Green B Jones Home

From the Wise County GenWeb site, "Early Settlements of Wise County" by Emory Hamilton; Green B Jones Home: Green Berry Jones was the second settler of Prince's Flat (now Norton VA). He was very reserved in manner and was very neat in his dress. He was fairly well educated and in his younger days had studied Ventriloquism and Hypnotism and at one time it is said he followed a circus and practiced these arts. He spent his declining years at this place and seldom went on the streets of the town but amused himself by watching the people travel the streets through a field glass. Near the house was a spring and it is said that Mrs. Jones always kept a fresh, clean gourd at the spring for the convenience of thirsty travelers and that one of her last acts was to put a new gourd at the spring.
