News: Looking for females who are in the pure female lines (mother to daughter) from William and Sarah who are willing to do an mtDNA test. Such a person would be descended along an all female line from Mary DEVIN Biggers or Margaret DEVIN Reynolds. The hope is to identify the markers for Sarah SMITH Devin to help identify her parents. Contact the webmaster if interested.

    Notes 
    • MARRIAGES: Pittsylvania Co VA records
    • 1820 VA Census Pittsylvania County Series M33, Roll40, page 132, shows Joseph, Joseph Jr., Robert, William and Hiram Collins (husband of Matilda, Joseph's daughter with Nancy Ford), i.e., Joseph (married to Nancy Ford in 1820), Joseph Jr. (Peggy Devin's son), William (son of Peggy Devin, husband of Nancy Blair), Robert, (Robert Devin, son of Peggy Devin and husband of Susanna Carter) Hiram Collins married Matilda Reynolds, daughter of Nancy Ford and Joseph Reynolds.
    • Oaths of Allegiance 1777 Pittsylvania County, Virginia
      NOTE: Hugh Reynolds and his son Joseph are found on this 1777 list. Hugh's son William, is not. Joseph's Baptism of 15 Aug 1759 gives us his age. If William is the younger son, he may not have been of 'age' at this time. I suspect 16, may have been the age for boys to give their OATH. If so, we may suppose that William, s/o Hugh did not become of 'age' in 1777. William is shown on court records in 1788 when he inherits the land of his grandfather, William Neeley. Both Joseph and William are Qualified as Executors (Book 6/170 Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Court Records 1787-91)
      Another record dated 22 Mar 1796 for William Reynolds and Charles Lewis must be our William, as the other William Reynolds of Culpepper has died in 1791. No connecton has been documented for William of Culpepper having any connection to the Hugh Reynolds family. -Mary Frances Reynolds

    Name:
    • Joseph Reynolds is also found with the middle initial of "D." Grandchildren are named Joseph David, presumably after Joseph Senior.
      William Nealy left all the rest of his estate to Joseph who is probably the older brother of William Reynolds who inherited William Nealey's land.
