The second instalment of documents relating to the plantations of El Destino and Chemonie contains records of Chemonie during its first year as part of the Jones property. The estate was located some six miles north of El Destino in Leon County, and was purchased by Mary Savage Nuttall a few months before her marriage to George Noble Jones. The object of the purchase was to give employment to some eighty negroes whom the future Mrs. Jones had inherited from the estate of an uncle, William Savage. It is probable that not all of the group were placed on Chemonie, as the overseer’s report for 1841 gives only fifty persons who drew clothing.
