Several sources indicate that the father of this Larkin Reynolds was Larkin Reynolds (Sr) rather than his brother Benjamin. No one is sure which was his father and some sources indicate that both Larkin (Sr) and Benjamin had sons named Larkin. In Larkin Reynolds(Sr)'s estate settlement children Benjamin, Bevin, Nancy, Caswell, Mahaly, and John Vincent are named but not Larkin who would have been about 2 at the time of Larkin (Sr)'s death. Some researcher believe that Larkins brother Benjamin adopted or took in the young Larkin and raised him as his own. Larkin is named in Benjamin's will in 1816.
