The Families of Reynoldston

For some of us whose ancestry reaches back to Eddy Street, Reynoldston is remembered more for the character of its residents than for the prosperity of its mill. The community’s real wealth rested in the work ethic of the labourers, each striving to support a large and extended family. Each man and woman toiled the best one could, showing great fortitude and resilience in the face of a difficult existence, yet the interconnectedness of Reynoldston’s families created a sense of comfort, for it was a community of kin, and the help of family was always close at hand. While the six or seven families who became the roots of this community came from diverse places, Reynoldson’s isolation brought them together biologically, socially and economically. It was the numerous offspring of these founding families who filled the classrooms each year, though the graduating classes seldom contained these students, who by their teenage years were drawn into the workforce to help support the growing family. At the head of it all was the powerful Reynolds family many of whom also went to school in Reynoldston, although many had the opportunity to continue their education in high school in Malone..
This section is dedicated to the families. It provides more information about them, including some family genealogies. This will allow you to better understand the dynamics of these families and their interrelationships. Over time we hope some of the families themselves will contribute information to this section.
