then Halifax County, Virginia, then in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, on the
Greene-Oglethorpe County line by c. 1798. Reynolds Cemetery near Woodville,
Greene County, Georgia. James Reynolds, Sr. was married to Susannah/Sukey
Malone, daughter of Daniel Malone, Sr. who died in Halifax County,
Virginia, in 1795. Two of James Reynolds, Sr.'s daughters married Durhams.
Patsy Reynolds married Samuel Durham in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, in 1801.
William Durham married Rebecca Reynolds in 1805 in Greene County, Georgia.
The exact relationship between the two Durham men is not known except that
they were probably some sort of cousins. This branch of Durhams came
through New Kent County, Virginia, fell into St. Paul's Parish, Hanover
County, Virginia. Was probably in Georgia by c. 1787. There were also
several other Durham-Reynolds marriages between the Durhams and Reynolds
families in later generations. Jeremiah Lindsey was a neighbor of the
Durhams in St. Paul's Parish, Hanover County, Virginia, and he came to
Oglethorpe-Greene County, near Woodville, c. 1794. Families intermarried in

So please come if you have an interest in Durham family history. If you
think you might be interested in having a copy of my Durham printout from my
(PAF) computer genealogy file, 200 + pages, please let me know with an
up-date on the new generations of your family since our last reunion in
2002. Cost for a book has not been determined. Hope to cover cost of
printer ink, paper, binding comb etc., padded envelop if you want one mailed
later. Contact me off line.
All branches of Durhams with connections to this family are welcome for the
price of lunch. If you need a special diet bring something you can eat
particularly if you are diabetic. Cousin Mike does not have a concept of
green vegetables and fruit. His idea of a salad bar is potato salad. Get
gas for your car/truck in Washington, Greensboro, etc. before you come if
you need it. Cell phone service and Internet connections don't work there.

Her father Jackson Booles/Bowles was the one with the "plantation", owner of
22 slaves at one time. His "plantation" was located near Temperance Bell
