ANTOINE REYNAL (17400000)

Dr. Antoine Reynal, one of the pioneer doctor's of St. Louis and St. Charles, Missouri, was born around the year 1740, the exact date and place unknown. He most likely came from France, but may have traveled to Louisiana from Canada or even from the island of Martinique in the Caribbean. It is not known where he spent his early years, however being a physician, he may have been educated in France as there were few, if any, medical schools in the United States prior to 1750. Reynal appeared in Louisiana in the late 1760's or early 1770's, where (according to his will) he was married to Marie Toupart at Cote des Allemans in "base" Louisiana. The present town of des Allemands is located about thirty miles southwest of New Orleans in the Mississippi River delta. The year of the Reynal-Toupart marriage is not known. The territory of Louisiana had been explored by Robert Cavelier in 1682, and was named by him for King Louis XVI of France. The early settlers of Louisiana were creole's, meaning mixed-blood. This Louisiana Territory in 1682 covered most of the land west of the Mississippi River. New Orleans was founded in 1718 and became the capital of the Territory in 1722. By 1731 this area was considered a royal colony of France. In 1762, France secretly ceded the town of New Orleans and all the area west of the Mississippi to Spain. Spain took possession of this land, against the opposition of the French extraction settlers, in 1769. The Acadians from Nova Scotia had moved into this area between 1760 and 1790 and it is possible that Dr. Antoine Reynal could have been with this distinct group of early settlers.

By the year 1774, Antoine and Marie Toupart Reynal were living in the village of Ste. Genevieve, located on the Mississippi River in Upper Louisiana, in present-day Missouri. Ste. Genevieve was settled originally by pioneers from present-day Illinois in 1735, the first permanent settlement in present-day Missouri. This village on the Mississippi River is located about forty miles south of present-day St. Louis. The record of their stay in Ste. Genevieve is documented by the record of the birth of their child, Andre Reynal. The Catholic Church of Ste. Genevieve Baptismal Register 1759-1810 records the baptism of Andre, son of Antoine Raynold (sic) and Marie Doupard (sic) on July 8, 1774. The Reynal name is spelled several ways in various records, as is the Toupart name, however, they all show the first names as Antoine and Marie. No other mention of their son, Andre, is found in any of the later family records.

In the History of St. Louis City and County, Vol. II, 1883, by J. Thomas Scharf, states "Dr. Antoine Reynal appears from the archives to have been the third surgeon in St. Louis, from the year 1776. In the year 1777, he purchased from one Jean Huge, the west half of the block on the east side of Third Street, from Market to Chestnut Streets, with a log house at the south end, fronting on Market Street, opposite the Catholic Graveyard. The north end of this lot, at the southeast corner of Chestnut and Third Streets, is now (1883) occupied by the Missouri Republican building. Dr. Reynal lived here for about 23 years, and sold the property to Eugenio Alvarez, in November, 1799. He subsequently removed to St. Charles, where he died." In Pioneer Families of Missouri, 1876, by Wm. S. Bryan and Robert Rose, states

Billion' says that Dr. Antoine Reynal came to St. Louis circa 1776 and remained there until 1799, when he sold his property and moved to St. Charles.

It is thus established that Antoine and Marie Toupart Reynal came to live in St. Louis in 1776, the same year that America declared its independence.

During the years from 1776 until Dr. Reynal and his family moved to the village of St. Charles in 1799, various documents surface from many sources, mainly the Missouri Historical Society, indicating that Reynal was a well known and active frontier doctor. Most of these documents were written in French or Spanish script, the majority being in French. Examples include the following; an April 24, 1778 paper is a testament of Andre Vignon, stating "in whose house (Reynal's) Mignon resides, and also a recipient in his will." Another document dated February 2, 1780 mentions "bounds Francois Bissonett on side of the street." A document dated July 22, 1780 describes " in whose house (Reynal's) Pierre Masse, also Picard resides." A September 29, 1783 paper deals with Reynal as a buyer in the Chaurion public sale, referring to Reynal, but not signed by him. A July 4, 1784 document, signed by Antoine Reynal and Marie Toupart, is listed as a will by the Missouri Historical Society. One of the more interesting papers regarding Reynal, signed by him and written in French, is dated December 28, 1785. It is a part of the Chouteau-Papin Collection at the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis, and was translated from the French by Marie Avery of Eastfield College, Mesquite, Texas, and reads as follows:

Concerning the orderly of Francois Auzat, Lieutenant Colonel of the Armies of his Very Catholic Majesty, Commander in Chief, First Lieutenant Governor of the western part of Illinois: Our Antoine Reynal took on the duties of this job at St. Louis.

We report that the 21st of the month of December, 1785, after eight hours of travel (search) we managed to arrive at La Cotte. Near this village at the side of the barn belonging to Dame Veuve Chouteau (the widow of Chouteau) we found a black man lying dead on the ground in front of the door of said barn, flat on his back, turned with his head toward Cotte, the east, and the feet to the west, lying all stretched out. We found nearby a shell (ball) coming from a -- firearm named 'Pretoralles' (perhaps musket or flintlock) which had come from one side to the other passing between the first ribs from the back and we notice the wound (to be) four fingers from the spine (backbone), and this had undoubtedly caused his death. In view of this we gave him (the corpse) a blessing (burial?) and left him there as is the proper thing to do. This is from Raifon at St. Louis, the 28th of November, 1785.

(signed) Reynal

Several other documents, including a July, 1787 paper signed by Reynal and Francois Cruzat, lists receipts for calls (as a doctor?) on Louis Cancellier, from 1783 to 1785. Another paper dated August 24, 1789, written in French and signed by Antonio Reynal, y Marie Tupar (sic), indicates they received a donation from Jean Baptiste Bouvet in their favor. On December 21, 1790, Antoine Reynal was a witness on a paper written in Spanish.

In 1791, Antoine and Marie Toupart Reynal became, it is believed for the second time, the parents of a son, which they named Antoine Reynal, Jr. The St. Louis Genealogy Society Quarterly, Vol. III, No. 4, 1970, states:

Antoine Reynal was baptized on May 10, 1791, with Antoine Reynal and Marie Touport (sic) as parents. This baptism should have been in the St. Louis Cathedral.

According to other records, Dr. Reynal would have been around fifty years of age at the date of the birth of his son, Antoine Reynal, Jr.

A document in French, dated August 16, 1793, from the P. Chouteau Moffitt Collection at the Missouri Historical Society states:

Dr. Reynal was paid in lead on his account with Joseph Hortiz.

This account may have been for medical services rendered by Reynal.

On September 1, 1796, Dr. Reynal sent a letter, written in Spanish, to the Baron de Carondelet in New Orleans, the headquarters of the Spanish Regime. Due to the secret agreement with France, the Spanish controlled the Louisiana Territory from 1762 until 1800. The letter from Reynal to the Baron was concerning certain mining rights in Illinois and was translated by Marie Avery as follows:

FOR GOVERNOR ONAL

Don Antonio Reynal, surgeon, in this town of St. Louis, Illinois, a resident in good standing, taken on this after careful reflexion and in the most respectful manner possible. He asks for the honor, under your permission, to be allowed to establish an underground mine of good quality with the only purpose of making some money for his use and letting the citizens be informed of it. He will hire citizens and they are obligated to conduct the work so that the prices will not be exhorbitant for him. As for the proximity and conduct of the mine, he will put the most practical methods to use and will see that some examiners oversee the mine as they take out the ore, and he asks that he may send you this request for you to examine. Since this will do nothing other than benefit for the citizens and it will make jobs for some individuals in these jobs (a living for), it will be advantageous to permit him to do this. It will be of use to you and will keep the prices equalized without prejudice in the state and without hurting any persons as a result of your decision. He really begs you do concede to him the exclusive right to exploit this material (profit from the mine) for a term of six or seven years that large gains will be made and that the experimentation will enhance things. So the supplicant plans to establish himself in these parts of Illinois (remain a citizen here) and perhaps after he has established this other riches than he will contribute 11, 15, 16 (?-money) to the exploration. (he plans to expand his company) Other mineral exploration without permission should not be permitted, although such person may be ignorant that this (such exploration) may be an infraction. Also the hopeful supplicant begs you to give him a Property Title to place where this mine is located. I want to name as witnesses M. Rio and the wife of Bager until the establishment of Sr. Carlos de las Pequenas (presumably the name of the mine or person who will manage it) until it can be situated on the Missouri River. Many people without Reauthorization and not having asked for mining rights, tho they may not realize their infraction, are mining and I don't know precisely where these mines are situated, might poorly influence the whole thing. My request might get them to ask permission, thanks to you if you can grant me this request with great justification from his Majesty Luis I --

September 6, 1796

(signed) Antoine Reynal

The reply from the Baron of Carondelet is as follows:

New Orleans, 17 of October, 1796 --

Conceded (granted) with the primary condition that tract of land begins to be of benefit precisely within six months and that the supplicant limits himself exclusively to the land to which he will hold title and that the Governor of this part of Illinois establish its (the mine's) boundaries and lines (metes and bounds) so that it will be of understood extension (size). The Government will expedite this Decree of Concession (Land Title) for the correspondent.

