PREFACE

 

In this book I have endeavored to list all the descendants of Jacob S. and Mary Magdalene Rodney Jones, of which there are 1606 thus far and growing. Jacob and Mary lived in Lower Sussex County, Delaware before the signing of the Declaration of independence in 1776 and had nine children.

Much preliminary work was done by Pauline Jones Mills, historian of the Jones Family Assn., and in an effort to bring the records up-to-date over 100 letters were written by me requesting information. Families were asked for their personal release of the information they provided for the book. If any families were missed it was purely coincidental in as much as there is no intent to defraud, detract or add to the facts pertaining to the Jones Family records. It was a tremendous and overwhelming task. At times I wanted to stop but I felt a printed family record was needed so I continued. I asked relatives for information pertaining to their ancestors, themselves and their children regarding 'births, marriages, education, deaths, burials and addresses of children and other relatives. Many family Bibles were utilized.

There were many long visits to investigate the public records at the Delaware State Archives, Hall of Records in Dover, Delaware and at the Maryland Historical Society Library in Baltimore, Md. I have spent considerable time at the U. S. Military ocean Terminal Federal Archives Center checking the Federal Census records and to Rutgers-the State University Library in New Brunswick, New Jersey to research the many volumes of the Maryland Historical Magazine and the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. In an effort to present this information in its present form I enrolled in two Genealogy courses given at Brookdale Community College.

Every effort was made to print the complete correct data but since it was impossible to recheck all dates sent to me that was in conflict with the record we had on hand a choice had to be made.

I am grateful to my son, Douglas, for joining Boy Scouts and having attained the rank of Eagle. In so doing he had fulfilled the requirements of the Genealogy merit badge which had started me on this long venture. I would like to express my gratitude to all the families which have provided me with information. I am grateful to my wife, Mary and my son and daughter, Douglas and Kendee, for the assistance they gave me throughout the compiling, researching, indexing and typing of this book.

I am particularly appreciative of my uncle, Rev. Charles E. Jones for his guidance, suggestions and his willingness to help during the research. He gave freely many hours of proofreading of this manuscript.

This is purely a book of my love for the descendants of Jacob and Mary Jones and a desire to have a record for them to hand down to their children. Authorization for the printing of this record was given at the Jones family reunion on October 7, 1978. It is hoped that the book will be a useful and helpful aide for you.,

Thank you.

JACOB S. JONES

 

Jacob S. Jones and his wife, Mary Magdalene Rodney, settled in Lower Sussex County, Delaware prior to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. This bit of history has been handed down from generation to generation.

At the first Jones family reunion on Oct. 8, 1949 Rev. Ralph C. Jones gave a historical background of the Jones family. He stated that in all probability the Jones family came over to this country from Wales and other areas of the British Isles. The Welch people came over in the year 1607. The settlers of that period came up the Chesapeake Bay using the Pocomoke River to sail as far north as they could. In 1615 to 1700 the old Pocomoke River was navigable to the Maryland and Delaware lines. Those who settled near the mouth of the river were the first settlers.

The southwestern section of Lower Sussex County in Delaware near the boundary line with Maryland was known as the Broad Creek Hundred. The first tract of which there is record in this area is one to William Green for 2500 acres, granted in the year 1680 and located west of the road from Laurel to Seaford and running to within a 'few hundred yards of Bethel.

Sometime about 1700 some Jones families traveled north across the state line as it now exists into Del. The Nanticoke Indians were numerous in this vicinity and in order to aid immigration and furnish the Indians a permanent home, the General Assembly of Maryland in 1717 passed an act directing George Gale, Samuel Worthington and Charles Ballard to lay out tracts for a reservation for the Nanticokes. The commissioners selected as a site this tract and one of 500 acres on the south side, upon which the town of Laurel now stands. The land passed on Dec. 4, 1717, the consideration paid Green being 50,000 pounds of tobacco. The Indians occupied the land for many years and built a harbor on the farm now owned by Levin Hitch.

There were very few settlements made in the Broad Creek Hundred prior to 1730 and those mainly on the streams in the southwestern section. The land was very fertile and our forefathers probably found it to be a good place for farming and they made a good living. They came from Maryland and Virginia. This could be the area where the Jones family settled.

