Archives: Reynolds (John Howard Bodine) Family Bible


These records come to me by way of Mary (Reynolds) Zednick. She made color copies from the originals and sent them to me. Mary's great-grandmother was Carrie Louise Bodine, daughter of John Howard Bodine. Carrie Louise Bodine married Clarence Eugene Reynolds, the son of Claudius Reynolds and Susan A. Kirby. Click on the link below to Births, Marriages, or Deaths to see an image of the original page from the Reynolds Bible. Each image is about 140 KB and may be slow to load in your browser. Hit the "Back" button on your browser to return to this page. The handwriting from the 1800's appears to be the same person. The handwriting from the 1900's appears to be two or three different people. I have put some of the handwriting from the 1900's in bold to show that this appears to be the same person.
