In Stanstead County, James Owen & Emily had seven more children, making this one of the larger branches of Benjamin's children. Following Emily's death in 1903, James Owen married Phoebe Melissa Wait, a younger sister of Emily's. They both passed away a few years following their 1904 marriage

According to Enid Reed Elliott in her book, "The Genealogy of the James Owen Bullock Family", James Owen moved his family to Stanstead County in the spring of 1860. This journey took place in winter with the family in sleds having to cross the frozen waters of Lake Memphramagog to reach their new home. Eventually, all his brothers and sisters joined him there.

15. George Lewis Bullock Reynolds & Lovissa Ann McGregor

George Lewis, Benjamin's youngest child, provides us with a sad family story. He was born in Clarenceville, QC, in 1844 and within five years, both his parents had died, leaving him an orphan. He was adopted by a family by the name of Reynolds about which we know nothing. There is strong evidence that this was a Benjamin Reynolds from the nearby town of Alburg, VT. You can view the 1860 Vermont Census here showing George Lewis as part of this family.

George Lewis also moved to Graniteville near Stanstead with the rest of the second family. We don't know when this happened. He married Gracie May Lovisa Ann McGregor. We don't know where or when the marriage took place. In 1888, at the age of 44, George Lewis Bullock was baptized a second time, changing his name to George Lewis Reynolds, taking the name of his adoptive parents. Most of his children were born and lived in the Stanstead area. A number moved to Massachusetts. Many of the Reynolds descendants whom we have met were not aware of this Bullock connection. Learn more about, George Lewis.
