NOTE: There is a discrepancy between the date of birth listed on Henry's Death Certificate and the date on his headstone. I have modified the record to match the headstone, but the digital copy of the death certificate at the WV Archives lists Henry's date of birth at 04 Dec 1844, whereas, the headstone is engraved with 07 Dec 1844.

"DEATH IS EVER BUSY"

Henry Clay Reynolds, one of Shepherstown's most estimable residents, passed away at his home in this place Wednesday afternoon at half-past three o'clock, in the 78th year of his age. He had been ill for the past two months from a general breakdown and had been bedfast for four weeks. Mr. Reynolds was a native of Berkeley county, but had lived a large part of his life in Jefferson county, having for a number of years farmed one of the Shepherd farms north of town. He was one of the most exemplary men in our community-- quiet, courteous, gentle of speech and manner, yet with firm convictions and the courage to express his opinions. He could always be counted upon to take the right side of public questions and to do his full duty. He had for many years been a consistent member of the Reformed Church, serving as a member of the consistory, and was known as a pious, Christian man. Honorable and upright, his influence was always for good, and though he will be missed from our community, his virtues will long be remembered; Besides his wife , he is survived by a brother John Reynolds of Berkeley county, and two sisters, Mrs. Louis Robinson, of Martinsburg, and Mrs. Thos. J. Clapham, of the Vanclevesville neighborhood. Mr. Reynolds was a Confederate veteran, having served with credit during the Civil War as a member of Company F, First Virginia Cavalry. The funeral service will be held at his late home Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock, interment in Elmwood Cemetery.
