      Stephen Booyer Reynolds, was born November 26th, 1811, in Wickford, where he has during his whole life resided. Here, after the customary period at school, he learned the carpenter's trade. His inclinations leading to the life of a mariner, his trade was at an early day abandoned for the more perilous and exciting career of a sailor. His first experiences were those of a common sailor, from which he rose to the command of a schooner, and finally to the principal ownership of a vessel engaged in trade with West India and the ports of the Gulf of Mexico, of which he was captain. Captain Reynolds finally tiring of this wandering life, which necessitated long absences from his home and family, enjoyed several years of leisure. He had been since 1856 in the board of directors of the Wickford Savings Bank, and was in 1866 elected its treasurer, holding the office until 1887, when he was succeeded by his son, Joseph G. Reynolds. He is also a director of the Wickford National Bank.
      Captain Stephen B Reynolds married August 7th, 1843, Harriet C, daughter of Beriah Gardiner. Their children are : Charles B., Stephen Eugene, Thomas A., Joseph G. and Benjamin G
