Reynolds Family Circle
Anna Lucanda Reynolds
Anna Lucanda Reynolds was the fifth child and second daughter born to Henry Reynolds and Mary Brown, she was born on October 17, 1834 in Bedford county, Tennessee.
I believe that Anna married a gentleman by the name of William C. Maples and that that they had two children. Their first was a son, William J. Maples, born on October 10, 1873, married his first cousin, Nancy Maud Reynolds, the daughter of Arthur Campbell, and died on April 3, 1928. I believe that there was also a daughter, Sallie, who married a gentleman by the name of Moon.
I believe that Anna Lucanda died prior to 1880. She is not on the 1880 federal census and they state that her son, William J. is in the home of Elizabeth (Reynolds) Wellborn. I believe that Elizabeth raised William and moved him to Texas with her in 1881. I am not sure what happened to William C. Maples. It is possible that this is the William S. Maples that sold land to T.P. Davis in Jackson County, Alabama. The following Deed Records exists there in Jackson County:
Know all men by these presents that I, William S. Maples, of said county of Titus, do hereby choose, constitute, and appoint F. M. Kirby, of Marshall County, Alabama, my attorney in fact for me and in my name to bargain, sell, and convey to any person or persons and for any sum of money or other consideration as to him may seem, most to my advantage a certain tract of land lying in Jackson County in the state of Alabama, or my interest in (160) one hundred and sixty acres of land known as the Broadway Place near Coffeetown to receive consideration for which the sale of said land may be made and for the same to execute in my name proper receipts and acquitances and to make and execute the purchase such assurance of title to said tract of land with such covenants and warrants as my said attorney may seem proper, whose acts in the premises I hereby ratify. In testimony whereof I have herewith set my hand this October 5, 1875.

Nelson O. Kyle
If this was indeed the husband to Anna then we know that he also moved to Titus County, Texas. The D. R. Reynolds that notarized the Power of Attorney is David Richard, which is Anna Lucanda's brother. The only information that I have on Sallie comes from her brother's obituary which states that he has a sister Sallie Moon that lives in Hugo, Oklahoma.
