"...In the southwest section is a monument over 12 feet high on a three-foot base standing like a sentinel guarding his little encampment. On its northwest side, facing the road, is the following inscription; "Henry Reynolds. Born at Peekskill, N.Y. 1742. Died at Neversink, N.Y. 1827. Mary Fowler, his wife. Born 1743. Died 1825." On the northeast side of this same monument are inscribed the words: "For loyalty to Freedom he was attacked by a Tory bank in 1782 and left for dead in his own home." On the southeast side is inscribed: "Erected by the descendants of Henry Reynolds 1902."
