Clarkson Reynolds is my great, great grandfather.  I would love to share with you the correct information and his birth and death dates, etc.  He and his wife Olinda were an amazing couple.  I am so proud of him! I am so proud of these two!  I will send info as I find it.  Here are 2 pages on the patent on the land you mentioned on Clarkson and Olinda.  It was actually 160 acres! I'm also sending a picture of  his wife, Olinda B. Routh Reynolds taken about 1853.
