  1. More than likely Dr. Beverly N. [Nicholas] Jones was the Grandson of Dr. Beverly Jones (1811, Martinsville, Va. – 1902, Bethania, NC) who was the physician in Bethania from 1848 until his death. He married Julia Amelia Conrad and they lived on Oak Grove Plantation in Bethania. Dr. Beverly N. Jones [b:1892 in Oak Grove Plantation, Stokes County] was the son of Abram Gabriel Jones (also a physician)

  2. Dr. Beverly N. Jones grandfather was my great-great grandmother’s slave owner. She was very proud to come from the Jones’ plantation according to her slave narrative. Her name was spelled incorrectly as Betty Cofer, her name was Betty Koger of Bethania Rural Hall Road. There is a fire station on her land now. The land was her father’s land Wesley Lash. Wesley Lash was the slave of Israel Lash who founded Wachovia, bank. My great -great grandmother’s slave narrative is in the Library of Congress under Betty Cofer, Wachovia on the Jones Homestead. Betty married a James Madison Koger who came from Patrick County Va. with Mr. RJReynolds to start a tobacco company called RJReynonlds Tobacco Co. according to Betty’s slave narrative. She said the Moravian’s built a church for the Blacks in Bethania, my home church, Bethania A. M. E. Zion in 1850. My great- great, great grandfather helped to build the Oak Grove School for the Blacks and my mother attended the one room school for the Blacks, Her name is Patty Lash Martin. She is 86 years old as of this date, 11/17/16.

  3. Dr Beverly Jones b 1811, was my great-great grandfather. I have been doing research on my family, and read about “Bettie ” in a report about Bethania written in 2010. I would like to contact Janet Martin-Cason to learn more about her family. I live in Minnesota.

  4. Dr. Jones is my Great-Great-Grandfather, too. I believe the Dr. Jones portrayed above is a son of Dr. Abram Jones. Dr. Abram as the first born son of Dr. and Mrs. Jones