As early as 1681 the Penns, proprietors of Pennsylvania, quarreled with the proprietors of

Maryland, the Calverts, lords Baltimore, over the boundary line. They agreed to have the line resurveyed in 1763. The division line was named Mason and Dixon's line after the two astronomers who did the surveying, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon. Prior to the settlement of the division line in 1767 the Penns never exercised their authority in this hundred.

By an act of May 24, 1768, the Indians in the area were moved further west and the State of Maryland authorized William Allen, Levin Gale and Henry Steele to sell the land.

There does not appear of record any mention of any land granted by the Penns prior to 1776. In that year large numbers emigrated from the upper part of the State and from Pennsylvania. Our ancestors were not part of this group. The Jones family had settled on land now in Delaware, formerly in Somerset County, Maryland, prior to the settlement of the boundary line.

However, on May 20, 1776, Jacob Jones obtained a warrant for 45 acres of land known as "Whittenton's Folly" on the west side of Gum Swamp in Little Creek Hundred of lower Sussex Cty., Del., signed by Wm. Penn. This hundred is adjacent to the Broad Creek Hundred.

The assessment list of Broad Creek Hundred for the year 1785 lists Jacob Jones and Nehemiah Jones. It is possible that they were brothers but there is no proof to this relationship.

The reconstructed 1790 census of Delaware for the Broad Creek Hundred of Sussex County lists Jacub Jones and Nehemiah Jones. The 1800 census of Broad Creek Hundred as published by Gerald and Doris Ollar Maddox, 1964, lists only heads of households and shows Jacob Jones living with two males and one female under 10 years of age, one male between 16/26 and 1 female, 26/45.

Tradition has it that there have been six generations with the name Jacob Jones. We have record of three generations. The Jacob Jones who was born around 1750 and settled in Delaware was married to Mary Magdalene Rodney. His son, Jacob, was born 1785 and was married to Love Cannon Melson. His son, Jacob, was born 1844 and was married to Julia A. Magee Phillips, first and Sarah Eleanor James Worrington, second. Jacob had no sons named Jacob by Julia or Sarah.

The earliest records we have is a Bible printed in 1832 with the inscription "Jacob Jones Family Bible" in which there is record of Jacob Jones, born Sept. 24, 1785, son of Jacob S. and Mary Jones. This Bible is in the possession of Pauline Jones Mills; a copy of the births, marriages and deaths are on file with the Delaware State Archives.

Another son of Jacob S. and Mary Jones was Jeremiah, born June 12, 1776. it is ascertained from this fact that Jacob & Mary Jones were most likely born around the year 1750.

Around 1826 Jacob was in a low state of health and therefore had his will prepared. It was dated Feb. 18, 1826 and was probated Jan. 30, 1828. He lists real estate property known as Peapatch field, Downes Luck and Noddlehead. His wife, Mary, predeceased him since there is no mention of her in the will. The final resting place for Jacob and Mary is not known.

From the interpretation of the will there is a probability of two more daughters, whose names

we do not know. One daughter was married to Collins and had sons, Peter and Joseph. Another daughter married Marvel and had four children, Prisilla, Aron, Nancy and Liza.

Another method of establishing relationships is by geographical location. On the Delaware census for 1850 there is a John and Sally Collins living in the Cedar Creek Hundred of lower Sussex Cty., Del. John was 70 years of age, a laborer and born in Del. Sally was 60 years of age and born in Del. This would establish her birth in the year 1790.

There is a Joseph A. Collins also living in lower Sussex Cty. Del. in the Nanticoke Hundred. He was a farmer with real estate valued at $1600. He was 40 years of age. This would place his birth in the year 1810. He was married to Hannah and had children Maria, Martha, Hannah, Nancy and Mary.

Therefore, Jacob and Mary Jones' daughter born in 1790 could be Sally Jones. She married John Collins around 1809 and had a son, Joseph, born in 1810.

In the Dagsboro Hundred of Sussex County, Delaware, Levina Marvel was living with her son, Aaron Marvel. She was 77 years of age and born in Delaware. Aaron was 44 years of age, a farmer with $1000 worth of real estate property. He was married to Julia A. Marvel and had children, Mille A. five years old; George, two years old and Aaron B, one month old.