(signed) The Baron of Carondelet

An attached note written personally by the Baron of Carondelet read as follows:

I commend the correspondent on his discretion in the way he handled this tract of land in his concession in arranging all as it should be. May God guard you for many years-

New Orleans

For Don Antonio Reynal

(Signed) The Baron of Carondelet

The letter by Dr. Reynal and its reply would indicate that the good doctor was not only a successful surgeon, but also an aspiring businessman. Present-day Missouri may have been known as Illinois in 1796, as both St. Louis and the Missouri River, near where the mine was likely to be located, are in the State of Missouri today. St. Louis was founded in 1764 by Pierre Linquest, twelve years before Reynal arrived there. No mention is made in Reynal's letter of the type of mineral to be mined if granted permission. His letter mentioned "ore," but not what kind of ore. The area around St. Louis had been first explored by Father Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet and in 1673 they marked the spot where the Missouri River joins the Mississippi, a few miles north of present-day St. Louis.

Early Indian tales of gold and silver attracted many Frenchmen to the area and several trading posts were built along the Mississippi River. They found salt and lead instead of silver and gold. Many remained to mine these minerals, primarily in St. Francois county, south of St. Louis, adjoining the Mississippi River. No later records have surfaced concerning this mining venture of Dr. Reynal's, and whether it was a success or failure is not known.

Reynal named one Louis Barthelemiues as his attorney in a document dated March 30, 1797, written in French and explaining the appointment. Two years later, in 1799, another document in French lists the receipts of Reynal as part of the accounts owing of Victorie Richelet, deceased. It was in the year 1799 that the Antoine Reynal family left the small city of St. Louis, moving west a few miles to the even smaller city of St. Charles. This move may have been to enhance the doctor's land purchase opportunities and also to practice medicine in an unknown area.

The same year (1799) that Reynal moved to St. Charles, another man known as the "greatest frontiersman of America" - Daniel Boone pulled up stakes in Point Pleasant (in present-day West Virginia) and headed west to live in the St. Charles territory. The Spanish Regime controlled this land under it's agreement with France and these Spanish granted Daniel Boone an 800 acre tract of land in the Femme Osage District, about forty miles west of St. Louis. In 1800 the Spanish appointed Boone a "Syndic" or Judge. Dr. Reynal may have become acquainted with Daniel Boone shortly after both moved into the St. Charles area. In the History of St. Charles County (p.p. 125-126), the meeting of the two men is documented, as follows:

William Henry Harrison (later President of the U.S ), who was in 1803 Governor of Indiana Territory, and under whose jurisdiction was Upper Louisiana (Missouri) appointed Francois Saucier, Arend Rutgers, Daniel Morgan Boone, Francois Duquette and Robert Spencer, or any three of them, to hold a Court of Common Pleas in and for the District of St. Charles. The first term of the court was held on the first Tuesday in January, 1805, in the house of Dr. Antoine Reynal on the site of the present courthouse (late 1800' s) . Francois Saucier was chief justice, Daniel Morgan Boone, Francois Duquette and Robert Spencer, associates Justices. Rufus Eaton was Attorney General and Makay Wherry, Edward

Hemphill and Antoine Reynal performed the duties of Sheriff, Clerk and Coroner, (respectively).

In 1805, Sheriff Mackay Wherry made the first tax assessment for the St. Charles District. At this time the returns showed a population of 765 in the district, consisting of 275 head of households, 95 single men, and 55 slaves. The County of St. Charles was established or organized in 1812. The county had no definite limits, extending from the Missouri River on the South, to the British possession to the North, the Mississippi River on the East and the Pacific Ocean on the West. In 1818, after several reorganizations, St. Charles county was reduced to its present dimensions.

The Spanish had controlled the Upper Louisiana Territory until 1800, when its power over this land was returned to France. In 1803 the French sold this vast Louisiana Territory to the United States, resulting in the subsequent appointments of Antoine Reynal and Daniel Boone to district offices by William Henry Harrison that same year. There may be some question whether Daniel Morgan Boone is the Daniel Boone. No middle name is usually associated with this famous frontiersman. The World Book Encyclopedia, (1973 Edition), does not include a middle name for Daniel Boone, however all other details of his move to St. Charles Territory are in agreement with the above details. Boone remained in the St. Charles Territory until his death in 1820 at 86 years of age. In 1812 he had lost his land that the Spanish had granted to him in 1799, due to the change of authority from France to the United States. In 1814, the U.S. Congress restored this land to Boone as a reward to the man that had "opened the way for millions of his fellow men." Boone hunted to the west, making only one trip back to his old home in Kentucky. He was visiting his son Nathan, who also lived nearby in Missouri, when he died in 1820. He and his wife's remains were later removed in 1845 to Frankfort, Kentucky for reburial. His home near Defiance, Missouri still stands today.

The home of Dr. Reynal in St. Charles, used as the site of the historic meeting place in 1805, was also the later site of the courthouse in St. Charles in the late 1800's. What type of home did this French extraction family build when they moved to St. Charles? There are descriptions of what the Reynal home looked like and its surroundings. In 1869, the 100th anniversary of the founding of St. Charles, William A. Lynch, a friend of the Reynal's, wrote a letter describing the Reynal home in that city:

The first settlement in Saint Charles, on the Missouri River, was made in the year 1769, just one hundred years ago. Prominent among the inhabitants of that ancient village, was Dr. Antoine Reynal; a gentleman of cultivated taste, a liberal education, and in affluent on easy circumstances; as evidenced by the improvements he made upon his grounds, and the style he lived. He erected the largest and finest dwelling house in the village at that time; It was built in the old french style, with porches or verandas all around the house, he cultivated a large garden, adorned with flowers and shrubbery, and enriched with a variety of fruit trees, of the finest quality. In sinking a well, in the rear of his house, at the depth of 20 feet, the workman came upon the remains of a camp fire, that had been built on the rocks; also an Indian, or stone axe. The fire brands was in a good state of preservation; and apparently in the position, as when first placed there. The stone axe was of large size, well made of a hard greyish coloured stone, and finely finished. The axe was retained in the family of his only son, as late as 1829 or perhaps later. I have often seen and handled the axe. I occupied a room in the old family mansion in 1824. And was familiar with the premises, and the location of the well at that time.

The grounds and dwelling house of Dr. Reynal, was on the west side of the main street, and the present courthouse in St. Charles, is built on the site of the old Reynal mansion. The well must have been some five or six hundred feet east from the river bank. The bluffs, or hills in the rear; must have been very large and high at some former time, for it must necessarily have taken a very large amount of earth, to have created so large a plateau of ground, as the town of St. Charles was built on. It is evident the fire was built on the rocky shore between the bluffs and the river. And the enquiry naturally arises, at what time, and by whom? was these remains left there? was the axe forgotten and left by accident or was the party surprised and left in haste? was the fire extingused by rain, or covered over by an avalance from the bluffs, alas: there is no one to answer them. There was a tradition among the old Indian tribes, and give to the earlier settlers, by an aged Indian, that the river was at one time, extended from bluff to bluff, at St. Charles, and it is apparent that the general stage of the river, was formerly much higher than at present. The above facts, and history of finding the axe, was given to me by Mr. Antoine Reynal; a son of Dr. Reynal, Sr.

The above letter is contained in the St. Charles Papers at the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis. There is no doubt that Lynch knew the Reynal's, as he had attested a document dated December 29, 1832, between Antoine Reynal, Jr. and Chas. S. Hempstead.

In 1960, a controversy erupted regarding a building that Dr. Reynal may have built in St. Charles. The razing of the old St. Charles Fur Trading Post structure at 10-14 East Clay St. was imminent by the property owner, the First National Bank. The bank, owners of the property, wanted to convert the site into a parking lot. The St. Charles Daily Banner News carried the headline: "Delay Razing of Historical Site." Mrs. Edna McElhinney Olson of the St. Charles Historical Society reported in the story that "offers of donations to save the structure have been made." The story stated that "the trading post was built in 1804, and it is a 2 story building with full basement. The original stone masonry is covered with cement." Research by the St. Charles Historical Society regarding this building included the following memorandum:

No. 10-14 East Clay Street Between Main and River St. Charles Fur Trading Company

This building is one of the most outstanding historical buildings in St. Charles and is one of the oldest. I am sorry to tell you that this marvelous old building is to be torn down to make way for a parking space soon. It was built in 1804 by Dr. Antoine Reynal. It is made of beautiful clear Burlington stone. It is a two-story building with a complete basement. It is a perfect example of pure French architecture, with its overhanging 36 inch French roof and the French curved brickwork in the chimney. Originally the windows were of small pane glass (These have been replaced by large plate glass windows). The windows were arranged to provide crossventilation, and originally all four front doors and all the windows had shutters with adjustable slats. The walls are 18 inches thick. This building was originally built to be used for protection in case of an Indian siege. It was surrounded by a stockade and extended to the River so as to furnish water in case of a siege. (In the early 1800's, the Indians were still very much abundance in the St. Charles area).

