The chapel has been demolished sadly. The first Zion Chapel was built by my great grandfather Rev.Henry Powell Jones who was also Pastor. I would be so grateful for any photographs of or relating to Zion
Hi I am searching for information on Henry Powell Jones too. I am not 100% sure we have the same person as I haven't bought any of the certificates yet. I have seen you mention the obituary in 1929, I would love to see that because maybe that would confirm the information that I have. Would you be willing to share this information?
