CONTRIBUTORS TO JONES CEMETERY FENCE - 1968

In 1968 Nell Naylor Stuart (Mrs. Charles Stuart) began solicitation for a chain link fence to protect the Jones Family Cemetery. She was concerned, without a fence, the cemetery might be plowed under. In addition, damage by livestock, moving in and through the cemetery, was also of great concern. Some stones were already down and it was presumed this damage was caused by grazing livestock.

Jones Family descendants contributing to the fence were:

Robert Archbell                              Charles M. McGee                                Virgie Naylor Smith *

Hunter Barcroft                              Ila McGee Mary                                    Naylor Smith

It is very probable that there were more contributors than appear on this list. We all know how it always works, there are others that end up doing a lot of the work and picking up the tab for additional or unexpected costs.

Contributors were instructed to send contributions to Fred Jones at the Funeral Home in Brownsville. It was stated that he was very interested in getting the project started.