In 1808 this historical building became the famous St. Charles Fur Trading Post. Dr. Antoine Reynal operated the post. This building was perfect for the fur trade business. The basement was used for curing furs. The main floor which was originally also one large room was used for fur storage. The St. Charles Fur Trading Company, as it was called, had its own boat landing. Records tell us of the keel boats docking at this pier. The largest transaction of furs and peltries is recorded in Book # 283. Thirty-eight packs of furs were sold in this one deal, which consisted of 120 fox skins, 80 beaver skins, 80 raccoon skins, 600 muskrat skins, 9 elk skins, and 8 bear skins. Again our records show that Manuel Liza (Lisa), one of the most prominent fur traders of St. Louis, was a frequent trader here. One of the most unusual stories in the archives of the St. Charles Fur Trading Company is that Black Buffalo, chief of the Tebon Sioux Indians, came to St. Charles on a conference and a fur trading expedition. He became ill, and Dr. Antoine Reynal took care of him. This was in January of 1812. He died in St. Charles that same month. The bier of this famous chief was held at the St. Charles Fur Trading Post. During that time all business transactions were suspended. This was due to the fact that the Sioux Indians furnished more furs for the trading post than did any of the other Indians. Records show that Jean Baptiste Point de Sable (the founder of Chicago) transacted sales at this famous post. We have an original transaction signed by him. No. 126 tells of transactions of Pierre Chouteau buying furs here. Dr. Antoine Reynal was not well, and in 1820 at the age of 79 he decided that the fur business was slacking and it was time to quit. In 1820 the Masonic Lodge rented this entire building, and this remained as the Masonic Lodge approximately 30 years. The moving of the Masons to this building became necessary in the year 1820 when they received notice to vacate 214 Main Street (Peck's Row), as the rooms in Peck's Row were to be remodeled to make the great Assembly Hall to be used as the first capitol of Missouri. Next this building was used as a soap factory. An interesting ad in the archives reads "The Saint Charles Soap Factory offers 1¢ a pound for pure clean grease, or will trade one pound of pure clean grease for one cake of pure clean soap." The soap factory was followed by a candle factory. Another ad tells us "Buy our candles. They will make your home at night as light as day." Then followed the starch factory, and then it became the St. Charles Pottery Factory. A few of these flower pots and milk churns have been found and are exhibited with the St. Louis Historical Society. Then this old - (End of Memorandum)

Mrs. Olson of the St. Charles Historical Society had written to a Mr. Charles van Ravenswaay, most likely with the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis, during this 1960 period in regard to the razing of the building on Clay Street. Mrs. Olson submitted to van Ravenswaay the information contained in the above memorandum. His reply to Mrs. Olson is as follows:

2/1/60

Dear Edna: After a good many days of searching, Mrs. Ellen Harris, our Manuscript Room Librarian, has assembled a good deal of information which simply boils down to the fact that Dr. Antoine Reynal owned a Creole type house (apparently wooden) on the site of the old Court House, and we have a manuscript account of this house and adjacent orchards and gardens, written in the 1860's by William A. Lynch who visited the house in 1824. (See Lynches letter above) There is no evidence anywhere that Reynal was ever a fur trader, and I suspect that most of your information has come from fairly recent and inaccurate accounts, such as Walter Williams' History of Missouri and other sources, in which authors became confused about Duqette's windmill on top of the hill, which historians have sometimes called a fort. (Probably the same Francois Duquette that was appointed an associate justice by Harrison in 1803) On January 13, 1800 Reynal did buy a lot 120 feet wide and 150 feet deep, with a log house and outbuildings surrounded by a picket fence, on Rue Royale, from Pierre Gagon. Could this have been lot No. 13? If Reynal later built a stone house on it, we have no record of it, and we do have the 1815 tax list and other manuscript material which we have checked.

Mr. van Ravenswaay also wrote a memorandum to Mrs. Olson, which included the following excerpts. "In the same year (1800) Dr. Reynal acquired a tract of land in the village of St. Charles from the same Claude Panneton" and "One can question the spelling in the articles. Although there are many versions of Reynal, the first name is invariably Antoine."

These various memorandums and letters include the following tax list entries:

Antoine Reynal appears in the 1815 Territorial Tax Records, a 'Triplicate List' of Taxable Persons in Townships of Portage des Sioux, St. Charles, Dardenne, Lower and Upper Cuivre and Femme Osage in the County of St. Charles, as follows:

P. 116-Antoine Reynalds (sic), 40 arpens near St Charles, original claimants unknown, town lots 4, valuation $1500, Slaves 3, amount of taxes $6.61½.

P. 38-Antoine Reynalds (sic), 40 arpens, Town lots and improvements, 4, valuation, $800, slaves above 10 years old, 3, amount of taxes $4.51.

P. 222-Antoine Reynolds, Jr. (sic), town lot 1, St. Charles Field, original owner P. Ripley, valuation $600, slaves over 10 years old, 1, taxes $2.42½.

Antoine Reynolds (sic), original claimant A. Raynolds, town Lot 1, valuation $5000, slaves 2, taxes $16.25.

P. 328-Antoine Reynald (sic), 80 arpens confirmed land, St. Charles 4 town lots.

Although there is a question as to whether Dr. Antoine Reynal actually founded and operated the St. Charles Fur Trading Post, the records of the fur trading post seem to strongly indicate that he did own the building and did remain in the business until 1820. Although the tax records researched by van Ravenswaayts staff found no entries regarding this building, these early day records were many times incomplete or lost and the fur company's records seem to hold more credence in this question. Reynal's son, Antoine, Jr., was also later connected with the fur trading business, lending more credence to the likelihood that the building was a fur trading post and was owned and run by Dr. Reynal.

During this period, Dr. Reynal purchased land outside St. Charles in the nearby village of Portage des Sioux. He most likely never lived in this village, which is a few miles north of St. Louis on the Mississippi River, however many of his later day relatives, including his son, Antoine, Jr., did live there for many years. The name of the village Portage des Sioux, is French meaning "Crossing of the Sioux". The Court Records - Township of St. Charles, Taxable Property at Portage des Sioux, Missouri 1807 lists: "Antoine Reynold (sic) being taxed on 10 acres, 1 house, 1 horse mill, 3 houses, 8 neat cattle and 1 slave. "

Other recorded information on Dr. Reynal during this period of the early 1800's included: A June 29, 1807 document that Reynal signed to a Jn. Hortiz, which spoke of his "obligation and money held by a Mr. Harte."

In Pioneer Families of Missouri, (Pub- 1876) by Wm. Bryan and Robert Rose, the following excerpt states:

Pierre Pallardie, who was probably the oldest living native of St. Charles County, being born there in 1800, stated he remembered Reynal as one of the several early day physicians that practiced in St. Charles city and county in his early years there.

From a clipping in the Doctors Scrapbook, (p. 44), in the archives of the Missouri Historical Society, entitled: "Passing of the Old-Type Country Doctor and his Shay" published in the 1920's or 1930's in either the St. Louis Globe-Democrat or the St. Louis Post-Dispatch according to Lois Stanley, St. Louis genealogist, the following excerpt stated:

A year after Conde's death another Doctor, Antoine Reynal, came to St. Louis and settled. He remained here a number of years before going to St. Charles where he engaged in practice. For a whole year after he arrived he was the only doctor here and his practice was so lucrative that he purchased Considerable land. Among that which he purchased was the west half of that block bounded by 2nd, 3rd and Market and Chestnut Streets. After he departed there was no doctor in St. Louis for several months, the sick having to depend upon a doctor coming from St. Charles.

In 1812, the United States Congress organized the Missouri Territory, which had a population of around 20,000 at that time. The farming and mining industries were fairly well established. The Indians of this territory resented the influx of the many settlers and led frequent and bloody attacks on them. The War of 1812 erupted the same year between the U.S. and Britain, with the British supplying weapons to the Indians and encouraging them to attack the Missouri settlers. Forts and blockhouses were built, such as the ones mentioned earlier in St. Charles, with the Indians persisting in their raids for the next three years. In 1815, the U.S. Government Officials and the Indians signed a peace treaty at Portage des Sioux, where Dr. Reynal owned land and where his son, Antoine Reynal, Jr. was living at the time. The Reynal family must have felt in jeopardy from these Indian raids during this period.

The wife of Dr. Reynal, Marie Toupart Reynal, is mentioned in several documents during this time, as is their son, Antoine Reynal, Jr. Marie's signature is affixed on several of these papers and the son is mentioned as a witness with his father to two marriages in 1806 and 1807. During the years from 1800 until 1821, Dr. Reynal practiced medicine and invested in real estate in the St. Charles and Portage des Sioux area. Several documents indicate land transactions and he was apparently the recipient of a land grant from the Spanish after his move to St. Charles in 1799. Other tax lists record his ownership of acreage on considerable size. His investment in this land and possibly the fur trading business, along with his medical practice, resulted in Reynal being probably one of the wealthiest men in St. Charles by the year 1820.

Antoine Reynal's last will and testament was written in French and is dated April 24, 1820. The original of his will is in the archives of the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis. A copy of this will was obtained by the author and was translated into English by Mr. Francois Vigeron, a French native living in Rowlett, Texas. This will reads as follows:

County of St. Charles, January 17, 1822. Then filed for record the last will & Testament of Antoine Reynal, pere deceased - Marie Toupart his widow named executrix there in hearing date the 24th April 1820 - of which the following is a Copy of:

In the name of the father, the son and the spirit.

First of all, I want to live and die under the authority of our father, the Pope, in the catholique apostholique and Roman Religion. After have the sign of the cross and having recommended myself to God the Creator, asking him humbly, by the death of his son Jesus Christ, to forgive my sins, washed by his precious blood, and when his will be to call me from this world, to let him put me with the Happy-ones, in his heavenly kingdom, I pray to his saints and to the glorious Virgin Mary, his dignified mother of St. Michel, St. Jean, and all the saints of Heaven, and so, I ask all of those offended to forgive me as I forgive to those who offended me.

The above will was later filed for record on the 9th of February, 1822, in the office of William Christy, Jr., the Official Recorder of St. Charles County, Missouri.