Since Levina was 77 years of age in 1850, she would have been born in 1773 and her son, Aaron, would have been born in 1806. Aaron would have been around 20 years old at the time Jacob made his will. It would seem that he is the Aron mentioned in his grandfather's will and that Levina Marvel is the daughter of Jacob and Mary Jones.

Mentioned in Jacob's will is a grandson, Nathaniel Jones, to whom he bequeathed fifty cents. Jacob's son, Jacob, had a child by the name Nathaniel Wright Jones who would have been six at the time. There are no other Nathaniels of whom we have record unless William had children.

Other children of Jacob and Mary Jones mentioned in the will are:

2. Jeremiah Jones, refer to chapter on Jeremiah Jones

3. Sarah Jones

4. Isaac Jones

5. William Jones

6. Comfort Jones

7. Jacob Jones, refer to chapter on Jacob Jones

8. Rachael Jones

 

3. Sarah Jones, dau. of Jacob, 1, was baptized March 20, 1779 at the Lewes Delaware Pres'n Church

in the Indian River Creek Hundred of Lower Sussex County, Delaware. Rev. Joseph Brown Turner has done much research on the Jones families in this area and they are part of the records of the Delaware State Archives.

Sarah was not married and lived with her sister, Comfort, in the house which stood in front of Harry Stephen's house. According to the 1850 census they were living in the 11th subdivision of Sussex Cty., Del.

Sarah is not listed on the Delaware census for 1860, therefore, she died between 1850 and 1860. She is buried in back of the barn in an unmarked grave.

 

4. Isaac Jones, son of Jacob, 1, was married to Levinah. Her name is listed in Jacob's will.

There is on record a marriage of an Isaac Jones to Levinah Wingate on Dec. 23, 1794 in the Lewes Del. Presbtn Church records. This information is on file with the Delaware State Archives as part of the Rev. Jos. Brown Turner's private records.

They had five children, Isaac, Mihaley, Jeremiah, Burton and John. Sometime between 1816 and 1826 Isaac died and his father bequeathed a tract of land known as Peapatch field to Levinah for fifteen years to help her to raise her children. The children were each bequeathed twenty dollars as fast as they come of age.

Nothing has been recorded of Isaac's family but utilizing the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Federal Census for Delaware for lower Sussex Cty., we learn that John Jones was born 1816 in Delaware. He was a farmer living in the Broad Creek Hundred with real estate valued at @1500 in 1860 and $2000 in 1870. His personal property was valued at $600 in.1860 and $400 in 1870.

His wife, Elizabeth, was born 1816 in Maryland. They were married around 1839. Their first child, Nancy, was born 1840 in Delaware. She was still living with her parents in 1870. Their second dau., Lavinia, was born Oct. 15, 1846 in Delaware. She died Oct. 25, 1872 at the age of 26 years, 10 days and is buried at the Jacob Jones cemetery on the road between Lowes Crossroads and Gumboro, Del. Their third dau., Mary Ann, was born Sept. 1, 1851 in Del. and was not living at home in 1870.

Refer to page 144, 500. She most likely married Joseph Benjamin Jones. John and Elizabeth had no sons.

John died Dec. 2, 1876 at the age of 61 years, 27 days. This would place his birth on Nov. 5,

1815. Elizabeth died June 16, 1875 at the age of 59 years, 2 months, 2 days, which would place her date of birth on Apr. 14, 1816. They are buried in the Jacob Jones cemetery, therefore, John is most likely a relative. It seems as though he is the son of Isaac and Levinah Jones.

Another son, Burton Jones, was living in lower Sussex Cty. in the Dagsboro Hundred during the 1870's. His post office address was Millsboro, Del.

He was born 1812 in Delaware and was a house carpenter. His wife's name was Hetty. She was born 1839 in Maryland. They were married around 1862 since their first child, John M. was born 1863 in Maryland.

Their other children and their ages as of 1870 were James H., age 5 and born in Md.; Lavenia M., age 4 and born in Del.; Martha, age 2 and born in Del.; Burton, born Jan., 1870 in Del.

