Notes for W
ILLIAM RENO:
      He died shortly before his father in 1777. It is said that he left children later said to be illegitimate [see court dispute discussed in writeup on father].
      Prince William County Deed Book Q 1763-1768, pp. 579-580, April 2, 1768, reads as follows: "This indenture made the 2d day of April 1768 & in year of our Lord One thousand seven hundred & Sixty Eight Between Thomas Reno Senr. of Dettingen Parish in Prince William County, Planter, of one part & William Reno of sd County, Planter, of other part Witnesseth that sd Thomas Reno for divers good causes and considerations of Five Shillings to him in hand paid but more especially for the natural love and good will that I bair to my Son, William Reno, having given unto my loving Son, William Reno, to him and his heirs forever one certain tract of land it being one Equell moiety of a grater track lieng and being on ye Branches of Occoquan and Powells Run taken up by me, Thomas Reno, as may appear by a Deed from the Proprietors Office baring date the 3d day of December 1741 and for him to have his part lade of on the South side where he, said William Reno, now lives and joining the line of Thomas Debuts land Dect., To have and to hold one equell half of the above mention'd tract of land it containing Five hundred and thirty one acres to said William Reno and his heirs for ever paying to ye Lord or Lords of the Fee the annual rents as accustom'd to be paid for ye same In Witness whereof I have set my hand & fixed my Seal in presents of W.

      "At a Court held for Prince William County the 2d day of May 1768 This Deed of Gift and Receipt indorsed from Thomas Reno to his Son, William Reno, was acknowledged by said Thomas Reno as his act and deed & ordered to be recorded."

     
Child of W
ILLIAM RENO and SISSY TIPTON is:
  i.   THOMAS6 RENO, b. Bet. 1740 - 1755, Prince William Co., VA.


18. THOMAS5 RENO, JR. (THOMAS4, LEWIS3, LOUIS2 REYNAUD, LOUIS1) was born Abt. 1731 in Stafford Co., VA (present-day Prince William Co., VA)32, and died Abt. Sep 1768 in Prince William Co., VA33. He married CATHERINE SPILLER34 in Prince William County, Virginia, daughter of WILLIAM SPILLER, SR..

Notes for T
HOMAS RENO, JR.:
      On October 2, 1769, Thomas' brother Lewis was appointed executor of his will (Prince William County Bond Book). Guy Reno says that Thomas died childless, but evidence has since been found that he had a son Thomas with many descendants (research by Jeanne Steele jdstee01@sprynet.com), and two daughters Sissy and Ally (research by Gertrude Morris). A Power of Attorney is granted by William Overall, Sissy's Reno's husband on January 13, 1792, in Nelson County, KY, Deed Book 4, p. 395, that reads "to receive Sissy Overall's part of father's estate, Thomas Renoe, decd, in the hands of Scarlet Madden." [Steve Fancy Research]
      In Prince William County Deeds 1796-1799, pp. 116-117, October 12, 1796, we find the following: "This identure made and entered into this Twelfth day of October in year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred & ninety six Between Robert H. Courts and Catherine his Wife of County of Nelson and State of Kentucky of one part and Enock Renoe of County of Prince William of other part. Witnesseth that Robert H. Courts for the sum of Eighteen pounds Virginia Currency to him in hand paid by Enock Renoe, do by these presents bargain sell & confirm unto Enock Renoe his heirs a certain tract of land containing Thirty seven and one third acres lying in Prince Wm. County being one third part of a trace of land formerly property of Thomas Renoe, first Husand to the above Catherine Courts, which land was set apart for her Dower, Begining at a Stake on Francis Renoe's line in the low ground of Philemmon Run, thence running thro the Plantation to the back line so as to contain the above 37 1/3 acres set apart as above agreeable to an order of the Worshipful Court of Prince William; Together with all houses profits with the appurtenances of every kind, To have and to hold the bargained premises unto Enock Renoe his heirs and Robert H.

