Thanks so much for your reply. Portions of the information you gave I had confirmed, but you did open new doors for me - such as the parents of Leonard and Clarinda's maiden name. I did find the family in 1870 and 1880 - but still searching for 1860. My wife is daughter of Marian Reynolds, daughter of William Reynolds (1895-1960). His father George married Lena. In 1900 George and Lena have 4 children. By 1910 George is widowed with 7. Here's the strange thing - William's first wife Lena (?) appears in 1920 with no children. By 1930 William has remarried a gal by the name of Julia Etta Hankins - maiden name: Neff - daughter of Robert and Manda (Phelps) Neff. As you know, Robert is son of Leonard! Because of the 35 years that passed between Williams 1st and 2nd marriage - I'm not sure anyone knew of the connection, that Marian Reynolds had the same grandparents on both side of her tree! The family info lists Neff on both sides - but one with parents Robt and Manda and the other unknown.
