I don't live in Alabama but I found this
Jones Crossroads was the original name of Vina, AL
Vina is in Franklin Co. AL where Hwy 23 crosses state Hwy 19
Originally called Jones Crossroads for a local family. Later known as New Burleson because it is near the dead town Burleson which was also named for a local family, then it became Vina by an engineer for the Illinois Central Railroad for his wife, Vina. established in 1907.
doesn't say specifically which families. from "
Place Names in Alabama" by Virginia O. Foscue.