      "At a Court held for Prince William County the 3d day of April 1797. This Deed from Robert H. Courts to Enock Renoe was proved by the Oath of Thomas Chapman and ordered to be Certified; And a a Court continued and held for the same County the 4th day of April 1797, this same Deed was further proved by the Oath of William Grant and ordered to be further Certified; and at a court held for the same County the 1st day of May 1797, this same Deed was fully proved by the Oath of Samuel Howison and ordered to be recorded. Tests John Williams, Cl. Cur."
      After the death of his brother William, he is believed to have come into possession of that part of his father's Grant of 1742 which had been deeded to William on April 2, 1768. On September 12, 1796, Francis Reno, his uncle, conveyed 130 acres to Enoch Reno describing as "adjoining the lands of Thomas Reno's orphans."

Notes for C
ATHERINE SPILLER:
Catherine and Robert H. Courts were in Nelson County, Kentucky, in 1796.

HOMAS RENO and CATHERINE SPILLER are:

19. LEWIS5 RENO, SR. (THOMAS4, LEWIS3, LOUIS2 REYNAUD, LOUIS1) was born Abt. 1733 in Prince William Co., VA, and died Aft. 1769. He married ELIZABETH SAMPSON Bef. 1764 in Virginia. She was born in Probably Culpeper County, VA.

Notes for L
EWIS RENO, SR.:
      Sherman Reno said that Lewis served in the Virginia Militia in Braddock's Campaign and under Col. George Washington at Fort Necessity, but his name is not on the muster list of the Virginia militia for those campaigns, and this is unlikely (National Park Service, Fort Necessity website, http://www.nps.gov/fone) (Source: Steve Fancy research)
      In Prince William County Deed Book T, 1774-1779, pp. 178-183, October 11, 1775, we find the following: "This indenture made the (in lease eleventh) (in Release twelfth) day of October in year of our Lord One thousand seven hundred Seventy five Between Lewis Renoe Senr. of the Parish of Dettingen and County of Prince William, Planter, of one part and William Melton Junr. of the Parish and County aforesaid of other part Witnesseth that Lewis Renoe for sum of One hundred pounds current money to him doth sell unto William Melton (in his actual possession now being by virtue of a sale for one year and by force of the Statute for transferring uses into possession) and to his heirs all that tract of land being in Prince William County on the Lick Branch of Occaquan and on the drains of the Long Branch of Occaquan being a moiety or one half of a tract of land granted to Thomas Renoe (Father of the said Lewis Renoe) by Deed from the Proprietors of the Northern Neck of Virginia bearing date the third day of December in year One thousand seven hundred and Forty two and bounded beginning at several marked trees on West side of a drain on the Lick Branch and extending thence Sth. Wt. to a fallen red Oak being a corner Debutte's land thence Nth. Wt. to a white Oak near a branch and in the back line of the tract, thence Nth. Et. to a fallen white Oak, thence Nt. Wt. to a fallen white Oak corner to Filkins and Geo. Byrne, thence Nth. Et. to a falled Red Oak, thence Nth. Wt. to a red Oak sapling by a branch, thence Nth. Wt. to a white Oak corner to Thorn, thence Sth. Et. to a Gum and two white Oaks the begining of Thorn's Tract, thence East to a white Oak and two Maples in the Lick Branch, thence Sth. Et. to a large white Oak on East side of a drain of Lick Branch, thence 5th. Et. to the begining containing Two hundred and thirty five acres Together with all hous3es, orchards, trees, profits belonging To have and to hold the said Two hundred and Thirty five acres of land and premises unto said William Melton his heirs and assigns forever. In Witness whereof the said Lewis Renoe hath set his hand and seal in presence of Jno. Matthews, Wm. Miller, John Harway, Zeley Reno. Signed by Lewis Reno.
      "At a Court held for Prince William County the 7th day of November 1775 This Release with the Receipt Indorsed was acknowledged by the said Reno and admitted to record."
      Prince William County Order Book 1778-1785, on Page 4 for the May Court 1778, says that "Ordered that William Alexander gent. do divide the Lands between the orphans of Thomas Reno and Lewis Reno, Junr., and that John Leewright Junr. Be appointed Guardian to the said Orphans for that special purpose." This indicates that Lewis Reno, Jr. did leave one or more children, and it probably indicates that he died about the same time as Thomas Reno who died on December 24, 1777 (Roger Reno research).
      The lawsuit between Thomas Hoomes, Jr. and Enoch Reno says that Lewis Reno died childless, but other evidence in that lawsuit and listed above suggests otherwise. An entry in the Prince William County Order Book for August 1779 for the Commonwealth of Virginia vs. Lewis Reno, Junr., says that "The defendant is excused his fine." This probably means that he was excused from paying his tobacco tax because of his death.
      In the will of John Sampson of Culpeper County in 1778, Sampson mentions his oldest daughter Elizabeth being the wife of Lewis Reno. Deed Book Q, p. 146, on March 5, 1764, has Lewis Reno and his wife Elizabeth selling 69 acres of land to William French, "lying in the county of Prince William on the South side of a branch joining lands of William Spiller Senior and John Tackett and land of Lewis Reno."
     
