Parkinson discovered the location of Reynolds' grave while doing research for her book, History of Reynoldsburg, published in 1981. According to that book, Reynolds initially boarded with John French when he came to town and became its first merchant. After building his cabin on Main Street and opening the store, he sold work clothes, whiskey, molasses, calico cloth and general provisions. She said it is possible the town was initially named "Reynolds Burgh" because the mail was delivered to Reynolds' store. Reynolds died in 1854 at the age of 48, from complications of malaria. Cotner said he was happy to help with the gravestone. "I believe in the history of our community," he said. "I admire Reynolds, because I think he was someone that went out of his comfort zone to help his community. I thought it was important for people to know more about him," he said.
