Freda, thanks for the answer. I am trying to find the location of Benjamin A Jones plantation/property. He died in 1859 and was to be buried 'at my homeplace'. I KNOW that his body and that of his wife and son is now in the Giles-Neville Cemetery on HWY 16(?) just a mile or so across the Mississippi state line (I visited it two weeks ago), so I assume it had to have been moved there within the last 50 yrs or so.
Do you know is this land still vacant? Are there any structures left? Hopefully it is not under the WasteManagement Landfill! ANY info you have would be helpful. Please contact me below if it would be more direct. Thanks again.
