My 2-G grandfather, William Barton Reynolds (b.20 Jun 1820 d. 1882) and his brother Isaac Wilson Reynolds (b. 30 Jan 1810 d. 18 Jan 1855) both list their birthplace as Indiana in the censuses of 1850 and 1860, although they both lived most of their lives in Tennessee.  Y-DNA tests for living male descandants of these men show that they are very closely related to persons with the Stephens surname.  Their putative father, William Reynolds (b.25 Feb 1780 d. 1828)or Runnells, was married first to a Sarah Barton (b. 9 Mar 1787 or 88 d. 7 Jan 1822)and second to a Sarah White (dates unknown). I believe that William B. and Isaac may have been adoptees although their father may have been the adoptee.