The last will of Dr. Reynal, written in his hand at the age of 79 years, reveals to the reader many facets of his life. To whom and where he was married, his place of residence, his religion, the members of his family and to a great extent, his wealth. Reynal states that he was married to Marie Toupart, without marriage contract, which probably meant that a formal marriage contract with her family was not drawn up. This was to put them on the "safe side." He also reserved himself a child born in bondage, son of "pouponne" of mixed blood. Reynal also stated that his slave, Andre, natural son of Replit, was to have his freedom. During this period many wealthy men had their legal or social family and also had a second family with mixed-blood women. This child of "pouponne" was probably his own and he felt responsible for its welfare. This may have been the case with Andre, who was not yet of legal age when he wrote his will.

The Marriage Records of St. Charles County, Missouri 1805-1844 lists the following entry:

15 August, 1827, Francis St. Croix Du Richeve married to Clarisse Reynal, called Pouponne, having formerly belonged to Anthony Reynal, Sr. -(married) by Verhagen, C. P. (Priest)

Clarisse Reynal was most likely the "pouponne" mentioned in Reynal's will of 1820. She may have been a very young mixed-blood girl when the child was born, and as a mature women in 1827, was married to Du Richeve, six years after Reynal's death. The sixth entry of his will is confusing, stating that "I give properties to Antoine Reynal, my Grandson and Godson." None of the records that I have secured mention a grandson Antoine {so we assume son was the correct translation}. The 200,000 piastres left to his son Antoine, Jr., was apparently a handsome sum in 1820. Dr. Reynal was also a slave owner for many years according to the records and was also the owner of a large amount of land. Another document dated in 1836 describes land in field notes of property on the Doit Delany land near Creve Coeur Lake and the Mississippi River, and indicated that it was a part of land granted to Reynal by the Spanish Government.

Dr. Antoine Reynal was to die in St. Charles, Missouri in 1821 at the age of eighty years. This was the same year that Missouri became a state of the United States. The St. Charles Missourian of December 20, 1821 carried this notice:

A notice of the death of Dr. Antoine Reynal of this place, Monday, Age 80.

Houck's History of Missouri, Vol II, states:

Item: Antoine Reynal died in St. Charles in 1821 at the age of 80.

These recorded dates of his age at death indicates Reynal was born around the years 1740 or 1741, probably in France, Canada, or possibly the Martinique Island in the Caribbean. The de Reynal families of the Toulouse section of France had settled there in the 1600's. His parentage, early life and education in not known at this writing. Lynch's letter of 1869 states that Reynal was an intelligent and educated person, which would lead one to surmise that he may have been born and schooled in France. Whether he attended a medical school is not known, however he was a surgeon and likely did receive formal medical training.

The Original Probate Records of St. Charles County, Missouri, (p. 2), shows that Reynal's will was probated in the County Court on the 17th of January, 1822. Marie Toupart Reynal was named sole executrix of the estate and the probate was recorded on February 19, 1822. These same probate records, pages 35 and 36, dated April 2, 1824, state that the last will and testament of Antoine Reynal-Pere- was probated on October 4, 1821. The original will of Antoine Reynal was written on April 24, 1820 and this October, 1821 probate would have been two months before his death. In the 1824 probate records, Antoine Reynal fils (son) was named the Administrator of the estate. This could indicate that Marie Toupart Reynal, his widow, had either died or had become incapacitated, with her son assuming the role of administrator.

An 1830 document describing a mortgage for land mentioned in the 1820 will reveals that Marie Toupart Reynal was deceased at the date of the document. Marie Toupart, the widow of Dr. Antoine Reynal, was to die within ten years of his death. It is assumed that she is also buried in St. Charles, Missouri.

THE CHILDREN OF ANTOINE REYNAL (17400000) AND MARIE TOUPART

(17740708) ANDRE REYNAL, b. July 8, 1774 at Ste Genevieve, Upper Louisiana Territory, baptized at the Catholic Church of Ste. Genevieve. Date and place of death unknown.

(17910500) ANTOINE REYNAL, JR., b. May, 1791 at St. Louis, Upper Louisiana Territory. Baptized May 10, 1791 at St. Louis Cathedral, m. Louise Saucier prior to 1812, d. June 6, 1859 at Portage des Sioux, Missouri, bu. Portage des Sioux, Missouri.

ANDRE REYNAL (17740708)

ANDRE REYNAL, the first recorded child and son of Antoine and Marie Toupart Reynal was born at Ste. Genevieve, Upper Louisiana Territory in 1774. The Reynal family moved from Ste. Genevieve to Ste. Louis in 1776. No mention is made of Andre after that date and it is presumed that he died as an infant. Date and place of death and burial place is not known.

ANTOINE REYNAL, JR. (17910500)

ANTOINE REYNAL, JR., the recorded second son and child of Antoine and Marie Toupart Reynal, was born in the month of May, 1791 in St. Louis, Upper Louisiana Territory. He was baptized on May 10, 1791 in the St. Louis Cathedral. He would have been around eight years of age when his doctor father and family moved to St. Charles, Upper Louisiana Territory, in the year 1799. Nothing is known of his early years or education, however, being the son of a prominent doctor of some wealth, it can be assumed that he received schooling or tutoring, as he could read and write, and later was involved in many business transactions. In the years 1806 and 1807, Antoine, Jr., along with his father, witnessed the marriages of Francois Baribeaut to Euphroaine Saucier and Michael Deroy to Eulalie Barrads. His name appears in the 1815 Territorial Tax Records, showing taxable persons in the Townships of Portage des Sioux, St. Charles, Dardenne, Lower and Upper Cuivre and Femme Osage in the County of St. Charles:

Antoine Reynolds (sic) Jr., town lot 1, St. Charles Field, original owner P. Ripley, valuation $600.00, slaves over ten years old, 1, taxes $2.42½

He was married to Louise(a) Saucier on or before the year 1812, the year of their first child's birth. They were living in the village of Portage des Sioux in 1812, and the 1815 tax list would also indicate Reynal, Jr. was a land and slave owner. The 1820 will of Antoine Reynal, Sr., named his son Antoine Reynal, Jr., as the recipient of a large portion of his estate. The 200,000 piastres in money and land left to him must have represented a sizable estate in these early days of Missouri.

A document dated March 18, 1823, written by hand in English, indicates that James and Jesse Morrison had settled with Antoine Reynal, Jr. for the account of his deceased father.

The first printed form document of these Reynal papers, dated April 2, 1824, shows that William Christy, Jr., the Clerk of St. Charles County, St. Charles Territory, appointed Benfiamin Emmius, George Collier and Auluff Secks as Appraisers of the estate of Antoine Reynal-Pere-deceased and named Antoine Reynalds (sic), his son as Adiminstrator.

Another legal document of 1830 described a mortgage for land mentioned in Reynal's will, indicated that Marie Toupart Reynal had died by that date:

St. Louis, July 21, 1830

Antoine Reynal, son & sole heir of the late Dr. Antoine Reynal, deceased and Marie Toupart his wife, also deceased, and the undersigned Charles S. Hempstead have this day settled and adjusted the account between us for the balance due by said Hempstead on his part of the purchase of 1800 arpens of land at Creve Couer Lake, of Dr. Antoine Reynal & wife by deed dated March 3rd, 1818 recorded in office of St. Louis County rook G. pages 82 and the following, and find the balance due by said Hempstead of his third of said purchase to be One hundred and thirty five Dollars 25/100, to be paid by said Hempstead purchasing for said Reynal. 80 arpens of land at Maria Croche, St. Charles County - 2 by 40 arpens formerly owned by Edward Hempstead, deceased and acquired by him off the grant of 240 arpens to F. Duquette at Maria Croche - and of by paying Reynal Thirty five Dollars 25/100 all of which being done, said C. S. Hempstead and _______________ are to be released from said mortgage for his third part of said 1800 arpens.

Given under our hands and seals day and year first above written.

1831 - June 28th By cash paid copies $8.00

Antoine Reynal and wife Louise Saucier Reynal sold a piece of property to James Green, Jr. and Stephen Yarnall in September, 1831. The price was $200.00 to be paid in the form of a debenture. The property is described as a tract of land being Lot No. thirty one (31) in the Town of St. Charles, extending two hundred and forty feet in front on Main Street and reaching three hundred feet deep, to Second Street. On the said property there was a Horse mill, and a dwelling house that was lately occupied by John Kincaid, all of which the said Reynal inherited from his father, Antoine Reynal, Sr. Antoine and Louise Reynal signed the document, with Louise signing with an "X", indicating that she could not write her name. This may have been part of the property that caused the controversy in the 1960's regarding the St. Charles Fur Trading building, as part of that property faced Main Street, however the Missouri Historical Society research showed that Antoine Reynal, Jr. sold the land to John Mullanphy in 1822, shortly after his father's death.

Missouri was to become a state of the U.S. in 1821, and the first official census was taken in 1830. The 1830 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri, Copy No. 19, Roll 72, Page 276, lists the Antoine Reynal family living in that county:

Head of House Name Free White Males Free White Females

Antoine Reynalds (sic)

Under 5 years 1

5 to 10 years 1

10 to 15 years 1

15 to 20 years 2

30 to 40 years 1

40 to 50 years 1

Born in 1791, Antoine Reynal, Jr. would have been 39 or 40 years of age in 1830. His wife Louise, born sometime between 1792 and 1800, would be the female between 30 and 40 years of age. The children: Francois, born in 1812; Jean Baptiste (John B.), born in 1814; Louise, born in 1817; Mathieu, born in 1819; Edme, born in 1825; and Eugene, born in 1827, are the children listed on the census with their parents. The census also lists a male between 40 and 50 years of age and may have been a relative or hired man living with the family as was the custom in these early days.

