Estella Reynolds (18761906)

Estella was born 19 Sep 1876 to Clarasa Ann Reavis and Amzira Anthony Reynolds. Estella was born in Tennessee, and since her parents were married the previous year in Lincoln County, it is likely that she was born there. By the time of her brother George's birth in 1891, the Reynolds family had relocated to Bedford County. In the 1900 census, the family was cited in Civil District 20 in Bedford County.

Estella apparently never married. She died at the young age of 25 on May 3, 1906 in Bedford County, Tennessee after contracting typhoid fever following nursing her younger brother Amzira Jr. back to health. She is buried in Russell Cemetery in Wheel, Bedford County, Tennessee.
