Elijah and Abbie Reynolds came to Napoleon in 1854. Their son, Charles E. Reynolds, married Sarah Parker in 1866. Sarah (Parker) Reynolds died on March 10, 1902 (Source: Affidavit for Transfer and Record of Real Estate Inherited, Vol. 115, p. 296, Henry County, Ohio).

Charles E. Reynolds died March 21, 1925 (Source: Affidavit for Transfer and Record of Real Estate Inherited, Vol. 115, p. 296, Henry County, Ohio).

In the Affidavit for Transfer and Record of Real Estate Inherited, Vol. 115, p. 296, Henry County, Ohio, October 5, 1926, the Sarah E. Reynolds property was described thus:

"Also the following described premises, situated in the Village of Napoleon, County of Henry and State of Ohio, and known as the Northeasterly part of Out Lot Number Ten (10) Phillips and Staffords Addition to said Village of Napoleon, Ohio, as shown on plat recorded in record of plats of Henry County, Ohio, in Vol. 2 Page 17, and more particularly described as follows to wit: Commencing as a point on the Easterly line of said Out Lot number Ten (10) Twenty four and one half feet (24 ft and 6 inches) from the North East corner of said Lot and running thence in a Northerly direction along the Easterly line of said lot to the North East border of said lot; thence westerly and along the Northerly line of said lot a distance of one hundred and five and 8/12 feet (105 ft. & 8 inches) thence easterly in a straight line to the place of beginning."
