According to S.F. Tillman, John Francis Reynolds the First settled in Wilkes County, North Carolina.This is the account that I am presuming in this genealogy. However, There is another account that says John Reynolds, father of Elisha, was born 1699 in England and emigrated to the U.S. in 1740. Both accounts claim that John Reynolds married Rebecca Jenkins. The latter account comes from a book entitled "REYNOLDS FAMILIES OF ALABAMA AND ILLINOIS", and includes a son named Jenkins. Tillman does not mention him, but there are Wilkes County marriage records in 1802 and 1804 for a Jinkin Reynolds.File C.R. 104.508, Wilkes Estate Records, NC Archives states that Francis Reynolds (I assume this is John Francis II) was appointed administrator of the estate of John Reynolds, deceased(I assume this is John Francis I) At that time, Wilkes was Rowan County.
- The Narragansett Historical Register, Volume 5 By James N. Arnold. Page 162. "Rebecca Jenkins, born 18th of 11th month, 1711; married 3rd of 9th month, 1729, ---- Reynolds. Nothing further known of them."

"(---) Reynolds married 3rd of 9th month, 1729, to Rebecca Jenkins. Nothing further is known of them." (Narraganset Historical Register, page 162, based on Rhode Island Vital Records).
This conflicts with the (source?) listing April 9, 1729 in Bladen, North Carolina as the marriage date.
