QUERY: Hello, I am belgian and try to find out any informations about my mothers aunt and godmother. Her name was DAISY ALFREDA REGINA REYNOLDS; she is born on the 28 March 1888. I thought it was in United Kingdom, but...could be in the States as she came in contact with my familly during a travel between UK and US. She passed in Paris 18 august 1949. The official informations that I have are that her mother was called: CATHERINE HAAR and died young when Daisy was still a child.

Her third name: REGINA seems important, as she asked for my mother (her god daughter) to have that name too. So maybe there is a grand mother who would have been REGINA.

Any information would be most welcome thank you.

QUERY: Looking for a male Reynolds descendant of this family to participate in the Reynolds DNA study. Joseph B. REYNOLDS b ca 1750 prob Orange/Culpeper Co VA, died ca 1825 in what is now Roanoke Co VA, married Rachel --- Children: Susannah married Noah (Manoah) HAWKINS may be s/o ?William HAWKINS of Culpeper/Orange Co VA listed in 1783 Culpeper Co personal property tax list; Thomas married Mary LOVE, died in KY; Mary Rachel married Josiah MARTIN; Larkin married Hannah FERGUSON; John R. married Mary BAKER; Obediah R. married Sarah SMITH; William L. married Elizabeth CAMPBELL; and Sophia. I believe Joseph's father was Cornelius REYNOLDS b ca 1710 Essex Co VA, died ca 1756 Orange Co VA, his wife's name was Rachel. Cornelius is also mentioned in records in Caroline Co VA. I believe Cornelius' other children could be Richard REYNOLDS b ca 1740 married Catherine JOHNSTON MARTIN; Tabitha REYNOLDS married Jacob CARROLL in Orange Co VA "d/o Rachel REYNOLDS" on bond; Sarah REYNOLDS married Ralph COGWELL in Orange Co VA and maybe Aaron REYNOLDS married Caty CHAMBERS in Orange Co VA. Richard, Joseph and Aaron are listed together in the 1785 and 1786 Culpeper Co VA personal property tax lists. My Joseph REYNOLDS is NOT the Joseph who married Susannah WRIGHT and also lived in Orange Co VA.

QUERY: I am a descendent of Nathaniel Reynolds and Catherine Vernon. He was the son of William Reynolds and Elizabeth Mossom.
Nathaniel's son, William Robert, born 1790 married Susan Barnes. They had a son, Moses Barnes who had a son, Joseph Marion. Joseph Marion was my great-grandfather.
I have records for the generations down to my great-grandfather, but I have tried to find records for Moses and his father and for Nathaniel, the one who fought in the revolution. I have sent application in to the DAR who informs me they no longer accept the Tillman book. That is just lovely, as the courthouses seem to have all burned or they don't keep birth or death records for that far back.
Is it possible that any of you would have some documentation that would prove any of the relationships between Nathaniel and William Robert or William Robert and Moses? The censuses of the 1810's - 1840-s - the years they would be having families list only the numbers of people but no names besides the head of house. ANY help you could give would be sooooo appreciated.
Thank you --- Carole

ADDRESS: 807 Yellowstone Ave., Miles City, MT 59301
QUERY: Greetings,
I am trying to find information on my ancestor, William L. Reynolds who was born in Connecticut in 1800. I believe he lived in the Woodbury or Greenwich townships. He died in 1872 in Missouri and fought in the War of 1812. I am trying to track down who his parents were and am not having much luck. He was born in Connecticut but I see him in the 1820 census in New York state. He lived in Ohio, Indiana, and died in Mirabile, MO. I know some Reynolds moved from CT to NY and this is why I wonder the reason for being in the 1820 census. His wife's name was Diadama McClure Reynolds and she was born in Ohio. Thank your for any input you may have.

QUERY: Eli Reynolds (1733-1817) is my brick wall. He is buried in Kortright NY (Delaware County. I am descended from his son Nathan. I know of two other sons, Eli,Jr. and James. I know that Nathan was born in Horseneck in 1777 and from census records, Eli moved his family to Delaware County by 1890. Nathan named an infant son Justus. I have found a Eli with a Jeremiah Reynolds listed in Capt. Spencer's Company from Columbia Couty. There is family lore (from my great grandfather, Nathan's son Hiram, that Nathan or Eli owned land adjoining that of Martin VanBuren in Dutchess County, Kinderhook. I find that Jonathan Reynolds and Nevill Rideware had sons named Jeremiah and Nathan. James Reynolds and Sarah Holmes had sons named Justus and Jeremiah. I realize that I am grasping at straws, but could my Eli be a child of either family?

QUERY: I am a descendant a Capt John Reynolds and his wife Margaret Smith Reynolds ( the hero of the book Frontier Mother) who were both recognized patriots by the DAR. I am working on a DAR app for my grandau and need some help with source info re the death date and place of their son Joseph ( the 13 yr old son captured by the Indians related in Frontier Mother).

By several unsourced accounts from ancestor.com from Reynolds families his death is listed as 1 Mar 1809 in Screven Co. Georgia and I have clear info that he was still alive there in February 1809. I would appreciate any info re when he moved his family to Ga from Washington Co MD after the 1800 census there. Also my lineage runs through his son William H. who was born in Nov 1801 and died in Thomas Co. Ga in 1861 (known), although I don't have any info on his early childhood years apparently as a step child of an Atton Pemberton and ??
With that info I will be able to send our family tree to the RFA along with my application.

QUERY: I have found the gravesite of my fourth great-grandmother, Phillipa Reynolds (Gardner), born in 1771 and died in Henrietta, Monroe County, NY in 1842. She married a Caleb Gardner. My family records show that she is the daughter of Elisha Reynolds. I'm just not sure which Elisha is her father. There is an Elisha Reynolds, of Stephentown, NY, whose will, in 1817, mentions a daughter, Phillipa Gardner. But, the problem is that many Reynolds families on Ancestry.com that list Elisha mention a daughter Phillipa Reynolds, who died in 1859. I'm not sure I'm on the right track. I believe our Reynolds family did originate in Rhode Island, moved to Stephentown area and then Monroe County NY. I just wish the Reynolds family records were more clear. Can anyone help?
