John Daniel Reynolds
5 April 1832   -    23 October 1875

"John Daniel Reynolds was born at the old Reynolds home on the Sulphur Springs road
in 1832. He graduated in medicine at Nashville in 1854. In which year he was married to
Theresa E. Sheppard, of Yancey, and settled in Asheville on the Reynolds lot, corner of
North Main and Woodfin Street, where his small office building still stands.

"He served throughout the war in the
29th N.C. in a surgical capacity. After only a few
years more of practice he died in 1874, too soon to see more than the dawn of his
county's prosperity."
