now a whole bunch more that need to be merged out:
After not visiting the Reynolds line for some time, I now find that there is a confusing new branch starting with the first "American" Reynolds, Robert. The new line connects to a seeming duplicate, "Robert Reynolds of Boston", but whose father is shown as Nathaniel Reynolds of Kent, rather than George, Christopher, etc. as we had carefully laid out several years ago. How to sort this out?
What happened is that Robert & Mary Reynolds of Boston got themselves confused with Thomas & Mary Reynolds of Virginia. To make it worse the FindaGrave reference for the Kings Chapel Cemetery points to bad parent data for the "cordwainer" line.
I fixed it by making a new Thomas Reynolds, of Isle of Wight and "detaching" the extra Mary from Robert.
Welcome back! I have a question about a possible RI to NC Reynolds / Jenkins pair you might be able to help with.
It's just a more interesting image of Kings Chapel Burying ground:). The others I could find were of the gate - that doesn't tell me much.
Please do upload source docs as you can, they are so helpful.
I have a Quaker Reynolds married a Quaker Jenkins in RI records : "no further record known" according to the compiler. I have a Quaker Reynolds with Quaker Jenkins wife joining the New Garden monthly meeting in Guilford NC - but the Jenkins wife has a different first name.
And to make it even more fun there's a VA Reynolds married a Jenkins - migrated to NC.
I'm thinking these are 2 different families & one (or both) are in my tree.
I'll post links next.
The Narraganset Historical Register
Rebecca Jenkins married 1729 to ----- Reynolds. Nothing further known of them.
Her sister Mary also married a Reynolds.
Now I don't know if these Reynolds were Friends, but the Jenkins were, and no reason to think these girls married out of unity.
So ... I guess I need a better understanding of Quaker Reynolds in Narragansett?
