2Title:  Isaac Reid Papers     
 Creator:  Reid, Isaac 
 Dates:  1829-1862 
 Abstract:  Isaac Reid of Dromore Parish, County Down, Ireland, emigrated with his wife, Agnes, and his children to Cleveland, Ohio, in 1832. After living for several years in Cleveland, where he worked in a small business and boarded immigrants, the family purchased eighty acres in Newburgh, where they farmed and raised cattle, hogs, and sheep. Reid and his family were members of the First Presbyterian Society of Newburgh, he serving as both trustee and treasurer for several terms throughout the 1840s-1850s. His daughters were married in Newburgh; Mary Ann to Alvah Ruggles, and Elizabeth to George Dunbar, both in 1857. George Dunbar was employed by Reid as a laborer on his farm. Both Reid, his son-in-law George Dunbar, and his grandchildren remained in Newburgh after it became a part of Cleveland. Dunbar and his eldest sons were employed in the iron industry and in local businesses, while Reid lived on Harvard Street and was employed as a laborer. Isaac Reid died in 1886. The collection consists of a ledger/letterbook; receipts, a family register, and notes removed from that volume; notes and transcripts of the contents of the volume; and a Newburgh, Ohio, school register.
