      JONES CEMETERY      

 

 

    The Jones cemetery is located south of Jacksonville Texas on the north side of CR 1605 which connects US 69 with FM 347.  Turn to the right from US 69 onto CR 1605 and go exactly one mile.  The Jones farm is across a cattle guard to the right located at a sharp curve in the road.  The cemetery is on that farm and is on private property.  Once through the cattle guard the cemetery is on the left, just past an old home place with a chimney built of stones.  It is a small cemetery and both it and the surrounding pasture are well maintained.  The earliest marked grave is for John Jones who died in 1857. 

This survey was done in May 1997 by Harold Acker and Gaylon White.
