Signed John Spotswood & Richard Reynolds; wit. Robert Spotswood, W. McWilliams, F. Fox, rec. 28 aug 1760.

      Another researcher with whom I'm working believes this was a lease that included Spencer and George, the two young sons of Richard, in order to maximize the term of the lease.

      Also, in Orange Co. VA court records dated March 29 1754,
      Richard Reynolds is named as a defendant in a lawsuit, and George Doggett is providing securities for Richard. I believe, as indicated in my earlier posting, that Richard married Sarah Ann Doggett, not Sarah Hamilton; this suggests that perhaps father-in-law George Doggett was providing securities for his son-in-law in this suit.

      Although there appear to be transactions in both Orange Co. and Culpeper Co. VA records, it looks as though this Richard may have owned land on Cedar Run in Culpeper Co.

    • http://genforum.genealogy.com/reynolds/messages/9805.html

      Served in the Revolutionary War with Thomas Henderson's Company of the Virginia State Line. According to Page 187 of the 1983 edition of Virginia Military Records, Richard Reynolds, 32, was the first individual listed as a member of this company of the Henry County, Virginia, Militia. Bartlett Reynolds was only other Reynolds listed with the Militia as a member of James Dillard's Company.
      General Order was issued by Col. Abram Penn, dated March 1781. Colonel Abram was the commander of the Militia from Henry County, preparatory to the battle of Guilford C. H. in North Carolina which took place on March 14-15. Col Penn was "ordered to march the Militia to Hillsborough, NC, or any post where General Stevens may be with the men under his command, observing to avoid a surprise by the enemy, by the best route to be found."
      The Battle of Guilford's Courthouse and Revolutionary War events leading up to it are summarized in the following excerpt from Grolier's Encyclopedia: " As the guerrillas tied down Cornwallis, still a third American army formed in the South under Maj. Gen. Nathanael Greene, who then launched the most effective military campaign of the war. Greene's basic plan was to keep his numerically superior antagonist, Cornwallis, off balance by a series of rapid movements and by cooperating with the South Carolina guerrilla leaders. Greene audaciously divided his small army, sending Brig. Gen. Daniel Morgan into western South Carolina, where he destroyed Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton's Tory Legion at Cowpens (Jan. 17, 1781). When Cornwallis pursued Morgan, Greene united his army, led Cornwallis on an exhausting chase into North Carolina, and finally fought him to a draw at Guilford Courthouse (Mar. 15, 1781). While the British general limped eastward and then northward to the Virginia coast, the resourceful Greene returned to South Carolina, and between April and July picked off, one by one, every British post save Charleston and Savannah, where the enemy remained isolated and impotent until peace came. "
      It is not known whether the Virginia troops arrived in time to participate in the battle. This is the only mention of Richard Reynolds, Henderson's Company, or the Henry County Militia found to date.
      Prior to the war Reynolds lived an extended period in North Carolina, to which he returned after the war. How long he lived in Henry County, Virginia, is not known. It appears that most of the couple's 15 children were born in Virginia, if the birthdates are reasonably accurate. He died in Wilkes Co., Georgia
    • Spencer Reynolds was in born Henry County, Virginia. Spencer died 1830 in Williamson County, Tennessee. He is buried at the Reynolds Family cemetery in that county at Riggs Crossroads.
      His Will is on file in Williamson County, Tennessee. Issue: Richard C.; Green; Nancy, who married Kennerly; George Washington; Sally; Catherine, who married Barber; Coleman, born 1785; Spencer, born 1800; Elizabeth, who married Barber; Reuben, born 1784; Matilda, who married Durham; Phebe, who married Thomas Smith; and William C.

      Last Will of Richard Reynolds
      Will Written: 3 Apr 1793
      Probate 17 Sep 1793 by David Ferrell, R.P.
      Admr: Thomas Reynolds; Administered by Sarah Ann Reynolds [nee Doggett], sole Executrix, decd] in Wilkes Co. GA. He married SARAH ANN DOGGETT, daughter of GEORGE DOGGETT and ANN CHATTIN of Culpeper Co VA. No marriage record but circumstantial evidence supports this conclusion. This family lived in Orange and Culpeper Cos. of VA, before migrating to Pittsylvania/Henry Cos. of VA, then on to Wilkes Co. GA by 1780s. Sarah Ann Doggett Reynolds died abt. 1793 in Wilkes Co. GA. Have not established parentage of Richard Reynolds -- likely one of the Reynolds families seen in Spotsylvania or Orange Cos. VA in 1720-1750 range. Thomas, Benjamin and Joseph Reynolds, sons of Richard and Sarah Ann Reynolds were in western KY by 180, after brief layovers in Oglethorpe, then Jackson Cos. of GA before moving to KY. Thomas and Benjamin appear on the first Hopkins Co. KY tax
      Children of RICHARD REYNOLDS and SARAH Ann DOGGETT are:
      >
      > i. My direct ancestor:THOMAS2 REYNOLDS, b. Abt. 1766?(acc. to Tillman's book); d. 1831, Hopkins Co. KY. (Married probably Martha "Patsy" Crowley, d/o Benjamin Crowley and Sarah Strong). Descendants remained more or less in Hopkins/Webster Cos. of western KY.
      >
      > ii. BENJAMIN REYNOLDS, (married Nancy LNU), b. Bet. 1760 - 1770, VA; d. Abt. 1844, Wabash Co., IL.

