WELCOME EVERYONE!!!! This page is dedicated to my mother who has been on the hunt for our ancestors since I was a young girl. She has spent endless hours in town halls, cemeteries, librarys, writing letters, emailing distant cousins and her perserverance is an inspiration to anyone!!! And, I guess it's rubbed off on me too, as here I am trying to find more information, more information...the endless search which I adore as much as I adore her!

Mom was born a COUCH and she has a plethora of information on her COUCH line, which goes back to Simon I coming here in the 1600s from England. Mom's mother was born a REYNOLDS. This is the line which has stumped us for years...our "stonewall"! We have been able to go back to WILLIAM F REYNOLDS, born December 06, 1829, of Bedford, Westchester, NY. He died at 29 on August 18, 1959 and is buried in the Oakwood Cemetery in Mt Kisco NY. William F had a brother, ISAAC W, also with the same birthdate of December 06, 1829. We found Isaac in a NY Census and William's son URIAH HARRIS REYNOLDS was living with him, listed as a farmhand. Also living with Isaac was Uriah's mother, widow of William F, LOUISA HARRIS REYNOLDS. In Bedford records the farm is mentioned as the "Old Isaac Reynolds Farm on the West Hill" on the west side of Byram Lake in Bedford. Isaac had children, none of which we have been able to trace. Some family surnames attached to our Reynolds' are SANDS HARRIS FLEWELLYN/FLEWELLING GOULD. WILLIAM F REYNOLDS- b 12-6-1829 poss in NY; d 08-18-1859 bur at Mt Kisco NY; marr LOUISA HARRIS, b 02-11-1832 in CT ?; d 07-23-1898 at Mt Kisco NY. dau of ABIJAH & MARY HARRIS.