Child of L
EWIS RENO and ELIZABETH SAMPSON is:
53. i.   LEWIS6 RENO, JR., b. Bet. 1750 - 1764, Prince William Co., VA.


20. LEWIS5 RENO, JR. (LEWIS4, LEWIS3, LOUIS2 REYNAUD, LOUIS1) was born Abt. 1740 in Prince William County, VA, and died Sep 1799 in Muhlenberg County, KY35. He married ELIZABETH TACKETT36 Bef. 1763, daughter of WILLIAM TACKETT and SARAH WATERS. She was born Abt. 1743 in Prince William County, VA37, and died Abt. 1803 in Muhlenberg County, KY.

Notes for L
EWIS RENO, JR.:
      Lewis and his brother Eleender were executors of his brother John's will in March 1768.
      In 1776 he received a bequest of 102-3/4 acres (part of the original Reno-Chevalle Grant of 1710) under the will of his father. He sold this land to James West on September 6, 1779. On December 1, 1796, Lynn West conveyed this land to Enoch Reno.
      As Lewis Reno, Jr., he received a settlement of his account against the estate of Thomas Reno on Nov. 1, 1779 (Prince William County Book G, p. 69). He is referred to in various records of Prince William County as "Lewis the younger." Court Minute records for Prince William County, VA, on June 3, 1767 list Lewis Reno. He was listed as a taxpayer in Prince William County in 1783 and 1787. He sold 142 acres on Cedar Run, part of the original Reno-Tackett Grant of 1711, to John Kincheloe on October 7, 1794 (Prince William County Deed Book Y, p. 134). He and his wife either moved to Kentucky about 1784 with his three sons Lewis, John, and Jesse, or he joined them there later. His claim for service in the Revolutionary War was approved for 93 days service as a corporal.
      From "History of Kentucky, Illustrated 1885," J. H. Battle et al. LSD file #0962913 said that Lewis emigrated to Pennsylvania and then had a hotel in Virginia and in 1790 moved to Nelson County, Kentucky. There is a land claim for 200 acres on nelson Creek in Christian County by Lewis Reno on December 7, 1798 (Book 19, p. 475). In or before 1799 he moved to Muhlenberg County and settled near Kincheloe's Bluff on the Green River, where he lived the rest of his days. He died in 1799 and is buried in the Kincheloe Bluff Cemetery. A British Mercantile Claim dated July 9, 1769 says that he "removed to Kentucky about 7 years ago, insolvent."
      His wife Elizabeth was allowed a claim for 400 acres on Cypress Creek in an area reserved for veterans of the Revolutionary War (Muhlenberg County Court Order Book 1, p. 146, March 23 1801). Jesse Reno and Lewis Reno also each claimed 400 acres on Cypress Creek in March 1801.
      His will reads, "By the Will of God Amen. I being weak in body but sound in memory do constitute and appoint this my last will and testament. First, I give and bequeath to my beloved daughter Milly Kincheloe a Mulatto boy named Charles to her and her heirs forever. I give and bequeath to my son Lewis Reno the plantation on which I now live to him and his heirs forever. The balance of my estate I give and bequeath to my beloved wife Elizabeth during her natural life and at her death that my estate shall be equally divided amongst all my children. Signed, sealed and delivered this 28th day of August 1799." (Will Book 1, p. 3-4). The inventory of his estate included 1 negro woman named Sarah, 1 horse, 4 head of cattle, a few hogs, 2 beds, 6 books, and a saddle.
      Muhlenberg County Court Orders, Book 1, page 37, dated September 24, 1799, records: "The Last Will and Testament of lewis Reno deceased was exhibited into Court and proved by the Oaths of Isaac Davis and Moses Lucas subscribing witnesses thereto and Ordered to be recorded."
      Muhlenberg County Court Orders, Book 1, p. 43-44, dated September 24, 1799, records: "On the motion of Lewis Kinchaloe who made Oath as the Law directs Certificate is granted him for obtaining letters of Administration on the estate of Lewis Reno deceased. With the Will annext who thereupon together with John Bradly and William Hynes his securities entered into and Acknowledged their bond in the penality of One thousand pounds conditioned as the Law directs. With leave for Elizabeth Renno, widow & relect of the said decedant to Join in the administration aforesaid when ever she may think proper."
      Muhlenberg County Court Orders, Book 1, p. 79, dated January 28, 1800, records: "An Inventory and Appraisment of the estate of Lewis Renno deceased was returned into Court by the Administrator which being examined is Ordered to be recorded."
      Muhlenberg County Court Orders, Book 1, p. 202, dated July 27, 1801, records: "The persons appointed for that purpose returned a settlement made with Lewis Kincheloe, Admnistrator of Lewis Renno deceased which being Examined and approved is Ordered to be recorded."
      Muhlenberg County Court Orders, Book 2, p. 74, dated July 28, 1806, records: "Ordered that Lewis Reno be and he is hereby appointed Surveyor of the road from Lewisberg to Greenville as far as the path that leaves said road leading to John Durall's, in the room and place of Thomas Randolph, who is exempt."
      Muhlenberg County Court Orders, Book 2, p. 117, dated July 19, 1807, records: "The Court, a majority of all it's Justices being present, doth recommend to his Excellency the Governor, Lewis Reno and Benjamin Owens as proper persons, one of whom to fill the Office of Chief Inspector of Tobacco, at the Lewisburg Warehouse."
      The 1810 Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, census lists Lewis Reno, 1 male 26 to 45, 3 females under 10, 1 female 10 to 16, and 1 female 26 to 45.

