Search Jones Cemetery:

This cemetery is on the Fort Jackson grounds. It is on the west side of Telephone Road and 0.1 mile north of Leesburg Road. It can be seen from the Leesburg Road, and is very close to the location of the Brown's Chapel Methodist Cemetery, which is on the Old Leesburg Road. It is labeled as Cemetery #16, which corresponds to its number on a 1980 Reservation Map by the Army Corps of Engineers.It used to be known as Tucker Cemetery prior to its acquisition by Fort Jackson. It was then renamed many of the cemeteries to reflect the name of the property owner.


The information for this cemetery was obtained from the 1982 Eagle Scout project by Boy Scout Lael H. Hoopes. He compiled an inventory of the graves in the 26 cemeteries that were acquired by Fort Jackson in 1940 when the fort expanded to approximately 53,000 acres by acquiring land that was previously privately owned. This land included many small church and family cemeteries. The families of the deceased in these cemeteries were contacted and given the option of having their deceased relatives relocated to other area cemeteries. Some individual graves were relocated off post while others remained on Fort Jackson. In addition, several of the small churches chose to relocate their entire cemeteries off post.
