First Generation

Jacob Ried was born in 1735, son of Johann Georg Ried and Magdalena Eichorn of Landensteinbach, Baden Durlach, Germany, and came with his parents to Broad Bay, Maine, in 1752. He married Elisabeth Barbara Rominger (1741-1829) in Broad Bay about 1760, and came with her to North Carolina in December 1770. He died in 1819.

The name becomes Reed or Reid in some families. We have left it as Ried throughout this page.
