Jesse Ammons moved to Paulding County, which later became Polk County, in the late 1830s or early 1840s.  He owned 1,300 acres in the Ammons Spring area.  His plantation, “Pinehurst Dell,” joined the 2000-acre Young Plantation.  It was reported that he bought the property because he felt that the climate around Ammon Springs would be better for his wife’s health.

F.P. Jones died 09 Apr 1907. His obituary was copied from Georgia Historic Newspapers, the Digital Library of Georgia: The Cedartown Standard, 11 Apr 1907.
