There are several William REEDs in the database who might have been Helen's husband, with no way to be certain which one assuming he lived long enough to even be picked up in the SSDI.  John S. KEESEY is the only KEESEY at the 17963 zip code who gives promise of having been Helen's husband, but confirmation is needed.  There were too many male FISHERs at the 17963 zip code who might have been Edith's husband to hazard a guess which one he might have been.
