My name is Roberta ( Bertie) Casey. My 3rd GGrandfather was Griffin B.Reynolds, born 1800 in Culpepper VA, and died in 1888. He married Elizabeth (Betsy) Black. I don't know if he was previously married. I know Betsy was a widow and had children by Mr. Black.
Griffin & Betsy had 4 children, (1) John David Reynolds, born 11/29/1832 in
Cabell Co., VA (now WV). He married Cassie Ann Chapman.
(2) Elizabeth born 1830
(3) Nancy born 1831
(4) Hardin born 1835.
I have a copy of a deed where John Renals of Cabell Co. State of VA deeded Griffin Reynolds property November 9th, 1822. I have heard Griffin was the son of John Reynolds and Miriam. I have seen where John and Miriam VanBibber Reynolds had children marrying in
Kanawha County VA/WV in the 1811-1840 Marriage Records. The names were: Alethea, Abigail, Vernon M. and John Reynolds. This John Reynolds married a Nancy Vinyard 4/19/1838.
My John had his 1st child (to my knowledge) Griffin in 1800. I would appreciate any information anyone might have. I have worked on genealogy for 35 yrs and I just can't find documentation of Griffin's parents, since this deed didn't specify "my son".
