This cemetery dates back to the 19th century and may be found in old death records as JONES GROVE or RUTHERFORD COLLEGE cemetery. When documenting graves, an actual visit to the cemetery would be beneficial; there is another cemetery in Rutherford College, NC, which was also called Rutherford College in death records.
Local notables buried in the cemetery include Robert Laban Abernethy, educator and founder of Rutherford College. The town of Rutherford College (originally called Excelsior) grew up around Jones Grove Methodist Church and this little cemetery. The church is no more but the cemetery is used and maintained by Abernethy UMC.