      >
      > iv. GEORGE REYNOLDS, (m. Susannah Lansford 1779 in Henry Co. VA) b. Abt. 1754, VA; lived in Henry and Pittsylvania Cos of VA until about 1808, d. Abt. 1813, Williamson Co. TN.
      >
      > v. RICHARD REYNOLDS. Nothing more known except he is listed as an heir of Richard Reynolds in Wilkes Co. GA estate papers.
      >
      > vi . ELIZABETH REYNOLDS. (Betsey Reynolds mentioned in Richard Reynolds' Wilkes Co. estate papers) m. Joel Morton 1796 in Oglethorpe Co. Ga. Joel left 1839 will in Clarke Co. GA. Betsey living in Clarke Co. GA at 1850 census age 77, with daughter Tabitha Dean.
      >
      > vii. SPENCER REYNOLDS, m. Phebe Waggoner, d/o Greensby Waggoner. B. abt. 1750, Orange or Culpeper Co. VA; d. Abt. 1830, Williamson Co. TN. Spent time in between in Pittsylvania/Henry Cos of VA, Wilkes/Oglethorpe/Clarke Cos GA before moving on to TN.
      >
      > viii. JOHN REYNOLDS. Listed as heir in Richard Reynolds's Wilkes Co. GA estate papers, nothing more known.
      >
      > ix. MARY REYNOLDS, m. JOSEPH FORTUNE who left 1784 will in Pittsylvania Co. VA. Remarried to Hezekiah Salmon after Joseph Fortune's death.
      >

      >
      > xi. UNKNOWN REYNOLDS d. probably Wilkes County GA, married CATY JAMES. Orphaned children Aaron (b. 1786) and Moses Reynolds (b. abt. 1785) went to Hopkins Co. KY with their guardian (and probable uncle) Thomas Reynolds by 1807.

    2. [S84] Rootsweb, http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/REYNOLDS/2005-03/1110051798.
      Very unlikely. Richard and Sarah Ann Reynolds' eldest sons, Spencer and George, were born abt. 1750 and 1754 respectively. Therefore the birthdates commonly seen for Richard and Sarah Ann are simply impossible. The 1758 will of George Doggett (wife was Ann Chattin/Chatten) in Culpeper Co VA names Sarah Ann "Rynnolds" as an heir. Chatten Doggett, Sarah Ann's brother, and Humphrey Scroggin, Sarah Ann's brother in law, appear in GA about the same time as Richard Reynolds and his family. Richard Reynolds' line contains a grandson named "Joseph Chatten Reynolds" (migrated to Muhlenberg-Hopkins-Graves Co. KY) -- which strengthens the George Doggett connection.

      My opinion is that because there was a Hamilton Reynolds in Wilkes Co. GA about the same time as Richard's family, and due to mixups between two separate Reynolds families in that area at the same time (there's a George in THAT line too), someone decided Sarah Ann must have been a Hamilton.
      I've also seen her referred to as Sarah Ann Thomas - and who knows where that came from.

      There is a 1754 document in Orange Co. VA: "Indenture 6 Jul 1754 bet. John Spotswood & Richard Reynolds for rents & covenants hereinafter mentioned, to farm lett 200 ac. Natural lives of RICHARD, SPENCER, AND GEORGE REYNOLDS, or longest liver, 1000 lbs tobacco. Signed John Spotswood & Richard Reynolds; wit. Robert Spotswood, W. McWilliams, F. Fox, rec. 28 aug 1760" Apparently there was a practice in which men would name minor sons as parties to these kinds of land leases - you will note the phrase "or longest liver" -- so the assumption was the land would pass to the eldest sons.

      Another Orange Co VA document: "County Court dated March 29 1754. Robert Duncanson plt. against RICHARD REYNOLDS, deft. In Debt. This day came Plt.by his Attorney and GEORGE DOGGETT, Security for Deft.'s appearance by Zachary Lewis, Gent., his Attorney and the Security prays and has oyer of the Writing Obligatory in the Declaration mentioned and to imparle thereof till next Court and then to plead." It appears that George Doggett, Richard's father in law, was acting as security for his son-in-law.

      Culpeper Co. VA: Aug 21 1770: Richard Reynolds of Culpeper & Sarah Anne his wife sold to Alexander McDonald, 114 ac on Cedar Run, purchased by Richard from trustees of the estate of John Spotswood.

      Becky, I am 99.9% certain that Richard Reynolds & Sarah Ann Doggett had two other children not listed in your file. One is Matthew Reynolds b. probably 1781-1786 Wilkes Co., GA & married Elizabeth Jarrell 21 Dec 1808 Wilkes Co., GA. The other is Rachel Reynolds who married Thomas Matthews on 11 Nov 1799 Wilkes Co., GA. I think Rachel was probably deceased shortly after her marriage or at least by around 1802. She was listed as Runnels but a lot of Reynolds family were also listed as Runnels in the Wilkes Co. records. This is the documentation:
