Carlos L. Reed was born on October 15, 1875 in Zanesville, Ohio and married Laura Alice Glyn Reed (born August 29, 1880 in Trego County, Kansas) on August 1, 1900 in Topeka, Kansas. Carlos and Laura had four daughters, Gladys Leona Reed Dickson (1901-1946), Mabel Louise Reed Tanner (1903-1950), Dorothy Mildred Reed (1909-1934) and Kathleen Bernice Reed Wickham (1917 - ). Per the family history, Carlos helped his mother raise his seven siblings by selling papers and "blacking boots" after his father abandoned them in 1887. In 1910, Carlos and Laura moved to Garden City, Kansas. He was a farmer whose mortgage was foreclosed on during the Great Depression, after which time he worked for the WPA. Carlos died on June 23, 1953 in Colton, California. Laura died on December 8, 1959.
