Jabez Pleiades Marshall

This is a memorial marker placed by the Georgia Baptist Association. Jabez's original marker, if there was one, no longer exists. Note: There is a possibility that Jabez is buried in the Marshall Family Cemetery. Someone added Jabez to the Marshall Family Cemetery and transcribed the marker that you see photographed here BUT there is no marker (memorial or otherwise) at The Marshall Family Cemetery. I have photographed every marker there as well as the memorial markers. The memorial marker at the Marshall Family Cemetery does not list Jabez as being buried there. The marker you see photographed is at the Old Kiokee Church (the original building) on Tubman Road.
