William b. 1802 Reynolds (Ronald, Rannald, Ronals,Ronnol)

I am seeking any possible leads to a Reynolds ancestor.
Records I have of my William Reynolds, b -1802 poss. NJ.
Birth date from info on grave head stone and receipt for
same. The receipt was to an in-law for the stone approx.
two years after Williams death, thus poss. date error.
A genealogist suggested a possible connection to William
Ronald, circa 1684, Kintyre, to New Aberdeen, New Jersey,
New England. This Wm. Ronald was very active in Scottish
settlement of New Aberdeen, and records indicate many
different spellings of his last name. This William signed
his will May 14,1709. Listed sons, William and James,
daughters,Euphame, Janet, Helen and Sophia.

Poss. parents of Wm. 1802,David and Nancy Jackson
Reynolds of NJ. Have only family stories to support the
actual existence of these two. Name David may be a middle name.

William left NJ abt. 1834/1835 and settled in Bartholomew
Co. IN. This journey may have been in the company of a
Miles and Lydia Cottrell Reynolds also of NJ and involved
stops in Ohio and Illinois. Miles was the son of James and
Margaret Peggy (Miller) Reynolds of NJ. Have a good deal
of info on Miles and James but can establish no relation-
ship to William 1802. Miles is found in residence near Wm.
and attending the auction of Wm's. assets upon his death
in 1853 in IN.
William m. Mary Anderson b.abt 1821, "near Trenton" NJ.
Mary was of the John B. Anderson and Mary Burke family.
Mary R. moved with her parents to IN abt. 1834 at age 13.
William R. and Mary A. were married Sept. 10, 1837. IN.
Children of this union were, Richard 1838, Samuel 1839/40,
Lewis Gordon 1841, William Ardra 1843, Aletha abt.1847,
David 1853 and John abt.1854. All children born in IN.
William died in IN 1853, Mary remarried to Freedom Luker
moved to Waterville, MN. abt 1860 with family.
My brick wall begins with the William poss. b. 1802 in NJ.
I can find nothing back beyond that. NJ as birth place for
Wm. obtained from death certs. of 2 of Wms. sons and some
census detail out of IN.
I have contributed DNA to the Reynolds DNA project within
the last year. These results can be viewed at the web site of
that project and referring to Monmouth Co/Kit 74905 should
anyone care to compare test results.
I would be grateful for any possible lead.
Thank you all.
