Descendants of Hugh Reynolds


Generation No. 1

1. HUGH1 REYNOLDS died 1788 in Pittsylvania County, VA. He married
MARY NEELY, daughter of WILLIAM NEELY. She was born Bet. 1735 - 1745,
and died Aft. 1788 in Pittsylvania County, VA.

Notes for HUGH REYNOLDS:
[from Cheryl Nau Westmoreland 8.28.1999] "Hugh Reynolds had lived in the
area of Pie Creek and Tomahawk Creek in Virginia since at least 1766.
His requests for land patents [almost 1200 acres] are recorded in the
Land Entry Book, 1737-1770. He may not have received all of this land
but it proves he was living here in order to request surveys for this
land The deed books show that Hugh bought 57 acres of land on the south
side of Tomahawk Creek from Wm. Neely on 4 Nov 1774 and later purchased
105 adjoining acres from Killian Kreck.

Hugh Reynolds was exempted from levies in 1785, indicating his age or
infirmity; he was listed as not tithable on the 1787 tax list. He was
still alive in 1788 at the probate of Wm. Neeley's will. There is no
deed on record for the sale of Hugh's land; nor is there a will a court
order requiring inventory and appraisal, or an account of probate for
him.

Hugh is listed as giving non-military help during the American
Revolution. He is also listed as taking the Oath of Allegiance in 1777
in Pittsylvania County, VA."

Both Mary and her husband were alive when her father's will was probated
21 Jul 1788

According to census records, they were the parents of 7 or 8 children.
