Reider Family Genealogy

A look at the ancestors of Mark Edward Reider & Christie Lee Underwood Reider


 In 1974, I was tasked to study my family in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and compare their movements or actions to the time period of U.S. History. This would be a "Senior Thesis" prior to my graduation from college. I knew little about my family and so set out (with the help of my brother Jack and my mother) to uncover a bit of Reider/Heath family history. In the 40+ years since that time, I have endeavored to learn more about my ancestors and have added the ancestors of my wife (Underwood/Denaple) as well. In that regard I am carrying on the work of of my wife's mother and her late aunt who have been researching their lines.  I also want to thank Herr Martin Dilger (a 4th cousin!) for all of his help in German research and translating German church records.

It has been a labor of love which is far from complete. The first four links below take you to brief biographies of the main families.

The last two links have the bulk of the data.
