The Reynolds Family Association

One couple featured at the Reynolds Family Association website is John Reynolds and Sarah Backus. Lucky for me, they are my ancestors.  From the site:

"By trade John Reynolds of Norwich was a wheelwright, and he lived in Norwich, probably working at his trade, some forty-two years. It was this John Reynolds of Norwich who with Simon Huntington, Thomas Adgate, John Post and William Backus in October 1663, was made a Freeman at Hartford, the seat of the colonial government."

Sarah was the daughter of William Backus, the original immigrant.
