Larry Ingram writes: This house in Benevolence, Georgia, was constructed by my great-grandmother’s brother, Monsh (sic) Keese, around 1880. It was purchased by my maternal grandparents, Crisp Charles Jones and Kathleen Crozier Jones, around 1943, and remained their home until my grandfather died in 1955. I have an abstract-of-title for the property from the late 1800’s to the time my grandparents purchased the home from a Mr. DeVane. The house and approximately 40 acres are still owned by the man who purchased the home and 40 acres from my grandmother for some $8,000 in 1956.
