Samuel Ball Reynolds

Buried near his fourth wife, Ellen.

Alice Jane Morgan

RESEARCHER: Dr. Tommy Rowell wrote T.Mason on 30 Dec 2003 that Trebie was his great great grandmother. "All of her five children were separated after her death while Samuel Ball Reynolds sought work. All of them were raised at least part of their lives by Trebe's sisters and Aunt Shirley was raised by Cousin May Lee. There is only one of Trebe and Samuel Reynolds' children still living and that is our aunt Louise. She is between 95 and 100 and lives in the Oakland, California area. I knew my great-grandfather Roy and Uncle Gaskell as well, but never met Aunt Shirley and Uncle Homer other than through letters."
