Israel Reed son of William and Polly Reed

I think I have found Israel Reed, but I don't know for sure. Too tired tonight to sort it out, so I'm going to copy the links here and I'll come back to it later.

1850 Census:
Married and living in New York

1860 Census
Living in Wisconsin, born in New York. Last name spelled "Read." But children's names and ages match

Find a Grave in Iowa

Wife Ann's headstone in Tama Iowa

1870 Census
Both Israel and Ann are dead. Found James living in Tama

Son James married in Iowa: but, marriage record identifies his father's name as Jared not Israel.
