I am do a census study on the Reynolds Family in the southeast quadrant (ten counties) of Alabama.While setting up the files for Houston County, I came across a George W. REYNOLDS; b: Abt 1863 with wife Elizabeth in the Wicksburg area on the 1930 census.I then discovered the death certificate for Elizabeth Reynolds in Newton, Houston County in 1940 and it states she was a widow.
I believe this to be the same George Washington Reynolds Jr that is on the 1900 Newton, Dale County census with wife Vickey and sons Jesse and John (My Grandfather).Vickey died 1908 in Marianna, Jefferson County, Fl and I have not found him on any census after 1900 until finding the info on the 1930 census.
While this information finalized the information on GWR Jr I have yet to discover positively his parents but feel, from other info concerning Victoria CARTER (First Wife), that he was born in Montgomery County possibly to G W Reynolds who is the son of William Glenn Reynolds, brother of Elijah Reynolds.However, so far I have found no information on the G W Reynolds of Montgomery County other than a couple of censuses.
I there anyone researching the William Glenn REYNOLDS family that has any information on George Washington REYNOLDS of Montgomery County?
My grandfather was John Thomas REYNOLDS Sr; born 13 May 1896 Newton, Dale County, Alabama; died 27 Aug 1976 Avon Park, Highlands County, Florida and married Mamie Irene BRANNON of Wicksburg, Houston County, Alabama 30 Jun 1918.
This GWR Jr is not to be confused with the one that married Mamie POSEY in Dale County in 1906 as he was not born until ten years after the above GWR Jr.If anyone has these two connected, PLEASE disconnect them with GWR Jr born 1862 as brickwalled at this point.
