I don't recall either, except that we spoke on the phone and you'd shared your Dotson family group sheets with me. I know there has been some speculation about your Mary Renno being related to my Amos, and also that there are some family members that believe Mary is part Cherokee. (if I'm remembering right)
BTW, there is some incorrect information about Amos' ancestry online at Sue Damewood's FamilyTreeMaker "Descendants of Louis Reynaud" site. I'd like to clear up a couple of things, just in case some Amos descendants come across this post.
Sue's information about Amos comes from someone in the George Lafayette Reno line, which has its foundation in the research of Gladys Bilbrey. Gladys asked family members to fill out group sheets and also had some help onsite at Madison County from Larry Bohannon. The results of this research was published as "Reno Families" by Mrs. G. F. Bilbrey and is the foundation for most of the Amos Reno descendancies found online. George Lafayette Reno is my Great Uncle. He is the one that shared Gladys' correspondence with my parents back in the late 1960's/early 1970's.
Here are my concerns about the information at Sue's website:
1. Although on the surface the information appears to be part of the Steven Fancy, Sue Damewood book, "Genealogy of the Reno/Reneau Family in America, 1600-1930" there is no mention of Amos or his descendants in the March 2007 edition of that book; they only appear on Sue's website.
2. Amos is attached to that Reno/Renaud tree without any evidence whatsoever as to his parentage.
3. Amos is recorded as Charles Amos. The origin for Amos being "Charles Amos" is that one of his grandsons was named Charles Amos Wardie Reno, and HE is said to have been named after his grandfather. I have yet to find Amos b. 1811/1812 recorded as anything other than Amos in Madison County documents.
