Meader's son, John is a nurseryman and he would have the true Reliance. 
  Though I don't believe he sells anything by mail.  Can you verify that

Originally, some folks propagated Reliance from seed. These various

propagated by budding and sold as Reliance. It has been said. Beware. 
Meader made a
good peach, but the on-going theory that peaches are true to type has 
created
confusion.
Those with good-tasting Reliance should send budwood to those who do 
not have good
tasting Reliance. The dieing in cold weather is due to unhardy 
rootstock, as a
hardy peach on unhardy rootstock in pointless. Own-root your Reliance!
