    SANTUCK - Just as the Jeters of Suffolk County, England, were memorialized with markers in the floor of the chapel of St. Margaret's Church, the Jeters who trace their roots to Union County will be memorialized in a new chapel to be built in their family cemetery.

    Ground-breaking for the new chapel, to be constructed in the Jeter Family Cemetery in Santuck, was held Sunday, with the two oldest family members in Union County, Col. John Jeter and retired educator Paul Jeter, both more than 90 years old, using the spades. The ground-breaking followed the annual Jeter family reunion, which draws relatives from many areas and has been held in Union annually for more than 50 years.
