  • Notes 
    • 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
    • Diary of Rev John Cuthbertson 1751-1791 records Marriage of Hew Reynolds and Mary ? at Wm. Nieley's and later the Baptism of Joseph son to Hew Reynolds.

    • Slaves of Joseph Reynolds are named as follows: Eliza Seamore; Charles Seamore, David B., Richard and Rob.
