SURNAMES: REYNOLDS & STARBUCK
QUERY: I am looking for descendants of Humphrey REYNOLDS (b abt 1580, bur 1 Jul 1632 Cropwell Bishop, Notts, England). Humphrey had 7 known children, 6 of whom lived to adulthood. They are Catherine (bap Southwell, Notts. 16 Feb 1606/07), Elizabeth (bap Southwell 15 Jan 1608/09), John (bap Southwell 15 Apr 1610), Anna (bap Cropwell Bishop, Notts 10 Dec 1611), Mary (bap Cropwell Bishop 25 mar 1615), and Humphrey (bap Cropwell Bishop 25 Jan 1616/17). The 7th child, Sara, was bap and bur in 1620 in Cropwell Bishop. I believe some of these children immigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony and Piscataqua Plantation in the 1630's, and of those who came some returned to England. Their father, Humphrey, matriculated Cambridge Uni. about 1597 and was later the clerk of Cropwell Bishop, having been ordained in York Diocese. My goal is to discover if anyone has traced ancestry to this family and may know who or if these children married. I believe Catherine may have married my Edward STARBU
CK either in England or Dover, NH in the mid-1630's.

SURNAMES: REYNOLDS, HICKEY
QUERY: I am seeking information on a Mary A Reynolds, who married Cornelius Hickey. They were my 2nd Great Grandparents. I would like to know if anyone has data on Mary's parents, as I am stuck with her line. I have that she was born in Tennessee, and she and Cornelius lived in Knox County, TN for their marriage. I do have information on her children, etc., and I would be happy to share that and source information with you, should there be interest in that. Her oldest daughter was named Barbara White Hickey, and her oldest son was named Jonathan Martin (John) Hickey, which if they named as traditionally done in that time, leads me to believe those names may reflect names associated with her parents. I did find a family of Reynolds in TN at that time, and they did have a Mary, but the middle name was wrong, which could be in error or it could mean I am barking up the wrong tree.
Here is what I know about Mary A Reynolds.
Mary A. Reynolds Hickey
Birth: Oct. 4, 1826 (supposedly TN, though I cannot verify this, but the birthdate I have verified from her gravestone.)
Married: Cornelius Hickey on 08 NOV 1842, which I have verified in a source document
Death: Nov. 16, 1892 (Knoxville, TN) which I have verified in a source document.
