Parents of Lieu JAMES REYNOLDS born RI

Would like to find the parents of Lieu JAMES REYNOLDS born 3-4-1757 South Kingston, RI. He married RACHEL PECKHAM born 1763 RI. They had seven children. Their daughter Mary married BENJAMIN HOPKINS about 1804. After RACHEL died 4-9-1796 in North Kingston, JAMES married EUNICE AUSTIN. They had ten? children. JAMES died 12-3-1846 South Kingston, RI.
I have copies JAMES Revolutionary War papers proving EUNICE is his second wife so she could get his pension. Have information on his daughter, MARY REYNOLDS HOPKINS and her descendants.
Besides JAMES parents, I would like his obit and pix of his grave and RACHEL'S.


Need the parents of BENJAMIN HOPKINS born 1775 in RI,possibly Washington County. He married about 1804 MARY REYNOLDS born 1785 or 86 in South Kingston, RI to Lieu. JAMES & RACHEL PECKHAM REYNOLDS. Their first five children were born in RI. About 1818 the family moved to Smyrna, NY. Here seven more children were born. BENJAMIN died 3-27-1839 the day after his youngest son, NOAH, age 11 died. They are buried in the same grave in Chenango County, NY.
The rest of the family moved to Kendall County, IL after his death.

Besides wanting the names of BENJAMIN'S ancestors, I would like to find the gravesite of BENJAMIN and his son.


Need the names of the parents of JULIUS MELVIN HUBBARD born Oct. 11, 1831 in NY. His mother was born in CT. The family moved to IL when he was young. Did he have brothers & sisters? He married HARRIET M HOPKINS 1859 in IL, moved to IA, then NE, finally MT. I can track him from his marriage to his death. His children were WILLIAM CLARK...named after HARRIET'S father, HARRIET M, died young...named after her mother, JULIA MAE...named after JULIUS or his mother or sister??, CHARLES EUGENE & JAMES EDGAR...named after his father or brother or grandfather??, GEORGE HARPER, killed in a gunfight in CO,...named after HARRIET'S grandfather, JENNIE MYRA...named after JULIUS mother, sister or grandmother??, JOHN BRADFORD...named after JULIUS father, brother or grandfather??.
There is an article on Oakfield, IA with a JULIUS HUBBARD mentioned. Is this my JULIUS HUBBARD?
Also would like to know where JOHN BRADFORD is buried in IA and need the obit & news article of GEORGE HARPER'S death in Bent County, CO. I have a pix of his gravestone.
I have HARRIET HOPKINS ancestors recorded.

looking for answers on LEWIS "LEW" DAVIDSON b IA & others

LEWIS DAVIDSON was born 1872 Glidden, Carroll County, IA to WELCOME "WILLIAM" NATHANIAL & AUGUSTA BALLOU DAVIDSON. The family moved to Pierce County, NE after the 1880 census. LEWIS' mother died 1886. WELCOME remarried to ELIZABETH (born STRAIN) who had been married to a STRAIN, then CHAMBERLAIN, then DARNELL before marrying WELCOME.I have a lot of info on the BALLOU & DAVIDSON ancestors. The 1900 NE census is very wrong. WELCOME & lIBBY had been married 9 years, he in his second marriage, she in her fourth. They had no children together, the sons listed are his, LEWIS & CHARLES. LIBBY was born in OH not Canada. LIBBY had a son, JOHN CHAMBERLAIN...have info on him & pix. Have a pix of a teenage boy who is noted to be adopted son of WELCOME & LIBBY. These two pix are not the same boy. LIBBY'S divorce papers from DARNELL say she has custody of two male children & took back the name CHAMBERLAIN. Back of pix says CHAMBERLAIN, but in her death notice two sons listed, JOHN CHAMBERLAIN & HENRY DAVIDSON? HENRY DAVIDSON was WELCOME'S brother. Did he name his adopted son after his brother? WELCOME had two daughters with AUGUSTA. One is my ggrandmother, MAE HUBBARD, the other MATTIE HUBBARD. I have info on them and CHARLES. But after the 1900 census, LEWIS disappeared. What happened to him and who is the teenage boy? I have WELCOME'S obit from Pierce County, but where is he buried?
