  While General John Fulton Reynolds is a well known figure to students of the Civil War, his older brother, William Reynolds (1815-1879) is not.

  William Reynolds became an admiral in the U.S. Navy years after the end of the Civil War. He had been retired for health reasons several years before the war, but returned to the Navy when the war began.

  While the 13 children of John Reynolds, Sr. (1787-1853)  and Lydia Moore (1794-1843) were related to the Fulton family through their maternal grandmother, Jane Fulton (1768-1847), they were related to the Ferree family through their paternal grandmother, Catharine Ferree Lefevre (1753-1822).
