Harriet Reid Bowen's sister, Jane

The woman in the above photograph is Jane Reid Pritchard, sister of Harriet Amandaville Reid Bowen. The Reid sisters were two of twelve children - all daughters - born to South Carolina natives Joseph Reid and Dorothy Philadelphia "Delphia" Littlejohn who moved to Pontotoc County about 1845. As far as I know, only daughter Harriet moved to Itawamba County after her marriage to William Elisha Bowen.

Jane Campbell Reid married Robert J. Pritchard on February 12, 1867. They made their home in Pontotoc County and are buried at Bethel Cemetery. One of Jane and Robert's descendants shared the photograph with me. Thanks, Ginny!
