    Jonestown Cemetery is located between Decatur and Alvord. From Hwy 287 turn left on CR 1280. You’ll see the cemetery and church in a little over a mile on the left.

    We completed our survey of the cemetery in October 2000 and recorded 271 headstones.

    There was a historical marker at the gate. Text follows:

 

 

Mount Zion Baptist Church
And Jonestown Cemetery

      In 1883 early settler Andrew Jackson Jones deeded four acres of land to be used for a church and cemetery. The earliest marked grave in the cemetery dates from that year. After the first church building burned in 1893, the members of Mt. Zion Baptist Church met in the nearby Jones School until 1909 when they erected a one-room church building. In 1950 the lumber from the 1909 structure was used to construct the present building. The membership has supported mission work since 1902, and annual brush arbor meetings are traditional.
