Allen (Allie) F. Reynolds was born in 1858/1859 in Indiana (parents=IN possibly Samuel Reynolds and Nancy (–?–), Mary Reynolds Beverly may be his sister). In June 1880, Allie was working in a sawmill in Long Lake township. Allie was married on 6 August 1882 to Sarah Isabelle Henshaw. Our place had quite a sensation Aug. 6, occasioned by the marriage of one of our young ladies, Miss Belle Hinshaw being married to Allie Reynolds. We are sorry to lose Miss Belle from among us, but our loss will be Mr. Reynolds' gain. Belle was born on 20 September 1864 in Lynn, Randolph County, Indiana, daughter of Zimri Henshaw and Gulielma [Julia] Thomas.
Allie purchased 30 acres of land on 1 April 1882 from Zimri Henshaw for $250. By late 1882 he was working in the lumber woods. In April 1883 he was elected a Constable for Long Lake township.
Belle died shortly after giving birth on 30 May 1883 in Long Lake township. Mrs. Allie Reynolds (better known by her maiden name, Miss Belle Hinshaw) died last Wednesday morning. Mrs. Reynolds had become greatly endeared to the entire community. Her sweet life was full of hope and promise, but the Lord willed otherwise, and her friends, especially among the young people, will long mourn for a dear one gone. The funeral services bore affecting testimony to the tender regard in which she was held. She was eighteen years old, and they were indeed "beautiful years." She was buried at Long Lake cemetery, May 3d, Rev. Mr. Hodgens officiating.
Family from Indiana arrived for the funeral: Mrs. Russell, aunt of the late Belle Reynolds, living in Indiana, was telegraphed to and came and attended the funeral of Mrs. Reynolds (Grand Traverse Herald, 7 June 1883).
