Yes! My mother's maiden name was Reynolds from the Virginia line of descendancy from John Reynolds and Millie Mabry of Floyd and Patrick Counties, Virginia.

And! It turns out that my Dad's g-grandmother was Demaras Reynolds, daughter of Rev War Veteran, Joseph Reynolds and his second wife, Nancy Ford of Pittsylvania County, Virginia.

I would like to present my second line of Reynolds; that of Joseph Reynolds and my maternal line of Reynolds may be viewed on this page:

Recently (2012) , doubts have been raised concerning the parentage of Rev war vet Joseph Reynolds (listed below). It is my opinion that more records would help clarify which Hugh Reynolds would be Joseph's father.

1. Demaras B. REYNOLDS was born 31 Oct 1809 in Pittsylvania Co VA, and died 13 Sep 1865 in Pittsylvania Co VA. She was buried in Adkins-Oakes Cem. Pittsylvania Co VA. She was the daughter of 2. Joseph REYNOLDS and 3. Nancy FORD. She married William Alexander NAPIER 21 Nov 1827 in Pittsylvania Co VA, son of William NAPIER and Elizabeth "Betsy" WITCHER. He was born ABT 1807 in Virginia, and died after 1880 in Stokes Co NC.
