JONES ~ ROGERS FARM GATE
Photo by Mary Kay Dancy Smith
This farm gate commemorates the farm
that was part of an original land grant given to a Coppedge
ancestor. It is not known how many acres were in the original grant but Edward Rogers owns
about 80 acres now. The Moore Family owns part of it as well. It has been in the family
continuously, with the exception of about ten years, prior to 1890. It was sold when the family fell
on hard times but they were able to buy it back.
Thanks to Tyrrell Jones Bond for this family information.
