ADDRESS: 4208 SW Beechwood Street, Ankeny, IA 50023
QUERY: I am searching for the ancestors of one John Reynolds born May 18, 1801 in Miflinville, Columbia County, PA and who died September 19, 1853 in Hublersburg, PA. John appears in the 1850 census in Walker Township, Centre County, PA listed with his wife, Lydia, and children: Lydia, Isaac, John, Joseph and Dewitt. His occupation was listed as "Coachmaker".

His death was certified by his son, Issac Newton Reynolds. Isaac and his brother eventually left Pennsylvania and settled in central Iowa. Both of them were blacksmiths.

John's father's name was also John and his mother was Catherine. (This information was provided on the death certificate.)

I have been a member of the RFA for several years and have not been able to identify a line to which I am related. If anyone has suggestions as to where I turn for assistance, please email me.

NAME: Weston Miller
QUERY: I am seeking information regarding my paternal lineage in the Reynolds family. My 3rd Great Grandfather was Samuel Reynolds (b. Oct 1825, Alabama; d. 1910, De Soto Parish, Louisiana) who I believe was the son of Samuel Kennerly Reynolds (b. 1805, Kentucky; d. 1860 Arkansas). I base this information off the 'Short and Imperfect History' by H.J. Reynolds, specifically: 'Uncle Samuel I think was the next one of grandpa's children [...] Sam, who died in Arkansas before the war'.

Samuel Kennerly Reynolds had another son named Sam who I am not able to find a record of birth or death for. I believe this Sam is my 3rd Great-Grandfather Samuel. The issue here is Mary J, his wife, would have been before child bearing age for this to be the case. Please contact me with any information about this line or if there is interest in my AncestryDNA records.

NAME: Bryant Hall
ADDRESS: 853 Willowdale Road
QUERY: I am attempting to find out some information regarding a Lansing Reynolds (I obtained the first name from his daughter's death certificate). I have only one listing of him, It is in the 1830 Census. At the time he lived in Pittsford, Monroe County, NY (Near Rochester, NY). The records for Pittsford were destroyed in a fire several years back. His wife's first name was Ruth, I do not know her last name, but I am told from my father that she was related to Ethan Allen of Vermont. Their daughter Susan J. Reynolds was my great great grandmother. She married Loami Beadle Hall. Susan was born 13 May 1835 in Pittsford, and died 28 Mar 1897 in Marengo, Wayne, NY. Lansing may have been born in the early 1790s. I would appreciate any help.

NAME: Melanie Nusbaum
ADDRESS: 304 Bay dunes Drive, Norfolk, Virginia, 23503
QUERY: Hello, I have been doing research on Robert Reynell/Reynolds for some time now and it has come to my attention that Robert Reynell and Thomasin Hatch DO NOT have a son named Robert. Their sons are John and Walter, John dies without children and Walters sons are: John, Nicholas, Edmond and Thomas.

I have seen this error maybe a thousand times and I am trying to correct it. I apologize if this seems rude, I do not mean it to be so.

If you visit this link, you can see the handwritten Pedigree that was taken as Pole was doing his research for his Visitation of Devonshire. Devonshire pedigrees : recorded in the herald's visitation of 1620, with additions from the Harleian manuscripts, and the printed collections of Westcote and Pole.
***the best way to flip pages is change the page number in the web address****

There also is a woman named Clarissa/Charrissa Huntington but she marries a Christopher Reynolds in 1813 in Mansfield, CT. She IS NOT the Daughter of Ann Hastings of Derby and Lord Stanley, their only daughter is Margaret. I keep seeing this error over and over again and I am very puzzled by it.
