Cemetery History

This cemetery is named after Gardner Jones (1818-1886), who once owned and farmed this land. It began as a family burial ground, but later became a cemetery for the area. The first recorded burial was that of Samuel Perkins who died February 4th, 1845, and the last recorded burial was that of Ralph C. Wheelock (1884-1959).

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
