MY REYNOLDS FAMILY LINE

First, My story (by Linda Schreiber):

My Grandmother, Ruby Rhoda Reynolds Crane, used to tell many stories about our ancestors. One in particular was about being related to Kitty Greene, one of the only women at Valley Forge at times. That is because she was a bright and adventuresome woman and also the wife of General Nathaniel Greene.  During the revolutionary war, two friends of George Washington, Nathaniel Greene and his wife Kitty, accompanied him at Valley Forge and other strategic locations. George, Martha, Nathaniel and Kitty went way back. They were all Northern New Englanders and participated in many skirmishes together. Nathaniel was a steel forger by trade and these skills were only a part of his interests. His name also appeared on the roster of the Boston Tea Party Association, among others.

Being from Rhode Island in those days is a sure sign that you were different.  Roger William had set up the Providence of Rhode Island based upon complete freedom of religion and separation of church and state, very contrary to the tenants of England and the Crown. Nathaniel and Kitty were both born in Rhode Island and were not strangers to independent thinking and living.

Their loyalty and skills were very much typical of the kinds of people who were needed to help General Washington as he was beginning his job of securing our liberty from England.  Nathaniel had spent many an hour hanging out in Boston in his youth, in book stores and wherever he could learn about this new country and the study of war.  He had an uncanny way of knowing just what was needed the most, and George recognized this in him.  Unfortunately, being a Quaker, the religion of his youth was not so free thinking about participating in war. His participation in the resistance caused him to be suspended by the Quakers. You can read more about Nathaniel in a book called, “The Fighting Quaker.”

At Valley Forge, Greene was Quarter Master General in charge of supplies.  George and Nathaniel’s wives, Kitty and Martha were both there with them off and on, sewing for the men and doing whatever they could to help. There were some fun times too.  In a place called the Bake House, George, Nathaniel and company performed “Cato”, the play.

Nathaniel was eventually given command of the continental Army in the South, where his brilliant resistance finally forced the English to withdraw back into the North.  He, like most of our other great patriots, found themselves penniless after the war and had to sell off his holdings at Cumberland Island, in Dungeness, Rhode Island.

The people of Georgia, out of gratitude, gave them a plantation, Mulberry Grove in Savanna Georgia. Unfortunately, when he and Kitty retired to their new plantation, Nathaniel’s life was cut short at the age of 44, by a heat stroke, probably a combination of the infamous humidity and heat of the southern summers. They grew cotton, and were trying to live without slavery.

Now Kitty and Nathaniel had two boys named George Washington Greene and Nathaniel Ray Greene, and two girls, Martha and Cornelia. Too bad for young George, born in 1776 while Nathaniel was with George in New York, because, had he not met an untimely death at puberty, Kitty had promised to let George Washington take charge of his schooling and training as a gentleman. So it was up to Nathaniel Ray, born in 1780, to carry on the family name.

As Grandma Crane tells it, Kitty advertised for a tutor for the children and ended up with a nice young man who was very inventive.  His name was Eli Whitney and he invented an idea for harvesting cotton called the Cotton Gin. The Greene’s were very supportive of Eli. Soon his invention became famous. But that is another story.  Anyway, a few years after Nathaniel died Kitty moved her family back to New England in 1786. In 1796 she married her new manager and business partner Phineas Miller.

It is here that I have not yet traced the thread entirely. But in our genealogy, a Miss McFarland married Peter Reynolds I, born about 1762 in Vermont. Then Rhoda Mariah Greene, born in 1795, married Peter Reynolds II, born about 1794 in New York.  Was Mariah the daughter of young Master Nathaniel? If so, he was very young indeed to be a father. Or was Rhoda  related to Kitty and Nathaniel in some other way?  Grandmother Ruby said that her branch of the Reynolds family married into the Greene family. Grandma Ruby’s maiden name was Reynolds. It is just not very clear.

Grandma said the Reynold’s name used to be MacReynolds. They move from Scotland to Ireland and then to America where the Mac was dropped from the name. She said they had political problems because they were supporters of Bonnie Prince Charles of Scotland. When he went into exile, many of his followers then left Scotland. The MacReynolds first went to Ireland and then to New England. (In Marjorie’s notes, she says after arriving in America, Rhoda married into the Greene family and her son was Nathaniel Greene.)

The time line of Major General Nathaniel Greene of Warwick Rhode Island was 1742 to 1786 and Catherine Littlefield Greene (Kitty), of Block Island, Rhode Island was 1755 to 1814.