The Land Tax of 1836-St. Charles County lists Antwine Reynold (sic) owning 68 acres of land, with Pier Rudardu as the previous owner. The Land Tax of 1836 also shows Francis Reynolds (sic) owning 14 acres of land and most likely would be their son, Francois Reynal, who would have been 24 years of age in 1836.

The Antoine Reynal, Jr. family was still living in St. Charles County in 1840, being listed in the 1840 U.S. Census in St. Charles Township:

Head of Household Name Males Females

Reynolds, Antoine (sic)

10 to 15 years of age 1

15 to 20 years of age 1 1

40 to 50 years of age 1

50 to 60 years of age 1

Antoine would have been around 50 years old in 1840, with wife Louise between 40 and 50 years of age. Their son George, born in 1833, would have been 7 years of age, with son Edme (18250630) being the male between 15 and 20 years old. Their daughter, Louise, born in 1817, would have been 23 years old in 1840, and was married in 1838. The female 15 to 20 years old in the census may have been a servant girl or relative with the family. Eugene, born in 1827, would be the male between 15 and 20 years of age.

This period of history in the Upper Missouri Territory was the era of the great fur trading expeditions, with St. Charles and St. Louis being the center of the fur trading business. Antoine Reynal, Jr. most likely was involved with his father in the fur business in the early years, and in the 1820's to the 1840's, the fur trappers scoured the western mountains for skins to trade and sell. In August of 1842, Antoine Reynal, Jr., was in Fort George in the Upper Missouri Territory. There he signed an agreement with John Ebbits, C. Kelsey, and F. Cutting, to serve as a Clerk of Trader, agreeing to go to the Upper Missouri, and its territory and serve for a period of one year. These Articles of Agreement, paying Reynal $700.00 for his year of service, and in turn he was to protect and assist the party by every means if attacked by Indians. It was signed at Fort George in the Upper Missouri Territory on August 22, 1842.

The copy of this Agreement is from the original at the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis, Missouri.

In December of 1842 or 1843 (the date is unclear), Andrew Drips, well known trader and U.S. Indian Agent at that time, wrote the following letter to Antoine Reynal, Esq.:

Antoine Raynal Esq., Cheyenne Trading House

Cheyenne River, December 15, 1842(43)

Sir: I hereby authorize you to destroy all spiritius liquor you can lay your hands on in this section of the country belonging to Whites or Indians. Should it be necessary to call on Indians to assist you to - - do it.

Respectfully Yours

(signed) Andrew Drips

U.S.I.A. (U.S. Indian Agent)

The above letter is a part of the Andrew Drips Papers, housed at the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis. Andrew Drips was well known in the Upper Missouri Territory in the 1830's and 1840's . Accounts about Drips were prominent in Bernard DeVoto's well known novel Across The Wide Missouri, written in 1947 and later made into a popular movie in Hollywood. The Cheyenne Trading Post, where Reynal was staying when Drip's wrote to him, is not now shown on maps; however, the Cheyenne River is a tributary of the Missouri River, joining the Missouri in the central section of present-day South Dakota. Ft. Pierre was located at that junction in the 1830's , and later the state capitol of South Dakota, also named Pierre, located in the same area as the Fort. The Cheyenne Indians inhabited the section of the Upper Missouri principally during this time. DeVoto's novel mentions Andrew Drips several times and states on page 71 that "Drips went to St. Louis with Fontenelle in summer 1831 for goods to bring back up river. Wintered that year in Salmon River Valley of Idaho." DeVoto states that in 1833 Drips was located at Fort Pierre in business with Fontenelle as Upper Missouri River Traders and Packers. On page 374, DeVoto states "The Company (Rocky Mountain Fur Company) had its Andrew Drips made Indian Agent for the Upper Missouri, with jurisdiction throughout the West. He was directed by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to stamp out the liquor traffic some more, and the Company supplied him with deputies and interpreters from its payroll. Stamping our the liquor traffic meant confiscating opposition liquor, and Drips worked hard at it." Apparently Antoine Reynal, Jr. was one of the deputies that Drips appointed to help in the liquor problem. DeVoto writes on page 373 that "Andrew Drips in 1840 at last took to the Flatheads the right kind of missionary. He was the famous Jesuit Pierre-Jean de Smet; - de Smet's success with the Indians won them over. This ended the rendezvous system."

So Antoine Reynal, Jr. had become a part of fur trading and trapping business, along with being a deputy for U.S.I.A. Andrew Drips in the early 1840's. The great fur trappers of the West from the 1820's until the 1840's met yearly to trade with the Indians and themselves in "rendezvous"' throughout the Rocky Mountains. Reynal was a part of this romantic era of the settling of the West.

By 1850, Antoine Reynal, Jr. was back in St. Charles, Missouri with his family, as the 1850 U.S. Census so indicates. Reynal, listed as 60 years of age in the census, shows him living with his wife Louise in more settled country.

From the Missouri Republican of St. Louis, dated June 10, 1859, the "Death Notices" carried the following:

Antoine Reynal, Sr., of Portage des Sioux, St. Charles County, 6 June, Aged 72 years.

Reynal's actual age in 1859 was 68 years of age, being born in 1791. Antoine Reynal, Jr., the son of the famous pioneer Missouri doctor, was to live and die near the place of his birth during the formative years of the State of Missouri.

LOUISE SAUCIER REYNAL, the wife of Antoine Reynal, Jr., was the daughter of Mathieu Saucier and Catherine Gaudin. The Saucier family, of French heritage, was also well known in the St. Louis and St. Charles areas from the time of its earliest settlements. Louise's known family included a brother, Mathieu Saucier, Jr., who was living next to the Mathieu Saucier's in St. Charles County according to the 1830 U.S. Census. Mathieu was married to Louise Lapensee on January 12, 1812. Miss Bapensee was the daughter of Joseph L. Lapensee and Marianne LePage. Their children included Andre Saucier, who was married to Marie Marechal on August 21, 1854. Marie was the daughter of Baptiste Marechal and Anastasie Fournier. Another brother of Louise Reynal's was Jean Baptiste Saucier, a sponsor at the baptism of Antoine and Louise Reynal's son, Eugene Reynal on October 13, 1827. The Index of St. Charles County, Missouri Marriages 1792-1863 lists Jean Baptiste Saucier's marriage to Victorie Bienvenu, daughter of Etienne Bienvenu and Madeline Victore Roy.

Catherine Lucille Saucier was a sister of Louise Saucier Reynal, being the godmother at the baptism of Mathieu Etienne Reynal on April 12, 1819. The above mentioned Index of St. Charles County, Missouri Marriages 1792-1863 lists Catherine Lucille Saucier's marriage to Antoine Etienne Reilhe, Jr. on January 1, 1816. Reilhe was the son of Antoine Reihl and Stetta Camp.

Francois Saucier, the uncle of Louise Saucier Reynal, was named the chief justice of the St. Charles Territory Court of Common Appeals in 1805, at the same time that Antoine Reynal, Sr. and Daniel Boone were appointed to their Territorial Offices. Louise's father, Mathieu Saucier, was a large landowner in the St. Charles and Portage des Sioux areas and was the brother of Francois Saucier. He and Antoine Reynal, Sr. are mentioned prominently in the Land Claims in the Missouri 1809-1815, including their land claims from 1808 to 1814.

In Missouri Pioneers, Vol. 17-18, quotes The Missourian, St. Charles, Territory of Missouri, as follows:

August 8, 1821

Died on Monday, the 6th instance, at his residence in the village of Portage des Sioux, Francois Saucier, Sr. Esq., Aged about 81 years. He was one of the first settlers in the Province of Upper Louisiana, now the State of Missouri, and was the founder of the village in which he breathed his last.

The date and place of the death of Louise Saucier Reynal is not known at this writing. The 1860 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri lists a Mary Louisa Reynal, female, age 68, born in Illinois, living with the Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal family at Portage des Sioux. This would date her birth around 1792, but may not have been Louise Saucier Reynal, Jean Baptiste's mother. The date of birth seems correct and her husband, Antoine Reynal, Jr., were living near the Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal family, according to the 1850 U.S. Census. There was a Mary Louisa LaBelle who was a sponsor at a Reynal infant baptism later and she may have been the 68 year old female living with the Jean Baptiste Reynal family in 1860.

FRANCOIS REYNAL (18121214)

The first son and child of Antoine Reynal, Jr. and Louise Saucier Reynal. Francois apparently spent his entire lifetime in the Portage des Sioux, Missouri area. He was born on December 14, 1812 in the village of Portage des Sioux, which at the time was subject to Indian raids. He was baptized from the St. Francis Catholic Church in the same village. His godparents were Baptiste Alary of Prairie du Pont and Lucille Saucier. In the 1830 U.S. Census he was living with his parents, Antoine and Louise Reynal at Portage des Sioux.

O.W. Collet's translation - Index to St. Charles County, Missouri Marriages 1792-1863, lists Francois Reynal's marriage to Josephine Chanceller on March 2, 1835. The Land Tax of 1836 of St. Charles County, Missouri, lists Francois Reynal the owner of 14 acres of land. The same marriage index shown above also lists the marriage of Francois Reynal to Louise Gornon on June 26, 1845. Louise is shown as being the daughter of Louis Gornon and Me. Louise Larrivee. A daughter, Marie L. Reynal, was born to Francois and Josephine Chanceller Reynal at Portage des Sioux in 1836. Three children were born to Francois Reynal and Louise Gornon; Genevieve in 1846; George Anthony in 1848; and Mary Louisa in 1851.

