Jones Farmhouse, Circa 1890, Telfair County

This Queen Anne farmhouse was built by Middleton Jones and was later the home of his son Archie Jones. After many years of decline, it was recently restored by Norman and Sabrina Sellers Varnadoe. The property, which features an open-air chapel among other amenities, is now an event venue known as DoeLee. Sabrina explains that the name is taken from Norman’s last name (Varnadoe) and her middle name (Lee). It’s a beautiful place, located “out in the country” near Lumber City.

    Hi Brian, Michael Williams and his family that live at China Hill are related through marriage. My GGG Grandmother moved to Horse Creek , near China Hill in 1819 . The Williams are descended from one of her Sons Judge Duncan. They are buried at Old McKinnon Cemetery at China Hill.

  2. Wonderful. How would I be able to contact her, Mrs. Sellers? Mildred Gruner mgruner9232@gmail.com
