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.

    Gender  Male 
    • 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

      -There are two William Reynolds here; William 'of Culpepper' is the elder and the young man William Reynolds is the grandson of William Nealey and the son of Hugh Reynolds and Mary Nealey.
      -William 'of Culpepper' Reynolds died in 1791, so the two entries in this record in 1791 and 1792 may apply (probably do) to the elder William or his son, William. The William of Culpepper family lived on the opposite side of the County; to date, 2013, there is no evidence that the two Reynolds families are related or intermarried.
