    Edwin and Clella Mae Carter did the 3 volume set of Carroll Co TN cemeteries.

    I read on other lavinia tn posts that there was a cemetery at McNail Farm in Lavinia and that the headstones were removed and taken to a lady in Milan TN. I don’t know the address to the farm. Hope this helps.

    “What is the address for the Robeson Cemetery? I believe it may be near Lavinia, TN and was on private property with stones removed

  3. Gerry Gieger says:

    I note that you were not sure about the parents of Jonathan Jones who married Elizabeth Downing…Some of that confusion relates to the Jonathan Jones who was married to Bersheba…

    I believe that William Jones who married Catherine Simpson and Jonathan Jones who married Bersheba were brothers, sons of William Jones Sr. of NJ. Because of the Andrew Downing Bible entries, I believe that the Jonathan Jones RS, who is buried in Fishing Creek Presbyterian Cemetery next to John Downing is the elder son of William Jones (ii) & Catherine Simpson. He was named Administrator of William’s Estate in Chester County.

    Now, to my question. Do you have any further proof showing that Elizabeth Jones who married Andrew Downing and is buried in Mt Hebron Cemetery in Wayne Co. TN is the daughter of William & Catherine (Simpson) Jones???

    I have the Andrew Downing Bible, but it does not specifically say who the parents were, only lists the supposed siblings of Elizabeth.

    I am descended from John & Mary Downing thru Andrew & Elizabeth Downing and need to prove her parents, and where they are buried.

      Hi! I know this is a long time since the last reply/post, but I’m descended through this Jones line (via John Downing Jones/Ann McDowell). I’d love to connect with you to share information!

      • Norma Reynolds says:

        Annette, did you ever connect with Mr. Gieger? I too descend from Andrew Downing and Elizabeth Jones Downing through their daughter Ann Downing who married Walter Baltis Hinkle.
