Cherokee County, Texas
The Reynolds cemetery is located west of Jacksonville, Texas on the Sid Dudley farm at Ironton. It is on private property and is really overgrown. Go west from Jacksonville on US 79 and turn right on CR 3210 then almost immediately turn right again on CR 3214 and cross a railroad track. Turn left just past the railroad on CR 3212. The Dudley home place is on the right about 100 yards down CR 3212, past the house about 200 yards and on the right side is a gate made of steel pipe and painted orange. Inside the gate there are several old logging road tracks but unless in a pickup, you should walk in. The cemetery is on the left hand track about 100 yards north. On the left of that track look for huge old cedar trees which were probably planted when the cemetery started. The oldest marked grave is 1868.
This survey was done in May 1997 by Ira Gaylon White.
