Does anyone have further information about her death? I've checked the Mass. VRs for a death in 1816 for any variation of Reynolds and don't find any death record. Is there a probate file? I don't find a headstone or profile on either. Suggestions?

Betty is 20 degrees from SJ Baty, 19 degrees from Orville Redenbacher and 16 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