It would appear that Burton and John, living in the same geographical area and having birth dates around the same time, 1812 and 1816, are both sons of Isaac and Levinah Jones. The whereabouts of their other children, Jeremiah, Mihaley and Isaac, cannot be established at this time by using the census records6 We also do not know when Isaac and Levinah Jones died or where they are buried.

ch. 9. Burton Jones, see text above

10. John Jones, see text above

11. Jeremiah Jones, unk.

12. Mihaloy Jones, unk.

13. Isaac Jones, unk.

5. William Jones was the son of Jacob, 1. He was bequeathed "50 cents and no more" on his father's will dated Feb. 14, 1826.

It is possible that this is the same William Jones who married Ellen Rhodes Burton of Sussex County, Del. on Feb. 11, 1795. This information was part of the records of Rev. Turner on file with the Delaware State Archives.

6. Comfort Jones, dau. of Jacob, 1, was born March 11, 1783 in Del. She was single and lived with

her sister, Sarah, in the house that stood in front of Harry Stephen's house. She and her sister are listed on the 1850 Federal Delaware census as living in the 11th subdivision of Sussex Cty.

Her occupation was listed as "Weaver" on the 1860 census. She owned personal property valued at $100. She died Jan. 31, 1861 and her will was probated in Delaware on Feb. 7, 1861.

8. Rachael Jones, dau. of Jacob, l, was married to Timmons. She is mentioned in her father's will and was bequeathed fifty cents & no more. The will was dated Feb. 14, 1826 so we know she was living at that time. We do not know anymore of her family.

There were no grandchildren listed in Jacob's will, therefore, Rachael's children were either married or she had no children.

Aaron Timmons was living in the BroadCreek Hundred of Sussex County Delaware as of the 1920 census. He was listed as the head of the household and was 45 plus (born before 1775). His wife was also 45 plus. He had one boy 16-26 and one girl 16-26. They could have married before 1826 and therefore was not listed in their grandfather's will.

Around 1828 Jeremiah's father died and bequeathed him one tract of land called "Downes's Luck" being 50 acres more or less and a right to part of a tract called "Noddlehead." On August 17, 1822 he purchased from Jonathan Fooks of Worcester Cty., Md. a tract of land called "Partnership" being 13 ½ acres bordering land of Thomas West, William Jones and tract called "Double Trouble" for $10.

"The deceased united with the M. E. church in childhood and has ever lived a consistent member of that church. The sequel of her beautiful life is found in the one word Love. It was her love for the children that endeared her to them; it was her love for the young people that made her their confidant and strength in the hour of joy or sorrow; it was her love for the aged that helped them over the rough places and it vas her love for all mankind that made her a close friend of the lowly Nazarine, and in the passing of her commendable life we are enabled to better understand the words of long ago; 'Death is swallowed up in Victory.'''

Anna Harrison, 665, wrote the following letter to Pauline about Pauline's mother, Sarah.

"Dear Ida Pauline Jones,

Yesterday afternoon, I sat down and scribbled a few verses of poetry about grandmother, and this morning I have put them together and written them on the typewriter. There is so much good that could be written about grandmother; however, I do not feel capable of putting it on paper. The verses that I have written are the thoughts which came to me...... am only an amateur at such.

Anna

The person about whom I am writing was a grand old lady, it is so true. When one called on her, she was inviting, and grew close to all that she knew,

She had a very keen sense of humor and laughed and talked with such glee, as she spoke of her trials without a murmur 141 she was a very strong character, you could see.

She and Pauline were always together, in all they planned and undertook to do. She was indeed a very kind, loving mother, and very little she was not willing to go thru.

Grandmother and Pauline lived for each other, as much as any daughter and mother could do. Pauline, oh surely did love her mother and her mother loved Pauline, it is true,

Now death came along and took grandmother, up to heaven we think she surely did go. Some day we'll meet her again and be together, and happy will be the day that we all know.

She would not want to be back, so don't grieve, Her pain and suffering were too much to endure, but patiently she did wait from this earth to leave, and reap her reward for a life well spent, I'm sure."

In 1880 George and Louise were living in the Gumboro Hundred of Sussex Cty., Del. They rented the Robinson farm around 1899 for about five years. Elizabeth relates that Papa had kidney colic while on the farm. Dr. Franklin Jones called in a Dr. Dick from Philadelphia and a Dr. Hearn, I think, from Laurel. Before they operated Papa passed several stones. This illness as well as a desire for a better education for his sons may have caused him to move to a 2h acre lot and home on North Bedford St., Georgetown, Del.

