Well, just learned something new...great article about the illegitimate son of BG Daniel H. Reynolds in the most recent Ark Historical Quarterly. Seems General Reynolds returned to Chicot County, minus a leg lost at Bentonville, NC and had a short romance with an English widow from Chicot County. For whatever reason, it didn't work out and she returned to England in 1866 not realizing she was pregnant and had her son in 1867 Richard Williams Reynolds. Not sure if the general ever knew or not. One note of interest, Richard became a teacher and one of his prize pupils was none other than J.R.R. Tolkien. Interesting read.
