      The family of John2 and Judah (Palmer) Reynolds apparently dates about en years later than that of his brother Jonathan. All of the children of both brothers were born in Sound Beach (then Stamford) and Greenwich, Conn. The mention of the ages of the children of Jonathan2 in the settlement of his estate in 1673 enables us to set the years of their birth. But the following children of John and Judah, and possibly others who may have died in infancy, are arranged in order of birth, but the dates of birth are not wholly reliable:
      i. John 'The Cooper' Reynolds 9 was born in 1670 in Sound Beach Or Greenwich, CT6 and died in Dec 1732 in Sound Beach Or Greenwich, CT at age 62.
      ii. Judith Reynolds was born about 1672 and died after 1734.
      iii. James Reynolds 6 was born in 1674 in Greenwich, CT, died on 14 Feb 1767 in Amenia, Dutchess Co, NY at age 93, and was buried in Smithfield Burying Ground, Dutchess Co, NY.
      v. Jonathan Reynolds 9 was born in 1682 in Greenwich, CT and died in 1709 in Greenwich, CT at age 27.
      vi. Joshua Reynolds 9 was born about 1685 in Greenwich, CT and died in 1765 about age 80
      vii. David Reynolds 9 was born about 1687 in Greenwich, CT and died in 1750 in Greenwich, CT about age 63. David married Penelope Wright about 1705 in Prob Oyster Bay, L.I., NY. Penelope was born about 1690. David next married Mary Mead, daughter of Joseph Mead and Sarah Reynolds, after 1709. Mary was born about 1690.

      John Reynolds, Jr. (3)
      1. Biographical notes: Born about 1638/9 at (probably) Wethersfield, Connecticut. Died between 8 November and 17 December 1701 at Fairfield/Greenwich, Connecticut.
      2. Wife: Judith ?Judah? Palmer Born about 1648. Died 1702. Daughter of William/Henry and Judith (Feake) Palmer. Married John Reynolds about 1668 at Greenwich, Connecticut. After the death of her father, William Palmer, Judith and her siblings moved with her mother to Greenwich, Connecticut, where she had relatives. Judith (Feake) Palmer eventually married (2nd), as his 3rd wife, Jeffrey Ferris (d. 1666). She married (3rd) John Bowers about 1667. After Judith (Feake)(Palmer)(Ferris) Bowers died, John Bowers married Hannah (?) Knapp, widow of Joshua Knapp, whose daughter, Ruth Knapp, married Deacon John Reynolds (son of Jonathan Reynolds) and whose son, Joshua Knapp, Jr., married Elizabeth Reynolds on 16 March 1687. So, John Bowers had three step children who married into the Reynolds family.
