As I do my research on the white Koonce family, I was recently contacted by a person who shares ancestry with an ancestor of JCB Koonce (of Jones County, North Carolina). Interestingly enough, the person that contacted me is also a descendant of one of the families I’ve gathered a little bit of information on from Washington County. Small world!
But, this person sent me headstone pictures of JCB and his wife Elenor. JCBs family is one of my candidate families for having owned my Koonce ancestors. Still tracking that down, but I appreciate the grave photos. JCB stands for John Counsel Bryan Koonce. These are their gravestones in Jones County,NC.
