About James Reno, Sr.

The list of names of Zeley Reno's children is incomplete, being based entirely on baptismal records between 1811 and 1818 and his will, which does not mention all of his children. Older children, such as sons James and Benjamin born before 1810, might have moved away before the family joined these churches.

William L. Reno, Jr. (1975, "The Reno Family", addendum 2) argues based on pre-1850 census records, the ages of individuals involved, and geographical opportunity that Zeley Reno probably had two or three additional sons born between 1775 and 1790: James, John, and Benjamin, who appear later in records of Kentucky and Indiana.
