Jones

Jones was at the juncture of Farm Road 1255 and State Highway 110, eleven miles northeast of Canton in northeastern Van Zandt County. In the 1870s it had a church and school. Around that time four Jones brothers started a cemetery on the survey of H. W. Jones. The local school reached an enrollment of thirty-eight in 1906, and the 1936 county highway map showed a business, a church, a school, and several dwellings near the Texas Short Line Railway. In 1965 the town had a business and the church, but by 1981 only the Jones Cemetery and several dwellings by the highway remained.
