QUERY: I have hit a dead end at my 5th great grandparents and am hoping you can help.

I am searching for the parents of Sarah 'Sallie' Reynolds, born April 8, 1796 in Tennessee. She married Abraham Hawk on Nov 28, 1815 in Hawkins County, Tennessee (Joab Brewer signed for her). She died Feb 7, 1858 in Tennessee and since she is buried in the Lee Cemetery, McDonald, Bradley County, Tennessee I assume she died nearby. I can find no hint of her parents.

Abraham Hawk was born Sep 7, 1790 most likely in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He died Mar 1, 1854 in Knox County, Tennessee and is buried in the Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee.

Most people show Abraham's father as John Hawk born 1750 in Virginia and that he probably died about 1835 in Looneys Creek, Hardy County, West Virginia. His mother is supposedly Catherin Switzer born about 1769 and died possibly June 5, 1822 in Looneys Creek, Hardy County, West Virginia. I can find no absolute proof they were Abraham's parents.

ANY assistance tracing Sarah Reynolds is greatly appreciated.

If this is any help, my Gedmatch is A243610.
I match A374231 at 4.9
I match A179699 at 4.9

They are the only Reynold's surname matches I have, there of course could be others not listed as Reynolds.

Thank you so much!

QUERY: I'm looking for information on Caleb Reynolds born @ 1772 in Westchester county NY, son of Henry Reynolds. Specifically, are there any records showing that he fought with Jackson in New Orleans, War of 1812. All I have been able to find is The History of Sullivan County by Quinlin, which states he left to go to New Orleans but was never heard from again. Thank you for any information you can share.

QUERY: : Hi - I found your website online and really enjoyed reading the information.

I am the great grandson of James Newton Fodge and Sophia Ann Travis Reynolds. My grandfather was John Marvin "Bishop" Fodge (JN's second son) and my father was Frank Fodge (Bishop's son). I never met JN or my grandfather Bishop as they both passed away before I was born. I was recently contacted by a Great-Great Granddaughter of JN Fodge, who is Arthur Aaron Fodge's Great-Grandaughter.

Although this is the Reynolds family website you seem to have a lot of information on Sophia's husband's family (James Newton Fodge). Very interesting reading. Thanks for sharing.

QUERY: My 3 x great-grandfather was James Reynolds, b. 1803 (supposed to be in Culpeper, VA) and died July 1861 (This part is for sure) at the Battle of Scary Creek, Barboursville, WV. At that time the family was living in Cabell County, VA (WV). Many trees have his father listed as a James Madison Reynolds b. abt. 1778 in Richmond, VA and dying in October 1860 in Northampton, VA. Geographically speaking, I'm not sure that makes sense but could be possible. If you have any information about this family, I would greatly appreciate it. It has been one of my brick walls for a long time. Thank you.

QUERY: I have just joined this group, so please forgive my fairly recent ancestry query: I have been unable to follow my Reynolds family any farther back than 1821. William Reynolds (abt 1821-1885) was born in PA, presumably married Sarah Miller in PA, and had the following children before moving to Ohio: Martha 1843; Nathaniel 1845; Alfred 1847; John 1848; Sammuel 1850; James 1852; Lamena 1853; Henry or Wm Henry 1856. In 1857, the family moved to Milton Township Ohio and had their daughter Elizabeth (and maybe Sophia Brien) I have no idea about William Reynolds' parents or siblings. I have seen suggestions of a Joseph and John Reynolds who settled in the US in 1725, but I am at a wall as to where my William Reynolds originated. William Reynolds, B: abt 1821 (PA) D: 1885 (Hocking County, Ohio) Any leads are appreciated, particularly those in PA. Thanks, Diane

QUERY: Joseph Reynolds, my 5th great grandfather (July 9, 1749 - December 25, 1823) served in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. This is according to information I have, attributed to documents from the 39th and 40th (1930 and 1931) Reynolds Family Association. My information says that Joseph Reynolds was in the 4th Regiment, Albany County, New York Militia. However, I've only been able to find internet documentation of a Joseph Reynolds in the 2nd Regiment, New York. I'm trying to determine if my ancestor was actually in the 2nd Regiment and not the 4th Regiment. Thanks in advance for your assistance!

QUERY: I am interested in contacting the administrator of line 045, Joseph Chatten Reynolds. Are they sure of the middle name? That name has been repeated before in the descendants of Richard Spencer Reynoldsn(d GA 1788). The middle name comes from Anne Chattin, wife of George Doggett, the parents of Richard's wife, Sarah Ann Doggett. One of his grandsons, my ancestor was also named Joseph Chatten Reynolds, Jr. - he was born in Georgia in 1793 and died in Muhlenberg County Kentucky in 1868. Both the Chatten name and the Doggett name were passed down in the family. Although the proof is circumstantial, it's substantial.

Please contact me as I am working with other descendants to trace the sons of Richard Spencer Reynolds when they left Georgia at the beginning of the 19th century.
