50th REYNOLDS FAMILY REUNION
10:00 AM on Sunday May 21st, 2017
Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church
in Tyrrell County NC
This is a reunion of the descendants of William Reynolds Jr. and his sister Matilda Jane Reynolds Spencer, both originally from Chelsea, England. William Reynolds Jr. lived in Tyrrell County and became a Primitive Baptist Preacher, while Matilda Jane Reynolds Spencer lived near Roper in Washington County and ran a local store.
Also, everyone is encouraged to bring any items of family interest that they have (such as old pictures, family bibles, diaries or handiwork) to the reunion for “show and tell”.
THIS YEAR’S PROGRAM:
This year’s program will celebrate our 50 years of Reynolds Family Reunions, with a “Living History of the Reynolds Family“. This will visually represent our Reynolds ancestors as they gradually emigrated from England to North Carolina, and how we got to our family branches today — from William Reynolds Jr. in 1828 to Matilda Jane Reynolds in 1849, through the Civil War until today.