In 1850, Francois Reynal was living in St. Charles County, according to the 1850 U.S. Census. His wife was listed as Eliza, which may have been the first or middle name of Louise Gornon Reynal. Francois's age was shown as 38 years (he was born in 1812) and Louise (or Eliza's) as 26 years of age. A daughter Jane (Genevieve?), age 4 and a son, George A., age 2, are listed in the census. No mention is made of the daughter, Marie L., born in 1836 to Francois Reynal and Josephine Chanceller. Both the daughter and Josephine may have died prior to his marriage to Louise Gornon in 1845.

After the 1850 U.S. Census, I find no record of Francois Reynal and family living in Portage des Sioux. The place and date of death of Francois Reynal, Josephine Chanceller, and Louise Gornon is not known.

THE CHILDREN OF FRANCOIS REYNAL (18121214) AND JOSEPHINE CHANCELLER

The 1850 U.S. Census lists Jane (Genevieve?), age 4, the daughter of Francois Reynal. The place and date of death of Genevieve Reynal is not known.

(18481114) GEORGE ANTHONY REYNAL, b. November 14, 1848 in Portage des Sioux, Missouri, and baptized September, 1846 at St. Francis Catholic Church in Portage des Sioux. The place and date of death of George Anthony Reynal is not known.

(18510929) MARY LOUISA REYNAL, b. September 29, 1851, in St. Charles County, Missouri. The place and date of death unknown.

JEAN BAPTISTE (JOHN B.) REYNAL (18141201)

Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal, the second son and child of Antoine Reynal, Jr. and Louise Saucier, was born at Portage des Sioux, Missouri on December 1, 1814. He was baptized at St. Francis Catholic Church in the same village on March 12, 1815. His baptismal sponsor was Therese Saucier. His early life and education is not known, however, he did live most of his entire life in Portage des Sioux, it is believed. He was first married to Virginia A. Sherman on March 1, 1843, according to the Marriage Records of St. Charles County, Missouri 1804-1844. The 1850 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri, lists a John B. Reynal family living in that county. It states that John B. Reynal was 34 years of age and wife Virginia was 26 years of age. Living with this family was William G. Reynal (18331100), age 16, who was the brother of John B. Reynal, born in 1833. Other members of the family listed were; Antoine (William Anthony), age 3 and Henriette, age 3 months. Also listed was Antoine, age 37 years and it is not clear who he was.

Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal was married for a second time on June 21, 1852, to his third cousin, Catherine Saucier. They were married at St. Francis Catholic Church in Portage des Sioux by the Rev. Vereyde, S.R. The records of the church indicate that the impediment of marrying a cousin had been removed. It is not known what happened to Jean Baptiste's first wife, Virginia Sherman. Virginia and their child, Henriette, do not appear in the 1850 U.S. Census, and with his second marriage to Catherine Saucier in the Catholic Church, it may be assumed that Virginia Sherman and possibly the child Henriette, had died prior to Jean Baptiste's second marriage.

The 1860 U.S. Census shows that the Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal family was still living in Portage des Sioux Township. Jean Baptiste was listed as 44 years of age, indicating he was born in Missouri, was a farmer and had a personal wealth of $1,000. His wife was listed as Catherine, 37 years of age and also born in Missouri. The other family members shown were; William Antoine, age 14, Jean Baptiste's son by his first marriage to Virginia Sherman; a son John, age 6; Thomas J., age 3 and Virginia (Mary Virginia), age 1. The younger children of the Jean Baptiste (John B.) and Catherine Saucier Reynal family had not yet been born by the year 1860. These included: Augustine Beauregard, born in 1861; Louis Bertrand, born in 1864. Also living with Jean Baptiste Reynal family, according to the 1860 U.S. Census were: Mary Louisa, age 68, born in Illinois; Louis LePage, age 56, born in Illinois and Angeline LaFaivre, age 16, born in Iowa.

The 68 year old Mary Louisa (Reynal) shown in the census, may or may not have been Louise Saucier Reynal, the mother of Jean Baptiste Reynal and wife of Antoine Reynal, Jr. This would put her birth date in 1792. The 1850 U.S. Census lists Louise Reynal, wife of Antoine Reynal, Jr., as being 50 years of age. If this age was correct, she would have been only 12 years of age at the birth of her first son, Francois Reynal in 1812. This Mary Louisa living with the Jean Baptiste Reynal family in 1860, may have also been Mary Louisa LaBelle, who was a sponsor at a later Reynal infant baptism. The Louis LePage living with the family was also a sponsor at another later baptism. Nothing appears later regarding the young girl, Angeline LeFaivre, who may have been a servant girl living with the family.

At this writing, the place and date of death of Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal and Catherine Saucier Reynal is not known, nor is a record found of the date and place of death of the mother of Jean Baptiste, Louise Saucier Reynal. His father and her husband, Antoine Reynal, Jr., had died in 1859 and Louise was most probably was living with her son or other family members, unless she also had died prior to 1860.

The Patrons of Atlas 1875 of St. Charles County, Missouri, lists John B. Reynal of Portage des Sioux, born in St. Charles County in 1814, still living in that year and his occupation being a farmer. He would have been 61 years of age in 1875. His son, W.A. (William Antoine) Reynal, was also listed in the Atlas of that year, which stated he was born in St. Charles County in 1846, living in 1875 in Portage des Sioux and was also a farmer. The place and date of death of both Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal and his son, William Antoine Reynal, is not known, but most likely are buried in Portage des Sioux.

WILLIAM ANTOINE REYNAL (18460312)

William Antoine Reynal was born in Portage des Sioux, Missouri on March 12, 1846, the son of Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal and Virginia A. Sherman. He was baptized on April 8, 1846. He was married to Coralie Agnes Saucier, probably in Portage, date unknown. William Antoine and family probably lived all of their lives in the Portage des Sioux area, as the Patrons of Atlas 1875-St. Charles County, Missouri listed William Antoine Reynal living in St. Charles County in 1875, born in 1846 in that county, and was a farmer. Date and place of death not known.

CHARLES MATTHEW REYNAL (18530725)

Charles Matthew Reynal was born July 25, 1853 in Portage des Sioux, Missouri, the first child of Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal (18141201) and Catherine Saucier Reynal. He was baptized at St. Francis Catholic Church in Portage on July 30, 1853 by Fr. Verregdt, S. J. The sponsors were Francois Reynal (18121214), his uncle, and Elizabeth Saucier (Reynal). Charles Matthew is not listed in the 1860 U.S. Census with the Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal (18141201) family. He may have died as an infant prior to 1860 with his date and place of death unknown.

JOHN E. REYNAL (18541100)

John E. Reynal was born around 1854 in Portage des Sioux, Missouri, the son of Jean Baptiste Reynal and Catherine Saucier Reynal. He lived his early life in Portage des Sioux with his family and never married it is believed. He most likely came to Forney, Texas with his brother Thomas J. Reynal (18570406) in the early 1880's . The 1900 U.S. Census of Kaufman County, Texas, lists him living in Forney, Texas with the Thomas J. Reynal (18570406) family, being 49 years of age. The 1860 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri, listed John E. Reynal being 6 years of age, born in 1854. His parents were married in 1852, so the 1854 birth date is most likely correct. The 1900 census shows him the brother of Thomas J. Reynal (18570406), single, and born in Missouri. It also indicates he was a day laborer and that his father was born in Germany, which is incorrect. His mother was listed on this census as being born in Missouri.

The 1900 U.S. Census of Kaufman County, Texas also listed a John E. Reynolds living with the Chas. Ruwold (Rouvaldt) family in the Talty area southeast of Forney. This John E. Reynolds was shown to be 45 years of age on the census, born in Missouri in November, 1854, with both parents born in Missouri. The 1854 birth date coincides with the John E. Reynal birth date, and John E. Reynal may have moved from the Thomas J. Reynal family household to the Chas. Ruwold farm after the census was taken in Forney at the Thomas J. Reynal (18570406) home. John E. Reynal apparently remained a single man throughout his lifetime. The 1910 U.S. Census of Kaufman County, Texas, lists him living with his niece, Virginia Reynal Layden, and her husband, Dennis Lawrence Layden, in the Talty community. The records of St. Martin Catholic Church at Talty, Texas, show John E. Reynal died on March 14, 1922 and was buried on March 15, 1922 in the Oakland Cemetery in Terrell, Texas, with the Rev. Thomas J. Coyne officiating at the burial.

THOMAS J. REYNAL (18570406)

Thomas J. Reynal was born on April 6, 1857 in Portage des Sioux, Missouri, the third son of Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal (18141201) and Catherine Saucier Reynal. His birth and baptismal records are not shown recorded at St. Francis Catholic Church in Portage des Sioux as is most of his brother's and sister's; however, his date of birth is recorded in family records. He was raised to maturity in the Portage des Sioux area of St. Charles County, Missouri; however, his early life and education is not known. In 1874, at the age of seventeen, he was a sponsor at the baptism of Mary Virginia Reynal, daughter of William Antoine Reynal (18460312) and Coralie Agnes Saucier. William Antoine Reynal was his half-brother, both having the same father, Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal (18141201). The 1880 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri, lists Thomas J. Reynal living with the Joseph Saucier family, and shows him to be 23 years of age. The 1880 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri also shows the Joseph Saucier's neighbors to be the Tillman Autz family. Tillman Autz's step-daughter, Louise Werner, was also listed living as a neighbor of the Saucier's and Thomas J. Reynal, and we can assume that this is the reason he picked up stakes and moved to Forney, Texas in the early 1880's . Thomas J. Reynal's trade was a wagonmaker in St. Charles County in 1880. The Tillman Autz family left Portage des Sioux shortly after the 1880 date and moved to Forney, Texas, where Autz set up shop as a shoe and boot maker.

