I believe that John King was first married to Harriet ????, second to Philena Reynolds (when and where?), and thirdly to widow Sophia Higgins. I have seen several posts that claim that Philena died 7 June, 1847, but that is the date that John and Sophia married in Oakland County, Michigan.
John and Philena had 6 children born in Michigan: Naomi, Caroline Elizabeth, Joseph, Orin, Merlissa, and Nancy.
When and where was the marriage and death of Philena (Reynolds) King? Michigan vital records began in 1867.
