I'm so sorry for your loss. My late husband, Gary Lee Jones son of John Alexander Jones, was kin to Herbert Jones. In the late 1970s we visited Pine Knot and got to know all our Jones relatives at that time. We had since lost touch. I remember Uncle Herb, Uncle Moss, Aunt Vinie, etc. etc. Again I'm so sorry for your loss.
