It is possible the cemetery you are looking for is the Old Jones Groove Cemetery, now known as Abernathy Methodist Church Cem., it is located passed where Rutherford Collge was located.
You go past the Methodist Church and there is and old white church on the right, and the cemetery is located on the right of the church, facing the side of the church.

WE have ancesters buried there.
We will be there sometime around August 15, and we will look for thier graves, if we find them we will make pictures and send them to you.

I is a small cemetery and should be esay to locate, if I have the right one.
