Wake County, North Carolina

Directions from Cary: Take Walnut St. to the intersection of Tryon Rd. and Holly Springs Rd. Walnut St. ends here and Holly Springs Rd. begins. Stay on Holly Springs Rd. until it intersects with Penney Rd., turn right, and keep a sharp look out! On your right, directly across from the first mail box on your left sits a little fenced cemetery, barely visible until autumn, as it is in a heavily wooded area. There is a tiny place to park, easily missed. A natural wood fence with a gate surrounds the monuments. It is well kept.
There have been members of the Jones families in Wake County since 1749 and their history is entwined with Wake County's. For those with an interest in the Jones families I recommend "Around and About Cary", by Thomas Byrd, illustrated by Jerry Miller, for a brief but impressive introduction to the Jones history, complete with sketches and family tree. This is only one of several Jones burial sites. Surveyed and transcribed by Shirley and Gordon Olson Oct 22, 2000. Jones, Barnabas, b. Sep 16, 1819, d. Nov 23, 1906, On side "Father", footstone BJ
