Hi, Rosemary --
Yes, I am reasonably certain we are talking about the same Renicks, but need to be cautious! If we are connected, then your Robert, son of George, was a brother of my ancestor, Wm (married Mary Dugan), who lived in Paxtang Twp. Lancaster Co. My Wm died in 1737. Another brother, Thomas, moved to Hardy Co, West VA and died in 1751. Robert was killed by Indians in VA. These three brothers, and a sister who m. Robert Poage, were born ca 1700. George was probably born ca 1670 and is believed to have immigrated from Ulster ca 1711 and first located north of Philadelphia, where he left records in the Abingdon Presbyterian Church in 1711. By 1718 they had located in Paxtang Twp. and were granted property just south of Harrisburg PA in 1732. We know Robert and Thomas moved away from Paxtang Twp. shortly after 1732. Do these years sound reasonable for your family? Was one of your Roberts killed by Indians, and the family kidnapped? Does Paxtang Twp. sound familiar?
What is ***most interesting*** about your information is the naming of Thomas as the father of George! I don't have him at all - my line stops with George. I must say that I know very, very little about the "Renicks of Greenbriar", because it deals primarily with the families who moved to VA, and all my research has been on the families who stayed in PA. And I must caution us both to not assume we are talking about the same families to begin with. I have a little more information on Robert who moved to VA.
I will be happy to share all my information. We should do that offline, I guess.
One more comment - maybe you have read this before - The "Renicks of Greenbriar" incorrectly, we believe, names Thomas as the father of my William, not his brother. But I need to double check this.
