Notes for Harriet C. REYNOLDS

Biographical Sketch (1982):659, p. 234. "David married in 1815 to Harriet C. Reynolds. Her father, William, had been a member of the third advance party which came to lay out Granville prior to its settlement. He held Lot 8 of the original division of land, but died before 1810. His widow Theodocia married Enos Hurlbut and with the Reynolds boys, William and Loring, they moved to Wayne County, Indiana, before 1820, leaving very few records of this pioneer family in Licking County. The Moreys migrated north to Milford Township, Knox County, where William L. Morey (son of David and grandfather of Pansy) married Elizabeth Ann Myers of near Lock."

Dear Brother and Sister,

I now take my pen in hand to write a few lines to let you know that we have not quite forgotten you. I have not written to you concerning mothers death. She departed this life the 9th day of last June. I went and stayed 10 days with her before she died she had her senses till the last. A few minutes before she died David ask her if she thought she was dying she could not spek for sometime before she dyed. She took hold of Davids hand and held it for sometime. She died very easy. I now send you a lock of her hair cap and her shroud. I think it is well with her, our neighbors are still leaving the shores of time on the right and left. There has been sixty of our neighbors buried in that place where your father lives.

I have not heard from Mercy in some time the last time we heard from them Lyman had seen Thomas in Delaware. He was in jail for fighting his cousin Perfect. He told him that his father had gone to the west. Thomas is a very bad boy.

The California fever rages in Mt. Vernon there is several going from here. I hope that you have not got the fever there where you live, it is a very bad complaint when it gets started.

I have no more but remain your sincere friend, Letutia Hopkins.

Harriet C. Morey
