I am looking for information on my Great Grandfather James Wellington Reynolds b. 1Feb.1854 in Scranton, PA. The county was Luzerne County at that time. His father was John Reynolds of PA and mother Martha or Matilda Wing of NY.
Rumor has it that the family may have come from PA>KY>IL>IO>MN in its migration west. It is also suggested that Mc used to be attached to the front of the Reynolds name. It is also rumored that the children might have been orphans. One last rumor it is thought that James and a brother George went into the Dakota territory and George left for somewhere in the south.