Notes for E
LIZABETH TACKETT:
      Prince William County Deed Book R, pp. 62-63, dated February 6, 1769, reads: "This indenture made the sixth day of Febery in year of our Lord One thousand seven hundred and Sixty nine between WILLIAM TACKITT, Executor of ye Last Will and Testament of WILLIAM SPILLER late dect. of ye County of Prince William of ye one part & MOSES JEFFRES & RACHAL his Wife and ELIZABETH RENO Wife of LEWIS RENO Younger and SARAH RENO Daughter of ye sd LEWIS & ELIZABETH RENO of other part Witnesseth that I sd WILLIAM TACKITT for divers good causes and the consideration of Fifty pounds to me pay'd but more especially for ye natural love & good will that I bare to my loving Brother in Law MOSES JEFFRES, and my Sister, RACHAL JEFFRES, and my daughter ELIZABETH RENO, and my Grandaughter, SARAH RENO, have granted & confirmed unto ye above named MOSES JEFFRES and RACHAL his Wife for and during their natural lifes and then to ELIZABETH RENO for and dureing her natural life and after her deth to my Grandaughter SARAH RENO and her heirs lawfull and at her deth if no such Children then to the heirs of ELEZEBETH RENO, now Wife of LEWIS RENO Younger, for ever one certain parcel of land being in County of Prince William and on the North side of a Run called FELKINS MILL RUN being ye land where WILLIAM SPILLER JUNR. late lived, being part of that parcel of land WILLIAM SPILLER the Elder bought of HENRY HALLEY which said land was left to be solde by theExecutors of WILLIAM SPILLER late dect.

