I am searching for John King md Philena Reynolds abt. 1830, children are Milton, Eunice, Rhoda, Orion, Melissa, Naomi, and Caroline. Have found a John King in the 1850 census living in Attica, Lapeer, Michigan and also the 1860 census living in Mettamora, Lapeer, Michigan with the above named children but a wife named Sophia, possibly a second wife. Would appreciate any information that would expand my knowledge of this family.

John King(1808 - 1872?) was my gg grandfather. He was born c. 1808 in New York City, married Harriet ________, had daughter, Rhoda (my great grandmother, who married John Graham; then he married Philena Reynolds, daughter of Peter Reynolds and (Rhoda Mariah Green?), had children Naomi(1844 - 18 oct., 1876, married 5 July., 1862 at Goodland, Lapeer, to Thomas Hinds/Hines, and Caroline Elizabeth (1845 - 1924), my other great grandmother, who married Martin Jay Tanner, 10 Feb., 1866 at Hadley, Lapeer, and son Joseph King (b. c. 1850 (no other info)). Then on 7 Jun, 1847, at Birmingham, Oakland, Mich. John Married (Mrs. Sophia S. Higgins, who died 7 Apr., 1881. Both John and Sophia are buried at Goodland, Lapeer, Michigan.
John's parents MAY HAVE BEEN Henry King and Ann Grosvenor.
I am trying to prove the wife of Peter Reynolds.When I went to Lamont Cemetery at Lamont, Ottawa, Michigan, a different woman was buried next to Peter, and I could find no record of his first wife, nor her burial.
Any suggestions?

I believe that John King was married first to Harriet ????m and had two daughters: Eunice (b. 1734) and Rhoda (1836 - 1907) Rhoda was my dad's grand-mother. His other grand'mother was Caroline Elizabeth King, daughter of Philena and John. Caroline went by both Caroline or Elizabeth.

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.
