Bones in Alabama
Posted by: Kathy Scogin (ID *****2884) Date: July 17, 2002 at 23:51:46

My great greatgrand mother was Susan Bones b. 1860 in Alabama. Her parents were John D. Bones b. 2-28-1819 in South Carolina d. between 1863-1870, location unknown, and Indiana Sloan b. between 2-14-1822/28 in Dallas County, Alabama d. 10-13-1896 in Mobile, Alabama. I know where Susan and her mother are buried, but not John. I also have a copy of John's amnesty oath, and know that the served on the confederate side in the Civil War. John's parents were Samuel Q. J. Bones and Elizabeth. In the 1820 Wicox County, Alabama census I found a Samuel and J Bone (no 's'), am thinking this is a typo and the "and" may be a "Q". Any thoughts on that theory are appreciated. On the same page of the same census I found Samuel's future daughter-in-law's (Indiana's) father listed (Joshua Sloan), so I feel comfortable with this being the same Samuel. What I can't figure out is the connection to South Carolina. I can't seem to link this family to any Bone or Bones family in SC, though our family records show John D. Bones as being from SC. Also, in 1820, when the census was done for Wilcox County, Alabama, John would have only been a year old. Someone please help me. I've been stuck on this for awhile, and the South Carolina census records have not been transcribed and are near impossible to read. Thanks
