I am still looking for any connections to my ggg grandfather:
Allen REYNOLDS b Oct 21, 1787 (Saratoga Cty. NY) d. Jan 18, 1864
m. Susanna ALLEN b. Sept 9, 1787 (Massachusetts) d. Apr 12 1862. They lived and died in the Town of Galen, NY (now in Wayne Cty.)

(Side note: Susanna's parents were Amaziah ALLEN and Judith Helley; siblings Eleanor, Daniel, Ruth, Stephen, Judith, and Charlota)

I believe Allen and Susanna were married in the Galen area, since according to Quaker meeting house records Susanna's parents were also in the area.

Allen Reynolds most likely had other relatives in the area too. We know he had a nephew, Elnathan Reynolds, living with him according to census records.

Allen and Susanna's children were:
William A. - b. July 15, 1821, d. 2-apr-1875 (m. Phebe Thorn)
Mary J. - b. May 21, 1823
Amaziah Allen - b. March 19, 1825, d. Mar 20, 1916 (m. Edna Vail)
Eleanor - b. March 19, 1827
Joseph H. - b. May 29, 1829, d. 8-Apr-1879 (m. Phebe Allen)
Henry K. - b. Feb 23, 1832 (m. Austa L. [?])

My gg grandfather Amaziah Allen REYNOLDS, married Edna Vail on Dec 22, 1847.
Their children were:
Sarah - b. Jan 3, 1849
Ella - b. Jan 7, 1851 (m. Lewis Wells)
Alfred A. - b. Aug 11, 1855 (m. Helen Johnson)
Lillian - b. Jan 4, 1862
Walter Vail - b. May 29, 1865 (m. Grace DeVoe)
Wallace (Walter's twin) - b. May 29, 1865, d. 1866

Amaziah A. and his brother William A. both moved from Galen to Wolcott, (Wayne Cty) NY. where they purchased land in 1848. William moved from Wolcott and was last known to live in Junius, NY.

I do have some lineage of William A. though I am not truly sure how accurate or complete it is.

If you have any information or possible leads please contact me directly. I will be happy to share any other info and more details that I have.

Thanks in advance
