A gross error occurred when Author Goodrich quoted Major Callendar. Callendar arrived in Shoreham,Vermont, with his family in 1774 -- the same year John Reynolds of New Concord purchased land from Roger Stevens, owner. Roger Stevens and Roger Stevens Jun., were the Tories who went to Canada. rr Stevens Jun. signed off on the 1774 purchase while in Quebec, Canada, but not until 1787rch of Latter Day Saints filmed the document -- no argument! Censuses of 1790, 1800, 1810 all list William Reynolds as residing in Shoreham, Vt. His father, John Reynolds, who first resided on Five Mile Point there, in the late 1790's removed first to Panton, Vt., then to Addison, Addison, having purchased 52 acres of land in what was then know as the "8000 acres." By the time of his father John's death, William resigned in Warren County, New York. , During his early years in Shoreham, Vt.,John was known as purchaser of considerable land. John's data is being submitted by a DAR member as a soldier of the Revolutionary War in both New York and Vermont.