      Muhlenberg County Court Orders, Book 1, p. 146, dated March 23, 1801, records: "Elizabeth Renno this day claimed a right to four hundred acres of Land on Cypress agreeably to entry filed which is granted accordingly."
     
Children of L
EWIS RENO and ELIZABETH TACKETT are:
  i.   HANSON6 RENO38, b. Bet. 1760 - 1770; d. 1803, Alexandria (Fairfax County), VA38.
  Notes for HANSON RENO:
      From "The Reno Family," by Wm. Lawson Reno: J. M. Reno of Youngstown, OH, in his memo of Jan. 1, 1900 quoting letters received earlier from Jesse H. Reno of Greenville, KY, gives his name as Hanson and says that he was the son of Lewis Reno and that he died at Alexandria, Virginia in 1803, leaving a widow and three children.
      On October 2, 1792, Henson Reno was a witness to the will of William X. Randolph along with Samuel Jackson and Jesse Cronwell.
      On November 22, 1799, a Hanson Reno signed a Deed of Emancipation for a negro slave (Prince William County Deed Book 2, p. 266).
      On September 27, 1803, he signed a Bill of Sale for a negro slave (Prince William County Deed Book 2, p. 274). Nothing further is known of him.
      There is a possibility that he was named for John Hanson (1715-1783) who served as the first full term President of the United States(11/5/1781--11/4/1782). However this has not been proven. [Research by Leigh Wimberly]

54. ii.   JESSE RENO, b. 1763, Prince William County, VA; d. Apr 1834, Muhlenberg County, KY.
  iii.   SARAH RENO, b. Abt. 1765, Prince William County, VA.
  Notes for SARAH RENO:
Sarah was left a bequest by her grandfather Tackett in his will dated June 30, 1782. She was listed in an indenture of February 6, 1769, from her grandfather William Tackett.

He married NANCY ANN SUTTLE39 Abt. 1767 in Prince William County, VA40, daughter of STROTHER SUTTLE, JR.. She was born Bet. 1740 - 1750 in Virginia.

