REYNOLDS CEMETERY at VanNess Corners
TOWNSHIP, TIOGA COUNTY, PA.

|This cemetery is in abominable condition at this time (October 2001) Tombstones are toppled, briars and other brush have taken over. Many tombstones are buried and broken. Very poor condition. This is located at the crossroads north of Tears Corners (Sullivan Township) in the most southern part of Rutland Township.|
|May 2007- The Doxtaders have cleaned up the cemetery. Millie
Doxtader note : Mike and Walter Sherman set up the stones, the township
brought in some dirt and Mike has been filling in the “sunken” parts of
the cemetery with the use of Dean McKay tractor. It really looks like a
cemetery now and it is almost done. Maybe we may even have some family
members stop,which would be great.
THANKS to those who did this. Terrific!!! Mike and Walter Sherman are Reynolds - Smith descendants. Millie and Mike Doxtader are not related to anyone in the cemetery so they deserve special credit for taking responsiblity for this little burial ground next to their house. See updated photos at bottom of page.
