Brief Biography

George Reno moved from Prince City, VA to Pittsburg PA, to NC (lived there 6 yrs, with his brother John and Elizabeth Debolt there at the same time), to Kentucky in 1793 where he lived 3 years, then to Ohio (20 yrs), and last lived in Indiana for 19 years in Dearborn County and finally Switzerland County for 18 months(Switzerland Co. Probate Book A, p. 429, dated Apr. 7, 1834). He said in the Probate Book record that he was stationed in 1776 at Catfish Camp (now Washington, PA), and in 1777 was drafted at Chartiers Creek near Pittsburg. He served in the Pennsylvania Rangers during the Revolutionary War 1776-1779, 2 months each year. Also served in Captain Turner's Company, Jefferson Co., TN.

The 1820 census for Hardinburgh Twnshp., Dearborn Co., IN p. 104 has a listing for George Reno and his son George W.: 1 male born before 1775; 1 male born 1775-1794; 1 female born before 1775; and 1 female born 1795-1804. Also listed are James and William Reno. Later on the same page as George there are entries for families of Benjamin Reno and Elijah D. Reno. E.R. and G.T. McCoy, in their book on the descendents of George Reno b. 1751, have George's wife as Jane Baylis, but this seems to be incorrect, especially given that one of his children has a middle name of Duggan.
