Jones Cemetery
Submitted by Joe Poole

Directions: From downtown Rome take Broad Street south. At the Anchor Rome intersection, turn right on Cave

Spring Street. Go 2.1 miles. Take Daniel Drive on your right. Go 0.2 miles and the cemetery is on your right.

Notes: Partial inscriptions, and any legible information, if found, is included. Since many stones have deteriorated I hope that this

information  will help identify ancestors’ graves after deterioration has rendered the inscriptions illegible, as will surely happen with

time, weather, and age.

I proceeded in rows beginning at the grave closest to Daniel Drive. Since the cemetery is not a perfect square rows are not

even so keep in mind that the tombstones are noted in the closest approximation to rows.
