Jones - Riggs Cemetery
Location: Jones Rd (SR 1100) on right in field
Directions:
From Roxboro, take 49S to Gordonton, turn left on Wheeler’s Church Road (SR 1102), turn right on Jones Road at Wheeler’s Church. Go past the intersection of Ragland Road (SR 1101) about mile on right in field.
Access:
Accessable from the road when there are no crops in the field. We had missed seeing this cemetery on a previous search because of the corn growing here last summer.
Survey:
January 1, 2006 by Ken and Becky Dalton with additional info from W Latham Phelps
GPS:
36 14 55.3 N 079 07 28.2 W
Notes:
This cemetery is a match with WPA # 171 and the PCHS survey labeled "Riggs-Jan 1972"
