Jones Creek: Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church & Cemetery

Near the Jones Creek community, several Old Three Hundred settlers rest in Peach Point Cemetery. Stephen F. Austin, the Father of Texas, was originally buried at this pioneer cemetery in Jones Creek. The cemetery was part of the Peach Point Plantation, which Austin considered to be his only home in Texas. The Plantation was the home of Austin's sister Emily Austin Bryan Perry. He is now buried in the state cemetery in Austin.
