I am looking for the REYNOLDS surname from Sussex Co., DE. We have a Richard Reynolds b. in the state of DE.-abt. 1780 who moved toFairfield Co., OH. We have no family for him, or know nothing about him. He had a son William D. Reynoldsb. in Fairfield Co., OH. on 15 March, 1812.
I found a will, on Ancestry.com, for a Richard Reynolds- b. abt 1735 who was first married to a Nancy Pettyjohn, then married a Anne---? This Richard's will-probate date was 24 Nov., 1791, in Sussex Co. His children were Zachariah, Benjamin, Bowen, Richard, James, Elizabeth, Hannah, (Agnes-m. to Jonathan ADDISON), and Eunice PETTIT- w/oJacob Pettit, who later married Jesse DUTTON.
Agnes and Jonathan ADDISON- moved to Muskingum Co., OH. Eunice and Jesse Dutton- moved to Delaware Co.,OH, then to Marion Co., OH.
We do not know if our Richard, is the son Richard mentioned in this will. Also would there be a first name of the desceasedRichard's wife "Anne"- mentioned in this will? Would your source tell of a buriallocation for the deceased Richard thatdied in 1791?
Also would there possibly be a will for the Anne Reynolds w/o Richard Reynolds? It is possible she died within the time frame you have.
