|Message:||When my grandfather died this year, I decided to look his name up on Ancestry.com. I found several people who had composed family trees for various branches of the family. The one composed by the relatives of William Hinds brought me here, when I realized I was a descendant of Andreas Kilian.
This is how I am related (I think): Andreas\' son Leonard had a son named Mathias Killian. Mathias had a son named Jacob. At some point they moved to Daviess County, Indiana. From my research, it looks like Jacob and his wife Julia Halderman had a daughter, Elizabeth, who married Joseph Yount in Daviess County. Joseph and Elizabeth gave birth to John Yount, who married Martha Baker. They gave birth to Olive Yount, who married John Hackler. They gave birth to Maude Hackler, who married Elijah Reynolds. Elijah and Maude had my grandfather, William Eldon Reynolds. My father\'s name is Olen (Tom) Reynolds. He and my mother had four children. My parents and two sisters live in Illinois, and I live in San Diego. My brother is going to school in North Carolina, so I will have to tell him to make a trip to visit this area of the state.
This is so interesting to uncover this stuff! Thank you for keeping up the site.
