Maximillian Minshew & Mary Bond

Sally’s great-great-great-great Grandparents:

Maximillian Minshew ca 1726 – 1789 | his parents
& ca 1759 Mary Bond ca 1734 – ca 1792 | her parents
of Gates County, North Carolina

Maximillian Minshew and Mary Bond were married ca 1759.

Maxey was the son of Richard Minshew ca 1702 – 1778 and his wife Hannah Blanchard?.
Mary was the daughter of Richard Bond Sr. who died in Gates County in 1793.

Children of Maximillian Minshew and first wife[Elizabeth?]:
1. Zachariah (Zachary) Minshew
(deeded his land to his brother Bond Nov 12, 1792)

somewhere years back I came across something that put in my mind that Maxey Minshew had by a first wife ?Elizabeth twins Zach and Zanra; and the mother died soon after. Maxey then married Mary Bond daughter of the Richard who died in 1793 in Gates County. Also this Zanra grew up and married Abselom Blanshard and after her death Abselom married her half sister Mary Minshew.
Since this is questionable in my mind at present I will place it here in a box since I can find no support for it at present.

Anna Hutchison is my 3rd great grandmother. Her husband was Berry Reynolds,
b. 21 May 1797 in Robertson or Coffee County, TN. d. 30 Dec 1887, Newton Co., MO. He lived to 90 years of age. He was the son of Samuel Reynolds and Mary Jane Gray. Samuel was a Revolutionary Ward soldier. I entered DAR under Samuel Reynolds in about 1977.
Many years ago, I saw the graves of Anna and Berry Reynolds at Pybern Cemetery, in rural Newton County. They are buried on a little knoll that at the time had an iron fence around it (on a farm). There were maybe 8 to 10 graves there. It is on private property. The owner showed me Capps Creek and the location of earlier graves bordering the creek. There were only rocks that marked each burial space in a field by the creek. He also showed me the location of Berry and Anna’s pioneer cabin, also near Capps Creek. This was in December 1975. It was a moving moment in my family research.
