Palmer, 1872-78; Wesley C. Palmer, C. R. Bowen, 1878-81; Harvey Kellogg, Silas M. Johnson, 1881-84 ; Harvey Kellogg, Charles W. Cass, 1884-87; Charles R. Bowen, Henry V. Hawkins, 1887.
was born March 25, 1823, in Pennsylvania. His parents came to the Maumee Valley when he was quite a small boy. At about the age of 17 he went to live with Harvey Kellogg, on his farm, in Adams Township. Being left an orphan by the death of his father, he depended mainly upon his own exertions ; but he was a young man who made friends and secured the confidence of those with whom he had dealings. He was therefore trusted and prospered. Such is the reputation Mr. Kellogg and others gave him. He was married June 21,1845, with Miss Rhoda Ann, daughter of Daniel Cothrell, of Springfield Township. She was born in the State of New York, where her father was born March 24, 1802, he dying in October, 1884. Her mother, Sarah Grant, was born in Orange County, New York, in 1805, and died August 15, 1878. The year preceding his marriage he had purchased of Harvey Kellogg, 40 acres of land adjoining Dorr Street, which he made his home. He introduced the first power Threshing-Machine into the neighborhood, and for 15 years followed the threshing business vigorously and laboriously, Summer and Winter, with such unremitting persistence, that at last he fell a victim to the dust of the machine, which caused the disease of the lungs of which he died December 6, 1868, when hardly yet in the prime of life. He was twice elected Justice of the Peace for Adams Township, serving for two terms, and was Postmaster at the time of his death. He became a member of the Masonic Lodge at Sylvania at an early date, and was buried by that Order. A successful farmer, he had 185 acres of improved land at the time of his death. He was a strong advocate of total abstinence from the use of intoxicating liquors, when such position required a firm will ; was a good neighbor and an honest citizen. Mr. Reynolds left a widow and seven children, four sons and three daughters. D. Edward, born June 19, 1850, married Miss Calista Micham of Adams; Sarah A., born May 4, 1854, died April 4,1879 ; Charles, born March 24, 1859: Hattie E., born February 16, 1848, married Charles Micham October, 1879 ; James B., born April 28, 1866; Mattie S., born May 14, 1864; Perry A., born April 24, 1856, married Miss Emma Shellenberger, September , 1880. Two sons, Charles and James B. Reynolds, and one daughter, Mattie S., are living at home with their mother. D. Edward lives in Sylvania, and -also the married daughter, Mrs. Charles Micham ; while Perry A. lives on a farm in Adams Township. Mr. Reynolds was for several years Postmaster at Hickory, Adams Township, and also served as Trustee and Justice of the Peace.