Thomas J. Reynal and most likely his brother, John E. Reynal (18541100), arrived in Forney, Texas shortly after the Autz family settled there. Tom Reynal was to become a woodworker and blacksmith in Forney, the trade he would follow for the remainder of his life. The friendship of Tom Reynal and Louise Werner, neighbors in St. Charles County, Missouri, must have been more than a passing one, and no doubt this was the reason that Reynal shortly followed the Autz family to the small village of Forney on the East Fork of the Trinity River in the North Central section of Texas. The romance apparently blossomed after the move to Forney, and on November 25, 1885, Thomas J. Reynal and Louise Werner were married at St. John Catholic Church in Terrell, Texas, with the Rev. Jerimiah I. Lehene performing the wedding ceremony. The witnesses to this marriage were Louise's step-father, Tillman Autz and Mary Ranold (sic). The Mary Ranold (sic) may have been Mary Virginia Reynal (18590206), Thomas J. Reynal's sister, born in 1859, and could have been visiting her brother in Forney. She most likely also knew Louise Werner in St. Charles County before the Autz's move to Texas. The marriage license for the couple, according to the Kaufman County marriage records, was issued to Thomas J. Reynal and Louisa Werner on November 21, 1885.

It is not known where the couple first lived in Forney; however, on November 27, 1890, they purchased a one acre lot on North Bois d' Arc Street from J. C. Wren and wife for $325. The lot was in the Smith and Newton Survey in the City of Forney. In 1893, T.J. Reynal purchased Lot 1, Block 36, a part of the John Gregg Survey in the City of Forney for $150. This may have been where he had his blacksmith shop, as the lot was closer to the fledgling business section of the town. He later sold the lot on November 12, 1900, to E.C. Lewis, the founder of the well known private school, The Lewis Academy of Forney.

During the years 1885 to 1900, Thomas J. Reynal worked in his business as a woodworker and blacksmith by himself and with other partners. The partners included a Mr. Cobb and a Mr. Douglass. Several newspaper advertisements in the local Forney papers carried the following over the years:

Forney Tribune, Vol. 1, No. 2, June 18, 1889

Whether Reynal's business was prosperous during his period of fifteen or more years in Forney is not known, however, he was able to support a large family, sending two of his young daughters to the private Lewis Academy on Cedar Street in Forney in the late 1890's, indicating he did make a good living. Reynal also ran for town constable in Forney in the 1890's, receiving a sizable number of votes, but not enough to be elected. During this period of fifteen years in Forney after their marriage, six of Tom and Louise Reynal's seven children (that lived) were born. These were: Virginia Catherine, May Agnes, Thomas, Annie Lee, Augusta, Edward Werner, and Remigius (Remy). Louis Russell, the youngest, was born in Terrell, Texas in 1901.

On October 30, 1900, Tom and Louise Reynal sold their home and lot on North Bois d' Arc Street in Forney to E.M. McKinney and wife for the sum of $850. On December 10, 1900, the family moved from Forney to Terrell, where they purchased a house and lot on West Grove Street from Wroten Lumber and Grain Company for $752.20. They lived in Terrell for just over a year, where their son, Louis Russell Reynal, was born on September 27, 1901.

On January 24, 1902, they sold the house and land in Terrell to John Talty for $1,075. On February 20, 1902, the Reynal family purchased a one acre tract of land from Gertrude Ruvaldt and others in the small community of Talty for $101. Their move to the Talty area was probably for two reasons: (1) So that Tom Reynal could open a blacksmith shop out in a small farming community and (2) for the children to attend the soon to be opened St. Martin Academy one mile northwest of their land. The Reynal's either built a home, or there was one on the property already, and Tom Reynal opened a blacksmith shop. The property was next door to the old Talty store, with a large cotton gin across the Forney Road. At the turn of the century, this area surrounding Talty was a large cotton and hay producing acreage. St. Martin Catholic Church had been built in 1891 one mile northwest of the Talty Store and the area contained many Irish extraction families that had settled there during and beyond the 1870's.

This was to remain the home of Tom Reynal and his place of business until his death. During this period, he and Louise's children attended the St. Martin Academy each day, walking the one mile to school and back. Their daughter, Augusta, later recalled that both sides of the Forney-Talty road were hay meadows and the children walked in these meadows to school each day. In May of 1912, the two oldest daughters already being married, the Reynal's sold their home place to the Dennis Lawrence Layden family for $500.

Thomas J. Reynal, a descendant of very early Missouri pioneers, was to die on December 27, 1912, at the age of 55 at his home at Talty, Texas. He was buried from St. Martin Catholic Church on the "Irish Ridge" in the St. Martin section of Oakland Cemetery in Terrell, Texas.

Louise Werner Reynal, the widow of Thomas J. Reynal, was to remain in the Talty area with her family. It is not known if the family remained in their Talty home after the sale to Dennis Layden in early 1912; however, it is believed that they did.

THE LINEAGE OF LOUISE WERNER REYNAL, WIFE OF THOMAS J. REYNAL

Louise Werner was born in St. Charles County, Missouri on October 30, 1865, the daughter of John Werner and Mary Virginia Thibault. The early events of her life are not known, however, she was living with her mother Virginia and step-father, Tillman Autz in St. Charles County according to the 1880 U.S. Census. Around 1881, the Tillman Autz family, which included a son Henry (Remy), who was born in 1878, and the two step-daughters, Louise and Anna Werner, moved to Forney, Kaufman County, Texas. Louise Werner's future husband, Thomas J. Reynal, had been living as a neighbor with the Joseph Saucier family, next to the Autz family in St. Charles County, Missouri.

The following information regarding the lineage of Louise Werner, was obtained by this writer from Mrs. Lois Stanley, a professional genealogist living in St. Louis, Missouri. This writer does not have documented information regarding the below listed lineage, however, Mrs. Stanley is a well known genealogist and author and it is likely the information is correct.

Louise Werner's father was John Werner, who was born in 1830 in the Baden section of Germany. Nothing is known of his early life or when he immigrated to the United States. He was married to Mary Virginia Thibault on December 26, 1856 in St. Charles County, Missouri. To this union two known children were born. Louise Werner was born in 1865 and Anna Werner in 1871.

Mary Virginia Thibault, Louise Werner's mother, was born on July 11, 1836, in St. Charles County, Missouri, the daughter of Joseph Thibault, Jr. and Celeste Pallardie (also Pallardy). Joseph Thibault, Jr. was born in the St. Louis, Missouri area on October 24, 1796, the son of Joseph Thibault, Sr. and Therese Brede (also Barada). Joseph Thibault, Sr. was born in 1753, the illegitimate child of Joseph Thibault, the first, and an Indian girl named Marie. Joseph Thibault, Sr. was married to Therese Breda on August 18, 1795 in St. Louis. He died on July 23, 1808 and is buried at St. Ferdinand de Florissant Catholic Church, Florissant, Missouri. His wife, Therese Breda, was born in 1778 in St. Louis, the daughter of Antoine Barada and Marguerite des Rosiers.

Celeste Pallardie, also Pallardy, the mother of Mary Virginia Thibault, was born September 30, 1800, in the St. Louis-St. Charles, Missouri area, the daughter of Pierre Pallardie and Marie Josephe Celeste LaBussiere. Marie LaBussiere was born in St. Louis in 1778, the daughter of Joseph LaBuxiere (also LaBussiere) and Ann Catherine Vifvarenne.

Mary Virginia Thibault, Louise Werner's mother, was married for the first time to Robert Leet on January 12, 1853 in St. Charles, Missouri. Louis Thibault was a witness to this wedding. She was married for a second time to John Werner on December 26, 1856. John Werner being the father of Louise and Anna Werner. Mary Virginia Thibault Leet Werner may have also married a man named Johnson prior to her last marriage to Tillman Autz.

It is unlikely that Mary Virginia divorced her first three husbands, as she was later married to Autz in the Catholic Church. The St. Charles Recorder's Office Index Book-1873, Page 65, lists the marriage of Tillman Autz and Virginia Johnson on July 25, 1875. The marriage was performed by Aloysius Overbeck, Catholic priest at Portage des Sioux, Missouri. This Virginia Johnson would be the same Mary Virginia Thibault Leet Werner Johnson, as the 1880 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri, lists the step-daughters, Louise and Anna Werner, living with the Tillman Autz family. The Recorder's Office, according to Mrs. Lois Stanley, genealogist, also indicated that Tillman Autz had been previously married to a Mary Foote.

The 1870 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, Missouri also listed the Pallardies living in the Portage des Sioux area and listed Tillman Autz and wife Mary Foote, living nearby. The 1880 U.S. Census of Portage Township, Vol. 29, Sheet 15, Line 12, lists Tillman Autz, a white male being 52 years of age, a shoemaker by trade, being born in France, with his father born in Austria and mother born in France. His wife in 1880 is listed as Virginia, age 42, with both her parents being born in Missouri. The children of the household were Henry, a son, age two, and two step-daughter's; Luise Warner (sic), age 14, born in Missouri, whose father was born in Bavaria and mother born in Missouri and Annie Warner (sic), age 9, born in Illinois.

