    Notes 
    • It has been the common understanding, that George Reynolds, the head of our line, was from Pennsylvania, or his father was. It is very probable that he and other members of the family came to Virginia and lingered awhile in Orange county, Va, about the year 1754, as there appears a record of a lease of land to Richard Reynolds from John Spottswood during the lives of Richard Spencer and George Reynolds. We have no verification of this George being our ancestor, but we find the names of Richard and Spencer in the Census 1782-85 of Pittsylvania county, VA, and our ancestor, George Reynolds, living and marrying in the same community in 1779. in 1809, or about that time, our ancestor moved to Williamson county, Tenn, and we find a Richard and a Spencer Reynolds also residents of the same county, indicating that the influence of relationship influenced them to make their homes in the same localities.
      In the ninth annual report of the Virginia State Library, we find the following record: "George Reynolds, 1st Lieutenant, commissioned August 1780, by court, under P. Hairston, from Henry Va., Caroline county." We feel justified in believing that this is our ancestor, the Caroline county being the only confusing factor that raises any doubt. Georg Reynolds, of our line, was a resident of Henry county, Va., at the time, and P Hairston was also living in Henry, or just across the line in Pittsylvania county, and, so far as possible to ascertain, there is no Henry in Caroline county, Va. The records at Bowling Green, the county seat of Caroline, were destroyed, making it impossible to verify the fact.
      About 1809, George Reynolds moved to Williamson Co, TN. Two of his daughters, Elizabeth and Susanna having married Richard and James Hughes, and I take it that these families and the Pryors, Stones, Perkins and others, went at the same time. Our ancestor died in Williamson county, TN, about 1813.
    • "George Reynolds, 1st Lieutenant, comissioned August 1780, by court, under P. Hairston, from Henry Va., Caroline county."
      His and neighboring families removed to Williamson County, TN about 1809.
