Notes for Rev. William Louis Reno:|
From Guy Reno ms.: "The old baptist minister". Eldest son of John and Susannah, he moved to Chartiers Creek southwest of Pittsburg with his parents and became a baptist minister (History of Alleghany County, PA by Creigh, p. 37). The history of Yohoganis County, Virginia (presently Allegheny County, PA) states that on August 28, 1778, William Reno, a minister of the gospel, came to court and gave the required oaths of loyalty to and support of the colonies in the Revolutionary War. Four years later, William sold his land (436 acres on Robinson's Run) to Hugh Breckenridge on August 3, 1782, about the time his father and brother Benjamin sold theirs (late 1782). He was in Shenandoah County, Virginia, in 1783, and then went to Washington County, Tennessee (formerly Burke County, Morgan District, North Carolina) which later became Carter County, Tennessee, where he was actively engaged as a traveling minister. "A register of members of Sinking Creek Church, Book I to 1791" lists church members as Garrett Reasoner, Keziah Reasoner, Charles Reno, Elizabeth Tipton, Samuel Tipton, Catherine Reno, William Reno, and John Reno. William Reno is listed as a "clerk in behalf of the church" in a document dated July 5, 1785 in "Papers relating to Sinking Creek Church 1783-1875". When the Big Pigeon Baptist Church was organized on December 6, 1787, in Cocke County, Tennessee, "Will Reno" is shown as one of the elders. In a document dated December 6, 1787 on page 2D of "The Old Church Book" of Cocke Co., members of the Baptist Society of Big Pigeon River constitute the principles of the church, "constituted by Eldership of Isaac Burton and Will Reno...". According to the book, "Over the Misty Blue Hills - The Story of Cocke County, Tennessee" by Ruth Webb Odell, he and Jonathan Mulkey preached there in 1785 and 1786. On page 152 it says "About the year 1785 and 1786, at the settlement of French Broad and Big Pigeon Rivers in which settlements were found a few people distinguished by the name of Baptist. It pleased the Lord in the course of his divine providence to visit us by his ministers, namely, Jonathan Mulkey and William Reno, who labored in the word and doctrine among us." On page 154 of the same book, it says, "...following excerpts are from the Minutes of Big Pigeon Church; on page 3 of Record Book D: On February 28, 1789 at the home of Samuel Job on Big Pigeon River. Elder William Reno preached. Jonas Cane received into the Church. Elder Reno, moderator...". Meanwhile, other Renos still attended the Sinking Creek church as evidenced by a letter dated July 21, 1798 (appendix to Guy Reno ms.) from Catherine Reno, widow of William Reno, to the Sinking Creek Baptist Church in Carter Co., TN mentions her daughter Mary Reno and Mary's husband Thomas Hudeburk in her plea to have a bond of 100 pounds taken by S. D. Hudeburk returned to her and Mary. No Renos are mentioned in records of the Sinking Creek church after 1796.
Sherman Reno in his document on the Reno Family, says that in Pennsylvania Archives, Series 3, Volume 3, "Virginia Certificate' there was a deed to Lewis Renoe, for 400 acres on Robinson's Run, Washington County, PA. He further says "The Lewis Renoe, mentioned above, becomes clearly indicated as the Reverend William Renoe in a later record when these same lands are sold. Evidently William Renoe had a middle name unused and unknown before. Because of the religious struggles of high intensity in western Pennsylvania at about this time, it could be that the Reverend wished not to be known by the name of William. The Baptist church was dividing into several branches and under a great deal of stress. It could have been that when the Rev. William Rennoe applied for a deed from the Yohogania County officials that they were intractable Church or England oriented and would not grant a title to a Baptist minister. In any case the Rev. William Rennoe was also Lewis Rennoe or more completely put, the Rev. William Lewis Rennoe."
Tradition says that William was at the Massacre of Pigeon River in 1798 and saved many settlers but on his way home, but that he was slain by Indians in Sevier County, Tennessee. However, there was a William Reno who was surety for the marriage of Elizabeth Shoults to William Gourley on January 19, 1799, in Carter Co., TN, and another record where William Reno was surety for Jonathan Reno to Sarah Rodgers marriage on December 27, 1800, in Carter County.

Notes for James Butler:|
This James is a known son of Thomas, and the birth record is known from accounts of his father's death by the Indians and his recovery. The death record you attach is from a recollection of Benjamin when he was 84 referring to Ben's brother, James. It's clear from his bro. James's will that Ben. or his interviewer made a simple mistake. I haven't seen any solid information on James (bro. of Joseph). I suspect he was killed in the Revolutionary War or died of disease. Some people list Elizabeth Rodehaver as the wife of your James (bro. of Ben). If there are two or three
Elizabeth Rodehaver's, maybe one was the wife of James (b. 1757) who was born in 1761 per your date. BUT we know for certain that another James Butler (b. 1792, son of the Thomas who is, in turn, the son of Joseph Sr.) married an Elizabeth Rodehaver (b. 1801). Many descendents left bios documenting this and I have tracked the family in the 1800s in Coshocton Co. The sources will be in my file. I have the actual books, but there is a CD available that has these bios. It's called something like, Coshocton Co. Family Histories. In other words, I suspect an error. BUT if there is a record for an Elizabeth Rodehaver b. 1761, then maybe it's true.
