From the Route 21/Route 18 split west of Rogersville make a left at the blinking yellow light on to Route 18 South and follow for approximately 8 miles. Turn left on to Blockhouse Run and follow for 2.1 miles. Make a left on to Triump Road and follow for a tenth of a mile until you see a high voltage power line right-of-way. Follow the right-of-way on your right to the top of the hill and a tower. Make a left into the woods and walk until you come to the top of yet another hill where the cemetery is located.
The Jones Cemetery is located in the woods and is in poor condition. The one and only granite stone has fallen from its base but it is still upright and leaning against the base.
This cemetery is very remote and GPS coordinates will almost surely be needed. The cemetery is located on Pennsylvania State Gamelands. Local resident Randy Main, who lives nearby, was very helpful in directing us to the cemetry.
Charles Newman and I walked the cemetery on Nov 14, 2009. This transcription is complete and includes all existing stones. I also have digital photographs of all the stones as well as many views of the cemetery itself and would share them with anyone interested.
