We have no primary evidence for the existence of a ''Rebecca Husted.'' Remington points out that she was apparently invented to explain why Jonathan Reynolds called Angell Husted his "father-in-law" in his will. We now know the term was used as we use '''step-father''' today. (Jonathan's mother married 2) to Angell Husted)
We only know the wife of Jonathan Reynolds, Sr. by her first name, Rebecca. Because of the spelling issues for the name Husted - and the fact that we do not know her maiden name, this profile is frequently duplicated - and sometimes disputed.
Thank you in advance!
edit: got the names a bit mixed up - straight now
