About Aaron Reno

According to Sherman Reno, when the Cherokee were removed from the headwaters of the Cumberland River in 1804, the squatters began moving in. Aaron was there in 1808 and stayed until he left with the War of 1812. His property was at Buffaloe Cove, a branch of the Obed River near Jamestown (Fentress County), Tenn.   He, his brother Lewis, and his father moved to Somerville (Morgan County), Alabama. They were undoubtedly in Alabama in 1819 to 1823 since their two youngest children were born there and their eldest son, George, married in Morgan County, Alabama.

The family boarded a riverboat at Decatur about 1827 and moved to Greene Co., Illinois. George and old John Reno, Jr. stayed in Alabama with son Lewis, while Aaron, Nancy, Philemon, Aaron Jr., John and Harrison moved to Illinois (Sherman Reno).
