      Eliza REED (Rose GAINES , ) was born in 1812 in Washington County, AL. She died in 1902 in Washington County, AL. She was buried in Charity Chapel Cemetery, Charity Chapel, AL. Eliza Reed had children by (1) Daniel (Bolar or Boland) REID; (2) Francis (or Francois) PARGADE (or PARGADO or PAGANDE); and (3) Peter COLE. On the 1850 census, she appears as a Reed, on the 1860 census, as a Pagande. On the 1850 census, she is listed along with Peter Cole, each under their own surname, in the same household. (It is suggested that it was the Indian way for women to retain their maiden name and for their children to also retain the mother's name.). On the 1850 census, Eliza and Peter Cole are shown in the same household, leaving to question why Eliza would be listed as a Pagande on the 1860 census. She and all her children are shown as PAGANDEs on the 1860 census and Peter COLE is not listed. A land patent on plots neighboring son Seaborn Reid's homestead in Charity Chapel, AL, was issued to Eliza Reed in 1895.Eliza married (probably under common law standards only) (1) Daniel (Bolar or Boland) REID. There is not a significant body of information regarding this person, and that which does exist is oral tradition, not consistent from researcher to researcher. Woodrow Wallace Sr., a descendant who has researched this family extensively, says that, according to Uncle Abb Cole, a blind preacher (grandson of Eliza Reed and Peter Cole), who lived at Charity Chapel until his death at 100 in 1996, this person's name was Bolar or Boland Reid and that he began living with Eliza when she was a girl of 16 or 17, fathering Seaborn and an older brother, Thomas. The same person was identified as ?Daniel? by the author?s father, Charlie Reid (in notes discovered 20 years following his 1983 death), a great grandson of Eliza Reid. It is believed that Charlie Reid would have also obtained that name from Abb Cole, to whom he often talked when visiting his (Charlie?s) half-brother, who also lived in Charity Chapel, AL. One rationale for the different name is that Charlie Reid would have spoken to Abb in the 1940s and 1950s, at a time when Abb was a younger man than the over-80 year old man that Wallace talked to in the 1970s, but from all reports there was no problem with Abb Cole?s recollection to the end of his life. Another rationale was that there was no such person at all and the story of his existence hides some other more unpleasant family secret. The name ?Bolar? was used by Ernestine Thompson, another descendant, but she stated in correspondence that she got that name from Wallace, and had reason to believe that it was incorrect. Ernestine?s grandmother told her that Eliza had been kidnapped and taken west across the Mississippi River by white men seeking to collect a ?head tax? for each Indian brought west (apparently during the Trail of Tears era), then subsequently escaped from her captors (by killing two) and making her way back to Washington County. In all three versions, Daniel/Bolar apparently deserted Eliza for parts unknown. Charlie Reid?s notes state ?grandpa Daniel left Lizer (sic) Ann and took him a squaw and his gun and said he was going to Arkinsaw (sic).? (The notes indicate Charlie Reid believed that Daniel Reid only went as far as Newton County, MS, due to the later moving of a large number of Reids from there into Forrest County, MS, during his lifetime. Apparently, he saw a resemblance to himself in these relocating Reids.) Wallace?s notes merely say he "moved on." Ernestine Thompson says that Daniel/Bolar was in Pensacola on a cattle-buying trip when Eliza was kidnapped and did not return until after her escape and return (following which she literally ?hid out? on an island where the family lived). He apparently was ?not happy? with the situation, unhappy enough to ?split up? with Eliza. Among her family of descendents, a story is told suggesting that ?Bolar? and Peter Cole may have been one and the same person, with ?Bolar? just having hid out for wrong doing of his own in this period.On the 1870 Washington County census, no entry was found for Eliza under any name. Nor was an entry for Thomas, Seaborn, any of the Coles (from her third marriage), Nathaniel Smith (who with Seaborn founded the community of Charity Chapel, just inside Washington County north of Mobile County), or any of their children. It is speculation, but one believed by this author that these family members had removed to the area around Charity Chapel around the time the census was taken, and that they were simply missed, but they may have been on the Mobile County census. Matte states that Seaborn first purchased land in Charity Chapel in 1871 (the same tract of land that has been identified in a Land Accession by the Land Bureau - see entry under Seaborn Reid). Eliza was not found in the Soundex listing for 1880 census reports, which might have been due to the absence of school age children in the household.Daniel (or Bolar/Boland) and Eliza had the following children: +11 Mi Thomas REID was born about 1830. He died about 1900. +12 Mii Seaborn REID was born in Oct 1835. He died between 1900 - 1910. Eliza married (2) Francis PAGANDE or Pargade or Pargado. Francis died in 1838. They had the following children: 13 FiiiCelestine PARGANDE Twin was born in 1837. She died young. +14 Fiv Florentine PARGANDE Twin was born in 1837. Eliza married (3) Peter COLE son of Mark COLE and Hannah SIPSEY. Peter was born in 1814. They had the following children: 15 MvJames COLE was born in 1843 in Washington County, AL. 16 FviArmenia COLE was born in 1850. 17 FviiLucinda COLE was born in 1854. 18 MviiiFrank COLE was born in 1858.
