This biography appears to be the same James Reed- was he married twice??

Zachariah Reed, of Richmond, VA., married Margaret Cockrell, by whom he had five sons and five daughters. They left Virginia and settled in Kentucky, where they lived for many years. Their son James, who was a coppersmith, married Susan **Williford, and settled in Boone Co., MO., in 1826, and in Audrain County in 1834, where he still lives, in his eighty seventh year. He served in the War of 1812, under Isaac Shelby, in Canada. He had two sons and seven daughters.
