Joseph's marriage to Mary McAsey in 1927.

Joseph Reid was born in 1888 at Monasterevin in County Kildare. He was the son of a bricklayer and mason named John Reid and his wife Mary Cleary. The family lived at Coole, a hamlet in the townland of Coolnafearagh to the west of the town of Monasterevin. Joseph followed his father's trade, also becoming a bricklayer.

Joseph married Mary McAsey in Dublin in 1927, although they had grown up as neighbours at Coolnafearagh. When they married, he was about 39 and she 40. They did not have any children.
