Reynolds, Henry (1800 - 1896) - Biography

Henry Reynolds, Barry's 2nd great grandfather, was born on Jan 1,1800 in Toberhead, County Derry, Ireland and died on May 31,1896 in Innisfil (Craigvale), Ontario, Canada. He is buried in St. James Cemetery in Stroud.

Henry married Mary Reynold in Ireland. Mary was born in December, 1805 in Lully Mullen, County Derry, Ireland and died on July 20, 1894 in Craigvale and is buried beside her husband.

They emigrated to the new world about 1831, landing in North Carolina and settling first in Markham, Ontario and then in Innisfil in Simcoe County. Henry was Presbyterian and Mary Wesleyan Methodist, although after 1891 she also listed herself as Presbyterian. Henry was a farmer and a logger.

He would walk up the Old Penatang Road to a town just north of Barrie, log all day, then walk home to Craigvale (Stroud) in the evening. In 1861 the family was living by themselves in a one storey log house in Innisfil Township. Henry could not read or write in 1871 but by 1891 he was able to read and write according to the census.

We are reasonably confident that Henry and Samuel Reynolds were brothers. They and their families were neighbours in Innisfil Township. Many of the given names of these two families are the same.
