Jones Cemetery at New Store

While conducting research concerning the Jones Family of New Store, Slate River Ramblings follower L. D. Phaup shared the following about his visit to the Jones Family Cemetery located on Rt. 636, near the intersection with Rt. 609 in the village of New Store.  The Jones house sat nearby and was removed about forty or fifty years ago. The cemetery is across Rt. 636 from the former location of the house.  Mr. Phaup wrote:

I visited the family cemetery on Sunday 11-11-2018 and did not have difficulty in locating it. My greatest surprise is the discovery of William D. Jones and the inscription on his tombstone. According to his stone it shows Virginia— PVT. Moseleys Co —1 Va Cav. —-War of 1812.

During the visit, he documented the following markers:

Louis Dibrell Jones 1837-1911

Orra Louisa Jones 1916–1917

Infant Sons 1921

Clinton H. Jones 1869–1947 and Lucy McFarland Jones 1880

Louisa T. Jones 1840–1915, wife of Louis Dibrell Jones

William D. Jones, died June 30, 1874

L. D. Phaup added that there are additional burials in the cemetery, however, he is unclear about their relationship to the Jones family. There are also several graves marked only by field stones.

Some members of this family are buried at Trinity Presbyterian Church, including Rev. Plummer Flippen Jones.

More about these burials can be found at Find A Grave: Trinity Presbyterian Church, Plummer Flippen Jones.

    Dear Joanne, Thanks ever so much for this posting. Will go look. Have sent your posting on to Carter Refo, the Membership Secretary for The Society of the Lees of VA. He is systematically photographing all tombstones connected with that family. The Jones and Dibrell lines in Buckingham Co. fall into that category. My great-grandmother was Mary (Mollie) Elizabeth Putney Jones, buried somewhere in Buckingham Co. She passed away in Feb. 1878 in Charlottesville, VA. I have been looking for her grave for years with the help of Mr. Roy Shores, an expert on the graves in that county. Kind regards, Mary Roy Dawson Edwards

      Mary Roy,

      Many thanks for sharing L. D. Phaup’s work with the Lee Family.

      Roy Shores is a Buckingham County treasure. Some years ago, he guided me to my James Harris cemetery near Sharps Creek. That was an adventure!

      Joanne
