Anna MANN & Samuel REYNOLDS Family of Sullivan Township
1. Samuel1 Reynolds, son of Joshua Reynolds and Ruth Waters*, (#3758) was born in Rutland County, Vermont 1782. Samuel died 1843 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 61. His body was interred 1843 in State Road Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.

He married Anna Mann 1801 in Vermont. (Anna Mann is #3757.) Anna was born 1780 in Rhode Island. Anna was the daughter of Asa Mann* and Elizabeth Buffum*. She married Mr. ? Rowley (Speculative). Anna died 1854 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 74. Her body was interred 1854 in State Road Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Anna Rowley born RI age 65 living with Thomas in 1850

He migrated from Rutland County, Vermont to Sullivan Township 1805. Samuel registered to pay taxes 1816 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Sullivan Township was formed in 1816. It was taken from Covington Township. Its original boundaries included the southern half of Rutland formed in 1829, and the northern part of Ward which was formed in 1852.

Samuel was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Samuel registered to pay taxes 1829 in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Rutland Township was formed From Jackson and Sullivan in 1828. William Howland, William Rose and Ezra Wood performed the first tax assessment.

Samuel was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Anna and Samuel were 50-60 and had a younger couple and another man 50-60 in their household, as well as several other people, mostly children, in an apparent extended family living arrangement. History of Tioga County Pennsylvania p. 1083,1084, 557. List of 1816 taxables. See Reynolds Genelogy page 16 for his account book. Samuel settled in Sullivan Township in the area which became State Road in 1803. This makes it the earliest settlement in the township. He migrated from Vermont. While the older history books don't mention her, he was accompanied by his wife Anna Mann who married him in Vermont in 1801. Their first child was born in 1803.

Samuel Reynolds and Anna Mann had the following children:

2 i. Almeda2 Reynolds reference LR 61 (#4425).

3 ii. Asa Reynolds reference LR 62 (#4426).

4 iii. Joshua Reynolds reference LR 63 (#4427).

5 iv. Eliza Reynolds reference LR 54 (#4416) was born in Rutland County, Vermont 1803. Eliza died in Whiteside County, Illinois, at age unknown. She married Stuart Austin*. (Stuart Austin* is #4417.)

6 v. Draper Buffum Reynolds reference LR 55 (#4418) was born in Rutland County, Vermont 3 AUG 1805. Draper died 27 MAR 1875 in Iowa, at age 69. He married Harriet Smith BEF 1829. (Harriet Smith is #12637.) Harriet was the daughter of Capt.Henry Smith. Draper was taken to Sullivan Township from Vermont by his parents in early childhood. In 1837, he went to Whiteside County, Illinois and made a claim on section 11, Lyndon Township and returned to Pennsylvania. The next spring he went back to Illinois accompanied by his father-in-law, Capt. Henry Smith and family making the trip by the Allegheny, Ohio, and Mississippi Rivers. After living in Lyndon Township a few years, he moved to Iowa where he died.

7 vi. Thomas Reynolds reference LR 56 (#3756) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 25 FEB 1808. Thomas died 3 OCT 1896 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 88. His body was interred OCT 1896 in State Road Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. He married twice. He married Amelia Webster 9 JAN 1834 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. (Amelia Webster is #3755.) Amelia was born 11 FEB 1815 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Amelia was the daughter of Roswell Webster and Betsey Doud. Amelia died 12 JUL 1851 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 36. Her body was interred JUL 1851 in State Road Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Anna Rowley age 65 in household in 1850. She may be Amelia's mother. Perhaps she remarried or perhaps Amelia's name is Rowley not Webster?

He married Mary Moore 10 APR 1853. (Mary Moore is #4428.) Mary was born NOV 1823 in New York. Mary was the daughter of James Moore*. Her body was interred in State Road Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. She resided 47 - State Road, in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 1908. Mary, widow of Thomas.

Thomas was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. The household of Amelia and Thomas included one male 5-10, one female 10-15, one female and one male 15-20. Both Amelia and Thomas were counted in the 20-30 category although he was older. A woman 50-60 was also in the household. It is difficult to determine who that would be as all four of their parents were living at that time, none widowed. Also their own three young children, two of whom were under five should have been listed. I need to check original census film to see if there are errors in the transcription or something misinterpreted. Original seems OK, but this does not quite fit with what we know of this family. Further investigation required.

