Notes for Mahala "Hale" (Morris) JONES
"Mahala's mother wasn't married when she was born. Her mother then married Enoch B. Jones. So Mahala used the name Jones as well as Morris."

A phone conversation with Mrs. Harold Dillon (Deloris) confirmed that the tombstone to the right of George Wilson Dillon was Mahala's. Harlod is Mahala's grandson, but at the time of our converstation he was too ill to speak.

The Dillon Creek Cemetery is located as follows: Traveling on West Virginia Route 3 from Beckley to Glen Daniel. Turn right at the light in Glem Daniel (still traveling on West Virginia Route 3). Turn Right on the first paved road after passing Liberty High School. The road stops at County Rounte 2, Sand Lick Road, turn left on Sand Lick Road. Travel past a red house with a tin roof (this is the home of George Dillon who knows the location of many cemeteries in the area). Continue traveling on Sand Lick road, after passing two mobile homes located close together on the right side of the road, travel over the next hill and a gravel road is located on the right. This is Dillon Creek Road. There is a cemetery on the hill that is clearly visible from the beginning of Dillon Creek Road, this is not the cemetery with Mahala and George Wilson Dillon. Travel as far as possible on Dillon Creek Road and you come to a gate, if Mrs. Harold Dillon (Deloris) is home, she will unlock the gate for you, if not, you must walk from here. From the gate, the cemetery is about a half a mile on the left setting up on a hill, it is just after the road passes back across Dillon Creek. If the gate is open, you can drive all the way to the cemetery. These directions are as of 12/31/2002. 10

The 1870 Census shows Mahala Jones living with Mary A. Fips (Mahala's sister-in-law). The household also includes the following Fips: Jesse (George C), Crocket, Henderson (Fielding), Mary M. The relationship of these people is unclear. Also in the house are two of Mahala's children, both age 2, Butcher and Catherine.56
