  1. Hi! This is Jeff Donaldson. My is family is (Donaldson-Slade) from Bertie County NC.The other day I tied to find Jone’s Hole Cemetery. I could not find it. The direction online did not help me. I found a plantation on Bethlehem Church Road or Moore Road. I think it was the wrong place. I need better directions to Jone’s Hole Cemetery. (I Peter 5:7)

    • You continue past the house on the right for another mile and should come to the graveyard. It was in the garden of the old James Jones home at the Jones Hole. Almost all those old cemeteries were in the garden of their homes. The colored section and old slave grave yard was about 50′ or less to the left of the one now in the middle of a field. No one offered to clear that one when my father cleared our side of the cemetery
      Vegetation is relentless in trying to return the land to nature.

  2. Sally, I have lost contact with Sue Genes & Kendell Sparkman. Jesse Sparkman is my gggrandfather.