In the Census of 1850, Thomas was listed as a head of household in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. This property was on the State Road in the 1875 School District # 4. See 1875 atlas for location. Thomas was a farmer with property worth $4000. I assume that the Anna Rowley who is in the household is Thomas' mother Anna Mann who was born in Rhode Island. Possibly she married again after her husband died in 1843.

In the Census of 1860, Thomas was listed as a head of household in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Thomas was a farmer with real property worth $4000 and personal property worth $1000. 1897 Tioga County History p 1084 Lee Reynolds - At the time of Thomas' death, he was the oldest citizen in Tioga County at age 85. In boyhood he had no educational advantages as there were no schools at that time, but he obtained a practical knowledge of men and affairs. He possessed a wonderful memory of pioneer days and events of which his reminiscences were most interesting. He was a Democrat casting his first vote for Andrew Jackson. He was appointed Postmaster of Sullivan Post Office during VanBuren's administration, and served as constable, supervisor, and Justice of the Peace. He assisted to clear the land now embraced within the borough of Mansfield, and particularly that portion on which the bank and Hotel Allen now stand. He and his wife were members of the State Road Methodist Episcopal Church for which for which he was the first Sabbath School superintendent, and which he helped to build and maintain. For many years he was a class leader and steward of the church, but when his eyesight failed him, he was compelled to give up active church work. Mr. REYNOLDS was a man of progressive ideas and public spirit, upright in all things, and respected by the leading people of his native county. Thomas died of heart trouble after an illness of seven days.

8 vii. Lenora Reynolds reference LR 59 (#4422) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 1 MAR 1812. Lenora died 1877 in Lyndon, Lyndon Township, Whiteside County, Illinois, at age 65. She married David Hazard* BEF 1830. (David Hazard* is #4424.) David was born 1800-1810. David was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Lenora and David had two boys under age five at the time of this census. Lenora and David moved to Whiteside County, Illinois going with a span of horses and covered wagon and were thirty days on the journey. They located on the present site of Lyndon. Lenora was widely known throughout the county and was spoken of with great respect.

9 viii. Lyman J. Reynolds reference LR 58 (#23640) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania about 1813. Lyman died 1852 in Whiteside County, Illinois, at age 39. He went to Whiteside County, Illinois about 1843 and took up a claim. He is said to have been a large man six feet tall weighing over 200 pounds. He was a man of independent disposition with no time or patience for certain conventions of society but honest and scrupulous in his dealings with his fellowmen. He called himself "The Duke of Belljarorium." It is said when he once appeared as a witness in the Whiteside County courts he entered the witness box with his hat on. When the Judge requested him to remove the hat, he replied that no judge in the state of Illinois had any authority over the Duke of Belljarorium. Whether he married or not, we do not know. He was found dead in bed about the year 1852.

10 ix. Phoebe Reynolds reference LR 57 (#4419) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 27 APR 1814. Phoebe died 17 AUG 1877 in Lyndon, Lyndon Township, Whiteside County, Illinois, at age 63. She married Justus Rew 21 MAY 1841. (Justus Rew is #4420.) Justus was born 1811-1820. Justus was the son of Henry Rew* and Anna Unknown (Rew). Justus was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Justus lived next door to Phoebe Reynold's brother, Thomas, and just one house away from his parents. His household included two males under five, one male under five, and one male 15-20. Two females 20-30 and one female 60-70 were also in the household. Justus may have been married prior to marrying Phoebe in 1841. or some other confusion may be present. Needs to be investigaed. Does not fit with information on file.

Justus was listed as the head of a family on the 1850 Census in Whiteside County, Illinois. Justus was in Districe 37 of Whiteside County in 1850.

Justus was listed as the head of a family on the 1860 Census in Lyndon, Lyndon Township, Whiteside County, Illinois. From Lee Reynolds, p. 40: Phoebe and Justus had no children but many of her nieces and nephews lived with her at different times. One writes, "She was like a mother to me. In fact, she was a mother to everyone. I only wish the people of today could be as much to their fellowmen as this old lady was when I knew her."

11 x. Mahala Reynolds reference LR 60 (#4423) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 13 MAY 1817. Mahala died in Whiteside County, Illinois, at age unknown. She married Daniel Richmond* before 1836. (Daniel Richmond* is #7463.) Daniel was born 24 Feb 1814. (Mahala and Daniel) made the overland route to Whiteside County, Illinois (from Sullivan Township) in 1844. After a month of travel they arrived at the home of her brother, Lyman J. Reynolds where they lived until the fall of 1845 when they took possession of a dugout on section 5, where they lived until they built a new house in 1847.
