25. George Raymond Reed (George Edwin , Henry William , William ) was born 1, 2, 3 on 15 Jul 1898 in Harlington, Middlesex, England. He died 4 on 8 Jan 1943 in Veteran's Hospital, Gulfport, Harrison Co., Mississippi. The cause of death was due to complication from the inhalation of poison gas in WW I in Europe. He was buried 5 in Jackson, Hinds Co., Mississippi. George was counted in a census 6 in 1901 in Cowley, Middlesex, England. He immigrated about 1906. He served in the military 7 Private in the U.S. Army 1 Oct 1919 - 30 Sep 1920 in Camp Zachary Taylor, Jefferson Co., Kentucky.

I am beginning to doubt that George served in the US Army during WW I. It is more likely that he served with the Canadian Army.

Biography: During WW II she worked as a telephone operator on a military installation in Jackson, Mississippi. This is apparently where she met her second husband L. D.

Biography: According to her twin daughters, the family lived outside Lobelville, Tennessee on the Tate family farm on Lost Creek Road in School House Hollow from sometime after the wedding to L.D. Tate until sometime in 1953 when they moved to the old Walker house just outside Hughes Springs, Texas. They moved because of several years of crop failure and the financial failure of the gas station that L. D. and Clyde Poole operated.
