Notes

The first record of John Reynolds in Botetourt County is found in the Will of his father-in-law, Lodowick Thomas. Lodowick's Will was written August 15, 1775, and states: "...I do hereby appoint my trusty and well beloved friend John Runnels Executor of this my last will and testament ...." Lodowick left all of his land in Botetourt County to his daughter, Magdalin Runnills (wife of John Reynolds). This property consisted of two tracts, one about 200 acres where he formerly lived adjacent to John Caldwell and one about 100 acres located on the north fork of Johns Creek near Gasper Sarver. The survey of one of these tracts of land, probably the one on Johns Creek, wasn't properly returned to the Land Office to be recorded. John Reynolds initiated this final transaction in Lodowick's name, and Governor Thomas Jefferson signed the grant on February 1, 1781. This survey, dated September 9, 1772, contained 185 acres. John and Magdalin sold the 185 acres on October 12, 1802, to Archibald Caldwell. John's signature was on the deed and Magdalin signed with her (X) mark.
