Tombstone Tuesday – Julian Jones – Barren County, Kentucky

by Sherry Stocking Kline

I snapped this Tombstone for a couple of reasons. One, I hoped he was family, and Two, it just caught my eye.  It stood there, and though it said  “Gone, but not forgotten,” it seemed, well, lonely.

And like some tombstones that you see, it just made me wonder, who was he?  Why is he buried there all by himself?  What did he  do for a living? What did he die of?

All those questions ran through my mind, but I guess first and foremost, was the question, is he part of my family?

On the Stone:

Julian Jones
1863 – 1932
Gone But Not Forgotten

Today I don’t have those answers, and even though he is buried near my Smith family stones, I don’t have the answer to the  “is he family” question.

But it’s a puzzle that I plan to solve!

  • You’re right — it does seem like a lonely stone — stark and alone. The kind that haunts one to find the answers. Good Hunting.

    • Doesn’t it, though. I think I snapped that photo more for that reason than the name. I’ve found some info about A Julian Jones, but I’m not 100% sure it is him, so won’t post it till I’m much more positive, and so far, no links to ‘my’ Jones family. Thank you for stopping by!
