About Elisha Reynolds

The following information is extract in brief from Allen L. Stratton's (of North Hero, VT) History of the Town of Alburgh, Vermont:


The index references information concerning him on 28 different pages. It appears that he was a revolutionary war soldier. On page 49, he is listed among those on the 1790 Census for the Town of Alburgh, with 1 male 16 or over, 1 male under 16, and 2 females of all ages. On page 50, he is listed among those on the 1790 Census for the Town of Champlain, Clinton Co., NY as Elisha Runnels with the statistics 1 2 1. On page 57, he is listed among those "Inhabitants of the Town of Alburgh who took the Freeman's Oath on 7 June 1792, prior to the First Town Meeting...."

On page 67, he is listed among those on the "Grand List - 1800." referenced to source: Land & Misc. Records, Alburgh, Vt. Book No. 1, pgs. 192-193. On page 68, he is listed as an Alburgh signer for the Incorporation of Grand Isle County.

On page 80, it describes him (1757-1829) and states a tradition that he was a Revolutionary War soldier, and makes reference to the fact that he is often confused with an Elisha Reynolds (1763-1840). It says that he was originally from Rhode Island. It says that he was buried in the "Reynolds Cemetery" on the shore, just south of Alburgh Springs. A variety of sites indicate he was a Tax Collector, a Ferryman, etc. and active in various government and civic roles. On 379, it says that he was appointed a postmaster.

On page 451, it says that the first burial in the "Reynolds Cemetery" [also mentioned above], a "Son of John & Lucy Reynolds, Died May 1806, Ae 17 Mos. It initially states that the Cemetery "may have originally been a private Cemetery for the Elisha Reynolds (1757-1829) Family. He was a large land owner in this area."
