Reynolds Cemetery
Jim Wells County, Texas

This listing was contributed by Bruce & Morna McHargue [bruceamc@bellsouth.net].  Total records = 32.

Located three miles southwest of Orange Grove, Jim Wells County, Texas (formerly part of Nueces County) on the Palo Ventana Ranch. Compiled by Sharry Kelly Reynolds.

Notes on Reynolds Cemetery:  According to the Reynolds Bible in the possession of Mrs. W. R. Jones of Alice, Texas, the first burial in this cemetery was of Charles, infant son of George and Hannah REYNOLDS. Charles was born Feb. 7, 1868 and died Feb. 13, 1868. The next burial was of Edward TAYLOR, George's uncle who came from England about the same time as George (1854). According to the Almond Diary, Joseph Almond, their friend and neighbor, built the coffin and read the services for "Uncle Ned" on May 2, 1873. These graves are unmarked, but a low wooden post at the northwest corner is said to be a burial marker for a family member.

This cemetery was legally recorded in a partition deed drawn up by the Reynolds family Aug. 23, 1899, assigning the acre plot for the perpetual use of all Reynolds descendants. It has been in use from the family's first arrival on this original homestead property about 1867-68.

     An amiable father here lies at rest
     As ever God with his image blest.
     The friend of man, the friend of truth,
     The friend of age, the guide of youth.
