Reynolds Cemetery, Phillips Creek, Town of Ward, Allegany County, NY
The following cemetery information was submitted by Ted Seeley:
Directions: Reynolds Cemetery is located approx. 150 yards south of state route 244, east of Phillips Creek village. There are 6 visible grave sites there. The cemetery is on state land, perhaps 1/3 mile from Phillip's Creek. The easiest route through the woods is approx. 75-100 yards east of an old house foundation, which is visible from the road. (at
this point 244 curves slightly north). Walk directly south until you reach a gully/creek. Directly across the creek, the cemetery should be visible. This hike would be best traveled in early spring or late fall, as there is a lot of shrubs and saplings. If one doesn't see the cemetery, I would recommend walking along the edge of the gully until it is seen. I would be happy to accompany anyone that wishes to visit the cemetery.
