REYNOLDS, MONTGOMERY, SCOTT, NASON, RICE, ASBURY FORD, MCGILL, HAMILTON
A SHORT HISTORY AND THUS MY DILEMNA: I am looking for parents and siblings of William Reynolds, b circa 1785, Fairfield District. My Reynolds family line appears to be at a dead end in Fairfield District, South Carolina. I have a few ideas but have unable to find proof. I am hoping that with this Fairfield DNA PROJECT, I may reach new ears.
My brother and I have tested with Ancestry and I have added our results to both FamilyTreeDNA and GEDmatch.
My brother's Kit No. is B345528.
My Kit No. is B339318.
I am looking for connections and would be most appreciative of any leads or thoughts. Thank you.
William Reynolds of Fairfield South Carolina, died 1817, and was the 1st husband of Elizabeth Jean (Betsy) Montgomery. Some of the Montgomery's are buried near Winnsboro, South Carolina at the Brick Church also known as Little River Church and today known as Ebeneezer Presbyterian - Fairfield County. My ancestors traveled on to Lawrenceville, Gwinnette Co, GA, Troupe County, GA, then to Starkville, Oktibbeha Co MS, then on to Camden, Ouachita Co, AR...some back to MS, others to Texas.
Dr. Cyrus William Hunter, son of George Ross Hunter and Annie Ferguson (of Hunter House fame) born in Ridgeway, SC in 1849. Went to Nicaragua in 1874 where he died in 1894.
Great-grandfather, William Walker Shedd, abt. 1898, of the original pioneering Shed/Shedd family of Fairfield County, South Carolina, b. 1826 in Fairfield, d. 1903, Green Cove Springs, Florida.
I am fairly new to this group, but glad I joined. Some of my ancestors in Fairfield Co. are the Adams, Hopkins and Goodwyn family. My 3x ggf is English Hopkins, son of William and Emma Goodwyn Hopkins. Although this branch lived in Richland County, the Hopkins and Goodwyn clan are widespread throughout South Carolina.
