This past Monday evening I had one of those delightful genealogical experiences that occur from time to time. Out of the blue I received an email message from a distant cousin who is descended from a sister of my great grandmother Mary Anna Reynolds Holladay. The Reynolds-Holladay family connections go back to the very early days of the settlements south of Green River which are now a part of Green and Adair Counties in South-Central Kentucky. The gentleman who sent the message found me through the surnames of my Adair County ancestors that I posted a couple of years ago on the Adair County page of Kentucky Genweb (http://www.kykinfolk.com/adair/surnames.htm) These postings sometimes take years to produce results, and it is very important that you keep a current email address posted – you never know when a distant relative with valuable information will find your listing. My newly-found Reynolds cousin and I have been exchanging emails at a great rate and I am now drafting a short writeup on the Reynolds-Holladay connections for posting to this site. I would be delighted to hear from other descendants of Henry Reynolds (1778-1849) and Nancy Ann Sallee (1783-1859) of Adair County, Kentucky.
