Midway Methodist Church Cemetery, Alpharetta, Ga.

(click any picture to make it larger & readable)

I haven’t posted a cemetery in a long time. I haven’t been trying to avoid it, but happenings, ideas, and newsy things kept popping up. And not to mention, to do a cemetery posting is more of an effort.... ahem!

This cemetery is just about halfway between Alpharetta and Cumming, Georgia, right in the middle of what used to be Milton County, until that county was abolished. Now it is very near the line of Forsyth and Fulton Counties, and I am not positive which county Midway is in.

As far as these pictures are concerned they are mostly but one on Anna’s mother’s mother’s side of the family. There are about five other Jones’ markers not shown.

Anna’s great grandparents, her mother’s father’s parents.

Anna’s grandfather, her mother's father.

Annie Lura Jones is Anna’s first cousin, twice removed. She lived only 31 years.

Don Keith Jones is Anna’s 2nd cousin, once removed. He lived only 22 years and apparently by his marker, loved the great outdoors.

Gertrude Jones Woods was Anna’s great aunt. She loved to quilt which she was very creative at.

Henry Dillard Jones was Anna 1st cousin, twice removed.

Anna’s grandmother, Myrtle Irene Jones Foster

Randall Hermon Jones is 2nd cousin, once removed. Randall must have played good music on the guitar.

Vernice Jones Wood was Anna’s great aunt.

Walter V. and Mintoria Mathis Jones are Anna’s great grandparents; her mother’s mother’s parents.

These three boys died a birth. They are Anna’s mother’s brothers.

That's an odd name, I've never heard it before. But it's pretty!

I wonder if it is Mintoria or Mintora?

The records I have says Mintoria but her marker plainly says Mintora.

My grandmother, my father's mother, name was Mintoria Victoria Tyson Hunter, or Minnie for short.
