought of Isabelle's daughters as his own, and they often used the Reed name. David's birth name was Hickox. He assumed and began using the Reed name after he left Lucy.
