The following is a complete listing of the tombstones in the George Whaley or County Line Cemetery in Jones County, NC.

Location on Pleasant Hill Rd right at the Jones County/Lenoir line. As you head towards Pink Hill from the Pleasant Hill Church, there is a field about a couple of hundred yards from the Church on the right hand side. In that field, there is another cemetery which is hidden in the clump of trees that has five or six stones still standing. Right pass that field is a yellowish trailer. You have to pull into the yard of the trailer, go to the begining of the corn field in the back, and right in the curve of the trees, you can see some of the stones.