The Tillman Autz family moved to Forney, Kaufman County, Texas shortly after 1880. Autz was on the tax rolls of Kaufman county by 1883, owning a piece of land in the John Gregg Survey. Louise Werner, as previously mentioned, had most likely known her future husband, Thomas J. Reynal, prior to their move to Texas. The Tillman Autz's son, Henry, shown as being two years of age on the 1880 U.S. Census of St. Charles County, was later known as Remy while living in Forney. Remy attended the North Forney Public School and is shown in an 1888 photograph of the school students. He also attended the private school, The Lewis Academy in Forney, and was later married to Effie Cary and located in Dallas. He later became the foreman of the Buell Planing Mill in Dallas and was an expert cabinetmaker. He and his wife were the parents of two sons: Richard and Percy Autz.

Tillman Autz, Louise Werner's step-father, was born in either 1818 or 1819 in Holland or France. He was known as "Captain" Autz while living in Forney, having served in the African Wars prior to his coming to the United States in 1858. He located in Missouri and was married to Mary Foote prior to his marriage to Mary Virginia Thibault Johnson in 1875. Autz was around sixty years of age when his son, Henry (Remy) was born in 1878. The early Forney historian, Mrs. George Riter, stated in her unpublished manuscript, The History of Forney and Surrounding Communities, 1934-35, that the Autz's had moved to Forney in 1881 and that Autz was an expert shoemaker who "made many of the shoes worn by the early citizens of Forney'.' Autz, according to Mrs. Riter, spoke English, German, Dutch and French fluently. Tillman Autz was in the shoe and boot making business for many years in Forney, with the local newspapers carrying his advertisements over the years.

The Tillman Autz family may have lived with the Thomas J. Reynal family in Forney at one time, but this is not verified. Mary Virginia Thibault Autz, mother of Louise Werner, a Missouri native of extensive French-American heritage, was to pass away in Forney in August, 1899, at the age of 63 years. She was buried from St. Martin Catholic Church at Talty on August 28, 1899 and was buried in Oakland Cemetery, Terrell, Texas.

According to the 1900 U.S. Census, Tillman Autz was living with his step-daughter, Louise Werner Reynal and her family in Forney. He continued to make his home and have his business in Forney for many years, where he died on October 15, 1917, at the age of 98 years. He was one of Forney's oldest citizens when he died. His place of burial is not known.

The sponsor at this baptism was Mary LaCroix. She is listed in the 1860 U.S. Census as the daughter of Jean Baptiste (John B.) Reynal, age 1, and born in Missouri. She may have visited Texas in 1885, where her brother were living. A Mary Ranold (sic) is listed as a witness to the wedding of Thomas J.

VIRGINIA CATHERINE REYNAL (18861212)

Virginia Catherine Reynal was born in Forney, Texas on December 12, 1886, the first child and daughter of Thomas J. Reynal and Louise Werner Reynal. She was baptized at the St John Catholic Church at Terrell, Texas, date unknown. In her early years, she attended North Forney Public School (a private school) and later The Lewis Academy on Cedar Street in Forney. After the family moved to Terrell in 1900, she attended Terrell High School, under Prof. S.M.N. Marrs. She was a student of the piano, studying under Mrs. George Voiers of Forney. After the family's move to Talty in 1902, she most likely attended the St. Martin Academy, which was started that year, although she would have been sixteen years of age. She was married to Dennis Lawrence Layden on January 10, 1910 at St. Martin Catholic Church at Talty. Layden was the son of one of the pioneer settlers of "1ayden's" or the "Irish" Ridge, as the area was known. The Layden's built a home near the St. Martin Church around 1918, on the farm that was to be the home of Virginia Catherine Reynal Layden for the rest of her life. Affectionately known as "Virgie" to everyone, the Layden's were to have two children: Ellen Louise, born in 1919 and infant that died in 1929. The Layden's were prominent farmers and devout members of St. Martin Catholic Church their entire lives. Virginia Catherine Layden was to die in Terrell, Texas on November 4, 1965 at the age of 78 years. She was buried from St. Martin Church in the Oakland Cemetery in Terrell, Texas, next to her parents, Thomas J. and Louise Werner Reynal. After his wife's death, Dennis L. Layden sold his farm to his nephew, A.J. "Jay" Layden of Houston, Texas. He left the Talty area shortly, making his home with his daughter, Ellen, in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

MAY AGNES (MAMIE) REYNAL (18881030)

May Agnes Reynal, known as "Mamie" throughout her life, was born on August 10, 1888 at Forney, Texas, the daughter of Thomas J. Reynal and Louise Werner Reynal. She was baptized on October 30, 1888 at St. John Catholic Church, Terrell, Texas, with her aunt, Annie Werner, as sponsor. Mamie attended school in Forney at the private Lewis Academy and also at the private North Forney Public School. She also attended school in Terrell after the family moved there in 1900. Fourteen years of age when the Reynal family moved to Talty in 1902, she then attended St. Martin Academy with the other Reynal children. She was married to Claude T. Lee at St. Martin Catholic Church at Talty on May 12, 1912 at the age of 24. She later divorced Claude T. Lee and worked in Dallas for many years, taking care of her daughter Gloria Eliose Lee. During this period Gloria Eliose lived for periods of time with her aunt and uncle, Dennis and Virgie Layden. May Agnes, or Mamie to everyone, was disabled by arthritis around 1940, and spent the last thirty years of her life in a wheelchair. Her disability did not keep her from having a smile on her face, the bright spot in her life that everyone associated her with. She lived in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, on Beckley Street, with her daughter Gloria and husband, Jack Barr. Barr was a contractor in Dallas and also ran for mayor of Dallas around 1950, unsuccessful in his bid for the office. Mamie later lived in Mesquite with her daughter, after her marriage to a Mr. Pounds. She was living at her daughter's home southeast of Mesquite when she died in a Dallas hospital on October 30, 1969, at the age of 81 years. She is buried in the Laurel Oaks Cemetery in Mesquite, Texas.

Thomas Reynal was the first son born to Thomas J. and Louise Reynal. He was born in Forney, Texas in 1891 and died as an infant and buried from St. John Catholic Church in Terrell, Texas on September 7, 1891, the Rev. R.F. Neale officiating. He is believed buried in Oakland Cemetery, Terrell. The official records of St. John the Apostle Church, Terrell, states: "Thomas, infant son of Thomas and Louisa Reynolds (sic) was this day buried in the cemetery attached to the Terrell church, Rev. R.F. Neale."

Annie Lee Reynal was born in Forney, Texas on July 10, 1892 and died as an infant in July, 1893 at the age of one year. She was buried from St. John the Apostle Church, Terrell, Texas. The church records on page 3 states: "July, 1893, Infant daughter of Thomas and Louise Reynald (sic) of Forney was buried in the cemetery attached, Rev. R.F. Neale." The church record entries regarding the two infant burials are interesting, as there never appears to have been a cemetery next to the church.

AUGUSTINE REYNAL (18931007)

Augustine (Augusta) Reynal was born in Forney, Texas on October 7, 1893, the daughter of Thomas J. and Louise Werner Reynal. She was baptized at St. Martin Catholic Church at Talty, Texas the same month by Rev. R.F. Neale. The sponsors at the baptism were B. Ruwoldt and Mrs. Annie Adams. Known as "Augusta" or "Gussie" to her family and friends, she may have attended school in Forney, prior to the family's move to Terrell in 1900. She attended school in Terrell and later recalled to this writer her remembrances of the town. It was a bustling cotton town around the turn of the century and the circus coming to town was an event she remembered most. The circus was the "Buffalo Bill Wild West Shows" and she remembered Buffalo Bill Cody, with his long silver hair, riding his white horse. The family moved to Talty in 1902, where his father (Tom) became a blacksmith. She attended St. Martin Academy, along with her sisters and brothers, taught by the School Sisters of Notre Dame.

After finishing school at St. Martin Academy, she lived at home with her mother, after her father's death in 1912. She was married to William Owen Costello, the son of Michael and Catherine Higgins Costello. The Mike Costello family had settled in the Lone Elm community, three miles from Forney, in 1878. The wedding of William Owen Costello and Augusta Reynal took place at St. Martin Catholic Church at Talty on November 18, 1919. They began their married life in the Costello home, where Will was born. The house was built around 1880, after the Costello's purchased the farm two years earlier. The pioneer Costello house was torn down in 1984, after one hundred and four years. All of the eight children of Will and Augusta Costello were born on the Lone Elm farm, which consisted of 160 acres of the original 200 acres purchased by Mike Costello at $2.00 per acre in 1878.

The family continued to farm during the 1920's and 1930's, with Will sometimes working in stores in Forney in the wintertime. He was to die on October 22, 1943, in the house where he was born. After his death, Augusta Costello and her two youngest sons, Dennis and Pat, continued to run the farm with the help of John Williams, a black tenant. In 1944, Augusta's oldest son, William Owen Costello, Jr. returned home from North Africa, where he was stationed in the Army, serving in World War II. In 1948 Augusta and her two youngest son, Dennis and Pat, moved from the Costello farm, which had been purchased by William Owen Costello, Jr., to Cedar Street in Forney. She continued to make her home there for the next 24 years. Augusta Reynal Costello died at St. Paul's Hospital in Dallas, Texas on August 10, 1972, at the age of 78 years. She was buried from St. Martin Catholic Church at Talty, where she had been a devout member for 70 years. She was buried in the Oakland Cemetery, Terrell, Texas, next to her husband.
