|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Rising Sun Cemetery is a small rural cemetery located in what was once known as Rising Sun Community on private land a few miles east of Nugen on the Jones/Shackelford County border. Rising Sun apparently was originally settled around 1884. The cemetery was probably begun in the 1880s, however, the oldest gravemarker still legible in the cemetery is that of Lucile Arnold, infant daughter of F. M. and C. E. Arnold, who died on December 11, 1890, just before her first birthday.
Cemetery Note: There has been some discussion in which county this cemetery is located. According to Google Earth, the county line splits the cemetery in about half. While the entrance is in Jones County, most of the graves are in Shackelford Co.
