Unknown if Grandpa Reynolds died or if he and Grandma divorced, but by 1870 she was remarried.

In the 1900 census for Junction City, Geary Co., KS, Thomas is 61 (Aug 3, 1838 b NY) working as a Stone Mason & Lizzeta is 58 (Apr 24, 1942 b IN) and Ira C. is 14 (Oct 24, 1885 b KS). They have been married for 32 years, Lizzeta says 11 children / 7 living.