George had a lumber mill near Nassau and one night Elizabeth and her mother stayed in his cabin at the lumber camp. He had an office there and the tall trees and fragrances of the pines were everywhere.

In 1906 while George was away taking care of his lumber business, his father went off to the farm. He came down with pneumonia and died at the home of his eldest son, Joseph.

Elizabeth remembers that a tramp was taken ill while at their house. Dr. Paynter said that he had typhoid fever and urged mother to send him away. She would not. She had a bed set up in our winter kitchen and she took care of him until he died. Fortunately, none of us came down with the disease.

JACOB S. JONES

 

Jacob S. Jones and his wife, Mary Magdalene Rodney, settled in Lower Sussex County, Delaware prior to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. This bit of history has been handed down from generation to generation.

At the first Jones family reunion on Oct. 8, 1949 Rev. Ralph C. Jones gave a historical background of the Jones family. He stated that in all probability the Jones family came over to this country from Wales and other areas of the British Isles. The Welch people came over in the year 1607. The settlers of that period came up the Chesapeake Bay using the Pocomoke River to sail as far north as they could. In 1615 to 1700 the old Pocomoke River was navigable to the Maryland and Delaware lines. Those who settled near the mouth of the river were the first settlers.

The southwestern section of Lower Sussex County in Delaware near the boundary line with Maryland was known as the Broad Creek Hundred. The first tract of which there is record in this area is one to William Green for 2500 acres, granted in the year 1680 and located west of the road from Laurel to Seaford and running to within a 'few hundred yards of Bethel.

Sometime about 1700 some Jones families traveled north across the state line as it now exists into Del. The Nanticoke Indians were numerous in this vicinity and in order to aid immigration and furnish the Indians a permanent home, the General Assembly of Maryland in 1717 passed an act directing George Gale, Samuel Worthington and Charles Ballard to lay out tracts for a reservation for the Nanticokes. The commissioners selected as a site this tract and one of 500 acres on the south side, upon which the town of Laurel now stands. The land passed on Dec. 4, 1717, the consideration paid Green being 50,000 pounds of tobacco. The Indians occupied the land for many years and built a harbor on the farm now owned by Levin Hitch.

There were very few settlements made in the Broad Creek Hundred prior to 1730 and those mainly on the streams in the southwestern section. The land was very fertile and our forefathers probably found it to be a good place for farming and they made a good living. They came from Maryland and Virginia. This could be the area where the Jones family settled.

As early as 1681 the Penns, proprietors of Pennsylvania, quarreled with the proprietors of

Maryland, the Calverts, lords Baltimore, over the boundary line. They agreed to have the line resurveyed in 1763. The division line was named Mason and Dixon's line after the two astronomers who did the surveying, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon. Prior to the settlement of the division line in 1767 the Penns never exercised their authority in this hundred.

By an act of May 24, 1768, the Indians in the area were moved further west and the State of Maryland authorized William Allen, Levin Gale and Henry Steele to sell the land.

There does not appear of record any mention of any land granted by the Penns prior to 1776. In that year large numbers emigrated from the upper part of the State and from Pennsylvania. Our ancestors were not part of this group. The Jones family had settled on land now in Delaware, formerly in Somerset County, Maryland, prior to the settlement of the boundary line.

However, on May 20, 1776, Jacob Jones obtained a warrant for 45 acres of land known as "Whittenton's Folly" on the west side of Gum Swamp in Little Creek Hundred of lower Sussex Cty., Del., signed by Wm. Penn. This hundred is adjacent to the Broad Creek Hundred.

The assessment list of Broad Creek Hundred for the year 1785 lists Jacob Jones and Nehemiah Jones. It is possible that they were brothers but there is no proof to this relationship.

The reconstructed 1790 census of Delaware for the Broad Creek Hundred of Sussex County lists Jacub Jones and Nehemiah Jones. The 1800 census of Broad Creek Hundred as published by Gerald and Doris Ollar Maddox, 1964, lists only heads of households and shows Jacob Jones living with two males and one female under 10 years of age, one male between 16/26 and 1 female, 26/45.

Tradition has it that there have been six generations with the name Jacob Jones. We have record of three generations. The Jacob Jones who was born around 1750 and settled in Delaware was married to Mary Magdalene Rodney. His son, Jacob, was born 1785 and was married to Love Cannon Melson. His son, Jacob, was born 1844 and was married to Julia A. Magee Phillips, first and Sarah Eleanor James Worrington, second. Jacob had no sons named Jacob by Julia or Sarah.