Notes for D
AVID RENO:
      David Reno's name appears in many records from Prince William County, VA: 1781, inventory of estate of Mary Reeves, dec'd; 1783, Book G, p. 249, inventory of estate of John Chapman, dec'd; Book U, p. 263-265 on October 14, 1781: "David Reno and Nancy his wife of Pr. Wm. Co., Virginia, sell to Rev. Thomas Thornton of Stafford Co., VA, ...land which was granted to Wm. Moore Jan. 21, 1742 and sold to Lewis Reno, Gent, ... who by his hand bequeathed this land to his son the said David Reno ... land is bounded by Kincheloe, Tackett, and Spiller's lands."
      In Prince William County Order Book, March Court 1782, at 150 (cited in Northern Virginia Genealogy, vol. 8 (2003) at p. 1238), David presented a certificate of beef (1) weighing 175 and 4d per lb. (Roger Reno research)
      In 1787 he was taxed for 8 slaves, 8 horses, and 13 cattle. The Commissioners Book 4, p. 204-205 has Public Service Claims by Lewis Reno, David Reno, and Enoch Reno of Prince William County.
      David Reno purchased 800 acres of land in Culpeper Co., VA in the Little Fork of the Rappahannock River from Francis Thornton, on May 20, 1783 (Culpeper Co. Deed Book M, p. 85). He later purchased more land in Prince William County from his wife's sister and husband (Deed Book Z for 1 June 1798), "Samuel Watson and Mary his wife of Pr. Wm. Co. sell to David Renoe of the same county ... land which was willed to the said Watson by Strother Settle, deceased."
      In the 1810 census, David Renoe's household has one male 16-25, one male 26-45, one male over 45, one girl 10-15, a woman 16-25, a woman over 45, and 29 slaves. On December 14, 1821, the Prince William County court ordered William Compton, John Leachman and Charles Ewell to appraise David Renoe's estate. A full inventory of his estate is listed in Will Book M (p. 261-263) and much of his property was sold to Nancy Reno, William Reno, and Strother Reno. William Reno and Strother Reno were the administrators of the estate. David Reno's estate was settled and returned to the court for recording on June 7, 1825.
      In Prince William County Deeds, p. 151, we find: "TO ALL WHOM this presents shall come, Know ye that I Strother Suttle of County of Prince William in consideration of the natural love & affection which I bear unto my Son in Law, David Reno & my Daughter, Ann, his Wife, as well as for diverse other good causes me thereunto moving by this present Indenture do give grant & confirm unto them the said David & Ann during their natural lives & longest liver of them a Negro woman named Lucy & her Six Children now in their possession to wit. Williby, Sharlot, Mill, Jude, Lewis, Robert & after the decrease of the sd David & Ann I give the afsd Six Children & their increase to be equally divided between my Grand Sons William Reno & Strother Reno & Grand Daughter Ann Reno & to their heirs forever & the sd Negro Lucy & her future increase at the period afsd. I give to William & Strother & to their heirs for ever; In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand & affixed my seal this 6th day of October one thousand seven hundred & eighty eight. Signed sealed & delivered in presence of August Love, James White, Saml. Watson. Signed by Strother (his mark) Suttle.
      "At a Court held for Prince William County the 6th day of October 1788. This Deed of Gift from Strother Suttle to David Renoe was proved by the oaths of Augustine Love & James White & admitted to Record."
      David Reno named three of his sons unusual names: Strother, Scarlet, and Madden. The name Strother comes from Mary Strother (b. abt. 1661) who married John Settle (or Suttle); their son Strother Settle married Mary Browne, and Strother Settle, Jr. (1720-1792) was the father of Nancy Ann Suttle. Scarlett Madden's wife Margaret Orear was related to the Reno and Orear families through Susannah Thorn Reno and her mother Mary Peck Orear Thorn. The Maddens were residents of Prince William County and Scarlett Madden was probably the source of the unusual names given to two of David Reno's sons.
      In Prince William County Deed Book U, pp. 263-268, October 14, 1781, we find the following: "9On margin: Exd. & Delv. Mr. Bertd. Ewell the 9th October 1792) This indenture made the (in Lease fourteenth)(in Release fifteenth) day of October in year of our Lord One thousand seven hundred and Eighty one Between David Reno and Nancey his Wife of County of Prince Wm. of the one part and the Reverend Thomas Thornton of County of Stafford of other part Witnesseth that for sum of One hundred & forty pounds Specie current money of Virginia said David Reno and Nancy his Wife have sold unto Thos. Thornton (in his actual possession now being by virtue of a sale for one year and by force of the Statute for transferring uses into possession) and his heirs all that parcel of land being in County of Prince Wm. granted to Wm. Moore by a Deed from the Proprietors Office of the Northern Neck of Virginia bearing date the twenty first day of January 1741, which said Wm.

      In deeds 1783 he was described as a son of Lewis Reno and was described as living in Prince William County, Virginia. In a deed made in 1788, David said he was married to Nancy Ann Suttle. On October 6, 1788, her father, Strother Suttle, gave to them "a negro woman named Lucy and her six children now in their possession." Later these 6 children and their increases were to be divided equally between grandsons and granddaughter. In 1794 he signed a petition saying that his land in Bristow's Tract, Prince William County, had been confiscated.
      In Prince William County Deeds, pp. 311-313, June 1, 1798, we find the following: "(On margin; Examd & deld. the 12th Decr. '98).

      David was allowed a claim for public service during the Revolutionary War.
      David's will was probated on March 5, 1822, in a court of Quarterly sessions for Prince William County, Virginia. The will reads as follows:
      "The writing from David Reno was proved by the oath of John Leakman and John Roper.

      In Prince William County Deeds, p. 151, we find: "TO ALL WHOM this presents shall come, Know ye that I Strother Suttle of County of Prince William in consideration of the natural love & affection which I bear unto my Son in Law, David Reno & my Daughter, Ann, his Wife, as well as for diverse other good causes me thereunto moving by this present Indenture do give grant & confirm unto them the said David & Ann during their natural lives & longest liver of them a Negro woman named Lucy & her Six Children now in their possession to wit.

      Strother Reno's estate was inventoried on April 8, 1841, in Will Book Q, p. 483.
