Jones Mill was built by married cousins Jones Fuller and Mary Ann Fuller. Jones, 1792-1844, was the son of first cousins Arthur and Celah Fuller. Mary Ann , 1794-1853, was the daughter of Isham Fuller and his first wife Elizabeth Roberts. Mary Ann and Jones moved to Meriwether County, Georgia and built a mill. They grew quite prosperous and had no children. Mary Ann helped raise and support financially her siblings, half siblings, and nieces and nephews.
After Jones' death in 1844, she married Joel Hood, 1789-1862. She lived out her life at Jones' Mill and so did Joel until his death in 1862.