The earliest records we have is a Bible printed in 1832 with the inscription "Jacob Jones Family Bible" in which there is record of Jacob Jones, born Sept. 24, 1785, son of Jacob S. and Mary Jones. This Bible is in the possession of Pauline Jones Mills; a copy of the births, marriages and deaths are on file with the Delaware State Archives.

Another son of Jacob S. and Mary Jones was Jeremiah, born June 12, 1776. it is ascertained from this fact that Jacob & Mary Jones were most likely born around the year 1750.

Around 1826 Jacob was in a low state of health and therefore had his will prepared. It was dated Feb. 18, 1826 and was probated Jan. 30, 1828. He lists real estate property known as Peapatch field, Downes Luck and Noddlehead. His wife, Mary, predeceased him since there is no mention of her in the will. The final resting place for Jacob and Mary is not known.

From the interpretation of the will there is a probability of two more daughters, whose names

we do not know. One daughter was married to Collins and had sons, Peter and Joseph. Another daughter married Marvel and had four children, Prisilla, Aron, Nancy and Liza.

Another method of establishing relationships is by geographical location. On the Delaware census for 1850 there is a John and Sally Collins living in the Cedar Creek Hundred of lower Sussex Cty., Del. John was 70 years of age, a laborer and born in Del. Sally was 60 years of age and born in Del. This would establish her birth in the year 1790.

There is a Joseph A. Collins also living in lower Sussex Cty. Del. in the Nanticoke Hundred. He was a farmer with real estate valued at $1600. He was 40 years of age. This would place his birth in the year 1810. He was married to Hannah and had children Maria, Martha, Hannah, Nancy and Mary.

Therefore, Jacob and Mary Jones' daughter born in 1790 could be Sally Jones. She married John Collins around 1809 and had a son, Joseph, born in 1810.

In the Dagsboro Hundred of Sussex County, Delaware, Levina Marvel was living with her son, Aaron Marvel. She was 77 years of age and born in Delaware. Aaron was 44 years of age, a farmer with $1000 worth of real estate property. He was married to Julia A. Marvel and had children, Mille A. five years old; George, two years old and Aaron B, one month old.

Since Levina was 77 years of age in 1850, she would have been born in 1773 and her son, Aaron, would have been born in 1806. Aaron would have been around 20 years old at the time Jacob made his will. It would seem that he is the Aron mentioned in his grandfather's will and that Levina Marvel is the daughter of Jacob and Mary Jones.

Mentioned in Jacob's will is a grandson, Nathaniel Jones, to whom he bequeathed fifty cents. Jacob's son, Jacob, had a child by the name Nathaniel Wright Jones who would have been six at the time. There are no other Nathaniels of whom we have record unless William had children.

Other children of Jacob and Mary Jones mentioned in the will are:

2. Jeremiah Jones, refer to chapter on Jeremiah Jones

3. Sarah Jones

4. Isaac Jones

5. William Jones

6. Comfort Jones

7. Jacob Jones, refer to chapter on Jacob Jones

On or around Feb. 14, 1826, Jacob's father wrote his will and made his son the executor. It bequeathed all lands that he owned to his son and his heirs. It also bequeathed some land to his other son, Jeremiah.

On Nov. 22, 1856 Jacob and Love sold one acre of land for $45 to the Trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church. A church was erected on the site in 1857 and it was known as the Jones Methodist Episcopal Church of Lowes X Roads, Del.

An early map of the Broad Creek Hundred area of Sussex Cty., Del. shows J. Jones lived in District 80, Lowes X Roads PO. In 1860 he was a farmer with real estate valued at $2000 and personal property valued at $550. Mary Jane Collins, dau. of Amelia, lived with her grandparents. A servant, Rachael Justice, age 48, born in Md., was living on the farm in 1860.

Jacob and Love both passed away in 1866. Love died June 23 at the age of 67 years, 7 months, 2 days and Jacob died July 14. Jacob's gravestone is worn but shows his age at 80 years, 9 months and 20 days. They are both buried at the Jacob Jones Cemetery near Gumboro, Del.
