It took awhile to get the correct facts, as to the date of death, place of death, and the correct cemetery. All of my facts were straight. Other places recorded those facts incorrectly.
His parents were Edward L. Reynolds and Olive Mary Merritt Reynolds.
His wife was Ferne Bessie Young Reynolds. I have photos of Edward and Olive, as well as a baby photo of Leverett and Fern's girl, Emily Rose Reynolds, dated July 4th, 1934. Emily was born April 1, 1934 and died December 17, 1996.
. I have dates on all of the people in that photo, for anyone who wants them.
LEVERETT WAS a brother to my grandmother, Flora Etta Reynolds Todd (8-20-1888--2-10-1960) and a brother-in-law to my grandfather, John Henry Todd (3-13-1884--9-2-1958).
I have a lot more details on everyone, for those who want more info.

Thanks MUCHES to Angie Todd who                  provided most of the Todd-Reynolds photos.
Leverett, second man from left, was my Great Uncle. Fern was my Great Aunt. Emma, to the right of Ferne and Leverett, was Leverett's sister, Emma ("Emmy"). Emmy's husband was George Weaver. To the right of George was William Bailey ("Won't ya come home, Bill Bailey?") and his wife, Emma and Leverett's sister, also my Great Aunt June. Do you know who the baby was? My Gramma Flora Etta Reynolds Todd married John Henry Todd. Flora was a sister of Leverett, Emma, June. Also Elsie and others were their siblings. Flora and siblings were children of Edward L. Todd and Olive Mary Merritt Reynolds. John Henry Todd and Leverett Merritt Reynolds, Ferne's husband, were brothers-in-law. ) Angie)
