      REYNOLDS Comander time out

      [Commander Hugh Reynolds; another line of investigation for the progenitor of the Hugh Reynolds lines of Lancaster, PA, Iredale, NC, Pittsylvania, VA and elsewhere with 37 marker DNA matches]
    • Hugh Reynolds of Iredell North Carolina is proven by dna to have been related to Hugh Reynolds of Pittsylvania Co., Virginia. Records located in the diaries of Rev. John Cuthbertson identify Hugh Reynolds and Margaret [Divin] and a certain George Reynolds, births of son and daughter (twins) 1751 4 Dec named John and Elizabeth. The only other Reynolds identified in this register; believe to have been related. No record for the marriage of George is found in these records. Perhaps George is a brother of Hugh; they are having children within 9 years of one-another. Also probably connected to this family is John, James and Hugh Reynolds, named in the Will of William Reynolds in Cecil Co., Maryland and Lancaster, PA. Hugh Reynolds of Iredale may be the Hugh Reynolds named in this will of William Reynolds. These individuals from the Eastern Shore.

      Hugh Reynolds Letters and Bio

      The Letters of Hugh Reynolds.

      The Iredell County Public Library holds a collection of letters to and from the Hugh Reynolds family from the late 1850s through the 1870s. These have been scanned and placed on Flickr along with the envelopes. In some cases we have scanned envelopes that did not contain letters when we received the collection.

      Hugh Reynolds, (April 18, 1809- Oct. 16, 1878) was the son of Hugh Reynolds Sr. and his second wife Margaret McClanahan. He and his brother Reuben were probably born at Davis? Sulfur Springs, near Hiddenite, Alexander County. His father was from Ireland and owned a grist mill and was a miller by trade. Hugh Sr. was named a Patriot in the Ancestor list of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution for giving 12 bushels of wheat to the patriot army during the Revolutionary War. Hugh Reynolds Sr. moved his family to Statesville in 1827. Hugh Reynolds Sr. is buried in the extreme Northwest corner of the Fourth Creek Presbyterian Cemetery in Statesville. The tombstone itself may now be illegible.

      Hugh Reynolds Jr. was married to Jane Reid (July 24, 1807 ? Oct. 11, 1887.) on Oct. 24, 1833. She dies at the age of 80 in the Olin Township in Iredell County at the home of her husband?s brother, Reuben Reynolds. Both Hugh and Jane are buried in the Fourth Creek Presbyterian Cemetery in Statesville. They had a daughter named Margaret ?Isabella? Reynolds. Hugh?s brother Reuben Reynolds (Dec. 24, 1813 ? Oct. 20, 1903) also had a daughter named Margaret. Reuben in buried in the Oakwood Cemetery in Statesville.

      Hugh Reynolds Jr. was a prominent merchant in Statesville serving as a county commissioner. A March 23, 1883 article in The Landmark newspaper stated that the whipping post outside the old jail was built in 1860 under the direction of Messrs. C.L. Summers and Hugh Reynolds. Hugh was also part of the building committee in charge of erecting the Presbyterian Church in Statesville in 1870.

      Family lore says that the Reynolds family divided over the issue of slavery with part of the family moving to Warren County, Illinois in the 1830?s and later to Oregon. Though he was too old to serve when the Civil War began the N.C. Presbyterian reported on June 28, 1862 that ?In Statesville on June 15, Capt. Wm. H. Sanford, age 30 years; commissary in 7th Regt., North Carolina Troops; received wound at battle of Newbern; died at house of Hugh Reynolds.?

      Hugh lived near the northwest corner of Broad and Tradd Streets near his brother-in-law W.F. Watts, on lot 39. Hugh Reynolds?s place later became the Palmer House and had a well on the property. Upon his death the Carolina Watchman newspaper out of Salisbury reported on Oct. 24, 1878, ?We regret to hear of the death of Mr. Hugh Reynolds of Statesville. We have known Mr. R. long and well. He was justly held in high esteem by his acquaintances, for he was not only just and liberal in all the relations of life, but incorruptible and fearless in duty. A good man has fallen.?

    2. [S40] Will, William Reynolds of Cecil Co., Maryland .
      Will of William Reynolds names son, Hugh Reynolds, James, John, and daughters, Jean, Mary, Eleanor, Phoebe, Martha, Agnes and Sarah. This Hugh Reynolds of Iredale, NC is traced by descendant, is a 37 marker DNA match to the descendant of Hugh of Pittsylvania County. A third 37 marker match is later found; no further information on that individual. Both Hugh of Iredale and Hugh Reynolds of Pittsylvania County are of the Presbyterian Faith; Quaker records found for a William Reynolds are not related to either of these Hugh Reynolds. Additionally, Hugh Reynolds of Pittsylvania County is married in Lancaster by the Rev. John Cuthbertson and recorded in his diary.

      Killed in the Civil War. His tombstone indicates that "he was in the 4th Regt of the NC State Troops. He was killed in the Battle of Seven Pines near Richmond. Aged 26 years." He was the son of Absalom Knox I and Isabella Falls Simonton. Absalom Knox Simonton II lived in Statesville with Robert F. and Roxanna Simonton in the 1850 census. Robert F. was a merchant. Absalom K. himself was 16 years of age in that census. (Note: Robert F. and Roxana Simonton were also shown in the 1860 census, where Robert was shown to be the Secretary and Treasurer of an unidentifyable railroad. Absalom was not shown with them in that census.) Absalom married Margaret Isabella Reynolds. They were supposedly the parents of three children. He was supposed to have been in a brick manufacturing business with a brother-in-law, Hugh Reynolds, before the war.
