64. Charles RENEAU (5)(1) (2) was born on 14 Mar 1754 in Jonesboro,
Carter, Tennessee. He died on 4 Aug 1828 in Albany, Cumberland, KY. He
was buried in 6 Miles From Alb, , KY. He has Ancestral File number
4NK6-K1. Charles Reno was in Washington County, North
Carolina/Tennessee from 1788 through 1795. Records show he was a Pvt.
First Class, Capt. Charles Reed's 2nd Company, 4th Battalion,
Washington County (Pa) Militia in the Revolutionary War. He may have
received land in Washington County, Pa., for his service in the
Revolutionary War. No record has been found that Charles ever resided
in Western Pennsylvania after he was grown, or owned land there, even
though his father and brothers William, Benjamin, and Francis did.
Charles was apparently a land speculator. There are many recorded
deeds running to and from him in Carter County, Tenn., and in
Washington County, Tenn.
Charles is shown on "A Register of Members of Sinking Creek Baptist
Church, Book I to 1791" as being a member [Sketch of Sinking Creek
Baptist Church, by Fred F. Hinkle, Church Historian] . At one time he
was "defellowshipped" by the church for "arguing and leaving the
church in a rude and angry manner" but apparently he was later
restored in good standing. "Record Book I, January 13, 1787 thru
August 13, 1791," p. 10, says: "July the 01:1790 at a monthly meeting
met according appointment met to Gether and Proseeds Busnesses as
follows Charles Reno Requests a Coppy of his Excommunication and it is
Granted to him and that is for obscenting him Self from the Church and
for Refussing to hear the Church." [Sketch of Sinking reek Baptist
Church, by fred F. Hinkle, Church Historian] Charles was one of the
"schoolmasters" of Hughes School in the Sinking Creek Community. It is
thought that he moved to Muddy Creek area of Jefferson County, Tenn.,
and that Elizabeth died there.
When Charles' eldest son John moved to Albany, Kentucky (near the
Tennessee-Kentucky line), it appears he went with him, died there, and
was buried there, but no burial spot has been found. John and his
cousin, John Harris Reno, went to Overton County, Tenn. (now Pickett
County) in 1788 and entered land there. Later John Harris and his wife
sold their land to cousin John.
Records of Sinking Creek Baptist Church, 13 Jan 1787 to 13 Aug 1791,
list as members Charles Reno, Elizabeth Tipton, Samuel Tipton, John
Reno, Catherine Reno, William Reno, and Frances Tipton. The records
also mention a dispute involving Jonathan Mulkey on 13 Apr 1794; and

Carter County, TN show that Samuel Tipton sold land in what is now the
town of Elizabethton to Charles Reneau on Oct. 4, 1796, and Joseph
Tipton sold land to Charles on Jan. 20, 1806. About 1808 John Reno
