Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church

in Tyrrell County NC



This is a reunion of the descendants of William Reynolds Jr. and his sister Matilda Jane Reynolds Spencer, both originally from Chelsea, England.  William Reynolds Jr. lived in Tyrrell County and became a Primitive Baptist Preacher, while Matilda Jane Reynolds Spencer lived near Roper in Washington County and ran a local store.


Also, everyone is encouraged to bring any items of family interest that they have (such as old pictures, family bibles, diaries or handiwork) to the reunion for "show and tell".



Amanda Reynolds Frymier, past Reunion Secretary and our Family Genealogist, will lead the program of “William Reynolds Sr., Our Founding Father”.  Hear Amanda tell the story of our original Reynolds ancestor and life back in England, as originally written by Reunion Co-Founder and Past President, the late Ed Reynolds.
