The Reynolds brothers were partners in a grain commission business. By 1885, they were the largest firm of their kind in the country. Sheldon Reynolds was the first grain dealer to bring wheat east from west of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. He was president of First National Bank and chairman of the board until his death.  He also served as director of several railroads.  

 

His yacht, SIGMA, was the largest private boat at the Toledo Yacht Club.
