     This small cemetery traces its beginnings to the 1870s, although it does not appear in county deed records until 1920. Serving several area communities, it provided a burial place for pioneers of Van Zandt County. The earliest marked grave is that of Samuel G. Parks, who died April 4, 1876. Many more early settlers of the area are interred here, including M. M. (Mike) Robinett (1842-1900), a Confederate veteran of the Civil War. The Jones Cemetery stands as the only physical reminder of some early Van Zandt County settlements, including Jones and Board. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836-1986
