Biographical or historical data
Richard Furman Reynolds was born about 1817 in Charleston, South Carolina. He served as a colonel during the Civil War. After the war, he settled in Richmond, Virginia, where he died in 1870. His wife, Anna Hubbard Gardner Reynolds (1836-1910) was the daughter of James H. Gardner (1796-1877), a prominent merchant and president of the City Bank in Richmond. Thomas Caute Reynolds (1821-1887) was elected lieutenant governor of Missouri in 1860. When Missouri did not secede and join the Confederate States of America, he joined Governor Claiborne Jackson (1806-1862) as a government-in-exile. Upon Jackson's death, Reynolds became Missouri's governor-in-exile.
