The book mentioned below has resided since it was written in the desk I've inherited through the Reynolds Family. The family lore is that it was carried back and forth between Connecticut and Pennsylvania during the early days, including the Wyoming Massacre. I've come to understand that it is the upper part of a two part secretary, that had this early history.

Benj seems to have married twice after lydia died in 1828.

His 2nd wife was Reuy Hoyt b. 2/14/1786 and on 1830 Plymouth, Luzerne Pa. b. 1780-1790 w Benj. Did she or Benj 3rd wife Olivia M. have Julia b. circa 1844 and Julia was on Benj 1850 census????
