I recently purchased a group studio portrait of 11 men, each of whom signed the back of the mount and added the city and state where they resided at the time.The photo is dated 22 Feb 1882, but there is no indication as to where or why it was taken.The man in question entered his name and location as follows:
"J. C. Reynolds Belleville Ont. Canada"
I believe this individual is probably John Charles Reynolds, who appears in a Public Member Tree posted on ancestry.com. He is also listed in the 1861 and 1871 Census of Canada data for Cobourg, Northumberland, Canada West, Ontario, Canada; and the 1881 Census of Canada data for Belleville, Hastings West, Ontario, Canada.Born 28 Jul 1852 in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, died 19 Feb 1883 in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, he was the son of Francis Reynolds (1829-1901) and Eleanor Young (1832-1908).
