Hello. Looking for any info on Leon Roscoe Jones. He died in Sacramento Co. in 1966 at age 38 or so. He was born in Seminole, OK, and I was told he was in the service, possibly the Merchant Marines. His body is interred at Shannon-Rose Hill Cemetery in Ft. Worth, TX, along with several of his relatives. He had a brother, Levi H. Jones, who was older and served in the Navy in WWII (around Pearl Harbor area) and a father, Andy "Poopdeck" Jones, both of whom lived in Ft. Worth, TX. To my knowledge, Leon never married. Is there anyone who could do a lookup, maybe in newspaper obits, etc?? I was 9 when he died, and never knew him. My mother died when I was young, so I have been unable to get very much info about him. Apparently, when he joined the service, he was hard to keep in touch with.

Thanks very much - Carol