From the marriage of Peter Reynolds the II and Rhoda Mariah Greene, their son, Leman Dyer Reynolds married Catherine Jane Smith of Harper’s Ferry, VA.  She may have come originally from Holland. I have a date here of 1831 in New York next to Leman’s name. Grandma Ruby said Leman was in the Civil War on the Northern side. Their children were named Arzenio, Felicia, Alva, Frank, Rueben, George, Martha and Zilpha.

Arzenio Washington Reynolds was born June 9, 1853 in Southfield, Aukland Co., Michigan. Arzenio married Imogene Nima Nims, born September 6, 1857 in Tioga Co., Pennsylvania.

Grandma used to tell the story that her parents were married March 4, 1874 and came to California as honeymooners. They traveled on the Trans-continental Union Pacific Railroad cars that made the first trip across the continent to California after the railroad was done. Arzenio and Imogene ended up in LA and worked near Los Angeles on the Rosencranz Ranch.

Arzenio and Imogene were real pioneers. They got a homestead and set up housekeeping raising wheat and 10 children. They had acreage in the Perris Valley where they dry farmed barley, late alfalfa, and almond trees. (Today it is named Sun Valley.) They also had pepper trees and century plants.  In Marjorie’s notes she says “For cash money, they ran harvesting machinery to serve the surrounding farmers. Across the valley Lilly Rock formed Strawberry Valley”

Grandma Ruby was born when they were in Menifee, in San Diego County, CA on August 24, 1888.

Marjorie writes, “Ruby was the golden haired songbird, and played the organ, sang when she was not riding. Her hair was so golden that a $20.00 gold piece could be hidden in her hair, and frequently was. Unfortunately at that time women were not given a college education. Ruby finished high school and that was considered enough. But she continued to read and educate herself. She married Roy Crane, one of the harvest hands who was a clean and high principled man.”

 Roy, Daniel Leroy Crane, was born in Stanford, Monroe Co. Indiana June 7, 1884. He was happy kind of guy and loved to play the guitar and sing. Ruby played the piano and accordian. They were a complete band when Roy added the harmonica and his foot pedal drum to the ensemble. His parents were John Nathaniel Crane and Susan Fultz. John Nathaniel was born July 2, 1847 Stanford, Indiana and Susan was born March 28, 1848 in Wellsville Ohio. John’s dad was named John Crane also and he was married to Abigail Burch. John was born February 24, 1806 in Maryland. Abigail was born May 16, 1814 in North Carolina.

Ruby and Grandpa Crane, Roy, got married August 20, 1908, just two days after Ruby’s 20th birthday. Roy was 24 and a farmer too. They were on a ranch in Corona when their first child Lillian was born. From there they went to ranch in Imperial. Next about four miles south of Mexicali, across the border in Old Mexico, Roy and his brother Luther took their families to raise cattle. They were in Mexico for about four years until Pancho Villa made life too dangerous to stay.

Marjorie writes,” Ruby would go to town in a buckboard for supplies and with a revolver. The children were left at the ranch with the Chinese cook. The contraband food came across the border in the false bottoms of the buckboard.”

“Times were primitive there. It was nothing to see the rurales (soldiers) lasso a Chinaman and drag him behind the horse until the poor man was dead. The Chinese would come into Mexico and try to get smuggled into the US. Many died in the attempt. They were robbed and thrown out of conveyances as one would discard a dead dog.”

My great Grandma, Ruby’s mom, Imogene died August 22, 1916 in Santa Ana, Orange County Ca. Great Grandpa Arzenio outlasted Imogene by 21 more years dying in East Los Angeles June 21, 1937. They had sixteen children. Roy was one of 12 kids. Whew! Ruby and Roy had 13, and because 5 died, they ended up with 8 children. Their sons were; Ellis, Stanley, Leslie and David. The daughters were Lillian, Barbara, Marjorie and Marcia. My mom was Marjorie Evelyn Crane, Margie. Grandpa Roy passed on December 10, 1960 and Ruby, true to the long life in her family was 92 when she died, in Chula Vista. San Diego Co., CA November 7, 1980. She was quite a gal!

Notes about Arzenio and Imogene who pioneered in California.

As honeymooners, they came out on the first railroad cars when the final tracks were laid to California. They had a 160 acre homestead in Sun City near Paris where they dry farmed and harvested wheat, but they later had problems with the paperwork.  Ruby said they wrapped a big canvas tarp around a few trees and set up housekeeping. Arzenio had been a school teacher in Michigan where he studied law at Ipsolante College and had some leather bound legal books. He had to take a job at a Sepulveda area gravel pit as a night watchman and later became the postmaster in Paris CA.
